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 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 [...]

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 [...]

Passion Fruit Mango White Chocolate Magnums

Brighten up your day with one of these passion fruit mango white chocolate magnums! They're so easy to make and only call for a handful of ingredients. They're also made with better-for-you ingredients like whole fruit and yoghurt.  * This post is sponsored by Foodie Flavours* Summer may officially be over, but my insatiable appetite for ice cream knows no season! Whether it's winter or summer, hot or cold, I'm always in the mood for ice cream. Not any ice cream though, specifically magnums. I could honestly eat them all year round.  It's the ice cream + chocolate combination that does it for me. The mixture of a crunchy chocolate shell and silky smooth, creamy centre. I love a good [...]

Nutty Vegan Chocolate Digestives

Nutty vegan chocolate digestives made at home with easy to find ingredients. They can also easily be made gluten-free! A homemade vegan digestive biscuit topped with a layer of chocolatey toasted almonds! These are essentially pimped up digestives. So if you're a fan of chocolate digestives, you definitely need to give these a try! Dark chocolate Digestives are my go to biscuit and I often make my own at home because they’re so easy to make and I think everything tastes better when it’s homemade. So I decided to make a fancier version with toasted flaked almonds in the chocolate topping. The almond chocolate layer really makes them feel so decadent - like the biscuits you would spend a lot [...]

Vegan Chocolate Mint Cheesecake

A simple no-bake treat – this vegan chocolate mint cheesecake is so yummy and made using healthier ingredients! With a crumbly base, smooth mint chocolate 'cheesecake' filling all topped with a layer of smooth ganache, this mint chocolate cheesecake is so easy to make and requires no baking. I always make sure that the ingredients I use are accessible and easy to find and the ingredients I use to make this cheesecake are no exception.  I love using brewed tea to flavour desserts. There are so many fun and exciting flavours to play around with instead of using artificial food flavourings. Just use whatever you have in your tea drawer/cupboard. My favourite tea brand at the moment is Ahmad tea. I [...]

Protein Chocolate Cupcakes (With a Protein Chocolate Frosting)

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 [...]
