This evening I have a sugar-free walnut loaf recipe for you AND a new study tip that I had discovered while I was waiting for my loaf to bake! Let us begin with the study tip because we all know once food comes into the subject our mind will never focus on anything else 😛
This week, I have been preparing for an exam that I have coming up and I was thinking to myself “if only I could make studying more artistic and have a way to see all the infoormation at once…” So, off to the dollar store I went. Snagged some big construction paper & colourful markers and started making artsy posters of the information I had to cram in my noggin. It was definitely much more fun to do and the little pictures I drew helped tremendously!
Long story short:
get construction paper –> get markers –> get your artsy side out & start making knowledgable art!
Be sure to draw mini pictures. Pictures help so much with memorization. I couldn’t believe how much it helped me. I’ve never been one to study and just read. If I get the chance to throw in a crafty way of doing something… I will!
Sugar-free walnut loaf:
-2 tbsp psyllium husks or ground flax seed
-1 tsp apple cider vinegar
-2 tbsp nut/seed butter (I used tahini)
-1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
-1/3 cup teff flour
-1/2 cup quinoa flour
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-dash of sea salt
-1-2 tbsp stevia (To desired taste. I have a huge sweet tooth so I threw a bunch in. hehe.)
-1 tbsp cinnamon
-1/3 cup almonds
1.) preheat oven to 350F
2.) mix together psyllium husks (or flax), apple cider vinegar, nut butter & almond milk so there are no clumps
3.) combine the remaining ingredients in another bowl. Note: you can either mix some walnuts in the batter or just sprinkle on top of loaf prior to baking
4.) combine wet ingredients with the dry and mix together
5.) bake for 16-18 minutes and enjoy 🙂
