Vitamin C packed baobab onion kale crisps

If you know what baobab tastes like then you’re probably thinking to yourself that these two flavours don’t belong together but trust me they reeeeally do!!
This is my new favourite kale crisp flavour, seriously I can’t get enough of it these days, it’s one of those flavours you just have to try to know how good it is.
Plus it makes a nice change for me as most of my favourite kale crisp recipes involve making a coating from nuts and seeds so it’s good to be mixing it up here and the baobab also adds even more vitamin C to the already Vit C jam packed kale.

For those of you who don’t know what baobab is, a short summary is: it’s a fruit that naturally dried on the plant and is then ground into a powder. It has a mild citrusy sweet flavour (like natures sherbert) but is low in sugar and high in antioxidants and Vit C, with 1 tablespoon containing between 30-38% of your RDA for Vit C, depending on the brand you get.
It’s such a versatile food and can be added to smoothies, baking, yogurt and porridge.

Chipotle avocado “mayo” with crispy courgette chips

Once you try this recipe you’ll love finding cheap ripe avocados in the supermarket that are like 8p so you can make it! That’s how this recipe came about plus the ripe, softer avos are the perfect ones to use as you’ll get a smoother result without lumps, although even with lumps it’s still da bomb!
I was honestly sweating when eating this, so although 1 teaspoon doesn’t sound like much, definitely taste as you go along making it and adjust to your tastes if you do somehow want it hotter!

Black forest wholemeal vegan pancakes

Who doesn’t want healthy chocolate breakfasts?
I’ve had a stash of frozen cherries in my freezer lately which I’ve been defrosting purely for this recipe alone because I love it so much.

The apple puree (I used a baby food pouch-trust me it works!) really gives it a lovely soft, moist texture without needing to add any oil which is a win! Plus it lends a slight sweetness to the pancakes to balance out the cacao.
This is now one of my top favourite breakfasts to make so I can’t wait for everyone else to try it!
