No-Bake Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt
Yes, there’s sugar in dates. But unlike refined sugar, dates are also loaded with vitamins and minerals. Add that to the protein from nuts and healthy fats from coconut oil and I think you’ve got yourself a treat that’s gonna do way more for you than your typical chocolate chip cookie.
2 cups raw cashews
1 cup large soft dates
1 Tbsp natural cashew butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 bar of 85% dark chocolate
Sea salt, for sprinkling
Blend cashews in a food processor until they reach the consistency of a coarse flour. Add dates, cashew butter, coconut oil, and vanilla and blend until the mixture sticks together (it may form into a ball in the processor). Add the dark chocolate and pulse until dispersed throughout the mixture. Roll into balls and gently press/form into cookies on a plate or tray. Sprinkle sea salt on top and refrigerate until serving.
Quien le gusta la compota de membrillo? En casa mi abuela no solo hacía dulce de membrillo en otoño sino conserva de membrillo también, que era una especie de compota de membrillo de “larga duración “. En invierno era un gran tesoro!

Cilantro-Lime Black Bean Shrimp and Rice
Yield: 4 servings
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 cup uncooked Jasmine rice (or use any rice that says on the package that it takes 15 minutes to cook it)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed ＋ extra
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed, drained
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped ＋ extra
Heat large skillet until hot on medium heat. Add olive oil - it should run easily but not sizzle or burn. Add shrimp and minced garlic to the skillet, making sure it doesn't crowd, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes over shrimp. Cook shrimp, stirring once or twice, on medium heat, about 3-4 minutes total, until pink in color.
Remove shrimp from the skillet to a plate.
To the same (now empty) skillet, add chicken broth, uncooked rice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to boil. Mix everything well. Reduce the heat to low boil simmer. Cover the skillet with the lid. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, covered, until the rice is cooked through. You might need to add 1/2 cup of water if your rice is not completely cooked through.
Mix in the lime juice, rinsed and drained black beans, and fresh cilantro into the cooked rice.
Add extra lime juice (about 1 tablespoon) and extra chopped fresh cilantro to the plate with shrimp, mix to coat shrimp with lime juice and cilantro. Add the shrimp to the skillet with rice and gently reheat.
Currently trying to perfect a (semi-healthy)Dairy free Chocolate Mint milkshake + this one was SO yummy! *recipe coming soon* Speaking of milkshakes/smoothies...I'd LOVE to know your favourites!! Comment below your favourite smoothie/milkshake recipe cause I've been struggling hardcore with my cooking creativity lately and could use some serious inspiration 👩🏼🍳
Dessert before dinner? Don’t mind if I do 😋. I couldn’t resist freshly baked ‘Apple Cider Donut’ 🍩 (this donut will last me two days) & indulging in moderation is the key😁
Happy Tuesday & Happy Dhanteras to those who celebrate! 🎉
🍦I gotta say, ice cream is my favorite dessert! If you love ice cream as much as I do and care about your nutrition, then halo top is literally MADE for you! 👍
🔥Not only does it taste great, but it also has more protein, 1/3 of the calories, and much less fat! A sweet way to hit all your macros. 😉
👌Let me know what your favorite flavor of halo top is in the comments below ⬇️⬇️
Lunch today because b*tches love colorful salad bowls. It's a well known fact. They're so easy to make and you really can't go wrong! I usually check my fridge to see what produce I have on hand then I'll begin building my salad out of those ingredients. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔥Below is my version, but you can substitute in any raw or roasted veggie. Sometimes I'll even add in sweet potatoes, beans, or a whole grain like quinoa or lentils if I'm in need of something extra.
I massaged a few cups of raw kale with olive oil and sea salt then pan sautéed over high heat until they were bright green and crunchy. While the kale was cooling off I squeezed a quarter of a lemon over the top. Other greens you can use are arugula, spinach, or sautéed collard greens!
I like to have an nice combo veggies on top. Roasted veggies give a nice charred flavor and raw veggies add a nice crunch element. Some other toppings you can add are roasted onions, corn, turnips, beets, or mushrooms. You also can't go wrong with avocado on top.
Here, I used roasted carrots, radishes, and zucchini. I sautéed fresh peas and added in some fresh dill. To top of all off I added a boiled egg and toasted squash seeds. Don't forget to add salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon.
What do you guys like to add to your salad bowls?
