gluten-free dairy-free chocolate-chicory-walnut mug muffins

Here's a new Mamatouille riff on a mug muffin recipe we use quite a lot. The chicory and dark cocoa powder added wonderful depths of flavor.

You'll need (per muffin):

  • a greased mug
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon chicory powder
  • chopped walnut
Do this:

Beat everything except the walnuts in a mug with a whisk. When everything is pretty happy and blended, throw in some chopped walnuts. Microwave for 1.5 minutes (or bake in the oven if that's your preference and you have the time).

ginger-citrus-carrot-cabbage smoothie (with a few extras)

I've been making green (well, sometimes purple or orange) smoothies since 2009 when I first started reading about the fantastic properties of raw veggies. And I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorites so far.

For four servings, blend 1 apple with peel, 1 large avocado, 1 carrot, 1/4 head cabbage, a knob of freshly-grated ginger, lemon juice, and water.

It's smooth and tangy with all those great flavors.
