This healthy banana bread is a staple in our house. Using banana flour, which is high in resistant starch and low on calories (and GI), we've been able to make a banana bread that tastes amazing. This banana bread is unbelievably delicious. Everyone comments about how sweet it is, even though it uses only bananas as a sweetener and the main ingredient is zucchini!
Little people LOVE this banana bread and it's so good for them!!!
Everyone loves lollies and we were guilty of giving them to our now 18 year old when he was a child.
At the time we knew no better and just wanted to give him what he loved. So with our youngest kiddies we have learnt so much that we wanted to create our own lollies that we can make at home.
We re-engineered lollies to be good for you and your kids, without all the nasties. We have taken the hard work out for you! Enjoy our delicious lollies in your home!
Make sure you strain all of the ‘bits’ out of your juice after juicing. If you want your lollies sweeter, add more nectar. If you want them chewier, add a little more gelatin. Use a good quality grass fed beef gelatin.
If you don't know what KFC Wicked Wings are, ask a teenager, preferably a boy. It's a cult hit among Josh's age group (18). We've tried them... ahem, for research purposes... and we can see why they are so popular. But the fat content is through the roof, because they deep fry a chicken wing with the skin on (skin = fat).
So we set about trying to recreate wicked wings. Quite a tough ask, because we first had to replicate the unique taste (and crunch), and a chicken wing is a chicken wing.
So after kidnapping the colonel and shaking the spices out of his puffy little paws, we decided to spread the secret. So it was no longer a secret!
What we've come up with has been tested by the boys and have passed with flying colours. Josh and his friends simply can't tell the difference in taste - even though we stripped the skin off!
Choose your hot sauce depending on your preference for spiciness!
Healthy rolo, delicious chocolate covering a caramel centre. Way less calories, way less fat.

You can removed the skin of the dates. We have a high-speed blender and it blends fine without removing skin.
Tomato Sauce, it’s good on just about anything. Make your own, and avoid all the hidden nasties of the bought stuff.
We make our own baking powder so we know what is in it. Being such an integral part of so many baking recipes, we think it’s best if you know what’s in yours too.
To be extra healthy, make sure your ingredients are organic and check the label to make sure nothing else is added.
Add a teaspoon of arrowroot to the mixture, and stir. This will absorb any moisture from the air, and prevent the baking powder from reacting before you need it. Store in an air-tight container
Did you know?
Most commercial baking powder contains aluminium to prevent reacting with the moisture in the air, so make your own and avoid all that aluminium, in case you become like wolverine.
This recipe comes from the cookbook Healthy Junk.
Most coffee shops have a stack of fresh blueberry muffins sitting there on the shelf, sweet aroma drifting into your nostrils with a feeling of love, tummy love.
Before you know it, you’re half way through your second one and about $10 short on pocket money. NO MORE!
Make your own blueberry muffins out of healthy ingredients and boggle your friends! While you’re getting shredded eating “junk”, they’re ordering skinny long blacks because “they’re watching their calories...”
NOTE: You can use any fruit combinations you like, we just love the mango and blueberry combo!
Ooh baby. Back when we were kids, adults used to call barbeque sauce the food killer, because it took away the flavour of everything and replaced it with the sweet, yet tangy and smoky magic delight we all know as barbeque sauce.
The more we were told we weren’t allowed it, the more we had it. So here it is, in all it’s miraculous glory - a healthy barbeque sauce.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups of food killer
