Wholegrain Rolls, from Worlds Best Diet

I have converted these rolls from the Worlds Best Diet book, to TMX.
The recipe makes 20 small rolls at 135 calories each. Although small they are very filling.


500 g warm water
2 teaspoons of dried yeast
200g wholemeal plain flour
200 g Spelt flour
250 plain flour, I used bread flour.
30 g traditional rolled oats
25 g sunflower seeds
25 g pepitas
10 g salt

Heat oven to 200 o C FF, place dish with water in bottom oven.

Place all ingredients in TMX bowl and knead for 4 minutes.
Tip into an oiled container, cover with plastic wrap and allow to double.
When doubled tip on to floured sillmat and knead by hand for a few turns.
Roll into long sausage and cut into 20 pieces.
Roll each piece into a ball and place on an oiled tray.
Allow to rise,double, ( about 30 minutes).
Bake for 20 minutes, turning tray 1/2 way through.
Cool on wire rack.

These can be brushed with egg wash before baking
They are soft crusted with first bake but crisp if reheated.
They freeze very well.
They make an excellent dinner roll.

Kefir Bircher Muesli

Love this as it is nice as is , but you can add extra fruit or / and seeds. I have added Chia seeds to the basic recipe for an extra Omega 3 kick. 
Rolled oats 100g
Kefir made with lo Fat milk, 250g
1 Apple,  quartered, cored, wash but leave skin on. 
Chia seeds, 14 g. 

Place all in TMX bowl and mix 30 seconds, speed 4. 
Store in Fridge. 

This makes just under 2 cups, with 1 serve 1/2 a cup.
1/2 cup serve is approximately 235 calories. 
Store in fridge for up to 4 days.
Can sweeten, but I have not found this necessary.

Macadamia and Cheese Biscuits

These are easy to make, easy to bake and you can keep a raw mix in the freezer ready to bake. 
Would make an excellent gift for Xmas, but should be eaten with in 4 days.   I will test this out. 


1 cup of raw Macadamia nuts,( make sure they are fresh).
250 g sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
1 egg
1/2 cup plain flour
2 Tablespoons of Black Sesame seed, ( nigella seeds) optional. 

Grind Nuts in TMX leaving a bit of texture, not paste. Set aside
Grind cheese until small crumbs with no large lumps. 
Return nuts to bowl and add egg and flour. 
Mix at speed 4 until mix comes together. Tip on to Silmat  and if very sticky, add a little more flour. 
Form into a flat oval disk about 2 cm thick, 7 to 10 cm wide. ( this will be the length of the biscuit. )
Wrap in glad wrap and freeze for 30 minutes. 
Heat oven to 180 o C. 
Remove from freezer, remove wrap and with a sharp knife cut thin strips off the dough. 
Sprinkle with Black Sesame seeds if desired. 
Place on lined oven tray and bake for about 20 minutes until brown around edges. 
Cool on wire rack. 

Mat be able to usePecan or Walnuts or Macadamia nut pieces.
Turn tray for even baking if necessary. 
Store in air tight tin. 
Recipe adapted from Macadamia Nut site. They have excellent recipes.

This recipe was published on the Recipe Community. I have made some small but significant changes to suit our tastes and changes to the  method as I always use frozen raspberries. 
500 g. Frozen Raspberries
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Coconut sugar or honey
3 teaspoons of Xylitol
2 Tablespoons of Chia seeds
