Baked Muesli Bars

By | September 27th, 2016|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|0 Comments

Join us This is my recipe for Baked Muesli Bars. They are a spin on my Fruitless Muesli Bars that are very popular! My kiddies absolutely love these and they are made almost weekly in my house. They freeze well too so are great to whip up and freeze for those days you have nothing left in the house for the lunchboxes! Today is the second day of our fourth round of the #freezertolunchbox 5 day challenge. This edition is [...]

Apple Cinnamon Pikelets

By | June 6th, 2016|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|1 Comment

Join us We loooooooooove pikelets in our houses so when I realised the freezer was empty and there were no more lunchbox snacks left I thought I would get cooking. Our fruit bowl was overflowing with apples so I thought why not whip up a batch of apple cinnamon pikelets. Anything with apple and/or cinnamon is always a winner in our house. These make for a great breakfast as well served with a little honey but they make for an [...]

Apple and Banana Oat Pods

By | April 13th, 2016|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|4 Comments

Join us These Apple and Banana Oat Pods are so easy, tasty and use a handful of everyday ingredients. These are a cross between a super soft cookie and a little morsel of porridge. These are great to make and pop into the freezer for a quick lunchbox or morning tea snack. They even make a good breakfast snack on the run! We have been busy with our current round of our Freezer to Lunchbox 5 day cooking challenge! This [...]

Double Chocolate Hot Cross Buns

By | March 25th, 2016|Categories: Breakfast, Easter Week, Sweets|0 Comments

Join us A Double Chocolate Hot Cross Bun pull apart? It doesn't get much better this for Easter breakfast or brunch!  This recipe is based of my popular Hot Cross Buns recipe from 2014. This recipe does not have any bread improver in it. If I'm making bread for friends and don't want to risk it being a flop I'll add just a little in. If you want to ensure you have nice soft fluffy hot cross buns I recommend [...]

Coconut Lime Pikelets

By | May 14th, 2015|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|2 Comments

  This is a recipe that was featured in my 2015 Calendar and it has been so popular I thought I would pop it on the blog as well. Who wouldn't love Coconut Lime Pikelets!? Pikelets are such an easy thing to make and great to get the kiddies involved in. What I love about this recipe is it is very forgiving so if you accidentally add a little extra milk or flour all will be ok. You can certainly [...]

Healthy Choc Pops

By | May 1st, 2015|Categories: Breakfast, The 4 Blades Magazine|0 Comments

  If your kiddies love Coco Pops or similar they will love these! These Healthy Choc Pops are something I have been wanting to bring to life for quite some time but never had a reason to (I already have way too much food in my kitchen most days!). These evolved from my Healthy Chocolate Crackles recipe I posted at the beginning of this year. Bec and I were busily working away on The Breakfast Issue (released today!) of The [...]

Breakfast Wraps

By | January 30th, 2015|Categories: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner|3 Comments

These wraps are inspired by my mother in law after a recent stay with her in QLD. These are not only delicious for breakfast but make a really quick and easy dinner. I try to always keep a packet of homemade wraps in the fridge so I can make something like this quickly for lunch. Now I have a confession. Not everything in this recipe is made in the tmx for these. I love nothing more than crispy bacon so [...]

Banana Muesli Breakfast Bars

By | January 22nd, 2015|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|4 Comments

  These were something I recently created by fluke. Turned out everyone in the house loved them so I got a bit more creative with them. These are like a biscuit bar, just a little softer due to the banana. These are perfect for a breakfast on the go bar or as a lunchbox snack. Just be mindful of nuts though if these are going to school. These make great biscuits (will make about 48 small biccies) or into 12-18 [...]

Apple Pancakes with Caramel Sauce

By | January 20th, 2015|Categories: Breakfast, Sweets|0 Comments

  I wouldn't say these are a regular around here but these Apple Pancakes with Caramel Sauce are a  favourite for special occasions! These remind me of my favourite pancakes from The Pancake Parlour. So delicious! You can certainly change up the fruit you use. Pears or banana work really well. Id recommend cooking the banana in a frying pan over medium heat until caramelised though to ensure it keeps its shape. Love this recipe? Subscribe to our daily recipe newsletter [...]

Fluffy Vanilla Pikelets

By | August 17th, 2014|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|29 Comments

  These Fluffy Vanilla Pikelets are just that. Fluffy, taste of vanilla and pikelets! Pikelets and pancakes are very popular in our house. the boys love them. What I love about them is they are so easy  to make, make plenty and can be frozen for the lunchbox. These are so soft and fluffy and have a delicious hint of vanilla in them. I use Chef's Choice Alcohol Free Vanilla Extract in these and it gives them a beautiful vanilla flavour. [...]

