Delicious ways to add fibre to your diet



 

Despite its known health benefits, most Canadians only get half the recommended daily fibre intake. Luckily, adding essential fibre to your daily routine is as easy as blending, filling or coating your favourite foods with All-Bran. Incorporating just a half-cup of All-Bran Original or one-third a cup of All-Bran Buds delivers a significant fibre boost — nearly half of the recommended daily intake.

These fibre-rich recipes are easy to make, healthy and delicious!

No-Bake Gingerbread Cheesecake with Hasselbeck Apples and All-Bran* Crust

by Vancouver Blogger Erin Ireland

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup All-Bran Original*
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Filling:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup soaked cashews (soaked in water then drained)
  • ½ cup chickpeas
  • 1/5 of a cup molasses
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup honey (or less if you prefer less sweet)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  •  ¼ tsp cloves
  • ¼ tsp + a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Topping:

  • 1 apple
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

DIRECTIONS:

For the crust:

In a food processor, blend All-Bran* into a flour. Set aside in a small bowl.

Now process your dates (if too hard place them in a bowl of hot water for ten minutes) into a paste. Gradually, add your ground All-Bran* back into the food processor, followed by your coconut oil. The mixture should stick together when you pinch it between your fingers.

For the filling:

Line the base of your springform cake pan with parchment (for much easier removal later on) and then press your crust into the base of the pan – go as thick or thin as you like.

Next, in a high powered blender, add coconut milk, coconut oil, cashews, chickpeas, molasses, lemon juice, honey and spices. Blend until silky smooth.

Pour your creamy mixture into your cake pan and set in the fridge for at least 12 hours to firm up.

For the topping:

Preheat oven to 400° F. Cut apple in half vertically.

Take each half and cut slits (hasselback-potato style) starting at the outer edge – make sure to not cut through the apple completely as the base holds everything together.

In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients (minus the apple).

Place your sliced apple halves into a small greased baking tin and douse them with 2/3rds of your topping. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another ten minutes.

Remove apples from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. With a fork, pull the apple slits apart and coat with remaining topping. Bake for another ten minutes, then finish by turning on the broiler and cooking for one to two more minutes. Be sure to add apples and enjoy!
