Gluten free cornflake tart [DF, SF, GF]

I’m a big fan of money saving, particularly when it comes to regular household bills and expenses. One area where we spend quite a lot of money, food wise, is on snacks and treats for Daisy. With 4 small bakewell tarts costing £2.00 and 6 jam tarts costing £2.50 this really prompts me to make my own. It’s a little more time consuming but I know that Daisy loves my cooking and appreciates all the treats. Recently I made this gluten free cornflake tart and I’ve had quite a few messages asking me for the recipe – so here it is!

Dairy and gluten free pancakes [DF, SF, GF]

I love whipping up dishes for Daisy that are similar to the ones that we eat. Making dairy and gluten free pancakes is really simple, they taste pretty similar to ones with dairy and gluten and are just as simple to make. I love a recipe that is quick, easy AND frugal. Well, as frugal as dairy and gluten free recipes can be. Scroll down near the end of this dairy and gluten free pancakes recipe for the recipe card to get started right away!

Gluten free jam tarts [DF, GF, SF]

Baking always goes down well with a 3-year-old at home and allergies don’t need to be a barrier to this! We like to bake on weekends, mostly because we have more time to clean up and spend together. This recipe is made using homemade gluten-free shortcrust pastry, but you can buy ready-rolled too!

Turkey mince cottage pie in the slow cooker [DF, SF, GF]

We love a nice hearty dinner in our home. Preferably something where I can do the prep early in the day and then enjoy the fruits of my labour at the end of it. Working from home means the slow cooker can be used lots. This turkey mince cottage pie is a frugal, lower fat alternative to a slow cooker cottage pie and it is still packed with flavour.

Gluten free shortcrust pastry [DF, GF, SF]

In our home, we love to do lots of baking. It is a great cheap way to have fun with little ones and also it is pretty easy to rectify mistakes when you’re rolling out pastry. Especially if you make something simple like jam tarts or cheese straws. This gluten-free shortcrust pastry is cheap, easy to make and can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days if you want to spread out the baking fun with little ones!

These pastry cases were made using this gluten free shortcrust pastry recipe – my 3 year old made these cases herself so I think that shows the pastry is fairly easy to work with!
