No butter, no flour – toasted teacakes

I’m one of the strongest beleivers that “baked goods” are not enhanced by the use of the magical ingredient you see i all recipes –> all purpose flour.

Highly processed and with no taste whatsoever, its just adding the “base” to your recipe and ultimately being the source for lots of unneeded and empty calories. There’s so kany other choices you can use rather than flower which have extra benefits as well as extra taste, it’s absolutely absurd why someone wouldn’t want their baked good to taste better and healthier at the same time.

On my recent trip to finland i brought back home with me bags of rye bread which i was absolutely obbsessed about there, its just so full of flavour! I also brought some rye flour, which can also be found at any local supermarket – so go buy some now its a great kind of flour-substitute which you can experiment with.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons rye flour
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely grated cauliflower
1 egg white
1 tablespoon goat’s cheese
1 teaspoon baking powder

Mix the ingredients and pour into cupcake ‘pockets’ (i should really know what their real name is) and leave in oven for 30 minuets.

Leave to cool and cut each teacake horizontally in the middle, place in toaster before you eat 🙂

Get creative and add extra toppings:
1.cooked spinach
2.mushrooms
3.raisins and honey
4.black pepper
5.poppyseeds and honey

Cant wait to try all these, its really such a successful base ingredient for when you’re craving a fresh out of the oven treat with your tea or lunch.
