Carrot cake

Auntie Loulla’s Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

A delicious carrot cake, lighter than most because it's made with sunflower oil rather than butter, it's rich with the flavour of spices and topped with a creamy frosting: perfect with a cup of tea!
chocolate muffins

Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Muffins

Any sweets treats that are acceptable to eat at breakfast are a winner in my eyes. Muffins are one of my favourite foods - especially when served straight out of the oven, hot, fluffy and oh so good. And nothing makes me happier than baking with my kids, particularly my 5 year old Oliver who adores cooking and baking.

Gluten-Free Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

I've blogged a variation of these cookies before-Oat Coconut Cookies but I've adapted my recipe this time as I love experimenting and I've added vanilla pods, maple syrup and dark chocolate chips this time!

gluten-free chocolate brownies

Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate, Coconut and Avocado Brownies

We're gluten-free monsters here, the lot of us, as are many of you too it seems, be it because of allergies, or simply to lead a healthier lifestyle-wheat really isn't terribly good for any of us really. So if you fancy enjoying a sweet treat without the wheat (I know, poetic huh), do check these bad boys out!

chocolate cupcakes

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

When in doubt, the kids are ill or you just need a distraction technique, bake. OK maybe the latter will result in obese kids so aim for colouring in first but a bit of bun making is always fun and as my boys were under the weather this weekend, we got to baking these easy peasy chocolate buns/cupcakes. We don't like them too sweet so only used 40g of sugar.

Something We Made Earlier…

My husband (and quite possibly my toddler's) take on nesting is involving baking-a lot of baking, like every evening this week. I'm not complaining, although my thighs might be when I finally get back on the treadmill post baby.
