    I LOVE this. Love, love, love it! I am so doing this and will be incorporating it into many parts of my life, not just yoga. I love the yellow sports bag too. I imagine there will now be a lot of yellow sports bag hanging out in the metaphysical plane of our subconscious…or wherever…loaded with our daily gunk. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh my goodness I’m seriously excited about this recipe! I’m a huge chocoholic and trying to cut down on the refined sugar but I still want enjoy that chocolatey goodness. This smoothie is like my dream of delicious naughtiness, except it’s good for you. Huge thanks for this recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Sarah x

    I was just wondering how much of the oil is used to massage the kale and how much should be reserved for the dressing as the above only says to add the remaining oil? Can’t wait to make this this weekend for a christmas lunch I am going too. Thanks so much for the inspiration xx

    Yes, this indeed is a recipe for the best salad ever! I am in love with both simple salads ( drizzled with some good, green olive oil or flax oil) as well as what I call Big Salads, which is basically a mixture of grilled veg, a poached egg, and greens.

    Love this! Mindful eating is definitely a theme for me… usually my head tries to rationalise if what I am eating is good or bad… but really listening to my body tells me everything, about whether it is a sabotaging or nourishing eating behaviour. Easier said than done, keep the inspiration coming!!! xx

    Great post Jordanna! I particularly loved this point: A โ€œhealthyโ€ diet, and having a healthy relationship with food are two very different things. That’s been a real tricky point for me over the past few years! Mindful eating is where I try to hang these days xx

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Hayley, yes I’m so glad that point resonated with you. I think it’s so important that we shift this approach to food especially with kids and teenagers. It’s time to start a mindful eating revolution. x

    Since you posted these, we have tried and tested nearly daily in our house, and safe to say they are the tastiest, quickest, yummiest and easiest snack to whip up! We’ve also mixed goji berries and coconut chips in when we’re feeling a little more adventurous, but the flavour with the salt and tahini is a winner! Loving your blog and recipes xx

    Hey Jordanna,

    I’ve been wanting to make these for ages! I finally bought buckwheat groats and activated them myself, hope that is okay. Will these freeze well? (if they last!).

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Sinead,
      They will absolutely freeze. I’d just leave them out of the freezer a few minutes before devouring. I find when they’re too cold and hard they lose a bit of the flavour.

    Hey Jordanna,

    I’ve been having the post-workout chocolate thickshake nearly everyday for breakfast, I love it!! I have it with frozen blueberries and kale.

    I’m not doing sport beforehand, just going to work so is this ‘too many calories’ or ‘too much of something’ to have just as a regular breakfast? I do have eggs other mornings, for variation.

    Sinead ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Jordanna

      Yum! No, Sinead it’s absolutely fine to have for breakfast without a workout before hand. Do you find it gets you through to lunchtime? With all those good fats in there you shouldn’t feel like a mid morning snack. If you do, I’d stick to some raw veg and hummus.
      Glad you love it!!! x

      Katie, these really are so simple and so incredibly delicious. Let me know what you think if you try them. I had to go back and forth a bit to make sure they were perfectly fudgey.

    These tasted great, but unfortunately did not resemble brownies in the slightest. We substituted malt syrup with honey and they did not harden and they were very wet. Tasted great, but sadly I think flour or something else was needed!

    1. Jordanna

      Hi Anji,

      I have made these several times and have not had an issue with them not cooking properly. Other than the substitution of rice malt syrup did you change anything else in the recipe? Did you insert a skewer in them to make sure they were cooked through before removing from the oven? Perhaps you just needed to cook them a little longer.

      Ha! How good is the raw mixture? I was the same. Be warned though Tanya, you’re going to find it hard to stop at just one once they’re out of the oven. My neighbour had 6 in one sitting… but he’s a greedy guts ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Jordanna, just stumbled on your blog through the BE&BH Facebook page.
    Porridge is definitely one of my favourite breakfast, and I love the topping inspirations that you’ve posted, they look so appetizing! x

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Billie, do you mean the dairy-free version? Use the same quantities as in the recipe but subbing in the coconut products. I haven’t tried it but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work. Good luck. Let me know how you go x

    Loce this! I agree it can’t always be unicorn farts. I have really been taking great care to be present and mindful when eating, who I am talking with and even just watching TV (though there are only so many McDonald ads you can watch or any at all). But you are exactly right if we are to far in the clouds we miss what is right in front of us and to far in the ground we miss the stars. Beautiful post and love that wonderful stranger.

    This is my first time visiting your site (I ended up here by way of the BE+BH Wednesday share thread) and I have to tell you that I love your voice– the way you write with humor and thoughtfulness! Okay, now that that’s out of the way, it’s really coincidental that I am reading this! I just wrote a post yesterday about coming to a similar epiphany– for me it was realizing that I will never “arrive” to a destination that is permanent rainbows and sunshine. I really love how you worded it though, describing moments as beige and vanilla. I think I did the same without realizing it, referring to such people/places/ moments as basic and who really (ever) wants to be basic? But as you stated, if you only focus on the rainbows you’ll miss all the wonderful little moments that really made the journey what it was. Great post.

