Healthy 3 Ingredient Cookie

These are the easiest cookies ever as you only need three ingredients; Oats, Banana and chocolate chips. You could even make them for babies from 6 months old, just omit the chocolate chips. I made these chocolate chip cookies again the other day (with the help of my two year old) , as I quickly needed to prepare a after…

Nutty Cacao Balls

I still get surprised at how regularly my kids need a little snack. As they are so active, I find their energy levels can drop really quickly. One minute they seem fine and suddenly I’ll have a screaming toddler, who will not listen and give me no clue as to what is wrong. With time, I’ve…

Healthy Granola

I had planned to post this recipe just before Christmas as I thought this would be the kind of breakfast I would love to wake up to on Christmas day. We were away staying with family and in my head I thought I might make a batch of this granola to take with us and…

Creamy Courgette & Coconut Soup

Every year I seem to plant way too many courgettes. I don’t know why I do it, I think I just forget how much each plant produces and I like to have different varieties. So, I always have to try to think of new ways to use my courgettes. This year, one of my favourite recipes…

Carrot Cake Oaty Bars ( Sugar free)

A great one to get even young kids baking, these healthy bars are so easy to make. Just mix all the ingredients together and throw in the oven. Twenty minutes later, you have delicious oaty bars that the kids will love, and best of all they don’t contain any refined sugar. I used date syrup as a…

Almond, Honey & Blueberry Overnight Oats

I don’t know what mornings are like in your household but if they are anything like ours, they are often hectic with trying to shower, get everyone dressed, fed and ready to go out & start the day. Breakfast with my two year old daughter seems to take forever at the moment! She hardly ever…

Spring Vegetable & Chicken Stew

It’s spring time! I love this time of year. The days are longer, flowers start to appear everywhere, and everything is just greener. This dish is a celebration of spring. It’s fresh, healthy, packed with green vegetables and a great one-pot dish that doesn’t require hours to cook. It’s adapted from a vegetable stew with…

Date & Coconut biscuits (Sugar- free)

My new favourite thing to do with my daughter is to bake biscuits & cookies. She loves it… it’s like Play Dough but she’s allowed to have a  taste and enjoy the results. Predictably her favourite word is now ‘cookie’ but I don’t want her to eat too many sweet treats.  The problem with most…

Buckwheat pancakes with Ricotta & Spinach (Galettes de Sarrasin)

I think Buckwheat pancakes work great as a savoury meal. Using buckwheat flour gives the pancake a slightly heavier texture than your standard crepe, with a robust and earthy flavour that tastes delicious. A traditional pancake from Northern France, these galettes de sarrasin are quickly cooked in the pan for a minute or two, served…

Millet croquettes

I recently rediscovered Millet Croquettes, I’d forgotten how much I loved them and how tasty they are.  I think we used to have them on a weekly basis as children growing up in a macrobiotic household. Millet, which you can find in health food stores, is super healthy, gluten free and easy digestible. It’s a…

Baby-friendly Curry with Paneer & Spinach

In our household we use this basic curry recipe all the time. Then depending on what ‘s in the fridge I might make it with chicken or make a vegetarian version with chickpea & vegetables but my latest variation is using paneer and spinach. It works really well! Paneer is a mild Indian cheese that…

Mango and passion fruit ice lollies (Sugar free)

When we were on holiday my daughter had her first taste of ice cream. She wanted more! As she’s not even one yet I wasn’t keen for her to have too much because of the sugar content. Most ice creams contain 21% sugar with some as high as 26%. Once home I decided to try…
