    Chocolate Coconut Pistachio Balls

    These little balls are sweet and nutty (pardon the pun) with just a hint of coconut. At only 50 calories per ball, they’re great for a snack or an addition to a bowl of warming oats or even a smoothie bowl.

The oats in this recipe aren’t essential, you could just use coconut on its own and add more to it but I find the oats give it that nice starchy texture and make them a lot more filling for such a small amount of calories. If you enjoy this recipe you…

    Lasagna Sheet Crisps

    This little recipe is a good substitute for usual crisps. You can make whatever flavors you want and have some fun with it. The original recipe is from here. I first started making these many moons ago thanks to my grandmother. It’s a pretty popular recipe for Swimming World members I believe. Personally, I like making a mix of sweet and savory ones. Both for snacking and dipping. In this recipe, I made Rosemary ones and Cinnamon ones. The rosemary is a lovely accompaniment to hummus while the Cinnamon ones are a superb dipping tool for such things as Chocolate spread and Peanut butter. If you like this recipe then you…
