You’re crackers! (Primal)

crackersSometimes it is nice to have a little bit if crunch. Something to nibble at, something to dip into your super green soup, a movie night nibble with home-made guacamole, something to add blue cheese to or scoop up that last bits of your homemade curry and Cauli-rice. That would be cue for a drum roll please….

I love these cheeky little crackers, they are simple, easy to make, totally primal and taste Yummers to boot!

They also look look good broken up and scattered over your super greens salad if you are wanting to go a little crazy!

Ingredients

2oz Almond flour
1oz Mixed seeds
6 tablespoons Almond milk

Method

  • Pre-heat a fan assisted oven to 50ºc (they can take up to 5 hours as you are dehydrating rather than cooking, but it is worth it.)
  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Spread onto baking paper to form a thin sheet.
  • Using a spatula, divide into squares or a pastry cutter into shapes.
  • You can also use a spoon and dollop and spread into a nice little biscuit size portions, flattening and spreading with the back of the spoon.
  • Place in the middle of the preheated oven for 3 hours.
  • Check and if solid enough, lift from paper, turn and leave in oven for a further 2 hours till dehydrated and then set onto the drying rack.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Ingredient suggestion

If you want to mix it up a bit, use coconut milk instead of almond milk and add some dessicated coconut for a sweeter lilt. Add more seeds as you desire…try golden linseeds. Or why not mix in a bit of grated cheddar to the mix! The possibilities are many!

Enjoy crunchykins! JL x

Apple and Cinnamon Loaf (Primal)

Posted on

Whilst making my bread mixture today I had a brainwave…instead of making two simple loaves why not make one normal and one fruity loaf! GENIUS! I know, no need to applaud just yet!

I have been toying with making an apple cake/loaf for a few days now, and today was my chance to try it out. Success it was and I have it on good authority (mum, again) that it tastes good, moist, just sweet enough and rather delicious with your cup of tea or coffee of a morning or afternoon!

I could and probably would normally use cooking apples but all I had to hand was a rosy apple, so I used that. It was really very simple to make and here is the recipe:

Apple and Cinnamon Loaf

Ingredients

  • 4 oz Almond flour
  • 1.5 oz Milled flaxseed
  • 1.5 oz Mixed seeds
  • 1 oz Chopped nuts
  • 1.5 oz Organic unsalted butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Red apple (pink lady should do the sweet thing)
  • 2 Tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 Tsp vanilla essence

Directions

  • Pre-heat a fan assisted oven to 170°c
  • Chop the apple into small pieces and put to one side leaving several slices to decorate the top if you like
  • Measure all of the dry ingredients and mix into a bowl
  • Measure and rub in the butter
  • Whisk and add the eggs
  • Measure and add the vanilla and cinnamon
  • Butter a loaf or cake tin
  • Add half of the mixture to the tin, spread and even out
  • Add the chopped apple to the central part leaving a small area around the outside
  • Add the remainder of the mixture on top of the apple pieces and using a fork spread and flatten
  • Add the slices of apple for decoration
  • Place on the top shelf for 15-20 min or until risen and golden in colour and hollow to the tap
  • Tip out, allow to cool on a rack and then sit down to a generous slice and enjoy!!!

P.s…I made two small loaves…so if you feel it needs more time, test with a skewer in the centre after 15 minutes and decide for yourselves!

Yummers! Enjoy cakeykins! JL x

Kate’s Blueberry cupcakes (Primal)

Posted on

This has to be said…for a cupcake which is totally primal friendly, they taste good!

Now, sugar addicts you may beg to differ…since there is not even half an ounce of refined sugar in these their sweetness comes from the coconut and blueberries respectfully. If you find they are not to your sweet tooth liking then simply swap the blueberries for organic dark chocolate chips (but half the weight).

Ingredients

  • 4oz Ground almond
  • 5 Eggs
  • 5oz Blueberries
  • 2oz Desiccated coconut
  • 2oz Chopped mixed nuts
  • 1oz Flaxseed mixture
  • 2oz Organic butter
  • Organic vanilla essence or 1 vanilla pod

Directions

  • Pre-heat a fan assisted oven to 170°c.
  • Measure and mix all the dry ingredients together. Chop the butter into the mixture and (with cool fingers) rub into the ingredients until it forms a rough paste.
  • Whisk the eggs and add the vanilla essence (I added 3 teaspoons, but I think it depends on brand and personal preference. I actually think I could have added more) or if using a vanilla pod, remove the seeds and blend into the mixture.
  • Gradually add the egg to the mixture and blend together with a spatula.
  • Add the washed blueberries and mix well.
  • Divide mixture between 9 cupcake cases.
  • place tray in the middle of the oven and allow to cook for 30 minutes or until risen, oozing blueberry, and a golden brown colour.

ENJOY! JL x
