Gluten and Dairy Free Raspberry Chocolate Porridge

Hello everyone

I’m a fan of any recipe that involves chocolate for breakfast and can still be classed as somewhat healthy. This is just a simple porridge recipe I’ve added a little cocoa powder to and sweetened with a drop of honey/maple syrup.  If you can’t tolerate gluten free oats I have a similar recipe which uses quinoa instead.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Steak Quesadilla

Hello

I made these steak quesadillas last weekend for lunch when my friend was up visiting from London.  He is a photographer so I forced him into taking some pictures of Ollie.  It is nice to have some pictures of Ollie when he is actually awake – most of the photos I have of him he is a bit of a sleepy crumpled mess!

 

You can change up this recipe to make them vegetarian or you can use chicken or pulled pork – all would work well.  I used BFree gluten free wraps and Violife dairy free cheese, both of which I purchased in Tesco.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Salted Peanut Chocolate Cookies

Hello

I’m not sure the reason why but I always tend to make a cake when I go into the kitchen to bake rather than biscuits or cookies.  I seem to be much more confident when developing a cake recipe than when I’m working on new biscuit ideas – no idea why though.

I made these cookies a few weeks back when it was snowing – as I had a broken arm I stayed indoors and made cookies rather then being out in the street shovelling snow with everyone else.  I did share the cookies with the people shovelling  snow though.

I’ve made these with salted peanuts as I love a salt and chocolate combination.  If you want a more traditional cookie you can substitute the salted peanuts for some dairy free chocolate chips.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Cheese Waffles with Avocado & Fried Egg

Hello everyone

This is my ideal breakfast – I love anything that is pancake or waffle based.  When I’m down visiting friends in London we always got to the The Good Life Eatery for breakfast so I can get the gluten and dairy free waffles with mashed banana, berries and coconut yoghurt.

Today’s waffle is a take on eggs and avocado toast.  I’ve made the waffle with a little dairy free cheese added in for extra flavour.  You can adjust this recipe to suit your own taste – adding a poached egg for example or  if you don’t have a waffle iron then use the batter to make pancakes.

If you are short of time in the morning then you prep the batter mix the night before and store it in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Fritters

Hello

I made these last Sunday for a little afternoon snack – perfect with a cup of coffee especially as the cold weather is back!  These apple fritters are really quick to make – just whisk together a batter similar to making pancakes and stir in the chopped apple.

I heated the leftover fritters in the oven next day and had them as a treat breakfast with some dairy free yoghurt and strawberries.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Crispy Sweet Chilli Beef

Hello

I’m very lucky that both my local Chinese and Indian takeaway make a couple of dishes that are gluten and dairy free and safe for me to enjoy as a little treat.  I do miss crispy sweet chilli beef though as that is not one of the dishes I can order.  I thought I would have a little go at making this dish at home – so if you are craving Chinese give this recipe a try.

Enjoy!

My Five Favourite Gluten and Dairy Free Dessert Recipes

Hello

I’m definitely a dessert girl – no meal is complete without a dessert (actually I’m enjoying a little bowl of mini chocolate donuts as I write this).  Just because I’m gluten and dairy free I don’t let that hold me back.  If you are looking for some inspiration for gluten and dairy free dessert then try one of my favourite recipes.

Enjoy!
