Apple, almond and coconut cake.
It’s - gluten free, soy free, dairy free, corn free and sugar free! Blimey. It’s made using ground almonds, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla, agave and eggs whipped up to create the volume. Then you pour the mix in to your tin and arrange apple slices, core side down, in a swirl from the outside right to the centre, topping with slivered almonds and shredded coconut. It’s a bit fiddly but very tasty! :)

Apple, cinnamon and sultana tart from Patisserie Valerie, Sheffield.
I’ve only ever ogled the pastires and cakes from outside the window of Patisserie Valerie before - but I decided to treat myself today. Unfortunately all it says on the counter is “Apple Tart” not “beware - filled with sultanas!” so I had to pick all of those out (raisins & sultanas are the devil’s food), but other than that it was scrumptious. :3
Oatmeal with stewed apple and blackberries, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup.
(Oats - 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp ground flaxseed.)
Braeburn apple slices with almond butter.
I know, I know… that looks like a tiny amount of almond butter. Occasionally fingers accidentally fall in the almond butter and you have to lick it off. Then this process repeats. Until you realize now there’s hardly any left for your apple. These things just happen sometimes. You know how it is.
Breakfast today… a brown rice cake with almond butter and chia seeds and a sliced apple.
I really wasn’t very hungry this morning, and for some reason I haven’t felt hungry for about a week or so now. I’m sure that will soon change! (Despite not having hunger pangs, and aside from this morning, I have been eating normally, dw.)
21 Day Cleanse - “Meal” 2, Day 1.
A crisp, braeburn apple.
I made roasted butternut squash and apple soup for lunch today with homemade herbed croutons, and oh my goodness was itgood.
I wasn’t sure the apple would work, but it added a lovely sweetness. I also didn’t have enough squash so threw in half a sweet potato - it didn’t mess with the flavours and still tasted delightful! The recipe called for 1 butternut squash, 2 apples, 1 onion, 32 oz. stock (it said chicken, I used gluten free veggie), olive oil for roasting, s&p, 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
For the croutons I roughly cut up some squares out of slightly stale tiger bread, threw them in the pan with olive oil, s&p, basil and oregano until toasted.
I think this is the best soup I’ve made in a while - the family loved it too. It was so creamy and warming and mmm. You can find the recipe here! :)
Apple Pie Peanut Butter Oatmeal.
-1/3 cup oats, 1/2 a small diced apple, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, dash of vanilla, 1 tsp agave, 3 shakes of cinnamon, 1/2 tbsp flaxseed (optional).
- Stir everything together in the saucepan, except for the flax, adding at the last minute to thicken up. If you don’t have flax, then simply cook a little longer.
- Top with the remaining 1/2 an apple, pumpkin seeds, crushed pecans and 1 tsp peanut butter. Yum!
Sliced Braeburn apple with cinnamon, brown sugar and lemon juice. Dee-lish!
Bought some almond butter yesterday, so I thought I’d try it out. It’s not as strong a flavour as peanut butter, but it’s still equally as delicious. :D
Half a toasted multi-seed bagel with almond butter and pumpkin seeds, and a sliced braeburn apple with cinnamon.
Braeburn apple slices and peanut butter, a match made in heaven.
A chopped up braeburn apple with lemon juice, cinnamon and two Brazil nuts.
I’ve recently stopped taking my multi-vitamin as my vitamin and mineral levels were perfectly healthy anyway! However I was a little low on selenium, hence the Brazils. 1oz of Brazil nuts contains 777% of your daily requirement! So two a day should be the limit, to not OD on selenium. :)
Chopped up braeburn apple sprinkled with cinnamon and 3 pecans. Yum.
