I love sundays. We always have a family outing in the mornings; today was spent at the beach. While the toddlers slept this afternoon, I got to cooking. It was a mega cook up for next week's lunches. I made: 1. crispy baked chick peas. They marinated for 2 days in braggs liquid seasoning, pure … Continue reading Sunday Funday
I'll keep this brief as I know you just want the recipe! A few things to remember. * it is plant based so there is no added oil, no dairy, no refined sugar and no refined flours * it won't taste exactly like the one filled with the above ingredients; it's better! The recipe makes … Continue reading Peanut butter caramel slice
I have so many lemons, I thought it would be nice to use them in a bliss ball. I've tried a lemon cheesecake version from a packet and I didn't really like it. I like a very lemony flavour so I used the zest as well as the juice. I used sunflower seeds as they … Continue reading Lemon bliss balls
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 … Continue reading Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes

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. … Continue reading Banana & dark chocolate 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. … Continue reading Banana & blueberry muffins
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 … Continue reading Rice flour apple and banana pikelets
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 … Continue reading Apple & buckwheat muffins
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 … Continue reading Buckwheat, oat and date cookies
try not to eat them all!
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. … Continue reading Heavenly chocolate orange muffins
