Wheat,Yeast,Dairy & Egg Free Muffins & Product Review


Super healthy muffins http://mumstakefive.blogspot.com.au/
written by: bel

Last week i was lucky enough to receive some of the great products from Food For Health.

All of their products use the highest quality ingredients including sulphur-free fruit and are free of wheat, sulphur, dairy, yeast and cane sugar. The benefits and dietary requirements are clearly stated on the boxes which i found great when selecting a product.

 Narelle Plapp a Naturopath, was a Health Food Retailer and originally developed two homemade allergy-friendly muesli's to satisfy her patients’ digestive need. Mixing and packing her home-recipe muesli s on her kitchen table her feedback positive and demand grew. From there her Brand Food for Health has become one of Australia’s most trusted allergy-friendly health brands.

Food For Health

The range is pretty thorough - Muesli's, Clusters, Health bars, Kids snack bars and "bites". There is also two new ranges Berries and Dark Chocolate Antioxidant health bar and Ancient Grains health bar with Chia seeds and Yoghurt. Sounds good huh.

Banana Custard Filled Snack Bars

I really didn't think my kids would go for these bars.  They don't usually like this filled style of bar.  Well i was completely wrong on this. even the little seeds on top of the bars didn't deter them.  I admit i have been using them as bribery and i was the best mum when i pulled one out for the after swimming lessons I'm starving snack.   Master four really loved them and now asks for the Monkey bars.  I'm loving the fact they are amongst other goodness, gluten and sulphur free.

The Fibre Cleanse Muesli

"It’s time to get serious and ensure your
insides get the nutrients and digestive
support they need.
Food For Health’s Fibre Cleanse Muesli
aims to help you maintain regular bowel
functioning and digestive support with a
mix of psyllium, oat bran, rice bran,
lecithin, magnesium and slippery elm
topped off with a delicious cinnamon  taste"

The ingredient list itself is pretty impressive : Organic rolled oats, oat bran, psyllium, linseeds, almonds, rice bran, linseed meal, sunflower seeds, lecithin, cinnamon, magnesium chelate & slippery elm. 
I had it on its own - Its pretty tasty and has a real Cinnamon taste - which is good for adults which i do understand the product is aimed at but there is no way MY kids would eat it.
So me being me i got creative :)
Fruit Salad and Fibre Cleanse Muesli layers with homemade apple custard 
This was so nice one of the best breakies I've had in a while (until you see the recipes below). I just layered apple, pear, blueberries and banana with muesli in between and topped it off with some homemade apple custard which i had made for the baby but that's ok she won't know :)

I went further and made some muffins which were great though they do contain Flour and Dairy.  You can find that recipe here: Banana and Blueberry Muffins .

A friend mentioned to me shes looking for wheat free, yeast free, dairy and egg free recipes and i thought i would take the challenge with this already fantastically healthy muesli and i made my muffins catering to all her requests.   I was surprised how good these actually tasted, they're pretty good even if i do say so myself.

Wheat free, Yeast Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free
 - Banana and Blueberry Muffins

3 medium Bananas mashed
1 cup Almond Meal
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 1/2 cups of Food for Health's Fibre Cleanse Muesli
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup frozen Blueberries
2 tbls spoon Olive Oil (you can use another oil)
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Cooking spray for your tin.

Mash up your Bananas in a large bowl.
Add Sugar, Olive Oil and Vanilla stir it all in.
Then mix in the Almond Meal and Coconut Milk.
Fold in the Food for Health Fibre Cleanse Muesli and your Blueberries

Spoon evenly into a well greased muffin tin. I used Olive oil spray. I also sprinkled a little brown sugar and muesli on the tops before baking for no other reason other than to make them look pretty :)

Bake approx 1hr  at 160 degrees Celsius fan forced. I did give  little spray on top of the muffins about half way through, i thought the tops were getting a little dry.

12 yummy moist muffins that a great for breaky and snacks.
