I'm Mikhaela.

I quit sugar five years ago when I was pregnant with my first son. It was making me fat, sick, lethargic and miserable. It was hard, but I got there and the reward has been incredible. For me and my family.

This is a personal blog. A place that I share #refinedsugarfree recipes and other family favourites.

Thanks for stopping by.


Raw Chocolate Energy Slice

Raw Chocolate Energy Slice

I whipped this up last week and I have enjoyed a piece each day before my workouts. They're amazing! Great energy boosting bars. Satisfying. Not too sweet, but sweet enough if you're after a treat. Healthier than most chocolate bars and better still, child friendly. Albert is a huge fan too.

I like to keep things simple. Each moment in the kitchen is a moment I could be spending with Albert and doing other things I love. I do love to cook. But I'm pretty impatient when it comes to getting something made and ready to eat. Feel free to double the recipe and stock up. I guarantee they won't last long.

This is a 'throw it all in the food processor' chocolate slice. Then refrigerate. Yep! .

If you're looking for a simple, fast and a healthier guilt free snack. This is for you.
