Healthy cracker recipe


healthy cracker

If you’re big into snacking, then you might like this healthy cracker recipe. The original ingredients for this recipe didn’t quite tickle my fancy, so I thought I might throw in one or two things of my own.

What you’ll need:

  • 180g flaxseeds
  • 60g sesame seeds
  • 40g sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 250 ml water

Feel free to add dried fruit or some honey if you’d like.


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Combine the flax seeds and sunflower seeds with the water in a small bowl and allow to soak for at least 15 minutes. They will naturally begin to stick to one another – almost like jelly!

3. Meanwhile, heat a clean pan on medium heat and then add the sesame seeds, tossing frequently so they don’t burn and then set aside to cool.

4. Add the olive oil and sesame seeds to the flaxseeds and mix well – at this stage you could add some dried fruit if you’re using any.

5. On a baking tray lined with baking paper, spoon the mixture on and smooth out with the back of a spoon.

6. Put in to the oven for about 25 minutes or until nice and crispy. Be sure to check every few minutes towards the end as they burn easily.

7. You will know they are ready when they are nice and crispy, they should snap apart quite easily.

8. Return to the oven if they’re still soft.

9. This makes around 16 crackers depending on what size you break them in to.

10. You can have it on it’s own or with some salmon and tomatoes!

Do let me know if you decide to give this recipe a try 🙂

Healthy pizza


Healthy pizza

After having devoured a not-so-healthy pizza yesterday evening, I think it’s only natural that I share this recipe with you.

Now, I’m going to have to be honest. This pizza recipe didn’t go down well with my brothers. But then again, most boys don’t even think a healthy pizza recipe should even exist so I guess that really says it all.

If you like to eat healthily but still seem to have a weak spot for pizzas (a bit like me), then this recipe is definitely worth giving a try – don’t worry, it won’t kill you!

Here’s what you need for the pizza base:

  • Half a head of cauliflower, chopped
  • 65g grated cheese
  • 5g chopped parsley
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • Salt & pepper to taste (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 230°C.
  2. Put the cauliflower in a food processor and blend until shredded (it should look a bit like rice).
  3. Boil this in an inch of water and let it cook for no more than 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and drain into a strainer.
  5. Transfer to a clean dishtowel, wrap it up and twist it until all the excess moisture is out. The more liquid comes out, the better!
  6. Put in a bowl and mix it with the rest of your ingredients – it’s okay to use your hands.
  7. Once the mixture begins to hold together, put it onto a prepared baking sheet (without the baking paper it will stick so make sure you don’t leave it out).
  8. Press and shape it into the pizza crust of your desire and then bake for about 20 minutes or until the crust is firm and golden brown on top.
  9. Remove from oven to add some sauce with your favourite toppings.
  10. Bake for an additional 5 -10 minutes until toppings are cooked.
  11. Slice and serve when ready.

Hopefully you get the chance to give this a try. If you’re adventurous with your pizza toppings this recipe could make for the perfect pizza – that’s what I try to tell myself anyways!

Avocado ice cream


avocado icecream

I’ve been eating pretty clean lately and only recently I found myself craving some sugar, It’s funny because only a few weeks back I was bragging about how unaffected I was by sweets and junk food – guess I was on a different boat this week!

Anyways since there’s always a few avocados lying around the house, I thought I’d make up a ‘healthy recipe’ to beat my sugar craving. I know it’s a bit odd to have ice-cream in this weather, but what can I say, I’m a bit of an odd ball myself so what can I say!

I know there’s a good few recipes for avocado ice cream , but some contain dairy or sugar – two things I’m trying to avoid… so here’s a dairy-free alternative:

2 ripe avocados
240 ml soya milk
130 ml soya cream
75 g  honey
a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
a pinch of salt

Peel and pit the avocados before you put it in the blender.

Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.

You should get about 1 litre from this.

Put it in a freeze-proof container and freeze for at least 6 hours.

If you like your ice cream a bit soft then you don’t have to wait long before scooping it up.

I know it’s no Ben & Jerry’s, but it’s definitely much healthier!
