Sweet Treats

Raw mango-nana cheesecake

 

Who doesn’t love a good cheesecake?!

How about if I told you that this one is not only delicious, but is good for you at the same time!! With no refined sugars, gluten-free, dairy-free, the goodness of cashews, coconut oil, mangoes and bananas – this is the perfect dessert. Or is good enough to eat for breakfast :).

HNC Bliss Balls – Two ways

Bliss balls. Little balls of bliss. Sweet little treats that are good for you!

There are heaps of different versions of bliss balls out there, here are two of my favorites: ‘Chocolate, Coconut and Chia balls’, and ‘Lemon, Coconut Chia balls’. They are easy to whip up and use ingredients I always have in my pantry. Once you get the hang of them, you just add in anything you have on hand.

HNC Crunchy Nut Mix

I’ve gone nuts. Completely nuts for nuts! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten as much of them as I have since we began the transition to wholefoods. They are just a perfect snack that fills you up.

Banana and date loaf

This is my husband’s recipe. He doesn’t bake very often, but lately he has been known to commandeer the kitchen for a long time on a Sunday afternoon while he bakes this beauty. He is so exact with his measurements, it drives me crazy!! He does though, to his credit, produce a beautiful banana and date loaf every single time that rises to perfection. He enjoys his banana and date loaf for morning teas throughout the week.

Sultana almond cookies

healthy snacks

These are quick, easy and most importantly – delicious! Inspired by The Healthy Chef’s Chocolate chip cookie, I’ve created a different version with the goodness of coconut, LSA and sultanas. LSA is made from ground linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds and can be found in most health food aisles of the supermarkets. It adds a nutritional punch adding in healthy omega 3 fats promoting healthy heart and brain function, minerals such as calcium, zinc and magnesium.
