Salted Caramel Easter Croissants

26th March 2016By Leave a Comment

Those of you of a ‘raw vegan, fairy dusted paleo’ disposition look away now. These are for the Sunday Funday dairy and sugar monsters; myself included. There’s no beating around the bush, this is quite frankly the best assembly of shop bought ingredients and full to the brim with oozing chocolatey goodness. And to be honest, on Easter Sunday, what…

Banana pancakes with lemon icing

8th February 2016By 2 Comments

Should you be wanting pancakes of the healthier variety this Shrove Tuesday then these little beauties are for you. Similar to my zero carbohydrate blueberry and raspberry pancakes these contain a little self-raising four to give them their usual fluffy texture but still packed protein rich banana and eggs to make them lighter. Choice of topping is up to you but I’ve gone…

‘Better for you’ Benedict with “hollandaise”

27th September 2015By Leave a Comment

This is what it’s all about. Those of you who read my brunch posts will know I’m a bit of an eggs Benedict fiend.

I understand the “why bother when there’s a can”  mentality but listen up, canned baked beans contain a fair amount of salt and sugar which as we all know isn’t too great for the old body. What’s more, when they’re so easy to make and there’s an opportunity to add even more flavour and goodness, why…

Eggy blueberry and raspberry pancakes

4th July 2015By 4 Comments

Pancakes? With absolutely no carbohydrates I hear you say? Ay ay Captain … However …. I owe it to you to break it down. These pancakes are a bit different, indeed, they have absolutely no flour in them so they’re not pillowy and starchy like the ones we all know and love. They are however, solid protein and fibre so if you’re craving…
