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.

Vanilla & Chocolate Crackle
This recipe will bring back childhood memories! I loved Rice Bubble slice when I was growing up so I created a healthy alternative that tastes just as good. This recipe is free from refined sugar, gluten, dairy and nuts. I hope you love it as much as we do! x
I’m sure most of you remember the traditional Rice Bubble slice from when you were growing up…..? I definitely do, especially at birthday parties. We all loved it when we were kids. So I set out to create a healthy alternative that tasted just as good so the kids could enjoy it! The traditional slice was made up of sugar, butter, honey and rice bubbles so I have substituted these and opted for whole food ingredients that result in a slice that kids both big and small will love. The perfect wee snack.
This slice is another super simple recipe. The kids will love helping to prepare it, its a great lunch box snack and its also super tasty – we all enjoy it in our household. Read More

Raw Bounty Bar
Tasty, creamy and coconut-y goodness covered in homemade raw chocolate. A tasty and healthy treat - perfect to indulge yourselves!!
I know I’ve mentioned it numerous times before but I LOVE coconut. I use it in so many of my recipes and I don’t know what my life would be like without my coconut!! I’m sure I have it on a daily basis – both in savoury and sweet dishes. Stella is also taking after me and always gets the thredded coconut out of the pantry and as a result loves my coconut treats I make.
I grew up eating the sugar filled, processed Bounty Bars and decided that I’d recreate a healthier version of these – I do love recreating healthier versions of popular treats. This recipe also ticks all the right boxes – gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, egg free and of course super tasty! Read More
A healthy take on the classic Lemon Slice.
I think I’ve mentioned this before but I really LOVE lemons! And lucky for me, lemons are in season as its winter in NZ. Our lemon tree is full of lemons which means our fruit bowl is over-flowing with lemons waiting for me to incorporate into more tasty and healthy recipes that I can share with you all.
I used to love the classic Lemon slice so I decided to recreate this dish into a healthier version which was still super tasty. I removed the sugar, butter and refined flours and replaced these with healthier alternatives which resulted in a healthier yet still very delicious Lemon Slice which got the tick of approval from the family.

Ginger & Lemon Crunch
A quick and easy, tasty slice using two flavours that complement each other so well - ginger and lemon.
This recipe uses one of Hunter Gatherer Gourmet’s Paleo cake mixes for the base – The Ginger cake mix. I have tweaked this in order to make more of a crunchy ginger base (vs. a softer cake base). The best thing about this recipe (and these mixes) is that you will not be able to tell that this is a healthy, unprocessed and refined sugar free crunchy ginger base.
I combined this with a creamy raw lemon icing which includes the addition of a lemon essential oil which takes this flavour to the next level. Of course if you don’t have lemon essential oils on hand, I have provided alternative options. But I would highly recommend the addition of this oil!” Read More

This Chocolate Bark looks amazing, yet is super simple to make. Something you can quickly whip up when you know someone is popping round at short notice and you want something to impress them with. It is also a good option for a decadent homemade edible gift (made with love) that again, is sure to impress. Or something to take to a dinner party when you’re on dessert or if the hostess says “don’t bring anything.” Read More
