CHOC MINT COOKIES

Choc mint cookies 8

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.

WHITE CHOCOLATE AND MACADAMIA ANZAC BISCUITS

White Chocolate and Macadamia Anzac biscuits 1  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.

Basically my new favourite bliss ball.

MINI MAPLE LEMON TARTS

Mini Maple Lemon Tarts

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.

YOGHURT AND BERRY MUFFINS

I love using oats in baking, their higher protein content makes them so filling, in a long lasting way that almost allows me to stop at just one of whatever I’ve made. Almost. These muffins are made with lovely wholesome ingredients and have just enough sweetness to feel like a treat.

BEETROOT, SPINACH AND GOATS CHEESE GALETTE

All the things about this tart make me very happy. Earthy, sweet beetroot, bright green spinach, the pretty beetroot greens and the creamy goats cheese. This is a fairly classic combination, but I’ve included a few tweaks in this recipe to include more vegetables and use some of my favourite things. The result is a nutty, sweet and salty tart that I love for lunch or dinner.
