I love overnight oats, they are so simple, healthy and as a mum of two, it is a brekkie I can make the night before. Win win!
Oats are so good for you, they are full of fibre, can help lower bad cholesterol, control blood pressure and keep you feeling fuller for longer. And that is just the benefits of the oats, not to mention the benefits of the nuts and seeds you can add to your overnight oats.
So needless to say, overnight oats are a great healthy breakfast option that even kids love.
This warming drink not only tastes delicious but is also full of ingredients that your body will love! Plus you will most likely have the ingredients in your pantry.
Turmeric has become a superfood of late and that is for good reason, it is so good for helping with inflammation in your body and the added cinnamon is great to help stabilise your blood sugar levels. Also, turmeric needs black pepper so the body can absorb all the benefits of turmeric, so make sure you add that to your latte.
Need I say more?!
This is definitely one of my favourite breakfasts, and like most things is usually full of refined sugar and white bread, so I have done a healthy twist on this classic breakfast dish.
You can get creative with your toppings or you can go the old favourites of strawberries and maple syrup like I have here.
Muesli bars are a staple item in any kids lunch box or even big kids. But did you know that one muesli bar can contain up to 7 teaspoons of sugar? Healthy they say!!
Grown men should only have 9 teaspoons of sugar per day, so they can have one muesli bar and not much else.
So I wanted to show you how easy and simple making your own muesli bars are for you and your kids.
One bowl is all you need and you can add whatever you want into them, so get the kids involved and have fun making these each week.
Put your hand up if you love a good muffin? Me!!!! But did you know the muffins you buy in your typical cafe are FULL of refined sugar? Not cool.
The other morning I decided to put together my own little creation which is refine sugar free and dairy free for some friends that were coming over for brunch, they were a hit!
Who doesn't love pancakes? Especially on a Sunday morning! This weekend I felt like pancakes and decided to try my own recipe to see what it would turn out like and they were delicious.
Pancake goodness with no guilt attached.
It has been a while since I last added a recipe, but today I got experimenting in the kitchen once again. I felt like chocolate but was all out of my usual stash of Loving Earth blocks and with a little bub now it isn't as easy to just 'pop down the street'. So I decided to try my hand at making my own chocolate...and boy is it yummy!!
1/3 cup coconut oil
80g melted butter
2tbs raw cacao powder
2-3tbs rice malt syrup (depending on how sweet you want it)
Add nuts and dried fruit to your taste...I used almonds, cashews, sultanas, cranberries and raisins.
1. Put the nuts and dried fruit into a food processor and pulse until they are chopped into smaller chunks.
2. Line a baking tin with baking paper. Spread the fruit and nut mixture over the base of the tin.
3. Heat a saucepan on medium heat. Melt the butter and coconut oil. Once melted take off the heat.
4. Add in the cacao and rice malt syrup to the melted oil & butter mixture and stir until combined.
5. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the fruit and nuts in the tin.
6. Pop into the freezer for 30 minutes or until set.
7. Remove from the freezer and then pop it into the fridge for a further hour. Then you can slice and pop into an air tight container, or enjoy right away.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and please let me know if you make it, I would love to hear how it went and what you thought of it.
