Healthy Oatmeal ‘Kruidnoten’

Gezonde Haver-Kruidnoten

Kruidnoten are a traditional spiced, bite-sized cookie that is eaten around ‘Sinterklaas’ in the Netherlands. Sinterklaas is based on Saint Nicholas, who was the patron saint of children. Sinterklaas is the feast that celebrates Saint Nicholas’ name day on the 6th of December. It is often celebrated by giving presents and sweet treats to children on the 5th of December, Saint Nicholas Eve. read more

Spinach Patties – low carb & gluten free

Spinazieschijfjes / Spinach Patties

Low carb & gluten free Spinach Patties, delicious as appetizer or as a side dish!

This was on my to-do list for quite a while. I wanted to create a spinach patty that’s low carb. But it got so low on my list of things I want to try/doctor up, that I completely forgot about it. Until I saw a picture of spinach balls a couple of days ago. Usually, these patties/balls/tots are made with flour and/or bread crumbs. And I figured that I could easily swap these for another low carb option. read more

Lemon & Raspberry Mug Cake

Citroen & Frambozen Mug Cake / Lemon & Raspberry Mug Cake

A super moist, lemony, low carb mug cake to satisfy that sudden sweet craving! Guilt-free!

Mug cakes. The new love of my life. Coming to my rescue when I get this sudden craving for cake. Which is usually later in the evening. And of course, those cravings hit when I don’t have a single crumb of cake in the house (yeah, I know, how is that even possible?!). And as I’m then the only one (my husband usually doesn’t fancy cake, only if it involves white chocolate), I make myself a single serve mug cake. read more

Apple Almond Cake

Low Carb Apple Almon Cake

Moist, delicious apple almond cake, you won’t believe this cake is healthy!

If I have to make a list of my favorite comfort food, apple cake (preferably straight out of the oven) definitely makes it to the top ten. But traditional apple cake or apple pie usually equals carb and sugar heaven, even without an optional mandatory serving of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

Healthier version

After a few attempts to make an equally delicious treat, I think I’ve come up with a recipe that will hit all the right spots, even though it’s a healthier version . Taste-wise, there was nothing really wrong with the first attempts. But the results were either too eggy for me (more baked omelet kind of texture) or too dry or too crumbly. And I am a bit fuzzy when it comes to texture. read more

Almond cake

Almond Cake

A really tasty, moist cake, that is low carb, gluten and refined sugar free.

Old recipes

I love a good cake. Too bad the best cakes are found in the non-healthy section… loaded with sugar and carbs. I do enjoy them though, just once in a while.

I do try old recipes and swap the sugar for a more healthy ingredient. And I’m happy if I succeed to make a sugar free version that’s tasty, but made with regular flours. I’m not all too keen on swapping regular flours for coconut flour or other low carb substitutes, as the results are often too eggy for me. Not so much the taste, but the texture. read more
