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.

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

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