Caramalised Buckini Granola

By | July 28th, 2014|Categories: Breakfast|2 Comments

  Ok I admit it. I'm addicted to Caramalised Buckinis (buckinis not bikinis!). I was recently sent some by Organics On A Budget and I'm hooked! Those on my personal Facebook profile will know how much I love these at the moment. I said I would write a post on them to explain my obsession so here it is! What are Buckinis I hear you ask? I knew nothing about these prior to receiving them and doing a little bit [...]

  As many of you know we love granola/toasted muesli in this house. I love making it, my partner loves eating it. Serve this with milk or with yoghurt and fresh fruit. I even use this to make Granola Cookies. My other granola recipes: Apple Cinnamon Granola   Apricot and Coconut Granola Fruit and Nut Granola Honey Nut Granola Maple Cinnamon Granola Strawberry Apple Granola Caramalised Buckini Granola

Pancake Dippers

By | March 2nd, 2014|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|0 Comments

I thought these were cute so I had to post!   Surely I'm not the only one that often makes pancakes and they join together and become an "8" like shape? Whilst cooking pikelets yesterday I thought I'd experiment (surprise surprise! I should really just stick to a recipe!).    Whip up your favourite pancake or pikelet batter and pour into a squeeze bottle. Holding the bottle squeeze a small oval shape and then directly underneath it squeeze another. Ensure [...]

Banana Honey Pikelets

By | March 2nd, 2014|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|10 Comments

  Pikelets are something I make often for afternoon tea and especially for the lunchbox.    I freeze two together and in the morning of school I pull them out and pop into the lunchbox. They defrost in time for morning tea.   These are yummy on their own but even nicer with some whipped cream, strawberries and sliced banana. A drizzle of melted white chocolate wouldn't go astray either! Too naughty?   This makes approximately 18-20 small child size [...]

Oven Pancake Bites with Honey and Cinnamon

By | February 28th, 2014|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|2 Comments

Today the boys wanted pancakes for afternoon tea but with a sick bub I couldn't be bothered standing at the stove for multiple batches.   Cooking these in the oven is super quick. It took about 5 minutes at 180 degrees to cook these.    These are bite size and perfect in the lunchbox. They can be frozen also.   Some pancake/pikelet inspiration: Banana Honey Pikelets Cinnamon Oat Pancakes Cinnamon Scroll Pancakes Nutella Pancakes   Oven Pancake Bites with Honey [...]

Apricot and Coconut Granola

By | February 22nd, 2014|Categories: Breakfast|1 Comment

  My partner can't decide if this or my Apple and Cinnamon version is his favourite. Lucky I make a new batch weekly and can vary the flavours.    I use apricot purée as the sweetener in this. You can make this by placing apricots with stone removed into the tmx with a tmx measuring cup of water and cook for 10 mins, speed 2, 100 degrees. Blitz to form a purée. Use water to thin it if needed.    You can add [...]

Chocolate Honey Chia Pudding

By | February 12th, 2014|Categories: Breakfast, Lunchbox, Sweets|2 Comments

Well I thought I'd try my hand at chia pudding at last. I was hoping the kiddies would love it and take it in their lunchbox. Fail! They were far from impressed.   I don't eat breakfast often so I was hoping this might be a good breakfast option for me. I think I still need to get my head around it. The taste is yummy with the addition of raspberries but I feel like I'm eating slug eggs or [...]

Almond Crunch Granola

By | February 12th, 2014|Categories: Breakfast|0 Comments

Yes. ANOTHER granola recipe!    This is a fruitless version shown which I serve to my dried fruit hating kiddies (yet they eat it in their lunchbox!?). I have since added 400g sultanas and 200g diced dried apricot to the mixture since the picture was taken as my partner loves fruit in his granola. I love this because it's so much cheaper than store bought cereals, healthier and it's very filling. My partner finds it fills him up until lunch time.  [...]

Mango and Peach Porridge

By | February 10th, 2014|Categories: Baby, Breakfast|0 Comments

Another baby porridge. My 5 month old is loving these. With this one I've actually split the mix in two to have one batch of porridge and a batch of just the fruit purée for the times you just want fruit.    The fruit and porridge versions can be freezed as it thaws and reheats nicely.   The porridge consistency can be easily thinned with a little cooled boiled water or thickened with more oat cereal. Each baby's preference on [...]
