Want to see what you’ll be cooking up in the June challenge?

Brrrr it’s cold outside! Time to turn up the heat with some winter warming recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

Winter can be one of the hardest times of the year to stay on track with weight loss goals and a healthy lifestyle. As the temperature drops and the days become shorter we can crave high calorie foods and lose the motivation to exercise.

This is where the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge comes in to keep you accountable and excited about healthy weight loss.

Our nutritionists have planned delicious, easy to prepare meals that the whole family will love, and that will give you that comfort food fix without the unhealthy side effects.

And today we have a sneak peek for you of four of the AMAZING recipes from the June 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

PLUS we are giving away one of the recipes below so that you can try it out for your family before the challenge kicks off (hint: it’s the one that looks like it should NOT be on a weight loss plan!).

Chocolate cravings often sky-rocket when the weather drops as we seek out comfort food to keep us warm and energised. There’s nothing wrong with feeding those chocolate cravings if you do it in a healthy way like this. Try this recipe from the June 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and see for yourself!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp cacao/cocoa powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 2 egg whites
  • salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 50g dark chocolate (70%), melted

Method

    1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Set aside 1⁄4 cup of the hazelnuts to decorate the biscotti.
    2. Mix together the remaining hazelnuts, cacao/cocoa powder and bicarbonate soda in a bowl.
    3. In a separate bowl, using electric mixers on high speed, beat together the egg whites and a tiny pinch of salt, until stiff peaks form. At this stage add the vanilla extract, then the coconut sugar whilst still beating, until sugar dissolves.
    4. Mix the egg white mixture and the hazelnut mix together, gently turning to combine, being careful not to over mix as this will take the air out of the egg whites.
    5. Now place 8 heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared oven tray, making sure there is space between each dollop.
    6. Place in the oven for approximately 30 minutes (depending on your oven). Once they are slightly golden on top, they are ready. Leave to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    7. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with remaining chopped hazelnuts to serve.
    8. One biscotti is one serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the pantry for 4-5 days.
