A spooky savoury snack for Halloween…
Broccoli and Rice Cakes is back. And we’re baking! In celebration of A-L’s 3rd birthday, this recipe uses three types of strawberry to make a fruity and flavoursome treat. Happy Birthday A-L xx
In search of healthy savoury snacks for me and my toddler, I was inspired to make this savoury version of a granola. It uses store cupboard ingredients and nutritional yeast flakes (which I came across in my new year’s cupboard cleaning mission) to make a snack that can be nibbled on at any time of day. It is highly nutritious and pleased both me and my little lady.
Using left-over ingredients from my Christmas pudding, these mini treats are a ‘healthier’ festive treat. They are extremely quick to make, with no added sugar and no cooking required. The best bit is that your little people will love to help make, decorate/ sabotage, and eat these treats. Happy Christmas!
Taking advantage of small children’s obsession with ice cream, I came up with these carrot popsicles as a sweet, sticky and healthy imitation of an ice lolly. Also known as ‘braised carrots on a stick’, these popsicles are quick to prepare and bring a bit of fun to vegetable eating. What happened when I served these to my daughter (and her stuffed animal friends)?…
A recipe developed out of frustration, curiosity and a love of halloumi, these fritters are a great way to use up a supply of kohlrabi in the summer months.
These savoury muffins are a great way to sneak some veggies into your children’s snack-time. They are cheesy, incredibly more-ish and kids seem to love them (parents are also partial to a few).
Here is a version of the classic date slice: juicy dates sandwiched between two layers of oaty, buttery crumble but without refined sugar and with added linseed goodness. This slice is a wholesome treat to delight the little people and other dried fruit enthusiasts.
This is a more wholesome version of the classic children’s favourite, the rice crispy cake. Just as easy to make, this tahini and honey recipe is a clear winner: the crispy cakes are chewy, moist and sticky like the traditional recipe but with the added nutritional benefit of sesame seeds and no refined sugar or other nasties. The whole family thinks they are awesome!
This is my kind of fruit loaf: jam packed with juicy berries, no added sugar or fat, super easy to make and soooo good with a cup of tea. The recipe has a secret ingredient which gives the loaf a wonderfully sweet and fruity tang. Your little people will love this loaf too, satisfying even the most raisin-obsessed toddlers.
