Matcha meets pistachio

Energy ball mania #7: Matcha meets pistachio

Nope, it’s not over yet (and there is plenty more to come – yikes!) . I love matcha and, in feeding my raw energy ball mania, I am trying to find a recipe with a fine balance between preserving the specificity of the taste and the bitterness that matcha can easily give. I think this recipe achieves it [+]

Raw lime

Energy ball mania #6: Raw lime this time (with rhyme)

How far do you think the energy ball mania will go? Up to which #? I think it is likely to become a double digit number!! Yikes !!! These are the (temporary) winner of a little survey I did among friends and colleagues, offering them a choice between two kinds. (I won’t tell you which one [+]

Cinnamon balls

Energy ball mania #5: Cinnamon coats walnut

Yes, yes, it does not stop. It’s a mania I tell you. And it’s very much encouraged by a real appreciation by my colleagues. They are my energy ball testers, and I am ever grateful to them. These ones were inspired from an Instagram post by @veganne_. I loooove cinnamon (have you ever sprinkled it [+]

Matcha cocoa balls

Energy ball mania #4: Matcha matches cocoa (and almonds)

I know, it may be too much. But I can’t help it. Not only do I like energy balls, but when I make them, I want to have a choice, so I make different varieties at a time. So, here is number two of the weekend. For about 10, you will need: 110 grams date [+]

Tahini coconut balls

It is episode 3 in the series. I can’t get enough of the little power balls, so any time I find a new recipe for inspiration, I have to make them. I only don’t like sultanas as dried fruits, but anything else goes ! These babies are really really, I mean, really, really, seriously yummy. I [+]

Peanut butter brownie balls

Energy ball mania! Peanut butter brownies in a ball

This energy ball mania comes from a dear friend of mine. She has such a sweet attention that every time she comes to Paris from The Hague, she brings me a variety of raw vegan energy balls. Right, they give energy, so I focus all my energy then in eating them all at once. It [+]

Choco zucchini muffins

The leanest choco (& zucchini!) muffins

I made these a few times and they get better and better. I love the fact that they are moist and very chocolate-y, and therefore so so indulgent, and at the same time guilt-free. They are excellent when you have that chocolate craving (again! I have it quite often, hence my several chocolate-based recipes, check [+]

Brownie tartlet at its simplest

I moved to a new flat last week and my food stocks suffered. The cupboards are still relatively empty and the fridge and freezer even emptier. So, this simple recipe I found from Georgia Harding’s Wellnourished website, was a great response to satisfy my cravings for chocolate sweetness in a healthy yet quick and fuss-free way, using [+]

Matcha granola
