Introduction to General Practice

24 Feb

Last Monday I met the General Practice Clinic that I’ll be spend half of this year – and it’s great! The consultants are really enthusiastic and eager for me to become a part of the team. They’re really motivating and willing to help me :). I’m so excited for this year – I think it will be an amazing experience!! But unfortunately we’re going to be bombarded with assessments… so that’s something I won’t be looking forward to! Oh and I was concerned about finding a gym in the small town where I’m placed but turns out I have access to the hospital gym – $3 a week and it has plenty of weight and cardio equipment. Yay!! I can’t wait to get into the swing of things.

Bittersweet Chocolate Quinoa Cupcakes from dessertswithbenefits.com – these have an amazing texture; so soft! It took me a little while to love the taste because they weren’t as sweet as I’d hoped, but they’re still really yummy! Next time I think I’ll add more sweetener.

Serves 12

For the cupcakes:

1 cup quinoa flour

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup + 1 tbsp fat free Greek yoghurt

1/2 tsp instant coffee 1 tsp vanilla extract

1 serve Stevia

1+1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

For the frosting:

2 tbsp coconut oil

1/3 cup light coconut milk

6 serves Stevia

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

2 scoops chocolate whey protein

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line/spray a cupcake tin

In a small bowl, whisk together the quinoa flour, brown rice flour, cocoa powder, flax, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and Stevia

In a large bowl, whisk together the yoghurt, coffee, vanilla extract, then whisk in the milk

Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet

Whisk batter for ~20 seconds, or until batter is fluffy and even

Scoop the batter into the cupcake tins and bake for ~20 minutes, or until surface springs back when tapped

Take the cupcakes out of the pan immediately after removing from the oven, let cool on a wire cooling rack

In a medium-szed bowl, add the coconut oil and coconut milk, and (if coconut oil is solid) microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until the coconut oil has melted

Stir in the Stevia, then the cocoa powder, then the protein powder

Frost the cooled cupcakes and serve!! I found that I needed to put the frosted cupcakes in the fridge before serving to help the frosting set

These aren’t very sweet, so feel free to up the Stevia in the cupcakes!
