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…)
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 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…)

Blueberry cornmeal skillet cake – perfect as pudding, a snack or even for breakfast; this skillet cake is moist, buttery and incredibly moreish!
A different kind of cake for you today. This blueberry cornmeal skillet cake isn’t the prettiest, but it is damn tasty; whether you have it hot, straight from the skillet for pudding, or cooled and sliced for breakfast or a snack. (more…)
Mincemeat, marzipan and apple bread wreath – an impressive festive centrepiece full of Christmassy flavours.
One last post before Christmas! This mincemeat, marzipan and apple bread wreath is an impressive centrepiece that would be perfect for a festive breakfast. I somehow ended up with about five jars of mincemeat leftover from making various things and there are only so many mince pies that one can eat (though that number is rather high); so I decided to make this bread wreath instead. (more…)
Crispy potato latkes with smoked salmon and chive sour cream – a delicious breakfast or brunch recipe that can easily be prepped ahead of time. Post sponsored by Co-op.
I have done so many sweet recipes recently that savoury ones haven’t had much of a look in (it’s not my fault that there are so many Christmassy things that I want to bake!); but I couldn’t not share the recipe for these crispy potato latkes with smoked salmon and chive sour cream with you. They are incredibly good – the entire batch was devoured very quickly after I was done taking photos, and I think that they would make a great Christmas morning breakfast, or Christmas dinner starter.

Vegan wholemeal maple cinnamon rolls – incredibly good sticky cinnamon buns flavoured with maple syrup that just so happen to be vegan too!
These soft, gooey, sticky vegan wholemeal maple cinnamon rolls are some of the best cinnamon buns that I have ever made, ever. Damian was completely stunned that they were vegan and said that they were utterly indistinguishable from non-vegan ones, and that they were some of the best, most amazing cinnamon buns he had ever had. Which just goes to show that vegan food can be just as indulgent and delicious! (more…)
