Ginger and Feijoa Pecan Cake


by Nurse Nicky May 26, 2017

Feijoa season is still in full swing and so I'm on the hunt to find creative ways to use them up!

This cake is delightfully moist and flavorsome, as a good cake should be.

Don't expect it to rise hugely in the middle (grain free baking often does), as the ingredients are too dense for that, but don't let that put you off because this nutrient dense cake is divine cold or hot served along side a cup of tea on any occasion.

Make: 20 mins

Bake: 45 mins +

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup of mashed feijoas
  • 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup (or more if you're a sweet tooth)
  • 50g butter, melted (or coconut oil for diary free)
  • 4 eggs
  • pecan nuts to decorate

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 160 degrees  and line/grease a medium sized cake tin with baking paper

2. Put mashed feijoas, eggs, butter and sweetener in a bowl and whisk until smooth.

3. Combine all dry ingredients in another bowl, then add to wet ingredients.

4. Pour mixture into pre-prepared cake tin and then decorate with pecans.

5. Place cake in the hot oven for 45 minutes. Check the cake with a skewer at this point to see if it's cooked in the centre. If not, continue to cook at 5 minute intervals until skewer comes out clean.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Featuring my favourite oats and banana, I had a hankering for something chewy and substantial with my morning cuppa the other day, so I whipped up these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

I adapted a lactation cookie recipe I made on repeat a few months ago when Hope was born. Pulled out the brewers’ yeast and flax meal and added some ground chia and almond butter for healthy fats.

Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites
Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites

by Nicky Skinner July 13, 2018

I whipped up these protein-packed bites using NuZest Chocolate Clean Lean protein powder, but you can use any kind of protein powder you like.

As you can see, my chocolate coating skills leave a lot to be desired, and I've since had recommended to insert a toothpick and roll the bite in the chocolate to get an even coverage all around. Try that and let me know how you go.

Is there anything better than cookies and cream? Maybe chocolate cookies and cream!

I was feeling creative and this slice just kind of came into being, but I'm not sorry because it really works!  This raw decadent slice is smooth and creamy with a delightful crunch from the cacao nibs.
