Blueberry, banana and lemon loaf with tahini drizzle (GF, SF, DF)

 

A while back I posted a recipe for a paleo chocolate banana loaf that was very popular with readers, and since then I have been wanting to (and it’s not often that I say this) make a non-chocolatey version with blueberries. I’m rather pleased with the results!

Fruity caramel puddings

 

Earlier this week on the Expresso Show Culinary Hotline we were chatting all about winter puddings (one of my favourite topics!) and it reminded me of this delicious recipe which I put together a few months ago.

4 Ingredient homemade chocolate spread (refined sugar free)

Sugar free nutella recipe

 

I am so excited about today’s recipe, and if you are a chocoholic like me then I am sure you will be too! In our house we like to keep a jar of chocolate spread at the back of the pantry cupboard for those occasional Saturday mornings when we have pancakes for breakfast. While I feel it’s ok to enjoy chocolate spread as an occasional treat I like to start the day on a wholesome note and am conscious that said chocolate spread is not the healthiest thing for the family to be eating first thing in the morning!
