Oat & Apple Porridge Muffins

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

Everything you would hope to find in a delicious bowl of porridge, tucked nicely into a delicious muffin! Packed with fibre, healthy fats, antioxidants, and only wholefood ingredients there's nothing about these that says they are a "treat". 2 of these should hit the spot if you are looking for a breakfast to take with you on-the-go, or try 1 as a snack. They're not too sweet so feel free to add an extra tbsp of natural sweetener to the batter if desired, or drizzle/spread a little on your individual muffin when eating. I also like to add a dollop of nut butter if I can, They are also quite dense when not straight out of the oven, however see my cooking note re pre-heating the oven to counteract this. You can also mix things up by adding 1 cup berries instead of apple, or other fruits you desire.

No-Bake Fig & Pecan Protein Bars

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

Protein and fibre packed, these spiced power bars are a nice alternative to bliss balls or muesli slices. I personally have one for morning tea or an after dinner snack. Not only loaded with protein, they contain some healthy carbs for energy from the dried fruit, and satiating, brain-healthy fats from the raw nuts. Anti-inflammatory, appetite-regulating, stamina-promoting and hormone-balancing superfood additions (turmeric, Maca, cinnamon, nutmeg) make it a sneaky source of abundant nutritional benefits! Enjoy 1 square/bar a day.

Tahini Bark

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

This tahini bark is a chocolate alternative, ideal for a post-dinner treat. Some people actually find cacao quite stimulating, so this is a great chocolate-like substitute that is more sleep friendly! Made with mineral, vitamin and antioxidant rich tahini and pistachios, and using only plant-based, natural ingredients, this satiating treat tastes just like white chocolate. Make it with ease and enjoy mindfully.

Veggie Paprika Brown Rice Paella

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

Most people associate this classic Spanish dish with seafood or chorizo, but as usual, it can be enjoyed without compromising your health, in a delicious plant-based way. With the delightful spices saffron and paprika bringing colour, heat and of course, antioxidants, the richness of a slow cooked tomato and capsicum saucey broth, and the texture of perfectly sautéed veggies, beans and peas together with al dente rice, this is a dinner party sensation. No man will leave hungry!

Chocolatey Easter Nests

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

No need for deprivation when these types of holiday’s come around, just adjustment. Healthy living is an around the clock commitment and should be enjoyable and flexible! These are a festive take on chocolate crackles for your Easter celebrations! The chocolate is as healthy as can be, dairy-free, using only unrefined sugar and just the right level of sweetness. I used what I had in the kitchen i.e. coconut flakes, millet puffs and raw almonds – but I think shredded coconut with macadamia eggs would work a treat! Definitely would look cute in an easter hunt for kids and big kids alike! Tag me if you make them, would love to see your healthy, happy, plant-based Easter!

Lentil & Mushroom Cottage Pie

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

A hearty dish without being heavy. The ground flaxseeds not only help you reach your omega 3 intake for the day, but act as a bulking agent to make the lentil “mince” stay thick and stew-like. Cauliflower in place of potato mash keeps this dish weight-loss-friendly and light, whilst still tasting amazing!
