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 […]

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 […]

WALNUT FLAX HEARTS

WALNUT FLAX HEARTS

These make for a great snack. With lots of walnuts and sprouted flax they are also super nutritious. I like to make a big batch of them and store them in the freezer, then I can pop them in my mouth whenever I want.

MUHAMMARA

MUHAMMARA

When I was visiting turkey this spread was always offered as an appetizer with bread. It was my favourite. I had no idea what it was or what was even it in. All I knew is that it tasted delicious. I’ve seen this made to […]

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

I feel like everyone should have a banana muffin recipe. Whether it’s passed down from your grandmother or you saw something on the food network. It’s one of those recipes that you keep with you and can create over and over again. I always have […]

SPINACH PESTO PASTA

SPINACH PESTO PASTA

I love raw pasta sauces. They are quick, easy, fresh, and delicious. My favourite is this vibrant green pesto. It feels like I’ve blended a salad and mixed it with pasta. When I eat it, I feel like I’m getting my greens in for the […]

SPICED WALNUTS

SPICED WALNUTS

This cafe I used to go to for lunch would make a salad with dried fruit and candied walnuts. They were sweet and spicy, they used curry powder for the spice and sugar. I wanted to try the sweet and spicy mix but without using […]

FIG & WALNUT CROSTINI

FIG & WALNUT CROSTINI

I was having friends over and I wanted to make something quick and already assembled…meaning not a cheese platter for us to munch on while we talk, and it would have to go great with a bottle of wine. I had a jar of fig […]
