Omega 3, healthy chicken nuggets

These are so simple, I don’t know why we don’t all make our own. When I think of the bits that might be in a shop bought chicken nugget and the fact it takes no time at all to create these…it’s a no brainer. You’re welcome everyone! I buy the best chicken breast I can…

low carb, chocolate chip cookie

Oh my goodness, when you want a cookie, nothing else will do. However, when I make cookies for my kids, I am horrified by the amount of sugar that goes into them. So, I have sought out a low carb alternative. This one tops even the best of the full sugar, shop bought squidgy marvels….

Celeriac coleslaw

I never would have thought it, but this dish using raw celeriac is simple and surprising. It’s much less cloy than usual coleslaw and would work so well with a sharing platter of meats and vegetable sticks. I used an electric grater or you could use a food processor to save time. It was easy…

Oatcakes #2

I’m finding it hard to get hold of oatcakes, so I’m experimenting with my oatcake recipes…. It’s hard to make them bind and not too crumbly. This is the best yet. They’re really tasty and you can supplement any herb. I’m going to try nigella seeds next, but this one uses dried sage. You can…

Healthy flour free cookies

Adapted from a Deliciously Ella recipe, these are so easy to make and use up brown bananas. The kids gobbled them down and have a healthy snack.
