This time of year many people are baking or making tasty little treats to gift or share with family for the festive season. It’s such a lovely thing to receive a handmade gift, something baked with love. That is, as long as it’s not filled with processed grains and sugars.
The festive season can be hard to avoid those foods that you have chosen to remove from your diet. For many people it takes an extra effort to resist. So receiving a girt made with real food ingredients shows the extra care and effort has been put into that gift. Here I have put together 10 recipes that would make great homemade gifts. Things I’d love to receive myself.
Its been a busy week or so in my house. My two children happen to celebrate their birthday’s just 10 days apart (who planned that?). Well, there is actually two years between them, but when you are celebrating with friends and family it can make for a busy time.
This year they are reaching the milestones of 10 and 8. The years have flown by so fast, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. They are two of the most special people I will ever have the privilege to meet. It is my honour to watch them grow, develop and support them in becoming the best version of themselves.
They were just a tad younger here.
One very important recipe to have, make and enjoy has to be a sweet treat that you can enjoy and not feel guilty about. This post sharing the Primal Cravings recipe for Chocolate Brownies is that recipe, a must. Perfect to have in the freezer too….
One of the first Paleo recipes I made was these Chocolate Brownies that I got from the Primal Cravings book by Brandon and Megan from the blog Health Bent. Its been one of my favourite recipes ever since first trying it. Once I got my Thermomix, it was also one of the first recipes I converted.
