No Refined Sugar Cashew and Cacao Energy Balls

    I’ve based this recipe on a paleo bar that I picked up at a supermarket checkout a few weeks back. The price tag alone made me decide to make my own version and these are the result. They should keep for a good week or so in the fridge but I bet they…


Low Sugar Coconut Granola

    This recipe is based on one I found online but I’ve altered the recipe slightly and put my own choice of fruit and nuts into it. I prefer not to cook the dried fruit as I find it goes too tough and chewy, so I add it after the granola has baked. Ingredients:…


Sugar Free Digestive Biscuits

  I’m so unbelievably excited to be eating an Actual Biscuit after a month of sugar-free eating (so excited that I may have accidentally eaten three…) that I had to share this recipe with you immediately. These contain maple syrup so theyre not entirely sugar free but they don’t have any refined sugar in them,…


Fabulous Frittata

  These mini frittata are very easy to make and superb for picnics or lunch boxes. Best served at room temperature to enjoy the full flavour, these are a fabulously healthy bite too. They’re also a great waste not want not recipe as they use up a wealth of bits and bobs from the draw…


Easy panini dough

    Everyone likes a panini, right? The lovely crisp outside with the soft warm dough inside and a mouthwatering filling to boot. But have you ever thought about making your panini dough from scratch? It’s really very easy to do and the results are great. It’s a lovely rainy morning project to do with…

Prawn & Quinoa Summer Rolls

    Essentially these are uncooked spring rolls, made with rice wraps and eaten cold. The idea being that they’re like a conventional wrap for lunch but the nutritional value of the filling isn’t compromised by a whole load of carbohydrates in the floury tortilla wrap surrounding it. They can be eaten hot by steaming…


Sun-dried Tomato & Mozzarella Rolls

        Yesterday saw me having a bit of an experimental day in the kitchen and these delightful little rolls were the result. They’re not difficult to make, freeze well and are absolutely beautiful with an antipasti platter or with a ploughman’s lunch. They’d also be gorgeous served warm with a nice big…


Aubergine Pizza

Ingredients (serves 2): 1 aubergine cut into 1/2 cm slices olive oil 3 small tomatoes, sliced green pesto 1 mozzarella cheese, sliced fresh basil leaves, torn black pepper Parmesan cheese   Method:…


Wholemeal Cheese Scones

                        I love fruit scones, but have never considered making cheese scones, although I’ve eaten plenty – my Auntie Jacqui makes some particularly delicious one .Anyway, I was rooting around for something to have with my Estelle’s Rhossili Relish the other day, and decided on cheese…


Chilli Cheese

This really is the ultimate cheese on toast: full of good things, it’s pretty healthy to boot. As lunches go, you really can’t go far wrong. Once again, it’s one of those ‘think of a number’ recipes I so often publish – simply add as much or as little of each ingredient as you fancy….
