When Charmaine of featured these MaltEaster chocolate bunnies on her Instagram, I know I have to get my hand these. Aren’t they cute?

In one of her replies, she mentioned that she got them from Kmart but I have found them in Coles instead.


[Recipe] Almond Meal & Chia Seeds Pancakes, Flourless, Vegan Friendly & Gluten Free

Flourless Chia Seeds Pancakes, Vegan Friendly & Gluten Free |

I love trying new ways of making pancakes.  Case in point the easy and healthy overnight porridge pancakes, the fluffy blueberry yoghurt pancakes and, every now and again, I miss savoury pancakes like cheesy cornflakes pancakes and the wacky mac ‘n’ cheese pancakes.

Having friends with special dietary requirements in mind, I wanted to try a pancake recipe which can be both vegan friendly and gluten free. As an avid home cook, I like to be ready for all kinds of dietary requirements that come my way.

In my last 5 Ingredients Spelt and Chia Seeds Banana Bread post, Felicia from Dish by Dish asked:-

“Hey Emily! this looks beautiful! I’m just wondering if I can use almond meal to replace spelt flour?”

I thought what a brilliant idea to give a flourless banana bread a go!  So here it is, Felicia, my take on flourless banana bread – with almond meal with raw cacao powder. I did not add any sugar to the loaf except for a light sprinkling of coconut sugar on top of the banana toppings to help with the caramelisation. Ooooo, caramelised bananas, can’t say no to that hey?
