Butter Bean Brownies 🖤
Seriously AWESOME! Recipe below ⬇️
This is the second batch. The first was a peanut butter version, which was brilliant! BUT not lunchbox friendly. So for this batch I swapped out the peanut butter for a blend of coconut butter and tahini. A tasty success - confirmed by the 4yo! 
A healthy treat for the #littlenourishboxes this week 💚

What you'll need:
• 1 can butter beans, thoroughly rinsed and patted dry
• 1/2 cup plain peanut butter OR 1/4 cup coconut butter and 1/4 cup tahini
• 1/4 cup Medijool dates, pitted
• 2 tbs honey
• 1/4 cup Cacao powder
• Seeds of one vanilla pod (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt

OPTIONAL: 1/2 cup choc-chips or chopped nuts (in my next nutty attempt I'm gonna try some macadamia nuts :-D)

What to do: 
1. Preheat the oven to 180*celsius.

2. Line a baking tin with parchment paper.

3. Put all the ingredients in a food processor, minus the chopped nuts or choc chips (if you're adding them). Process until smooth. Add the optional ingredients and pulse a few times until just combined. 
4. Pour the mixture into the pre-lined baking tin and gently spread it out. 
5. Bake for 30 minutes. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. 
6. Slice into desired sizes. 
7. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer.

Mini beetroot-cacao muffins; glazed with rice malt syrup and coconut oil, dusted with @wildforlife Sweet Earth 🌏💜Super moist, tasty little treats. Gluten-free, nut-free and vegan 🌱Ready for some #littlenourishboxes this week
Breakfast is kind of a 'thing' in our house. Perfected these little purple bowls of goodness... Blitzed in a teensy bit of roasted beetroot with the 'nana and coconut yoghurt. Mixed in some Chia seeds, quinoa and oats. Drizzle of maple syrup and a few "sprinkles." Miss 3 was in heaven 💜
Do you use nut milks at home? Have you ever read the ingredients on the back of the cartons? 😐 My girls LOVE their "milky" but the overwhelming snot and phlegm they come home with from daycare prompted me to cut down on the dairy! I now alternate between; cow, coconut and almond milk. They also don't get a whole cup/bottle of milk, I brew up a herbal tea, usually a chamomile or bedtime blend, 'topped-up' with milk. 
To buy a good quality nut milk is a good whack on the hip pocket and I loathe all the additives, cheap ingredients and/or thickeners added, so I make my own! This almond milk is super easy and has no nasties 🙅🏻
I used:
~1 cup organic blanched almonds.
~1L filtered water
~1 tbs organic rice malt syrup.
Add everything to a food processor and blitz for 2mins. Stand and soak for a few minutes then blitz again. Strain through a cheesecloth into a bowl and squeeze out all the liquid. Store in a jar in the fridge. With the leftover pulp; lay out on a baking tray and put it in the oven on 100* for an hour or until it has dried out. Use in your next batch of bliss balls ❤️
Her new favourite (and mine)! @thebaysmokehouse smoked fish rillettes dip on brown rice crackers. We've been gorging on this for the last 3 days. Hubby and I went though half a loaf of sourdough with this smeared on top for our Saturday 'Afternoonsies' SO GOOD!!! #wildandlocal
Anyway, this little one woke early this morning so early lunch of:
"Shishi" crackers, coco-strawberry yogurt, roasted fav-va bean and blueberries (she enthusiastically fed the olives to me 😏) Lets hope that full tummy helps her have a looooong nap 🤞🏻
Prepping some day-care morning tea for the monkeys 🐒🐒 ❤️
