Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Cakes (gluten free).

Apple and cinnamon, one of those amazing combinations. I’m such a fan. I even love it on porridge. So tonight I had a play around with making it into a healthy muffin. Now I’ve gone for the unsweetened version, add the little drizzle of honey in if you have a sweeter tooth than me (I’m a savoury girl at heart). I decided as soon as these came out of the oven that they needed a little topping on them. So I whipped up a healthier version of a classic cream cheese frosting which also boosts the protein content of this yummy morsel and makes them look lovely. These make the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea and are a good snack for little ones too 🙂

Apricot and Yoghurt Healthy Flapjack Bars

Flapjacks. There is no getting around the fact that I LOVE them. I’m not talking the treacle, syrup, butter version – that’s a bit too much for my tummy and my palate. The type I like is the not too sweet, fruity, oaty, chewy type. So I am constantly on the look out for new ways to reinvent my flapjacks. I’ve been playing around using yoghurt in a few muffin recipes, which led to my wondering what it would be like in a flapjack. It turns out that it’s pretty amazing, leading to a moist, delicious flapjack that takes no time to make and no time to eat if you aren’t careful!

 The bonus with this is there is no added fat or sugar. WIN WIN.

I have one of those toddlers who is always hungry and asks for snacks a lot. Often I set the expectation early on in the day and at lunchtime I will explain that in the afternoon the only snacks available are fruit and breadsticks with a dip for example. As my toddler takes after mummy and also loves cooking,  I am constantly on the look out for new healthy snacks that we can make together. If she cooks it she wants to eat it and I’m not a fan of filling her full of added sugar.

This weekend we had a go at adapting our usual flapjack recipe, making a yoghurt, apricot and banana version and we also came up with these cookies. Now these are definitely cookies and not biscuits. There is no crunch to them, they are soft and chewy, which makes them perfect for babies and toddlers. They have no added sugar the sweetness comes from the fruit and apple sauce and no added fat either. The oats provide a wholegrain form of carbohydrate that will  keep your little ones and you going through the afternoon.

To “adult” these up I would add some nuts and seeds for added crunch and serve with a cuppa. Have a play and let me know what you come up with.

Protein Packed Peanut Butter Trail Mix Cookies

Warning…. you may find it hard to stop at just one cookie!

I’ve slightly fallen back in love with peanut butter recently. It’s more nutritious than butter due to it’s protein content and gives a great taste to baking. So today inspired by my recent oaty ball success I decided to venture a little further into the peanut realm and try out some cookies.

Now I’ve seen plenty of peanut butter cookies on Pinterest, but they all seem to be full of chocolate, marshmallows or sweets. I wanted to create a healthier cookie that provides a tasty but nutritious snack. These were very easy to make and can be made ahead, then simply stored in the fridge ready to bake later. 

Attachment-1

The toddler’s response to these at snack time – “Mummy what are these” “Peanut butter cookies, why?” “They are yummy scrummy Mummy”. I must say I agree with her.

Banana yoghurt muffins, perfect for healthy snacking

Bananas and Baking, one of my favourite combinations. We often have a couple of bananas hanging around earmarked for mummy to bake with as no-one like over-ripe bananas in our house. This weekend I decided to move away from our beloved flapjacks and try out some muffins. I’d seen a recipe somewhere that used yoghurt and banana with hardly any sugar or fat and that had got stuck in my mind, Of course I have no idea what the recipe was or where it was and it was a wheat containing recipe…. so this is where my baking brain took me.

The result. A lovely moist, springy muffin that has little hidden gems of banana hidden inside. These are going to be come a regular in our house and lend themselves to all kinds of variations. Chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries mmmmm.

Dietitian UK: Healthy low fat, low sugar banana muffins

These muffins have 5g sugar which comes from the yoghurt and banana. The oats are wholegrain and the bananas give them a great fruit boost. Great for enjoying mid afternoon when you fancy cake or as a snack for the kids. Compare this to other toddler snacks you can buy and these are a much healthier option. These are also perfect for making with kids, I know my toddler will be having a go.

