3 simple whole-food treats you can make for your next event!


Over the weekend it was my gorgeous friend Lisa’s baby shower. I wanted to make some yummy healthy treats for the day and I decided to make the 3 listed below and I was very happy with the way they all turned out!

  • Choc Raspberry Gluten Free and Dairy Free Muffins
  • Caramel Slice
  • Coconut Rough

Quite a few of the guests were interested in the recipes so I thought I would share them for everyone to enjoy.

My choc raspberry muffins were a massive hit over the weekend and they were inspired by the amazing Lisa from Lisa Corduff in the kitchen. I highly recommend you take a look at Lisa’s website as she shares great info and has just created an ecourse to help you transition to wholefoods easily, the ecourse is called “Small steps to wholefoods”.

The link to the original recipe is here, however I made a few changes to the original recipe which I have listed below as I wanted to make the muffins gluten and dairy free. http://lisacorduff.com/easy-one-bowl-chocolate-raspberry-cake/


Choc Raspberry Muffins (gluten free and dairy free)

My recipe is as follows:

What you need

  • 110g coconut flour
  • 1 x 270g tin coconut milk
  • 100g rapadura or coconut sugar
  • 40g cacao or cocoa
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 120g room temperature coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 100g frozen raspberries


What you need to do:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

With a thermomix – place all ingredients, except raspberries, in bowl and mix on speed 4-5 for 20 seconds.  Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.

With other appliances just place all ingredients, except raspberries, in your mixing bowl and mix until smooth.

Place mixture into least 12 large cupcake patty pans and then top with Raspberries. Cook for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

If you have not yet stumbled across Bianca from Wholefood Simply then head over to her website, she is amazing and all of her recipes are delicious and so easy to make, the two below are the best ones I have tried so far. The caramel slice was the best caramel slice I have ever tasted and the best part was it contains absolutely no refined sugar, gluten or dairy.


Caramel Slice

2 cups desiccated coconut

1 tablespoon cacao/cocoa/carob

10 medjool dates, seeds removed

Blend until it all comes together, give it time, depending on the speed of your blender / food processor, you may need to increase the amount of dates used. Press the mixture firmly into a slice tin, refrigerate or freeze


1 cup firmly packed medjool dates, seeds removed

1 cup macadamias 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Blend until smooth, press over the base, refrigerate or freeze


1/3 cup maple syrup or honey

2 tablespoons cacao/cocoa/carob

1/2 cup solid coconut oil

Blend until smooth and well combined, top slice with this chocolate mix and refrigerate or freeze until set. Cut into pieces and store in either the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy!


Coconut Rough

What you need:

2 cups desiccated coconut

1 heaped tablespoon cacao/cocoa/carob

2 tablespoons coconut cream

Place all of the ingredients into your blender or food processor. Blend until well combined, this may take a little while. Press the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper, place the mixture into the freezer to set, slice and enjoy!
