Banana & Chocolate Cake

                                                    So it’s no secret that I LOVE cake. I will use any excuse for cake, and when I know something is only sweetened with bananas and dates, that’s all the convincing I need before I delve in and devour the entire thing. I’m not saying you…

Hot Nutella and Banana Crepes

It’s that time of year where everyone around you is embarking on a journey to Europe. My time was two years ago and one of my favourite memories was ordering Nutella Crepes after a very long night out in Mykonos in the local village. Walking on the white cobbled stones through the town full of excited youths at 7am to find an ice cream shop serving crepes wasn’t a difficult…

Guilt-free Nutella Pizza

OK, I know I always say this but seriously, everyone needs to get out their blender and make this Nutella NOW! I have tried countless recipes from numerous sources for a clean Nutella and always find myself disappointed. I’ve also experimented with my own Nutella recipes and they’ve also been unsuccessful, but this… THIS is Nutella. Trust me. I had almost given up on this creation as it took months…

Polenta and Chia Vanilla Porridge with Cinnamon Poached Pears

Polenta porridge?! OK, I know what you’re thinking… but trust me this porridge beats oats any day! So where on earth did I get this idea? Basically a few months ago I hesitantly ordered a polenta and chia porridge at a charming café in Melbourne.  I say hesitantly because I was extremely sceptical of my menu decision and knew it could go one of two ways; I would either hate…

Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Tea Cake

So as you may notice in my recipes I have quite the obsession at the moment with peanut butter. On its own – I’m not the biggest fan – however combined in cakes, cookies or bars and that’s a WHOLE different story. In fact, last night my sister and best friend came over solely to watch movies while devouring my Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars (link in Recipes page). And…

Raw Jaffa Truffles

Chocolate and orange is one of the most fantastic pairs. It may be done subtly or rich, but you know it will always taste equally delicious. Jaffa chocolates are one of my favourites and I can eat them to extremes (as with other chocolate of course) so when I was suggested to make something ‘Jaffa’ I was intrigued to see how it would turn out; especially as I haven’t come…

If you’re still deciding what to bake your Mother for Mother’s Day – this recipe is a real treat. A new favourite (I say that about every recipe – I know!) coconut and raspberries have always been a winning combination and this healthy recipe showcases the two together beautifully. I love baking pretty desserts for a special occasion, however no day is more worthy of this creation than another and…

Chewy Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars

It’s been a while since I have created anything raw and I’m currently a little obsessed with peanut butter. Peanut butter is great and there are so many ways you can include it in your meals or treats. Some even smear it over celery and carrots (I’m yet to try that). And in comparison to natural maple syrups or honey, natural peanut butter is very affordable and accessible from your…

Cupcakes are known to be a true treat and I am extremely excited to share this recipe and encourage you to act on behalf of your sweet tooth and devour! Usually, when you decide to consume this adorable dessert it’s instilled in your mind that this scrumptious teeny…

Chocolate Cake with Cacao Cream and Strawberries

  Chocolate cake has a strong effect on even the most controlled individuals; there is just something special about a chocolate sponge with a matching cream. When your spoon digs into the cake’s soft texture and the sauce drizzles out from the centre, you know you have entered dangerous territory and the button on your jeans will most likely be required to be undone. A friend of mine recommended I…

Crunchy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, I need these in my life every single day. These crunchy chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies are exquisitely AMAZING. I never imagined to see a day that a healthy cookie recipe would live up to my Mother’s, but the time has miraculously arrived and I am not complaining! The dark chocolate chips generously distributed throughout the peanut butter biscuit leaves an indulgent surprise – especially when munching on…
