Protein Chocolate Cupcakes with a simple 3-ingredient protein chocolate frosting. They're easy to make, delicious and made using healthier ingredients! I love adding protein powder to my treats. It's such an easy way to add extra goodness without compromising on taste or texture. The great thing about using flavoured protein powders is that they also add some sweetness, meaning you don't need to use as much sugar as you would in a regular recipe. Not only are these cupcakes high in protein, they're also lower in added sugar! I also love using finely ground oats instead of plain flour in my bakes. I find it works amazingly well in so many recipes. These cupcakes are topped with a simple 3-ingredient [...]
Amazing tasting chocolate chip cookies that are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and contain no refined sugars? Yes, such a thing does exist! What makes this healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe even better is that it's so easy and only consists of a handful of ingredients.
A crunchy biscuit layer topped with a simple caramel filling, all dipped in lush dark chocolate - these vegan no-bake caramel bars are my healthier take on a Twix bar! Hands up if you love Twix bars 🙋🏻♀️ I used to eat them almost everyday during my uni days. You could say I was obsessed! Since I started making my own healthier desserts at home, I decided to try to recreate a classic favourite so that everyone can enjoy them. My version is vegan and gluten-free, so a great options for those who can't eat dairy or gluten. The more I started to experiment with recipes, the more I found my flavour preferences changed. It's like my taste buds were maturing [...]
A yummy crunchy treat that's so easy anyone and everyone can make it! These 3-ingredient chocolate crunch doughnuts are perfect for when you're craving something sweet, but don't feel like baking or making anything too complicated. This recipe is probably the most popular recipe on my blog to date. I think the reason is that they're so easy and only call for 3 ingredients. They're also really easy to adjust - you can add anything to them and you can shape them however you like. I love using doughnuts mould, but you can use any moulds you have on hand, or even use a cake tin and cut them up into bars/squares. These chocolate crunch doughnuts do remind me of [...]
Hobnobs used to be my guilty pleasure along with chocolate digestive biscuits. I could easily eat half a pack in one sitting. Once I started there was no stopping until I felt sick!
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 [...]
* 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 [...]

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. It also works really great in baking and it’s an easy way to get extra fibre into the diet, which is a bonus. [...]
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 [...]
