strawberry chocolate chip vegan pancakes

As an IBS sufferer I really have to be careful what I eat, particularly for breakfast. Usually if I start the day off wrong, my digestive system will play up the rest of the day no matter what I do. I would get this heavy unsettling feeling in my stomach, like a brick. It feels like the food sits there for hours and I start feeling so tired, sluggish and lethargic. Pancakes were one of those foods that I had to avoid in the morning!

I love vegetable and bean burgers. They may not taste like meat but they can be just as satisfying without leaving you feeling heavy and sluggish from the high fat and oil content. To me, normal meat burgers are a treat – one that I would only probably have once or twice a year if even that. These vegan burgers however, I would happily eat everyday!

Here’s my healthier version of the traditional Hot Cross Bun using spelt flour instead of plain or wholemeal flour. The texture is somewhat different but that’s to be expected since I’m not using the typical ingredients that make a hot cross bun light and fluffy, but I like denser breads and cakes anyway so I’m absolutely thrilled with the results!

Healthy Rhubarb Crumble Bars

I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!

It’s not often that I would feel OK about eating a muffin for breakfast. But these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are so healthy that I CAN eat one for breakfast without feeling guilt or remorse. The only ‘not so good for you’ thing about them is the chocolate chips, but a little chocolate never hurt anyone 😛

Chocolate muffins that are high in protein and low in calories? Yes please! These protein chocolate muffins are only 159 calories – around half the calories of that in the average chocolate muffin. So you can enjoy a delicious chocolate treat without feeling any of the guilt!
