Biscuits do not have to be loaded with sugar and unhealthy fat. They can taste good anyway. They are quite rich in fiber and are spiced with a big measure of ginger. They are not very sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth you can add a teaspoon of syrup or honey. If you don’t like ginger you can reduce the amount, or leave it out all together. If you love ginger, use fresh, it’s much nicer than dried. Raisins can be swapped for any other dried fruit. The biscuits are great energisers if you are going for a hike.
Cooking time: 30 minutes, including a paus.
After many years of experimenting I have finally found the perfect nut mix, or trail mix. But, did I invent it myself? No, unfortunately not. I found it on a hike in the north of Sweden, at Grövelsjön in their nice restaurant.
It is so good that I always want to have a pre-mixed jar in my cupboard, ready to grab a handful for a snack or to add in my yoghurt in the morning. Here is the mix:
Cashewnuts (not salted)
The measurements are done “on feeling”. A little bit more of what you like the most. Rost them in the oven without any added fat or oil until they’ve gotten a bit of colour.
This cheesecake is great to make in small mini-portions, to use for a snack, for the picnic or after a workout.
You can of course also make the cheesecake in a larger dish, but then it will be harder to bring somewhere. This snack is actually perfect, both for a picnic, a snack and to have in your bag after a workout. There is just 1 g of carbohydrates in each portion, so it’s also perfect for those on a LCHF diet. Stick some in the freezer too, for a future date.
20 snack portions. Cooking time: 50 minutes, 15 minutes preparation and 35 minutes in the oven. Read the rest of the recipe…
A lukewarm salad good for both lunch and dinner, all year ’round.
Should there be some leftovers, it’s perfect for a lunchbox for tomorrow at work! Save the salad separately from the feta cheese, so you can warm the salad slightly and then sprinkle over the feta cheese.
Cooking time: 30 minutes if you use dried green lentils. 20 minutes if you buy precooked lentils or precook them yourself. Read the rest of the recipe…
