Recipe #1. The Caprese Avocado Toast

Transforming avocados into avocado toast is a favorite way of using the fruit. But unlike most people think, you don’t necessarily have to mash them all up with lemon juice and salt, or so we’ll show you today, by taking regular avocado toast to the next level. Try this unique Caprese twist you definitely don’t want to miss!

You’ll Need:

  • Avocado
  • Lemon juice
  • Kosher salt
  • Grounded black pepper
  • Toasted sourdough slices
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze for drizzling

Procedure: Begin by taking a large bowl, mash in the avocado and lemon juice using a fork, and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Now spread this mashed avocado mix onto your slice of toast and top it all off with sliced cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls. Lastly, sprinkle some flaky sea salt over your toast, garnish with basil and a drizzle of balsamic glaze, and you’re all done to serve!

Recipe #2. The Heavenly Peanut Butter Protein Balls

When you’re in that phase of the day where you need a little energy boost, yet you don’t wanna hurt your healthy eating habits, these heavenly peanut butter tidbits will give you new tasty outlook on life.

You’ll Need:

  • Oats
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Mini chocolate chips 
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Kosher salt
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Honey
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk

Procedure: Choose a large baking tray and line it with parchment paper, and set it aside. Next use a large bowl to mix together the oats, coconut, chocolate chips, chia, flax, cinnamon, and salt. Add in the peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of milk. Keep in mind your mixture should not be absolutely smooth; the best texture would be slightly crumbly. Use wet hands to roll the mixture into small balls and place them onto the baking tray. Finally, refrigerate your peanut butter balls until chilled and devour!

Recipe #3. The Sweet ‘N Salty Chocolate Bark

When the stomach growls at 3a.m, this chocolate bark is the perfect snack. The added dried cherries, pistachios, pretzels, and coconut flakes, make it just as healthy as satisfying!

You’ll Need:

  • Melted dark chocolate chips
  • Salted pretzels
  • Dried cherries
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Unsalted pistachios
  • Flaky sea salt

Procedure: Using a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spread a third of your melted chocolate chips evenly onto it. Then proceed to add in half the crushed pretzels and pistachios, cherries, and coconut flakes. Now pour and evenly spread the remaining melted chocolate. Sprinkle it with the remaining pretzels, cherries, coconut, pistachios. Lastly, garnish it with the flaky sea salt. You’ll then probably want to let the bark cool until it sets, and break it into pieces. Enjoy!
