Baby Pear Porridge

This is a variation of my Pear Porridge which is very baby friendly! I have been making this for the girls for their breakfast from when they turned 6 months old. It freezes and reheats really well and has an amazing smooth and creamy texture for a ‘baby puree’! This has been the girls all time favourite meal and is also my go to meal for them when they are sick as it’s delicious and nutricious!

For the rest of the family, I recommend trying my Pear Porridge (if you haven’t already!) It is a regular breakfast for myself, my husband and the boys in the cooler months!

15 Second Breakfast Biscuits

This is my take on the Belvita/Weetbix Breakfast Biscuits that have been very popular lately! I keep a box at my desk at work just in case I’m not organised enough in the morning (otherwise my breakfast would be a coffee only diet) – so this will definitely be replacing the store bought stuff!!!! This is great for breakfast or to snack on during the day!

These are nut free, egg free and dairy free which is handy for lunchboxes!!

Oat and Pear Pancakes

I LOVE pancakes for breakfast! It is really easy, can be easily refrigerated/frozen and reheated, and it results in minimal mess and clean up from 2 toddlers!

 
OAT AND PEAR PANCAKES

This recipe uses NO flour.

Gluten Free
 – substitute the oats for quinoa flakes or gluten free oats.

Egg Free
 – substitute the egg for 1 x banana

Dairy – You can also use whatever milk you like.

These are heavier and thicker than the average ‘flour’ pancakes which makes them really satisfying as they are nice and filling, and you would have no idea there’s pear in there! 

 
Add all ingredients into the bowl. 
 
 
Mix 40 seconds/Speed 7.
 
 Spoon batter onto a frying pan (medium heat) with some butter/coconut oil. 
 
  Fry approximately 2 minutes on each side until browned.

Healthy Banana Bread

This is a delicious and moist banana bread with a beautiful texture from the sultanas and walnuts.
This recipe is from my FIL’s partner, Jane. After visiting their place the other day, my husband and I were dreaming about it, it was so delicious! I have converted this recipe to make a quick and easy banana bread in the Thermomix! This takes a total 15 ‘Thermomix’ seconds to mix up, so is super quick and easy to make, but it is in a few steps so that the sultanas and walnuts aren’t blitzed up too much!!

 
Add 3 x bananas, self raising flour, oil, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to bowl.
 

Mix 4 seconds/Speed 5. Scrape down. 

Add walnuts – mix 3 seconds/Speed 3. 

Add sultanas – mix 8 seconds/Speed 2/Reverse.

Pour into loaf tin… 

 
 …and decorate with 1 x chopped up banana on the top.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
 
  

Leave to cool for a few minutes before cutting…a beautiful texture with the walnuts and sultanas!

Pear Porridge (with Oats, Chia Seeds and Coconut)

After making porridge for the first time last week in my Thermomix, I’ve been experimenting throughout the week with different fruits and combos. This is our favourite so far!

This is great for toddlers to self feed as porridge ‘sticks’ to the bowl and spoon, resulting in less spillage.

This can be pre-made and kept in the fridge/freezer and reheated in the microwave (with a little extra milk stirred through).

 
Blitz the pear – 2 Seconds/Speed 5
 
Add remaining ingredients
 
Cook 13 minutes/90 degrees/Speed 2/Reverse
 
 
Serve with sultanas

5 Second Chia Seed Pudding

I used to eat this everyday when I was actively trying to get pregnant/found out I was pregnant, and wanted to put super healthy food into my body! I’m not generally a health, superfood kind of person, but when it came to my pregnancy, I was moreso than usual! Now that I need more energy and need to be more organised with two toddlers, I have started making my Chia Seed Pudding’s again so it’s all ready to go for breakfast, or for a snack.

The Chia seeds are crunchier when eaten soon after being mixed with liquid, the longer you leave it to set, the Chia seeds expand and the consistency turns into a pudding and ‘gelish’ texture.

I add the dates for a natural sweetener, and the sunflower seeds and almonds for some texture (even though the LSA already has it in a ground form). You can mix it up and substitute with different ingredients or flavours – i.e. cacoa/cocoa powder instead of vanilla bean paste.

You can also add and mix fresh fruit or berries through, however it would need to be eaten within 24 hours or it tends to get a bit ‘funky’. I like to keep it plain so it can be kept in the fridge for a few days and ready to go when I want some pudding!

 
Add all ingredients into the bowl
 
Mix 5 seconds/Speed 6
 
Eat immediately, or leave in fridge to set for a few hours/overnight. Can be left in the fridge for a few days ready for your consumption!
