Who can not like the smell of baked chestnuts?
Chestnut, in addition to the phenomenal sweet taste, is rich in starch, vitamin C and contains much less fat than other nuts! Benefits for health from it can be great, especially in pregnancy!
Chestnut is rich in herbal fibers, it allows good functioning of the intestinal system and prevents constipation which can be the case in pregnancy. It quickly causes a sense of satiety, and because of the combination of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, this food has a great influence on the health of the bones and teeth.
Today Maya sends us an excellent recipe for a wonderful and healthy treat with chestnut puree!
Chestnut PuREe Bolls
- 1 kg of chestnut (about 1/2 kg chestnut puree)
- 2 tablespoons of agave syrup
- 4 tablespoons of coconut protein
- 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
Cook chestnuts and peel them off. Make a chestnut puree in the blender and add agave syrup, coconut protein and oil and mix well together to make the mixture. From the resulting mixture make small balls. If desired, you can add cranberries, dried grapes, pistachios and decorate with them.
If you want, you can also buy chestnut puree and save time for cooking and peeling.
