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 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.
It is Christmas! Officially. We’ve had our festive tag-a-long and I’ve got all the healthy Christmas ideas I could wish for. These recipes, once again span the globe and cover sweet and savory, there are dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan options and there is just a ton of lovely, gorgeous Christmassy cuteness. Rachel from @whole.family.food does the most wonderful job of orchestrating this logistically. She is a star! I’ll link all the @ to the accounts you’ll need to find all the yummy recipes so all you will need to do is click.
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.
Who doesn’t love toffee apples? I know they just shout Autumn to me – Goose fair, Halloween, bonfire night. All the fun stuff. I wanted to create a healthy snack that would make me think of toffee apples…but without the mess. And the guilt. I made this and I’m addicted. It tastes like Autumn. Did I mention it is also gluten-free and refined-sugar free? Hurrah. We are going to a Halloween party in a week or so. I’m taking this as my contribution! Continue reading
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

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
