Cheeky chia dark chocolate muffins

Four chocolate chia muffins

I’m all about the hippy hipster healthy food at the moment. Here are three important things to know about chia seeds:

1. They’re oh-so-healthy
They’re made up of protein, fat and dietary fibre. Plus there’s a heap of minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous.

2. They’re grown in Australia.

Pumpkin, spinach and semi sun-dried tomato muffins (hello high protein, low fat)

Pumpkin, spinach and semi-sundried muffins

My life has changed and so has my appetite. So my dear Clever Muffin has to change with me. Expect more savoury. More high protein. Bigger bites. And who knows what else.

Bit of metaphor for my life really. Very poetic. In a Year 12 literature essay kinda way.

These muffins have two whole cups of pumpkin in them, a cup of spinach, NO BUTTER OR OIL (I know!) and seeds. A good high protein low sugar fix. (more…)

Low fat blueberry, apple and oat muffins

Here’s another recipe for a healthy blueberry and apple type muffin. Hey! Come back. I know I’ve posted a few of these before but these are STAPLE foods. This is the ‘other’ kind of baking. The making of food that is food for you and fills you up. (more…)

Low fat blueberry lemon cornmeal muffins

Blueberries are one of those super foods that contain anti-oxidants. I realise, as I write this, that considering I just splurged on a face serum yesterday due to its promise of anti-oxidant goodness, I should really know why that’s a good thing. (more…)

What I cook when I have no time to cook

Whoops. Did I have a blog I was supposed to update? My bad.

I’m in a play again (see below for some sneak preview shots). Which means I am as time poor as they get. It’s not that I stop baking when I’m time poor, a woman needs to eat, I just reach for the classics instead of trying new recipes.

So I thought I’d share some of my staple go-to’s that I posted when I’m pretty sure my readership consisted of me, and my family members I made sign up.

Chocolate carrot muffins:

Heavy as a rich chocolate cake, RIDICULOUSLY low in calories. High GI (OK, I don’t actually know what that means, but with the oaty-carroty goodness I’m sure it is). I literally have one next to me as I type this. (more…)