    Even rainbows & unicorns get boring after a while! Vanilla moments give us contrast, a moment to catch our breath & regroup for the next bout of rainbow chasing

    Hi Jordanna,

    I’ve made this cake twice now, it’s delicious! My only problem is that both cakes sunk as soon as they came out of the oven (they were both in for 55 minutes). Do you have any idea why? Is it over mixing? Does it need an extra 5 mins in the oven.

    Sinead ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Sinead, it may need little longer in the oven. When you press the centre you want there to be quite a bot of resistance. Another trick is to turn the oven off and leave the cake in the oven with the door ajar to cool completely (like you would a meringue).

  26. Avatar

    Jordy!! I made this today; it’s delicious! I MacGuyvered it a bit so that i didn’t have to go shopping, so used honey instead of RMS and made my own nut butter out of almonds, almond meal and butter (I think the IQS almond butter bark recommends that sub?)… it’s doesn’t hold together as well as i imagine yours does, but it’s deliciously gooey and has definitely hit the chocolate cravings on the head. I’ve just had to put the rest in the freezer so that i stop picking at the crumbs though! Thanks for a fab recipe x

  28. Avatar

    I made them last night and they were yum! With the buckinis – do you soak them first or put in raw? I bought some desiccated coconut to roll them in for me next batch – think I used a bit too much coconut oil, so they get a bit oily when at room temperature… Thanks for the recipe!!!

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Margreet. If you’re using activated buckwheat you just need to throw them straight into the mix. Next time if you add to much coconut oil throw in some desiccated coconut or almond meal in to soak it up. Glad you enjoyed them!

    Just made this and it’s in the fridge setting now. Looks great and I love that it’s sugar-free. The tea smells gorgeous and I’m looking forward to tucking in soon. Just wondering if you had any other tea suggestions that work well with this recipe? Cheers

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Rebecca,

      Any flavour of herbal tea would work. I like chamomile blends, but any of the fruit flavoured teas would be delicious. I would avoid black teas or anything that errs on the side of bitter like green tea. The best thing to do is experiment. If it tastes good as a tea that you drink the flavour won’t alter that much when you make it in to jelly. Enjoy x

        Thanks for the recipe, I enjoyed it. I’ve been experiencing nausea so I’m struggling to drink lots of water. I find it easy though to drink a nice herbal tea and I’m loving the raspberry leaf one. Any other fruity suggestions? TIA

    I am gluten free and dairy free so I have seen other recipes use nuttelex rather than butter and rice malt syrup instead of golden syrup but in trying this the biscuits seemed to get really dark a lot quicker and a lot harder not soft and chewy? I need to try them with rice flakes too and watch them next time more

    I just made this recipe and the consistency and moisture were perfect, but it wasn’t sweet enough even for my anti-sugar taste buds. How would you recommend doubling the sweetness without adding more liquid to the recipe and extending the cooking time (I already had to leave it in the oven for 70 minutes to cook through)???

    This recipe is excellent! Thanks so much! Did you do a lot of tweaking to get it so good or is this the originally recipe you came up with the day you were cleaning out your ‘fridge?

    Thanks for sharing experience. I was a vegetarian for many years and when I started eating eggs, I got two problems: heart problem and brain fog. But just after two years I realized that the problem was the egg! Although they are from my own chicken. I had earlier understood the influence on the heart, but I did not know it was affecting the brain. I lowered the amount and heart condition improved, but it seems I need to stop eating it completely because I have brain fog.
    I started to eat eggs because I felt that I lacked proteins.

    Hi Jordanna,
    I’m a new natural lifestyle blogger and stumbled upon your blog after having my first Reiki session. In my first session I learned all about the Chakras and which ones I had an imbalance and how to unlock them. Since I am a plant-based personal chef and foodie, I then researched further how to unblock chakras through certain foods. Wa-la, I found your wonderful blog. In my post Aware-yes, I gave this post a shout out. How did you come to learn more about chakras? Would love to connect soon. I’m having issues with my domain, but am sorting it all out soon. Hope you check out my blog, your feedback and tips would be greatly appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Jordanna – I like your site and can’t wait to try this. I like that it doesn’t have highly processed flour!

    Question: do you use a fan-forced often or should I adjust to 20 degrees lower. Thanks!

    OK I’m going to give this a try, as the only good chai I’ve ever had is Australia’s Prana Chai’s Masala and their quality has gone down from CHAI to that stuff you described where it’s (even with the biggest spoonful of their sticky/wet mix – twice as much as they recommend) barely a taste of chai in the milk. Thanks!

    Hi Jordanna, I thought you were intolerant to yeast, but I can see that there is some in this recipe (broth). Did your intolerance go away over time? I just found out I was intolerant to yeast, so Iโ€™m curious! Thanks!

    1. Jordanna

      Hey Sophia,

      I was intolerant too yeast, but after abstaining from it completely for 3 months I can now eat it as long as I don’t go over the top. I don’t really eat fermented foods anymore and very little bread so a little bit of yeast in bone broth is fine. You can substitute with a short cooked stock if you struggle with slow cooked broths.

    I honestly cannot even begin to put into words how much reading this meant to me. I am currently doing my TT and struggling with some things. I have a larger chest and a curvier lower half. I am athletic but I still feel as if I don’t fit “into the mold” that was unconsciously set as a precedent so long ago. And I am learning to find grace in that because that is what the practice of yoga is all about.

    Thank you for writing this. Best of luck on your journey.
