YUMMMMMM! Carrot cake, but healthy? Yes please! I am a big carrot cake fan (thus these carrot cake waffles) and also a big bliss balls fan. These guys came about as a treat to take on the plane with me and a way to use a carrot I had left in the fridge.
If you hadn’t guessed yet chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favourite combinations. You can see this in this smoothie, this cheesecake slice and lots of other things I’ve forgotten to mention. I’m also all about skillet cookies for dessert at the moment, this is the third time I’ve made one in as many weeks. It’s becoming an issue.
Well these were a happy accident! I wanted something sweet and had limited ingredients lying around, was thinking something with raspberry, something with chocolate, something that would take less that ten minutes to make. And tah-dah!
These are freakin’ delicious. Like, ridiculous. I almost made myself sick because I couldn’t stop eating them. Could have also been because I licked some of the drizzled chocolate off the board…hmmm. Plus they are gluten free, dairy free and lower in sugar than the cookie they’re impersonating.
I know that an ANZAC biscuit holds a very special place in Australia and New Zealand’s hearts and I shouldn’t muck with it too much. And I haven’t! This is just an alternative, and macadamia nuts are super Australian. And white chocolate is super New Zealand. Follow my logic carefully on that last part… the Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, meaning the land of the long white cloud, and white chocolate is white like a cloud! Makes total sense. Much Australia. Much New Zealand.
You probably won’t believe me but these muffins have no added sugar. They don’t use dried fruit, only whole fruit. They’re also gluten free, light and fluffy. And yep, they’re filled with peanut butter and raspberry. Other than the peanut butter there’s also no added fat. Oh and they taste REALLY good.
Bliss balls! Bliss balls that are nut free, gluten free and full of fibre and protein. Bliss balls that also taste so much like cookie dough you’ll be thinking about being a little kid eating cookie dough straight from the mixing bowl… or if you’re me, being an adult and eating cookie dough straight from the bowl. Basically my new favourite bliss ball.
These lemon tarts look adorable, are super zesty and have the added bonus of being made with olive oil whole grain pastry and no dairy. They also are refined sugar free, sweetened with maple syrup, and nut free. You could make them with gluten free flour if you would like them to be gluten free but I’ve chosen spelt and wholegrain flour for their rich nutty flavour.
Well that’s a mouthful of a title. And it’s the title of a pretty amazing brownie. Fudgy on the inside with a crisp exterior and full of… vegetables. Yeah you read that last sentence correctly. It’s main ingredient is zucchini and it’s good.
