And that’s where Nature’s Source comes in – they have a huge range of delicious granola products to choose from, and many ways to use them as I am about to show you.

Today’s chicken and veg recipe is a fantastic week night supper option. The chicken is cooked in a tamari and honey marinade and served with roasted vegetables, simple and scrumptious.

4 Ingredient homemade chocolate spread (refined sugar free)

Sugar free nutella recipe

 

I am so excited about today’s recipe, and if you are a chocoholic like me then I am sure you will be too! In our house we like to keep a jar of chocolate spread at the back of the pantry cupboard for those occasional Saturday mornings when we have pancakes for breakfast. While I feel it’s ok to enjoy chocolate spread as an occasional treat I like to start the day on a wholesome note and am conscious that said chocolate spread is not the healthiest thing for the family to be eating first thing in the morning! So when I discovered a healthier version that I could make easily at home I was over the moon.

Recipe round up: 12 sweet treats to make with cinnamon

Round of sweet cinnamon recipes.

 

Cinnamon has got to be one of the most delicious and popular spices out there, and I am rather prone to putting it in everything. Aside from its gorgeous flavour it also has several health benefits.

I am betting you have a jar of this wonderful stuff in your pantry, so why not dig it out and try out some of these treats using this versatile spice. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments which cinnamon recipe is your favourite!

Choc nut energy balls (refined sugar free)

Chocolate balls with nuts and coconut.

 

As the mom of two rapidly sprouting munchkins I feel like I hear the words “I’m hungry” constantly. And it’s not as though they are not eating well at meal times, they just seem to burn it all off in no time and before I know it they are back for more. I also have to say that I am getting rather bored of our regular snack repertoire, so I wanted to come up with a delicious nibble that would taste great but also keep them powered up for a while. Enter the energy ball! Continue reading “Choc nut energy balls (refined sugar free)”
