Here is a gluten free version of my amaretti cookies. They are soft and chewy and also freeze well. Like all my recipes they are very easy to make and are perfect to end a meal, even in the height of a Maltese heat wave.

All-in-one [no mixer] Banana Date and Oat Cake

Baking and summer do not go together but if you have to bake in this Maltese summer heat, because you may still want a healthier type of cake, this is the answer as it is an all-in-one with no equipment required. Another reason why I like the recipe, as the washing up is minimal. Sugar can be replaced with stevia and apart from the ripe bananas, more sweetness comes from the dates.

Zucchini, mint and feta fritters

I like to make crispy fritters in the oven using hardly any added fats. I lightly coat the fritters and flour and brush them with olive oil to make them crispier.

The mixture easily holds together. I served with tzaziki but if you are in a rush, simply mix some Greek yoghurt with fresh mint, salt and a pinch of dried mint to use as a dipping sauce. I just love these and could eat them every day

Zucchini/courgettes and the round light green marrows that are so common here all make great fritters
