Gluten and Dairy Free Spiced Pineapple Muffins

Hello

I’m on a longish train journey tonight so I’m doing some work on the website.  I’m getting the rest of the posts for this week typed up, preparing my feature on meal prep and noting down some new ideas for the coming weeks.

I used a can of crushed pineapple to make these muffins and made sure I drained away the juice so the muffins weren’t too sticky.  You could also use fresh pineapple and pop it into the food processor to get little pineapple pieces.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Smoked Sausage, Tomato & Cheese Muffins

Hello

I can’t believe that it will be Christmas in just over a week.  I’ve had a fun but busy week on Christmas nights out, catching up with friends and seeing the new Star Wars film.  I was also really happy to be listed in the top 50 dairy free blogs in the world!  But I’ve still found some time to share a new recipe you all.

I nearly always make sweet muffins but this time I decided to have a  go at making some savoury muffins to eat with the butternut squash soup recipe I shared with you earlier in the week.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Carrot, Apple & Poppyseed Muffins

Hello

I made these muffins for breakfast last week.  I love lemon and poppy seed muffins so decided to try poppy seeds combined with some other flavours.  The sweetness of the apple and carrot work really well together.

I’ve also made some savoury muffins with cheese, tomato and smoked sausage which I’ll share with you next week.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple & Cardamom Muffins

Hello

Every so often I quite like to treat myself to a freshly made muffin with a giant coffee for breakfast.  Rather than making the same muffins I like to experiment with new flavours.

This recipe combines the crisp freshness of the apples with the lovely warming flavour of cardamom.  They are pretty quick to make, I made up the mix and then baked them in the oven while I was in the shower.

Enjoy!
