Carrot Savoury Egg White Bites

Ingredients:

grated carrot 1 medium or 3-4 small
1 egg white
approx 1/4 tsp of  each – garlic, cumin, pepper and salt, thyme and onion seeds
Instructions:
grate carrot
add all ingredients and whisk well
spray pan and mould with fry light or chosen oil, heat and then
add  the carrot batter, turn heat down
cook on a low heat slowly until set and turn over for another couple of minutes to brown
Could be eaten hot or cold, they hold their form well and you can adapt to make sweet or savoury using grated fruit and other flavours. I love to experiment and this is one I shall try and mix up the flavour combinations – just follow your own taste buds!

Apricot and Raspberry Crisp

Fruit crisp:
 
Tinned apricots drained add some fresh raspberries
 
Blitz into crumbs 1 Warburtons thin
Mix with it, 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 TB Sukrin Gold, 1 tsp oil, tsp of vanilla
 
Top fruit with the crumbs and bake approx 30 mins 180
 
Served with custard 10 g of birds custard powder made with skimmed milk, flavoured with sweetener and cinnamon
 
Sprinkle 5 g almonds over the custard which I did after serving  – really lovely and crispy topping, rather like cheesecake base crumbled, this would bake a great cheesecake base if you baked the crumbs first

Banana and Orange Pancakes

Banana and Orange Pancakes
 
Ingredients:
 
banana
satsuma (whole fruit with skin)
2 eggs
tsp cinnamon
 
Method:
Blitz to make a batter in food processor
 
Cook in non stick pan, I have found using silicone forms easier to keep a good shape
 
One Pink Lady apple cut up and cooked in water and cinnamon with frozen black cherries, cook until soft
 
I had saved the juice from tin of chick peas
 
Using an electric whisk, with tsp of sticky caramel flavouring, tb of sweetener, whisk until thick and creamy
 
This is really lovely alternative to cream and actually tastes quite nice
 
I love fennel seeds, so roasted a few in a pan and sprinkled over just before serving
