I’m a stay at home mum for 3 girls who seem like they’re always hungry. This recipe for choc chip cookies is quite easy and they are soft chewy bickies which is the sort my girls like (and me).

Q&A: Snacks! Any homemade recommendations for some tasty snacks suitable for a 3 year old? We’re getting quite tired of fruit, yogurt, carrot & celery, muesli bars, sultanas…. Any other (healthy) ideas?
I make this simple yet tasty no bake slice for my kids to add to their school snacks. `It provides plenty of energy to keep kids going, good fats for healthy brain development, vitamins, minerals and it’s naturally sweetened…but best of all…my kids love it!
This recipe is egg free and dairy free, great for kids with allergies! I came up with this recipe because I love pumpkin, but sadly, in my house, I am the only one, so I always have extra pumpkin that needs using up. My kids really loved this cake, and I was happy to be giving them a treat that had veggies in it!
Pear, macadamia and quinoa muffins are something a little different and both yummy and healthy. Lovely for the whole family you can eat them as they are or warm with some yoghurt and stewed fruit. If you don’t have quinoa flour you can substitute it for wholemeal (or white) flour.
These Banana and Oat Cookies are something I often have in my pantry for an on the go treat or snack for my children. They are dairy and refined sugar free and can be gluten free if you can source gluten free oats. Best of all, they are really yummy.
With allergies becoming more common it’s sometimes difficult to come up with things for lunchboxes,or you could just simply make this because you have no eggs either way these are yummy. I love this recipe because it is quick and easily done in 5 mins, all you have to do is wait for them to cook.
Do you find yourself searching for a healthy yet tasty snack for your children? These little fruity carrot cookies are full of goodness with no butter or sugar. You will feel good knowing your little ones are just as happy snacking on something that’s good for them.
As with many of my recipes, I had an assortment of various items left in the fridge that I wanted to use, and thought that a nice ham and vegie muffin would be something my son would enjoy (which he did!).
I had some ripe pears in the fruit basket, more and more often my son is wanting to eat his food using his own hands, and I had a craving (non-pregnancy related!) for a sweet desert that the adults in the house could drizzle with vanilla icecream. The muffins were quite moist and my son loved them. I think he feels like a big boy eating them on his own. The addition of honey is up to you and so, I have suggested adding it at the end of the recipe if you so wish.
These are simple and delicious. I made them for my daughter’s after school play date and they only took 20 min to make and were cooked in 10. Quick and easy, perfect for a busy mum. There are also some hints on how to make them with natural colouring.
This recipe came to mind for no greater reason that I had some very ripe pears that I wanted to use. At the same time, my little boy was a little ‘blocked up’ and I wanted to make something with prunes. Pear and prune – sounded like a good idea to me! I have used a recipe for savoury slices and modified it to work for a sweet slice. My little boy loved the pear and prune slices and I will be making some more.
