Jumbo Savoury Muffins w/ roast pumpkin and feta

 Makes 6 large muffins

These are the perfect savoury addition to a festive brunch. Wholesome and packed with delicious flavour, they are wonderful with a thick spread of butter or basil and pistachio pesto.

6 free range-eggs
½ cup milk
1 garlic clove – finely diced
3/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
¼  cup melted butter
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1 heaped teaspoon finely diced fresh rosemary leaves
2 cups Alison’s Pantry Ground Almonds 
¼ cup Alison’s Pantry Hemp Seeds
1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
80g crumbled feta
1 ½ cups roasted pumpkin cubes (roughly 300g of 4cm cubed raw pumpkin will yield this once cooked)
12  cherry tomatoes – halved
Alison’s Pantry Pumpkin Seeds and Sesame Seeds to top
Salt and cracked black pepper


Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius

Combine eggs, milk, garlic, parmesan cheese, melted butter, herbs, almond meal, hemp seeds and baking powder. Mix until thoroughly combined. Season generously. Gently fold in feta and roasted pumpkin.

Spoon into a well-greased or lined jumbo muffin tin. Place the halved cherry tomatoes on top, cut side facing up. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds.

Bake for approximately 30  minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean when inserted.

Wait until cool before removing from the tin. Will keep for up to four days in an airtight container in the fridge. Can be enjoyed fresh or toasted under the grill.


Cooks tip: You can use a regular sized 12 hole muffin tin if you prefer. Reduce the cooking time to 20-25 minutes.

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
Serves 6

Enjoy this tasty salad alone or pair with grilled halloumi or fish. It’s perfect to take along to summer BBQs. Serve warm or at room temperature.


1 cup Alison’s Pantry quinoa
2 cups water or vegetable stock
1 medium onion – diced
3 garlic cloves – finely diced
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ cup Alison’s Pantry hemp seeds
1 x 400g can chickpeas – drained and rinsed well
Zest of 1 lemon
2 medium carrots – peeled and cut using a julienne peeler (can also grate)
Juice of 2 lemons

1/3 cup Alison’s Pantry shelled pistachio nuts – roughly chopped
Large handful fresh parsley – roughly chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
Olive oil for sautéing
To serve: sliced avocado, additional hemp seeds, fresh herbs to garnish


Place the quinoa and water (or vegetable stock) in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook, with a lid ajar for 12-15 minutes until tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat. Place the lid on tightly and leave to sit for 5 minutes. Remove lid and set aside until ready to use.


Heat a very generous glug of oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook gently, without browning, for 5-10 minutes until tender. Add the fennel seeds, cumin, garam masala and smoked paprika. Cook for a further minute, adding additional oil if needed. Add the chickpeas and lemon. Cook for 4 minutes. Add the quinoa and the hemp seeds. Season generously with sea salt and cracked black pepper.


Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before adding the carrot, lemon juice, dates, pistachios, parsley and thyme.


Top with the avocado (if using) just prior to serving. Garnish with extra hemp seeds and fresh herbs.

Chewy Nut & Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Kelly Gibney from Bonnie Delicious has created these yummy little cookies in honour of National Nut Day. They are a piece of cake to pull together and utilise our Natural Deluxe Mixed Nuts. There’s cashews, brazil nuts, almonds and hazelnuts. Such a tasty combination!

1 1/2 cups Alison’s Pantry Deluxe Mixed Nuts
bonnie-delicious-cookies3/4 cup natural peanut butter (we love Mother Earth)
1 free range egg
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Pinch sea salt
70g dark chocolate drops (we love Donovan’s Chocolate)



  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius
  2. Place the mixed nuts into a food processor and blitz until the texture of course crumbs. Add the remaining ingredients (except chocolate) and blend until well mixed. You may need to scrape the sides a couple of times as the mixture is very sticky. The mixture should come together as a rough dough. .It may be necessary to add a couple of tablespoons of water to help it come together (this will depend on the humidity of the day and the peanut butter you use). Place the cookie dough in a large bowl and mix through the chocolate pieces.
  3. Form tablespoons of dough into discs and place them on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Flatten each cookie slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes until lightly golden.
  4. Leave cookies to cool for 20 minutes before moving. They are very delicate when just out of the oven.


Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days
