Avocado & Pecan Brownies

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

After a long while we are back! And this time we wanted to share something sweet and delicious with you so, let us introduce you to the best Avo & Pecan Brownies!

A few days ago we went to the park to start the “picnic season” and we were in charge of the dessert.

As some of you know, avocado is one of our favourite ingredients so we decided to make it part of our creation. Thanks to this magic ingredient, our brownies are so smooth and moisturised.

Have a look at the recipe and we hope you enjoy them as much as we did (they just lasted a few hours :))

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 mashed avocados
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 8 tablespoons honey
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons water or plant based milk
  • 1/2 cup pecan nuts

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius and grease a baking tray.

Melt the dark chocolate and, in a large bowl, combine it together in a food processor with the mashed avocado, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa, coconut oil, honey and water/plant based milk.

Once everything is well mixed, add in the pecan nuts and pour the mix into the baking tray.

Bake for about 15 min and… tadaaaa! You’ll just need to let them cool down and cut them into small pieces.

Ready to enjoy?

Lots of love,

Irene & Lydia

Después de un largo tiempo hemos vuelto con una receta que nos encanta! Brownies de chocolate, aguacate y nueces pecanas. Mmmmm.

El otro día, ya que el verano se ha adelantado, inauguramos la temporada de picnic, y nosotras decidimos encargarnos del postre.

Esta vez hemos utilizado aguacate, uno de nuestros ingredientes favoritos, como algunos ya sabéis! El aguacate lo usamos como alternativa más saludable a la mantequilla o el aceite y la verdad es que hace que los brownies salgan súper suaves y nutridos.

Aquí os dejamos la receta, esperamos que os guste!

INGREDIENTES:

  • 2 aguacates maduros machacados
  • 125 gramos de harina integral
  • 1/2 cucharita de levadura
  • 1 pizca de sal
  • 3 cucharadas de aceite de coco
  • 2 cucharadas de azúcar moreno
  • 100 gramos de chocolate negro
  • 6 cucharadas de cacao en polvo desgrasado
  • 8 cucharadas de miel
  • 2 cucharadas de agua o leche de origen vegetal
  • 60 gramos de nueces pecanas

ELABORACIÓN:

Precalienta el horno a 175 grados y engrasa una bandeja.

En un recipiente, añade todos los ingredientes y mézclalos bien con un procesador de alimentos: aguacate, harina, levadura, sal, aceite de coco, azúcar moreno, chocolate negro (previamente derretido), cacao en polvo, miel y agua o leche.

Una vez que esté todo bien mezclado, añade las nueces pecanas y coloca la masa en la bandeja.

Pon unas nueces por encima para decorar y métela al horno unos 15 minutos aprox.

¡¡Brownies listos para comer!!

Esperamos que os gusten 🙂

The Healthy Rainbow Veggie Bowl

We decided to make this delicious Rainbow Bowl using almost all the organic ingredients we bought the other day, check out the recipe now and fall in love!

Hey there!

Here we are again. We are completely in love with vegan recipes. I don’t know if you have noticed lately that our instagram account is full of amazingly easy and clean eating dishes. That doesn’t mean that all the time we eat like that, we think we have to find balance in everything. Yes, most of the time we eat healthy and plant based, but we also have cheat moments when we can’t resist having a piece of chocolate, a cookie or stuff like that. And this is why we like to make our own treats. It’s just so much fun to create healthy versions of our favourite sweet addictions.

We always want to know what we put in our bodyyyy! We only have one, so we must treat it well. We try to buy organic products as much as we can. The other day we went to an Organic Veggie & Fruit Market heaven in Madrid called Rayo Verde in El Mercado de la Cebada. It was really exciting and we bought lots of things.. ALL ORGANIC.

Why we love to buy organic? There is a huge difference between having a carrot full of pesticides and a delicious and natural one that has none, taste both of them and tell us which one you prefer more. Once in a while we go there to buy veggies, we don’t usually do it because it is more expensive but, anyway  we would say, it’s health worth it (pun intended hehe).

We decided to make this delicious Rainbow Veggie Bowl using almost all the ingredients we bought , check out the recipe now and fall in love!

METHOD

  1. First of all heat the oven 200ºC . Then wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them in thick slices, in a large bowl season and add the sweet potatoes with smoked paprika, thyme, a crushed garlic, salt, pepper & a drizzle of olive oil. Mix them so all the slices get the flavour. Put over a tray with a baking paper and put it in the oven for 30 minutes while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Cook the rice noodles, follow the instructions in the packet.
  3. Cut a nectarine in pieces and grill in a non-stick fry pan.
  4. Make your Rainbow Veggie Bowl: We just love to put over our lettuce leaves, grilled nectarines, avocado, radish and walnuts to make the salad; on the side add grated carrots (we use an spiralizer), our lovely savoury baked sweet potatoes, and then add your rice noodles with a tamari and lime dressing with some parsley leaves.

Holly Molly! Spectacular, so fresh and colorful. Really good for your tummy.

Ready for summer?

Hola hola! Por fin estamos de vuelta. Esta vez tenemos un plato lleno de color y de diferentes sabores que hicimos con productos orgánicos que compramos en un puestito de verduras y frutas ecológicas llamado Rayo Verde en el Mercado de la Cebada en Madrid.

Realmente notamos la diferencia de la calidad de los productos. Es cierto que es un poco más caro, y por eso no siempre compramos de esta forma, pero de vez en cuando merece la pena 🙂

A la vuelta del mercado nos pusimos manos a la obra y éste fue el resultado: Bowl Arcoiris Vegetariano. Rápido y sencillo… Y además os va a encantar!

INGREDIENTES:

  • 2 boniatos medianos
  • Noodles de arroz
  • Hojas de lechuga
  • 1 zanahoria
  • 1 nectarina
  • 1 aguacate
  • 2 rábanos
  • Nueces
  • 1 cucharadita de pimentón
  • 1 cucharadita de tomillo
  • 1 diente de ajo
  • Aceite
  • Lima
  • Salsa tamari
  • Sal y pimienta

 

ELABORACIÓN:

  1. Pre-calienta el horno a 200ºC. Pela los boniatos y córtalos en rodajas. En un bol añadir el pimentón, el tomillo, el ajo picado y un poco de aceite. Añade el boniato y mezcla bien hasta que queden bien impregnadas. Listas para meter al horno durante 30 minutos 🙂
  2. Cocina los noodles según las instrucciones del paquete.
  3. Corta la nectarina en rodajas y pásala por la sartén vuelta y vuelta.
  4. Simplemente coloca el resto de ingredientes en el plato a tu gusto junto al boniato. Añade la salsa tamari y el limón a los noodles.

 

Listo para comer!!

Es súper fresquito para el verano y la mezcla de sabores es genial!

Esperamos que os guste 🙂
