Rock My Bowl Recipe

Posted on by

I’ve recently come across Rock My Bowl, and tried the cacao sea salt granola this week.  Which is amazing and I really don’t think the bag is going to last very long unless someone hides it from me!

Founder Rebecca, only started the company in January of this year and has kindly given us a recipe to share with you and answered a few of our guest blog post questions.  If you try the delicious smoothie bowl, please share and tag on instagram so we can see.

Where do you live and with whom?
I live in Brockley with my partner Robbie he owns more clothes and shoes than any one I have ever met before!  and our 3 year son Jude.

How was Rock My Bowl born?  Where can we find you now/over the summer?
I started Rock my bowl because when I had my son I realised that having a substantial and delicious start to the day was so important but yet many people don’t eat breakfast or just shove a piece of cold toast in they’re mouth. I began experimenting and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I never intended to make it a business but I had been making my granola ,porridge and elaborate salads for friends and family for years and everyone kept saying to me you should have a cafe/food business. After turning 40 last year I just decided to go for it … I have been amazed at the response.
Rock my bowl is at druid street market every other Saturday but also we have so much great stuff going on. A new 6 week brunch market in Hackney from 24th July. a pop up in Old street underground station for 2 weeks in September. Everything we do is usually on IG or our website.

What is the favourite bowl to eat in your house at the moment?
We eat a LOT of my porridge at home,I always have it for lunch when i’m doing events. My partner who used to eat crumpets for breakfast is the one who tends to get a pretty incredible bowl every morning (That’s usually the first image I post) For me I have a power bowl every day.. it’s basically a small bowl of fruit. yoghurt,  sometimes grains and lots of superfoods and boosters and a generous sprinkle of granola.

What/who inspires you?  Are you very health conscious?
My biggest inspirations are the chef Anna jones. Her books are my absolute favourites and the authors of the blogs www.greenkitchenstories.com and www.mynewroots.org
Incredible recipes and images and i use them both in my everyday cooking.

I’m pretty health conscious.. I have always made exercise a huge part off my life and i’m not particularly nice when i don’t work out. At the moment it’s a class at Frame or a workout from Youtube. Healthy eating tends to come hand in hand with that. That said I believe in balance.. I eat out a lot and I certainly don’t skip the desert. I have attempted to give up coffee and Gin but it’s just not any fun.  My weakness is an almond croissant from Little bread pedlar. I probably have one once a month although i think about them most days!!!!

Recipe Week – Cookie & Biscuit

Posted on by

Lots of people detox in January, make fresh starts, resolutions, or aim to shape up.  With all these good intentions that are hard to keep up when it’s cold, dark and sometimes hard to get motivated and inspired, I’m posting some recipes from lovely ladies, whose food is wholesome and always looks delicious.  It’s always good to have some new recipes that have been tried and tested, a bonus if kids love them too.

First up, with have a recipe from the clever lady behind Cookie and Biscuit Danae.  She was saving this recipe for her cookbook, but has kindly shared it ♡ Thank you lovely!

Nutty Nutty Goji Bars
raw, vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free

50g raw brazil nuts
70g raw pecans
30g raw sunflower seeds
150g medjool dates (room temperature)
1tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
60 ml of melted coconut oil (50g solid)
100g jumbo oats
30g goji berries (or can sub dried cranberries)
2 teaspoons of chia seed

nutty goji bars close up

Pulse nuts 2-3 times in food processor, but not too much or it will turn to nut butter!
Add the dates, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut oil, mix until all ingredients are incorporated and a soft “dough” forms.  Remove blade and dump mixture into a bowl.  Stir in oats, chia & goji berries.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined 8x8inch square pan, or roll into small balls. Place in fridge for about 2-3 hours, then slice and enjoy!
you can also freeze them, toss in them in a pack lunch and they will defrost by lunch time!

You can order some amazing vegan treats from the Cookie & Biscuit website and follow them on instagram to see what they’re up to @cookieandbiscuituk

I’m going to be trying these this week!!
