Apple Chips, dusted with cinnamon are the perfect afternoon fibre-filled snack. They take minutes to make in the microwave and the only kitchen utensil you really need is a knife! This recipe comes from the marvellous DietHood and it’s simply perfection…
A Chocolate Mousse made with avocado and spiked with protein-packed chai seeds, it sounds amazing and – more importantly – it tastes amazing. And this is so healthy you could eat it for breakfast… TheIronYou deserves some kind of award for this one!
Carrot Bran Muffins, a sure way to lower your cholesterol! I wanted to try these because I really love this blogger’s Carrot Cookies… unfortunately these muffins failed the taste test. They didn’t have much flavour and they certainly weren’t sweet enough.
However, I have a plan to make this recipe work for me: I’m going to change the butter to apple sauce, double the cinnamon content AND add dried currents. I think that might make these almost irresistible!

I had no idea you could make the apple crisps in the microwave! Beats dehydrating them for hours instead! I’m so trying this recipe!
I hope you’ll like them as much as I do. 🙂 I’ve never made Apple Crisps another way, so I’m not sure how the two recipes will compare…
The Chocolate mouse one sounds interesting.
It’s so easy too – all you need is a blender. 😀
The apple chips look (and sound) delicious. I’ve seen avocado in mousse’s a few times, haven’t tried it yet though, so not sure how I feel about that one, haha. But still, looks just as delicious. 🙂
The avocado worked really well in this one. I think you’d like it!
I really need to find tasty things to reduce my high cholesterol level. Do you have anything to suggest?
Anything with oats or oat bran in it should do the trick; so a nice bowl of porridge for breakfast should help and you can substitute 1/2 flour for oat bran in most recipes! I really love to bake these carrot and oat cookies… http://amyshealthybaking.com/blog/2014/10/10/carrot-cake-oatmeal-cookies/
If you don’t have any cardiovascular issues, a handful of nuts (according to the Mayo Clinic) is also beneficial – you could sprinkle them on top of your morning porridge! If you do have heart problems, like my dad, a low-fat vegan diet is supposed to help. He loves this cookbook: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Prevent-Reverse-Heart-Disease-Cookbook/dp/1583335587/
Thank you so much for that detailed reply. I am trying to cut down my fat intake levels. Oats can really help. I really like your recipe a lot. Might try it out!
Once again thanks for putting so much time in that reply!
No problem honey! Low fat Greek yoghurt or apple sauce usually work well – replacing butter – in most recipes.
Thanks for the healthy suggestions! They all sound delicious, even the carrot bran muffins, with your changes. I’m always looking for healthy, but tasty foods. Wonderful post, Annette! 🙂
