• Healthy No Bake Mini carrot muffins

    This is a great little recipe,requires no flour,no eggs,no dairy,no sugar and no hastle.


    1 cup grated carrot

    1/2 cup of almond flour

    1/2 cup of  grated cocunut

    2 tbls chia

    1/2 cup of raisins

    1/2 cup of walnuts

    3 tbls water

    1 tsp cinnamon

    1tsp nutmeg

    1/2 tsp vanilla

    1 tsp orange zest

    For the topping (my favourite bit)

    1 cup of cashews

    2 tbls manuka honey (or any honey will do)

    1/2 orange zest

    2 tbs juice of an orange

    2 tbs of canola oil or cocunut oil

    Mix the water and the chia together and leave a side for a while to form a jelly type substance.

    Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix in the chia when it´s ready. Blend the ingredients together well.

    Squash the mixture into individual mini muffin moulds .

    To make the topping, place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until you have a kind of paste.

    Top the mini muffins with this and pop in the fridge for up to an hour.

    Malcolm tells me they taste like a dessert version of carrot salad, i think it taste´s like delicious! And no guilt,maybe a small bit….

  • Beetroot Hummus Recipe

    Ana Maria's Beetroot Hummus We’ve been asked about our beetroot hummus a few times, so we thought we’d share our recipe for this delicious and colourful food. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Ingredients: 3 medium size beetroots 1 can of chick peas 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves 1tbs of tahini Salt to taste Juice of 1/2 lemon Instructions: Boil the beet root for about 20-30 minutes until you can pierce a knife through quite easily. Peel the beet root and put to one side. Rinse and peel(optional) the chick peas and then place them in a food processor. Add the tahini, lemon, olive oil, salt to the mix and blend. Now add the beetroot and blend again, add more salt or lemon to taste. Lovely!
