Nourishing Goodies for Cold Winter Days
Updated: Feb 19, 2020
Martha Loving, chef at Peckham's Y-oga Store kitchen, produced the most wonderful meals and snacks at my last yoga retreat. She generously shared two of her most popular recipes, her Cardamom-Infused Granola and her Chocolate Tart (both vegan).
Try baking a batch of her granola one afternoon and you'll actually look forward to every morning following that! For more nourishment, visit Martha at Y-oga Store to taste her daily creations, where she also teaches yoga on Saturdays.
80g maple syrup
80g coconut oil
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
Mix all ingredients together, pour onto lined baking tray + bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees, stirring mix halfway. Leave to cool.
75g almond butter
whizz almonds first alone in a food processor until they are finely chopped. Add the rest of ingredients and whizz together until all combined in a smooth mix. Press into tart tin and put in the freezer.
400g almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
20g ginger, grated (can swap for orange / sea salt etc)
2 tbsp cornflour, sieved
200g dark chocolate
Add all ingredients (apart from chocolate) into a pan and bring to boil slowly, whisking constantly to prevent lumps forming. When the mixture thickens, pour over chopped up chocolate and stir to melt the chocolate.
Pour on top of the base and leave overnight in the fridge to set, and until serving.
