Easy Healthy Hummus

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-12-24-31-pm

My friends and I love staying over at each others houses. The other day everyone came over to my house for the night, and one of our go to snacks is almost always hummus and crackers! I promise you if there’s  hummus in the fridge, it will be gone by the next day.

So everyone was seated on the floor in a circle and we were just chatting, and of course my friend asked me if I had hummus. Unfortunately I didn’t have any. But I suggested why not try to make some. It would be a fun little activity for us to do. It was fun to just have everyone in the kitchen laughing, and just having a good time

This recipe is so easy even my friend who burnt milk ( I didn’t even know that was possible)  was able to make it.

Step 2:

Whilst the mixture is in the fridge. Take the cocoa powder, and mix it with honey, and corn flower. Add little bit of water, but make sure that you don’t put too water because you still want the chocolate sauce to be thick.

Fall is just around the corner, and what better way to get into the season with a delicious cinnamon apple oatmeal bowl. Every time I think of fall I think of cinnamon!  Cinnamon scented candles, cinnamon apple crumble, and of course one of my favorite cinnamon rolls!

When I was younger I wasn’t a fan of oats cause they tasted bland and boring. Then when I got onto high school that kinda changed.  I went to boarding school and one of the few breakfast meals you could keep in your room without a fridge was instant oatmeal. That very quickly became something I turned to when I was running late for class. I think you can guess what flavor filled my drawers…yep, cinnamon apple!

Even thought I’m not in boring school anymore I still love to make this for breakfast, cause I always feel satisfied afterwards!
