  Maple Pancakes – Vegan & Gluten-free I’ve made a few variations of a ‘basic’ pancakes recipe before (like my strawberry choc chip pancakes and English pancakes), but this recipe by far is the easiest! Pancakes shouldn’t be complicated and they definitely don’t need loads of ingredients and additions to make them taste good! With pancake day around the corner, …

If you’ve been following me for a while you will know how much I absolutely love overnight oats! It’s definitely my go-to breakfast recipe especially if I know I’m going to be in a rush in the morning and won’t have much time to prepare breakfast. There are so many fun ways to change it around so that each morning you have a completely different tasting breakfast!

I feel that Brussels sprouts are neglected all year round apart from Christmas. I can only find them locally around this time and it makes me sad, because I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS! I realise not everyone shares my passion for the humble sprout and I guess I can understand why. I always used to boil or steam my Brussels sprouts which I must admit did get boring after a while. That’s before I discovered roasting them instead!

Are there any Terry’s Chocolate Orange fans in the house? If you live in the UK, you’ll probably be getting one in your Christmas stocking next month, but for those of you not familiar with Terry’s chocolate orange, it’s an orange flavoured chocolate that’s a festive staple in many UK households. Round in shape with separated segments, just like an orange!

This is another breakfast recipe inspired by cake! If I was ever asked this question ‘If you could only eat one cake for the rest of your life, what would it be?’ I would probably have to say ‘date and walnut cake’ even though it would be a painful decision to make since I love all and any type of cake! I have always preferred rich, dense cakes and loaves over light, spongy and creamy cakes.

There is no denying that winter has arrived. The joys of numb toes, fingers and in my case, a very red nose.

I felt the cold, crisp air hit me this morning more than ever! But I’m not sad about it, on the contrary, I’m one of those people who embraces the cold season and actually looks forward to it. The only things I’m not keen on is the shorter days, the increased rain probability and…weight gain! I’ve already put on 2kg and it’s not even Christmas yet! *sigh*

If you’ve never tried, or even heard of chia pudding then you’re in for a treat! Some may say that chia seeds have been over-hyped the past year or so, which may be true but with good reasons.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of overnight oats. It’s just so convenient, tasty and filling. Whenever someone says to me “I don’t have time for breakfast” or “I’m too rushed to make a healthy breakfast” I always advise them to make overnight oats.

Healthy Gluten Free Birthday Cake

Whenever it’s someone’s birthday I’m in a dilemma; do I attempt to make a healthy cake? What if the birthday boy or girl doesn’t like it? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I expect it to? Should I take the risk? All these questions go through my mind and most of the time they put me off trying to bake a healthy birthday cake.
