Recipe Week – Cookie & Biscuit

Posted on by

Lots of people detox in January, make fresh starts, resolutions, or aim to shape up.  With all these good intentions that are hard to keep up when it’s cold, dark and sometimes hard to get motivated and inspired, I’m posting some recipes from lovely ladies, whose food is wholesome and always looks delicious.  It’s always good to have some new recipes that have been tried and tested, a bonus if kids love them too.

First up, with have a recipe from the clever lady behind Cookie and Biscuit Danae.  She was saving this recipe for her cookbook, but has kindly shared it ♡ Thank you lovely!

Nutty Nutty Goji Bars
raw, vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free

50g raw brazil nuts
70g raw pecans
30g raw sunflower seeds
150g medjool dates (room temperature)
1tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
60 ml of melted coconut oil (50g solid)
100g jumbo oats
30g goji berries (or can sub dried cranberries)
2 teaspoons of chia seed

nutty goji bars close up

Pulse nuts 2-3 times in food processor, but not too much or it will turn to nut butter!
Add the dates, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut oil, mix until all ingredients are incorporated and a soft “dough” forms.  Remove blade and dump mixture into a bowl.  Stir in oats, chia & goji berries.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined 8x8inch square pan, or roll into small balls. Place in fridge for about 2-3 hours, then slice and enjoy!
you can also freeze them, toss in them in a pack lunch and they will defrost by lunch time!

You can order some amazing vegan treats from the Cookie & Biscuit website and follow them on instagram to see what they’re up to @cookieandbiscuituk

I’m going to be trying these this week!!

Rebel Kitchen goodness

Posted on by

Rebel Kitchen are an exciting new food brand, with a range of dairy free ‘mylk’ drinks.  Aimed at kids (but you will love them too), there are 3 flavours choco, banana, and orange choc.  A base recipe made from coconut milk, spring water, date nectar and cacao, create great shakes, purely innocent to satisfy a sweet tooth.  A healthy treat/snack that should seem naughty, and as we all know it’s usually the naughty, wrong things that appeal to little ones.

Founder Tamara has 3 children, and herself found it hard to find healthy products that would appeal to children and good for packed lunches.  So set about creating Rebel Kitchen.  More flavours will be on their way along with plans for a range of snacks.

We had a little play date and tested all 3 flavours of the mylk shakes.  As you can see by the pictures, straws didn’t leave the mouth until the carton had been emptied.  They were totally loved, inside and out – did I mention the great packaging.  You can taste the coconut, but the flavours come through and you don’t feel like you’re drinking a health drink.  The favourite was choco, which was very chocolatey.

At the moment you can buy the mylk drinks online from Rebel Kitchen’s shop, they have a shelf life of 6months and need consuming within 3 days of opening (this will not be necessary, believe me!).  These are going to be showing their faces in our fridge on a regular basis.

Thank you to our lil’ taste testers x
