Posted by Bake Club on Monday, February 23, 2015 In : big cakes 

An easy sugar-free, flourless cake from Petite Kitchen. Went down well for a morning tea for 9, including teens and a toddler. I love recipes where you just mix everything in one bowl - less cleaning up!

3 tbs honey, plus 3 tbs for glaze
3 eggs
1/2 c raisins (or any dried fruit)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Oaty bars

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, February 20, 2015 In : slices

1 c sunflower seeds
1/2 c almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1 c dates, soaked for a while until soft (you can also use raisins, prunes or a mix)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg

Nut butter cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, February 13, 2015 In : cookies 

Another simple recipe from Petite Kitchen. Next time I will add more nut butter so the mixture isn't so crumbly.

1/2 c nut butter (I used peanut but almond is good)

1 c dates
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp baking soda

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 In : savoury 

Have been enjoying the odd quiet coffee break at Mondays and leafing through Eleanor Ozich's My Petite Kitchen Cookbook (Murdoch Books, 2014). Here's her seed cracker recipe. The garlic adds a strong savoury taste but it's moreish.
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
3 tsp garlic granules (I have also used 3 garlic cloves instead)
1 tbsp dried herbs
3-5 tbsp water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a tray with baking paper.

Peach crumble muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 In : small cakes 

By Frances
This recipe is adapted from Sarah Wilson's Not-quite-apple-crumble muffins in I Quit Sugar For Life (Pan Macmillan Australia, 2014). She uses chokos as they are very low in fructose but she also recommends apples or peaches, which have about a quarter of the fructose of apples (learn something every day!). They really do taste a bit like a fruit crumble. Went down well with a 2 year old and 5 year old too so it gets the thumbs up.

21/2 c almond meal
1/2 c arrowroot (I used cornflour)

Spiced pumpkin granola bars

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 In : slices 

My main problem with making muesli bars is that the mixture doesn't bind and the slices just fall apart. So then I just chuck the crumbly bits back into the granola jar and have 'twice baked' crunchy granola. This recipe was a bit crumbly so I'd suggest using less nut mix or adding a bit more oil or sweetener. It comes from Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar.

2 c mixed nuts and seeds, roughly chopped
2 c rolled oats
2 c coconut flakes (I used thread)
6 Tbs coconut oil or butter
3/4 c rice syrup
1c pumpkin...
