Hi I just purchased the pinch of nom book but the turquoise one, can you tell me if the recipes you are sharing are from the orange/red book by any chance as these aren’t in the one I have 🙂
Thanks

    Hi Stacey. With the exception of a few website favourites, most recipes in our books are brand new and don’t appear on the website. All the recipes we share on our social media channels will have a link taking your to the recipe on the website. Was there a particular recipe you were interested in?

Do you make the ready brek up to use it, or is it just the powder? Thanks

Reply

    SharonThursday 28th May 2020

    Hi Ellie, you use the Ready Brek as dry powder. In step 1, you mix it with the eggs, milk, vanilla and sweetener.

Hi, this recipe states that on WW purple it is 1sp, but for 40g of ready brek on WW purple (searching on the WW app) it’s 4sp, which would make the recipe 5sp? Please can this be clarified?

    Emma TThursday 19th September 2019

    Hi Maire,

    It sounds like they needed cooking a little longer – try a lower heat for a bit more time ????

    Hope that helps!
