Vegan Baklava Porridge

A creamy porridge recipe that tastes like a dessert! This vegan baklava porridge is my favourite porridge recipe of all time. Getting out of bed in the mornings when it's cold and dark is a challenge. What helps me is knowing I'm going to eat something delicious for breakfast. A bowl of warming porridge.  I often say that eating soup is like giving your belly a big warm hug. I also think that porridge is the breakfast equivalent to soup. Nourishing, delicious and so cosy.  If you've never had the pleasure of trying baklava before and you're wondering what it is - it's a Middle Eastern dessert made with a sweet flakey pastry, nuts and lots of syrup or honey.

Protein Vegan Gochujang Spaghetti

An easy meal that's tasty and nourishing - this protein vegan gochujang spaghetti dish is perfect for quick mid-week meals or Sunday meal preps. I've been using Gochujang paste for years, way before it ever became viral online. It's such a handy ingredient to have in the fridge and an easy way to add lots of flavour to so many dishes. Just 1 tbsp can elevate a dish from bland to bursting with flavour!  Gochujang is a Korean hot red pepper paste. A thick, concentrated sticky paste. The texture kind of reminds me of tomato puree. I've always used it in noodle dishes, but I saw someone use it with spaghetti online and I had to try it! I took [...]

Vegan Coconut Banana Bread

A deliciously rich slice of banana bread topped with a blue frosting - this vegan coconut banana bread is exactly what you need to beat the January blues!  The festive season is over and the twinkly Christmas lights have been stored away. It can feel like all you're left with are the cold, dark and rainy days.  I'm usually a winter person. I grew up in a very hot climate, so even though extreme heat and blasting sunshine seems like heaven to some, for me, it was the colder, slightly less bright days that I looked forward to. I love the cosiness that's associated with the colder months. Curling up on the sofa with a hot drink is the definition [...]

Protein Fruit & Seed Bars

A hearty snack bar - these protein fruit & seed bars also make a great on-the-go breakfast on busy mornings. Packed with seeds & dried fruit all topped off with a decadent layer of smooth dark chocolate!  I use nuts and nut butters in a lot of my desserts, baking and snack recipes. Every time I post a recipe I can guarantee I'll get at least one person asking for a nut-free alternative. Nuts can easily be replaced with seeds and nut butters with tahini or sunflower seed butter.  I thought it was about time I created a recipe that's completely nut-free, but still packed with healthy fats & fibre. I also added in some protein powder to make it [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan)

*This post is sponsored by Califia Farms* A decadent chocolate peanut butter banana bread - dense, rich and topped with a lush frosting. Dessert heaven right here! Who doesn't love banana bread? I have never come across someone who doesn't like to indulge in a moist, dense slice of banana bread. However, this is no ordinary banana bread. For one, it's a chocolate banana bread, AND it's topped with a decadent peanut butter frosting. It's impossible to say no to a slice with your afternoon cuppa. Banana bread had a serious moment during lockdown. Everyone seemed to be making it apart from me, which is strange seeing as banana bread is my favourite kind of cake. On reflection, I know [...]

Gingerbread Chocolate Mousse Pots

Rich and decadent gingerbread chocolate mousse pots that only call for 7 ingredients and they also happen to be vegan! These gingerbread chocolate mousse pots are as simple as a dessert can get. There is no baking required and all you have to do is blend biscuits with coconut oil or vegan butter to make the base, and pour a simple melted chocolate and coconut milk mixture on top and leave in the fridge to set!

Of course it's also about enjoying delicious [...]
