Wholesome Spiced Apples Recipe

Seasonal fruits cooked in spice are a favourite in our home and this recipe is on high rotation throughout the winter months. Adding a fat such as coconut oil as well as cinnamon to the apples not only gives delicious flavour but slows the release of sugar from the fruit into the bloodstream and helps to keep your energy levels balanced.

Spiced Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This not-too-sweet pie has a slight caramel quality to it and is delicious served at room temperature or straight from the fridge. With a delicious walnut crust inspired by Hetty McKinnon, it is a nourishing, nutrient-packed riff on the traditional American sweet potato pie. If you can find some nutmeg to grate yourself, use it — it makes all the difference.

Tahini Choc Chip Cookies Recipes

As a mum and nutritionist, I’m always trying to find more nourishing ways to create the family favourites — especially when it comes to cookies!

Tahini Icy Poles Recipes

For as long as I can remember there has been a healthy version of icy poles in my life. My mum used to make them with fresh juice for us as kids and when I started my own family I decided they’d be a tradition I’d continue. Kids and adults love an icy pole treat and it’s lovely to know that they can be enjoyed with good-quality nutrition. I’ve supercharged these delicious icy poles with essential fats and calcium from tahini, fibre and sweetness from bananas and a kick of cinnamon to balance blood sugar levels, too.

Spelt and Star Anise Biscuits Recipe

I’ve been making versions of these biscuits since the kids were little. The original recipe is inspired by Jude Blereau. They are a great everyday biscuit sweetened with maple syrup and lend themselves to any sort of flavouring — ginger, chocolate, cardamom. I have used star anise here as I love the little aniseed hit.
