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.
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.
Coconut, lime and passionfruit. Sounds like an excellent cocktail right? Also makes for a delightful chia pudding. This one is a nice change from whatever your usual mix is and it makes you instantly go.. ahh summer!
I love Weiss bars. My favourite ones are the chocolate and coconut ones you can only by in boxes of four at the supermarket. The fact that these only come in fours is never a problem, they’re delicious I want four, it’s that I can never get them when I most want an icey pole, on the way home from beach for example when you stop at the servo or general store. First world problems right? Well this recipe solves none of those problems, it makes 4, isn’t stocked at my local service station and I can’t find it at the beach. However, it is a slightly ‘healthier’ version and I don’t need to leave the house on a 41 degree day to get one.
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.
The Summer Roll. A delicious nutty, chocolate, coconut, nougat treat. A treat that I’ve recreated in a slightly more nutritious manner… it’s made with nutrient dense seeds, nuts and coconut, far less sugar (just some maple syrup and the chocolate), and contains no wheat or dairy. Also tastes like a dream.
This crumble is the perfect way to use up stone fruit that might be getting a little over ripe or that you have an excess of. It’s also just a delicious was to eat it. It’s completely dairy free and lower in fat and sugar than a regular crumble. As a bonus, it’s easy to make.
This is a delicious breakfast and perfect as we approach summer as it’s both cold and involves summer stone fruit – yum! You can make everything the night before so in the morning you just layer it all together (also known as throwing the topping in your oat jar/container) and you’re ready to run out the door.
How good does this look? What if I told you that it was healthy enough to eat for breakfast – a main meal – and tasty enough to enjoy as a treat? What if I said it would count towards your veg servings for the day? Yep. And it has no avocado in it, and the texture’s a bit like mousse/ a bit like pudding and can be frozen into paddle pop type things. Oh yeah, it’s vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free too.

Nutritious, pretty and yummy breakfasts like this don’t need to be time consuming. I love a breakfast that I can prepare before going to bed and then have it ready to go in the morning when time is more important to me. I want to be the kind of person that can get up really early and exercise, make a delicious breakfast and get to work in time… but I’m not! I find getting up earlier than I have to really hard and my mornings always feel really busy. I tend to eat breakfast at work, so grab and go breakfasts like this are an excellent option.
