Thermobexta’s Sesame Bites

IMG_3257

These delicious little energy dense morsels are similar to the chewy sesame bars you can buy from the supermarket, only with more goodness and no nasties. They’re something I loved as a kid and I have been wanting to try my hand at making for ages. I’m so happy with how they turned out and I hope you love them too!

Thermobexta’s Anzac Slice

Anzac squares

My go-to recipe for Anzac bickies for the past few years has been one on the TOM Organics website. It was easy to make, used a selection of ingredients I always have on hand and the bickies were just perfect. I went to make them last week and was sad to find the recipe was no longer there! So of course that meant I needed to try my hand at coming up with something Anzac-ish, Thermobexta-style. Continue reading Thermobexta’s Anzac Slice

Thermobexta’s Double Choc Hot Cross Buns

Double Choc HCB's

I make a batch of nut milk 2-3 times a week and I’m always looking for things to do with the left over pulp.  Sometimes I dehydrate it, other times I use it in baking.  Today, I used it to create this yummy banana bread.  You can use any sort of nut milk pulp you have, my milk recipes use 140g nuts/coconut, so this is based on that quantity.  Make sure you squeeze every bit of moisture you can out of the pulp before using πŸ™‚ Continue reading Thermobexta’s Nut Milk Pulp Banana Bread
