NUT & SEED CRACKERS

NUT & SEED CRACKERS

I saw these at a Danish bakery in London and thought what a great idea for a low carb cracker. It’s filled with nuts and seeds and held together by eggs. I used the biscotti method for baking it which is twice baked. This makes […]

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

This recipe came about because I had almond butter and cherry jam and wanted to make a dessert. These are sweet and chewy and the almond butter gives it a nice almond flavour. Definitely great for a weeknight treat.

HEMP SEED PARMESAN

HEMP SEED PARMESAN

So first thing – there is no parmesan cheese in this. This is a cheese alternative so to speak. You’ve probably heard of vegan parmesan which is essentially a dairy-free replacement for parmesan cheese. Usually its a mix of cashews and nutritional yeast. I, however […]

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

My Limoncello cookies are so good. They are something between a cake and cookies thanks to the yogurt in them. I wanted to try this cookie flavoured with almonds instead of lemon and they were perfect. I changed up a few of the ingredients. I […]

DATE & WALNUT OAT BARS

DATE & WALNUT OAT BARS

This recipe happened when I was doing one of my pantry purges. I had no flour (like most people when we were in locked down) but had lots of oats. I first tried these as cookies but they bake better as bars. The secret ingredient […]

FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

Figs and walnuts are one of my favourite combinations. Whether I make a cake or just pop a fig and walnut in my mouth at the same time, the flavor combination is great. When I started making palmiers, I knew I had to try it […]

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

I have been making this cake for years. I have taken a retro dessert and turned it up a notch with coconut and extra pineapple. It’s also easy to make as you are not making the cake from scratch. I like to make this in […]

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

I had a bake set when I was a child. It included some recipes and my favourite was this peanut butter and jelly thumb print cookie. I lost the recipe, but I remember the cookie, and these taste just like it. They are also quite […]

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

I’ve made many variations of this biscuit. This jalapeno cheddar is my newest one. It tasted like cornbread. The almond flour gives it the cornbread texture. It’s also keto friendly.

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

I love shortbread. My Mom would make it every Christmas. I’ve taken a basic recipe and jazzed it up a bit by adding almond flour, dried cranberries, and white chocolate. I like to serve this on a plate and let people break off what they […]
