Best ever banana bread

Is there anything better than banana bread? This recipe is super delicious, incredibly cheap and freezes beautiful! It's the perfect recipe to use up and bruised or battered fruit left at the end of the week (or any frozen ones lurking in the freezer!). It's also a good ones to get your kiddies to help with. This recipe is adapted from a Live Lighter recipe, the original of which you can find here. I've altered it slightly to suit my own tastes (and the ingredients I had on hand!) INGREDIENTS: 3 ripe bananas (overripe is good too!) 1 pear (apple would work well too!) 1/4 cup of sugar (white is just fine!) 1/2 cup of milk (I like HiLo) 2 eggs 1 cup of SR flour 1 cup of wholemeal SR flour 1 ts

Chewsday Review- Annabel Karmel Bolognese Pasta Bake

Lots of requests in the last few weeks for a Chewsday Review of Annabel Karmel products, specifically the ready meals and frozen veggie purees. Most of you know that I've been lucky enough to meet the fabulous AK in real life on several occasions- check out some of my recaps here.

Chewsday Review- Vaalia Kids Breakfast Yoghurt (Banana and Natural Grains)

Back in the yoghurt aisle this week (just for something new 😂), to review a Vaalia yoghurt. It's marketed as a kids 'breakfast' yoghurt, which I think is related to the inclusion of natural grains.

Stabiliser 415

Chewsday Review- Uncle Toby's Quick Oats

So many requests for breakfast recommendations. I always like Weet-Bix and porridge- but how do quick sachets of porridge stack up? So without further ado, I present you with today's Chewsday Review featuring Uncle Toby's Multigrain Apple & Cinnamon Quick Oats. 🔶Ingredients: 🔹Wholegrains (77%), sugar, apple pieces (apple 5%, preservative 220), cinnamon 0.2%) 🔹The 77% wholegrains are made up of rolled oats (67%), rolled rye (5%) and rolled wheat (5%). 🔹Preservative 220 is sulphur dioxide, and commonly used in dried fruit. Some kids with asthma can react to 220, but it's not dangerous for those who don't have any reaction. 🔹Nutritionally, quick oats and rolled oats are exactly the same. T
