Raw cocoa balls, clean eating at its best

Instead I made the cocoa balls as well as some dairy, gluten and sugar free blueberry muffins. The blueberry muffins won’t make it to Hey Bernice, they tasted like they were free from all those things, as well as the enjoyment factor!

The raw cocoa balls have made it, and should’ve made it here about a year ago (which is when I took this photo below) they are a winner…

Healthy homemade muesli bars (or bites)

I was waiting at the local child and maternal health centre for Heidi’s check-up and noticed great poster on the wall; it was comparing the cost, sugar and fat content of kids lunch/snack options:

Piece of fruit vs. roll-up
Yoghurt vs. flavoured milk dessert
A packet of chips vs. popcorn
Homemade muffin/muesli bar vs packaged muesli bar
Cheese and biscuits vs. package biscuits and cheese dip
The point they were trying to get across was how much healthier homemade or non packaged options can be (often half the sugar content!), and in some cases a quarter of the price!

Banana Bran Muffins – both healthy and tasty…

Don’t you just love a good muffin (especially warm, straight from the oven)?

Have you noticed that the definition of a muffin has changed somewhat? Firstly, most of the muffins you can buy in a café are HUGE! A meal for 2 people. Secondly they are no longer healthy. They’re cake mixture in disguise within a muffin paper – not to mention the white chocolate chunks added, or the cream cheese icing!
