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.

Raw Lemon Slice
I'm a real sucker for anything citrus so I created this tasty raw lemon slice that I know you will love.
LEMONS, LEMONS, LEMONS!! I love citrus and in particular anything with lemons. Lucky for me, lemons are in season at the moment and this year and our tree is full of this tasty fruit!
Last year I posted a healthy take on the traditional Lemon Slice, and previously a Lemon and Coconut slice. So this year I wanted to experiment with a raw lemon slice and I have a found a winner. AND it is one the whole family enjoys. Read More
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!
This is my “go to” favourite treat that I make on a fairly regular basis. Its another super simple healthy recipe and definitely satisfies those sweet / chocolate cravings. Its something I always freeze and therefore have on hand for when those 3pm pangs hit.
This popular treat that my whole family enjoys is free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar so a great allergy friendly treat. 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. The waiting is the most difficult thing about this recipe as you just want to dig in!! 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
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.
An easy overnight Bircher recipe, perfect for the warmer months.
I have a couple of go to breakfast options in the morning and this is definitely one of them especially on those days when I don’t have much time in the morning. It only requires a small amount of preparation the night before and its good to go in the morning topped with your choice of fresh fruit.
This recipe is a great combination of plant based protein, essential fats and complex carbohydrates which are slowly digested keeping you fuller for longer. The soaking of the ingredients also means it is much easier to digest helping to increase nutrient absorption. Much better than a store brought cereal for breakfast which is often full of added sugar and refined carbohydrates with minimal nutrients.
Easy Berry Smoothie
An easy snack or breakfast on-the-go when you are short on time.
I always love to whip up a smoothie when I’m short of time or on the go. And Berry smoothies are definitely my ‘go to.’
This creamy berry smoothie is so quick and easy and super tasty.
You can use fresh of frozen berries. I usually use frozen berries. Frozen berries also result in a much thicker smoothie which I like.
