Cashew Blender Bread

Cashew Blender Bread

by Nicky Skinner December 13, 2017

It has a perfect soft spongy texture and holds together brilliantly for sandwiches, but is also amazing toasted for breakfast.

It contains protein from eggs and healthy fats from the nuts, topped with avocado and tomato, it really is a complete meal.

Marshmallow Slice

Marshmallow Slice

by Nicky Skinner December 07, 2017

Did you know gelatin improves gut health and digestion, protects our joints, improves sleep quality, lifts mood and cognitive ability, improves skin health, heart health, maintains strong bones and helps you feel full longer?

I know! Quite amazing! I'm sure you don't need any more reasons to try it for yourself!

Chocolate Peppermint Slice

Chocolate Peppermint Slice

by Nicky Skinner November 29, 2017

I adore peppermint anytime of year, but there's something about the flavour that does remind me of Christmas time. It's probably the candy canes we used to sneak from the tree before the day or the after-dinner mints we used to have at our Grandparents. Whatever the reason, I thought a Peppermint Slice was rather appropriate this time of year!

Belgium Biscuits

Belgium Biscuits

by Nicky Skinner November 16, 2017

Another Grandma Burrell (Dad's mum) special, the Belgium biscuit was a real treat and much loved by all the cousins at family get-togethers.

Two delicious cinnamon biscuits sandwiched with raspberry jam, topped with pink icing and jelly crystals! Fiddly to make, but that never worried Grandma!

Afghans

Afghans

by Nicky Skinner November 12, 2017

Grain-free and refined sugar-free, these biscuits don't contain the usual cornflakes, flour, and sugar that the original recipe calls for, but give the same decadent satisfaction and are a real crowd pleaser. Plus they're so pretty and not as complicated as they appear!

Shortbread

Shortbread

by Nicky Skinner November 02, 2017

Who doesn't love shortbread? Buttery velvety and completely dunkalicious!

I have memories of making it with my mum (and eating half the mixture raw truth be told!), of molding the shortbread into a log and having to patiently wait until it cooled to slice and bake.

Here's a healthier, grain-free alternative to the traditional Scottish favorite

Gingernuts

Gingernuts

by Nicky Skinner October 26, 2017

They say ginger is fabulous for morning sickness and since I've been getting some peculiar second trimester nausea, I thought I'd try to recreate the traditional Griffins Gingernuts which are made using traditional white flour, white sugar and vegetable oil.

Coconut Coffee Cake

Coconut Coffee Cake

by Nicky Skinner October 20, 2017

One for grown ups this week! Despite what the name suggests, there's no caffeine in this cake, just delicious nutty cinnamon swirls.

Perfect along side your coffee or tea, this cake can also be made without the topping for a simple snack, but in my opinion needs the extra layer for depth of flavour.

Homemade Shrewsbury's

Homemade Shrewsbury's

by Nicky Skinner October 10, 2017 1 Comment

I don't know about your family, but in mine, the Griffins Shewsbury's were always one of the first to go when we'd get to choose a biscuit from the biscuit jar.

We all used to have our own ways to eat them, my brothers would often eat the middle first, but I always nibbled around the outside and saved the jam bit for last.

Chocolate Macaroons

Chocolate Macaroons

by Nicky Skinner October 05, 2017

I'm always seeing people spending over $10 on one of those little packets of 5 tiny Little Bird Macaroons, and as delicious as they are, many of us just can't afford upwards of $2 per treat, so I set about to try and recreate a cheaper sugar free version.

Many of you have also been requesting some nut free baking inspiration and these are perfect for nut free lunch boxes (as many schools seem to be going this way due to the increase in nut allergies).

Blueberry Louise Slice

Blueberry Louise Slice

by Nicky Skinner September 27, 2017

Louise Slice is such a kiwi classic that I had to give it a healthy spin!

This version is very reminiscent of the original but without the sugar filled jam and flour filled cake.  

The perfect accompaniment with your cup of tea, sure to impress at any morning tea shout and also travels well in your bento to school!

Ginger Slice

Ginger Slice

by LunchBox Inc. September 12, 2017 1 Comment

I don't know about you, but ginger slice definitely brings back memories from childhood and it's one of the first things I'm drawn too in cafe cabinets when I eat out.

Packed with sugar, butter and white flour, the traditional version is less than ideal for us, however with a few tweaks and additions here and there, this recipe is sure to satisfy that ginger slice craving in addition to nourishing with nuts, good fats and uses a fructose free sweetener.
