Orange Cranberry Bliss Balls

Easy no-bake energy bites

Easy no-bake bliss balls that are great for kids to make and eat!

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii everyone!!! Yes, I’m still running a blog and haven’t forgotten about it! I took a break over the seasonal period to spend with my nearest and dearest then couldn’t seem to get over blank page syndrome :/ so here is a nice easy recipe to kick things off as I have quite a few posts lined up 🙂 Bliss balls. Energy bites. Little spheres of yummy goodness… whatever your name for these , most of you will be familiar with them. I love these little guys and so does Coppertop, perfect healthy afternoon snack or breakfast option that take no time at all to put together and you don’t even need a food processor for this version. They taste almost more like orange cranberry cookie dough balls but they’re packed full of fibre and slow releasing energy from the oats, Omegas from the hemp seeds and protein from the nut butter.

Cranberry & Orange cookies with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla to get in the Christmas Spirit!

Is it Christmas yet , is it, IS IT?!!! Up until now it really hasn’t felt it in this house for some reason, despite the tree being up , playing Christmas music, going to the local Steiner school Advent Fair where Coppertop played with the walnut boat candles and entered an enchanted crystal forest ( I was SO impressed ). It just felt really flat and I couldn’t muster up the proper Christmas spirit at all. Until now!! All thanks to cookies. Of course. They fix everything, didn’t you know?!! Delicious cranberry and orange morsels with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Seriously. YUUUMMMM! I’m going to have to make another few (twenty) batches of these in the next fortnight , to give to every single person I know!! I’m aware I’m using a lot of exclamation marks but I now feel very ‘Buddy The Elf’ instead of the Grinch. I won’t blather on anymore as I want you to quickly read the recipe then go make these and revel in Christmas cheer! Continue reading →

Carrot, Orange & Coriander Soup

Vegan, Frugal, Filling Soup

Vegan, Frugal, Filling Soup

Oh soup, let me count the ways I love thee. Warm, filling, comforting, easy way to pack in veggies for both adults and kiddies, quick to make, frugal…. it’s like a hug in a bowl. This one in particular is a gorgeous example of a soup that’s fresh yet filling with the slight zingy hit from the orange. A staple in our house when I’ve gotten carried away with organic carrots being on sale then wonder what I’m going to use them all for. Continue reading →
