Gluten, Dairy & Egg Free Chocolate Cinnamon Banana Pudding

Hello

This recipe came about when I was trying to create a little sweet treat for after lunch.  It is quite similar to the Alpro chocolate pots but I’ve also added in some banana and cinnamon.  It is super simple to make, basically just mixing together a few ingredients.  Hope you like it.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate, Pistachio & Cinnamon Cake

Evening everyone

I had my ankle stabilisation surgery yesterday so feeling a bit sorry for myself tonight.  The operation went very well and I’m constantly amazed (and very appreciative) of the effort Gordon (my orthopaedic surgeon) goes to to keep my Ehlers Danlos syndrome under control.

This is my new look, it’s a bit stormtrooper chic:

Enough of my self pity, tonight’s recipe is for a delicious gluten and dairy free chocolate, pistachio and cinnamon cake.

Enjoy!
