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?

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

Fudgy Black Bean and Peanut Butter Brownies

Fudgy Black Bean and Peanut Butter Brownies

by Nicky Skinner March 28, 2018

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

by Nicky Skinner March 14, 2018

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.

Some of you may not be familiar baking with collagen and think that it's just an ingredient in your face cream. However, collagen is also the most abundant protein in our bodies. It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity and when it comes to our joints and tendons, in simplest terms, it’s the “glue” that helps hold the body together. Collagen has many benefits when ingested including improving the health of skin and hair, reduces joint degradation, helps heal 'leaky gut', it can boost metabolism, improves liver health and can protect against cardiovascular disease. Sound like something you want to incorporate into your families diet?

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.
