Brownies

Healthified brownies! These are completely healthy, tummy-friendly and fructose-free brownies. They were a huge hit with my family, even for those members who don't usualy enjoy my healthified creations - and I quote "they taste like chocolate lamingtoms". This was by far my achievement of the week. I initially made these using coconut sugar and normal gluten-free flour, but found that they still were too 'heavy' and made me feel a bit tired and sick. So I made this batch as tummy-friendly and healthy as possible (while still making them taste good of course).

Rice Crackers & Nut Butter

Easy & convienient snack: rice crackers topped with nut butter. I use the brand 'Mayvers' (www.mayvers.com.au) for their delicious, pure-state and no-added-sugar spreads!

The two different toppings for this morning's snack were:

1. Mayver's Peanut butter with white chia seeds and rice malt syrup

2. Mayver’s Almond, Coconut & Cacao spread with strawberries

Macadamia & Vanilla Biscuits

This is one of those times where I just threw all the ingredients together and hoped for the best. Surprisingly it worked (this never happens). What I love about biscuits like this is that they can easily be wrapped up and put in a bag to take out with you, because having food intolerances means that you can't always be sure that places will have foods that you're able to eat. Usually when I'm heading out anywhere, I put something like this in my bag just incase. There's nothing more frustraiting than being hungry but not being able to eat!

 

ANZAC Biscuits

This is one of my most frequently cooked recipes. I alter the recipe a bit each time I make them, but I'm sure that this one is definitely the best (they have been family tried, tested and approved). They will also keep for ~ 5-7 days so are great to have in the pantry. 

Before we get on to the recipe, just a few notes on some of the ingredients

Do oats normally contain gluten?
