I have been trying to make low carb donuts with NO success so I chucked it in for now and am sticking to pancakes.

I have been experimenting for a while and I have it perfected. These pancakes are gluten free, low carb, grain free, paleo and Yum Bum. Unfortunately I am still struggling to make something like this vegan. So please feel free to offer egg free suggestions.


1.5 banana's
3 eggs
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon gf baking powder
1 large tablespoon of nut butter - I use the almond, brazil, cashew kind. I am yet to try peanutbutter..
1 pinch salt
Butter for the pan

Method of awesome

Put all the ingredients except butter into your preferred whizzing machine. A vitamiser,  blender, the other thingo. Or you can mash up the naana's and then mix with all the other ingredients with a fork or  whisk really well. The batter should be fairly thick but pourable.

Heat up a fry pan and chuck in a dollop of butter - about a teaspoon. Let it melt and get frothy, then carefully pour in some batter to the centre of the pan. Keep them fairly small as they can be a little trickier to flip than flour pancakes. Allow to cook until bubbles form on top and then slip the flipper thing, spatula, under all the edges (which doesn't make sense cause there is only one edge, it is a circle after all). Then take a deep breath and flip it over. Cook for another minute or so. Put more butter in the pan and repeat.

Top with whatever you like. I had strawberries, extra butter and pretend Maple Syrup that is sugar free. But you could have sugar free jam, 'sugar' and lemon juice, bacon (best with maple syrup), even savoury toppings. Whatever!

Cheesy Thai Avacodo and Tuna Bake.

For some reason this recipe makes me think of Hawaii. Maybe it needs some pineapple to make it a truly bizzarre dish.
I am a master of making kick arse food out of the few ingredients in the empty fridge. I do have an awesome pantry which helps a lot. Stock that fucker up with stuff and you will never need go hungry again.
Ok, so this dish is burk. I love it.
Recipe for 1 so just multiply accordingly. The kid is at Nanna's so it's just me, the avocado and some gin, perhaps later some Dollhouse for some Alpha action. Yehhhpha.
Anyway, viewing habits aside, this is how it rolls -

Cheesy Thai Avocado and Tuna Bake

Looks like a big shiny cheesy fucking mess of yum.

Methode Champanoise-

Base 1 avocado per person.
Cut in half, and lay it on a tray on some foil hole side up. Do chuck the stone. I think you can grow it into a tree like this.... so cool.

Topping per person -

1 stick celery chopped into tiny little bits
30 ish Thai mint leaves
1 stick spring onion (or green onion, or scallion, or whatever the fuck they are called).
1 medium tin of tuna in oil, drained
1 tsp fish sauce or oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of sushi ginger chopped teeny
2 tablespoons of sushi seasoning or vinegar
2 tablespoons mayo
1/2 to 1 cup of grated cheese for on top of the mess.

Methode Champenoise Gruet-

Mix all the topping ingredients together except the cheese. Taste it. Yum hey?
Blob it all over the avocado. Then put cheese all over the top. Grill under hot grill* for about 10 - 15 mins until Ballistic like a Missile!

*but not too close to the elements/gas, I took out the tray thingy and put the tray and foil at the bottom.

So good, I ate it in about 7 minutes whilst blogging the awesomeness.

MONDO Peanut Butter Chocolate cups

That are kinda good for you! 

Right, here we go, peanut butter choc cups that are similar to the famous Hershey's treat. I love American chocolate and jelly beans and donuts but I don't want to put shitty food in my body any more so I have been researching raw choc recipes on other blogs. These two in particular are a real inspiration for me, Rawified and Fork and Beans.

Tested them on the English teacher. He was reasonably impressed but I think he needed them sweeter. This recipe obliges.
I am trying to make my choc's low carb as well. Feel free to follow the awesome recipes on these blogs which use honey, agave and maple syrup. So delicious and still really good for you too. Or use mine that mainly use Natvia which is a brand of fake sugar that is reasonably natural being stevia and erythritol, or just plain stevia.

The better the cocoa, the better the chocolate.

There is a tiny bit of alcohol in the recipe, to dissolve the fake sugar, but it is cooked off in the microwave, so these choccies are ok to give to the kiddies. Although you probably won't want to share them at all, so tell them they have dog pooh in them or just don't have kids around you when you make them. I did share, but I need feedback. I have recommended more sweetener than I used in my first batch. They just needed a bit more to kick through the strong bitterness of the raw cocoa.



