Happy Friday everyone!  Firstly we have to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who linked up to our first Fabulous Foodie Friday party of the year – there was an AMAZING array of recipes to start the year with and it certainly helped ease the transition from holiday to work mode.  As always it was hard trying to narrow our list of favourite recipes down to just five, but here it goes!

First up is a ‘Life Changing Loaf’ from Dancing Through Sunday. This thing is PACKED with super nutritious bits and pieces, so it’s perfect for helping to stick to any healthy eating New Years resolutions.

One recipe that is certainly NOT going to help your healthy eating resolutions is this Thermomix Snickers Brownie from The Annoyed Thyroid. Holy moly… I love it!

There’s just something so darn good about Nutella, isn’t there! Nicole from Champagne and Chips has made a Nutella Tiramisu – I’m pretty sure she should be awarded a medal for this creation.

If you’re after a healthy summer snack, these Tropical Frozen Yoghurt Bites from Treat Yourself Sweeter sound absolutely delicious.

Finally, it’s pretty hard to beat a really good chocolate cake, and this Chocolate Fudge Cake from Delicious by Ana is exactly that. A really, really good chocolate cake!

Muesli Balls Recipe

The reality that the Christmas holidays are now over has really started to sink in this week, and after celebrating our big boy’s 3rd birthday last weekend, it’s time to finally put an end to my cheesecake binge and start making some healthier choices.  These Muesli Balls are a combination of bliss balls and muesli bars, and as well as being a great way to use up any muesli you have sitting in your pantry, they also make a great snack for both the kids and adults.
