Raw Mini Mango Cheesecakes
What’s better than a cheesecake? A no bake, no fuss, non-dairy cheesecake that’s what. These little personal sizes cheesecakes can be made ahead and kept in the freezer until needed. Just bring out a few at a time and allow to defrost in the fridge overnight and you’ll be good to go.
The mango flavour is subtle and will depend on the potency of the mango, the riper the mango the better the flavour. Try adding some lime zest and switch the lemon juice for freshly squeezed lime juice and find yourself transported to an exotic beach far, far away. Enjoy!
Lemon & Blueberry Coconut Slice
Raw and no-bake desserts are always a favorite here at Anita's. They are great for when you really don't want to turn on the oven. Usually, pretty simple, raw and no-bake desserts just require you to throw a few ingredients into a blender and watch the magic happen. The hardest part is waiting for things to set. This Lemon & Blueberry Coconut Slice is perfect for a hot summer day when you want a decadent but light dessert. Made with a combination of dried & fresh fruits, nuts and nut butters it is a perfect treat for your non-dairy, non-gluten friends. Switch out the almonds in the base for some sunflower seeds and you'll have a nut-free dessert as well. Beautiful.
Apricot, Cacao & Coconut Granola (a.k.a. Baby Girl’s Granola)
Why 'Baby Girls Granola' you may ask? Quite simply the dreaded allergies. Most of us have someone in our lives who are plagued by food allergies and intolerances. This recipe is for those who have issues with nuts, dairy, and egg. It is also naturally gluten-free too. But don't be put off – there is no loss of taste and flavor, just pure deliciousness. But the best bit of all is it got Baby Girl's seal of approval – so that’s good enough for me!
If you like date squares then we are pretty sure you will love these tasty Fig Squares as well. They have a delightful buttery, crumbly texture which complements the sweet earthy flavors of the fig center. Chopped walnuts add an extra richness to the squares and you can never go wrong with a nice blend of ancient grain flours.
Rhubarb Crumble Pie
Pie and crumble – two fabulous desserts combined here into one. The vibrant pink hues of the rhubarb poke through the buttery crumble topping to say hi! Here we have used our new Bakers Blend 60/40 Flour which is a great combination of our Organic All Purpose Flour along with Sprouted Spelt Flour, Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour and Sprouted Rye Flour. We love the versatility of this blend which lends itself so well to all kinds of baking such as bread, buns, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust and of course pie crust too. Enjoy this pie while it's still a little warm with a nice dollop of vanilla ice cream.
Millionaire's Shortbread is a rich, decadent layered treat that consists of a buttery shortbread layer, a dreamy caramel layer and topped off with super smooth chocolate. For an extra bit of pizzazz try a little sprinkle of flaked salt or chopped nuts on the top.

Start your day off right with this delicious granola. Made with our Harvest Grain Flake Mix and Buckwheat Groats, it has the traditional flavours and texture of granola with an extra crunch from the buckwheat. Choose any mixture of nuts, seeds and dried fruit you like – just remember to always add the dried fruit after the granola has been cooked. Store in an airtight container and serve with milk, fruit & yogurt…..or even ice cream!

The crust can be made with almonds, walnuts, pecans or as we have with hazelnuts. Keep the decoration simple or play around and create some of your own fancy designs.
Sprouted Spelt Cinnamon Maple Rolls
If you were told you could only ever eat one type of sweet treat ever again what would you choose? It would have to be something you could never get bored of and for many it would be the Cinnamon Roll. There is something quintessentially satisfying about these gooey, pillowy morsels of loveliness that nothing else quite gets close to. Not quite breakfast, nor are they a dessert but they are definitely a delight every time. Here we have only used Spelt Flour, keeping them ancient grain and if you make some slight alterations they can easily be dairy free too.
Red & White Bean Chili
Chilis are a great way to stave off the cold during the long winter months. These quick, easy and nutritious bowls of goodness can be as plain or as fancy as you like. For a quick meal that’s on the table in 30 minutes use good quality organic, BPA free canned beans in your dish. Or if you have prepared ahead, just grab some cooked from scratch beans from your freezer and add them in. Serve over rice or a baked sweet potato, with your favourite fixins' and a cold glass of beer.
Breakfast Boost Energy Balls
Energy bars and balls are always very handy to have when you are on the go. Great for kid's lunch boxes, perfect as an after-gym snack or to take with you on a hike. Or even as an afternoon pickup when that mid afternoon slump hits. With these energy balls we have used our Chia & Hemp Breakfast Boost which add essential nutrients such as omegas 3 & 6, protein and fibre.
