Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Choc Chip Granola

Image Text

I’ve had a really busy last couple of weeks, I’ve been away the last two weekends and whilst that is fabulous fun it means I’ve been chasing my tail a bit during the week catching up on things. This morning I’ve enjoyed just getting up and making my granola, photographing it in the natural light and posting it straight on the website.

I’m absolutely craving the light nights to come, my photos for the website always look rubbish and orange when I photograph during the week but sometimes I have no choice if I’m not about at the weekend – so roll on the light nights and better photographs.

My book about gluten and dairy free cake is also starting to take shape, I’ve picked the 50 cakes I want to develop recipes for, have split them into chapters such a Fabulously Fruity, Magical Muffins etc. So far I have finished the recipes and photographs for a flourless chocolate cake, peppermint slices, banana choc chip muffins and raspberry and white chocolate blondies. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of the book.

This recipe is back to one of my favourite breakfast treats – the humble granola, this time I’ve made a peanut chocolate chip version. I’ve served it with a little dairy free coconut yoghurt and some cherries. If you can’t have peanuts then try making this with a free nut butter and omit the peanuts.

Have a great weekend guys no matter what you are up to.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Cookies and Ice-Cream

I have a real sweet tooth – as you probably gathered from the amount of baking I upload onto the website. No matter how big the dinner I always have room for a little sweet treat. This time I’ve made a rich chocolate cookie topped with dairy free ice-cream and chocolate sauce.

The chef also has first choice of the leftover bits once you stamp out the cookie shapes – thats my rule anyway:)

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Hello everyone

These cookies are so easy to make it’s ridiculous. After a long weekend away and a busy day back at work I whipped up these cookies in ten minutes as an after dinner sweet treat. I’ve recently finished a recipe for a flourless gluten and dairy free chocolate cake for my new recipe book which got me wondering if you could make a flourless cookie.

I’ve turn to one of my favourite ingredients, peanut butter, as the base for this recipe. These have actually turned out to be one of my favourite cookies I’ve made, slightly crisp on the outside but still soft in the middle, perfect.

Enjoy!
