3 Ingredient Chocolate Truffles – Chokladtryfflar på 3 ingredienser


Ok… i don’t know if I’m the only one guilty of being stuck at these tasty videos on Facebook, where everything they make look delicious (it’s seldom healthy, and seldom holds nutritional value, but still). Last week I didn’t only look, but I actually MADE two of the recipes that I had seen, and the first one was these delicious 3 ingredient chocolate truffles. I wouldn’t call them truffle truffles, but they were really delicious. In the original video they used chocolate sprinkles, which I exchanged for coconut! Try it out!

Banana & Chocolate Cheesecake – Banan & Choklad Cheesecake


I don’t make a lot of cheesecakes, mostly because of my own impatience, and the slightly longer cooking times. Although, my friend Samantha made a cheesecake a couple of weekends ago, and I got inspired (because it was so good) to make one as well! I altered the recipe slightly by adding one egg since I don’t bake with corn starch. I added some chocolate powder to the crust, and banana to the filling, and it came out to be delicious! Try it yourself!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal – Gröt med smak av Morotskaka


I’ve been reading on a couple of blogs about a carrot cake oatmeal. I thought it sounded delicious, since carrot cake is one of my favorite cakes (my best recipe is here). I didn’t have everything that I needed for the recipes that I had seen online, so I made my own version (and of course all the ingredients are substitute-able for whatever you have at home…). I added chia seeds as well, in order to amp up the protein! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Blood Orange, Almond & Ricotta Upside Down Cake – Glutenfri Blodapelsin, Mandel & Ricotta Upp & Ner Kaka


Ok, I saw this cake on buzz feed originally, and I was mesmerized.I ended up using the smitten kitchen recipe instead, since I know that the recipes are usually really good! The only thing I changed was that I used 3 small blood oranges instead of 2, plus 1 whole for the layering.  I’ve never made an upside down cake before, so I was a little scared of as how it would turn out. I had been warned from other blog commenters that it could be very hard. BUT, I made it! The cake came out perfect, and is so crazy moist! My only caution would be that it is very sweet – so would be perfect to serve with greek yoghurt or sour cream or something like that to balance it out. Otherwise, ready, set, bake!

1 tablespoon water / 1 msk vatten
