Five fruit brunch muffins- dairy and sugar free

Start your day with these delicious dairy and sugar free muffins. Packed full of oats and containing five fruits, it's a  great way to kick start your morning.
January blues are best beaten away with healthy eating. These scrummy muffins are dairy and sugar free, plus are packed full of fruit. My dairy free baking habit was kick started after my son was born. He had a milk protein allergy, so I had to kiss dairy good bye in order to keep breastfeeding him. In the run up to my daughter's birth I'm experimenting with some dairy free bakes, to freeze and thaw once she is born, so I can cut dairy out of my diet again.

 To make these five fruit brunch muffins:

Ingredients to make two dozen muffins

One punnet blueberries
One punnet raspberries
Two Apple's (chopped)
Two bananas (mushed)
One cup of raisins
Two cups of oats
One cup of self raising flour
One tablespoon cinnamon
One tablespoon local honey
One table spoon of flax seed
Half cup of fruit juice
Five eggs

How to make healthy muffins

Preheat your oven to 180c
Mix all the fruit and dry ingredients together in a bowl, mix in the fruit juice by stirring well.
Break the eggs into the mix and gently stir them into the mix
Pour the mix into your muffin trays 
Bake for 15 minutes

Allow to cool, and then enjoy, just like Froggy.

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using Cloth Nappies for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro.
I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too!
Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies
You can grab little bloom nappies on amazon from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Starting our kitchen garden

Growing our own food has been an ambition of my husband and I. We both really value locally sourced produce,  and enjoy spending time outdoors.  In our first home together (a basement flat in the city centre) we planted anything and everything we could in planters on the windowsill.   I had green beans trailing up the bars of our windows. They bolted and twirled up the bars but never got enough light  to produce anything edible.

Then we moved into our first pub which had masses of outdoor space, unfortunately,  all car park and no dirt. We managed to sustain some hanging baskets with strawberries and a few herb planters, but that was about it. 
Now we are in our new home.  A lovely country pub in the new forest, whiich offers a private garden just for our little family.  We moved here when I was 8 months pregnants and ever since, I've been desperate to make the most of it. 
Since the new year we've been planning what to do with this neglected space.  I found this article from nu…

Breastfeeding past six months

Hi! This Blog post is now Two and half years old (Yikes!). It's one of my most visited posts, so I thought I would update it for all you lovely new visitors. I actually ended up breastfeeding froggy past a year, where I found myself pregnant with number 2 and decided to continue through my pregnancy and try to tandem nurse. We have just ended our breastfeeding journey- somewhat shy of 400 days. It was a lot longer than I had ever anticipated. But great. It helped keep a bond strong through becoming a family of four, then me returning to work. Nursing an older child is very different from nursing a six month old. From about 18 months he would nurse once a day (bedtime) and maybe through the occasional grazed knee and long haul flight. I'm not sure I will nurse his sister as long, and I know I definitely wouldn't have nursed him to this point if I hadn't had become pregnant so quickly after (weird logic huh?). So please don't read this as necessarily a post urging y…
