Haricot Bean Houmous (Navy Bean Hummus)

I absolutely love houmous (or hummus if you’re from the USA).  It’s one of those staples at any party now, everyone’s favourite dip that comes out with the nibbles.  You can dip crisps or crudité into it, spread it on bread and it goes fantastically with lamb as part of a main meal.  It’s just so…

Raspberry Almond Cake with Coconut Cream

This weekend was my Mummy’s Birthday and I wanted to make something special for her!  She, like me, follows the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.  This means no grains, gluten or refined sugar amongst other things, so a traditional cake was definitely out of the question.  Last year I made her my Carrot Cake & Date Muffins…

Parmesan Almond Flour Crackers

Recently I made my delicious Almond Flour Crackers and having tried three different toppings I kept thinking about other flavour combinations to create.  I love cheese biscuits so Parmesan came to mind pretty quickly.  With such a strong taste, you don’t need much of it to flavour the crackers so they don’t get greasy and…

Hot Cross Bun Muffins

Easter is nearly here and nothing screams Easter more than Hot Cross Buns.  That sweet, cinnamon and fruit flavour reminds me of Easter afternoon – I love a toasted Hot Cross Bun with lashings of melted butter.  I knew I needed to make my own version so I got thinking about how I could re-create…

Full English Breakfast Muffins

If you’re anything like me there’s never enough time in the morning to cook a delicious breakfast.  Mornings are always a rush and there’s only ever time to grab something quick to eat, but breakfast is so important so I’m trying to be more organised at the weekends and cook things that I can eat…

Chocolate Banana Muffins with Pecans

I got the idea for these muffins from my Carrot Cake Muffins with Dates & Pecans.  I loved the crunch of the nuts throughout the muffin, but wanted to change-up the flavours this time.  Chocolate and banana is one of those combinations that just goes so well together.  Throw in some pecans and you’ve got…

Almond Flour Crackers (3 Ways!)

One of the things I miss most about the medical diet that I’m on is the crunch of a crisp (potato chip).  Sometimes a carrot stick really wont cut it and when everyone has the crisps and dip out it can be tough not to join in!  No longer, bring on the Guacamole!  These Almond Flour…

Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins

I love a good lemon cake, something about the tanginess combined with sweetness, and Lemon & Poppy Seed is one of my favourite combinations.  The poppy seeds add a kind of savoury nuttiness which just works so well with the lemon.  These Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins are made without any refined ingredients so they…
