Carrot cake flapjacks (dairy free)

Spiced, warming carrot cake flapjacks with no refined sugar & lots of healthy fiber & fats from oats, rye, flaxseeds and fruit/veg. I purposely lowered the amount of fat from oil that standard recipes use but they still came out great with a slightly crisp texture!

I also made these dairy free by using coconut oil instead of butter which works really well with the carrot cake flavours. Perfect for winter time when carrots are so easy to get & the spices are lovely on cold mornings, plus they’re portable too for an on the go healthier snack!


Easy banana protein oat cookies

Sometimes you just want a snack to tide you over in between meals or maybe just something small with a bit of fruit for those of you who don’t have a huge appetite at breakfast but want to get more goodness into your day. Then these are a great way to do that, plus, no added sugar!

I used a plant protein here to balance out the carbs but it also makes a good post exercise snack until you can get home/to work to make a proper breakfast. These cookies are also pretty flexible in terms of adding different ingredients to make them taste they way you want. I like coconut and berries as I used a white choc coconut flavour protein but you can do whatever you like such as spices e,g cinnamon/ginger or some chopped dark chocolate!


Banana bread carrot cake muffin mashup

Didn’t quite know what exactly to call these as when I first made them I wanted them to taste like a carrot cake flavour but somehow they just ended up like banana bread, which was really yummy especially warm from the oven.
Then the next time I made them I added lots of ginger and coconut and they tasted like carrot cake but the banana still came through so I decided to mash the two together because otherwise I just can’t decide which one it is lol!!

These are great for quick breakfasts once you make them as you’re sorted for a few days or they even make good post workout snacks if you go for the protein option below. They can also be adapted for many diets including: vegan, gluten free, sugar free etc.

I also love the addition of the pecans here, they’re one of my favourite nuts especially when roasted which really develops the flavour and it goes so well with the banana and cinnamon so I highly recommend you use these if you can find them, they’re also a great source of healthy fats which benefit the skin and satisfy hunger.

Easy chocolate pumpkin bread

Chocolate flavored pumpkin bread, great with some nut butter and filled with goodness from the pumpkin and banana.
I used wholemeal flour for more fiber and the antioxidants in the cacao, the vitamin E in almonds and plant based vitamin A from the pumpkin make this one good for the skin too, woo!

Free from pumpkin bread

You can make this sugar free by swapping the coconut sugar with a granular alternative plus by using a gluten free flour this is also suitable for GF and vegan diets.
I like to lightly heat or toast the slices and serve them with some nut butter or you can use a spread of choice and add some more if desired to really amp up the nutrition.

Breakfast oatmeal carrot cake bars

Breakfast carrot cake bars made using natural, nourishing ingredients that will keep you full up til lunchtime. This can also be edited to make them suit whatever tastes you like i.e. more sweet, add fruit of choice etc and are great for portable breakfasts  plus they’ll last you a few mornings.

The recipe can be adapted to meet vegan/gluten free/ sugar free diets as necessary and are a good way of sneaking fruit & veg into people. It’s also optional but I used protein powder instead of standard flour because it balances out the macros a little more meaning they’re a good option post-workout too.

Hot cross scones

These hot cross scones are filled with flavours of hot cross buns like orange, fruit, spices etc and can be low sugar/ refined sugar free (if you choose RSF choc) plus use higher fiber, more nutritious ingredients. They can be made dairy free/vegan friendly with simple adjustments too, so no need for anyone to miss out. They also use a bit of dried fruit so have some goodness in there for the kids and are a good, easy baking option for them to help out with in the kitchen to keep them busy for a few minute!

These are best served warm but as you need to add the choc crosses they’ll need to be cool enough but you can always gently reheat them before you consume them.
