Chocolate & Ginger Macadamia Fat Fudge Recipe for Australian Biohackers

 

There are so many things to love about cacao butter. It smells divine and it is an antioxidant rich food due to its large amount of flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants. Cacao butter has also been found beneficial for improving immunity, heart health and even lowering inflammation. It also helps to prevent skin dryness, rashes, burns, infections and is great for those times you have chapped lips or peeling skin.

 

Cacao butter is quickly becoming a staple ingredient in my kitchen pantry. At first, I thought the only way to use it was to make my own Bulletproof(ish) Chocolate. I never realised how many uses it had until I began to experiment a little more with it. I have made gorgeous Peppermint Hot Chocolates and I add it to Mocha Bulletproof Coffees which gives it an even smoother, creamier texture. But, once I began adding it to Chocolate Bulletproof Ice-cream it took it to the next level. I swear it tastes like heaven on a spoon.

 

I began to experiment with this incredible ingredient in another way. Here’s a quick and easy chocolate fudge recipe that utilises nourishing and delicious ingredients that you can enjoy for a healthy snack or dessert.

 

Makes 6 bite sized squares:

 

Ingredients

  • 1-2 Tbsp of Bulletproof Chocolate Powder
  • 70g of Bulletproof Cacao Butter, melted
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp of sweetener of choice (raw honey, pure maple syrup, stevia, xylitol etc)
  • ¼ cup Grass-fed Ghee & Raw Coconut Oil Blend or pure coconut oil
  • 1 cup macadamias
  • 1-2 Tbsp XCT or Brain Octane Oil
  • 2-3 tsp organic ginger powder or freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Powder (optional)

 

Method

  1. In a high-quality food processor or thermomix, blend the macadamia nuts with the XCT or Brain Octane oil until they become a smooth, creamy nut butter. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple times.
  2. Now add all the other ingredients (starting with 1 Tbsp of sweetener, 1 Tbsp of choc powder and 2 tsp ginger) and blitz to combine evenly.
  3. Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness, ginger and chocolate powder by adding a little more if needed.
  4. Line a small square container with baking paper.
  5. Pour the mixture into the lined container and place in the fridge or freezer to set.
  6. When ready, slice into squares and enjoy!

My 5 Biohacking Lessons From 2018 & 2019

by Guest Author October 27, 2019 8 min read 0 Comments

Hey there, I’m Alex, from Alexfergus.com. In this blog post I’m going to talk about the most important biohacks I’ve learned over the last two years.

Because this is a guest blog post, let me first tell you a little bit about myself: 

I’ve been optimizing my performance for years if not decades. My journey started a couple of years ago when I was aiming to improve my sports performance. 

I competed in rowing and bodybuilding, for instance. At first, I was focusing on mainstream dietary and exercise strategies to enhance my results.

I ate a low-fat diet, for instance, with lots of grains, because such diets were recommended by governments all around the world. I also trained myself into the ground, sometimes exercising several hours a day.

One day I just crashed, had no energy left in the tank, and decided to take matters into my own hands. I mean: I was doing everything correct, so I should have gotten great results with the “eat less, exercise more” paradigm, right?

Over the years, I learned that most of my previous belief were flat out wrong. I began training (much) less, included many new foods into my diet such as bone broth, grass-fed beef, full-fat milk, butter, organ meats, and shellfish.

I also began focusing on domains that I previously didn’t have a second thought about such as sleep quality. 

Today I wear blue-blocking glasses several hours before bedtime, tape my mouth to improve my sleep quality at night, sleep on the ultimate Samina mattress, and use red light therapy to push my sleep over the edge.

And yet, throughout the years, I’ve also learned that I never stop learning. 

In this blog post, I’ll therefore cover the cutting-edge biohacks that I’ve become acquainted with in the last few years.
