Vegan sausage rolls!

I’ve been wanting to create a great sausage roll recipe and after a few attempts, here it is. I can’t take full credit though as I did get inspiration from a lovely lady on a vegan Facebook group I’m in called ‘what kiwi vegans eat’. We love sausage rolls, who doesn’t? The crispy, crumbly pastry…

Rice flour pea & sweetcorn pikelets

We all loved the sweet version of these pikelets that I made last week, I thought I’d try a savoury one. Peas and sweetcorn are a great match because they cook really quickly from frozen and my kids love them. I froze a batch of these for the lunchboxes and they defrosted really well. I…

Rice flour apple and banana pikelets

I’ve been experimenting with different flours the last few weeks and I love rice flour. The best thing I’ve made is these pikelets. They’re surprisingly light and don’t taste of rice! Rice flour is just dry ground rice. It can be used to thicken soups and stews, as well as making crackers and pikelets. It’s…

Apple & buckwheat muffins

These muffins are so moist and yummy, perfect for babies as finger food, toddlers and kids’ lunchboxes. I whipped these up in 10 minutes using just one bowl, awesome huh?! I even took a call from my good friend Llywela in UK while I was spooning the mixture into the cases. My baby was asleep…

Buckwheat, oat and date cookies

These are a variation of my other buckwheat cookie recipe. I wanted to make a cookie with less sugar so I’ve subbed the dark chocolate for dates in this one and left out the flax egg and maple syrup. I got 9 medium sized cookies from this recipe but you could make them smaller. They…

Heavenly chocolate orange muffins

My eldest son is off to school camp in a couple of weeks and his teacher emailed me the menu. As you can imagine it was filled with meat, dairy, sugar and processed food with a side of coleslaw. He asked what ‘we’ should do about replacements, so I said I’d prepare a few things….

Surprise baby finger food!

I’ve been experimenting with finger food for my 10 month old daughter. It’s been a bit hit and miss, basically because she’s a princess and wants to be fed. No matter what I tried, she had no intention of holding food for herself! I’ve had so many fails in the kitchen and still do. I’m…

3 ingredient cookies!

My family has been missing cookies so I had a think and whipped these up today. They took me all of 15 minutes to prepare and they taste really good. They’re crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle. The dates give natural sweetness so there’s no need for any other sweetener. The boys…

Banana & blueberry breakfast slice

This is a great slice to make at the weekend for the following week’s breakfast. It’s really filling and full of delicious flavours. It’s great for when you’re in a rush in the mornings as it holds together really well and can be eaten on the go. It’s also great for lunch boxes. It’s also…

This bread is awesome!

I came across this recipe in a plant based group on Facebook. I was a bit sceptical, but after making it a few times and adjusting the seasoning to our liking we have a winner! I had to play around with the oven temperature to get the right colouring and texture. We like it chewy….

Lunch boxes

So I thought I’d share a bit about my kids Lunch boxes. This isn’t to tell you how to pack it or what to put in it, but just to give you some ideas. Even though we’ve only been plant based for just over a month, we’ve been eating whole foods for a long time…
