So this recipe is one I adapted from a previous recipe I did with similar ingredients and spices like turmeric or ginger depending on your tastes.
I adapted it to create this cherry Bakewell version full of healthy fats, lovely cherries plus lots of fiber and natural sweetness, this would make a great sub for your afternoon pick me up or a great way to sneak in veg at breakfast! Plus there’s so much nutrition there and sources of fiber for your gut so you should definitely try these at least once, you can always tweak them to suit your tastes.
Great for those hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven and make the kitchen even hotter!!
These no bake donuts are a great combo of rich, dark cacao plus coconut and dates for natural sweetness so they’re not loaded with refined sugars.
Free from donut goodness!
This recipe is also easy to adapt i.e. use gluten free oats for coeliac and a dark choc that’s dairy free etc plus it’s free from refined sugars and I added a superfood blend by VeganTek which has lots of fantastic ingredients in it including ones good for digestion and probiotics which are even more effective because the mix doesn’t need to be heated.
You can even use one after a workout as a refueling treat or a way to satisfy your chocolatey cravings in a more nutritious way!
A healthier, grain free, sugar free but not taste free carrot cake banana bread!
Because this uses non grain based ingredients it’s also gluten free and can be made vegan too, see notes below.
Gut friendly carrot cake loaf
I used a single ripe banana in this recipe for natural sweetness and moisture plus it also means you don’t need any sugar but as usual you can adapt this to suit your own tastes. I’ve also included some optional additions that are great ingredients to add if you would like to increase gut health. For example, collagen is high in amino acids which are heavily involved in gut cell lining replication and baobab/tigernut flour are prebiotic foods, plus the more you diversify your diet the more diverse your gut will also be.

Didn't think there could be a healthy, tasty, low sugar AND low carb donut? Well think again because I created one! I was so careful with this recipe to strike the right balance between using low carb coconut flour (which I've found in Tesco before) but also making...
