Bonfire Night Treats.

November 5, 2016

Hi everyone - 

 

 

Another 'festive' celebration is here. So here is are your allergy-free sticky toffee apples Sophantastic style. 

 

 

How do I achieve these goodies?

 

Serves 2:

Grab 2 x granny smith apples

Boil for 10 minutes

 

Choice of chocolate or 'toffee' coating.

 

For the chocolate grab some 'Just' chocolate easily found in the Free From aisle and add to a bowl 2 strips with a tsp of water. Microwave until melted ( more water may be needed ).

Once melted dip you apple in the bowl of melted chocolate.

 

For a toffee coating grab 200g of coconut sugar and 2 x tbsp of maple syrup and a dash of apple cider vinegar. Add sugar to the hob, and add 25ml of water, dissolve sugar watching closely, once dissolved add vinegar and syrup and roll/dip your apple into the sticky syrup.

 

Place in the fridge once toppings are added and enjoy whenever you are ready.

 

TOPPINGS!

 

Here is the fun part!

I will leave it totally up to yourselves how you top your apples as everyone is different and my recipes are always a base, where you can add your own touches and tastes to them.

 

Allergy-free topping ideas:

-Crushed nuts (of course if you have a nut allergy avoid!)

-Marshmallows by Mallows they have a vanilla flavor and a strawberry.

-Choco chips - Free From.

-Raisins

-Goody's Goodstuff sweets.

 

 

There are many more but above is just a few ideas - if you aren't gluten and wheat intolerant you can also use crushed Oreo's as an option.

 

I hope you all enjoy Bonfire night and remember having allergies shouldn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun. 

 

Thoughts & comments:

 

Who picked chocolate? Who picked toffee?

 

I chose chocolate!! 
I added crystallized ginger to one of my apples to fit in with the autumn seasonal theme and coconut, raisins and crushed nuts to the other.

I can't wait to dig in a little later.

What sweet treats are you all loving right now? Comment and let me know. I am always looking for new products to try.

 

Love and peace to all xo

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
