  • Brekky on repeat at the moment Seriously hits the spot
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Brekky on repeat at the moment. Seriously hits the spot and will surprise you how quick it is... as quick as cooking an omelette cos that’s what it is!!!!! SWEET BANANA OMELETTE (or pancake if you want to reframe it for kids!) with a bit of yogurt and berries over the top! To make it simply: mash 1 banana in a bowl, whisk in 2 free range eggs, dash of vanilla and whisk until creamy and not too lumpy. Then cook it in a greased frypan, on a medium heat until you see the sides looked mostly cooked but the
  • A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel Community in Bondi Beach. A few years ago I set up a roster which I named "THE MUFFIN PROJECT" and each week either myself, a friend, family or someone from my community helped bake muffins and deliver them to Wayside in Potts Point or Bondi for their community to enjoy. Wayside has been around for decades, supporting those in our community who perhaps do not have a home, have experienced domestic violence, grief, loss and the list goes on. Their cafes serve these beautiful people and when I offered to

  • WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK TO DIVERSIFY YOUR PLANT BASED NUTRIENT INTAKE? I'm trying something new - JACKFRUIT!!!! Fun!!!! I was given some recently so had to throw it into good ole mexican with delicious spices - smoky paprika, cumin, cori, chilli, and lots of fresh veggies all wrapped up in a taco. Can't imagine life without Mexican food or VEGETABLES. Might need a trip to Mexico to completely immerse myself in the food and flavours and become a taco. Obsessed by veggies and look well I know jackfruit is a fruit, but I think

Berry Banana Crumble Muesli Bars

I think like all parents I’m constantly searching for new, delicious and nourishing treats to pop in the school (and my…) lunchbox and these BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS totally hit the spot.

They’re a great source of protein with both eggs and quinoa flakes in the mix, the yummiest balance of sweet from fruits and some honey or maple, and rich in fibre and healthy fats from a mix of seeds, coconut and olive oil.

I’ve popped some options for ingredient swaps in there if you don’t have these on hand too. Gotta make life as easy and nutritious as we can for the family #GetCracking 

LUNCHBOX FRIENDLY, BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS

Gluten free : Nut free : Dairy Free (opt) : Vegetarian

Makes 20 small bars

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Wet ingredients:

1 free range egg

1/3 cup honey or maple syrup

100ml extra virgin olive oil or butter+

Dry ingredients:

3/4 cup (110g) mixed seeds such as linseeds, sunflower seeds and sesame

1 cup gluten free (160g) or wholemeal plain flour +

1 cup (86g) quinoa flakes+

1 cup (52g) flaked coconut

1/2 cup (52g)  desiccated coconut

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Filling:

1 cup berries, fresh or frozen and defrosted+

1 banana, sliced

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180C and line a large baking dish (20cm x 20cm) with greaseproof paper. In a mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients and whisk well. In another large bowl combine all dry ingredients, mix, then add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix again. Pour half the mix into the baking dish, press out evenly using your hands then place in the oven to cook for 10 minutes. Whilst cooking mix together ingredients for filling. Once base is cooked, pour in the filling and then top with remainder of muesli mix. Move around a little so some berries poke through if you wish, then place in oven to cook a further 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely in tin, before slicing and serving. Store in the fridge up to 5 days.

+If using butter, melt before hand. If quinoa flakes aren’t on hand, use whole rolled oats, you may need a touch more olive oil , melted butter, or an extra egg if using oats as they absorb liquid more rapidly. Fruit filling can be swapped for whatever is seasonal just aim to keep the fruit pieces quite small so they cook more rapidly.
