Raspberry almond overnight oats – get prepared with this super simple recipe for a tasty make-ahead breakfast of creamy almond flavoured oats with raspberry compote. Also learn more about fibre and how much of it you should be eating! Post sponsored by Arla.
Last week I took a trip to London courtesy of Arla to have a lovely lunch and learn a bit more about fibre and the newly launched Arla Fibre yogurts. Despite government recommendations that we should each be consuming 30g of fibre a day, the average UK adult only eats around 18g – nowhere near enough! (more…)
Vegan ginger cake – a moist, sticky, spicy sheet cake that is full of flavour, easy to make and perfect for snacking on. Egg and dairy free.
I know it isn’t really the right time of year for ginger cake, it is much more of an Autumn/Winter kind of thing; but we have been having a lot of dreary weather recently and I have just been in the mood for comforting bakes and warm flavours. (more…)
Sweet potato waffles – make your waffles healthier by adding sweet potato! These delicious waffles are light and crispy with a lightly spiced sweet flavour and the added benefits of sweet potatoes and wholemeal flour.
Sweet potatoes have got to be the most versatile vegetable. I use them all the time, in everything from curries to cakes; and most lately, in these delicious sweet potato waffles. (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip cookies – crispy round the edges, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips and really easy to make; these cookies will become your new favourite recipe!
I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)
Hazelnut praline ice cream – rich and creamy vanilla ice cream filled with pieces of delectable hazelnut praline. Delicious all year round!
I actually made this hazelnut praline ice cream before Christmas and was so busy at the time that I didn’t get round to posting the recipe. I came across the photos while I was having a laptop clean-up and figured that I really should get round to sharing the recipe for it! (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip banana bread – a vegan version of everyone’s favourite bake. Easy to make using storecupboard ingredients, packed with chocolate chips and topped with a blueberry glaze; this banana bread is seriously good!
Banana bread has to be my all-time favourite bake. My mum used to make it regularly when I was growing up and now I make it whenever there are blackened bananas in the fruit bowl (either that or they go into a smoothie). I have been trying to eat plant based most of the time recently so I wanted to make a vegan version of banana bread. The good news is that it is really easy to do and it is indistinguishable from the regular kind! (more…)
Chickpea and lentil stuffed aubergines – a tasty, healthy vegetarian meal that looks impressive but is really easy to make! Post sponsored by Appletiser.
Aubergines are one of my favourite vegetables, as long as they are properly cooked of course; a spongy, undercooked aubergine is a sad thing indeed. These chickpea and lentil stuffed aubergines make great use of the vegetable for a meal that is not only delicious and easy to make but is healthy and looks very impressive too. (more…)

Whatever the weather, this lovely raspberry, coconut and lemon layer cake would make a wonderful celebration cake for Easter; or any Springtime event. (more…)
Vegan peanut butter chocolate chip pecan bars – incredibly moreish vegan peanut butter snack bars loaded with chocolate chips and pecans.
These vegan peanut butter chocolate chip pecan bars are crazy good; I could not stop eating them. They are somewhere between a cake and a blondie in texture; with a mild peanut butter flavour, a hint of cinnamon and loads of chocolate chips and crunchy pecans. (more…)
Carrot, pineapple and pistachio cake – a delicious tropical twist on carrot cake topped with a luscious cloud of cream cheese frosting.
I baked this cake a while back but thought that I would wait until nearer Easter to share it. I love carrot cake all year round but Easter does feel like the most appropriate time for it and this cake would be perfect for feeding a crowd at a Spring gathering. (more…)
