Protein Vegan Skillet Brownie

A delicious brownie that tastes like a decadent treat, but made with better for you ingredients! As well as using ingredients like oats, nut/seed butters, I also love using protein powder in desserts to improve the nutrient content and make it healthier. It's also an easy way to add extra flavour and sweetness without adding extra sugar. This protein vegan skillet is the perfect comforting dessert to warm you up on cold days. There's nothing more comforting than a warm, gooey, chocolatey treat to lift your mood when the weather is getting you down and you're in desperate need for some cheering up. It's also perfect for sharing. I'd say it serves 4 people, but of course depending on your [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

A super easy treat that's ready in no time - these chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookies are no-bake and so delicious! A smooth 3-ingredient peanut butter filling sandwiched between two rich, no-bake chocolate cookies. What's not to love? I've always thought of chocolate and peanut butter as such a winning combo, but what makes these cookies special is that they're made using healthier ingredients! They're also no-bake and you don't need any fancy equipment to make them. I use oats in a lot of my baking and treats. They've become a staple in my kitchen and for good reason. They're an amazing source of fibre, vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants. Including them in the diet is linked to [...]

Sunflower Seed Butter Chocolate Crunch Bars

*This post is sponsored by KoRo* These sunflower seed butter chocolate crunch bars have the perfect soft and crunchy ratio! A chocolate 'rice krispie' base, a smooth creamy centre and a layer of decadent dark chocolate on top. Oh and it's all vegan, gluten-free and no-bake. Dessert perfection! This is my first time trying sunflower seed butter and it reminds me a lot of tahini. I've always been more of a tahini person than a nut butter person as I grew up eating tahini. I also find it so much easier to use in recipes because it's so much runnier, so makes for better texture in recipes. Like tahini, sunflower seed butter is a lot smoother and thinner, so I [...]

Vegan Lemon Curd Pudding

A light and refreshing treat, this vegan lemon curd pudding is a great dessert to make if you're looking to whip up a speedy, no-fuss dessert. You only need 5 ingredients and a pan to make it, that's it! I always get comments and messages from people trying my recipes telling me that easy, few ingredient recipes are their favourite. Guess what? Those are my favourite kind of recipes too! Whenever I've tried someone else's recipe that I've either found online or in a cookbook, I usually find myself feeling really frustrated if the ingredient list is too long and/or there are too many steps in the method. I'm usually so exhausted at the end of the day that I [...]

Cookie Dough Chocolate Tart

This cookie dough chocolate tart is such a crowed pleaser! It's my go-to dessert when I'm expecting guests since it's so easy to make and so decadent. Made using healthier ingredients like oats, peanut butter and dark chocolate, yet tastes like a super naughty treat. It's no-bake making it so easy to put together and it tastes 100 times better than any dessert you can get from the shops. It's especially perfect for anyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter! No-bake cookie dough is one of the best things ever. What's even better is cookie dough paired with a velvety chocolate ganache. I've been making this simple peanut butter cookie dough for years and it occurred to me that it [...]

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 [...]

Blueberry Pistachio & Cardamom Thumbprint Cookies

If you're looking for a really easy recipe to make, then these blueberry pistachio thumbprint cookies are for you! They're simple, fun to make and so pretty to look at. Oh and they taste amazing too :D  I think pistachios are such an underrated and under appreciated nut. Even though I always say that I love all nuts equally, pistachios have a special place in my heart. And if I had to had to choose a favourite it would definitely be pistachios. Growing up in the Middle East it was one of the most used nuts in cooking and especially desserts.  Cardamom is another underrated ingredient. It's such a beautifully aromatic spice and I absolutely love using it in sweet treats. [...]

Blended Matcha Overnight Oats

*This post is Sponsored by Very* January is widely considered to be the wellness month of the year. From setting New Years resolutions, following ‘cleanse’ diets, cutting out booze for dry January or setting a goal to eat less animal products for Veganuary. So many of us embark on a mission to improve our health, well-being and start the year the right way. The only problem is, for many, once January is over it’s more difficult to keep the momentum going. ‘Wellness fatigue’ kicks in and sticking to a healthy lifestyle becomes more difficult, tedious and seems to require a lot more effort. You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle’ a lot, but it’s true! [...]

Can' think of a cuter way to show a loved one how much you care.

I made the cookie dough using 5 main simple ingredients (one of them may surprise you!): Cooked chickpeasCashew butterMaple SyrupOatsDark chocolate chips Simple, yet create [...]
