Sweet pea brownies

Happy Chocolate Tuesday! And yes, you read that right. Sweet pea brownies. It’s no typo. There’s sweet peas in these brownies. And you won’t even taste them. There’s also cherry jam in them. You will taste that. And you can totally eat them for breakfast. It’s what I did the other day. Now, did I…

Chickpea Pancakes

I hate gluten free bread. But then again, I already hated bread before going gluten free, so that shouldn’t be too surprising. Luckily there are many other lunch options. My favourite lunch since going gluten free has been chickpea pancakes. They’re super easy to make and the basic batter consists of only two ingredients. Two…
