Vanilla & Coconut Granola

Do you know what tastes better than a nice bowl of crunchy granola for breakfast? A nice bowl of home made crunchy granola! We love granola in our house, but many of the store bought brands are loaded with sugar (and/ or contain wheat which I can’t have), so I like to make my own. […] Read more…

Teddy Bear Breakfast Treat

Today I have a really quick, simple and fun breakfast treat to share with you. And if you choose a peanut butter that’s low in salt and doesn’t have any added sugar, then it’s pretty healthy too! All you need is some bread, afore mentioned peanut butter, a banana and some raisins. Slather a slice […] Read more…

Tropical Summer Porridge

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may know we’re porridge addicts in our family. We love ourself a nice bowl of porridge all year round and with the unusually hot weather we’ve been having in Scotland, I’ve found myself returning to a porridge recipe I devised a couple of years ago […] Read more…

Vanilla Pear Porridge

We love a good bowl of porridge for breakfast in our house. My boys are really in to pears at the moment, so I made them some porridge topped with warm pears sweetened entirely with vanilla, no extra sugar added. I have this amazing vanilla bean grinder from Dr Oetker, which I got in Germany, and I just […] Read more…

Sunday Sweet: Banana Oat Waffles (GF)

So, at the end of last year I bought a Belgian waffle iron on a whim. It was on sale at our local supermarket. We already own a German waffle iron, which makes delicate heart shaped waffles (my vanilla waffle recipe is perfect for it), but there is just something about big, chunky Belgian waffles. And […] Read more…

Cranberry & Coconut Muesli with Cocoa Nibs

I have a terrible habit of hoarding ingredients I find in shops, that look interesting and maybe I’ll make something with them one day. Of collecting recipes I want to try out and then I don’t. The upside of that is, when we ran out of muesli this morning, we had everything in our store […] Read more…

Banana & Coconut Pancakes with Blueberries

Who said the months after Christmas are dull and depressing? It’s Pancake Day tomorrow. Pancakes!! If you are still in need of a last minute, easy recipe, I can totally recommend these banana and coconut beauties. We used a 15cm diameter pan, and it made four pancakes. Perfect for a family breakfast. Just multiply the […] Read more…

Roasted Almond, Coconut & Chocolate Granola

Do you ever find yourself falling in to the rut of eating the same old thing for breakfast every morning? I mean, I LOVE porridge, but sometimes I find myself needing an alternative for getting my daily portion of oats, so when I find the time, I like to bake a big batch of granola. And […] Read more…
