9 Gluten Free Slices that don't compromise on taste!

9 Gluten Free Slices that don't compromise on taste!


Just because you follow a gluten free diet, it doesn’t mean you have to go without sweet treats, as these delicious 14 gluten free slices prove.

Edit: Please note since posting this blog it has been bought to our attention that one of the recipes uses oat flour, which is not classified as gluten free in Australia, and would make some people with Coeliac Disease very sick. Some other countries have a differing system of grading 'gluten free' so please check this before making.

  1. Gluten free lemon bars from Gluten Free On A Shoestring These lemon bars have a chewy and crunchy crust, with a lemony custard filling. These are the perfect summery dessert when served chilled. 1 2. No bake salted caramel slice from The Big Mans World This no bake slice can easily be made with crackers, store bought caramel and store bought chocolate, but the recipe includes instructions to make your own caramel and chocolate. After all, it’s always going to be a little bit healthier if it’s homemade. 2 3. Raw chocolate raspberry slice from Frankies Feast If your looking for something a little healthier in a dessert, not to mention gluten free, this raw chocolate raspberry slice is it. It involves no baking, and is dairy free, egg free, gluten free, raw and vegan. 3 4. Chocolate chip almond butter bars from Emilie Eats These gooey chocolate chip almond butter bars are so easy to make, and best of all are sweetened naturally using apllesauce. 4 5. Gluten free blueberry bars from Petite Allergy Treats Another raw recipe, these blueberry bars are made from gluten free oat flour, and sweetened with maple syrup and blueberry puree. 5 6. Cherry pie crumble bars from Wicked Good Kitchen These cherry pie crumble bars are the perfect summer inspired slice. While the main recipe does include gluten, just follow the gluten free option notes below the recipe to adapt the recipe. 6 7. Healthy no bake carrot cake bars from Happy Healthy Mama These no bake bars are like a healthy carrot cake in slice form. Like any good carrot cake, they are also topped with cream cheese frosting, yet at the same time contain very little sugar. 7 8. Gluten free chocolate chip cookie bars from Ask Anna Moseley Chocolate chip bars are the ultimate lazy way to make chocolate chip cookies; why shape each individual cookie when you can just pour the entire batter into a slice tin? This delicious version contains no gluten, egg or dairy. 8 9. Chocolate peanut butter fudge bars from Averie Cooks Peanut butter and chocolate are one of those combinations that just always work. These chocolate peanut butter bars combine the two in this super easy no bake, one bowl, gluten free recipe.

Toilet Training Is Easy With Familoo

Toilet Training Is Easy With Familoo

I don't know about you but I have 3 boys and let's just say that toilet training has been messy business. Every time I've walked into the toilet I am met with a mess. We have tried a few things, reward charts, best aim games < haha you name it I'll give it a go if it means a clean toilet, but nothing has worked.

We have tried numerous toilet seats and gadgets with no luck, one toilet seat we tried even scared our 3 year old < go figure!

So you can imagine how excited I was when Familoo contacted us to trial one of their dual toilet seats, yep that's right Familoo is an adult and toddler seat combined in one unit.

Familoo is designed to make toilet training easy and drama free for both you and your toddler.

We were really surprised with how sturdy it was, yet lightweight.

And get this cleaning is a breeze with a one button quick release mechanism, just pop out and wipe over easy. This makes Familoo one of the most hygienic toilet training solutions on the market.

There is nothing worse than when you have to remove the toddler seat off the toilet when you need to go yourself. With Familoo there is no need to remove as the Familoo is held up by a magnetic catch when not in use. That means us mums can use the toilet comfortably without a toddler/training seat getting in the way.

Even dad is happy he can still lift the lid t go to the toilet easily, and put it  back down of course ;)

Would I recommend this product to a toilet training mum? Yes I would, hands down it's the best toilet training product we have tried to date. I also think these would make a great gift for a new mum.

You can find out more here: https://familoo.com.au/   Enter code MYFAMILOO10 to receive a 10% discount 

Now if only someone could invent a product that lets mums go to the toilet in peace ha!

A Complete Guide To Fruit And Veggies In Season

A  Complete Guide To Fruit And Veggies In Season

It’s always good to know what time of year different fruits and vegetables are in season. Produce that is in season is likely to taste much better, be sourced locally, and of course will be much cheaper than out of season produce. Alternatively, if you buy out of season fruit or vegetables it probably won’t be the same quality as in season, will be significantly more expensive, and will either have been kept in cold storage for months or has been shipped in from overseas.

There are a few more benefits to eating in season produce. By only buying what’s in season you will be eating a great variety of foods year round, after all who wants to eat the same thing every day indefinitely. Nothing beats eating stone fruit and melon in summer, and vegetables like pumpkin in winter. Eating them out of season wouldn’t have quite the same appeal. Eating what’s in season is better for the local economy and the environment. You will be supporting local farmers, especially if you buy from local farmer’s markets. If you buy out of season produce it has probably been transported a long distance to make it to your supermarket, which has a much bigger impact on the environment. Otherwise the produce would have been kept in cold storage for a long period of time, which requires large amounts of energy to keep it refrigerated. Fruit and vegetables that are sold while they are still in season will have ripened properly, which means they will be packed full of nutrients, whereas produce that is picked for cold storage it is picked early rather than ripening naturally. They are then kept in cold storage for the length of time required, before being artificially ripened ready for sale, which results in less nutrients. The easiest to see benefit is that you will save some serious money on your grocery bill. It’s not hard to find in season produce at extremely low prices, even supermarkets sell it cheap. If you just buy produce that’s in season year round your food bills are going to be far less than someone that buys produce no matter what the season. Take grapes for example. In winter they can regularly be at least $15kg, whereas in their peak season they can be easily found for only a few dollars per kg. So now that you know the benefits of eating fresh fruit and vegetables in season, you might be wondering just what produce is in season and when. The following list will help you decide which fruits and vegetables to buy in which season in Australia. Print this chart out and stick on your fridge for later! How to tell what fruit and veggies are in season

Date night without leaving the house!

Date night without leaving the house!

 

Now I love to cook! I find it so therapeutic and relaxing. Yes even with a little ones at my feet asking me to help all the time,  I love to hear the words, ‘I helping too’. They get the bowls out along with every cooking utensil in the draw they can lay their little hands on. Its loads of fun watching them practicing their pretend cooking skills.

 

I do 99.9% of the cooking at home. Hubby confesses that he’s not confident at cooking however, he is always keen learn and will help out when I need it.

 

So this got me thinking. We were due for a date night and given that he’s not that confident in the kitchen, why not have a date night of cooking together? I thought homemade pizza’s would be the pretty easy to start with. We made up the pizza dough,  I got hubby to arrange all the toppings we wanted and we began rolling out the bases together and making our pizza’s. It’s great to include the kids in making the pizza’s, they love it and have such fun building up their little master pieces. I also find if they help cook they are more likely to eat it!

 

We have a ball doing it together and made loads of mess but had the most beautiful homemade pizza’s. Hubby thought that it was pretty easy to do and said he felt confident enough to give them ago himself in the future, guess who's having pizza every night now! haha

 

After finally getting the kids to bed, we settled on the couch with some wine and watched Game of Thrones. What better way to end a fun afternoon than in the arms of your best friend on the couch eating pizza!

 

Date night’s don’t always have to be about organising a baby sitter and going out for dinner, keep it simple, inexpensive and most of all enjoyable. 

 

Does your hubby or partner cook? If so what’s their signature dish?
