Banana Bread (Gluten-Free)

Every family needs a banana bread recipe… here’s ours.

For many weekday mornings, my son and I have this super simple gluten free banana bread (actually, we also like to have this lemon bread, so we kinda alternate now and again). I also like to pack it for when we go out for a snack, and it’s also great for an afternoon refuel. It’s delicious, soft, hearty and super low in sugar — so I definitely don’t feel guilty that my son and I can eat a whole loaf a day. (Which can happen, it’s that yummy.)

Classic Pavlova

Out of all the desserts and the baking techniques I wanted to perfect, pavlova was it.

We had a family friend who, growing up, would make pavlova for dessert every Christmas lunch we attended at their place. It always looked so fancy, so grown up, and so sophisticated. Looking at it year by year, I was deeply impressed — something about a pavlova screamed “next level baking”.

So when I made pavlova for the first time last year and it came out perfectly, my family (and myself) were shocked. I knew I had a winner, and really, if I could do it with my little baking skills and experience, then anyone can do it. In fact, I’ve found that it’s really not so difficult after all!

Simple Lemon Bread (Gluten-Free)

Something to know about me; I love lemon flavoured anything. Really, anything. (Well, except an actual lemon, funnily enough!)

So you can probably guess that one of my favourite things in the world is lemon cake.

However, eating lemon cake, with its delicious sweet and sour lemon icing (ugh, so good) regularly isn’t exactly the healthiest, so there is this “lemon bread” option. It’s less sugary than a lemon cake and more of a savoury, hearty buttery lemon bread.

Danish Vanilla Sponge Cake (Gluten Free)

My love for vanilla holds no bounds both in both taste and scent. I love anything vanilla flavoured and vanilla scented. I even have a book on the history of vanilla (nerd-alert) so once I was of age, a goal of mine was to prefect the art of the vanilla cake… because what is better than vanilla cake?!

Synonymous with birthday parties, fun and laughter, vanilla cake is the perfect companion to celebrations of all kind.

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins 

Prepare to be amazed, friends! These peanut-butter-banana-chocolate-chip muffins (I know, a mouthful) are as healthy as muffins can get. They contain no flour so it’s naturally gluten-free, use natural sweeteners, barely has any sugar and are full of protein.

Best of all, they take less than 20 minutes to make including baking time. Possibly the easiest muffins of all time, and the simplest baking recipe I’ve shared thus far on the blog (another simple, healthy muffin recipe of mine is this one).

Blueberry Banana Muffins (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo)

A month ago, I ventured into baking with more fruit since I am trying to cut down on sugar in my home — for my family, but also for myself. And, although it may be quite obvious, fruit is still the best, healthiest way to sweeten bakes. (Well, that and honey.)

I’ve been experimenting with more natural sweeteners in my baked goods, as you’ll see in this recipe, and I have to admit even I am quite surprised at how easy it is to bake without sugar — with natural sweeteners and lots of fruit, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth in your baked goods.
