Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Good Things Breakfast Muffin

Yes it's still cake for breakfast but at least it's packed with good things!

2 eggs
90ml grapeseed oil3 heaped tsp apple sauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 very ripe banana mashed with a fork
4 tbsp maple syrup
100g grapeseed flour (not a lot  of places carry this yet - I got mine from Pure Nature)
100g buckwheat flour
6 tbsp soft brown sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tbsp linseed
Pinch of salt
Handful of chopped pecans
Handful of dried blueberries
Pumpkin seeds to scatter on top

Preheat the oven 180c and pop some muffin cases in a tin.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients -flours, sugar, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and linseed- in a small bowl.
  • In another small bowl mash the banana and add the apple sauce, vanilla & maple syrup.
  • In a third (yes I know - the washing up, but it's easier this way) whisk the eggs until they are fluffy then whisk in the oil.
  • Mix in the wet ingredients into the eggs.
  • Tip the dry ingredients into the wet ones and mix in.
  • Stir in the pecans and blueberries.
  • Spoon into muffin cases (not too full!) and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds.
  • Bake for 30 minutes in the top of the oven.

Especially good straight out of the oven!

  1. these were fantastic straight out of the oven last night but a little heavy today: possibly they need some flour swapping.
