Beetroot Carrot Muffins

Never knew it tasted so good! I must have added a bunch of stuff to make up for the bitter after taste since it was my first time using real beetroot and getting my hands coloured..

I didn't realised I was also using the same ingredients from this other surprised carrot blueberry muffin recipe too. I guess I do love that combo of sweet carrots and refreshing apples together with a tinge of sweet potato to fill one's tummy sweetly and gracefully.

I pretty much dumped everything in and was relying on my vision to see how thick the texture is with the flour estimation. I did ran out of Gluten free flour so added a touch of coconut flour which was just right (can't taste it for a change).

The strong taste is definitely the beetroot. But it's supported by the other goodness of natural sweet carrots, apples, raisins and sweet potato.

Makes 6 muffins


Chocolate Spinach Pancakes

You got it right, there are hidden spinach in this pancake!

I'm amazed how blenders can liquify things so much nobody knows unless they are sensitive to the taste. Then again it can always be overpowered by chocolate powder muahaha

Anything to get my kiddo to eat...

Original recipe here, real simple! No oil, gluten free too!

Made about 8 pancakes for me with a 1/3 cup

Vegetarian Nuggets round 2

This time with a little more structure and prediction hahaha.

Well, I got carried away by trying to add one more vege to the mince but the bowl was too full and I didn't want to go beyond the tray, and squares were easier to semi circle.

Exactly the same process as my previous post but I change the veges instead.

 photo IMG_20170319_212107_zpstbjumtdd.jpg 

This time I used:

  • 2 x Carrots (for sweetness)
  • 2 x Sweet potatoes (for sweetness)
  • 1 x Broccoli
  • A bag of Long Beans (About 350 grams)
  • A bag of Brussel Sprouts
  • Spinach steamed by my MIL
  • A spoonful of LSA

Made 90 nuggets


Sweet Potato Banana Bites

I love the way the title was written and yes I had leftover sweet potatoes again so was wondering what to do with it.

 photo IMG_20170318_092826_zpsjvklk2y9.jpg

Looks kinds 'bland' but it does tastes edible lol. I didn't put any oil, and should have dropped in some raisins or something. Oh well, it's just bites for li'l E to have as snacks.

Should have coated with egg wash....

Doesn't look appetizing but tastes good~~

Makes 6 cupcakes (note this is different to muffin trays as the depth of the cups are smaller)


Surprise Carrot blueberry muffins

I actually have no idea what to call it to be honest but a whole portion of it was made of carrots and blueberries. Plus other sweet natural fruit and vege too.

You can literally eat this raw without the eggs and flour lol

 photo IMG_20170315_212128_zpskt46qclb.jpg

No baking powder, so I can literally pour extra over each tray!

It turned out so delicious my son loved it! Felt really strong in the coconut just coz I added a tad bit too much flour again. All good, it's so nutritious, gluten free and dairy to the point that I am happy to eat it, also moist too! yay.

Will see how I can remember how the ingredients were coz it was all estimated!

Makes 6 big muffins


Grain Free Apple Muffins

Beside it sticking to the paper, it does taste quite crumbly nicer off the oven. Probably needing butter or olive oil with salt to add moisture and it doesn't have a crumbly top.

The pain about gluten and dairy free food is retaining the added moisture, which drives me to dig further into recipes and the science behind things. Of course my little kid doesn't mind it for now, but my aim is to get everyone liking it and be proud to say that there wasn't any dairy involved.

Anyway, I loved how the apple stew turned out! Should have made apple crumble instead lol.

The journey continues~!

Till then, it makes 6

Vegetarian Nuggets

It's alot of work, but it's so worth it making it delicious, especially with superfood.

 I pretty much followed the process in the video but changed the ingredients instead, taking the chance to use chicken peas as a form of sticky ingredient to avoid too much carbs and made sure the wet ingredients are dried out (which it did since I blend it while it's hot)

The longest process was probably blending, coz I had to use a tiny coffee grinder

Chickpeas and spinach

Rolling them out before dipping

Option to put it in the freezer or bake them

 photo IMG_20170305_015418_zpsi0vjnq1k.jpg

Add coconut oil coat when bake

This ingredient made about 50 pieces easily I think depending on the size but its about half an ice cream scoop per piece
