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 [...]

It's like my taste buds were maturing [...]

Vegan Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

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.

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 [...]

Vegan Cannellini Bean Dip

This smooth and silky vegan cannellini bean dip is great to have on the side of meals, as a snack, or even for breakfast on toast!  I eat dips on a daily basis - usually in the form of hummus or Baba Ganoush.

Healthier Vegan Pistachio Halva

A healthier halva that's higher in fibre and healthy fats - these Healthier Vegan Pistachio Halva bars are such a delicious treat and can't be easier to make! Halva is a Middle Eastern dessert that I grew up eating and loving. It's traditionally made of tahini and honey or sugar with added nuts or spices like cinnamon and cardamom. I wanted to create a healthier version, so I substituted the sugar/honey for dates. There is no cooking involved either - all you need to do is blend the ingredients together and freeze! I also added cardamom powder and pistachios because I think they both go so well with dates and tahini. You can use cinnamon instead of cardamom if you [...]
