Since I decided to change my lifestyle and quit sugar, flour or greasy foods, I started my journey in the search for healthy recipes, that are as yummy as the old ones but in a healthy way. I wanted to forget I'm under a self imposed "diet for life" eating delicious things that are, in fact, good for me.
One of those unforgettable yummy things for me, is the French "Pain Au Chocolat" (french name for "chocolate bread"). The first time I had this I was in Paris and I just couldn't help myself when I saw the menu of any Cafe with this indulgence on it.
Yesterday, I got this recipe that I want to share with you, and even though is not a parisian patisserie Pain au chocolat with fine technique or layered pastry, I can tell is a good replacement; a totally delicious, sugarless, flourless and healthy one, that you can prepare in four easy steps.
I received an email asking for a "suitable for coeliacs" version of this recipe. It's easy, instead of whey protein, use more almond meal. So it's going to be 1 cup of almond meal and a little bit of vanilla essence. That's it!
