I’ve tried so many different variations of gluten free gingerbread biscuits and got frustrated when they would turn out either incredibly crumbly or flavourless; oh and don’t even get me started on making your own gluten free flour mix, who knew so many starches existed? So, I set out to make my own. The result? Nutritious and delicious GF Gingerbread that will satisfy the Christmas craving!
There’s nothing better than an ice-cold granita on a hot summer’s day; the only trouble is, so many of them are loaded with added sugar. As always, I set out to create my own and this 100% real food alternative is just as (if not more) delicious than the original.
Not to long ago I asked my sister to recipe test these ‘Taste like ‘Snickers’ Balls for me. She accepted the challenge and I didn’t expect to hear from her for a few days. At 9.45pm that very same night, I get a call from her. I immediately thought something was wrong (she never calls me that late). I answered the phone in a mild state of panic and before I could even get a word in, (with a mouthful of ‘Taste like Snickers Ball’) she says “Oh my god!! These snickers balls have changed my life!!!” and we burst into laughter. Today, this recipe is up on the blog for you to enjoy!
Watching my husband’s football game from the couch this afternoon and decided I would treat myself to one of my latest obsessions: nutritious Chocolate Buckwheat Crackles! You can thank me later 🙂 These delicious treats are rich in nutrients and contain absolutely no nasties. The best bit? Because they are full of real foods, you can actually stop at 1 (OK, maybe 2).
One of my fondest memories of Anzac day is the time spent with my Grandma. Anzac Day meant it was time to make Anzac Biscuits. All 3 of us would crowd around her kitchen bench and help her bake. Whilst in this instance I have strayed a little from my Grandma’s traditional Anzac Biscuits recipe (in a bid to create a healthier alternative), they still taste delicious (and are often gobbled up before I even have a chance to dig in myself). One recipe is made with whole food ingredients and the other is a GF, DF, gooey Paleo alternative. I hope you all enjoy!
When it comes to Easter morning, there is nothing better than a toasty warm hot cross bun, but to be honest, there are so many varieties out there that are full of the stuff I would rather do without. After many failed attempts over the years, this year I promised myself I would get it right. The result? Two versions for paleo and spelt lovers alike, both as equally delicious as each other… enjoy!
The only thing stopping me from turning into one big giant home-made chocolate Easter egg this Easter is the fact that these delicious treats taste that good, that once I offer them to anyone else, they can’t stop either. 100% dairy free, gluten free, crap free paleo Easter treats… ah, yum.
Who said you had to fall off the healthy bandwagon come Christmas Day? No-one! These delicious Paleo White Christmas IncrediBALLS make the perfect treat pre, during or post festive season as well as the perfect gift for those you want to spoil with a little extra love come Christmas day.
Traditionally, ice-cream contained 5 real-food ingredients, today ice-cream can contain anywhere from 15+ ingredients (most of which we can’t pronounce). To avoid these nasty additives, it appears we have two options: spend hours searching high and low for a brand of ice-cream who follows the traditional methods or simply make our own… but who has time for that? You do! That’s right, you! This simple method to making some DELICIOUS ‘ice-cream’ takes less than 2 minutes to prepare and is made using one simple ingredient – no ice-cream maker required.
This delicious spin on traditional ‘bliss balls’ are made using only real-food ingredients. Not only do they contain the nourishing fats of coconut oil or magnesium rich cacao, they are also sweetened with the goodness of fresh organic dates. They are a wonderful treat for guests (no one will ever believe they are good for you), and the perfect snack for when you are traveling or on the run. These are easily one of my most popular recipes to date.
