Toffees

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, March 26, 2017, In : sweets 

Sugar-free toffees that have healthy ingredients! Thank you Virpi Mikkonen from It's a Pleasure (Weldon Owen, 2016). I used my homemade almond butter too so I'm well chuffed about that.

1/2 c honey
1 c almond or another nut butter
2 tbs coconut flakes
flakey sea salt (Maldon is my choice)

Double chocolate peanut butter honey cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, In : cookies 

This is my entry into the NZ Airborne National Honey Week competition. I wanted to create a recipe that only uses a few ingredients so the honey could shine through. A no-flour, one-bowl wonder - VERY easy to make and scrummy!

Makes 16-20 cookies

1 c peanut butter (Pic's is my preferred brand but any organic, salt-free, all natural one is good)

Muesli bars

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, In : slices 

Part of my search for the ultimate healthy muesli bar for a toddler's consumption. It's from an Australian/New Zealand 'Food Expert'. This has a teeny bit of brown sugar and some honey, but that combination gives it a lovely caramely/golden syrup taste.

Chocolate, cranberry and honey muffins for National Honey Week

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, November 23, 2013, In : small cakes 

By Frances

This is for the ‘Cook Something Yummy With Honey’ competition for the inaugural National Honey Week 25 Nov – 2 December. I read about it on Alessandra Zecchini’s blog. This year’s hero honey is manuka – yummmmm.  I just made up this recipe with what I had in the pantry. I like to contrast the richness of chocolate flavour with the tartness of a fruit such as cranberry. Any fresh or dried berry would be equally delicious – raspberry is a favourite. I...
