Recipe of the Month

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

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

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 2 min read

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.

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?

As a child, CookieTime Apricot and Chocolate Bumper Bars were my favourite!

I used to save my pocket money and buy them at the school tuck shop. Not only were they delicious but teenager me thought they were a healthier alternative to chocolate bars.
