This low carb, grain free “muffin” that can be made in a matter of minutes is a lifesaver for when you want a sub for bread or to bulk out a meal or even a quick breakfast.
It takes seconds to whip up and only a minute & a half in the microwave to cook, you can gather/make your filling while it cooks which makes it a great quick, easy, crap free meal option, suitable for even keto, paleo and grain free diets.
Once cooked, you can slice into rounds and serve whatever you like on top or use it as a substitute for bread for soups/spreads etc.
I like to have sauteed mushrooms and avocado with mine for a light dinner or savoury breakfast.
This is also a great reduced carb option for the colder weather as once the temperature drops, we tend to overdo the comforting carbs so this one will help balance out your meals on rest/less active days.
This savoury pancake recipe is packed full of veg and fibre plus is great for a quick cook meal any time of the day, double up the recipe to make seconds for the next days lunch. It’s so versatile as well because you can serve it with your favourite dressing or sauce and use up any spare salad that’s lying around your fridge too.
Grain free high fibre chickpea flour-where you find it?
I use chickpea/besan flour (made from baby chickpeas or split lentils) which is super cheap and can be found in large Asda or Tescos, find it in the aisle where you get canned coconut milk. It’s a great way to ramp up your fibre but do remember it is different from usual flours so will have a more dense texture to it but it’s not a big problem in savoury recipes.
These secretly healthy slices are mostly made out of veg, including white beans and sweet potato and you can make these sugar free, not to mention the addition of some cinnamon and dark chocolate adds antioxidants that are a bonus on top of the fibre loaded veg!
Plus these are grain, soy, wheat, dairy & gluten free and don’t require any flour either.
This is a great one for sneaking veg and more nutritional goodness into fussy eaters, they’ll never know there’s beans in there and seeing the dark chocolate will make them think it’s a proper dessert!
I love sweet cinnamon flavours but feel free to adapt this one to your tastes such as if you like a ginger and dark choc combo then you can add ginger spice instead.
"Taco" a look at this indulgent, healthier Saturday night fakeaway! (sorry, couldn't resist). For those of you not from Northern Ireland you may have a different idea of what a taco chip is but over here it's a typical takeaway dish that uses fried white chips that...read more
