Your gut is by far one of the biggest indicators of health in your body. Most of the bacteria, viruses and fungi in our body are found in our gut and are responsible for managing our immune system, weight, and overall heart health.
Restoring your gastrointestinal health can increase your mood, memory and more. It's often referred to as your body's second brain.
Once I realized how important gut health is and paired it with my passion for food (specifically desserts), I started dedicating myself to finding healthy, gut-friendly recipes. I hope you find something here you can try (and love!). Be sure to let me know how the recipes turn out for you. Happy eating!

20-25% of the world's population suffers from iron deficiency. Women are much more prone than to have lower levels of iron, especially pregnant women. Many women also struggle to get enough protein in their diets. One batch of these cookies contains, 12% of your daily iron intake, 2.4g of protein and 12g of dietary fiber. Plus, they're GOOD!
These cookies have become a staple when I want a dessert that's a little bit more filling but is still healthy. It's gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free and the total prep time is under 10 minutes. I've made a batch of these in between getting ready for a party and they were ready before I was!
Here's what you need:
3 tbsp Tiger Nut Flour (I use Organic Gemini)
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the above ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Spoon out teaspoon size balls into a baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 1 hour before serving. Serve and enjoy!
