    Spelt Crepes with Blueberry Compote

    Make these Spelt Crepes with Blueberry Compote using eggs, spelt flour and almond milk, served with a sweet and slightly tangy blueberry compote topping.  Today’s recipe is triple-tested and is a convenient one-bowl mixture of batter, that you can make in under 3 minutes. What is Spelt Flour? Spelt flour comes from an ancient strain of wheat. It’s high in protein and has a nutty, flavour that’s sweeter and lighter than that of whole wheat. Spelt is rich in vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, manganese, zinc, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins. It is high in protein and lower in calories than wheat flour and also easier…

    How to Make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops

    Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy cereal for the week? Today I show you how to make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops, using puffed rice, cocoa and a little bit of sweetness.  When my siblings and I were little, we would very rarely be allowed to eat sugary cereals. I even remember feeling guilt at nursery school because my teacher allowed me to make a Fruit Loop necklace and gasp – EAT IT TOO! When we were given sugary cereals like Strawberry Pops, Cocoa Pops and Fruit Loops, my parents would buy those small little boxes for us to ensure we didn’t overindulge. My sister and I would hoard…

    Grilled Honey and Rosemary Grapefruits

    This morning’s breakfast recipe is for Grilled Honey and Rosemary Grapefruits, topped with a sprinkling of granola. You might be wondering why I would choose to grill grapefruits, but if you are a grapefruit lover, bear with me. 😁 Grapefruit, when grilled with something sweet, like honey, caramelizes and complements the fruits bittersweet flavour. By adding a few sprigs of rosemary, which has a very ‘woodsy’ scent, the grapefruit also gets a delicious toasty flavour. We currently have quite a bit of grapefruit at home, (due to overlapping shopping excursions) which is why I decided to create Grilled Honey & Rosemary Grapefruits. Winter is for Citrus If you did not…

    Super Easy Chai Spelt Waffles

    These Easy Chai Spelt Waffles are so quick and easy to make, you will never want to buy pre-bought waffles or use a waffle mix again. As I wrote in my last blog post, Spelt flour is an ancient grain that is easier to digest than regular white or whole-wheat flour. Spelt flour contains more protein and vitamin B2 than whole-wheat flour and gives the waffles a yummy nutty flavour. I decided to make the waffles have a spiced chai flavour, after enjoying the previous Chai Spiced Rooibos I had created. Chai Spices For these Easy Chai Spelt Waffles, I made my own chai spice mix consisting of cinnamon, allspice and…

    Raspberry Powder Chia Pudding

    Pretty in Pink right? This healthy recipe is for a gorgeously bright Raspberry Powder Chia Pudding. I used both raspberry powder and fresh raspberries to create this sweet, yet tart Chia Pudding. Eat for breakfast or as a snack. I have mentioned quite a few times that Chia Pudding is one of my favourite gluten-free snacks and breakfasts, for a few reasons. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4g of protein and they are also a good source of soluble fibre – which is very soothing to the gut. Chia Seeds also contain iron and Omega 3’s and have a neutral taste, taking on any flavour you add to…
