To encourage saving, I have set myself a weekly budget for buying food, eating out and weekly treats. So when compiling my shopping list, staring at the jars of flours and powders in the cupboard, I realised I had an abundance of delights in front of me and it was time for some store cupboard baking and freezing.
These were the recipes, I came across to replace bread and cakes which were so easy and tasty; I just had to share them:
I had a random bag of ryeflour so attempted to make really easy Rye Bread but alas our oven is not good for this and it never cooked in the centre. Instead I turned it in to breadcrumbs and have been making burgers, stuffed mushrooms and pakoras with it ever since- waste not want not! But give this recipe a try and let me know if it works!
Seed and nut bread
This bread is a winner, it doesn’t need to be kneaded, or to rise in the oven, it is packed full of protein. I chucked in whatever nuts, seeds and herbs that I had in the cupboard, it truly is a Life-changing loaf of bread (name of the recipe!).
These are always lurking in our house, so I either chuck them in the freezer and make into smoothies or make some kind of banana sweet treat.
Banana and Gramflour muffins
Amazing vegan muffins that are so satisfying and easy to make. I didn’t have any corn flour which didn’t seem to matter and I put raisins in instead of chocolate.
Chunky Monkey muffins
Rye, Banana & Peanut Butter Bread
Finding a vegan recipe is always fun, so I am pleased to say that this one worked fine by replacing the chia seeds with egg replacer (already in the cupboard). I put raisins in instead of cacao and used some wholewheat flour as I wasted all the rye on the unsuccessful bread.
Mostly this month I have been eating oats and bananas!
