The perfect little energy bite to curb those 3:30 itis cravings, or pre / post training energy snack. Also great to get,  rich nutrients and some extra protein into kids lunch box.

Great for that healthy snack on the run, packs more nutritens then a chcoclate bar at the servo, or vending machine at the office. Easy to make, store in fridge or freezer.

Place all ingredients in a food processor.

2 cups of mixed nuts – (I used a mix of nuts, apricots, canberries and 70% dark chocolate nibs that I got from our local bulk foods supplier)

I then added a small handfull of dark chcoclate coated blueberries, that I had left over in the cupboard.

1/2 to 1  cup of sunflower and pepita seed mix.

3 tbsp of raw Cacao

2 tbsp of pure maple syrup.

2tbsp of water

Roll into small in between golf ball – bite size balls and roll in coconut.

I made these today for a post High ropes project you challenge snack for tomorrow. And froze some for lunch box snacks for the kids.


School Holidays – Cooking with Harry.

So its the school holidays, so why not combine work and spending time with kids. Plus I love being in the kitchen whipping up treats, meals and yummy food for friends and family.

Having 2 of my 3 children with learn difficulties, its important for our family to find other ways to teach our kids basic reading and maths skills. And cooking is one that comes naturally to me as I was always in the kitchen with my mum as a child. So today it was Harry and I playing with a basic banana bread recipe, and adding a little twist to it. And  i must say they have worked out beautiful. Olivia my eldest couldnt resist the smell that quickly filled the house and said let be the food critc. Harry is a highly active little jumping bean and is not iterested in school work at all unless its to do with sports. So with all his love and passion for running, triathlon and ruby, I endeavour to help his reading skill by cooking and teaching him good nutrition and fuel for performance and recovery. These Choc Banana muffins with some little extra hidden nutrients are great for lunch boxes, and or pre and post training.

Choc Banana Muffins.

3 Over ripe Bananas

100gm Nuttelex (with coconut oil) or normal butter is ok to , at room temperature I found this cocnut oil nuttelex in coles the other day and was keen to give it a go.

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup Raw Sugar / honey or maple syrup ( all different option will work fine)

1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

3/4  Cup hazel nut chcocolate broken into cubes ( you could also place one square into each raw  muffin cup before placing into oven)

2 1/4 Cups Spelt Flour (plain is ok too)

1/4 cup of LSA some extra hidden nutritents

2 Tsp Baking Powder

1. In a large bowl add the spread and bananas. Mash with a fork. Follow by adding the eggs, raw sugar and vanilla essence. With a whisk combine all the ingredients really well.

2. Add  the spelt flour and baking powder, followed by the chcocolate. Fold together with a spoon until the flour is just combined.

3. Spoon into muffin cups. Bake in a pre heated 150 degree Celcius oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden and it bounces back when touched.

enjoy the warm gooy Choc banana fresh out oif the oven. yum yum 3 happy kids in my house hold.

Best consumed within 3 days of baking, or freeze down for future school lunch boxes, if they last that long.
