This recipe is just awesome! Easy to remember, easy ingredients, easy to make, easy to bake. Just 4 key ingredients - 1 cup of each, quick mix with a spoon and bake for 35 minutes. That's it! And it's just divine served with a quick homemade strawberry sauce and a big dollop of cream.
A few minutes of blitzing in the food processor, 20 minutes in the oven and then topped with a simple chocolate glaze, this Weet-Bix slice is packed full of fibre and is a perfect lunchbox treat for the kidlets.
Tricky Bickies: Choc Chip and Chickpea Cookies
Choc chips and chickpeas! Who woulda thunk it?? Despite being wheat free, gluten free, egg free and nut free - I promise, these choc chip cookies are far from being flavour free. This is a deliciously sneaky way get some extra protein and fibre into the brats' diet. #winning!
Very Nice Veggie Slice
This is another great recipe for using up lots of leftover veggies in the fridge and it's super versatile - it can be eaten hot, warm or cold; as a light meal, afternoon snack and/or lunchbox filler. I love serving this as an easy Saturday lunch with homemade creamy tzatziki and a classic rocket, pear and parmesan salad.
Stone Fruit and Coconut Cake
This is an easy, but impressive looking cake. It requires no machinery - it's all mixed by hand and it uses up any overripe fruit you have hanging about in the fridge. I used a combination of peaches, nectarines and plums; but this cake would work just as well with chopped apple and/or pear.
This Spanish-style omelette (or tortilla) is delicious eaten hot, at room temp or cold. It's also a fab way to pimp up your grazing boards when entertaining - just cut up in cubes and enjoy with a lovely glass of Rioja. Yum!
No-Fuss, Easy-Mix Butter Cake
This easy butter cake is soft and moist and full of sweet, buttery and vanilla-ry goodness. It's a huge hit with both kiddies and adults.... And the best part? No fussy steps - just all the ingredients in one bowl and whipped on high speed for a few minutes. My kind of baking!
Carrot & Chickpea Fluffy Falafel
After making these delicious little morsels once, I made a point of writing down exactly what I did because they were so bloody scrumptious! Light and moist and fluffy - a nice twist on traditional falafel.
I always keep a stash of homemade chicken nuggets in the freezer for those times when I just can't bear the thought of battling fussy kidlets at dinnertime. These nuggets are delicious and have the added bonus that you know exactly what is in them.
Sneaky Banana, Spelt and Yoghurt ‘Pankeletes’
My fussy little critters LOVE pancakes. This version uses spelt flour instead of regular wheat flour to create an alternative that is higher in fibre and protein. This breakfast is a surefire hit in our humble little kitchen almost every weekend.