Mango and Apricot Raw Nut bars.

I’ve been meaning to play around with making these for absolutely ages. It’s been on of those things on my very long list of things to make. However babies and toddlers seem to take over slightly 😉 Today has been a fairly relaxed day and suddenly in the middle of te toddler finishing her tea and the baby getting ready for a bath I suddenly found that urge to make these. As I fired up the food processor my husband literally came out with “What on earth are you doing” – translated as “Its time to get these kids into bed so we can sit down with a glass of something yummy”. Fortunately these babies literally took minutes to make so I can enjoy one with my glass of chilled white wine. YES.

This is a recipe I’ll be playing around with over the coming weeks for sure. Let me know if you come up with any good combinations.

Healthy Cranberry and Orange Flapjack for a Flapjack-a-holic.

Christmas has come and gone but I’ve still got cranberries to use up. I’ll be honest, I’m a flapjack-a-holic, so even after making the cranberry muffins I had to play around and make up some flapjacks too. Life with out flapjack is not worth thinking about. However my flapjack has to be a healthier version, gone is the treacle, syrup and lashings of butter…. instead I’ve increased the fruit, got rid of the sugar and used honey and reduced the butter. The result is a tangy, moreish morsel that goes perfectly with a decent cuppa.

Healthy, Low Fat, Low sugar Cranberry Muffins (GF/WF)

You know when you look in the fridge and see something staring at you saying “Use me up quick”? Yes my fridge talks to me 😉 Well I’ve had a punnet of cranberries staring at me for a little while and suddenly I knew I had to use them or lose them. Hubby often does the fruit and veg shopping which is fabulous but means I am never too sure what I will get. Last week he picked up fresh cranberries. Very seasonal but seeing as we didn’t need cranberry sauce what  was I going to do with them?

Cake was the answer. Sometimes in life cake is needed. These beauties worked so well they surprised me, I’m now going to have to adapt the recipe for other fruit so I can make them again.

Low Fat, Healthy Shredded Wheat Cake

Dietitian UK: Shredded Wheat Cake

When I was younger my mum found a Weetabix cake recipe and it was one of those recipes I really remember, partially because it was a little unusual and partially because I loved it. My mum-in-law also used to make a great All-bran loaf so my husband tells me. So when faced with a large box of shredded wheat that were bought by accident I decided to try them out in a cake.

Now as this contains wheat I can’t eat it but I have tried this out on my taste testers with good results. In fact half the cake went in one day!

Apple Crisps, perfect for a slow autumn day.

We recently acquired a whole heap of apples, I am just one of those people who cannot say no to free food, especially when it is fresh fruit/vegetables. So this weekend I’m working my way througb trying out a few apple recipes, there may be a bit of apple overload on my bog. Apologies. It’s good to be seasonal though isn’t it.

I love Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. Today a quick apple search reminded me of apple crisps which I tried to make once before and was very disappointed. With so many apples to hand and some time to read through a number of different techniques I decided to revisit the idea. This time I was successful. So successful that my first batch were greedily devoured by the toddler very quickly and I have to make more.

If you have a few hours at home and its a bit cold, why not try this out as it will warm up the kitchen and make your house smell delicious too. I’ve now got a pot of these ready for snacks throughout the week.

Ingredients
  1. 4 apples
  2. 1/2 cup lemon juice
  3. 4 cups water
  4. 1 tsp cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 1/140C
  2. Slice the apples horizontally as thinly as possible (going through the core so you get a pretty star shape).
  3. Keep the skin on and do not worry about coring the apples first.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment and lightly grease it.
For plain apples
  1. Mix the lemon juice and water together and place the apple slices in the mixture.
  2. Remove, shake off excess water and place on the baking trays.
For spiced apples
  1. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together
  2. Lightly coat the apple slices in the mixture and place on the trays
  3. Bake the apple slices for about 3 hours, checking and turning every 30 minutes. For chewy apple slices remove them slightly earlier, if you leave them longer they will crisp up.
  4. Store in an airtight tin.
