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.

Hi foodies and hello October! We have just returned from a week away in one of our favourite spots, beautiful Knysna. We spent the week in a cosy wood cabin overlooking the Knysna River Valley and it was just the break we needed. Plenty of time spent on our balcony listening to the birds, lots of fresh air, reading, beach time and nature walks – bliss!

Time for something that’s a little bit naughty but nice… the result of an afternoon spent experimenting in my kitchen. I was originally going for a double layered treat, but then I thought why stop at two? And that’s how these triple decker squares of chocolatey coconut yumminess (that also happen to be gluten and refined sugar free) came into existence. Now these no bake chocolate coconut squares are one of my new favourite things!

I love trying out new combinations and recipes using my favourite healthy ingredients. I tend to keep my cupboard stocked with dates and a collection of various nuts and seeds, along with my essentials – oats and honey, so I decided to mix them all together in this delicious muesli bar recipe.

Following on from our puff pastry theme from last week, these moreish savoury tartlets are incredibly easy to put together and totally delicious! Yet another way to use puff pastry and I am not ashamed to say that I always keep a roll of the ready made stuff in the freezer for quick snacks like this.

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)”
