Chocolate Chia PuddingWould you like chocolate for breakfast? This chocolate chia pudding combines nutrient-packed chia seeds with antioxidant-rich cacao and natural sweetness as well as plant-based milk. It's a delicious and fibre-rich start to the day and can be topped with sliced banana, fresh berries or some coconut chips. Delicious!
Ginger Tigernut CookiesTigernuts are actually not a nut at all but a starchy vegetable and a source of resistant starch. These cookies have a lot going for them nutritionally and have a fantastically scrumptious gingery taste.
Roasted Butternut Squash FalafelThese root vegetable falafels are sweet and nourishing and delicious! Made with roasted butternut squash, some gram flour and some chickpeas with seasoning, they're simple to make for younger family members too!
Mexican Beef TacosThis delicious Mexican Taco recipe is easy to make in the Instant Pot. It's stacked full of flavour from the base of onions, celery, carrots, garlic and chilli through to the pops of sweetness from the sweetcorn and pineapple. This family-friendly recipe is fun to eat as you have to make up your own tacos with additions - sour cream, guacamole, salsa and cheese.
Claire’s Cacao and Chia AmazeballsFor Claire, Lent has always been an important part of the calendar. She has memories of her Grandma Ann immersed in the church community and according to Claire "she loved to bake, yet she always fasted from cakes, biscuits and the “sweet stuff” for 40 days and 40 nights during the Lenten period". These 100% homemade and 100% natural energy balls are great if you would like to remove refined sugar from your diet or just have less of it but still gain that 'sweet kick' in your day. The recipe below, Cacao and Chia, is one that is so easy to make for anyone to enjoy. To find out more visit: https://www.clairesamazeballs.com/
Ginger Banana BreadA new take on an old Lunchbox Doctor recipe. For those that love the banana bread but want a slightly different (more exotic!) flavour here's a ginger flavoured version.
Breakfast SliceSome mornings are just too busy for anything other than a "grab and go" style breakfast. I know this from experience as these breakfast slices have been munched by my 15 year old many a time on the way to school.
Protein FlapjackFlapjacks are a favourite for many. They're a great way to enjoy wholegrain oats and in this recipe, the oats are joined by protein-rich seeds to provide longer-lasting energy.
