Gluten free apple cinnamon hotcakes

Apple cinnamon hotcakes Pinterest

We had a jar of stewed apple cinnamon chunks that needed eating. I had a bag of banana flour that needed experimenting with. Naturally therefore, I was left with no other choice but to create some apple cinnamon hotcakes. This was the perfect start to a delicious day off with my son - ok, I'm quickly writing out this recipe before we go out. Partly because I want to share it with you guys and partly because otherwise I'm scared I'll forget what I did. They're super easy, friendly to almost all … [Read more...]

Peruvian Chilli chocolate scorched nut pizza


It sounds crazy but it's true. And it's the easiest 1 minute whip up ever. This was born just this afternoon, as I thought about a little treat to make for the 200 of us who just finished "30 days clean" at my gym Flow Athletic - a month's program of moving our bodies in ways we enjoy with a minimum of 3 workouts a week, ditching everything processed which for some people is a first and very big step, then getting rid of all the uppers and downers - coffee, chocolate, sugar except fruit and … [Read more...]

Gluten, nut and dairy free Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These lunchbox friendly, super nutrient dense apple cinnamon muffins were born through my popular coconut cupcake recipe.

They are grain, gluten, nut and dairy free. They are very low in natural sugars. AND they still taste like a delicious treat - Important, don't you think? AND you don’t need to … [Read more...]

Whipped caramel icing

Caramel icing cupcakes

I have wanted to create a super low sugar icing that tasted good for ages. I believe it's here, if I do say so myself. This is inspired by one of Jude Blereau's recipes from her Wholefood for Children book, where the way you get the sugar out is by thickening some coconut cream first and incorporating it into the beaten butter / sugar... This is even higher in the coconut mixture and half the sugar again with a rapadura for a really caramelly taste - I figured as part spread where there will be … [Read more...]

If you're going to eat treats, it stands to good reason that you'd employ delicious tweaks to steer them towards being beneficial to your health, right? I'm talking anti inflammatory custard.

Licking every last bit … [Read more...]
