1 cup rice milk
4 tbsp canola oil
2 cups quinoa flour or other gluten-free flour
1 tsp guar gum
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
3 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup organic carrots, grated
1/4 cup raisins

Original Bircher Muesli

1 serving

Muesli was developed as a health food by the Swiss Physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner towards the end of the 19th century. This is the original muesli recipe Mr Bircher-Benner recommended to his patients.

1 tbsp rolled oats
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1-2 apples (including skin)
1 tbsp hazelnuts or almonds, ground

Combine oats and water and refrigerate overnight. Soaking improves the nutritional value of oats as it allows enzymes to break down and neutralize phytic acid, a compound that can block the absorption of many minerals in the intestines. Grate apples. Add them, together with sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice, to soaked oats. Stir well. Sprinkle with almonds or hazelnuts and serve.

Buckwheat Pancakes with Bananas

Serves 2

All key ingredients in this dessert — buckwheat, bananas, and brown rice syrup — are considered hypoallergenic, which means that they are very unlikely to cause allergic reactions in humans. This is great news for people who often get canker sores since food allergies and intolerances are believed to be the main cause of these little mouth ulcers.

1 cup buckwheat flour
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp potato starch
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup rice milk
2 Tbsp canola oil
Vegetable cooking spray, for frying
2 large bananas, sliced
Brown rice syrup, to serve

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray with vegetable cooking spray. With a ladle, pour batter to the size you prefer. Even out batter on skillet with back of a spoon. Cook pancake on medium high heat for a few minutes until bubbles appear. Flip over and continue frying until cooked (a properly cooked pancake appears dense and not sticky when cut in the middle).
