Breakfast waffles

My grandmother’s waffle maker has been left unused for far too long. As I’m finally getting a bit more time to myself for the next 6 months, I decided today was waffles for breakfast. I found an amazing recipe on Oh My Pie’s lovely website, and tweaked it a little to adapt it for my and my son’s higher protein needs. So here it is!

Ingredients (this makes around 6 waffles in a standard waffle maker)

120g buckwheat or rice flour

170g any milk

1 egg

1 grated apple

30g raw cane sugar

1 tsp gingerbread spice

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt


This couldn’t be easier.

Heat up your waffle maker before you start so it’s nice and hot.

Mix all of the ingredients for the waffles together.

With an ice cream spoon, pour dollops of the waffle mixture onto the waffle maker and bake till they’re quite hard and browned a bit.


Foolproof gluten and dairy free pancakes

After a tough week for both myself and my boy, we both felt this Sunday deserved celebrating. Hence pancakes! This is such an easy recipe, and very healthy for your bowel movement, because it includes psyllium husk which regulates your bowel. You’re welcome!


150g buckwheat or rice flour

1tsp psyllium husk (you can substitute with xanthan but that won’t give you any health benefits)

400ml any milk

2 organic eggs

Pinch of salt

1 tsp raw cane sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

Coconut oil for baking


Mix all ingredients well. If the mix is very thick, add a little bit more milk. The psyllium keeps it all together.

Bake your pancakes. Heat the coconut oil in a pan and allow the pan to heat up well before adding the pancake batter. Enjoy with a fruit salad and granola for a healthy effect!

Superquick pancake… Cake

Been looking for some new stuff to watch on Netflix and decided on Nadiya Hussein’s looovely and chill programme Time to Eat. Love most of the recipes but the pancake cake seemed like an excellent idea. So obvs I wanted to make it gluten and lactose free…


150g buckwheat or rice flour

50g sugar or substitute

1 tsp psyllium

1 tbsp olive oil

Sprinkle of salt

300ml milk of any kind

2 eggs

About 150g jam

100g peanut butter


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Mix up all the ingredients apart from the ham and peanut butter, and pour in an oiled cake tin.

Put dollops of jam and peanut butter on top and mix them up gently through the batter.

Bake for 25-30 mins. Enjoy !
