Muffins take 2 – gf, df, rsf, nut free, soy free

I was getting bored of my muffin recipe and also had to make Lord B cut back on the oats as he was reacting to them, so I tweaked it a bit. The beauty of this kind of baking is that exact measurements are not required and you can experiment with different ingredients. You’re never … Continue reading

CHOCOLATE-COVERED COCONUT BITES (with minty option) (pretty much allergen free)

Being very strictly dairy free this Easter (sweet Lady S is dairy intolerant too, surprise surprise, and Sir A is getting a lot more milk from me that he was pre-birth so I’d have to for him anyway), and having limited time in the kitchen, I had to come up with some quick and easy … Continue reading

SOURDOUGH SCONES/”HOT CROSS BUNS”

So easy you can’t go wrong. I don’t think. All you need is oat flour (whizz oats in the food processor or blender till as fine as it’ll get), water kefir, dried fruit and spices, and a dash of molasses for hot cross buns.  

Easy spiced muffins: wheat free, can be dairy free, can be gluten free, nut free, sugar free

Muffins are very handy things to have on hand, but it’s taken me a while to find a recipe that’s quick, easy, relatively crap free, and we all like. I ended up adapting one, and here it is. (It’s super forgiving, so feel free to mix it up, yo.) Ingredients: 3 eggs 1 can drained … Continue reading

Breakfast cookies (dairy free, sugar free, (gluten free)

Sir A is still having eczema issues. It’s only on the back of his knees now, which is nice, but still not ideal. I took another look at his allergy report from 2 years ago in the hopes it’d help me avoid having to do another one. Peanuts, apparently. He’d been eating a LOT of … Continue reading

Oaty snacks: dairy free, wheat free, sugar free, nut free, can be egg free

Two things inspired the creation of this recipe: first, Lord B is now staying at Montessori for 1 lunch a week, which will go up to two next term and end up 5 by the time he’s five – there is a strict no nut policy, which makes things awkward since he doesn’t do dairy … Continue reading

Gingerbread bean cake – gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free

A couple of months ago I began experimenting with using beans in cakes. The black bean chocolate cake was delicious, but I can’t tolerate heaps of cocoa, can’t afford heaps of cacao, and don’t like to feed lots of cocoa to my kids, either, so I set about figuring out a white bean spiced version. … Continue reading

Raw gingernut

I’ve been craving a gingery treat for a few weeks but hadn’t found a recipe that quite worked for me. By which I mean it looked too complicated, involved too many expensive ingredients, or had ingredients I don’t like to feed my family. I found a few today that I kinda liked the look of, … Continue reading

Nut, seed, oat, garlic, rosemary crackers

Yes, I know the rosemary is cannabalism. I’m ok with that. I’ve tried a few cracker recipes. These are the best ones I’ve ever made. Light, crispy, and DELICIOUS. I made this bread a couple of times, then as mini muffins for ease of grabbing and taking/eating. But every time Sir A ate some (he loved … Continue reading

Easter treats (dairy free, low sugar, can be grain free, raw)

It seems I can barely tolerate junk food anymore. I just don’t enjoy it much, and always feel crap afterwards. But Easter is a time of great celebration and some chocolatey treats just seemed necessary. I’ve been seeing various ideas on various blogs over the last few weeks, but most of them looked too messy … Continue reading
