MORE FLAVOUR. MORE NUTRITIONAL BANG
Including Super Foods in your baking provides more nutrients and flavour than your traditional dishes!
A HEALTHY SUGAR REPLACEMENT
You can use sweet products like Lucuma in replacement of sugar
. Use a ratio of 2:1; that is for every teaspoon of brown sugar used in your recipes, use two teaspoons of Lucuma
. Much lower on the glycemic index than sugar, Lucuma is a far healthier option
for your delicious sweet creations.
PIMP MY FLOUR
Maca and Mesquite can both be used in baking
. Substitute 1/4 of Maca in recipes that call for flour. That is, if a recipe asks for 1 cup of flour, use 3/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup Maca. Mesquite can also be used in baking. A general rule of thumb is to use one part of Mesquite powder to two to three parts of white flour. Remember, mesquite has a sweet, nutty flavour; so you may want to reduce the amount of sugar/sweetener to your recipes when using it as a substitute.
USE REAL CHOCOLATE
Substitute regular heat-treated (and nutrient-less) cocoa powder or cooking chocolate for Cacao powder
and Cacao Nibs
. Cacao powder can be used as a ratio of 1:1 when substituting for cocoa powder but remember it is pure, raw powdered chocolate
, so you may need to add some sugar or a natural sweetener. Try Cacao Nibs instead of chocolate chips and your cookies will love you. Nibs are less sweet and a dark-chocolate lover's dream with all the good fatty oils and mood-boosting nutrients
that's lost once you heat-treat and add sugar to regular chocolate.
