Zesty, Seedy Breakfast/Dessert Bowl with Lime – vegan and paleo

There are some lovely unwaxed limes in shops now and I love lime, especially added to fresh ginger and  other fruits such as orange or papaya.  I don’t use milk and don’t like the alternative “milks” when I read about how they are made, so a simpler breakfast of fruit and seeds seems a better idea.  As I am not a fan of oats for every every day it is also cereal-free, no oats even, so gluten-free and with plenty of ground linseed it’s a good breakfast for a healthy digestion.   The cold-pressed Flax Farm Linseed Oil adds richness and lots of healthy omega-3.  This breakfast tastes fresh and fabulous. Of course you can adapt it to the fruits, seeds and nuts you have to hand.

Simple, sticky, 2 ingredient molasses flax bars

Treacle flax bars

Molasses: tasty, healthy and natural sweetening

I love molasses almost as much as chocolate in baking. It is a healthy sweetener with almost half the sugar of other sugars but loads of healthful minerals and masses of glorious flavour.   There are just two ingredients so these bars are very easy to make.  I enjoy these healthy bars for breakfast, not too sweet and a great start to the day,. They are also delcious with a cup of coffee or packed in lunchboxes or rucksacks for walking and cycling.

Every day I love these bars more and more until they are finished. They are intensely flavoursome and relatively low in sugar,, which is made even healhtier by the high fibre of the linseed which slows down the rate you digest sugars thereby protecting you from sugar spikes and the droopiness that follows foods made with refined sugars and starches.

Healthy ground linseed bars

With almost 14g of ground linseed in each bar it means a whopping 5.5g omega-3 and 6g fibre but only 12 g sugar and no wheat and gluten-free. Which makes these really healthy bars and a great way to eat your daily linseed.

Use just low carb fruit, stevia to sweeten and you have yourself a rare commodity, a lovely rich low carb dessert virtually free from saturated fat.

Slow release, fuller for longer

Ground linseed is an excellent low carb choice with less than half a gram of carbohydrate in a portion but more than 5g of protein and 7.5g fibre it’s satisfying  really helps to keep you feeling full for longer.

I have this sort of breakfast almost every morning. It is quicker and easier to make than read about, You use simple ingredients available at any supermarket and can vary as you want or leave out ingredients you don’t have or don’t fancy.

Traditional buckwheat and flax drop-scones, gluten-free, vegan, saturated fat-free

I often cook without eggs so that it is a fat-free and healthier option. I use chickpea flour with buckwheat flakes (or flour) and ground flax as a more nutritious alternative to wheat flour, eggs and all that stuff. I use a coarse ground chickpea flour called maghaj but gram flour works just as well.

I use coarse gound chickpea flour and buckwheat flakes because they are lower GI than finer flours and make breads and baking more chewy, substantial and satisfying.
