Breakfast muffins

I am always trying to create yummy and healthy breakfasts or snacks, particularly in the form that can be reached for with no effort, and can keep well in the freezer for emergencies. These fit the bill! They are even yummy enough to pass as a dessert! Ingredients (makes 12 muffins): 3 chia eggs (3 […] Read more…

Date-free bliss balls

Bliss balls are the perfect bite-sized snack that can be a powerhouse of nutrition and is a great back up to have around for when hunger strikes! So many recipes out there contain dates, which people with fructose malabsorption avoid. I was determined to make a recipe without dates, and it was a surprising success!! […] Read more…

Fruit tart

Fruit flan tart was my favourite sweet growing up (that and danishes!), so I had to come up with a way to recreate this treat as close as possible with my food restrictions. This is what I have developed, and it is pretty yummy! Not exactly something you’d buy from a French Patisserie, but close […] Read more…

Chunkalicious cookies

I have named these cookies Chunkalicious because that is indeed what they are! I came up with this creation today when looking for a sweet treat to make for friends who I am catching up with on the weekend.

Pizza
