Lunch on-the-go: Chickpea Burgers

Preparing your lunch in advance is an easy way to stay on track with your healthy diet whilst saving a huge amount of money over time that would be spent on shop-bought sandwiches and chemical-filled takeaways. These chickpea burgers are packed full of protein, high in fibre and most importantly lip-smackingly delicious! This makes 4 burgers and you can freeze any leftovers to eat at a later date. Scroll down for the recipe!



Ingredients:
1 can of chickpeas
4 tbsp porridge oats
2 spring onions, chopped
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
Pinch of salt

Method:
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until fully combined.
2. Roll into 4 patties.
3. Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a pan and fry on a low heat for 5 minutes on each side.
4. Serve on a bed of lentils/quinoa/rice with a drizzle of tahini and a dollop of hummus (click here for my homemade hummus recipe!), or place in an airtight container in the fridge for tomorrow's packed lunch!

Nutella Porridge AKA Heaven

Happy Friday! 

I've been a little quiet on here recently as I've moved to Paris for 6 months! Now that I'm all settled, I'm going to make it up to you by sharing the recipe for this Nutella Porridge - make it this weekend and thank me later!

The combination of FOUR different sources of chocolate adds so much depth to this breakfast, plus the pinch of sea salt really brings out the various chocolate flavours and will make your tastebuds dance! Scroll down to get your hands on this magical recipe.


























Ingredients:
1/2 cup oats, soaked in 1 cup hot water for at least 20 mins.
1 tbsp cacao powder (I use Creative Nature Superfoods - use my code "CPB10" for discount)
1/2 tbsp carob powder
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1-2 squares dark chocolate grated/very finely chopped
1 cup hazelnut milk
2/3 banana, mashed (use rest for topping)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp date syrup
Small pinch of sea salt

Method:
1. Mix all ingredients except the cacao powder in a pan and bring to the boil.
2. Reduce to gentle simmer for 2 mins. 
3. Remove from the heat and stir in the cacao (this preserves it's antioxidants and minerals so they are not overheated).
4. Transfer to a bowl, cover with toppings and dig in!
