Almond Butter Pancakes

These are my self-appointed, self-titled “famous” Almond Butter Pancakes. I like the idea of having a recipe that everyone in the family loves and knows of me, and so far, these pancakes are close to grabbing that title. One, because my family actually do like them — so far, this is the most requested thing I make in my family.

I wanted to share it on the blog not only because I think it’s really good, but because, even though it’s super quick and easy (it contains only 5 ingredients) I somehow always forget them.

So instead of trying to search for that small scrap of paper where I penned it down (and my scribbles of several experiments to get the milk ratio just right for peak fluffiness), now it’s on the blog and I can easily see it myself.

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.)

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.

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.
