Peanut butter and “jelly” chickpea pudding

If you’re familiar with my blog then you’ll know I’m a big fan of sneaking veg into recipes anytime I can, so you shouldn’t be surprised by the sound of a chickpea pudding, this one really works thanks to the strong flavours of PB & J, which is a classic itself but is given a healthy makeover in this recipe.

For the “jelly” in this recipe I used a fruit only sweetened jam and combined it with some high oleic peanut butter, which is a type of peanut that has a higher monounsaturated fat profile (similar to avocados!) which is healthier for the heart and also means they’re more stable during heating and won’t go rancid as quickly, plus it tastes amazing and really helps make the chickpeas taste delicious too!
This is such a nourishing, yummy recipe that although I called it a “pudding” I often have it for breakfast, hehehe, gives you something to get out of bed for!

Savoury squash/pumpkin pancakes

As it’s coming up to Halloween in the next few weeks you’ll have access to/probably end up with lots of leftover pumpkin or squash which means this is a great savoury pancake recipe to use it up in and also makes a tasty, nourishing dinner.
I’ve also included a “cheats” version here for anyone who doesn’t have the time to cook the squash beforehand or maybe never roasts a bunch in the first place to have any leftover, so don’t worry I’ve got you covered, which means even time poor people don’t need to miss out on this one.

Cheats version
For this I use baby food purees, it may seem strange but I think these are a god send sometimes! You can pick up purees from the supermarkets in the baby food section which makes this recipe super easy and I think a great way to enable folks to make quick, homemade food without much fuss. If you can find it, you could also use canned pumpkin.

Sweet “pizza” breakfast wraps

This recipe is such a mix of many others that I struggled to name it (clearly), but the title does sum it up pretty well.
It involves wraps that are sweet, that I like to have for breakfast (lunch is great too) but it’s fun to cut them into slices so that it resembles a pizza (also a great way to encourage kids to eat them and the fruit on them).

These are a great way to use up any leftover wraps before they go stale and are super quick to prepare in the mornings meaning you get a nutritious breakfast with minimum effort AND makes a change from porridge (even though I adore porridge).
