Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies (Gluten Free)

Sweet and salty in a mouthful

Inspired By Boo

Peanut Butter Brownie

A few months ago I shared my Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Biscuit Recipe and told you about my love for peanut butter. But I just can’t go past the sweet and salty taste that peanut butter makes when it’s paired with the likes of honey or chocolate.

I know I’m not alone with this, so for the chocolate and peanut butter lovers out there I wanted to share my Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies that I made yesterday. They have that perfect salty and sweet taste. Such a great treat – I even took a couple to the ballet for mum and I to share.

Red Velvet Cheesecake (Gluten Free)

How decadent

Inspired By Boo

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Now and then Jesse and I decide to make a ridiculously unhealthy dessert like Chocolate, Caramel, Cookie Dough Cheesecake we made at Christmas time.

Often we bake these crazy desserts for my family and the recipes always turn out nothing short of amazing. This Red Velvet Cheesecake was no exception and despite appearances and the long instructions below it is very simple to make!

As usual I adapted the recipe to be gluten free. Simply replace the gluten free flour for normal flour if you would like a gluten containing version. Either way it will taste fantastic.

Ingredients

Cheesecake
– 450g cream cheese, at room temperature
– 2/3 cup sugar
– pinch of salt
– 2 large eggs
– 1/3 cup sour cream
– 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Banana and Raspberry Muffins (Gluten Free)

Another great muffin combination

Inspired By Boo

Banana and Raspberry Muffins

Over the past few weeks Inspired By Boo has been a little neglected.

I would love to say I was busy baking to share with you all but sadly I just haven’t had time.

Getting back into the kitchen this week though I decided it was probably time to bake something a little healthier.

Now I’ve probably lost a few points for choosing a healthy option but these Banana and Raspberry Muffins really are tasty. Bonus for being low fat, low in added sugar and full of fruit and fibre.

Banana and Raspberry Muffins (Gluten Free)

Ingredients
– 2 cups self-raising flour (Gluten Free)
– 1/2 cup LSA mix
– 3/4 cup brown sugar
– 2 tablespoons reduced fat margarine, melted
– 1 cup (250ml) skim milk
– 1 egg
– 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
– 3 medium (or 2 large) sized ripe bananas, mashed
– 1 cup frozen raspberries

Creamy Tomato & Egg Caserole

Perfect for a special breakfast

Image

I am always looking for new creative things to make for breakfast. To be honest though, sometimes I go into the kitchen just to make something I have already tried, but then something happens and I end up with a brand new recipe. 😀 This actually happens quite often.  The other day when I was beginning to cook a meal I said to my hubby, “I’m not sure what I am making yet.” And he said,”And how is that different than normal?” That made me laugh! He knows me so well! He knows I love to create new things and is a great encourager of me!

The sauce for this meal made it!  The coconut milk added just the right creaminess to it! It was so good and full of so much flavor! Love, Love, Loved it!
