PB + J CHIA PUDDING

A super simple make ahead breakfast that will put a smile on your face in the morning. I love peanut butter in both sweet and savoury dishes, and this slightly sweet dessert is given a nutty protein kick with a good dollop of roasted peanut butter.

VANILLA AND COCONUT CHIA PUDDING

Nutritious, pretty and yummy breakfasts like this don’t need to be time consuming. I love a breakfast that I can prepare before going to bed and then have it ready to go in the morning when time is more important to me. I want to be the kind of person that can get up really early and exercise, make a delicious breakfast and get to work in time… but I’m not! I find getting up earlier than I have to really hard and my mornings always feel really busy. I tend to eat breakfast at work, so grab and go breakfasts like this are an excellent option.

STRAWBERRY AND VANILLA GRANITA

This is a refreshing, easy and nutritious summer dessert. Or snack for that matter.  It’s dairy, gluten and sugar free and maximises that fresh strawberry flavour. That flavour is enhanced by both the freshness of lime and the lingering vanilla flavour. You could leave the vanilla out but I think it’s what takes this to the next level, from frozen snack to dessert.

STRAWBERRY AND VANILLA BEAN PORRIDGE

It’s a weird time of year in Melbourne. We’re oscillating between smoothie and cold drink weather and warm porridge weather. Sort of typical Melbourne really.

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!

Another dairy free, vegan, gluten free cheesecake miracle! This one is a little simpler, fresher and more pink than my other cheesecake slice.

BUCKWHEAT CREPES WITH STRAWBERRIES AND MINT

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
I’ve been experimenting a lot with buckwheat lately. It’s a flavoursome grain alternative (as it’s actually a seed) and I love it in all it’s forms, puffed in muesli, raw in porridge or flour in baking and… crepes! After making the stackable american style pancakes and crepes with buckwheat I’ve decided that the crepes are superior by far, thus this is the recipe I’ll share. My quinoa pancakes are still my go to for a healthier fluffy pancake!
