  • simplification Lots of New Year resolution chats happening this time
    3 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition  #simplification  Lots of New Year resolution chats happening this time of year and before the anxiety of wtf shall I resolve to do and an epic long list appears before you I just wanted to drop this thought which is - it’s ok to resolve to do less. Doing less and simplifying things doesn’t make you any less. In fact, if anything, just doing a few less things but doing those chosen things with INTENTION will mean you are doing more - because of the QUALITY of your attention to it. I scaled back on SO MUCH in 2019 and
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil
  • Hi friends please excuse my radio silence as weve launched
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Hi friends, please excuse my radio silence as we've launched into 2020 I had a little break from social media to refresh and have honestly just felt a bit speechless with the bush fire devastation in our country so haven't been posting, rather I've quietly plugged away with $ donations to different charities, donated supplies to any of the collections possible and have been supporting those close to us, in particular my family, caught in the fires. My aunty has had to evacuate her home, it's situated right in the middle of the two southern fires, as a family we
  • INDIAN SPICE SAUSAGE ROLLS WITH RAITA  Most of my
    3 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition INDIAN SPICE SAUSAGE ROLLS WITH RAITA : Most of my sausage roll creations come about from leftover veggies, a handful of herbs and a well fuelled spice rack. I don’t ever recall going out and physically purchasing anything for them and that I think is the best principle when it comes to these things – especially when there’s some cheeky pastry to wrap around it like a present to your tastebuds. Having oats, eggs and sunflower seeds on hand helps here but no doubt you could do with breadcrumbs and whatever other nuts or seeds you might have for some

PEANUT BUTTER POPCORN BARS

Recipes that come about when you just trying to be resourceful with random ingredients on hand are the best aren’t they? Like these PB Popcorn Bars which I wanted to do simply because we had a bit leftover in the PB jar (well bucket…catering) and some popcorn kernels from a kids we catered.

So easy, so well loved by everyone, with the exception of my partner who looked well left out as I made them and he continued sipping on juice #5 for his juice cleanse that day…moving on.

This recipe is super simple but there is one tiny element that will make or break it and that is the time the peanut butter and honey/rice malt stay on the stove. They need only about a minute so it is a runny enough consistency (it won’t become super runny) to mix through the popcorn and bind it together. I held off posting this recipe until I had retested this component because take your eyes off it and it becomes a separated crumb! You can’t work the crumb into the popcorn to make it a bar unfortunately (I did try!), so be attentive for this brief moment. It’s really easy otherwise and the rest takes no time at all.

Ready?

PEANUT BUTTER POPCORN BARS 

Makes 16

GF : DF : VEGAN (OPT)

4 cups cooked popcorn (approx 2 tablespoons kernels)

3/4 cup smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup honey OR 1/3 cup rice malt syrup

Place peanut butter and honey / rice malt in a small saucepan on low heat and whisk together with a fork or whisk until it is slightly runny, be careful not to leave it on the heat too long or it will become a crumby consistency. When ready, place popcorn in a large bowl, pour oven pb and honey/rice malt mix, then mix together using clean hands. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and press the bars into the tin. Cover and place in freezer to set for 2 hours. Once set, slice and serve, they keep out of the fridge or freezer and hold together for about 3 hours.
