    Collagen and Carob Oats

    Here’s a recipe for my Collagen and Carob Oats. Oats have a bad rep. Maybe its because they are a carb, that they are seen as the enemy? Or maybe its because you think of being forced fed lumpy porridge as a kid? Whatever the reason may be, I plan to make Oats sexy again. Oats are a whole-grain food and are rich in fibre, manganese, the B vitamins thiamin and riboflavin, vitamin E and protein. They’re also low in sodium and fat and free of sugar, cholesterol and saturated fats. So stick around for a few Oat inspired recipes from me! What is Carob? Organic Carob powder is low…

    Gluten Free Brownies with Tahini Swirls

I had two ladies request that I make this recipe on Instagram so I started experimenting and finally got it right on the 3rd try. (that seems to be a trend with me actually) So eggs are kind of a big deal when you make biscotti, they help the cookie dough to bind and they help the cookies stay together when baking.

    Best Ever Gluten Free Chocolate Drop Cookies

    This is my recipe for the Best Ever Gluten Free Chocolate Drop Cookies which are super chocolatey, fudgy in the middle, have a crispy top and are best eaten straight out of the oven. I swear, I could never get tired of chocolate, especially if it is the good quality kind that I recently purchased from The Kate Tin. Kate has her own range of baking chocolate and so I decided to buy every single variant to test. For this cookie recipe, I used her milk chocolate drops, which melt so well and create the most dreamy swirls. Best Ever Gluten Free Chocolate Drop Cookies For these cookies, you will…

    Berry Meringue Nests with Vanilla Yoghurt

    A sweet and crunchy gluten-free recipe for Berry Meringues Nests topped with spoons of Vanilla Yoghurt, a tart berry compote and fresh mint. This is the kind of dessert that you could eat for breakfast and features a new full cream yoghurt variant from Nutriday – which comes in Vanilla and Strawberry flavours. For this recipe, I decided to go with the vanilla variant.  Making and Assembling the Meringue Nests Do not be scared to make meringues, it really is a lot easier than you might think. To start, we whisk 4 egg whites and then slowly add the caster sugar bit by bit until a thick, sticky glossy-like mixture…
