Gluten & Dairy Free Pancakes

Let’s talk PANCAKES!

Do you know how easy it is to modify a pancake recipe so it’s gluten free and dairy free?

Well let me tell you now how to make these divinely soft and spongey pancakes - you wouldn’t even know they were free from anything they are that delicious!

I used an electric whisk which is easier and quicker but a hand whisk will do the job just fine.

Gooey Chocolate Brownies

Gooey Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are a special little treat. With a different ratio of ingredients to that of a cake mix, the absolute key element of a brownie is the gooey centre. It's what makes a brownie a brownie!

With this recipe, you can also play around with whatever flavours you like, instead of pecans you can swap in chopped mixed nuts or almost any nut you are a fan of. In place of the chopped dates, you can swap in a similar fruit with a wildly different flavour - try it with dried sour cherries!


Vegan Gluten Free Blood Orange Polenta Cake

Vegan, Gluten Free Blood orange & Polenta cake

This is a wet cake or as I prefer to call it - a finger licking good cake. I also use flax seeds as they are a great replacement for eggs, so good in my opinion that a non-vegan would be hard pushed to notice the difference. Let me know how you get on and remember the rule is there are no rules so experiment and make to your own tastes.

Sugar free fruit brack

Sugar free fruit brack

A simple ‘cut and come again’ sort of cake – that is better if left for a few days. Low in fat, I think it is super delicious if spread with a swish of butter, margarine or your spread of choice (but sort of defeats the point!). Traditionally made with sugar - this is a ‘sugar-free’ version, with very little added sweetness. Because of the sweetness of the dried fruit, you could also leave out the honey/agave/fruit syrup if you like. But I like the little extra punch.

If you are avoiding processed sugar – be mindful of the fruits you use. Typically glace fruits (cherries, mixed peel) are infused with a glucose fructose mix. And some of the more tropical fruits (pineapple, cranberries etc.) are often sugar infused also.


Pancake Pittas or the cheats way to a gluten free pitta bread

Pancake Pittas or the cheats way to a gluten free pitta bread

A sort of a cheats way to make a ‘pitta-esque’ receptacle, but anything that you can weigh, make and cook within 5 minutes is not to be sniffed at. A genius lunch option.
