I love muffins in any form, sweet or savoury, but I always seem to gravitate towards berry muffins. So I’ve come up with a guilt free version that even has the kids’ seal of approval. They are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free so you can enjoy them for breakfast or any time of the day. Ingredients: 1 cup almond meal 1/2 cup tapioca flour 2 eggs 2...

Savoury muffins are so versatile and easy to make. I usually make a batch on a Sunday to have on hand for the week, adding whatever veges I have on hand. These gluten free muffins are packed with protein so they are a great option for breakfast. Keep them in the fridge up to 5 days and reheat when you need a satisfying snack. My kids like them too as the spinach is...

Most of the store bought granola is high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils. When you make it yourself, you know exactly what you’re putting into it. This granola is so simple...

My kids love apple and cinnamon muffins, especially the sugar filled ones from the local cafe. They’re my harshest critics and can spot anything that tastes remotely healthy. I’ve managed to trick them with these muffins. They haven’t figured out that they’re sugar and gluten free  (and I’m not about to tell them).    ...
