Vegan Avocado Pesto Grilled Cheese

Vegan Avocado Pesto Grilled Cheese A grilled cheese sandwich with a twist. The twist being this vegan avocado pesto grilled cheese toastie is SO MUCH BETTER than a plain cheese toastie. Add avocado to any sandwich and instantly it's ten times better! Especially when paired with pesto and cheese.  Since reducing my dairy intake, I haven't really missed cheese all that much. The one thing I hear most from people who cut out dairy from their diet or go vegan is how much they miss cheese. I've never experienced that; however, I do crave a bit of cheese every now and then and this vegan avocado pesto grilled cheese is the ultimate way to satisfy such a craving. As I mentioned in my previous [...]

Easy Coconut Chickpea Curry

Easy Coconut Chickpea Curry For me, meals like this easy coconut chickpea curry are such a huge time saver on a busy day. Come evening time I don't usually have the energy to cook, especially if I've been recipe creating or filming earlier that day followed by cleaning and tidying. It can really take it out of me. So I always fall back on quick and easy recipes like this one that doesn't require much time to prepare and uses ingredients I always have available in my pantry. Ingredients like canned chickpeas, canned coconut milk, spices and rice. I use light coconut milk to make it slightly healthier and lighter. The great thing about this curry is that you can adapt it to [...]

Healthy Baked Waffles (Vegan & Gluten-free)

Healthy Baked Waffles (Vegan & Gluten-free) Healthy waffles made with oat flour instead of plain flour, almond butter instead of oil and sweetened with stevia. they're also egg-free and suitable for vegans and those with a gluten allergy/intolerance.  Do you own a waffle maker? I used to, but I rarely used it. I found it so difficult to create a healthy vegan, egg-free waffle without the batter sticking to the waffle iron. It almost always ended up in a huge mess, and trying to get the stuck batter off was a nightmare! That really put me off using my waffle maker.  I must admit it was a cheap waffle maker and I haven't owned one since, so my waffle maker [...]

Peanut Butter Protein Bars

 Peanut Butter Protein Bars I love having protein bars at home to snack on, but the shop bought ones tend to be really expensive (especially the plant-based ones) and not very easy to find! I haven't actually made any in a while and recently I've felt like I really need a good protein snack at home now that I'm finding less and less time to meal prep. Since starting college again I feel like my life is so out of control! Some of you may know that I started a three year nutrition course back in 2014, mid way through I found that my business was suffering because I was spending a lot of time studying an preparing for exams and writing [...]

Chai Hot Chocolate (Vegan & With No Added Sugar)

Chai Hot Chocolate (Vegan & With No Added Sugar) A delicious and warming chai hot chocolate with no dairy and no added sugar!  Have you made any New Year's resolutions? If so were you able to stick to them? I haven't made any as such, but I've been making a conscious effort to cut down on the amount of sugar I consume. A big part of my job consists of creating and experimenting with new recipes, most of which happen to be sweet because they're the kind of recipes you (my lovely blog readers and social media followers) seem to love most! And I'm usually not 100% happy with a recipe unless I've tried it 3-4 times. Sometimes even more! So you can imagine [...]

Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes (Vegan & Gluten-free)

Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes (Vegan & Gluten-free) Chocolate banana cupcakes topped with a lush two-ingredient chocolate ganache. All vegan, gluten-free and with no added sugar!  Since Valentine's day is just around the corner, these chocolate ganache cupcakes would make the perfect post dinner treat to impress that special someone on Valentine's day. Nothing says I love more than a sweet, rich chocolate sponge topped with a silky smooth chocolate ganache. Am I right or am I right? :D I topped mine with berries, because I love the contrast in colour between the red raspberries, deep purple blackberries and deep red cherries. It just adds so much more character and makes these cupcakes that much more inviting.  They're super simple to make using oat flour [...]

Blueberry Protein Buckwheat Pudding

Blueberry Protein Buckwheat Pudding I keep going through phases when it comes to what breakfast I crave in the morning. Sometimes I'll have smoothies every single day for two weeks straight, other times you'll find me warming myself up with cosy bowls of porridge, but right now it's all about the buckwheat pudding!  I have shared a buckwheat 'porridge' recipe a couple of years ago (find recipe here), but then all of a sudden I stopped making it. I haven't added buckwheat groats to my shopping list in like forever and I think that's why I fell out of making them, but now buckwheat puddings are back baby and they're here to stay!  If you like thick smoothies, you'll love buckwheat puddings! It's [...]

Vegan & Gluten-free Trifle

Vegan & Gluten-free Trifle If you're new to the word trifle - it's basically a dessert, or type of pudding, where sponge cake and fruit are layered in a special wide trifle serving dish with custard and jelly. It's usually topped with lots and lots of whipped cream. I know it doesn't sound super healthy, but you can imagine how delicious that combination is, can't you?  A spoonful of cake, fruit, custard, jelly and cream all in one mouthful? Genius!  Before we move on any further, I have a confession to make. I don't think I've actually ever tried a trifle before. It's such a quintessential British dessert, so I feel it's a big deal that I've never tired it!  [...]

Chocolate Cups with Black Forest Banana Ice Cream

Chocolate Cups with Black Forest Banana Ice Cream Even though summer is now officially over and posts of soups, curries, pies and porridge are saturating the various social media platforms, I think ice cream can never be out of season. Have you ever seen a restaurant menu that doesn't feature ice cream on the dessert menu? No! There is always room for ice cream regardless of the time of year. Chocolate and ice cream are my favourite two treats. There is no question in my mind that they taste even better when paired together.  These chocolate cups with black forest banana ice cream are perfect as a post dinner treat, especially at a dinner party. Why serve ice cream in a normal bowl when you [...]

Simple Gluten-free Vegan Crepes

Simple Gluten-free Vegan Crepes Although I already have a basic vegan crepes recipe, my oat & spelt crepes, which is very similar to this recipe, I wanted to make a gluten-free version so my readers with a gluten allergy/sensitivity can also enjoy them. So I made a couple of tweaks to the original recipe and substituted the spelt flour for buckwheat flour.  These gluten-free vegan crepes are so easy to make and only call for a handful of ingredients and are ready in no time! Perfect for a fun and chilled Saturday or Sunday morning to serve to friends and family.  You can stack them, sprinkle with fruit and nuts, or fill them with nut butter or homemade Nutella and roll them.  [...]
