Lemon Slice

I am obsessed with citrus desserts. I rarely have dessert or sweet things but when I do I just love a lemony treat! Or cheese. But that’s another story… I had been craving this type of slice for so long and couldn’t find out there what I was after – something free of gluten, refined sugar & grains and something that didn’t crumble. So I created it, and I know you are going to love it! ♥ Continue reading

Chocolate Brownies

Anytime my kids ask me for brownies I’m right on to Google and always find a ton of white flour + white sugar recipes. I wanted to create an alternative that was a cinch to make and required no fussy prep. This recipe can be made easily with simple, whole food ingredients that you have on hand so here it is – 6 ingredients and no fuss!

The added bonus is the powerful antioxidant kick of the cacao. Cacao is ‘choc’ full of flavonoids which act as natural antioxidants. Cacao is richer in antioxidants than red wine, gogi berries and green tea and is also rich in magnesium. Continue reading

Raspberry Yoghurt Slice

I have a lot to thank my cravings for. I knew exactly what I wanted with this slice and it took a few goes to get it right, but it’s here! And it’s so delicious ♥ The tartness of the raspberries and yoghurt combines beautifully with the sweetness of the slice base. It’s gorgeous for adults, guests and the kids will absolutely love it too. Continue reading

Berry Muffins

I feel like a bit of a cheat posting this recipe as they are actually a variation on the Coconut Apple Cupcakes I created a while back. But I’ve found myself making these so much – more than the apple ones, and the kids love them so I thought it would be a handier reference for everyone. Also I wish there was a way to describe just how good they smell baking! You will have to make them yourself just on this factor alone! Continue reading

Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets

My 13 year old daughter just said to me, “Mum, these are SO good.”

I’ll take that! These are such a great first step for a really fussy eater and they’re one of the first steps I took to covert my ultra picky eating eldest son to a whole food diet (we’re talking 5-foods-only-level of picky eating). Get rid of the crappy, expensive frozen nugs for these instead – once you’ve nailed these and the kids are loving them then you can move on to the next introduction. I guess these nuggets are like a gateway whole food! Continue reading
