Fine dining has never been quite welcoming to vegetarians, or anyone considerate of their health, but luckily with a little imagination at home you can feel like you're eating haute cuisine without any of the drawbacks. This is why we came up with Butternut Squash and Walnut Pate, a creamy and lavish spread for before or after dinner. This will take you only 40 minutes and is super straightforward, and can also be modified to vegan diets by removing butter. What more could you ask of the humble pumpkin?
Pikelets are the love-child of pancakes and crumpets, and we have paired them with our Chai Cashew Nut Butter for a recipe that will absolutely stun you. Ideal for weekend breakfasts, they're sweet and fragrant, with rolled oats, coconut shavings and of course nuts for texture. Serve with plenty of fresh fruits and a drizzle of maple syrup for a breakfast that tastes much less healthy than it actually is.
Our Mocha Walnut Butter is exactly what you think it is – the ultimate nut butter with a hint of sweetness and plenty of aroma. It is rich and indulgent without any questionable ingredients; just all of the relevant parts to make its flavor stand out. After 10 minutes of toasting the walnuts to intensify their flavour, they're blended (whilst warm) with the other ingredients to emulsify and then set. Spread this on literally anything, use it in baking or simply eat it by the spoonful.
If you, like many others, have a particular weakness for brownies, please take this as a warning: our Mocha Walnut Butter Brownies are utterly addictive and should be treated with caution. They combine chocolate, nuts and coffee in an almighty package, but somehow have no dairy, no gluten nor refined sugar. It's almost a contradiction that a dessert can be so indulgent without being so harmful. The seamless alternative to unhealthier options, this will soon become your only brownie recipe.
To the nut butter lovers, this recipe is for you. We put our Thermomix to good use to somehow make one of the most popular condiments even better, with the addition of sweet and spiced chai. Enter, Chai Cashew Nut Butter. Super fragrant and even more delicious, you won't realise what peanut butter (or any nut butter) has been missing until you try it. With your Thermomix you will be shocked that just 3 ingredients and 5 minutes will leave you with your new favourite spread.
We aren't trying to reinvent the wheel with our Crunchy or Smooth Peanut Butter recipe, simply help you get the most from your Thermomix and your food. This recipe does both, by allowing you to make a 3 ingredient peanut butter in just 30 minutes! Gone is the palm oil and additives you can't even pronounce let alone identify, and here is your very own smooth or crunchy spread. Enjoy!
Our Thermomix Sunbutter is a delicious alternative to nut butter, that packs just as much flavour and crunch as the originals, and much fewer additives than store-bought. Use this for toast, baking, smoothies or anything that you'd like a little crunch and flavor to. We recommend on top of apple slices and weekend pancakes, but the choice is yours! It only takes 15 minutes, and can be kept for up to 3 months unrefrigerated, so you have time to explore the many ways you can use it.
Keeping treats delicious, healthy and allergen-free is a tall order for moms around the world. Especially if one of those allergens is nuts, which are famously one of the most popular offenders. Our Sunbutter Hemp Protein Cups are the answer, as they are nut-free and full of goodness, whilst remaining tasty enough for kids to swallow whole. Maca powder (aka Peruvian Ginseng) is filled with incredible benefits, such as one ounce of it having 133% of the RDI of Vitamin C. In less than an hour you can have 12 of them sitting in the fridge for when the kids come home from school.
All good activities need snacks, and our Maple Meringue Trail Mix is the optimal treat for hiking, camping, Summer camps or even just making your snacking habits a touch healthier. Perfect for making in batches and sending off in lunchboxes or carrier bags, you'll keep this one on the roster for years to come. Sweet and addictively crunchy, this recipe is leagues ahead of any store bought trail mix you have had before.
Granuesli Snackers, as we are sure you can guess from the portmanteau of granola and muesli, are a healthy breakfast snack for rushed mornings and eating on the commute. As they only take 20 minutes, they can be done morning of, but are best prepped in advance. Toss everything together in the Thermomix and bake for just 15 minutes and you will be left with thick coins of healthy and slightly sweet breakfast treats.
