Ginger & Lemon Crunch

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

An impressive healthy treat which is super simple to make, no one will know it was so easy. Also makes a great homemade edible gift. Gluten free, dairy free and also a nut free option.


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

Its Feijoa season in NZ, and this recipe is a great way to make the most of this tasty delicious fruit. Another quick and easy family favourite.


As promised, here is a delicious FEIJOA recipe to try this Feijoa season.  I love feijoa’s and at home we are lucky to have two feijoa tress which means we have an abundance of feijoa’s to get through each year.

Feijoa’s are only around for about 3 months usually from mid-March so you have to get in quick and make the most of them with various delicious feijoa recipes. And if you can’t get through all your feijoa’s, they also freeze well. Read More
