The kids loved the maple syrup – as you can see in the photo there is none left! They discovered it was delicious with some milk and vanilla to make a milkshake. Not so great when I wanted it for baking. How cute are the glass maple leaf bottles too. Now I just need to figure out what I can upcycle them into!
This is just one recipe I have made using their awesome range. Stay tuned for some more!

Date and Oat Bars
Vital Stats: wheat free, dairy free, nut free
This is what you need:
1/2 cup The Wholefood Pantry coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup The Wholefood Pantry maple syrup
2 organic, free range eggs
1 1/2 cups organic rolled organic oats
1/2 cup organic spelt flour
1 cup chopped dates, sulphur free (you can use dried or medjool)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
This is how you do it:
Preheat your oven to medium temperature, 180°celsius.
Whisk together the oil, syrup and eggs in a large bowl. Make sure your eggs are at room temperature or you will get lumps of coconut oil!
Add the remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly.
Pour into the slice tin and whack into the oven.
Cook for about 20 – 25 minutes or until lightly browned and firm.
Cool on a wire rack before slicing into bars.
HOT TIP! You can use whatever dried fruit you have in the cupboard for these bars or make a combination!
