Yum: Roasted melon seeds!

Yum: Roasted melon seeds!


When enjoying a refreshing melon, we often disregard the most nutritious part of it: The seeds!


Just like pumpkin seeds they can be roasted for a delicious crunchy munchy snack. Be it WatermelonCantaloupe or Honeydew, melon seeds are hailed as a superfood with various healing properties.


Roasted Melon Seeds

Scoop out the seeds from your fresh melon.

Place them in the oven or in a pan on the stove and slowly dry roast them.

Add a bit of fat so they don’t burn.

But no spices are needed: The roasting turns the melon seeds into a tasty snack. Remaining melon caramelises and adds extra taste.


As the seeds get roasted whole including the shell, they are quite tough to chew. But for that they are quite filling and come with a high fibre content which aids your digestion.



Chestnuts, as any nut, go well with chocolate.

As the chestnut has a rather mild taste, chocolate can easily overpower the chestnut flavour. The more chocolate you add, the more brownie like cookie you’ll get.

Depending on your personal taste, you might want to add sweetness in relation to the chocolate powder used. The starch in the chestnut will also turn sugary the longer you chew.

Chestnut gives the chocolate flavour depth.

Chocolate Chestnut Crumble Cookies

200g chestnut flour

50g salted butter

50g coconut oil

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1 vanilla pod

2 tablespoons 100% chocolate powder

1 pinch salt


For a vegan version you can of course just simply add chocolate powder to the vegan recipe for the Chestnut Crumble Cookies. 🙂


Somehow the chocolate requires more moisture to make it real nom nom yummy.

The chestnuts are so starchy, they absorb all moisture, so keep the cookies in an airtight container to avoid drying out.


The good news is that with the high carbs low fat ratio, chestnuts are low in calories.

In addition, even with the high starch content, chestnuts are low in FODMAPs and are suitable for people suffering IBS trying out the low FODMAP diet.

Echt lecker!

Einfach zuzubereitender glutenfreier, milchfreier, gesunder Pfannkuchen! 😋

The vegan version of my naturally gluten-free homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies is just as good, but healthier. 🙂

Yummy and good for you: The vegan version of my Homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies is healthy and low in calories.

Vegan Gluten-free Chestnut Crumble Cookies

200g chestnut flour

50g coconut oil

Salt to own liking, but no more than ½ teaspoon

1 ripe medium banana

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1 vanilla pod


Stir the at room temperature soft coconut oil into the chestnut flour together with the vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup and a dash of salt.

Puree the banana into a soft, even mush and mix in.

Roll the dough into a sausage and cut into 1/2 inch slices.

Place closely packed on a with baking paper covered tray and bake for 10 minutes at 180°C.


Completely guilt-free pleasure!

Not only are chestnuts gluten-free, their carbs are complex, meaning slow-releasing their energy.

Unlike most nuts, chestnuts are low in fat and protein, resulting in low calories.

The high amount of starch is very filling and satisfying, so these cookies could help with losing weight.

In addition, the vegan version ensures no animals were harmed in the making of these cookies. Besides maybe the humans who got stung by the chestnut’s prickly outer shell when foraging for these yummy treats. 😉

Homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies

Yum! Homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies


I couldn’t find a recipe with 100% chestnut flour in it, so I had to make one up.

The great thing about chestnuts is they’re gluten-free and thus a healthy intake of carbs and the bad thing about chestnuts is they’re gluten-free and won’t stick for baking.

Chestnut flour is not really easy to come by. We made it ourselves – hence the homemade – by peeling the roasted chestnuts ourselves – hence the crumble.

For a shortbread like crumbly and nutty biscuit that favours the original chestnut flavour, try this easy to make simple ingredients recipe:


Homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies

200g chestnut flour

100g salted butter

1 large egg

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1 vanilla pod


Cut the butter at room temperature into flakes to stir into the chestnut flour, together with the vanilla, cinnamon, honey and egg yellow. Beat the egg white stiff and mix it in.

Roll the dough into a sausage and cut into round 1/2 inch thick slices.

Pack closely on a tray covered with baking paper and bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes at 180°C.


Tip: Eat while still warm, fresh from the oven. Yum!

Bonus Tip: Try the vegan version of my Homemade Chestnut Crumble Cookies for a guilt-free snacking indulgence!

I’m a muesli fan, and I enjoy my muesli with yoghurt.

During the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet however, both wheat and lactose need to be cut out.

So here’s an alternative breakfast cereal recipe, low FODMAP and still yummy:


Being a muesli fan, this works as a low FODMAP alternative for me: Diced Banana, Buckwheat Granola and Coconut Puree.

Being a muesli fan, this works as a low FODMAP alternative for me: Diced Banana, Buckwheat Granola and Coconut Puree.


Add in equal parts:

Diced Banana

Buckwheat Granola

Coconut Puree


You can use any other fruit of the season or a combination of fresh fruits or fruit salad.

I use the buckwheat granola as is. Some prefer to soften it by letting it soak, but I like it crunchy.

The coconut pulp is a leftover from making coconut milk. It works well as a yoghurt replacement.
