For many people their eating choices are dictated by their allergies and food sensitivities, while others choose to follow a healthier way of living.
I recently tried out the new range of NuMe “Not So Naughty” chocolate and pecan nut mix for brownies and muffins gluten-free baking pre-mixes.
The range is sugar-free, low carb, with no artificial additives and carry the Tim Noakes “Eat Better South Africa” stamp of approval.
Being a busy working mom, I rarely have the time to bake for my 2 young children, so I was delighted when I read the instructions:
What I loved is the simplicity of the preparation:
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup of Coconut oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
Simply add to the pre-mix, stir and spoon into a muffin tray or small dish.
Bake for 15 minutes and voilà! - I had a batch of super-healthy, homemade treats for my family.
Tip: Don’t leave them in the oven for too long as they will dry out.
My young daughters loved them and I was happy to be able to pack something healthy in their lunchboxes.
Both the muffins and the chocolate chunks were moist, nutty in flavour, rich, yet not too sweet.
The pre-blend consists of ground pecan nuts, sunflower flour, cocoa, sugar-free chocolate and xylitol - making it a tasty low-carb gluten-free treat that is high in protein and dietary fibre.
The brownies can be served with cream and melted dark chocolate, while the muffins can be iced and decorated or simply dribbled with dark chocolate.
The versatility of the products means they are as adaptable. Add nuts to the muffins, or transform the brownie mix into a delicious layer cake.
The NuMe brands are stocked at Dischem nationwide, as well as Food Lovers Market and specific Spar and Pick ‘n Pay outlets.
Price: From R55 - R60 a box.
