7 delicious breakfast recipes

This post is sponsored by Coles I’ve been following along with the Coles 7 Day Breakfast challenge, I was away for a few days during the week so I started the challenge a little earlier.  As I mentioned before the challenge started the kids and I typically have cereal for breakfast and only have something hot on […]

    One kid has toast or bread and fruit with milk almost every day. The other has cereal. We’re generally creatures of habit during the week as three days out of five we have to be out the door by eight am. The other two days are changeable, but it depends on wake up times and who’s in charge on the other days. Sir Reg is keen on a cooked breakfast so will often cook when he’s in charge.ReplyCancel

    We are very similar to you Kat, we only eat cereal, it’s easy and inexpensive. But there are days that I do get a little bored and feel like something different, this is a great selection you have chosen here, the breakfast muffins sound great I look forward to making them up. Thank you Kat for everything you do.ReplyCancel

I’m always […]

Join me in the breakfast challenge

This post is sponsored by Coles I like to plan our dinners and what the kids have for lunch, but I have to be honest when it comes to breakfast we are rather dull and boring, it’s always a bowl of cereal and maybe on the weekends I’ll make up some pancakes. I’ve never really […]

Banana Nutella Puffs

Don’t you hate it when the fruit flies start flying over the old banana’s.  I usually put them in the freezer at this time for muffins or smoothies, but I had an ample amount already in there so I made an impromptu afternoon snack to use up the old bananas. Quick and easy, as simple […]

Banana and Date Muffins

I have had this odd craving (no I am not pregnant) for dates lately, I have been making date cookies, energy balls and my latest favourite is this Banana & Date muffin recipe.  I have made quite a few variations of banana muffins over the years, with weetbix or chocolate chips, but have to say […]

Apricot, Almond and Coconut Slice

Healthy Coconut Lemon Balls

Sometimes it’s hard to find something different to add to the kids lunch boxes, they have their usual sandwich, a piece of fruit, vegetables sticks and some baking, but there are days where they want something a little more and I am loving the ‘balls‘ that I have been making lately.  Not only are they […]

    Do you have an alternative ingredient to replace the almonds? Most schools are nut free zones. I would still love to make the lemon balls, they look delicious! Maybe an after school snack :) ReplyCancel

      sunflower seeds would be a great alternative, make them into a meal with the blender.ReplyCancel

    I would like to know that as well.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful is you Katrina, what a wonderful recipe, so healthy. I have the happy addiction to chocolate so my favourite snack is almond meal, honey, coconut oil and a couple of tablespoons of cacao. I used to roll these into balls, now I just put the mixture into a jar and take a teaspoon to the fridge and get some when I feel like a sweet treat. The jar has been known to find it’s way with a spoon to the computer and is enjoyed while browsing my favourite blogs : ) xReplyCancel
