Sugar Free Summer Rolls

Although technically not breakfast. Some mornings, after hitting the alarm to snooze three times. I have precisely thirty minutes to get ready and out of the house. Which means, resorting to opening a small container from the fridge and eating one of these sugar free summer rolls – with my essential morning coffee before heading off to work. Not the go-to-breakfast I recommend eating, but quick and so-incredibly-tasty.

These chocolately-moreish-rolls with their white fluffy coats, have been a staple in my fridge for the last two weeks. It’s been my go-to snack in between bao-making and Bao Town preps. I usually sit in amongst trays of baos, with flour on the floor and sticky hands. I have a quick coffee (or tea), and chew down on one of these delectable logs before returning to the kitchen.

Apart from a good old snack, these rolls have even also made an appearance at dessert time – because they are that good (and they’re in the fridge staring at me!). Round Eye has also being getting into these summer rolls, requesting that we have some every week, “for snacks” he says. Seems they’re quite the house favourite.

Lucky for you they’re guilt free, super-dooper-easy to make. And they last for a week in the fridge. Win-win.

¼ CUP RICE MALT SYRUP
¼ CUP COCOA POWDER
PINCH OF SALT

LET’S GET COOKING

STEP ONE
Blend the whole natural almonds and coconut in your food processor with the blade attachment until fairly fine. I don’t mind if mine is mostly fine with some bigger bits, adds to the texture.

STEP TWO
Add the coconut oil and butter, blend until smooth.

STEP THREE
Add the cocoa, rice malt syrup and salt and blend again until well combined.

STEP FOUR
Pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper, ensure it is level by tapping the tin on your bench to spread the mixture out. Freeze until firm.

Remove the firm mixture from the loaf tin and cut into short logs and roll in dessicated coconut.

Makes 10 to 12 rolls. Keep refrigerated and will keep for a week.

Are you team chicken or team cheese? Or do you sway between the two C’s?

I’m definitely on team chicken. And these packets of not-so-good-for-you (aka Twisties) are one of my snacking weaknesses. I’d almost forgotten about these crunchy, oddly-shaped chips if it wasn’t for the reminder from my desk buddy. She’s a Twistie lover, like me. And when she says, “feel like some chips?”. We know it’s ON! A Twistie afternoon of crunching by our desks. Leaving coloured flecks all over our keyboards and around the ‘general’ desk area. Well, that’s a ‘normal’ Twistie session.

Lately, I’ve taken Twistie-eating it to another level.

My good friends introduced me to that chip and chocolate thing. Where you take a salty potato chip and a little square of chocolate in your mouth and munch. Yes, you’re all nodding like I’m the last person to jump onto this salty n’ sweet snack craze. It’s true, I’ve never done it until recently.

But as good as chips and chocolate are together, I prefer Twisties and chocolates. They’re the perfect shape for dipping alongside a lil’ pot of melted chocolate, zapped in the microwave for a minute or so.

I call this a little Twistie fondue. Crazy but deliciously addictive. And, I apologise in advance!
