LSA-Lemon-Berry Cake with Coconut Cream (Low Sugar)

This is so lovely. This is my first layer cake. ♥ Pretty proud of it actually. Plus; low sugar, low oil. I’m currently experimenting with cakes to see just how low the sugar and oil can go and just how much healthy can be jammed into them without losing the cakey texture and flavour that we love….

Raw Olive Sunburgers with Salad & Basil Pesto

Mmmm, olives are my new thing. I hated them until 2 weeks ago and now I’ve formed a new habit. I enjoy big, juicy kalamata olives. This is super olivey; only for the brave. In terms of raw food this is a big meal! So it might be enough to keep you going all day!…

Raw-ish Banoffee Pie

Banoffe Pie is notoriously rich and sweet so I really suggest berries here to offset the sweetness. The toffee sauce is next level; count on it. This didn’t take that long to make, I probably spent about 20 minutes in the kitchen.  Dates soften in roughly 5 minutes in boiled water.  Biscuit layer: Some LSA…

3-ingredient Gluten-free Corn Fritters for Kids

These are yummy. Served here with plum sauce they’re also nice with sweet chili. You can fancy them up a bit by adding coriander and healthy stuff, and eat them with a salad if you want to pretend like you’re doing good. This is also an excellent meal for poor students who find themselves with…

Iced Cookies

I was feeling a bit stressed by a monster week and an unwell Little Bear, so I took some time out and baked some cookies. They’re really crunchy and hard. Iced. Mm.  INGREDIENTS 3 tablespoons golden syrup 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup margarine 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 & 1/2 to 2 cups flour Dash…

Raw Passionfruit-Macadamia Biscuits With Strawberry & Lavender Spice

This is my first experimentation with lavender. It’s a strong flavour so use sparingly. These cookies are lovely and my 1 year old son loves them too. Don’t forgo the strawberry, that’s the freshness! Note this person being wooed like putty. And THEY’RE PRETTY. BISCUIT INGREDIENTS 1.5 cups coconut 1/2 cup sliced almonds 3 teaspoons…

Better Banana Cake

I have a recipe up already, but this one is better. It’s just… correct. Topped with chocolate butter-cream frosting. This is not “low in sugar, low in fat”. This is Just Good Cake. INGREDIENTS 2 cups flour 1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/3 teaspoon salt 1 cup brown sugar 1/4…

Rhubarb and Apple Crumble

This is probably a rather healthy desert – I mean, it’s pretty much muesli disguised as pudding! (Although, probably anything could disguise itself as pudding if it sprinkled a bit of sugar on itself). With lots of fruit, seeds, and oats, it does provide a chunk of nutrition. And sugar… for energy? The trick with…

Gluten-free Chocolate Cupcakes

Normally gluten-free cooking baking is associated with heaviness, toughness and not giving the delightful crumb you get with baking with gluten-based flours; however, I’ve been playing around with GF baking for a couple of years now, learning little tricks and secrets to get results which trick people into thinking that you have used gluten. After…

Chocolate-dipped Pretzels

Pretzels are so weird and foreign, but such a stupidly obvious snacking solution So anyway, on Dino Day, Mum whips out these sneakily little fuckers. Boy they’re delicious. I awoke at 8am on Boxing Day with a burning desire to recreate the snacking sensation. Mum walks in and witnesses the frenzied kitchen-cum-sweat-shop of chocolate-pretzel manufacture….
