    Make Spiced Poached Pear Oats

    Today’s recipe is how to make Spiced Poached Pear Oats, a gluten-free deliciously comforting breakfast, using pears, mixed spices, oats, butter and almond milk.   If you know me, you know I love to make pretty breakfasts. I believe that we eat with our eyes, so it is important to always make sure that the food that we are making for our family not only looks delicious but tastes delicious too. Oats have a rep for being bland, mushy and kind of gross, but that’s just because sometimes they are boiled too long, or they just aren’t treated with much love. My Tips for Making Oats Don’t cook your oats in…

    Spelt Crepes with Blueberry Compote

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.

    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 & Rosemary Grapefruits

    This morning’s breakfast recipe is for Grilled Honey & 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 another grapefruit recipe. Winter is for Citrus If you did not know, I…

    Easy Chai-Flavoured Spelt Waffles

    These easy Chai-Flavoured 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 Chai Waffles, I made my own chai spice mix consisting of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. You…

You only need a handful of ingredients and a bowl and I have adapted it for you incase you don’t have a blender.     I generally make chia pudding with almond milk, but I think coconut and mango go very well together in this recipe. In fact, the combination of flavours and the texture of the chia pudding remind me of a Mango, Coconut Ice Cream…

    Pear, Cinnamon & Maple Overnight Oats

    It is the last Monday of January and while everyone waits in anticipation for payday, I have a budget friendly breakfast idea that is easy on the pocket and healthy too – Pear Cinnamon and Maple Overnight Oats. Have you ever tried Overnight Oats before?

They are foolproof to make and are a great time saver – make them the night before and grab them to go as you head out. The Pear, Cinnamon and Maple Overnight Oats These Overnight Oats…
