Its Easter and so I was offered some products from Bioglan Superfoods. They sent me some of their Cocoa which is a super versatile baking ingredient with many added benefits.
These benefits include added antioxidants which can reduce the risk of many diseases. Bioglan Superfoods Cocoa also contains high levels of tryptophan and anandsmide which are both powerful mood enhancers and increase the feeling of happiness and decrease our levels of anxiety. Eating Cocoa also helps to increase our energy levels as the cocoa contains magnesium which is vital for optimising our use of oxygen. Cocoa is also a naturally high is fibre and therefore helps with digestion.
Bioglan Superfoods Cocoa is 100% natural, dairy free, nut free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
You can add 2-3 teaspoons of Bioglan Superfoods Cocoa to water, smoothies, cereals or any foods you enjoy to get all the goodness on a daily basic.
The good people at Bioglan Superfoods suggested I try to make some Easter nests using some of their products. I thought I would have a go and pass on the recipe.
To make 12 nests you will require:
200g of chocolate
85g of whole shredded wheat (other cereals would also work but shredded wheat looks like a nest)
1 tbsp of Bioglan Superfoods Cocoa
topping of your choice.
- Break the chocolate into small pieces and put into a bowl. Half fill a pan with water and place your bowl onto the top of the pan. Make sure the water goes not touch the bowl.
- While the chocolate is melting, crush the shredded wheat into another bowl.
- Stir in the Cocoa
- stir in the melted chocolate
- place into 12 cupcake cases.
- Leave in the fridge for a few hours.
I have decided to top mine with little Easter chickens and mini eggs however you can also use sprinkles or edible flowers if you wanted to make them in the summer.
My little nest turned out wonderfully and where enjoyed by the whole family. They tasted that much better knowing that they contained Bioglan Superfoods Cocoa which is nutritionally dense and better then had I brought some from a shop.
