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

Lovely leftovers- healthy peri-peri turkey

I hope all of my lovely blog readers had a fabulous Christmas. We were pretty hectic with 10 for lunch on the big day, and 20 eating on Christmas night. We were kindly given our turkey this year by our local farm shop, we run with weekly meat draw at our pub for them. It was a little larger than I would have ordered otherwise. I got them to remove and bone the legs, so I could stuff them and roast them as mini joints. They were really yummy, but we had a lot of meat left over. I used up my turkey and veggie (carrots, parsnips, sprouts) left overs to make this yummy peri-peri one pot dish. Which is yummy but nice and light after the Christmas carb fest. Made in the slow cooker in just over an hour, it's a great meal to chuck on before a walk in this lovely wintery weather we are having. Last night I simply chopped up the left overs into chunks and sprinkled with peri-peri seasoning. Then this morning I put a small handful of pasta in my slow cooker with a third of a pint of wa
