Yummy ‘n’ Nutty No-Bake Balls

  Together with the sticky ginger nuts I posted yesterday, I also made these no bake balls for the guests at the event. This recipe was given to me by my sister, Mikeala. Whenever we used to gather for wekends together she always brought these with her and they were just too good I had to ask for the recipe.

So the original recipe is from Ali here: http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/  But you can totally jazz ’em up as you wish. For instance you can add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips, use other types of nut butter, add agave instead of honey, omit some ingredients, add a few more…it’s just really very versatile and that’s one of the many reasons why I love it so. Wanna give it a go?

For this I used: Continue reading

Celebrations in the forest with sugar-free Banana Flapjacks

The yum yumms

The yum yumms

This Sunday a bunch of us, led by our wounderful ‘guidess’, gathered in the forest where we got to celebrate our Menarche (a girls first period) surrounded and held by mother nature. Some time ago these celebrations where the norm where women would gather and celebrate a girl as she makes the step into womanhood. However these days, this very important phase in a girls life is ignored or if you’re lucky you get a pack of tampax shoved in your face and told to ‘shoooo ‘shooo and we age still carrying that little girl inside of us. So last Sunday, a group of heart sisters met up in the forest where we made a fire, danced, chanted, cried, let go of the inner girl still residing in us, offered all traces of the child in us to the fire and made the step into full Womanhood (see picture below). In the words of our guidess, Satyamayi – “The Goddess inside who demands we look at ourself and the world through our Higher Self,  letting go of the one that holds on to justifying its own story, that wants to point out and blame, to judge or hide… and rise up to embody the true Goddess within. The wise and all compassionate one that commits to seeing the world, and herself, through the clear eyes of the Heart”.

After this energetically charged evening, you can imagine we were famished! so we each brought something to munch on and this was my offering. Some yummy sugar-free and delicious banana flapjacks, dipped in honey (the honey part is your choice 😉 ) I served it with honey on the side for the sisters so they could have the choice to eat it pure or drenched in honey! But before you begin drenching (note: I have nothing against such delicious act) have it pure, you might be surprised at the power of yummy ‘n’ ripe bananas 🙂 Continue reading

Yummy Berry Crunch…..in a cup (Dairy-free)

Some lovely yummy mummy sisters came over for lunch today with their babies and all brought food to share while I took on the dessert duty……ohh, dommage! 🙂

Berry cups

Berry cups

Had to be something fresh, yummy, and pretty easy to make…(drumroll!!) and enters Yumny Berry crunch….in a cup. Are you having some friends over this hot summer time?…make this and you won’t regret it, Promise! Plus I just realised, it’s way easier to have a gathering where everyone brings something instead of having to make the whole 3 course meal yourself, especially when you have a crazy but cute and scrummy toddler hanging off your leg. Anyone wanna bring a dish round mine……to share? I’ll be your dessert lady 😉 Continue reading

EasyPeasy Yummy Lentils

P1080257

Got the idea for these yummy lentils from a sister of mine from Sri Lanka. I remember when I stayed at her flat in London once and she made this for me. First of all, it was DELISH!! and secondly, I couldn’t stop eating it.  I just couldn’t believe how simple it was when she told me about the recipe. This was from her mom to her and luckily down to me.

Wanna try at least one simple lentil recipe? Make it this one and you won’t regret it. Trust me.

Thank you Madusha 😉 Continue reading
