Shortie but Goodie: Hempseed Chocolate Bites

Apparently, hempseed* is super nutritious, high in protein and healthy fats and works well when sprinkled over smoothie bowls. At least that’s what my best friend since kindergarden served me for breakfast when I stayed with her (it was super healthy and super delicious). Which I don’t eat very often these days, because it is too cold and I want something hot.

So, I bought some hemseed and the stuff has been sitting on my shelf for a while and apart from occasionally putting it in my Müsli I haven’t eaten any of it.

What to do? Add chocolate.

Shortie but Goodie: Coconut Snowballs

For whatever reason I wanted to try a no-bake recipe this season and ended up using this one I found at The Kitchn (because it looked pretty and I like coconut): http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-coconut-snowballs-recipes-from-the-kitchn-181467

When I made the dough, I was a bit underwhelmed, because the coconut taste didn’t come through at all. My taste-tester and baker’s little helper said the same, so we had to do something about that.
Of course we were doing this on a Sunday, when all the shops in Germany are closed, so I had to make do with what I had and amped it up with some almond, sugar and Amaretto.
