Healthier Sweet Zucchini Muffins Recipe

I've modified the recipe I posted previously, added more zucchini and reduced the amount of sugar, so it's healthier and the results are so much better! I'm really pleased with the way these turned out. Better tasting and better for you! Now that's my kind of dessert! Actually, you could eat these muffins any time… they make a good snack (perfect for kid's lunch boxes – get some extra vegies into them without them realizing), if you're like me and can't eat a lot first thing in the morning they are lovely for breakfast with your morning coffee or tea. So without further ado, here's the recipe… Read more »

While I'm trying to cut back on sweets and baked goods, occasionally I still indulge in something sweet. When I do, I figure it might as well be with something that has some beneficial ingredients as well. We have an unbelievable amount of zucchini (courgette) growing in the garden at the moment, so naturally zucchini bread sprang to mind.

Next time I make these I'll add lots more zucchini, I think the recipe can handle it. Read more »

I've been itching to try this recipe since last week when I found Kalyn's Kitchen Blog and the recipe for these yummy looking, South Beach Diet Phase I compliant Egg Muffins. I even went out and bought one of those blissfully-easy-to-use silicone muffin trays.

We went to the local vegie shop yesterday and I got a tray of free range eggs, in anticipation of making this recipe. Well, today was the day! Let me tell you, they don't disappoint! Read more »

When I first saw this recipe I couldn't imagine it making a nice apple crumble. I thought the crockpot would turn it all into a apple porridge type mush. But my curiosity got the best of me before too long and I gave it a try. I was delighted to find that you can make a beautiful apple crumble in a crockpot! The crumble comes out crisp and crumbly, the apples are cooked beautifully, and since you're cooking in a crockpot it couldn't be easier. Read more »

You can easily make your own baking powder. Often commercially bought baking powder has wheat gluten in it. This recipe is gluten free, wheat free, and very easy to make using ingredients that should be readily available at your grocery store. It may be hard to find gluten-free baking powder in the store, or you may end up paying more for it. But it's so quick, inexpensive and simple to buy these 3 ingredients (you may already have some of them in your kitchen), and make your own. So if you want baking powder that's vegan and gluten-free, here's your recipe… Read more »
