Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

These muffins do not have any added sugar!  They’re just sweetened naturally with the bananas. The secret with this is using really ripe bananas.  They’re so naturally sweet at the point when they’re covered in brown spots that you really don’t need any additional sugar which make them a perfect way to start your day. …

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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