SUPER BERRY PUDDING

 

Breakfasts should be fun, easy and make you excited. A breakfast that sounds like a dessert definitely ticks those boxes. This one also takes so little time, is full of delicious goodness, and can be prepared the night before.

BANANA AND SALTED CHOC CHIP MUFFINS


If you’re after a quick and easy gluten free, low fat, low sugar snack then these are for you. They are so so good. Especially straight from the oven. Is there anything better than breaking open a muffin straight from the oven filled with oozing melting chocolate? I think not.

HAZELNUT AND SOUR CHERRY CUPCAKES


Sometimes you just need cupcakes, right? But sometimes you don’t want to throw all your good intentions out the window. These little gems are a great mid-ground, they are still sweet but are made with fantastic whole food ingredients and are filling enough that you can stop at one (if, like, self control is a thing you have a handle on). They remind me of those delicious hazelnut gluten free cupcakes with the white chocolate icing and nut brittle that many Melbourne cafes stock. Except these use much less sugar, and are a mixture of buckwheat flour and hazelnut which ups the nutty taste. Fraser believes the pralined nuts on top make these ones, I think it’s the light but creamy vanilla, ricotta and cream cheese icing. Either way they are a delicious indulgence.

CHOCOLATE WAFFLES

Chocolate waffles that are light like a sponge cake inside with a crispy exterior, it’s like eating a little disk of chocolate sponge. This is my third waffles post. Is that ridiculous? I just really loves waffles… and not just waffles themselves but the waffle maker too. It just makes the best toasted sandwiches… I need to experiment with more food types in the waffle maker. But back to waffles. Waffles and chocolate. Chocolate waffles. These are gluten and refined sugar free. They’re actually not that sweet at all but have a bitter chocolate flavour that works well with the slightly nutty buckwheat. As they are just a little sweet the flavours of the waffle are brilliant with fruit toppings and maple syrup.

LEMON MERINGUES




My mum is an expert baker. She was a home economics teacher in New Zealand for years and has always been in charge of the dessert section of any family occasion or dinner party. And she does the. best. meringues. ever. No argument. She often makes the good old original kind, this amazing chewy coconut flavour and many others. Mum’s meringues are light and airy with a crispy outer layer and chewy centre. Just how I like them.

SPICED HOT CHOCOLATE



Is there anything better on a cold afternoon than a cup of frothy creamy, chocolatey goodness? Yes. Yes there is. If you add chilli and cinnamon to it. This recipe is uber simple and easy. It can be made with dairy milk or almond milk, but not the dodgy almond milk that’s really watery either make your own or use a good quality rich and creamy version. The hint of chilli makes this extra warming and is just enough to leave some residual heat in your mouth. I promise this is good.

RAW LIME CHEESECAKE

These raw ‘cheesecakes’ are so easy to make and as you store them in the freezer it means you can always have something on hand when those sugar cravings set in. But something a lot lower in sugar than your typical cheesecake or frozen treat! This one is fresh and bright and makes the most of the abundance of citrus that’s around at the moment. The lime and coconut is a classic combination for a reason – it tastes fantastic. Zesty, creamy cheesecake top layer on a base of chewy coconut and almond, so simple, so good.

GLUTEN FREE COCONUT WAFFLES




You know when you have an idea for something in your head and you are completely convinced it could work and it will be delicious, and then you make it and it’s just a… mess? Yeah, that happened the first time I tried to make these. And I was going to give up and just make something from an actual recipe. Then, with help from Frase, I continued the experiment, added an extra egg, some buckwheat flour, left them in the waffle iron a little longer and voila -Gluten Free Coconut Waffles. They taste just as delicious in real life as they did in my head. crisp and golden, light and fluffy in the middle and lots of coconut flavour.

EASY CHOCOLATE BROWNIE

This is an easy and delicious recipe for a rich, bitter sweet chocolate brownie. It’s gluten free and lower in sugar than the typical brownie recipe. It’s also quick and easy to prepare and brilliant with a cup of tea. I’ve mixed coconut flour and almond meal in this recipe as I think they both add a delicious flavour and texture.

LEMON DELICIOUS PORRIDGE

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset It’s getting cold in Melbourne and the crisp mornings have me craving porridge, and I’m trying to mix up my combinations as much as possible. This is a dreamy dessert like porridge. It’s reminiscent of a lemon delicious pudding or a lemon tart with the combination of creamy vanilla scented oats, tart lemon curd (without cream or butter) and toasted almond crumb. But it makes a much more nutritious breakfast than either of those options, thanks to the oats and added nuts!
