This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

Whether you’re familiar with parkin or not, this healthy version is made from cooked apples to cut down on the fat and sugar content while still retaining a delicious, moist and sticky texture. Combined with dates, cinnamon and ginger, this treat is full of festive flavours!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
