My Little Pillow Puff Pickelets - Wheat/Gluten/Dairy/Grain Free

I've found the MOST amazing recipe, like ever!

It's amazing for a few reasons - not limited to its deliciousness taste, the fact that there is no added sugar, its soft pillowy cloud-like texture, gluten free, dairy free, grain free (just about everything free) to name a few exceptional reasons, but mostly because... [pause here for emphasis]... it has only two ingredients. You heard me, Sunshine... Only. Two. Ingredients. (Gasp?!)

I'll give you a moment to compose yourself while you let that little sentence sink in!

I know, I couldn't believe it either. My super pal, Claire, sent it to a bunch of us to try it because she knows how hungry we all are, all the time. So I tried it out, skeptically I might add, and did it blow my socks off? Yessiree!

Sadly, she couldn't remember where she found the recipe. I wanted to sing praise and thank that clever soul for creating such a simple and heavenly recipe for us, and then sharing it, too. (If that clever soul happens to come across my Now-World-Famous-Blog *chuckle, chuckle, snort snort*, I give you full creds and big-ups for this, my friend. I take none of the credit. I only feel it is my duty to also pay it forward and spread the love).

So, for you, Leigh with your love of all things sweet and little, and Nicole because you have absolutely no time/patience for measuring cups or folding egg whites with three children. And for Sarah and Claire who are the purists that only feed their Buttercup-Little-Ones the simplest of wholefoods... and for Mumsy who, at the moment, cant swing a cat in her tiny kitchen... and, of course, all my other Lovelies out there who have allergies, or don't have time, or even ingredients for that matter... with love, from me to you. 

No more dilly-dallying about or keeping you in suspense, here it is... 

My Two Ingredient Pillow Puff Pickelets 
(Thank you, again, Claire)
  • 2  Bananas, medium size
  • 3  Eggs
  • 2  shakes of Ground Cinnamon - optional (yes this is technically a third ingredient, but I sneaked it in anyway... Or you could add a teaspoon of vanilla extract, if you were feeling a little rebellious)

  • Put it all in a bowl and mix (I use my stick/immersion blender, it blitzes it into a velvety smooth batter in three seconds)
  • As with normal crumpets, pour four tablespoons of batter into a very well greased and heated pan. 
  • Cook on medium heat until bubbles form and flip to cook the other side.
  • Transfer to a warm plate and repeat until batter is finished. (I used a non-stick spray after each batch)
  • Devour - makes about 20.
I served it for breakfast with sliced pear (I poached my woody and tart pear in a little sugar water to soften) and some lactose free yoghurt, and a drizzle of honey... 

I'm embarrassed to say that we ate them all before taking any more pictures... So sorry, it was such a quick recipe (to make and eat) that I only have one picture...

Much love, and happy nibbling

My Happy Tummy Camel Milk Smoothie

The eternal search for ultimate health, vibrant energy and self-healing has recently led me to the most interesting article I've read in a while. It’s an article about the amazing health benefits of CAMEL MILK! Yes… camel milk. Ta-daaaaaaa! I first read about it here on Wellness Mamma's blog, and then found a more scientific article with studies and all the science behind it here… but the summarised version goes like this… Proven studies show that the benefits of regularly drinking camel milk have been seen to treat, if not cure, a number of ailments and diseases, namely: Autism (What? Really?)Auto-immune diseases (like rheumatoid arthritis)Hepatitis-CDiabetesEven in the treatment of several cancers (whoa) and AIDS.
And boasting beneficial Immune boosting properties, just to name a few… This was a particularly interesting and relevant excerpt I found at “Not only is camel milk well-received by people who have milk allergies or an intole…

I Pimped my CHAI - Nourishingly Warm and Creamy Chai Tea

Sugar Free + LCHF (With a Dairy Free Option)

It’s cold outside… nay… Its freakin’ freezing outside (well by Cape Town standards anyway) and I want warm stuff - on me, around me and definitely IN me!
Enter: my warming and very creamy, dreamy Chai Tea.

I’ve never really been one for flavoured or herbal teas. I like Rooibos tea, served black, and that’s it. And I drink loads of hot water with fresh lemon, and sometimes a sliver of ginger in, too. Oh, and of course, the best coffee I can afford made ‘My Way’: creamed with an egg and butter. You remember? It’s the ONLY way I make it now, no milk needed.
But then last week, I was out with a friend, and I smelt it… the aroma wafted alluringly my way, and I almost dunked my entire nose in my dear friend’s steaming mug of milky spice. It was love at first waft. She let me have a sip… well, the flavours and scents of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom made me feel positively drunk. Masala Intoxication! How divine. I wanna BATH in this stuff!

Itty Bitty Chocolate Mini Cakes - in a cup - in 60 seconds!

Here's my little itty-bitty chocolate cake, baked in a cup, and in 60 seconds!

Nut-free. Gluten-free. Grain-free. Sugar-free. Low-carb. Dairy free options.
Afternoon tea-and-cake just got REAL, people. Real quick. Real easy. And Real healthy too. You cant even call this a cheat meal (although it tastes like a sneaky, naughty cheat) because it’s all within the rules of eating low carb, gluten free, sugar free and therefore healthy, right?)

This makes four ½ cup ramekins. It’s coconut flour based (although not 'coconutty' in flavour at all) and quite filling. I’ve been known to make a bigger one for me (all in the name of science, of course) and, well, let’s just say my eyes were bigger than my tummy. For an afternoon snack, with an espresso or cup of tea, a small ramekin is perfect (and then you have one left for tomorrow, and the next day too).
Now, because I made these on a random Monday afternoon after picking up my brood from gymnastics, I didn’t have the time, nor inclinat…
