Vegan Sesame Chocolate Bark

A simple treat that's really easy to make and only calls for 3 ingredients - this vegan sesame chocolate bark is perfect for when you're craving something chocolatey with a bit of crunch. This is another example of how perfectly well chocolate and tahini/sesames go together. If you think peanut butter and chocolate make the perfect pairing, you need to try this combination too! I always say tahini is the Middle Eastern version of peanut butter. It's used a lot in both sweet and savoury dishes.  As well as tahini, I remember eating sesame brittle a fair bit growing up in the Middle East, which is usually made with sesame seeds + honey. I haven't had it in years, but [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cornflake Bites

These chocolate peanut butter cornflake bites are super easy to put together, require no baking and only call for 5 ingredients!  They also combine some of my food loves - chocolate, peanut butter and something crunchy. Literally the best combo ever!  Simple, few ingredient treats have always been, and will always be, my favourite type of recipes to make, but also to share because they seem to be the kind of recipes you all love too! I can understand why they would be popular. In a world that's becoming increasingly busy and an ever growing to-do-list, the last thing most of us want is to spend hours in the kitchen whipping up a treat.  If you're anything like me, instead [...]

Iraqi Lentil Soup (Vegan)

Super easy and nourishing soup that's ready in 30 minutes. This Iraqi lentil soup only calls for a handful of ingredients and there's no blending required (less washing up!). It's also fairly high in protein and fibre.   I feel like Iraqi food (and Middle Eastern food in general) doesn't get anywhere near the attention it deserves. I know I'm biased when saying this (because I grew up eating it), but Middle Eastern food is the tastiest, most delicious cuisine ever! It can also be fairly healthy with lots of colourful veggies, protein, spices and fresh herbs.  As you can imagine for a hot country like Iraq, soups weren't the most popular thing to eat. This is the one and only [...]

Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread

Who could say no to a lush slice of vegan chocolate banana bread? Not me! Banana bread is delicious as is, but add chocolate into the mix and you'll end up with something truly irresistible 😍 Banana bread is probably one of my favourite types of cake. I've made a few of banana bread recipes in the past, like my  walnut banana bread, banana blueberry bread and this banana avocado bread. I can see myself making many more variations in the future too :D I just love how dense and moist they are. You really can't go wrong with a good banana bread. It's such a crowd-pleaser! Treat yourself or make it the next time you want to impress someone with your [...]

Vegan Chocolate Tahini Bunt Cake

A decadent cake, but made with healthier ingredients. This vegan chocolate tahini bundt cake is lovely and moist - the perfect winter treat! I have been given the label of the tahini queen in the past based on how often I use tahini in my recipes. I won't lie, I do like that tile 😅 I'm on a mission to keep hold of it by making even more tahini recipes! Here are some of my favourite recipes I've made so far that hero tahini: Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies Healthier Vegan Pistachio Halva Chocolate Covered Tahini Cookies Chocolate Fudge Oat Bars Vegan Tahini Brownies Psssst...I also have many more! A few years ago no one was using tahini in sweet recipes. [...]

Vegan Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Fudge

This vegan chocolate swirl pumpkin fudge is easy, tasty and made using better-for-you ingredients! You also don't need any fancy equipment to make them - just a saucepan and spatula.  I had some leftover pumpkin puree form testing another recipe that needed using up. There were so many recipe ideas going through my mind when it occurred to me that I hadn't made a fudge recipe in the longest time. Why not make a pumpkin fudge recipe? I wanted to make a super simple, no-fuss, few ingredient recipe that tasted good, but was also somewhat good for you. Made using pumpkin puree, nut butter, spices and a little bit of coconut oil to set and maple syrup to sweeten. To [...]

Vegan Mini Pumpkin Spice Latte Tarts

Yummy bite size tarts filled with a warming spiced pumpkin filling - these vegan mini pumpkin spice latte tarts are the perfect lighter autumn treat. It seems I'm on a pumpkin roll this year. I've gone from never using pumpkin in my recipes to sharing 2 recipes in one week! I'm starting to feel I've missed out on years of pumpkin joy. It really is such a versatile ingredient that can be used to make so many delicious healthier treats. Pumpkin puree is so much easier to get hold of now in the UK compared to a few years ago when I first wanted to explore using it in baking. The only place I could find it was online and [...]

4 Ingredient Almond Fudge

Fudge, but not as you know it - these 4 ingredient almond fudge are made with healthier ingredients and there's no cooking required! For years, dates have been my No. 1 go-to ingredient to use in my desserts. Even though they are high in sugar (like most fruit are), I would prefer to eat a date than a spoon of sugar. It's like the argument that fruit juice is as bad as drinking fizzy drinks just because fruit juice is high in sugar. It may be high in sugar, yes, but it's also high in vitamins and antioxidants, which fizzy drinks are not. So if you're going to drink one or the other, of course fruit juice is better for [...]

Vegan Tiramisu Overnight Oats

Delicious, healthy and balanced breakfast for coffee lovers. This vegan tiramisu overnight oats recipe is a great prepare-ahead-of-time breakfast to ensure you have the best start to your day.  Overnight oats is such a life saver on busy mornings. I like waking up knowing I don't have to figure out what I'm having to eat. I also like knowing I don't have to lift a finger to prepare it! Especially if I'm rushing to get ready and step out of the door.  I'm the type of person that goes to bed already dreaming about breakfast. That can't be just me, can it? I wake up excited to eat breakfast, especially when I know it's already prepped. The beauty of making [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

The perfect autumnal treat - this vegan pumpkin chocolate chip bread is all you need to get you through a dreary, cold and rainy day! It's so easy to put together and made with healthier ingredients. To be completely honest, I only got into baking with pumpkin recently. Apart from the pumpkin spice lattes that pop up in coffee shops around October time, pumpkin in general isn't a big thing in the UK. Pumpkin puree isn't regularly available in supermarkets, although it's easy to find online. That's why I've never really felt the urge to bake with it.  Having said that, I always see so many American recipes around this time of year using pumpkin and they always make my [...]
