Super Healthy Energy Balls

No Bake Super Healthy Energy Balls

I usually work until late night and by the time it is 10:00/10:30 PM, I am hungry and always looking for some candy or sugar fix ( not so healthy) to keep me going for another couple of hours. Few weeks ago I stumbled upon a similar recipe of energy snacks with all healthy ingredients and I [...]
Banana Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

Banana Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

Banana and Oatmeal are my two go to ingredients when I want to make a healthy snack, breakfast or dessert. While both of them are low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, they are also a good source of Dietary Fiber and they are made for each other! Here is a Banana Walnut [...]

Peanut Butter Fudge with Pretzels

It was almost midnight and I wanted to make something for my team at work. Something quick, sweet and indulgent. When I am pressed for time haystacks and fudge are my two go to options. So I decided to make a very simple four ingredient fudge. Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Pretzels – what’s not to [...]
White Chocolate Craisins Haystacks-Pretzels, peanuts

White Chocolate and Craisins Haystacks

Here is a super simple and delicious holiday treat that as the name suggests looks like a ‘Haystack’. I have seen recipes with lot of different ingredients but I liked the one with pretzels and peanuts the best. It could be because that these two are also my personal favorites when I need [...]
Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies (Eggless)

This one is for my father-in-law. He loves cookies but not the fact that most of them are loaded with sugar, refined flour and fats. As I stumbled upon this recipe, I remembered him and thought of giving it a try. I am not sure if I should categorize these as cookies or not. Contrary to [...]
Strawberry Milk Cake Pudding

Strawberry Milk Cake Pudding (Eggless)

It all started with trying to make a Tres Leches Cake. When I looked up the recipes, all of them called for eggs. Since I wanted to make an eggless dessert, I thought maybe this time I should just make a milk cake pudding. The pudding is not ‘Tres Leches’ as Tres Leches would mean ’3 types of [...]
Eggless Strawberry Cake

Steamed Date and Sago (Tapioca) Pudding

Steamed Date and Sago Pudding (Eggless)

By Heidemarie Swanepoel This is the type of pudding I make on a day when I have time to spare, and when I have planned well ahead. The mixing and preparing takes only minutes, but the sitting time, and the steaming time are far apart. How I manage this, is this: Just after lunch, I put the sago in [...]
Served Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

By Heidemarie Swanepoel Apples are in season and there is nothing better than eating a fresh, ripe apple. But this apple crumble comes very close. Sometimes I double up on the crumble part, and firmly press half the dough into a baking dish, and then continue as in the recipe, and serve it as a [...]
Eggless Custard

Eggless Custard

By Heidemarie Swanepoel This was a staple dish many years ago, as a meal, or as a soup, and sometimes sweetened as a pudding. We enjoy it as a custard served with fruit or another pudding, or as a meal on a cold winters night. Ingredients: 4 cups milk 1/2 cup sugar (or to taste) 2-3 tablespoons [...]
