Breakfast recipes – Warm Prunes with Yogurt and Orange Zest breakfast
250g Stoned Dried Prunes
250g Pure Orange Juice
1 large Orange
2 tblsp soya/bio yoghurt
Place the prunes and orange juice in a pan and leave to soak for 30 minutes. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, thinly peel the zest from the orange and cut into fine shreds- you will need 2 tablespoons.
Spoon the cooked prunes into individual bowls, add ½ tablespoon of the yoghurt to each one and sprinkle with orange zest and serve.
Gluten & Egg Free fruit Cookies
The greatness of this recipe is it takes 10 minutes to make and uses up those black, mushy bananas lurking in the fruit basket!The mashed banana acts as a raising agent along with the baking powder to compensate for egg eliminations…
1 cup buckwheat or quinoa flakes
½ cup mashed banana
2 tsp. GF baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. Maca powder
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
Mix everything into the mashed banana (I like to leave the skin on the apple)
Make 16 cookies out of the mixture by spooning onto a tray lined with baking parchment.
Bake for 12 minutes or until golden and best eaten on the day.
*You could use grated carrot or even parsnip instead.
