Are you a sucker for peanut butter cups? We have you covered! This super simple recipe is a healthy spin, created with only 4 ingredients, all of which possess abundant health benefits.
Coconut oil is a rich antioxidant, peanut butter provides a good source of protein and ‘healthy’ monounsaturated fat, while Ceremony powder provides you with essential minerals, supports a happy, balanced mood, increases stamina and stabilises blood glucose levels.
Unfortunately many varieties of store bought chocolates are loaded with refined sugar and hydrogenated fats, which our bodies do not recognise and therefore cannot utilise for essential processes. These ingredients are harmful to our health.
When you make your own treats you know exactly what is in there and can enjoy them guilt free – the way food should be eaten.
Soft, nutrient dense balls of chocolate goodness. Gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.
You may not like the initial idea of chickpea cookies, but please trust me when I say they do not taste like hummus. 😉 These soft, nutrient dense balls of chocolate goodness are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and perfect for a run-out-the-door breakfast, afternoon snack or healthy dessert.
Chickpeas are a great baking alternative to flour as they have minimal flavour, are gluten free and provide you with added nutritional benefits. Chickpeas are a vegetarian source of protein and contain high amounts of fibre, which helps sweep clean your digestive tract, regulate your bowel motions and help control your blood glucose levels.
Tahini is a a rich source of calcium, iron and magnesium, which are essential minerals necessary for correct functioning of all body systems. Tahini is another vegetarian source of protein and contains B vitamins, which are fundamental for energy production, cognition and stable moods to name just a few.
Ceremony powders are blended with super foods, each with an array of medicinal properties to support your health and wellbeing.
These cookies are quick and simple to make, requiring only a few ingredients.
I hope you enjoy. x

An iced chocolate recipe to cool you down over summer.
Oh baby it’s warm outside, which means it’s time to serve Ceremony on the rocks! We love an iced chocolate almost as much as a hot chocolate, so today we share how to make the perfect Summer Ceremony to cool you down and nourish you from within.
Iced Ceremony Serves 4.
Add 4tbsp of Ceremony into a jug or saucepan
Pour 1tbsp of boiling water into the jug and stir until Ceremony is well blended with no lumps
Add 3 cups of homemade nut mylk or milk to the jug and stir well
Add 2 ice cubes to 4 drinking vessels and pour mixture over ice
If you are feeling a little tropical add a scoop of coconut ice cream – yum!
Creamy nut mylk with all the nutritional benefits that Mother Nature intended.
Making your own nut mylk is incredibly easy and tastes substantially more delicious than store bought varieties. Unfortunately many store bought mylks contain less than 5% nuts and the flavour and shelf life are enhanced by supplementing sugar, preservatives and other additives.
Making your own ensures you gain all the nutritional benefits from nuts, which contain protein and an array of nutrients and vitamins that help promote satiety, enhance skin and tissue repair, support strong bones, a healthy heart and fight free radicals, encouraging optimum detoxification and longevity.
Make your own mylk in 5 simple steps.
Soak 1 cup of raw nuts (we love almonds, hazelnuts, cashews or macadamias) in 2-3 cups of filtered water overnight or for 6 hours
In the morning drain the nuts and rinse with filtered water
Add the nuts to a food processor and add 4 cups of water, blend until smooth
Strain the mixture through a nut mylk bag or muslin cloth to separate the liquid from the pulp
Pour into a milk bottle and store in the fridge for 5 – 7 days
We don’t like to waste the pulp, it is perfect for baking biscuits or muffins, drying in the oven to make almond meal, or using for compost to nourish the garden.
