Made with only a few simple ingredients, these balls are not only tasty but also a nutritious snack or healthier dessert option. It hit me recently that I've never used dried apricots in any of my creations before. I used to eat dried apricots a lot when I went through my fad diet phase.

I remember one of the big things at the time was to snack on dried apricots instead of sweets/desserts to help kerb sweet [...]

Vegan Gluten-free Baked Chocolate Oats

A delicious breakfast that tastes like a dessert! This vegan gluten-free baked chocolate oats recipe is perfect to enjoy on a chilled cold weekend day. * This post is sponsored by FREEE* I'm a huge fan of oats for breakfast in general, but during the colder months, nothing beats a bowl of baked warm oats straight out of the oven!  Oats are a great source of fibre, vitamins (such as B vitamins), and minerals (like manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium). Baking them into a dish can help you make the most of these nutrients. They're also a complex carbohydrate, which means they release energy slowly + will help regulate your blood sugar levels. This will help to keep you full and [...]

Chocolate Fudge Oat Bars

A super delicious no-bake dessert - these chocolate fudge oat bars are the perfect treat to make on a hot summer day when you're craving something sweet, but don't fancy ice cream.

These no-bake chocolate fudge oat bars are the perfect, no fuss, quick and easy treat that takes no time to prepare. Meaning you can spend more time out in the sun taking advantage of the lovely weather while it lasts. Because let's face it, UK isn't [...]

Healthy Grain-free Granola Recipe

This healthy grain-free granola recipe is one that I've been making on repeat recently. It's super crunchy and keeps well, making it a great option to have on hand for a speedy breakfast, healthy snack or a crunchy addition to elevate meals.  Granola is something that you can easily make at home with one bowl, no equipment (apart from an oven, which most people have access to) and very little time. You can make it so much healthier than most shop bought granolas and at a fraction of the price. It's so adaptable - you can change the ingredients around according to your likes, or use what you have available in your cupboard to save you a shopping trip. Usually [...]

Delicious, super smooth and chocolaty - this mocha buckwheat pudding can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or a healthy dessert! Breakfast is my most favourite meal of the day by far!

A lot of people seem to struggle with breakfast ideas, especially breakfasts that are healthy with good amounts of protein, fibre and healthy fats.

Raspberry Protein Chia Pudding

This recipe is in celebration of Barbie Day and the release of the new Barbie movie! This raspberry protein chia pudding is what I imagine barbie would eat for breakfast in real life - pink, tasty and nutritious!  I was obsessed with barbies when I was young, but we couldn't afford toys growing up in Iraq. At the time she was THE toy that every little girl wanted. What made things worse is that my cousin not only had a few barbies, she also had a massive barbie house! I was SO jealous of her. Her dad was doing well financially, so he found ways to find luxuries like a barbie house, even in post gulf war Iraq when most [...]
