Soft, fluffy, gooey and with the perfect balance of salty and sweet these little gems are packed full of healthy yum. You can play around with different flours if you don't have the exact ingredients.

Gooey Peanut Butter Surprise Muffins

Prep time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 30 - 35 mins | Total time: 40 mins | Serves 10-12


2 eggs, whisked
3/4 cup amaranth flour
3/4 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup mashed, ripe banana
1/2 cup milk of your choice (I used coconut)
1/4 cup of sweetness like honey, rice malt syrup or maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla paste
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2-3 tbs of peanut butter ( like Pics, which tastes amazing and available at Coles, but it's really up to you)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 170C.
  2. Mix all wet ingredients (eggs, banana, milk, coconut oil, vanilla paste) in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients (flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, baking powder)
  4. Fold the wet mixture into the dry.
  5. Line a muffin tray with 10-12 muffin liners (or square pieces of baking paper pushed in)
  6. Divide mixture evenly between your desired number of muffins, note the bigger the desired size, the less muffins you will have.
  7. Add a small dollop of peanut butter on top of each muffin and swirl in with a skewer.
  8. Place muffins in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes or until golden.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool ever so slightly before tucking in for a gooey peanut butter and banana sensation.

 I like to pop a few in the freezer so that a) they're not all eaten in one day, b) there's some to snack on throughout the coming weeks.

Perfect Buckwheat Pancakes

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave

Pulled pork down right is a winner for any meat lover. Rich in iron, lean and oh so tasty you can enjoy pulled pork in a slider, taco or as a main with some roast vegetables and slaw. I like to make a big batch of pulled pork from time to time and enjoy over the next couple of days. If you have a slow cooker, it's literally a matter of putting a roast shoulder in, rubbing it all over with spices, turning the slow cooker on and enjoying when it's ready. SaveSave
