    How to make Chocolate Milo Cookies

    A delicious and easy recipe on how to make Chocolate Milo Cookies that are flourless, crunchy, delicious and the best part – you don’t need to chill the cookie dough!  This weekend Shaun and I created a new recipe for the blog together – these Flourless Chocolate Milo Cookies. Now I know Milo isn’t Gluten-Free, because it contains malt, but as I have said many times before on the blog, I am not allergic to gluten, but rather sensitive to it. I believe in everything in moderation, and I also try to substitute flours whenever I can for gluten-free versions, and that’s exactly what I did in this recipe for…

    French Flourless Chocolate Cake

    Mother’s Day is around the corner and I have another recipe for you to try out – Annie Bell’s French Flourless Chocolate Cake. This recipe from Annie Bell can be found in one of my favourite cooking books given to me by my sister many years ago, called the Baking Bible. Obviously, I am keen to try any alternative recipes available, especially those that are free from flour, with this one being no exception. You only need a few ingredients to make this fudgy cake, including butter, eggs, chocolate, coffee and caster sugar. French & Flourless Chocolate Cake Flourless chocolate cakes don’t tend to vary much in the ingredient department:…

    Dairy-Free Ice Cream with Speckled Eggs

    Its the LONG weekend and I knew I had to get this Dairy-Free Ice Cream with Speckled Eggs recipe up just in time to celebrate Easter! This recipe uses an ice-cream machine and the one I have is a Krupps that I purchased from Yuppiechef a while back. What if I don’t have an ice cream machine? If you don’t have an ice cream maker, the other option is to freeze the ice cream and in intervals, remove and whisk vigorously. So once transferred to a container, place in the freezer, take it out every 45 minutes and whisk to make the mixture light and fluffy. Use an electric mixer if…

    Orange & Chocolate Bliss Balls

    These healthy Orange and Chocolate Bliss Balls are delicious little morsels packed with energy and wholesome ingredients.  Also known as ‘Jaffa balls’ (if using orange flavours), or ‘protein balls’, bliss balls are made by combining nuts, dates and coconut.  I think the word Bliss must have come from the bright idea of adding cocoa or melted chocolate to these little bites. Don’t they look so pretty! 😍   They are one of the best snacks to have on hand, especially when we are running around like a crazy person and need a quick on the go snack. Dates are naturally sweet, so these bliss balls don’t contain any extra sugar…

    Speckled Egg & Cocoa Nib Bark

    So, Easter is around the corner and to celebrate I am making this super delicious Speckled Egg & Cocoa Nib Bark. If you have not ever tried using cocoa nibs, you are seriously missing out! These little nibs not only add an intense chocolate flavour to foods but also a subtle and satisfying crunch. You make think that they are too bitter but you’d be surprised! They have all the benefits of eating dark chocolate, without the added sugar. They are high in fibre, protein, and antioxidants, and contain the same mood-boosting chemicals that make a bar of dark chocolate so satisfying. I am obsessed with them at the moment…

    Kayla Itsines Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

    Today’s recipe is for these Peanut Butter Protein Cookies, from the Kayla Itsines Cookbook. I modified the recipe slightly as I used Eat Naked Peanut Butter, which contains raw honey for sweetness, so I didn’t need as much sugar as the recipe calls for. But, before we jump into the recipe, I wanted to take a moment to let you know that it is my blogs 1 year birthday! So to celebrate – I am hosting 7 days of giveaways on Instagram, so make sure you are following me to enter. You can read all about One Year of Le Famished Cat here. Now for the cookies!

    Cadbury Dairy Milk – Easter Range

    You guys must know by now that I have a severe weakness for chocolate. So I just HAD to let you know that Cadbury Dairy Milk has a new easter egg range.  There are three different easter egg variants to choose from, including these Hollow Eggs that are filled with Astros and Whispers…😍 What’s more exciting than eating chocolate only to discover more chocolate hidden inside?  And the best part, (in my opinion anyway) Cadbury Dairy Milk has now introduced marshmallow eggs called Fluffies! They come in a box of 30 or at some stores, you can find the individual marshmallow eggs. Let’s talk about these Fluffies. First off, the…
