Peanut Butter Cookies πŸͺ


I am totally digging anything with Peanut Butter at the moment. Like literally obsessed. I may be eating it from the jar πŸ€”.
The kids and I made these a while back and you kept asking me to get my
πŸ‘ together and give you the recipe πŸ˜‚.


Ingredients πŸͺ

1 cup of flour (I used spelt but you can use what you wish)
1 cup oats, grounded
1 tsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1/3 cup of peanut butter powder or 1/2 cup peanut butter. (I used @macr0mike powder)
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 egg or chia egg for vegan option
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Toppings of choice to decorate. We loved vegan choc, sultanas or hemp seeds.

Method πŸͺ

  1. In a bowl mix all dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients.
  2. Create a little hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly combine until cookie dough like.
  3. Preheat oven to 180degrees.
  4. On a baking tray roll out 12 cookie balls and then flatten with a fork. Add the toppings.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Consume within 4 days. Store in air tight container.

    Notes – you can swap to cashew butter, almond butter etc. Any will work. You will need a little more milk though as these butters aren’t as oily when combining the mixture.

Vegan Blueberry Pie.

Blueberry Pie πŸ₯§

I was #gifted a few punnets of @australianblueberries and to be honest I was pumped as we eat a punnet every few days in our house. With smoothies, snack boxes, homemade jam and did I mention snack boxes πŸ€ͺπŸ™ˆ. I wanted to make up something different and get creative in the kitchen after we went to the shops. I’m craving 🀰 a blueberry pie with coyo yogurt so I thought why not make one up. It was so easy to make.
.


Ingredients πŸ₯§


2 sheets of short crust pastry(we use a vegan one)
1 large punnet of @australianblueberries
1 small red apple, grated
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 drops of green mandarin essential oil (could totally squeeze a lemon though)
2/3 cup of warm filtered water
3 tbsp. maple syrup

Method πŸ₯§

  1. Preheat the oven to 180degrees.
  2. Line a small Pyrex pie dish.
  3. Throw in the blueberries and the grated apple into the centre.
  4. In a bowl mix, warm water, maple, spices and citrus.
  5. Pour over the apple and blueberry mix.
  6. Pop some of the remaining pastry on top however you wish to style.
  7. Bake in oven for 45minutes on 180 degrees. Then turn down to 100 degrees and bake a further 15minutes.
    .
    Serve warm or cold. We are teaming this with coyo, but you could totally serve it up with ice cream, custard, cream. Your choice. ✌🏼

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

I made these cookies for breakfast as I wanted to have a bit of a change from the usual smoothies and porridge. The cookies are completely egg and dairy free. I got them out the oven and within literally 30 minutes, the tribe and I ate them all. None left haha! I guess they were a winner. They were chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, delicious!

Activated Charcoal to Whiten the Teeth?

Being a registered nurse, I have seen charcoal being used in a very different way to whitening ones teeth. I have seen Health Professionals use it to reduce the effects of food poisoning, to cure hangovers, to treat poison victims and I have also seen it used on massive open wounds to reduce the smell. 
About a month ago, I walked into a cafe and came across Charcoal powder to take orally. As I do, I instantly googled the product and seen numerous benefits from taking the product. It draws toxins from your body and if used correctly can be used to detox the body. So I thought why not give it a a go? I bought it. I feel amazing. But I’m not here to review that type of charcoal that I bought. I’m going to share with you about the teeth whitening. 

When researching and gaining more knowledge on charcoal, I came across Eboniivory. An activated coconut charcoal teeth whitening product that was new on the market. During my research, I read information that you can use charcoal to whiten the teeth. I had tried once with my other product I had purchased, which was straight charcoal and it was so gritty and tasted foul. Eboniivory had created an activated charcoal that was specific for brushing your teeth. With the addition of organic orange, peppermint and Australian lemon myrtle oils, it was more pleasant to use and it wasn’t as gritty on the mouth. My mouth felt clean and fresh after every use. 


EBONiiVORY teeth whitening kit is 39.95 comes with an 80g bag of activated charcoal and a bamboo eco friendly toothbrush (which I might add is super gentle on the gums).


The product is 100% natural, vegan, animal friendly, handmade, raw and organic.

So I have been using the product once a day for 7 days, and to tell you the truth, I’m actually thinking of replacing my toothpaste all together with the product. My teeth feel so clean after every use and my whole mouth feels so fresh too. My teeth are looking super white. People have always commented that my teeth have always been white, but due to my new #mumlife situation my coffee addiction hasn’t been as friendly on my pearly whites. 


My teeth are looking very bright and white, but my white bathroom has definitely needed a clean more often. I’m not a careful person at the best of times when eating, so I have had a few spills. The packet includes instructions on how to keep your bathroom clean while using the product, but I decided to live life on the edge and not read the instructions until day 3 as I was too excited to hook into the product hahaha. Learnt the hard way. Positive note, it did make me clean my bathroom more often. 


Top was 7 days ago and bottom is today. I think they appear whiter. It’s so hard to get photos of your teeth haha. 

So this product is a win win for me. I highly recommend giving it a go. 

Big love, 

Alice xoxo
