Nut Free Bliss Balls

Bliss Balls are one of the easiest and nutritious snacks to make. These bliss balls are nut-free, making them perfect for people with nut allergies. Most schools are a no no for nuts which means you can send these snacks along to school as a healthy lunch box treat. As well as being nut free, these bliss balls are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I have used dates, cacao, orange rind and vanilla to sweeten them.

Courgette Fritters

Courgettes are one of my favorite vegetables and I am always trying to find new ways to eat them. This recipe is so tasty, especially with a dollop of sour cream on the side.  These are an easy vegetarian and gluten free meal.  If you do enjoy spicy food I would recommend adding more chill for an extra bite of flavour.  I made these for dinner but they would be a great lunch idea served with a salad or can even  be eaten at breakfast time served with a poached egg.

Initially I wanted to make these pancakes flour less so experimented with a few ingredient combinations which all tasted delicious, however, the pancake mixture did not stick well so I often ended up with a mess in the pan.  For my 4th try at getting these right I thought I would add in some coconut flour to see if that would help - perfection! What I love about coconut flour is that it is gluten free, grain free, high in fibre and healthy fats.
