Vegan Chickpea Peanut Butter Curry

A speedy curry that will leave you feeling full and satisfied. Once you try this vegan chickpea peanut butter curry, you’ll be making it all the time! Last year I made this easy and quick coconut chickpea curry which has since become my go-to speedy dinner. It's so convenient and it's the kind of recipe that you probably already have all the required ingredients for in your cupboard. Even if you don't, you can easily adjust it depending on what you have available or to your liking.  I wanted to make something similar, but with different flavours just so I have a variation to fall back on if I don't have coconut milk for example or if I'm simply craving a change, [...]

Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies

Rich, dense and chewy chocolate cookies made using healthier ingredients - these Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies are completely plant-based and gluten-free. If you love chocolate and tahini, then these chocolate fudge tahini cookies are for you. In fact if you love cookies, full stop, you need to try these! I made these cookies years ago and posted them on my blog (click here for the original recipe), but I've had a lot of requests for an egg-free version and I've finally managed to get the chance to re-test the recipe and found the perfect ratio of ingredients for them to work without the eggs. They're super dense and so chocolatey and lush :D and best of all they only call for 7 ingredients! [...]

Healthier Vegan Baklava Cups

Mini cups filled with crunchy nuts - these healthier vegan baklava cups are the perfect light sweet treat! Baklava is probably the one dessert you’ll find served at every celebration in the Middle East or any Arab speaking country. It’s such a decadent dessert - one that is served to show hospitality & generosity. Diamond shaped delights made up of layered crispy phyllo pastry, crunchy nuts flavoured with cinnamon & cardamom all drenched in a rose water + orange blossom infused syrup. Baklava is also the go-to dessert during the holy month of Ramadan as well as during Eid celebrations. They’re usually so hearty/sweet that I can only manage a couple of bites or a really small piece, otherwise it sits heavy [...]

Vegan Baklava Porridge

A creamy porridge recipe that tastes like a dessert! This vegan baklava porridge is my favourite porridge recipe of all time. Getting out of bed in the mornings when it's cold and dark is a challenge. What helps me is knowing I'm going to eat something delicious for breakfast. A bowl of warming porridge.  I often say that eating soup is like giving your belly a big warm hug. I also think that porridge is the breakfast equivalent to soup. Nourishing, delicious and so cosy.  If you've never had the pleasure of trying baklava before and you're wondering what it is - it's a Middle Eastern dessert made with a sweet flakey pastry, nuts and lots of syrup or honey. [...]

Protein Fruit & Seed Bars

A hearty snack bar - these protein fruit & seed bars also make a great on-the-go breakfast on busy mornings. Packed with seeds & dried fruit all topped off with a decadent layer of smooth dark chocolate!  I use nuts and nut butters in a lot of my desserts, baking and snack recipes. Every time I post a recipe I can guarantee I'll get at least one person asking for a nut-free alternative. Nuts can easily be replaced with seeds and nut butters with tahini or sunflower seed butter.  I thought it was about time I created a recipe that's completely nut-free, but still packed with healthy fats & fibre. I also added in some protein powder to make it [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan)

*This post is sponsored by Califia Farms* A decadent chocolate peanut butter banana bread - dense, rich and topped with a lush frosting. Dessert heaven right here! Who doesn't love banana bread? I have never come across someone who doesn't like to indulge in a moist, dense slice of banana bread. However, this is no ordinary banana bread. For one, it's a chocolate banana bread, AND it's topped with a decadent peanut butter frosting. It's impossible to say no to a slice with your afternoon cuppa. Banana bread had a serious moment during lockdown. Everyone seemed to be making it apart from me, which is strange seeing as banana bread is my favourite kind of cake. On reflection, I know [...]

Vegan Chickpea Sweetcorn Fritters

Vegan Chickpea Sweetcorn Fritters A healthy snack that's quick and easy to make and packed with flavour! These vegan chickpea sweetcorn fritters can also be enjoyed as a side or even as a savoury breakfast! These fritters are easy - mix in one bowl - kind of recipe. You can change it around and add other vegetables or beans that you have available in your fridge/cupboard. Packed with spices and lightly fried making them taste super delicious whilst still being healthy. They also happen to be fully vegan and gluten-free! They make a really nice light lunch, but also a great appetiser/side dish. I also love heating up leftovers in the morning to enjoy as a savoury breakfast. As well [...]

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Orange Tart

A deliciously decadent tart that everyone can enjoy! This gluten-free vegan chocolate orange tart is another great dessert to serve this festive season.  *This post is sponsored by FREEE* With only three more sleeps left before Christmas, I wanted to make a dessert that’s really easy to put together, in case you’re looking for a last-minute treat. I’ve always thought of chocolate + orange as the perfect festive sweet flavour combination. They just marry so well together to help create the most luscious & delicious treats. The base is made up of a simple mixture of FREEE Gluten Free Plain White Flour, dairy-free butter and water with a little bit of sugar to sweeten. The smooth velvety filling is made [...]

Vegan Protein Gingerbread Hot Chocolate

What's better than a warming hot cup of cocoa? This vegan protein gingerbread hot chocolate is exactly what you need to stay warm this winter.  Up until recently, I was never a hot chocolate girl and had never been interested in it...ever! Which is strange considering I'm such a huge chocolate fan. I've always preferred to eat my chocolate rather than drink it.  Around this time last year, all that changed. A chocolate brand gifted me some of their chocolate bars along with a tub of their hot chocolate. I thought why not give it a try since I have it. That was the day I developed this insatiable taste for hot chocolate that never went away. Most hot chocolate [...]
