I have a sweet tooth, a bane to my current goal to be super fit. Apart from appeasing the traditional beauty standards of muscled or well-defined men and women, I’m also doing this for myself. To satiate my vanity. I think being vain has somehow helped me become healthier, because in order to feel beautiful I have to be healthy. I had to experience being fat for like two years to realise that. Now that I’m back to my old sexy self, I have to maintain it. When you love yourself, you don’t treat your body like a toxic dump. Self-acceptance is not about accepting the lowest possible version of yourself, but rather accepting the best that you could be. We all have the potential to excel.
Anyway, I realised I could still partake those sacchariferous delights without compromising my diet. Instead of buying pre-made stuff, why not do it homemade style. There are thousand and one recipes out there at your fingertips. With Google as my best friend I managed to find this very simple apple squares recipe and tweaked it to my liking (and made it healthier in the process). hair loss treatment europe. It was so good!
3 large apples, peeled and diced
1 cup of muesli or granola (I added my homemade muesli)
1 cup blueberries
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup of sugar or 12 tsp. of stevia
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
A half teaspoon of salt
A half cup of yoghurt or melted butter
Preheat oven to 176 degrees Celsius
1. Prep the apples and blueberries. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together (except the muesli/granola). Make a well and pour the yoghurt/melted butter and the eggs. Mix by hand or a wooden spatula as the batter becomes thick or dough-like.
3. Fold in the apples, blueberries and the muesli/granola. Mix evenly.
4. Pour the batter in a pan (I used a 40×26 cm pan).
5. Bake for 40 minutes.
Let it cool before removing from the pan. The result was just delicious and so moist. The sweetness was just spot on to my palate (you can add more sugar or stevia on your next try if it’s not that sweet for you) I loved it! Vel bekomme!
