Prune chocolate slice

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, September 28, 2017, In : slices 

This is adapted from Eleanor Ozich's apricot and chocolate slice. I love the combination of prunes and chocolate, and have made my own chocolate in this recipe. This is another entry into #PlantBasedChallengeNZ #LittleBirdGoodness

1 c prunes, chopped
2 c ground seeds/nuts/grains - this is YOUR choice! I used 1 c rolled oats, 1/2 c sunflower seeds, 1/2 c activated buckwheat groats (you can also use pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, cashews, walnuts)
1 c desiccated coconut
1/3 c coconu...

Apricot and chocolate slice

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, September 7, 2017, In : slices 

It's always a pleasant distraction when a blog I subscribe to posts a new recipe. In the case of Eleanor Ozich's apricot and dark chocolate bumper bars my eyes and tastebuds were duly tantalised and I decided to make them the same day. Key words: apricot, chocolate, fudgy, no bake – and I had all the ingredients in the pantry.

1 c chopped dried apricots (I used organic sulphur-apricots hence they are not bright orange like non-organic ones)
2 c rolled oats
1 c desiccated or shredded c...

Rye oat soda bread

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, May 25, 2017, In : bread 


This is from Jamie Oliver's Superfood cookbook. It rather annoys me how 'superfood' has become an overused word to market brands, books and recipes. Some food is higher in particular nutrients than others; it's just common sense to eat a variety and as whole as possible. I wouldn't call this bread a superfood, it's just a simple bread made from wholesome ingredients. That said, if Jamie can get the masses to eat more seeds, berries, vegetables and whole grains and less meat, that can only be ...

Goji granola

This granola has just the right mix of nuts, fruit, spices and sweetness for me - and a fantastic crunch.

2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
4 tbs coconut oil
3/4 c rice syrup
2 tbs water

Life-changing bread

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, October 31, 2016, In : bread 

This appeared in 2013 on My New Roots and I've finally jumped onto the bandwagon! A dense, filling bread made of just nuts and seeds - genius. All mixed in the tin and you can experiment with different nuts and seeds too.
1 c sunflower seeds
1 1/2 c oats
1 c almonds (or hazelnuts)
1/2 c flaxseed
2 Tbs chia seeds
3 Tbs psyllium husk powder (or 4 Tbs psyllium husk)
1 tsp salt
1 Tbs natural sweetener (maple syrup, rice malt syrup)
3 Tbs melted coconut oil
1 1/2 c water

Orange & apricot cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, January 15, 2016, In : desserts 

Thank you Emily Rose, who wrote Have Your Cake (Five Mile Press, 2011). Her recipes have "no butter, no white flour, no added sugar". She uses wholemeal flour, rice bran oil and honey. I prefer spelt, coconut oil and rice malt syrup so have substituted with these and results were good!

1 c spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 c dessicated coconut
1/3 c rolled oats (have also used buckinis)
1/2 c coconut oil, softened (or rice bran oil)

Muesli bars

Part of my search for the ultimate healthy muesli bar for a toddler's consumption. It's from an Australian/New Zealand 'Food Expert'. This has a teeny bit of brown sugar and some honey, but that combination gives it a lovely caramely/golden syrup taste.

  • 1/4 cup of sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds

Coconut oatmeal cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, March 2, 2014, In : cookies 

By Frances

This is from The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife (Avery, 2005). It explains all the amazing benefits of coconut oil and includes recipes. I do a lot of raw baking with it and usually put a bit on my porridge. I made these cookies for our 21-month-old mainly, so she can have a sugar-free treat.

 

½ c melted coconut oil

¾ c sweetener (I used honey and agave syrup)

2 eggs

½ tsp vanilla extract

1½ c flour

1 c oats

½ c dried coconut (shredded, grated, d...

Frances makes oaty muffins with stevia

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, June 24, 2013, In : small cakes 

I wanted to make a sugar-free snack for my 1-year-old that's freezable too. So I adapted a couple of recipes to make this jumble of mini muffins. I used powdered stevia, which has an acquired taste - it's also green. I think stevia would work best in chocolate baking to disguise the colour. I'm entering this recipe into this month's Sweet New Zealand, hosted by Couscous & Consciousness.

Dry ingreds
1 c wholemeal spelt flour
1 c rolled oats
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
