Cereal Marshmallow Bars
5 Cups white marshmallows
1/2 Cup condensed milk
4.1/2 Cups Fruit Loops
2 Cups Rice Crispies
60g Speckled eggs
Cut up the marshmallows into smaller pieces with a pair of scissors. Place the butter, marshmallows and condensed milk in a saucepan and melt over a low heat. Once the marshmallows have completely melted, stir in the Fruit Loops and the Rice Crispies. Working quickly to combine, spoon into a lined tin (27cm x 21cm) and press down slightly. While still warm, decorate with speckled eggs. Place in the fridge to set. Slice into squares and store in airtight containers.
Easy Leftover Lamb and Spinach Frittata recipe
15ml Sunflower oil
1 Onion, chopped
1 Garlic clove, crushed
500g Leftover lamb or lamb mince, cooked
150g Baby spinach
Preheat the oven to 180C. Heat the oil in a non-stick oven-proof frying pan, add the onion and cook for around 4 minutes, occasionally stirring until the onion has softened. Add the garlic, paprika, and lamb and cook for 2 minutes. In the meantime, beat the eggs and milk together in a bowl. Add the spinach to the pan and allow it to wilt, then pour the egg mixture over and stir it in. Cook for 2-3 minutes, pulling in the edges occasionally to keep the egg from sticking. Transfer the pan to the top of the oven and cook for around 6-7 minutes or until the lamb frittata is set. Once cooled, slice and pack into containers.
Chocolate Almond Cups
100g Raw almonds
70g Almond butter (or any other nut butter)
65g Coconut oil, melted
50g Desiccated coconut
5ml Ground cinnamon
2.5 Cups Coco Pops
1/2 Cup syrup
140g Coconut Oil, melted
70g Cocoa powder
100g Chocolate chips
Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cupcake liners. Blitz almonds in a food processor until chopped. Add the nut butter, melted coconut oil, coconut, syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla to the nuts and pulse to combine. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and press down with the back of a spoon. Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm.
Meanwhile, make the topping by combining the 125ml syrup, coconut oil, cocoa powder and choc chips in a jug. Pour on top of the chilled bases, dividing equally. Freeze for a further 30 minutes to chill and set. When ready to serve, peel away the cupcake liners and serve or pack into airtight containers.
