Always the optimist!
In case you haven't had the best week so far, I have a recipe for you that will make your day...
Or, more precisely; oats, blueberries, lemon and coconut!
I seriously think lemon and blueberries (and even coconut) is one of the best combos around. Now peanut butter and chocolate, as well as peanut butter and banana also make my top list, but lemon and blueberry... not much can beat it.
Coconutt-y Lemon and Blueberry Truffles!
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 heaped tablespoons oat bran
1/4 vanilla pod scraped (or a few drops of vanilla extract)
1/4 lemon zested
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 heaped tablespoon coconut butter
2 tablespoons (more or less depending on consistency of truffles) of almond milk (or milk of choice)
Small handful fresh/ frozen blueberries
Step 1. Place the oats, oat bran, vanilla seeds/ extract, lemon zest and juice into a bowl and stir to combine:
Step 3. Add the blueberries and coconut mixture to the oats and stir with a spoon to combine:
In the meantime, you should definitely- and I mean definitely- make this chocolate 'soft serve' to go with your truffles for the ultimate dessert for breakfast experience!
1 chopped frozen banana
3 tablespoons greek yoghurt
1 tablespoon choc protein powder
1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao powder
Step 1. Place all the ingredients in a small food processor:
