Pretty much the most amazing seed crackers EVER!

Yep. I am claiming these as pretty much the most amazing seed crackers ever. They are gluten free, sugar free and nasty chemical preservative free! And super easy to make!

What you need:

1/2 cup rice flour (I used brown rice and milled it in my thermomix)
2 Tablespoons Chia seeds
1/4 cup Peppita seeds
1/2 cup of sesame seeds
1/4 cup of black sesame seeds
3 Tablespoons linseeds
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 Egg
2 Tablesoons water
Himalayan pink Salt and some pepper

(Feel free to change up the seeds you use, just use whatever seeds you like/have in the house)

Basically throw all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Then add in the wet ingredients and mix till thoroughly combined.
Spread the mix onto a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and give it a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. I like to put a second sheet of baking paper on top so that i can smooth it out without getting my hands all seedy.
Ideally the crackers should be less than half a centimetre thick.
Next, pop them in the oven at 150 c for around 30 minutes. Crackers are done when you can tap the centre and it sounds hollow or hard. if its still a little soft then give it another 5 minutes.
Leave them on the tray to cool and then when nice and crunchy break into cracker sized pieces.

Seed crackers

Store in an airtight container for around 4 days.

Ooh and make sure you keep the seedy left overs that break off as these are awesome to sprinkle on to salads!

If you give these a go, I would love it if you would leave me a comment with how you went!

Coconut and Blueberry Candida Safe Muffin Recipe

On Sunday’s, I bake.

Earlier today I stopped off with my man friend to grab a drink from a takeaway shop on our way home from the beach. They had one of those little glass domes with muffins sitting looking up at me all delicious looking and full of sugar. Since I am currently off sugar and winning the war on candida I opted to stare at the muffins instead of eat them… and then dreamed up my own candida safe muffin recipe to make as soon as I got home.


 

The results are as follows…

Coconut blueberry muffins

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggs
  • 80gms melted butter or coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 Tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons of xylitol (would be great with honey, rice malt syrup or maple syrup)
  • ¼ cup of shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and get yourself sorted with a muffin tray or patty pans.

Whisk eggs till they are well a little foamy or until you get tired. Then add in the sweetener, melted butter, coconut cream and vanilla. Keep whisking till well combined.

Add the coconut flour and baking powder and mix together. Don’t panic when the coconut starts sucking up all the liquid – it will be ok!

Add toss in the blueberries and coconut and stir through.

Spoon the mix into a greased muffin tray or patty pans and sprinkle with extra coconut and some cinnamon then pop into the oven for around 20 minutes.

Muffins are done when you can stab them with a skewer and it comes out clean.


 

These guys are high in protein, and low in sugar so they are a kick ass snack to have on hand.

I would love love love it if you gave them ago and then popped back to let me know how you liked them.

Pimp my Water – Sugar free Summer Drink recipes

Alright peeps! The warmer weather is finally here and that means lots of sitting in the sunshine with cool bevy’s, BBQ ing with mates and a few cool bevy’s, and just staying cool in general… with cool bevy’s.

A few years ago when I cut back my sugar I had huge struggles at this time of the year finding something refreshing that wasn’t full of crap. Water is pretty ace but sometimes on a stinking hot day a glass of water just does not cut it. You want something with a bit of flavour, something fruity and bright with a bit more pizazz! Yes, a drink with pizazz… But you don’t want to fall down the well and end up with a sugar hangover the next morning.

Lucky for all of us there are some super dooper easy and delicious ways to pimp your sugar free beverage! I had a little play in the kitchen

I had a play with some simple bits and pieces and and whipped up these 4 sugar free summer drink recipes you might like to try for your next Sunday BBQ. The best bit though – its totally experimental! So you can try whatever takes your fancy!

All you need is a killer base. I used natural mineral water for some bubbly fun, coconut water for sweet hydration and pomegranate iced tea for a bit of extra colour and flavour. You can totally just used normal water though.


 

Bevy number 1

Citrus infused mineral water

Citrus infused mineral water

Cut some lemons, lime, and orange into chunks and squash gently into a glass or jug. Poke around a little with a spoon or straw to release some of the juice and flavour. Then top with natural mineral water.

I like to poke at the fruit with a straw to continue to release the flavour as I drink. AND you can refill this a few times throughout the day.


 

Bevy number 2.

Coconut and Mint

Coconut and Mint

Take a bunch of mint and break off the leaves, give them a little squeeze to gently bruise them and release the flavours.

Pop them into a glass and fill with coconut water. I used Coconut essence brand because it’s my fave.

Again, use the straw to keep releasing the flavours from the mint and refill with plain water throughout the day.


 

Bevy number 3.

Bluberry bubbles

Bluberry bubbles

This is literally just frozen blueberries in natural mineral water. The colour is rad and the taste is simple and refreshing.


 

Bevy number 4.

Citrus infused iced tea

Citrus infused iced tea

I used my left over citrus chunks from bevy number 1 and again squished them into a glass. Top up with your favourite iced tea and bam! Fancy pants mock tail! (I used pomegranate fruit tisane from T2)


 

If you have any leftover fruit then chop it up and freeze it into ice cube trays for a quick drink pimp later on.

It seriously is that simple to make up new concoctions.  Fruit and Water – Genius!
