Hi! My name is Nicole, I am a 27 year old (healthy) foodie and fitness nut. I am passionate about fueling my body with real food and love to create recipes. My mission is to prove that healthy food does not have to mean boring food. I would never eat something that I did not enjoy and I think it is very important that we love the food we eat. When we fuel ourselves properly and effectively our bodies are able to work in tremendous ways. Working out and living a healthy lifestyle is so important to me.
Most of my recipes are grain free and dairy free simply because my body has a hard time digesting these foods. Using coconut flour allows this mug cake to have a very similar texture to that of traditional cake. I make my own nut milk at home using just nuts and water and so that is what I used here. I choose applesauce rather than oils because I prefer a more natural and less processed ingredient. It really does work so well as an oil replacer! My sweetener of choice for each of my recipes are either honey, maple syrup or dates. This allows desserts to actually taste like desserts but without all of that processed sugar!
