Pineapple Breakfast Pudding (GF, corn free, vegan with sugar-free option)


I made a pineapple breakfast pudding for breakfast and as a quick snack for the children

– gluten free sandwich bread (Or plain gluten free cake)
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp nutmeg
– 1/4 cup flax meal (optional)
– 1/2 tsp spice
– I/2 tsp vanilla
– 1/8 cup raisins
– 3/4 – 1 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want it.)
– 1/4 cup oil
– 1/4 cup crushed pineapple
– 100% pineapple juice
– 1/8 cup shredded coconut (optional)

* *replace the sugar with blended dates for a sugar free option

Crumble bread. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add pineapple, raisins and oil and mix well. Add just enough pineapple juice until the mixture becomes wet and soft.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 or until the sides and top become crispy.

The best of all it is easy enough for the children to make by themselves because it is a dump cake type recipe.


Oat meal pudding cups


1 cup garbanzo flour

2 cup steel cut oats cooked

1 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp spice

1/4 cup coconut oil and cream


Blend oats and oil until smooth. Pour oats in a bowl and add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined. Spoon batter into greases muffin tins and bake until outside is golden brown and the pudding cups are springy when pressed and not soft.

Now, I am using a new stove that has temperatures between 185 band 260 and since I hate reading manuals, I have no idea what temperature it really is, but I am guessing that 300 would be the correct temperature.

Makes 18.



Spiced Banana Loaf




1/2 cup grape seed oil

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

3/4 cup cassava flour or tapioca flour

1 1/2 cup split pea flour

1 cup sugar ( I see brown cane sugar but soon I’ll be using palm sugar!)

2tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

2 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp clove powder

1 tsp nutmeg powder

1/2 tsp spice

2 ripe bananas


Grease a 4×8 inch loaf pan and set the oven to 350.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together except sugar in a bowl. Mash the banana in a small bowl and add the sugar and oil.

Mix banana mixture into flour mixture. The dough should be very sticky. Spoon batter into a 4×8 inch loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife come out clean.

I did not have a loaf pan sine I threw out my non-stick pans. I am going to get stainless steel pans. So until then I will be using my circular pans.

Breakfast Pudding-Sugar Free

Wow the days are sure passing by quickly! The 30 Day Healht Challenge is coming along nicely for me, except that I used some sugar.

Who would have believed how much sugar is a part of my diet and how much effort it takes to cut out sugar. It’s not hard, but because it has been such a part of my diet, it takes A LOT of thought to prepare sugar free desserts. And even though there are many times I do not eat dessert, the ones that I eat are loaded with sugar. Sigh.

So you would imagine how much of an eye opener this challenge has been for me.

Well I made a Pudding this morning and surprisingly it was a BIG hit with my son! Oh and it has in 4 different fruits.


1/2 cup raisins

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup prunes

1 cup dates

1 cup cassava flour

1 cup brown rice flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp spice

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup grape seed oil

1/2 cup water



Soak fruit in enough boiling water to cover fruit for about 10 to 15 minutes. While fruits are soaking, prepare one 8 inch round baking pan. Mix dry ingredients together. Blend fruit along with soaking water, making sure no chunks of fruit are left (maybe you might like it with chunks for texture but I don’t). Use 1 cup of fruit mixture (I will be using the remainder to make great cake) and add it to the flour and mix well. Add the oil and mix. Slow add the water and mix thoroughly. Pour into greased baking pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and the bake for 10-15 minutes at 250 degrees. Alternately you can cover the pudding with foil and bake for 25 minutes at 350 and then remove the foil and bake until the sides begin to turn dark brown (10 to 15 minutes).

I would have loved to serve this with some sugar free strawberry ice cream, but I did not remember to put the strawberries in the freezer last night so the ice cream is on hold.

Task 6- No Sugar. What Ever Shall I Eat?! (Meal Ideas)

There are so many things that we can eat while on a sugar free diet.

Here are some ideas.

1) Garbanzo paste (humus)


2) Milkshakes like the Coconut, Sunflower Milkshake or the Carob, Strawberry Shake that I made


3) Eat fruits- I have some pomegranates and I am hoping to try something with them


4)Eat sugar free snacks and cakes like my Sugar Free Vanilla Cake


You can do like I did and replace the sugar with dates and unsweetened applesauce or “fruitsuace” like pear. Just cook and blend and you are good to go.

5) Drink 100% fruit juice (no added sugar). You can even make you own. My son has a blast with this!

There are lots of things you can eat. Sugar free actually tastes great!
