+ Healthy Sweet Snacks

Raw Snickers Bar


Sometimes I get a craving for a certain flavour combination and this is fundamentally how I develop a recipe. To be honest, I’m generally not a huge peanut fan, but I have recently had a hankering (as well as numerous requests from Snickers fans), so this is what I’ve come up with. Now this recipe started as three, Read More

Baked Berry Custard

Always keen for a shortcut, I love creating meals that you can quickly assemble then throw in the oven, set the timer and forget. Like most mums I juggle a million of things so I really don’t have the time or patience to stand over the stove stirring or working my way through loads of steps Read More

Rhubarb Ginger Crumble

Rhubarb is one of those fruits (actually technically a vegetable), you either love or hate. I’m grateful my whole family love it as it is one of those nostalgic foods that takes me back to cooking with my nan. Though she was a whole lot more traditional in her use of it, I like to Read More

Healthy Baked Pancakes

My family loves pancakes – lets face it, the batter is easy to whip-up, but it’s a real pain to stand over the stove flipping them so that they are cooked just right, especially when you are making them for a big group. Because I love a shortcut, I’ve been working on a batter that Read More

Mint Chocolate Fudge

Before kids, my husband and I lived in Ireland and made many life-long, dear Irish friends. After we left Ireland we backpacked through South America where we decided to ‘just get married.’  Now when you’re travelling, you have no idea what the date is, so we were really thrilled when we realised that we just Read More

Healthy Lamingtons

What better way to celebrate Australia Day than with healthy lamingtons?  I’m really not a fan of traditional lamingtons – probably because I like a sweet with some substance. So when I set out to create a healthy lamington it really was rather simple because I already have two basic cake recipes that I just Read More

Easy, Healthy Cake Recipe (with lots of flavour variations)

During school holidays, I tend to bake a few more nut based recipes.  This is an easy, healthy cake recipe that I just keep coming back to – one because it is so delicious and two because it is so versatile (vanilla one day, citrus or chocolate the next).  I’m so excited to share this Read More

Rhubarb and Raspberry Roly-Poly

This Rhubarb and Raspberry Roly-Poly is one of my favourite winter weekend or dinner party desserts.  I love the combination of raspberries and fresh rhubarb rolled in a soft pie-like dough.  Serve with double cream or coconut yoghurt (my preference), though the rest of my family say vanilla bean ice-cream is ‘a must.’ This is Read More

Healthy Apple Pie – rustic style (with gluten, grain, dairy & egg free versions)

As the cooler months are upon us and apple season is in full swing, what better time to make a comforting, yet healthy apple pie?  Apple Pie is my husbands all time favourite dessert, even though he rarely eats sweet things.  But let’s face it, it can be a bit time consuming to make. My Read More

Healthy Chocolate cookie recipe (aka Oreos, Mint Slice or Tiny Teddies)

This healthy chocolate cookie recipe can form the base for a healthy version of an oreo, mint slice or you can even use it to make tiny teddies (you’ll just need to source a tiny teddy cookie cutter).  It is a great, additive-free option for kids that are accustomed to a sweet treat in their Read More

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“Thank you very much for your awesome website & facebook page posts, you have motivated & inspired me heaps!” Fiona

“Just discovered your site 3 weeks ago, its been a great help with kids lunches for back to school, thanks so much!” Ange

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
