Crunchy Granola Clusters

Sometimes you just need something to snack on…a nibbly kind of snack for a quick bit of energy and to satisfy a craving. Today I am here with some Crunchy Granola Clusters which do just that. A similar recipe to my favourite granola but with crushed nuts and baked slowly and packed together, you leave it to cool and then break it up into finger size bites. Perfect for a little on the go snack if you have pushchair aged children or for after school for the older ones. It’s pretty good for busy mummies too!

Plum & Cinnamon Crumbles

I don't think we can deny there is a slight autumnal chill in the air this week. I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet, but when I was kindly given some plums this week I had to put them to good use in the form of a tasty crumble (with a healthier slant - of course). You can use any fruit you have that works well in a crumble - we will be adding apples in the coming weeks...Autumn is a generous time of year around here! 

Berry Oaty Breakfast Pots

If you're a regular reader, you will know we enjoy breakfast here at Clean Little Tummies. This week, I'm back with another simple idea to help mix up your breakfast menu. These tasty little pots of goodness come together quickly in the morning, and there's only one bit of baking involved.

Bircher Museli Clean Little Tummies Style!

I’m always trying to mix it up at breakfast time to expose the Clean Little Tummies to different flavours. This week, I've added Bircher Museli to our breakfast menu. This recipe is an oldie but a goodie, and always a hit with the littleies, so I thought I'd share it with you. It uses simple store cupboard ingredients, mixed in with some fridge ingredient staples, which make it easy to make. There’s also the option of adding some lovely additions - like nuts, seeds or berries- to mix up the flavours and add extra nutrition. My favourite thing about Bircher Muesli is if you make up a big batch on a Sunday evening it can last up to three or four days in the fridge - so you've got breakfast sorted for the best part of the week before the week has even started! Win! 

Carrot Cake Smoothies

Who doesn't love carrot cake? It is a firm favourite in this house and now I've created a smoothie which gives us a flavour fix without all the sugar and nasties. This makes a tasty breakfast or a good afternoon pick me up for tired mummies. You might think the grated carrot won't get paste your Clean Tummies but try it, mine ate it without knowing what was in it and were so surprised when I told them they'd just eaten carrots for breakfast! You won't know until you try!

Chocolate Pancakes Fit For a Father!

With father's Day fast approaching, it is time to think about how we will treat our lovely, kind Daddy here at Clean Little Tummies. Daddy is often the bottom of the pile, but on Father's day we have chance to say thank you for all he does for us. Breakfast is a lovely way to spoil any deserving Daddy - and we have just the recipe for you (and him)! A clean, healthy recipe that tastes just as good as the real deal, tried and tested here at Clean Little Tummies, these pancakes will not disappoint.

Clean Little Breakfast Muffins

We're on half term this week, so our mornings have been slower, more relaxed and just generally more pleasant (and with a lot less nagging!) But, of course, this week won't last forever (sigh) so I'm here with a new breakfast idea that is ready to go first thing and also makes a lovely end of half term activity for your Clean Little Tummies.

Apple, Raisin & Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Are you looking for something to brighten up those January mornings? Does all the fun and frolics seem like a million miles away? If so, I'm here with a new recipe for some overnight oats that will make mornings a lot more tasty and a lot easier when you present yourself and your Clean Little Tummies with little jars of flavoursome oats.

Goodnight 2016 & Thank You x

As 2016 draws to a close I thought I'd write a little round up of my favourite recipes since I started blogging. 2016 has been the start of new things for myself, Mr J and our Clean Little Tummies. We started the year by offering on a new house which then all went through in May, we've had new starts at school and at playgroup, first tastes and first steps and of course the start of Clean Little Tummies Happy Mummies.

Super Easy Blueberry Overnight Oats

Whilst porridge will always remain a firm breakfast favourite in our house, we have recently become fans of overnight oats. What's the difference? Porridge is cooked oatmeal, while overnight oats are oats soaked overnight in a liquid of your choice, usually milk and yoghurt, and served with your favourite toppings. Overnight oats are, essentially, a faster, and tastier way to get your hit of oats-ey goodness. And trust me, they are delicious!
