Healthy Flapjacks

Even though its no more like spring out there, its no harm to try and eat a little better by replacing some treats with healthier options!
Enter these flapjacks! Usually flapjacks are one of the boldest treats out they, even though they are often marketed as a healthy options most shop ones really are not, so beware! These on the other hand are healthy, they are so easy to make, and last for ages once stored in an air tight container, perfect with a cup of tea or as an on the go snack. I absolutely love them and make them the whole time, they are my go to snack to satisfy my sweet tooth
Enjoy! xx


- 1 cup of organic dates (soaked in hot water for 30mins)
- 1/2 cup of walnuts
- 1/2 cup of macadamia nuts
Slightly blend but leave chunky
Them add:
- 2 cups of oats
- 1 cup of ground almonds
- a handful of sunflower seeds (for garnish)
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 of coconut oil (melted)
- 1/4 cup of agave or honey (I used agave)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and put in a shallow baking tray. Press it firmly and sprinkle sunflower seeds on top. Cook at 165 degrees for 25-30 minutes (until oats are golden)
Once cool allow them to set in fridge for 20mins (makes it much easier to cut into pieces)

Our slightly overwhelmed host haha!

I bagged these gorgeous glittery Topshop shoes!

                                                          Also this sparkly Penny's jumper!

Last Saturday Disassemble Dublin attended a Swapsies event at our friend Janet's house. Swapsies is a big get together of friends where we swap our pre-loved clothes, drink wine & eat home baked treats! We all have clothes hanging in our wardrobe that we no longer wear, we have loved them and worn them but it's time they found a new home. Sawpsies is a great chance for a spring clean and is also a fantastic place to grab some new clothes for ourselves without spending a cent! But more than anything, Swapsies is a great place to catch up with old friends and make new ones! Our group of friends schedules one every 3 months and I'm already looking forward to the next one xxx

Clean Pancakes for Pancake Tuesday!

It's that time of year again! Who doesn't love pancakes?! Here's at Disassemble Dublin, we try to give a new twist or healthier/cleaner versions of recipes we all love! So with that in mind I've decided to try out a clean version of pancakes for you to try, which are super easy and take no time at! This clean pancakes are wheat, gluten, and diary free with just a hint of natural sugar with the Agave Nectar syrup! If you are trying to cut out processed foods and refined sugars, but don't wanna miss out on Pancake Tuesday these babies are for you! This recipe makes one batch so double if you need to!
Any topping would be nice with these, I went for blueberries, banana and Agave!  Enjoy!
Louise xx

3 large eggs, at room temperature
¼ cup non dairy milk (I use coconut or almond)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons coconut flour
⅓ cup blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 overly ripe banana (brown spots are the best!)
¼ cup chocolate chips (or some dark chocolate chopped)(optional)
Or Handful or blueberries and squeeze of lemon juice
Butter or coconut oil for the pan

1. Mix together the wet ingredients, beating well until the eggs are beaten and slightly foamy.
2. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then incorporate them into the wet. Whisk well until combined, then let sit for 3-5 minutes to let the coconut flour soak up some of the moisture.
3. Heat a pan over medium-high heat.
4. Oil the pan with coconut oil or butter, then pour about a ¼ cup of batter per pancake. The pancakes are easier to flip if you keep them small, about 4 inches in diameter.
5. Once the pancake begins to bubble, place a couple of slices of banana.
6. Carefully flip the pancake over, and cook for another minute until the pancake has fluffed up an feels slightly firm.

Nigella's Instant Chocolate Mousse

  • If you are panicking about a last minute desert to whip up tonight then look now further than then decadent chocolate mousse! As with all of Nigella's recipes, it is truly delicious! And the best part only takes a few minutes to make. If you are cooking just for two I would half the recipe below, or do as we did and save the left overs for the following night! We decided to personalize the recipe just a little by adding a white chocolate mouse topper (my favourite!) and a sprinkling of some rose salt! Enjoy xxx
  • Ingredients : (serves a generous 4!)

  • 150 grams mini marshmallows
  • 50 grams soft butter
  • 250 grams good dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids) chopped into small pieces
  • 60 ml hot water (from a recently boiled kettle)
  • 284 ml double cream
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Rose salt (optional)
  • 4 White chocolate mice (For decoration only)

  • Method

    1. Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and water in a heavy-based saucepan.
    2. Put the saucepan on the hob, over heat, though keep it fairly gentle, to melt the contents, stirring every now and again. Remove from the heat.
    3. Meanwhile, whip the cream with the vanilla extract until thick, and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth, cohesive mixture.
    4. Pour or scrape into 4 glasses or ramekins, about 175ml / ¾ cup each in capacity, or 6 smaller (125ml / ½ cup) ones, and chill until you want to eat. The sooner the better!
