I have so many lemons, I thought it would be nice to use them in a bliss ball. I've tried a lemon cheesecake version from a packet and I didn't really like it. I like a very lemony flavour so I used the zest as well as the juice. I used sunflower seeds as they … Continue reading Lemon bliss balls
I had been dreaming of rice crispy cakes for a few days before I finally made these. They're so simple and fun to eat; perfect for a snack, party food or dessert for all ages! I made a slice rather than cakes, but you can make cakes if you like. These are an occasional treat … Continue reading Dark chocolate rice crispy slice with a twist!
As you probably know by now, I bake all the lunchbox items and we love muffins! These ones are pretty simple, a bit decadent and very yummy. I've used Whittakers 72% cocoa dark Ghana instead of chocolate chips. Only because I actually bought it to eat a few weeks ago and I forgot about it. … Continue reading Banana & dark chocolate muffins
I tried these muffins last week and they didn't rise properly, as I opened the oven door too early or so I thought. After another test batch, I've realized that almond meal doesn't allow muffins to rise and stay risen once they're out of the oven. So these are not your typical 3inches tall muffins. … Continue reading Banana & blueberry muffins

I can't take full credit though as I did get inspiration from a lovely lady on a vegan Facebook group I'm in called 'what kiwi vegans eat'. We love sausage rolls, who doesn't? The crispy, crumbly pastry … Continue reading Vegan sausage rolls!
because who doesn't love pasta!

I got 9 medium sized cookies from this recipe but you could make them smaller. They … Continue reading Buckwheat, oat and date cookies

My eldest son is off to school camp in a couple of weeks and his teacher emailed me the menu. As you can imagine it was filled with meat, dairy, sugar and processed food with a side of coleslaw. He asked what 'we' should do about replacements, so I said I'd prepare a few things. … Continue reading Heavenly chocolate orange muffins
I've been experimenting with finger food for my 10 month old daughter. It's been a bit hit and miss, basically because she's a princess and wants to be fed. No matter what I tried, she had no intention of holding food for herself! I've had so many fails in the kitchen and still do. I'm … Continue reading Surprise baby finger food!
My family has been missing cookies so I had a think and whipped these up today. They took me all of 15 minutes to prepare and they taste really good. They're crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle. The dates give natural sweetness so there's no need for any other sweetener. The boys … Continue reading 3 ingredient cookies!
