Nut Free Chocolate Bliss Balls
This is a great recipe for kids lunch boxes. A healthy treat and great snack for the whole family. Perfect for those Mama's sending their kiddies to kindy/school where there are nut-free policies. This recipe is free from refined sugar, gluten, dairy and nuts. I hope you love it as much as we do! x
Now that the kiddies are back to school or kindy, its time for us Mums to get back to making lunchboxes. Like many kindy’s, Freddie’s centre has a nut free policy. Going nut free can be hard for parents. For me, most of the snacks/healthy treats that I usually make for the kids contain nuts. For those in a gluten free household, I’m sure this is the case for you too. I also haven’t yet come across nut-free bliss balls that I can purchase, but lets be honest, they’re much better home-made! So back into the kitchen I went to make a nut-free bliss ball recipe. This recipe is great for those nut-free schools/kindys and also for those families where there are nut allergies.

The perfect wee snack.

This week is Coeliac Awareness Week so I wanted to share a post about my experience with Coeliac disease and to share a bit more information around this disease in terms of what it is, tips and my favourite gluten free foods and cafes. I hope you find it helpful.
I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease in my mid 20s and I did think my life was over – that was after the doctor had to explain to me exactly what Coeliac disease was and then what gluten was. Once I got my head around this, I just thought, no more of my favourite foods. But on the plus side, would changing my diet really make me feel better….? Read More
