Healthy Anzac Biscuits {vg, gf, lf}

Today is Anzac Day. And without going into all the historical intricacies, for the purposes of this blog, this means Anzac biscuits! Traditional Anzac biscuits, albeit tasty, are far from healthy as they contain butter (or far worse – margarine), refined sugar and white flour. Healthy Anzac biscuits? It seems like an impossible quest, but you canRead more

Clean Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies {vg, gf, nf, sf}

Clean Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies
Clean Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies

My toddler has a pronounced sweet tooth and it is almost impossible to walk her past the cookie and biscuit aisle unscathed. While Tim Tams, Anzacs and co. might be an effective temporary solution to placate a whingeing 2-year old and prevent a mortifying tantrum, they aren’t exactly what the doctor ordered. Needless to say, thisRead more

Healthy Coco Pops Squares

Of all my unhealthy childhood favourites, sugary breakfast cereals definitely top the list. And of all breakfast cereals coco pops was always the winner.

Raw vegan desserts generally contain a lot of rawRead more

Carrot Cake Bliss Balls {vegan, gluten free, nut free, refined sugar free}

The other day, I got upset at my hubby for buying expensive Medjool dates instead of those dry, hard, brittle dates from the drygoods section that are indefinitely cheaper. (When you have a midget and a mortgage, you tend to worry about financials.) How wrong of me! One bite and it was bliss all the way.Read more

Almost Fat Free Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

I apologise for that very lengthy title, but I just couldn’t NOT share all the attributes of this marvellous creation of mine. In fact, I should have added moist, fudgy, scrumptious, dreamy, chocolatey, rich, moreish, delightful, satisfying, luxurious, decadent, silky… I wanted to make a cake for my daughter’s birthday, and in my research aboutRead more
