Gluten free yoghurt pancakes, perfect for upcoming pancake day.





Just made these amazing fluffy pancakes yesterday and today my hubby asked me to make them again. Looks like someone is celebrating pancake day few days before.

These are super easy to make and soooooooo yummy. Perfect for upcoming pancake day.
So why not to give it a try? 





Ingredients:

2 cups of gluten free flour 
1 egg (I use organic eggs)
500ml greek yoghurt ( used my own, home made recipe is here)
1/2 tsp gluten free bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp of honey or any other sweetener

Mix all ingredients with your hand mixer, if your mixture is super thick add some almond milk, but don't make it to runny. 
Fry for 2 min on each side on a medium hot pan.
Use *coconut oil for frying ( gives that extra flavour for  your pancakes)



For the jam I used my favourite fruits, blueberries. I used blueberries all the way from Chile.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidant,fibre and vitamin  C, helping to reduce heart disease

For the jam (200ml jar) you will need:

1 cup of Chilean blueberries 
1 lemon, juice
1 tsp of honey ( or other sweetener)
2 tsp  chia seeds 
1 tbsp coconut oil

In the pan, on low-medium heat melt coconut oil. Add blueberries, lemon juice, sweetener,blueberry powder and simmer for 10 min. Add chia seeds, simmer for couple of minutes, take the pot from the cooker and let the chia seeds to absorb the juices. 

Serve hot or cold, alone or with cream. 
Just do what makes you happy.

Lunch under 30 minutes





End of the week, your fridge is empty, all you have is  2, 3 ingredients left and you have to make a meal to nourish your body for the rest of the day.

I often have one or two potatoes sitting in the veg basket for days, and today was the day when I was so happy to see them there. I manage to create super delicious and quick meal. 
Some of you might think that potatoes are bad, cos their GI index is high. I agree, eating potatoes every day, 3 times a day is not advised but one a while why not, and please remember they are packed  in vitamins and minerals.




The portion serves one:

2-3 small potatoes
4 mushrooms
1 organic egg
2 tbsp of coconut oil 
pinch of himalayan salt
black pepper





Directions:

1. Cut potatoes into small cubes, melt 1 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil and fry potatoes for 15-20 min ( depends on potatoes), remember to be careful and mix them often. Add spices if you want :) taste amazing with saffron.
2. Fry mushrooms in the remaining coconut oil until brownish in colour.
3. Fry egg as you like it ( or poach it).

Enjoy!

Chocolate chip waffles




These are the best eaten hot. With the melted chocolate chips melting inside and eating amazing gooey inside (yummy).
My hubby had them with home made nutella spread and me, just plain still amazing.

In that recipe I used new Aduna super cacao powder.  
I don't know if you heard, Aduna's cacao powder is full of health benefits:

The health and beauty benefits of cacao have long been advocated but have never been clinically proven - until now.
Aduna Super-Cacao is the first cacao powder with a heart health claim approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). It is made from especially-selected, gently-roasted high-flavanol beans. Flavanols are a plant-based antioxidant which help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels.
Aduna Super-Cacao contains 8x the flavanol content of regular cacao, supporting normal blood flow. Cacao flavanols contribute to:
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Elasticity of arteries
  • Healthy blood circulation (great for people suffering from cold hands and feet!)
It is also jam-packed with antioxidants and has been clinically proven to improve skin-hydration, making it a beauty must-have. In this article we explore the powerful health and beauty benefits of Aduna Super-Cacao Powder. ( info from Aduna website)



So lets get cooking.

I have big waffle maker and made 3 waffles using measurements below.

1 cup of gluten free flour (or your favourite one)
1 egg
1/2 baking powder (i used gluten free)
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 cup of almond milk
1/2 chocolate chips


Mix all ingredients well until combined, and bake in the waffle maker until deliciously brown.

Enjoy!

Home made yoghurt+ Von Shef yoghurt maker review






Food producers convince us that their products are 100% healthy. natural without enhancers and chemistry (are you actually checking every single label?). But rather than overpay in supermarkets try to do the same yogurt. Why? Because it's a simple , quick (specially when using Von Shef yoghurt maker), and you are sure that yogurt made by you is 100% organic!

Before Christmas I was approached by Gabrielle from Domu, online shop with many amazing kitchen and home products. I was really keen on trying Von Shef yoghurt maker. Since I do my own plant milk, why not to try make my own yogurts (yummmmm).



And..... I totally love it! No more shop bought yoghurt for me.
This little machine is super easy to use and is very affordable.

Almost forgot to mention, that on top of selling supper handy kitchen stuff Domu created Health Kick Hub with plenty of healthy recipes, tips and articles.


Ok so a little about my new Von Shef yoghurt maker.

This yoghurt maker isn't to big and fits perfectly in my super small kitchen. 
At once you can make 1.5liters of home made yoghurt, and that I am sure will last you for a very long time. My first time was in the fridge for 5 days and was still yummy.

It took me a while to perfect the recipe but... now it's much better than for the first time.

So here is the recipe

1.5l of milk of your choice
bacteria cultures ( use as advised on the package) 
or use 5 tbsp of organic natural yoghurt with bacteria cultures




1. Keep milk in room temperature.
2. Add the bacteria cultures, mix well, and pour into 7 little containers. 
2a.When using organic yoghurt. Add 5 tbsp to warm milk, mix well and repeat step 3 and 4.
3. Set temperature on the yoghurt maker between 45-50C and timer 8h-10h.
4. Press start and wait patiently for the delicious yoghurt.


Enjoy it with your favourite toppings.


I hope that you will enjoy this yoghurt maker as much as me.

PS. Remember to visit Health Kick Hub for healthy recipes.

Christmas is just around the corner.
Today I am sharing with you delicious chrismas warming recipe.
Delicious, full of christmas flavours and super easy to make.

1/2 cup of ricotta cheese
2 cups gluten free oats ( blended to powdery consistency)
1 cup of oat milk

I have to admit that I never tried oat milk before, but I am really impressed about the taste and the quality of Alpo milk. This milk is low in saturated fats, rich in fibre and no hidden sugars.
I usually make my own milk, but weeks like this, when I am super busy and rarely have time to cook, this is a great alternative for me.

Gingerbread cookies GF/ Bezglutenowe pierniczki




My mums gingerbread cookies are the best! Full of honey, spices, perfectly baked, and that fantastic taste. My mum usually makes gingerbread cookies 2-3 weeks before Christmas but this year we both left it until now.
This year for me its pretty amazing. We will spent first Christmas as married couple and.... together. Before Mr M had to work or I went to Poland to spend it with my parents.
But anyway, lets get back to the subject.

This recipe is very easy to make. The original recipe is for double the ingredients but I am sure that you don't need to make over 100 cookies :).




2 eggs ( for vegan option use vegan eggs)
3 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp cloves powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp cacao powder
2 tsp baking powder ( I used gluten free)
100gr gr coconut sugar (powdered)
150 gr honey/coconut nectar
125gr organic butter
pinch of salt


Method:
1. In a small cooking pan, on very small heat melt butter with honey.
2. All dry ingredients mix in  big bowl, add eggs, mix and knead to obtain a smooth dough.
3. Roll out the dough to 4 mm thickness, dusting with a small amount of flour - just enough so the dough don't stick to the board.
4. Cut your cookies.
5.Bake for 8 min in 180 C.


If your dough is to dry, add 1 tbsp spoon of water or plant milk at the time. If dough is to sticky add some more flour.
