Lemon strawberry muffins – glutenfree and sugar free

Glutenfree and sugarfree muffins |

I am not necessarily all about eating glutenfree or sugarfree and especially not when it comes to baking. On the contrary; I think – to be honest – that sugar is just very delicious. But I know a lot of people eat sugar free and don’t use any grains and I like a good challenge.On top of that I am doing the I quit sugar challenge myself right now so the perfect time to experiment with these muffins. I do use honey which is officially not allowed on the IQS program. I am just saying.

The result? It’s a good muffin. I used my favorite muffin recipe and replaced some of the ingredients with other things. It’s a good breakfast muffin that is far less sweet than you are maybe used to. It a tiny bit dryer than would I would like, but the topping with the greek yoghurt and the lemonhoney and vanille gives it just that bit extra that it needs. The topping is more acidic than your average buttercream but better for the hips too! ;)

Making your own mustard

I can be the impatient type… Bread that needs to proof is something utterly annoying. Things that need to soak or ferment not much better. And mustardseeds I need to soak overnight… well that just seemed pointless to me. Because yes I had been...

Tartelets with cavolo nero and spicy mustard

Growing up my mum used to make kale with mashed potatoes quite often. And to my own horror, I absolutely hated it. My mum didn’t have much imagination when it came to the mash. Kale, potatoes and there might have been a sausage I’d...


Soba noodles with spicy chicken and lemon oil

Noodles… They make me happy. And this dish is really simple to make. I used soba noodles that are made of buckwheat flour and therefore are glutenfree. Not the reason I used them but I just like the taste. Maybe they’re almost as good...

Dudefood Tuesday: Tapasburger with ‘cohones mayo’

I love Spanish food and the spicy flavours they use in the Mediterenean kitchen. That’s why I am also very fond of tapas and tapasbars. For sure, every dining facility that has the word ‘bar’ in it, must be a GREAT place to eat...
