Date and Walnut Overnight Oats

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.

Banana Bread Oatmeal

I know quite a few people who wish they could have cake all day everyday, including myself. I must admit it is nice knowing I’m not the only one out there with a cake obsession. But let’s face it, this is a healthy food blog and I am trying to promote a healthier lifestyle so cake for breakfast is out of the question, but no one said anything about not eating cake flavoured oatmeal!

Vegan Cheese Crackers

heesy crackers…and vegan? How could that possibly be? Well the combination of the ingredients for these crackers give it a lovely cheesy flavour. That accompanied with a few aromatic herbs and spices make these crackers perfect to eat with hummus, spreads or just simply by themselves!

Nutritional Yeast

If you have never come across the words ‘nutritional yeast’ then I can imagine hearing it for the first time will be somewhat off putting. The word ‘yeast’ isn’t exactly associated with delicious food. Even I was hesitant to try it initially, but I soon changed my mind when looking it up and finding its flavour described as ‘cheesy’ and ‘nutty’.

Applesauce is a healthy, low calorie and low fat baking substitute for oil, butter and eggs. It’s also a great option for vegan baking. It works better for some recipes than others and you may need to adjust baking time when using applesauce.
