Oat & Sunflower Butter Cookies

The incidence of nut allergies seems to be on the rise. I see it at work as a nurse with the increasing children of children who come into the hospital with degrees of allergic reactions, from mild rashes to full-blown anaphylactic shock.

Recipe of the Month

Recipe of the Month

by Nicky Skinner August 27, 2018

I don't know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided nobody should have to miss out and decided to healthify it.

Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It's adaptable to your own tastes and I've tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

by Nicky Skinner August 14, 2018

Featuring my favourite oats and banana, I had a hankering for something chewy and substantial with my morning cuppa the other day, so I whipped up these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

I adapted a lactation cookie recipe I made on repeat a few months ago when Hope was born. Pulled out the brewers’ yeast and flax meal and added some ground chia and almond butter for healthy fats.

Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites

Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites

by Nicky Skinner July 13, 2018

I whipped up these protein-packed bites using NuZest Chocolate Clean Lean protein powder, but you can use any kind of protein powder you like.

As you can see, my chocolate coating skills leave a lot to be desired, and I've since had recommended to insert a toothpick and roll the bite in the chocolate to get an even coverage all around. Try that and let me know how you go.

Is there anything better than cookies and cream? Maybe chocolate cookies and cream!

I was feeling creative and this slice just kind of came into being, but I'm not sorry because it really works!  This raw decadent slice is smooth and creamy with a delightful crunch from the cacao nibs.

Rice & Quinoa Crackers with Pumpkin Hummus

Rice & Quinoa Crackers with Pumpkin Hummus

by Nicky Skinner June 12, 2018

After much indulgence on the blog of late, I decided a savory option was in need.

Store-bought crackers and hummus can be full of nasties, including vegetable oils, refined flours and various additives and preservatives, so why not make your own?

Made with whole food ingredients, these crackers stay firm and crispy for weeks in an air-tight container!

Perfect to whip out after school for the peckish kiddos and a rather eye-pleasing addition to any antipasto platter if you're entertaining.

Raw Caramel Slice

Raw Caramel Slice

by Nicky Skinner June 03, 2018

I realised the other day I didn't have a Caramel Slice recipe on the website (despite making this one numerous times) and in my humble opinion, every good website needs a Caramel Slice recipe ;) I’ve remade this classic decadence using only wholesome and natural ingredients, as I always found the original very sickly sweet. Just me?

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Raspberry Muffins

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Raspberry Muffins

by Nicky Skinner May 13, 2018

I made these after craving some of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread one afternoon. I love muffins with little bursts of fruit flavor, so added some raspberries and they took these to the next level!

Gluten free, egg free, dairy free and refined sugar-free, these got a rave review from hubby who said they were literally the best thing I've ever made! High praise indeed.

Chocolate Chickpea Cookies

Chocolate Chickpea Cookies

by Nicky Skinner May 08, 2018

I've been getting feedback from many parents that their little ones are allergic/intolerant to eggs, so I decided to have a go at some egg-free baking.

The good thing about these deliciously soft and chewy cookies are that they're also dairy free, grain free and refined sugar-free too!

With a base of chickpeas, they pack a plant-based protein punch and are a good source of fiber, iron and zinc. 

Only 6 ingredients, all blended in a food processor so no need for multiple bowls, these really come together in a matter of minutes!

Give them a go and let me know what you think!

Sweet Potato Brownie with nut butter icing

Sweet Potato Brownie with nut butter icing

by Nicky Skinner April 25, 2018 2 Comments

These brownies are so delicious, full of vitamin A and plenty of fiber, but without the sugar hit. I've tested it myself, and people never guess they're loaded with veg! (except my husband, who knows me too well!).  I often put an extra kumara on the bottom rack of the oven when I'm cooking a roast for dinner, specifically so I can make these the next da
