Carrot Cake Muffins for Breakfast…or anytime

Who says you can’t have cake for breakfast… not me! I find that cakes made with just almond flour or mixed with coconut flour turn out dry, heavy, flat and the texture is just not the best. I’ve started halving the almond flour and replacing that half with fibre flour. The texture is nicer, they’re…

Cookies Mmmmmm!

I love cookies, or biscuits as we call them in the UK. There are 2 major things that can kick me off the wagon and that is biscuits and cake. So to keep myself on track I have to find substitutes. If I don’t I can binge on the sugary ones, and by binge I…

This is based around Southern Indian cooking which widely uses fennel in the spice mix, giving the chicken a unique flavour. You can use a CrispLid, Air fryer, or the BBQ to cook these.

Surprisingly enough it worked. Keto Tahini and Maple Blondies Ice Cream Ingredients 3 eggs 125ml/1/2 cup Sugar free Maple Syrup, I…
