Healthy griddle cakes

These are healthy versions of the old favourite dropped scone Be-Ro recipe. I love a treat in the afternoon, or after lunch with a cup of tea and Mum used to make us the Be-Ro version, but I can’t justify the refined sugar and flour, so I have dedicated myself to creating a healthy, wholesome…

Spinach and ricotta lasagne

No faff. Made in an hour start to eat. Tasty beyond belief. Who doesn’t love a cheesy, creamy dish? 1 red onion, peeled and sliced 1 pack of spinach, washed (unless it states washed you need to wash it, I ruined a dish once by not, it was grainy and sandy all through the dish….

Nutty, seedy flapjack

A Jamie Oliver Superfood recipe and a great one at that. A bit faffy, I’m normally a one tin girl, but it makes 24 flapjacks, which is enough for the whole family for the week, so worth the extra washing up. 200g mix of unsalted nuts (brazils, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts etc) 100g mixed seeds (pumpkin,…

Healthy dodgers

These are a tweaked Deliciously Ella recipe and I cannot recommend them enough. I’ve reduced the sugar and used a diabetic jam, but still find them plenty sweet enough. I also removed the milk. They are truly delicious! 1 tbsp milled flaxseed 75g oats, put in a blender to make flour 60g ground almonds 2…

Kohlrabi, golden beetroot and apple coleslaw

In my vegetable box this week, there were a few of these odd looking vegetables, which my brain recognised as kohlrabi, but other than that I had no clue what to do with them. A quick google search revealed they could be eaten raw, so I came up with this and I’m really delighted with…

Omelette with feta and greens

This is a great way to use up any leafy greens or onion type veggies. It turns a few leftovers into a delicious, healthy, brunch, lunch or tea in minutes. This recipe serves two with salad, or one on its own. Pan fry a variety of the following:- A handful of chard or spinach, sliced…

Christmas ‘wheat free’ tea bread

This is absolutely delicious, you’d never guess it is not made with flour. It is so Christmassy and delicious warm or thinly sliced the next day with butter. So easy to make, I will be keeping this in my cupboard this winter. It keeps well for a few days in a tupperware style box. Do…

Omega 3, healthy chicken nuggets

These are so simple, I don’t know why we don’t all make our own. When I think of the bits that might be in a shop bought chicken nugget and the fact it takes no time at all to create these…it’s a no brainer. You’re welcome everyone! I buy the best chicken breast I can…

low carb, chocolate chip cookie

Oh my goodness, when you want a cookie, nothing else will do. However, when I make cookies for my kids, I am horrified by the amount of sugar that goes into them. So, I have sought out a low carb alternative. This one tops even the best of the full sugar, shop bought squidgy marvels….
