Egg and Salmon

Miss 8 is having a growth spurt. She’s already eaten a large bowl of overnight oats with fruit, yoghurt and nuts and complained she’s still hungry. So I cooked up this sucker. To Make: 2 eggs cracked inside a round cookie cutter and cooked in a fry pan, with a wee bit of olive oil…

Peanut Butter

Mr 10 said: Mum! We’re outta peanut butter! I’m gonna make some more ok? 5 minutes later and he’s spooning it in by the mouthful. Once the peanuts are roasted, its simply a matter of pouring peanuts in the food processor and adding peanut oil (optional, I find it helps the blender work faster) and…

SeedButter

An alternative to Peanut butter! Seedbutter: Roasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, oil (optional: I used Almond oil for its sweetness as these seeds can be bitter + extra oil helps my blender work better) and a pinch or two of salt (for taste) Whizz til smooth. Time in the kitchen, including grilling the seeds,…

So yesterday she made this morning’s breakfast and we only made a small amount so she doesn’t get taste fatigue and decide she doesn’t like it. Banana and…

Spiced Apple and Millet Porridge

Spice Apple and Millet porridge! I found Millet grains (a gluten free cereal/grain. They are small, yellow and hard. The little blighters look a wee bit like a corn meal) at my local Bulk Barn. So I bought a bag and made some porridge. To make: in slow cooker or large casserole dish put: milk,…

Rice Porridge

Breakfast on a Budget: Rice pudding! 4 cups (ish) rice 2 litres (ish) milk (can use part water if you want – I use full fat milk to help keep the kids fuller for longer and curb that dreaded sugar spike from the rice) 1 tin of coconut cream pinch of salt Bang in slow…

Amaranth Porridge with Stewed Figs & Walnuts

Slow cooked rice and amaranth porridge. Served with stewed pears and walnuts. Put rice and amaranth grains in the slow cooker with milk. Cook for 2-3 hours on low.
