Grain Free Cookies

22 Feb

I came across this recipe from My Whole Food Life, a blog which has some great simple recipes.  I’ve been wanting to make some cookies for a few weeks but haven’t trusted myself to make my favourite cookies, Healthy Crunch Muesli Cookies (from Teresa Cutter) as its hard for me to stop at 1, 2, 3 maybe 4 or 5 ha ha….  These ones were pretty good and I am happy with eating just 1!

You will need:

100g almond meal (you call mill whole almonds in your thermomix for 10 seconds)

60g coconut flour (this is more than the original recipe as I found the batter too wet)

50g coconut sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

85g coconut oil

40g almond milk

3 eggs

1 vanilla pod (scrape out the seeds or you can use vanilla extract instead)

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

After milling almonds, place all other dry ingredients into your TM bowl and stir for 4-5 seconds on speed 4.

Add all the wet ingredients and stir through on speed 5 until combined.

Roll out into balls, flatten and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook for 12 – 15 minutes.

Cool completely before enjoying with a cup of tea!

I have kept mine in the fridge and they are still fine after a week.

Enjoy xx

Banana Bread, no sugar, grains or dairy!

24 Jun

This recipe came up a couple of times on my Facebook newsfeed so I copied it into Paprika (my online recipe collection) bought a bag of bananas and have been waiting patiently for them to turn brown.  Well its been long enough….  they aren’t as ripe as what I would like but I couldn’t wait any longer!

I have converted this for the Thermomix but for the original recipe, you will find it here on the Primally Inspired website.

You will need:

15g coconut oil

220g bananas (approximately 4)

4 x eggs

10g vanilla extract

5g cinnamon

65g coconut flour

5g baking soda

pinch of salt

45g walnuts or if you prefer dark choc chips, pecans, silvered almonds, raisins etc

Method:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and grease a loaf tin (I used coconut oil spray – thanks Emma for buying it for me!)

Place all ingredients into your TM and mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds.

If your coconut oil was solid like mine, put this into your TM bowl first and melt for 2 mins on 50 degrees and then add everything else in.

Pour into your loaf tin and bake for around 40 mins or until cooked through.

I would have loved to cover my slice in butter but this month I am doing dairy free so opted for some coconut yoghurt and a drizzle of honey – delish!

The Suveran Cafe (Oxford Street, Bondi Junction Sydney), is up there with my faves!  This place is amazing – sugar free, dairy free, flour free, gluten free, wheat free, yeast free, grain free, soy free, egg free, legume free, tap water and nightshade free!!!! AND, the food tastes amazing!!!  AND cheap!

A friend at work recommended I go to Suveran when I was travelling to Sydney last year and I’m so glad we made the trip.  We stay in Manly when in Sydney so it’s not exactly close to Suveran but well worth the effort.  We have been a few times now and will go back every time we are there.  On your first visit, you even get a free chocolate!

The guys that work there are really friendly and obviously have a real passion for health.  They also sell herbal cleanses, supplements, books, cooking classes and skin care.

Next time you are in Bondi, check out The Suveran Cafe, you won’t be disappointed!
