Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes

These pancakes are so quick and easy to make, my 11 yr old can make his own in no time! Buckwheat flour is a great alternative if you’re gluten free or if you just want something different. The flour soaks up a lot of liquid and binds really well, so there is no need to…

Dark chocolate rice crispy slice with a twist!

I had been dreaming of rice crispy cakes for a few days before I finally made these. They’re so simple and fun to eat; perfect for a snack, party food or dessert for all ages! I made a slice rather than cakes, but you can make cakes if you like. These are an occasional treat…

Banana & dark chocolate muffins

As you probably know by now, I bake all the lunchbox items and we love muffins! These ones are pretty simple, a bit decadent and very yummy. I’ve used Whittakers 72% cocoa dark Ghana instead of chocolate chips. Only because I actually bought it to eat a few weeks ago and I forgot about it….

Banana & blueberry muffins

I tried these muffins last week and they didn’t rise properly, as I opened the oven door too early or so I thought. After another test batch, I’ve realized that almond meal doesn’t allow muffins to rise and stay risen once they’re out of the oven. So these are not your typical 3inches tall muffins….

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….

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…

A sweet treat

Since going plant based I’ve really missed my sweet treats. I’ve got such a sweet tooth and on a bad day I had no problem munching my way through a few home made brownies! I regularly make bliss balls with nuts and seeds, but I needed something which didn’t have the added fats. My boys…
