Hob Nobs

How have I not made Hob Nobs sooner?  It’s quite astounding when I can confess to having a borderline obsession with chocolate hob nob biscuits.  I’m pretty sure I love the texture & flavour equally and if they’re in the house they are unlikely to last more than a day. Needless to say, they are…

Quinoa Granola

Another super easy recipe to make by Donna Hay. This time around I’ve chosen one of the breakfast dishes and I was looking forward to a change in what I’ve been eating of late.  Firstly, I did substitute the oats for barley and some spelt flakes due to certain issues I’ve been having with oats…

Discovering The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

healthy bircher muesli

I have memories from my early 20’s, when I worked in a major chain hotel, of this being a staple dish on the breakfast buffet.  Knowing it was oats, nuts and fruit appealed to me, finding out that it also contained cream, not so much.    So I adapted this recipe over time when I was…

Rhubarb and Apple Crumble

When I’m feeling like dessert, but I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen, this is the immediate recipe I think of.  It’s so easy to make, I even suggest that it’s a great recipe to cook with kids.  Get them involved in making something semi healthy for a sweet treat after dinner at…

Almond, Coconut and Cranberry Toasted Muesli (Granola)

  I’ve been buying and trying many different muesli’s trying to find something healthy, not to fattening (and full of yucky stuff) that I actually like to eat in the morning.  So far there has only been a few, and they are super expensive.  I love crunchy textures, and nuts so when I saw a…
