Raw Caramel Slice

Raw Caramel Slice
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

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.

Fudgy Black Bean and Peanut Butter Brownies

Fudgy Black Bean and Peanut Butter Brownies

I've been experimenting with more legumes in my diet of late (my body seems to have been craving them postpartum!). I used to make a deliciously dense and fudgy black bean brownie, that although claimed to be 'gluten-free' and free from flours, was packed with brown sugar so gave a decent sugar dump!

I thought I'd have a go at making it lower in sugar, so I subbed the cup of brown sugar for a banana (adds a lot of natural sweetness) and a touch of rice malt syrup. It's also egg free and dairy free for all those allergies out there.

I think this version is still as awesome, but won't send the kids into hyperdrive at lunchtime!

Salted Peanut Butter Cups

Salted Peanut Butter Cups

My best friend growing up was originally from the US, so I was introduced to American candy early! When we moved cities away from each other, I missed my supply of Reeces Pieces Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut Butter M&M's. 

Nowadays, these chocolate candies are way too sweet for my taste buds, however, this version you CAN enjoy in moderation, without the trans fats and refined sugar.
