Coconut and Caramel slice August 21 2019, 0 Comments
Here's another recipe from the wonderful people over @ketogang.
This time it's for a delicious coconut caramel slice. Doesn't it look great!
To make the base you need:
- 200g almond meal
- 30g nut butter of your choice
- 50g butter
Melt the butter together, mix in the almond flour and then bake in a lined baking dish at 180 degrees for 10 min.
- For the caramel sauce you need:
- 1 cup thickened cream HWC 250g salted butter
- 4 tablespoons of brown sugar or substitute
Simply melt the ingredients and keep it on a simmer for about 15 minutes, then, once thickened, I like to turn it up to high for 5 min to let it really caramelise - make sure you stir it constantly while round this. Pour over the base then sprinkle with a packet of @beachharvest Himalayan pink salt coconut chips!
Camping, Manu & Muesli July 08 2019, 0 Comments
You may have noticed our absence lately on Social Media.... we intentionally unplugged and 'went bush' with the kids. We spent several days camping on the Mitchell River - enjoying the amazing tropical winter weather and quality time with the kiddos.
Ironically, my kids love food besides coconut chips, and camping tends to have a lot of junk-food. *sigh*
Before we left, I met Manu Feildel at the Sunday Port Douglas Markets. I heard he was in town for a 'Chefs in Paradise' event, and sure enough I spotted him amongst the market crowds. I used to watch him in the 'Ready Steady Cook' days, but I think he's best known for his role MKR My Kitchen Rules. He graciously agreed to a pic with me and one of my staff Matthew - thanks Manu!
"Omg this is a wonderful product for Keto peeps that have been missing muesli. The way the coconut is made makes it. Love love love - thank you" - Tania
"Best Muesli I’ve tasted .. just add or not want you want .. the shaved Coconut takes it to another level . A really natural, feel good , taste even better muesli . Well done" - David B
So I've made the Keto Muesli official - check it out here

Coconut & Lime Loaf Recipe June 26 2018, 0 Comments
Coconut & Lime Loaf with Lime Icing
My good friend Cristine from CWA gave me a recipe as a means to showcase our Coconut Sprinkles and to give our customers inspiration on ways to use them in their baking. I made it Dairy Free (you could also make it vegan by substituting eggs for chia seeds), and this Coconut & Lime Loaf still has that homemade-with-love authentic taste, and the blend of coconut and lime is delicious perfection!
Cristine bakes these in mini-loaf tins, making them perfect to slice and share.
1 1/2 cup SR flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup Plain Coconut Sprinkles
1 Tablespoon Lime Rind
Lime Icing Ingredients:
1-2 cups of plain coconut yogurt
Juice of 1 lime
Beat the flour, sugar, oil, eggs and milk until sugar is dissolved. Add Coconut Chips and Lime Rind. Bake in moderate oven for approx 40 min.
Mix all icing ingredients together and spread on loaf when it’s cooled. Top with additional Coconut Sprinkles for decoration.
Did you make this Coconut Lime loaf? How'd you go? I'm currently experimenting to make this loaf dairy-free, substituting with Almond Milk and Coconut Oil.... stay tuned!
EDIT: I made the dairy-free changes and no longer use butter or dairy milk in my baking. The recipe is updated and is the exact one I use at the markets.

I'm honoured and thrilled to have this recipe from the lovely Naomi from Raw Gems*. Here is her recipe for Homemade Muesli. Thanks Naomi! xo
Muesli is very easy to make! You can add whatever you like to suit your own tastebuds. Here’s what I used in mine. All the ingredients that I use are organic.
4 cups of oats
1 cup bran
1 cup Puffed rice
1 cup Puffed buckwheat
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup Sultanas
½ cup Sun flower seeds
½ cup Pepitas seeds
½ cup Goji berries
½ cup Cranberries
½ cup Slithered Almond
½ cup Currants
Add all ingredients in a large bowl or container, layer by layer. Once all ingredients are in the container, stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is even throughout. Enjoy with your favourite milk - my favourite is activated almond milk.
Save remaining muesli in an air-tight container. Enjoy!