1/2 cup  Coconut Butter. You get this from all health food shops, it is a bit pricey but goes a long way.
6 heaped tbs of Raw Cocoa Powder. Again a bit pricey but worth it. Or any good quality cocoa.
4 tsp of sugar replacer.
1 cap full of gin or vodka or other alcohol
1 tablespoon of malt syrup


Nuke the coconut butter in a pyrex jug or similar, or in a small saucepan for about 30 seconds. It melts fast. Mix in the cocoa powder and malt syrup.

In a little cup or bowl, mix the sugar and alcohol. Place in a microwave (bit hard on stove as it is so little) and heat for about 40 seconds or until 'sugar' has dissolved. Granulated sugars of most kinds will not dissolve well in the coconut butter. Another option would be to use a liquid sweetener, but I am yet to get one.

Mix the sugar syrup into the choc syrup. DONE!

You can do so much, just put it in molds as is or add any ingredients you like - vanilla, peppermint essence, dried fruit (high in carbs though) nuts. Whatever you love.

Now for the peanut butter filling! 

1/2 cup natural peanut butter. Not the crazy chemical stuff you normally see on the shelf.
1 teaspoon of salt, or more to taste. This is supposed to be super salty.
3 teaspoons of sugar replacer done with the vodka/gin again. The filling also needs to be super sweet.
1 tablespoon melted coconut butter.
1/2 finely ground coconut. I just whizzed it in the whizzer.

Mix all ingredients together. NOM. Test to see you are happy with the level of sweetness and saltiness. This is key to trying to get them like the Amercano ones.

To assemble

I used a mini cupcake pan, but if you don't have one that is cool,  just put the little foil chocolate patty pans on a tray. First layer in a bit of the choc and then pop in the freezer for a few minutes to set, then add a layer of the peanut stuff, freeze again, then another layer of choc, and freeze again. 

You could do this in any kind of mold, or in a take away container as a slab which you then cut up. Set in the freezer for a while if you need to cut it. Then gobble up. But be careful, they are super duper rich, and are best nibbled. This kind of choc does melt faster in the fingers than store bought crud.

I reckon you could store them for a while, but pffft, as if!  Thinking of making these as chrissie presents this year. My family always get home made presents from me I think they think the presents suck, but I don't care. I usually make them hand made soap. They think I am insane. Whatev's.

Enjoy this eating healthy chocolate. It gives you super powers.

So fricken yummy. My kid loves them. I love them. I am not normally a huge fan of chocolate either.

"Gillard spoke up for my vagina" T-Shirts & Hoodies & Stickers by MsThunderballs | Redbubble

 So here it is, the t-shirt that says it all.

An important side note, I am not a party promoter or even follower. I do not support a lot of what the Labor party in Aus stands for. I am an anarchist and I vote below the line. But Ms Gillard has changed the course of history with this one. Just sayin'. Oh and all profits (which aren't much really as redbubble gets most of it for making the tee) go to supporting two hard working ball busting artists! Snaps to my good friend and collaborator Hamish. We did good on this one, more to come I am sure.

And please feel free to give suggestions on the design and concept, positive and negative. This is a job that we slammed together in 2 days so it can always be improved upon!

If the tee is too expensive at $35 you can get a sticker for 5 easy bucks.

Planning the takeover at 2am.

File:Mary Wollstonecraft cph.3b11901.jpg
This total babe is Mary Wollstonecraft. Awesome feminist author and mother of Mary Shelley.

At 2.30 am I am plotting world domination (again) and stalking feminist bloggers who own a penis and or a vagina.

Mary Wollstonecraft did not own a penis, but she did write feminist works in the 1800's. Yeah, I know right, how's that? There were women who could write books back then. I am yet to read hers but am totally intrigued. Anyone who knows me knows that I am an Austen junkie. So I am sure her books will be equally as entertaining even if there is no Darcy cake at the end. Darcy would be a total feminist if he were alive today.

I am enthralled, possibly in lust, with the writing of this chappie - Ben Pobjie. His pro femme rants are brilliant. I love a man who isn't afraid to stand for feminism - as all my fave man friends do.

Yay you Ben.

Oh so yeah, going to take over the world using the most powerful tool of all...The Tee Shirt. Yep. Watch this space for t-shirt awesomeness.

Fast food nation.

So,  I was starving after a hard morning shopping at Savers and I just wanted some fast food.
I grabbed a tin of lentils which I drained a bit of the liquid from. Chucked it in a fry pan with a stick of chopped celery a heaped teaspoon of veg stock powder and a few semi dried tomatoes. The toms didn't really suit.

Simmered the lot till nearly all the liquid was gone. Served in a bowl with some Danish fetta.
5 mins tops! Enough for lunch for one or a snack for two. Serve with toffuti and lemon juice for vegany goodness.

So damn easy, super nutritious and tasty!
