Baked Potatoes and Air Fried Potatoes
If you don't know how to bake a potato you are more of a beginner than I thought! But for those of you new to cooking, here we go.
I am a self-professed gadget queen. The picture on the right are leftover baked potatoes and mushrooms air-fried.
When you use an air fryer for potatoes, those potatoes need do be precooked for the best tasting 'fries'. Whatever baked potatoes I have leftover in my Ziploc at the end of the week, I cut into pieces and air fry.
To get seasoning to adhere to the fries, you can brush them with aquafaba (chickpea cooking or canned water) and sprinkle with no salt seasoning. It takes about 40 minutes to get the crispness I like with my air fryer.
Just remember that when you air fry food you are removing the water so in effect you are making the potatoes about 12% more calorie dense. So I cook whatever I have left over, set aside my usual portion and share the rest.
Pineapple Banana Nice Cream
Here is the most delicious and nutritious version of ice cream.
It has the benefit of no added sugar and lots of fiber which is great for anyone wanting to lose weight but needing something sweet.
There is no guilt in eating a scoop or two after your meal with this decadent but compliant dessert.
When shopping ALWAYS buy bananas. When they get too ripe to enjoy them, peel and freeze them. They are one of basics for all compliant baking as they act as both a binder and a natural sweetener. And, of course, frozen they become part of the best and healthiest dessert ever!
There are a couple of ways of making this:
2. The other method is to use a good blender or NUTRIBULLET.
3. After you have finished mixing it you can transfer it to a container that you can keep in the freezer. Use an ice cream scoop. If you don’t freeze it again, it will be more of a stiff milkshake consistency and you’ll end up eating much more than you should!
With the YONANA machine I can run it right into the freezer container and just mix with a spoon and flatten for an even flavour.
Amazing. For the price of two bananas and a few handfuls of frozen fruit I have enough healthy nice cream for the whole week!

Chef AJ's Banana Muffins
Thanks to the amazing Chef AJ here is a compliant recipe for muffins that you can eat as your second breakfast. They are filling and there is not a single bad thing in them. I have altered the method slightly from the original recipe for those without food processors. Also, this recipe fills the muffin cups to the very top so you might want to reduce the oats, milk and applesauce by ¼ of a cup.

Baking time: 40-45 min
Makes 12 muffins
