The Ingredients Megan of Gypsy Kitchen always has to whip up Healthy Treats

Wholefoods and no fuss is how Gypsy Kitchen makes their treats

 

Creating your own healthy sweet treats doesn’t have to be difficult, require baking or even a recipe. Just ask Megan Rodseth.

 

Megan Rodseth is a swimming coach and also runs flexibility classes, pole classes, and Kiddies gymnastics at Fight Fit; so her everyday life is incredibly active and healthy. After years of stomach troubles, despite choosing “healthy” options at the store, Megan decided to change her outlook on food.

 

Inspired by her love for sweet things, Norman “Chef” Wessels and his daughter Bayley she started Gypsy Kitchen. A plant-based at home “bakery” selling healthy sweet treats like truffles, brownies and chocolate sticks.

 

Megan likes to keep things simple, clean and healthy and maintains that, “the beauty about healthy eating and creating healthy meals and treats is you don’t need to bake and you don’t need a recipe. If you keep things simple, you’re are bound to succeed. No flops”.

Megan’s tip for creating your own healthy treats is simple “Get creative- don’t be scared to experiment. Don’t give up if something doesn’t come out as planned the first time. Keep at it.”

 

Gypsy Kitchen’s 3 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

The Ingredients Megan of Gypsy Kitchen always has to whip up Healthy Treats

Ingredients

500g dates, soaked in hot water for 5 minutes to an hour

2 cups cocoa powder

2 tablespoons Peanut butter, or any other nut butter

 

Directions

1. Throw everything into a food processor and blend until nice and smooth. I like to keep some of the water I soaked my dates in to add if the mixture gets too stiff.

2. Taste the mixture and adjust – adding more cocoa if you want a stronger chocolate taste or peanut butter for a nuttier taste. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes

3. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes

4. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa into a mixing bowl and take a spoonful of the truffle mixture, roll into a ball and then drop it into the bowl of cocoa. Move it around until it’s covered in cocoa
