Whether you are cooking for a crowd or looking for gorgeous home-made gift ideas, we’ve got the perfect recipe, using Te Atatu Toasted’s yummy healthy cereals made with only real ingredients.

Gluten-free Ginger and Almond Slice

There’s something about ginger that always makes me think of Christmas. This slice is perfect to take as a plate to a festive function or as a thoughtful gift for a friend, a favourite teacher or someone else who makes life better all year round. To make this more festive you can use pistachios instead of almonds.

Festive Muesli

I don’t usually advocate chocolate for breakfast but I think you can ignore the usual rules during the silly season. Adding cranberries, nuts and dark chocolate to your favourite muesli creates something a little special for Christmas. You can pop it in a pretty jar and give it away or just treat yourself and your family.

Low-sugar Baked Cheesecake Crumble

Taking a plate is definitely a theme for this time of the year! If you are anything like me, that means you are always looking for Christmas kitchen inspiration and constantly worrying about the effect the festive season is having on your waistline. This recipe addresses both those challenges. Cheesecake is a popular dessert on any occasion and I’ve discovered a few tricks to make it lower in sugar and fat and still taste delicious.

Coco Crunchie Christmas Puddings

Not everyone is a fan of the classic fruit pudding traditionally served at Christmas. This recipe offers a yummy alternative that will still look amazing on your Christmas table. They are easy to make and you can prepare them ahead of time and store in a cool place until you are ready to serve dessert.

Pick Me Up Bliss Balls

This is another recipe that’s a great gift idea – or just have a few on hand in the busy pre-Christmas period to keep your energy levels up as you tick off your to-do list. These are absolutely delicious, easy to make and are low in sugar, grain-free and dairy-free. You can even make them vegan and nut-free if required.

Crazy Santas

These are great to take to those school Christmas parties or all those end-of-year gatherings in your children’s social calendars. Get the kids to help you make them – you’ll need to find a punnet of large strawberries.

Caramello Muesli Squares

This is another slice that makes a great gift. As well as being gluten free, it’s dairy-free, refined sugar-free and nut-free. It uses tahini paste, honey, and coconut oil to make a lovely caramelised syrup that gives the slice a delicious flavour and helps it set. You can add your favourite dried fruit and optional seeds for a bit more texture.
