Vegan Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

A protein recipe that tastes like a naughty dessert! These vegan protein chocolate peanut butter cups make a great snack or healthier treat. I love making treats like this for when I'm craving something sweet and chocolatey, but don't want something too decadent. They're no-bake, so really easy to make and you can change the recipe around depending on your preference. For example, if you don't have peanut butter, you can use any nut butter you like. Or if you have a nut allergy, use a seed butter like tahini or sunflower seed butter instead. You can also make them in a square cake tin and slice them into squares instead of individual cups. If you want to make them [...]

Vegan Cannellini Bean Dip

This smooth and silky vegan cannellini bean dip is great to have on the side of meals, as a snack, or even for breakfast on toast!  I eat dips on a daily basis - usually in the form of hummus or Baba Ganoush. I find them an easy way to dress up salad and plain vegetables. Especially on busy days when I don't have much time planning my meals and to cook vegetables in fancy seasonings and sauces.  Even though I'm a self confessed hummus addict, every now and then I fancy something a little bit different. Something like this vegan cannellini bean dip. The  The recipe is basically exactly the same as the one I use to make [...]

Vegan Pistachio Cardamom Ice Cream (No-Churn)

* This post is sponsored by East End Foods* A creamy dairy-free ice cream that’s no-churn and doesn’t require an ice cream machine! This vegan pistachio cardamom ice cream is a dream in hot weather. For me, the two ice cream flavours that I always ALWAYS go for whenever I see them in an ice cream parlour are coffee (which is why I had to make this vegan coffee chocolate magnum a few weeks ago), and pistachio. Pistachio in general is a flavour that grabs my attention and one I find difficult to ignore. My obsession with pistachios started in my childhood thanks to my Middle Eastern upbringing. They’re one of the most popular snacks there, but they’re also [...]

Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

These oat flour chocolate chip cookies are my take on the classic treat, but made with oats instead of plain flour. I love making healthier desserts, but every now and then I also like to make something a little more indulgent. Let’s be realistic here, some days you just need something comforting to satisfy your taste buds and your soul. We all know that something as simple as a cookie can help lift us up when we’re having a bad day.   Oats are one of my favourite ingredients to use in my desserts.

Vegan Cardamom Orange Muffins

Light and fluffy muffins that are packed with yummy flavours - these vegan cardamom orange muffins make a lovely light treat to go with your cuppa! Desserts are my favourite kind of recipes to make. I've always had a major sweet tooth. I think it's mainly down to the fact that growing up in a war torn country meant we didn't have the luxury of enjoying treats. So I think now my body wants me to make up for it! The only problem is I have IBS, eczema and anxiety issues, which means yet again I don't have the luxury of eating whatever I want without it having some sort of negative impact on my mind and body. When people [...]

Vegan Protein Ferrero Rocher

Who can say no to a Ferrero Rocher? What if I told you you can make them at home with healthier ingredients? These vegan protein Ferrero Rocher are a must try! I had just ordered a new tub of hazelnut butter and was brainstorming fun ways to use it in a recipe. I'm a massive fan of using protein powder in treats and it occurred to me that I hadn't made a protein recipe in a while. That's when the idea of making a protein version of the well-loved classic treat came to me. I already have a healthier Ferrero Rocher recipe on my blog (find the recipe here), but I wanted to make another version that had added protein. [...]

A magnum ice cream for adults! These vegan coffee chocolate magnums are perfect for coffee and chocolate lovers and make a nice change to the usual magnum flavours that you get in the shops. There's nothing more delicious and satisfying on a hot summer day than ice cream. Am I right or am I right? When it comes to ice cream, magnums will always be my number one choice.
