  • Peanut Butter Humus

    Humus middle

    This recipe has been inspired by one of my special one-on-one clients who needs something D/F, G/F, S/F and onion and garlic free to help ease her little girls wind and colic while breastfeeding. I am also always on the look out for different way to get vegetables in to little ones (my boys included). Not to mention I am slightly obsessed with the new super seeded organic oatcakes from Nairns!

  • Healthy Christmas Fudge

    Long edited

    Ingredients


    400g (or 2 small jars (195g) of almond butter


    8 Tb of coconut oil (well softened)


    2 heaped spoons of honey


    1 dash of vanilla essence


    Note: You can easily make this with half the mixture (almond butter can be expensive) you just need a small tin to set (if you want it high) or personally I found when I did a thin layer in the square cake tin it was more than enough as this is quite filling!

    Brownie long

    I love a good brownie....actually I love anything that comes in a 'chocolate' form....so I am always on a mission to create new healthy versions of my fav sweet treats. You just have to look through my dessert blog recipes to know this!. A healthy brownie recipe has been on my 'hit-list' and finally after a few attempts I nailed this on the weekend.

    I really wanted to create a brownie recipe that...
  • Baked Potato Chips

    Chip long edited

    Let us be honest, potato chips are quite irresistible. However, heavy processing of them has effectively rendered a favourite snack or side dish with very little nutrients and a few nasties in there.

    This recipe of mine is not fancy by any measure but turns our humble potato, skin still on into a homemade version which will be gobbled up (by big and little people) in seconds flat!

  • Roasted Cauliflower Dip

    Dip 2

    I love making vegetable dips...I do not get a lot of time now in the kitchen (especially on my own!) but making a vegetable based dip is something which I can whip up fairly easily and is not too delicate for when I have little helpers. This cauliflower dip is nice and light a fluffy so makes for a good lunch box addition. You can easily adjust the other ingredients or add a bit more extra virgin...
  • Egg and Spinach Cups (GF, DF)

    Blog 1

    This is a ridiculously super simple recipe - literally made with three ingredients which is a great way to explore egg (and leafy greens for the matter) for little ones. Some babies struggle with the texture of egg so this is something a bit different which is grain free and dairy free. You can adapt this to include pretty much any vegetable, and feel free to add some herbs as well.

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bombs

    Energy 1

    Now I know I had you at the title of this recipe but I feel that I may just need to reassure you a bit more that these 'energy bombs' are indeed not just enticing but also good for you!

    These are what you would call high fat - they are very much packed full of good fat from peanut butter, coconut oil and butter. There has been a lot of emerging research around the importance of fat - including...
