150g Self Raising Flour
1 Tbsp oil (olive, vegetable or coconut)
1 Egg
335ml Milk
1 Jar of JimJams reduced sugar Hazelnut Chocolate Spread or Milk Chocolate Spread

In a bowl or jug, whisk together the flour, milk and egg until you have a smooth batter. Let it stand for 20 minutes.

Place a non-stick pan over a medium heat, add a little oil and swirl around. When hot, pour a ladleful of batter into the pan.

Cook for 1 minute, then flip it over and cook the other side for 1 minute.

Remove from the pan and place onto a plate. Repeat with remaining mixture.

For the filling/topping: warm 4 tbsp of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Hazelnut or Milk Chocolate Spread in a microwave for 30 seconds and drizzle over the pancake. Alternatively, spread straight from jar onto pancake. Add some chopped banana or fruit of your choice – yum!

1 cup of old fashioned chunky rolled oats.
1 ¼ cups Alpro (we used Oat Original) or Milk
2 tbsp Chia Seeds

Transfer mixture into small glass storage jars (Kilner), filling them ¾ of the way.  Secure with lid and place in fridge overnight.

In the morning, the oats should be creamy and plump.  Remove from fridge and add your favourite toppings (we love Greek Yoghurt, fruit, nuts, crumbled oat cakes and, of course, more JimJams Chocolate Spread drizzled on top!).

Store oats (minus toppings) in fridge for up to 5 days.

Healthy Breakfast Banana Split

Healthy Breakfast Banana Split

Ingredients

1 Small tub of Natural Greek Yoghurt (170g)
1 Banana
Handful of Berries
For the topping
1 Eat Natural peanut and popcorn fruit and nut bar.
1 Jar of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread.


Method

Place the Greek yogurt into the freezer for approx.1 hour to moderately freeze – you are aiming for an ice-cream texture – scoop able but holds firm.

Cut the banana into two lengthways (it helps to trim each end of the banana first to make it easier to cut without the banana breaking into pieces).

Use an ice-cream scoop (or dessert spoon) to scoop 2/3 balls of Greek yogurt and place in the middle of the banana split.

Add the fruit of your choice – we used blackberries because they are seasonal and grow just outside my bedroom window!

Heat a couple of spoonful’s of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread in a microwave for approx. 30 seconds and drizzle over banana split.

Cut off a small chunk from the Eat Natural Peanut & Popcorn Fruit and Nut Bar and cut roughly into little pieces – sprinkle over the banana split.  You can also use chopped nuts or granola.

Skinny Orange & Choc Muffins

Skinny Orange & Choc Muffins

Ingredients (makes 10)

200g self-raising flour, sieved
1 tsp baking powder, sieved
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, sieved
125g Whole Earth Brown Cane Sugar and Stevia Blend.
100ml rapeseed oil
2 eggs
2 oranges juiced (makes approx. 200ml freshly squeezed orange juice)
Zest of 2 oranges
3 tbsp JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread


Method

You will need a 12 hole muffin tin and 10 paper muffin cases.

Pre-heat oven to 180°c/350F/Gas 4.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and the Brown Cane Sugar with Stevia Blend.

In another bowl, beat the oil, eggs and orange juice and then stir in the zest of the 2 oranges (keeping some aside for decoration if required).

Slowly add the ‘dry’ ingredients to the ‘wet’ ingredients and briefly fold to mix (do not overmix as this will create a denser muffin as opposed to light and fluffy – it is fine if the mixture is slightly lumpy).

Spoon the mixture evenly between the paper cases (fill each case two thirds full).

In another bowl, beat the oil, eggs and orange juice and then stir in the zest of the 2 oranges (keeping some aside for decoration if required).

Put 3 tbsp of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread into a microwavable bowl/pourer and microwave for 30 seconds.

Gently pour a little of the chocolate on top of the mixture within each paper case and, using a toothpick, swirl the chocolate around.

Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen.

Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Optional – once cool, sprinkle each muffin with the remaining orange zest to decorate.
