Recipe makes 12 large muffins OR 12 medium and 12 mini muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups Zentrofan 7 grain flour

  • 1 c organic coconut sugar

  • 3 tsp baking powder (GF if you have it)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp himalayan sea salt

  • 3 c oob bananas (defrosted and mashed)

  • 1/3 c olive oil

  • 1 ¼ c unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla bean paste juice of half a lemon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees fanbake. Oil or line muffin trays.

  2. Mix together dry ingredients.

  3. Mash the bananas thoroughly. Mix together with remaining wet ingredients.

  4. Add the wet and dry ingredients together and combine, then add the blueberries and walnuts – break the walnuts into small pieces .

  5. Pour into muffin trays.

  6. Cook for 18 – 22 minutes.

NB:

Zentrofan flour has been air milled without heat to protect the nutrients. The 7 grain version is only 60% wheat, with added rye, barley, oat, millet, rice and corn flours to reduce the gluten and add nutrients. You could substitute this for any flour you prefer.

You could use any non-dairy milk if you don’t have almond milk.

I particularly like walnuts in this recipe but you could use any type of nuts – sliced almonds work well – or keep them nut free (remember to use a different type of milk if these need to be nut free). You could even use dairy free dark chocolate chips - Libby x

    raspberry choc jelly

    Seriously delicious and decadent. It is kind of like a healthy Turkish Delight rip-off. It is sugar free, gut loving and absolutely nutrient dense. They make the perfect after dinner treat for guests or just yourself, or a quick snack in the morning or afternoons. 


    RASPBERRY JELLY

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 cup thawed organic raspberries (if there is juice from the raspberries from thawing, do not discard and just include it with the mix as it will intensify the flavour) I use the brand oob organic 
    • 2 1/2 cups filtered water 
    • 1 lemon juice
    • 2 tsp vanilla essence 
    • 3 Tbsp gelatin
    • 1 tbsp of your choice of sweetener, 10-15 drops liquid stevia, or monk fruit or Lakanto added to taste 

    METHOD

    1. Blend 2 cups of the water with the raspberries on high for at least one minute. If using a granulated sweetener, add to this mix as well and blend with the raspberries. 

    2. Using a strainer or a muslin cloth, pour the blended mix through and into another bowl and discard the seeds. Keep the strained mix reserved just for a moment. 

    3. Combine the gelatine and the remaining 1/2 cup of water to 'bloom' the gelatine. This means that the gelatine will absorb the water and become a thick mass. 

    4. In either your Thermomix or a low heated saucepan, add the gelatine mix and just a splash of the strained raspberry mix to heat through the gelatine so it dissolves/melts. Continue to stir through until well combined which will not take long. We are only adding a splash of the raspberry mix because we want to keep the nutrients in the raspberries in tact, for example heat destroys vitamin C. 

    5. Remove from the heat, and pour the gelatine mix into the remaining raspberry mix along with all of the remaining ingredients. Stir until fully combined, have a little taste and decide whether you want to add a little more lemon or sweetness.

    6. Pour the mix into a tin or container lined with baking paper, and place in the fridge to set. This will take a couple of hours.


    CHOCOLATE

    INGREDIENTS

    • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
    • 2 Tbsp ghee (or coconut oil if required, though ghee tastes amazing with this!)
    • Pinch of salt
    • 10 drops of liquid stevia, 1 Tbsp of honey, maple syrup, or Lakanto or monk fruit sweetener to taste

    METHOD

    1. In a low heated saucepan, combine all ingredients and stir till everything is mixed though well. 

    2. Allow to cool just slightly, a little warmth is okay, though we don't want to melt the raspberry jelly!

    3. Once the jelly has set, pour the chocolate over the top so it forms a thin layer. 

    4. Place in the fridge to set, or the freezer for 10 minutes if you're impatient!  

    5. To serve, remove from the fridge and slice carefully to ensure you don't crack the chocolate. Enjoy with a smile!

    life changing pancakes

    By Sheridan from Sheridan Joy

    Sheridan Joy Austin is a speaker, nutrition consultant, recipe creator and writer. She is a qualified holistic Nutritionist and a certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) practitioner, whereby she uses food as medicine to support health and vitality. Follow her journey via her blog at www.sheridanjoy.com or on Instagram @sheridanjoyaustin

    Ingredients

    This makes roughly 15 small to medium sized pancakes. 

    • 1/2 cup green banana flour
    • 1/4 cup slippery elm - loosely packed 
    • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or 1 1/4 cup for thicker pancakes) 
    • 3 pastured eggs (4 if the mix is too thick or breaking apart when trying to flip) 
    • 2 tsp vanilla essence or 1 vanilla pod scraped
    • Pinch of salt

    NOTE: I used 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup coconut cream to form my coconut milk. I use the Ayam brand of coconut cream. 

    Method

    1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl using a fork or whisk, ensuring there are no dry parts remaining. 
    2. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
    3. In a medium to high heated pan with a splash of coconut oil or ghee, slowly pour the mix into small pancakes. 
    4. Wait until bubbles come through the pancake, and then test to see if it can be flipped by wiggling your spatula under the pancake gently. If it breaks apart, let it sit there for a little longer as when it is ready you will be able to flip easily.
    5. Flip, and then cook evenly on the other side. 
    6. Reserve on a large plate, and then continue cooking the rest. 

    Note: I have tested this mix a few times, so if followed correctly it shouldn't be an issue, though if it is not binding well together, you may need to let the mix sit there for a little longer to thicken some more, or if it still does not work for you, then add another egg to ensure it binds even better. 

    Serve with your choice of deliciousness, though I love probiotic rich coconut yogurt and homemade blueberry jam!

              5. Pour the batter into the tin / muffin holes and dot in the mango cubes, pressing them down lightly with a spoon.
              6. Bake for approximately 40 minutes if making a cake (or 25-30 minutes if making cupcakes) or until golden in colour, springy to the touch and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow the cake/s to cool for around 10 minutes before turning onto a cooling rack.
              7. Meanwhile, make the icing. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar together until smooth, then gradually add the cream cheese, followed by the vanilla. The icing should be smooth, creamy and thick. Stir through the mint powder at the end.
              8. Once the cake is cool ice the top of the cake with the icing (or pipe onto cupcakes) and decorate with fresh mint and edible gold leaf.
              9. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
