A Romantic Dinner for Two – Valentine’s Day Menu

How about a special Valentine’s Day Menu that’s completely Grain-Free, Gluten-Free and Refined Sugar-Free but still incredibly tasty?  Think such a thing doesn’t exist?  Read on to find out how you can create a meal that’s delicious and healthy and super impressive… We’re spending Valentine’s Evening at home this year as we didn’t want to…

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This Cinnamon Raisin Bread recipe reminds me of Sunday afternoons in front of the fire when you’ve had a big roast lunch and you just want something small for your tea.  I got the inspiration for this recipe from my Grain-Free Bread.  It’s one of my favourite recipes and I’d been thinking about doing a sweet…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not only are these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies insanely delicious – they’re actually healthy too!  Thought you’d never hear such a thing?  Well these cookies are free from gluten, grains and refined-sugar and contain only wholesome natural ingredients, so there’s no excuse not to treat yourself to one (or a few) every now and again….

‘Healthy’ Peanut Butter Fudge

This weekend was my dad’s birthday and I wanted to make him something delicious as a special little homemade present – last time I made him some of my healthy Salted Nut Brittle but I wanted to do something different this time.  He has a very sweet tooth, but he gave up chocolate (and anything…

Apple & Cinnamon Crumble

I don’t normally make desserts as neither Dan nor I have a sweet tooth, but we had guests coming over tonight so I decided to go to the extra effort – and if I’m making a dessert, I might aswell make one that I can eat, right? I decided on apple crumble as I had…

Cinnamon & Raisin, Almond Flour Cookies

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but even I can’t resist these cookies.  You’ll never guess that they’re grain and refined sugar-free as they taste absolutely delicious – better than most other cookies in my opinion.  And they’re so easy to make – all in one mixing bowl and about 30mins from start to…

Berry & Mint Fruit Salad with a Honey Lime Dressing

Ok, so this is hardly a recipe (throw some fruit in a bowl, scatter over some mint, sprinkle over a secret dressing and it’s done) but it looked so spectacular and went down so well when I served it at a recent BBQ that I just had to include it! I started with a base…

3-Ingredient Salted Nut Brittle

After the success of my no-sugar Coconut Ice, I decided to have another go at making a different sweet that I used to love as a child – Peanut Brittle.  I knew it would be impossible to get the crunch of a peanut brittle without adding sugar but I figured that the Coconut Ice worked so well…

Coconut Ice

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, luckily for me as I don’t eat any refined sugar (I eat honey and naturally occurring sugars in fruit etc, but no sugar, agave, coconut nectar, stevia etc) but I was really craving something sweet after my dinner tonight.  I decided to make my no-bake, 5 ingredient (though they…

Forest Fruit & Blueberry ‘Cheese’Cake

Heading to a hen party tomorrow, I wanted to make something a little bit special (but still healthy – so that I could eat it).  I’m not usually a huge fan of sweet things, and would always pick cheese over a dessert, but I knew there’d be plenty of things to tempt me so I…

Carrot Cake Muffins with Dates & Pecans (SCD/Paleo)

It’s my Mummy’s birthday in a couple of days and I’m taking her to Madrid for the weekend.  We’ve usually gone to Portugal or Paris but fancied a change this year, so watch this space for the Madrid Recap!  Our birthdays are less than 2 weeks apart so we usually go away for a girl’s…
