Apple pie porridge with maple syrup

Porridge really comes into its own in Autumn, it's warming, filling, cheap and doesn't have to be boring! I created this recipe when I was working with a maple syrup brand, and it's become a real favourite- it's a great way to sneak a little bit of fruit into the kids breakfast, the flavours are great for children and adults alike, and it's also a great breakfast to make for house-guests that isn't too labour intensive but looks and tastes delicious! I have specified jumbo porridge oats ...

Healthy sugar-free homemade berry granola

About a year ago, I started experimenting with homemade granola- I couldn't find anything in the shops that was healthy enough- it's amazing how much sugar most granolas contain. I also wanted to create a granola that could be used as my Healthy Extra B for Slimming World. I discovered a brilliant way of creating a lovely, crunchy granola that had no need for sugars and syrups- by whipping up egg whites, and using them to bind your granola ingredients together, once baked you have a ...

Berry baked oats with toasted almonds

This makes such a delicious and filling breakfast- and it's good enough to feel like a weekend treat! If you are short on time in the morning it is fine to pre-cook and re-heat in the microwave, or you can have the dry ingredients pre-mixed, and the wet ingredients pre-mixed ready to just combine quickly in the morning. I just love the crunchiness of the almonds on top of these. I don't add any sweetness into the mix- I like to serve them with raspberries, fat-free yoghurt and some maple ...

Fluffy American style pancakes

One of my most popular pancake recipes is my Blueberry and cinnamon pancakes, I think because they are really lovely and fluffy, with a gorgeous texture. This is a similar recipe, but using a little vanilla just to make a lovely plain pancake, perfect for any topping that you fancy. I tend to serve them with fat-free yoghurt, strawberries, blueberries and maple syrup. I don't add any sweetness into the actual pancake mix- I tend to use the natural sweetness of the fruit that I add, ...

Passion fruit & mango overnight oats

Every time I remember to make overnight oats I mean to do it more often, as they are so delicious! It's one of those things that's more than a sum of its parts. I'm really fussy about food consistency and always have been- I hate squishy and sloppy things where you don't know whether to chew or swallow! When I first tried overnight oats I was expecting them to be way too squishy for my taste- but they aren't, in fact they have a very satisfying consistency- it's almost like a pudding. ...

Quiche lorraine with a hash brown crust

Make a quiche using a hash brown crust for a tasty & healthy alternative Quiche makes a fantastic easy lunch or dinner option of you are looking for healthy meals that you can pre-prepare. One of the fantastic things about quiche is that it’s a fabulous way to use up leftovers- most veg/cheeses will go and you can come up with some great concoctions! I adore pastry but I save it for special treats only, and I find that using a potato or sweet potato crust is a great way to ...

Triple-layer chocolate french toast

French toast makes a fantastic breakfast, as it's as much as a treat as pancakes but it's so quick and easy to make. Last week I had a sudden brainwave after being reminded about the Kingsmill wholemeal crustless toast in Tesco- how about a triple layered French toast, sandwiched together with chocolate spread and peanut butter?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=echChF_1kbs So this was the first incarnation of this meal- a layer of bread, a layer of peanut butter, a layer of bread, a ...

Blueberry vanilla & almond baked oats

This makes such a delicious and filling breakfast- and it's good enough to feel like a weekend treat! If you are short on time in the morning it is fine to pre-cook and re-heat in the microwave. I just love the crunchiness of the almonds on top of these. I don't add any sweetness into the mix- I like to serve them with raspberries, fat-free yoghurt and some maple syrup, but if you prefer it to taste sweeter you could add some sweetener or fruit syrup/maple syrup into the mix. I recently ...

Blueberry and cinnamon pancakes

I am often playing around with different 'alternative' pancake recipes, as pancakes are my girls' favourite breakfast. These ones took me 3 versions to get right, but they were absolutely delicious as a finished dish! I chose not to add any sweetness into the actual pancake mix- I love the natural sweetness of blueberries when they are warm and bursting apart, and I like to drizzle maple syrup over the top of these afterwards. If you prefer them sweeter you can always add some stevia ...

Healthy orange and oat cookies

  I've just recently discovered Grape Nuts, thanks to Nikki who blogs at Fopperholic, I hoped that they would be a replacement for my favourite Granola, but I am not keen on the taste of them just with yoghurt and fruit, however, they are fantastic baked into goodies! If you aren't sure what they are you can see them here on Amazon (click) but they are available in the cereal aisle of most supermarkets. They provide a lovely crunch to these cookies, and the bonus is that they are ...
