Paul asked me if I could make him some sugar free crunchie biscuits and I found this recipe online. As usual, I’ve made some changes because of the ingredients I had on hand differed slightly. They don’t look as pretty as the originals but they are yummy.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ground quick oats
  • 1 cup unground quick oats
  • 50g ground walnuts
  • 100g chopped raisins
  • 50ml canola oil (if I had coconut oil I would definitely have used that rather)
  • 6 tablespoons honey

Method

  • Mix both cups of oats, walnuts and raisins together.
  • In a pan or microwave, melt the oil and honey on low heat.
  • Add liquid to dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Spread into a greased tray and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Cut into squares (I only had a round tray so mine will be a bit non-squarish) and enjoy with a cuppa.

Free* Banana Bread

April 5, 2015

*Free from eggs, gluten, milk, sugar.

So its Pesach, that means no flour and since Paul is diabetic I cant use sugar either.

I found {this} recipe on a FB food forum and I have tweeked it a little to suit us.

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch of (over)ripe bananas
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts (I bought walnuts in their shells, my kids said they are not REAL if they are already shelled, I dont have a nut cracker, I improvised with a heavy bottomed pan and went all HULK SMASH on the poor walnuts, it was fun!)
  • 2 cups potato flour
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • pinch of salt (I forgot about the salt, oh well)

Method

  • Peel and mash the bananas.
  • Chop up your shelled walnuts, I blitzed them in a small food processor.
  • Pit your dates and cut or shred them into small pieces.
  • Add bananas, potato flour, walnuts, dates and salt in a bowl.
  • Mix until just combined.
  • Place in an appropriate sized loaf tin.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes at 180ÂșC
  • Enjoy hot with butter slathered on!
