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! [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

Vegan Raspberry Coconut Bars

*This post is sponsored by KoRo* A delicious creamy chocolate bar with a hint of berry goodness - these raspberry coconut bars are so easy to make and so tasty! These bars are perfect anytime of the year, but they're a particularly fitting treat for your loved one(s) this Valentine's Day! Even though you can serve any kind of dessert on the day that's also known internationally as the day of love, I do think that something chocolatey with a hint of pink/red just makes it so much more special. You're only making one Valnetine's Day dessert, so why not make event specific to show your special someone how much they mean to you! I do enjoy making heart shaped [...]

No-bake Chocolate Oat Cookies

No-bake Chocolate Oat Cookies Delicious and satisfying chocolate cookies that are healthier than your average cookie and require no baking. No-bake recipes are my favourite kind of recipes. They're so much quicker to make and a lot easier to master and get right. These no-bake chocolate oat cookies are a great example of that. You mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then shape into cookies and you're done! You do have to wait for them to set in the fridge, but that's the hardest part of the recipe.  This is one of those recipes that you can make when you want need a quick chocolate fix, but you're not in the mood for baking. They're also perfect for those warm summer [...]

Vegan Tofu Patties

Delicious patties that are packed with protein - these vegan tofu patties are really easy to make and are so tasty! You can enjoy them for lunch, dinner or even as a healthy snack. I love using tofu in recipes. It's so versatile and can be used in so many ways. The one I see the most is chopped into cubes and fried, but I find crumbling a block into a fine mince or blending it with other ingredients works best in terms of both texture and taste. These patties have become my new favourite way of using tofu. It's so easy, all you have to do is blend everything together, shape, then fry them for a few minutes. You [...]

Vegan No-bake Flapjacks

These vegan no-bake flapjacks are so easy to make and super convenient to have in the fridge for when you need a quick pick-me-up. With it being January and Veganuary, vegan food and recipes are everywhere! Every year more and more plant-based products are being released into the market, which is amazing! Anything that encourages us to eat more plants has to be a good thing. However, just because something is vegan doesn't mean it's inherently healthy. The problem with a lot of shop bought snacks, including vegan snacks, is that they tend to be filled [...]
