If there’s one thing all mums worry about, it’s their child’s health.
Mother-of-two Mandy Sacher is no stranger to making sure her kids are eating healthy, nourishing foods right from the get-go, and her experience as a Paediatric Nutritionist has led to her own recipe book, overspilling with healthy options that your children will actually eat.
So much so that it is the only cookbook that Roxy Jacenko’s children actually eat out of and swears by.
Mandy Sacher was kind enough to share one of her recipes with us, and don’t worry, we got the full breakdown…
BLISS BALL CAKE POPS (CHOC CHIA POPS in Wholesome Child book)
This healthy take on cake pops have become my go-to for school birthday treats instead of cupcakes. The kids love them and the teachers do too!
Prep time: 20 mins (+2 hours freezing time)
1 cup (160g) mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame). If you don’t require this to be school-friendly, use a cup of mixed nuts instead.
1/4 cup (50g) chia seeds
1 cup (240g) soft Medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup (60ml) coconut oil, melted
1 tbs cacao posder
1 tbs carob powder
1 tsp cinnamon
30 lollipop sticks
Homemade Chocolate (see page 89 of the Wholesome Child Cookbook), in liquid form OR 250g dark chocolate, melted
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
High-speed food processor
Place all seeds, including chia seeds (or almond meal) into high speed processor and process until smooth.
