Choc Covered Nut Bars

So I’ve gotten into the bad habit of buying nut bars in a pack from the supermarket as an easy on-the-run snack. And lets face it, I probably still will at times, they are the least offensive of the snack bars in my opinion. But I thought I might at least try and make a healthier home made version. An dude, this is a winner!



Apple Cinnamon Cookies (paleo, GF, DF)

This morning has been a whirlwind in the kitchen. It’s the only way I cook. I’ll go for days without providing anything cooked or prepared for my family, then get into a frenzy and make 100 things at once. Because if you’re cooking something, you may as well cook something else at the same time.  (more…)

Easy Slow Cooked Chicken & Mushroom (paleo, GF)

Dinner. Sometimes, ain’t nobody got time for that. Thats why I love my slow cooker. Seriously, just biff a bunch of stuff in there and turn it on. Done. Here’s a super quick and tasty recipe for slow cooked chicken, which is delicious.  (more…)

Paleo Chocolate Caramel Slice

Every now and then you really achieve something great in your life, this is one of those moments. It doesn’t need much preamble, you just need to eat it. I was inspired by this caramel recipe, but didn’t really want to use as much honey. I feel like mine turned out quite sweet enough. The base was an adaptation of the base from my Paleo Lemon Slice. So without further ado…


Chocolate cashew brownies – paleo & sugar free style!

I always need to have something sweet in the fridge. Life is no fun without treats! I am growing less fond of traditional sweetness, and rather enjoying the healthier ways of sugar free.

This is a bit experimental, surprise surprise, but I based this one around my other recipe for date, banana and almond slice. Again, quick and easy is my key in the kitchen at the moment, this definitely fits that category!

Paleo chocolate cashew brownies


2 c almond meal
1/2 c desiccated coconut
3/4 c sultanas
3/4 c chopped cashews
1/2 c cocoa
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
3/4 c coconut oil

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

All wet ingredients go in a different bowl and mix with a beater until combined and a little fluffy.

Pour wet into dry, mix until just combined, pour in a tray and cook for about 20mins at 180degrees. Or 350 F for you folk in other lands.

They did come out a little bit crumbly, and I think that some yummy frosting would go on them very nicely. They are much better in the fridge, cold.

I’d also like to try putting fresh berries in..yummmmm! That might be more of a pudding…hmm stay tuned on that one!

Here’s a couple of recipes for frosting if you’d like to try 🙂 let me know!
