Ottolenghi’s giant chocolate chip cookies

Giant chocolate chip cookies, anyone? Because why not! A crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside cookie is hard to resist!

Cheat cheese twists

It's a Sunday evening and I can think of nothing more comforting than tucking into these cheesy, harissa-spiced twists. Reminiscent of the savoury baked goods you'd find in M&S, these flaky delights make for an extra special snack, taking no more than 10 minutes to prepare. You can swap the harissa for tomato puree drizzled with a touch of garlic oil and a light sprinkling of chili flakes, as a technically FODMAP friendly alternative. Or you can push the boat out and opt for some homemade gluten free pesto.

LEON’s vegan scones with a gf twist

LEON's fast vegan cookbook has been a long-time favourite of mine. I turned to it this morning when I fancied something different, but straight forward to make, for breakfast. I tweaked the recipe in keeping with the fodmap friendly diet (however, the addition of currants is optional). Delicately savoury in taste and crumbly-textured, these scones make for a satisfyingly stodgy breakfast or an equally wholesome afternoon tea, accompanied with either sweet or savoury condiments. For an unexpected but complementary pairing, try raspberry jam with cream cheese - a personal favourite.

Instead of the pre-blend I would normally use, I decided to blend up some gluten-free roll oats to make for a healthier alternative. Ingredients 100g ground oats 200ml oat milk 1… Continue reading 3-ingredient pancakes
