Sugar Free Sweet Spread

This is my favourite spread at the moment, I put it on my popcorn, oatcake’s, pancakes and it’s great for my low GI lifestyle.

All you need is

  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Stevia

Stir these together to your taste and serve on anything you want!!

The ingredients are all great for you:

Coconut oil is a much need healthy saturated fat, which actually increases your metabolism and helps your thyroid ! not to mention you can use it as a natural moisturiser, lip balm & hair conditioner.

Cinnamon is great for balancing blood sugar, is an antioxidant, helps digestion, anti inflammatory and stimulates circulation.

Stevia is my favourite sugar-free sweetener! I use the alcohol free Nu Naturals brand as some others are quite bitter. Extracted from the stevia plant this sweetener is natural and has no effect on blood sugar, great for people on low gi lifestyles, anti-candida diets and anyone cutting out the processed white stuff!

Brunch Pancakes

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been busy with my studies and preparing my website and my weekend’s have been full of summer fun with family and friends 🙂 excuses excuses!!

I made these pancakes the other morning for brunch, as they are quite filling they will keep you going for hours. Even better though they are sugar-free, grain free and gluten-free. They fit in perfectly with my low GI lifestyle. Super easy to make too!

what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
  • stevia to taste
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon (optional)

Beat the eggs until frothy, at least a minute, add the stevia and almond milk and stir well.

In another bowl mix the coconut flour, baking powder and sea salt to a lump free mix.  I added the cinnamon here too. Cinnamon is great for regulating sugar levels, helping with insulin resistance, which means great for weight loss and a balanced appetite.

Stir in the wet mixture with the dry until you have a smooth batter.

Heat pan and use a toxic free oil to heat such as coconut oil. Any other oil actually becomes toxic when heated and looses it’s nutritional benefits.

Once pan is heated, add 2 tbsp for each pancake, each side usually takes just over a minute to brown. These pancakes have a doughy middle and are very satisfying. I top mine with my favourite sweet spread, which is also sugar, dairy and gluten free! You could also top with fresh lemon juice and xylitol. (Waitrose actually stock Xylitol now!)

Serve the pancakes hot and enjoy!!
