Nakd Bakewell Tart

Nakd Bakewell Tart

INGREDIENTS: Dates, cashews, raisins, natural flavouring.

Brain: No way, I don’t believe that this can taste like Bakewell tart.
Taste buds: OMG! It totally tastes like Bakewell tart. This is the best raw food bar ever!
Heart : Boys, come try this delicious thing. It tastes exactly like Bakewell tart.
Brain: I think you have forgotten that they have never eaten Bakewell tart, have no idea what you are talking about, and are stepping away from the scary, over excited Mummy.

Orgran Pizza & Pastry Multimix

INGREDIENTS: maize starch, potato starch, maize flour, glucono delta lactone (is it just me or does that sound like an American college sorority?), sodium bicarbonate, pea flour, salt, xanthan gum, carboxymethylcellulose, methylcellulose.

Can’t recommend this reliable cupboard staple enough. It’s very versatile. We’ve used it to make hot dog rolls, burger baps, pizza bases and donuts. It’s also enjoyed by all of Team Allergy, and there are not many things that pass that taste test. My only complaint is that the food needs to be eaten fresh so you can’t use this mix to make rolls for a packed lunch, unless you are also packing the oven to cook it then or you pack some kind of ice axe to hack into the rolls (they don’t keep well).

Raw Health Organic Hemp Protein Balls

Raw Health Organic Hemp Protein Balls. INGREDIENTS: Dates, almonds, hemp protein powder, guarana powder. The presence of guarana means that these are definitely not suitable for the Allergy Brothers. In fact, the pack specifies that they are not suitable for children under 12 years. Luckily, I am truly past that age and I am very tired (thanks to the Allergy Brothers’ multiple nocturnal wakings) so I am an ideal candidate for these. This seems a bit silly to say, but I really liked how cute the balls were: perfectly spherical and in a little paper case. They tasted good too and the flavour reminded me of Christmas. One ball was enough to give me an energy boost to get me through collecting the Allergy Brothers from school.
