Raw Chocolate Fudge
A decadent and crunchy fudgey slice full of chocolatey goodness. Free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Make yourself a batch here!

The slice requires no baking and barely any preparation as it’s predominantly made in a blender but you do have to take into consideration the chilling time.

A healthy kids snack or lunchbox treat. These muffins are full of wholesome ingredients and still ensures the kids tummy's are satisfied. They're also a great snack for the big kids (I love them too)!
Stella loves muffins and I would assume that most other kids do. We often make this recipe at home so I thought I should share it to all the other mums who’s kids also love muffins. And its not just for kids, its for the big kids too – my husband and I also enjoy snacking on these. So they don’t seem to last very long.
AND they are also fun to make with the kiddies. Stella absolutely loves making these with me, she’s turning into a real foodie. Read More
Cacao & Coconut Granola
My Cacao and Coconut granola is chocolatey, crunchy, full of superfoods and super simple to make! This breakfast has definitely become a family favourite in our household
I love making my own granola. And whipping up your own granola is super simple and its such a great alternative to many of the store bought granola’s which are full of unnecessary unhealthy ingredients.
The best thing about making your own granola is choosing exactly what you like to go in it and you can use what you have on hand so you can change it up each time you make it.
This recipe is full of superfoods and healthy fats. The base ingredient is raw activated buckwheat. A great gluten free option full of fibre, protein and vitamins. I have chosen to use coconut oil which is nutritious and has a light flavour – feel free to mix this up with another healthy alternative. 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.

Just like the traditional crumble but without the sugar, butter and white flour – a healthier but still very tasty alternative. Read More
Healthier ANZAC Biscuits
A healthy, allergy friendly version of the classic ANZAC Biscuit.
A very important Kiwi (and Australian) holiday is coming up this Wednesday – ANZAC Day. A healthy version of the classic ANZAC biscuit is a great way to celebrate this significant day.
For those of you not living in NZ or Australia, ANZAC Day occurs on the 25th of April each year. It is a national day of remembrance that honours those who have served and died in all wars. Read More
Salted Caramel and Buckwheat slice
A decadent chocolate, buckwheat and coconut base with a salted caramel layer on top - a tasty and simple treat the whole family will enjoy yet full of nutrient dense ingredients.
I always love experimenting with raw slices and I love coconut, chocolate and caramel. So why not combine all three which go together so well. I created this decadent recipe and also included some very nutrient dense ingredients to boost the appeal even more.
The inclusion of activated Buckwheat means that this recipe is bursting with nutritional benefits. Buckwheat is a gluten free wholegrain and with the increased awareness of gluten free diets, this powerful wholegrain is becoming a very popular ingredient in gluten free recipes and used in many interesting ways. You will find that I often include Buckwheat in a lot of my recipes especially my healthy refined sugar free (RSF) sweet treats.
