I made these little treats in a matter of minutes. They contain no added sugar, are gluten free, dairy-free and vegan. They are made from puffed brown rice, nut butter and berries. Four ingredients, a fridge and an hour and you have these little beauties. These bite-sized Β heart treats are perfect for lunchboxes or as a yummy toddler snack. I made these with a heart shaped ice cube tray to make them extra cute – but they would work equally well in a tin or ramekin and cut into squares – just make sure you line it first.

Christmas dinner pie! (gluten-free)

This is an easy peasy, gluten free pie which has a chickpea flour crust. This idea struck me after struggling to use a shop-bought GF flour to make biscuits. I thought about what was in my cupboard and this sprung to mind…was worth a try right? I was surprised what a lovely, crisp pastry it produced; I was half expecting it to be a bit ‘falafel’ like. But it was more like a really light, crisp water crust type pastry. Yum! So, here is my recipe for Christmas dinner pies – perfect for leftovers on boxing day and it’s something the whole family can share and enjoy!

Halloween food for toddlers

Okay, so not JUST for toddlers. But so much of the cool Halloween food in the shops is aimed at older kids and almost all of it is full of sugar, I thought I’d write a post to show that the littler members of the family don’t have to miss out. My sis-in-law is having a Halloween party for a big group of toddlers and their Mama’s so I’ve been playing around with some fun food ideas to take with us.

Halloween biscuits! Refined-sugar free

It is well and truly Autumn. We have cracked out the jumpers and I suddenly have the urge to eat butternut squash, oranges and cinnamon all the time. More importantly! It is Halloween. One of my favourite times of year (as it is the day before my birthday). I have many fond memories of Halloween parties with my little buddies. Continue reading

Sticky-toffee blondies

These sticky toffee blondies are almost refined sugar free. I made them with the little guy in mind but… #realtalk I ate most of them. These have all the best bits of a blondie but with the flavour of sticky toffee pudding. The sweetness comes from date caramel and stewed pears with an optional sprinkle of brown sugar on the top. A perfect treat for a lazy afternoon. It is a super easy traybake style cake so it would be great for bake-sales. Continue reading
