This was about as festive as it got at my place this year. With no christmas baking tradition in my family and a surgery behind me, I wasn’t able or willing to cook. So today I have thrown together a simple protein rich wanna-be “potica” (traditional slovenian cake) in a glass jar.

Ingredients for 2 (jam) jars:

YOGURT BASIS
8 spoons of greek yogurt (4 per jar)
2 spoons of chia seeds (1 per jar)

Step 1: Mix together and distribute equally between the two jars.

FOR APPLE LAYER
3 apples
1 spoon of water
1 spoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoons of ginger powder

Step 2: Cut apples into chunks and let them steam in 1 spoon of water, covered, for 10-15 minutes. When they’re soft enough, mix them in a puree with a hand mixer or in a blender. Put on the top of the yogurt layer.

POPPY SEED LAYER
2 spoons of ground poppy seeds
2 spoons of rice or hazelnut milk (cow’s milk would work, too)
4 dates, mashed with a fork in a spoon of water
1 teaspoon of vanilla protein powder
1/4 teaspoon of psyllium

Step 3: Mash the dates in a spoon of water in a date paste either with a fork or with a hand mixer. Mix all ingredients together in a wet poppy-seed layer and spread them over the apple-sauce layer.

QUARK LAYER
3 big spoons of quark
1 spoon of mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Step 4: Mix all the ingredients together and spread the quark layer over the poppy seed layer. Then cover with the rest of the apple sauce again.

You can continue making layers until you have used all the ingredients.
I topped it with a 1/3 of a homemade raw twix bar, which has been resting in my freezer for some time now (made in a similar way as my granola bars).

To je bila letos zame vsa praznična kuharija, ki sem se je lotila. Brez navajenosti na tradicionalno božično peko, ki jo vzdržuje mnogo družin ter operativnim posegom za sabo, nisem bila niti zmožna niti voljna peke ali kuhanja. Danes sem po brskanju za kuharskimi recepti, ki se  jih želim lotiti v letu 2019, naletela na recept za brezglutensko potratno potico in na hitro sestavila tale spodnji kozarček ponarejene potičke.

Sestavine za 2 (marmeladni) skodelici:

JOGURTOVA BASA
8 žlic jogurta (4 na skodelico)
2 žlici chia semen (1 na skodelico)

1. korak: Jogurt in chio zmešaj ter razdeli na dno kozarčkov, v katerih bo sladica postrežena.

ZA JABOLČNO ČEŽANO
3 jabolka
1 žlica vode
1 žlica cimeta
1/4 žličke ingverja v prahu

2. korak: Jabolka nareži na majhne koščke. Pokrite jih pusti dušiti 10-15 minut, da se zmehčajo. Nato jih z ročnim ali električnim mešalnikom zmešaj v čežano. (Lahko tudi z vilicami.) Daj na jogurtov nadev.

MAKOV NADEV
2 žlici mletega maka
2 žlici lešnikovega ali riževega mleka (lahko tudi živalskega)
4 datlji, razkoščičeni in pretlačeni v pasto
1 žlička vanilijevega proteinskega prahu
1/4 žličke indijskega trpotca (po želji)

3. korak: Datlje z žličko vode in vilicami pretlači v pasto. Nato vse sestavine zmešaj v majhni posodi ter jih položi preko jabolčnega nadeva v kozarčku.

SKUTIN NADEV
3 velike žlice skute
1 žlica mascarpone sira
1/2 žličke cimeta

4. korak: Zmešaj vse sestavine in jih položi na makov nadev. Nato ponovno prelij s preostankom jabolčne čežane.

Nadaljuj z zlaganjem nadevov, dokler ne porabiš vseh sestavin.

Jaz sem na vrh dodala še 1/3 domačega presnega twixa (podoben recept kot za granoline ploščice), ki se mi je že nekaj časa valjal v skrinji.
