Almost Vegan Muffins

Posted by Rebecca Angell

Ingredients you will need:

  • 2 cups oates
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence / extract
  • 2 bananas - mashed
  • 1 apple - peeled then grated
  • 1 pear - peeled then grated
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • soy milk OR milk of your choice

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees celcius

Step 2: Combine all ingredients, leaving out lemon juice, bicarb soda and milk. Mix well

Step 3: Add bicarb soda and then lemon juice on top.  It will start to fizz, this is the lemon juice activating the bicarb.  This is normal and acts as the raising agent for the muffins. Mix well.

Step 4: Add milk in 1/2 cup increments stirring each time.  Continue to add milk until you have a cake batter consistency

Step 5: Line muffin tray with patty cases and fill.

Step 6: Bake for approx 20 mins or until skewer comes out clean

Note: I have sprinkled desiccated coconut on top of my muffins prior to baking

Posted by Rebecca Angell in Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • 100grm dark chocolate (highest cocoa percentage you can get)

Step 1: Wash strawberries and allow to dry on paper-towel

Step 2: In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in 30 second increments so you don't burn the chocolate. Stir between each increment

Step 3: Line a tray with baking paper

Step 4: Pat strawberries dry one last time and dip into chocolate.  Place on lined tray and fridge.

Step 5: Once chocolate has set, transfer strawberries to container and place in freezer

*It is important to purchase the best quality chocolate you can afford as well as the highest cocoa percentage you can handle.  

To add more goodness, finely chop dry roasted almonds then roll strawberry in the nuts while the chocolate is still wet.  This is such a lovely treat for mum especially coming into Summer.  These treats won't ruin your hard work exercising or your healthy eating...too much :)
