    Banana bread with a twist – gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free options

    We love bananas and we always have some on the kitchen counter – and I often turn some of them into delicious banana bread! I have several recipes I use. This one is my favourite because it’s yummy and SO quick to make. It also has chocolate chips in it, and for a chocolate lover, this is a great twist! So I thought I’d share the recipe with you. One more thing before I proceed about this banana bread recipe: you can make it with the kids as it’s not too messy and they will love the result you can easily make it gluten-free, sugar-free and even dairy-free/vegan if you…

    Chocolate birthday cake – free from gluten and sugar

    I love chocolate. My kids love chocolate. And I don’t think I had any influence, chocolate is simply yummy! Therefore we cook a lot of chocolate muffins and treats. On their birthday they ask for chocolate cake (what a surprise, right?). I remember one time trying to make a strawberry cake. Complete failure, the cake looked like a sad volcano. Never tried since. That is until last summer when my daughter turned three. She asked for a chocolate birthday cake. And you can’t refuse a 3-year-old on her birthday, can you?

    Chocolate muffins – dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free

    This post may contain affiliate links (read more). Friday, just as I was about to go to bed, I found out that it had been Chocolate Day. Yes, that’s right, the 7th of July is Chocolate Day! I never knew this! “What kind of chocolate fan am I?” I thought to myself. Hardly a day goes by without me eating something with cocoa. It might be milk with xylitol and cocoa, sugar-free hazelnut and chocolate spread or sugar-free chocolate (you might remember from this post that we are in the process of reducing our sugar intake). Being a chocolate fan (no, not addicted, just the usual fan!), I would have…

    Raw coconut and chocolate bars (Bounty-like)

    As you might already know, I decided to reduce my sugar intake. I want to share with you a nutritious recipe that I discovered last week, written down by me on a piece of paper (can’t remember when or from where). We love Bounty chocolate bars, but they are very high in sugars: 48.2% sugars, meaning, as per their ingredients list, sugar, glucose syrup and lactose. Therefore I was more than happy when I found this recipe in a long-forgotten notebook. This meant we could still enjoy the coconut and chocolate bars. In addition, I could use the cashew pulp that is left after I making cashew milk for the…
