When you think of Nutella, you think ‘hazelnut+cocoa’, but when you look at the ingredients a typical jar is made up of only 13% hazelnuts! In fact, the first 2 ingredients are sugar and oil! That’s not to say you cannot enjoy it from time to time as part of a balanced diet, but if you want to eat it on a daily basis, why not make you own healthy version that tastes equally as good!

So these brownies were kind of an accident. Is it just me or are the best recipes usually the ones that don’t go to plan, instead they result in something even better! I was trying to make egg free chocolate cookies, but they didn’t turn out exactly the way I planned, so I decided to turn them into brownies instead…and here’s the result!

I made this cheesecake for my brother’s birthday the other day. I thought it would be a nice change from a regular birthday cake, plus he likes peanut butter and chocolate and I thought that combo would go so much better in the form of a cheesecake!

This cheesecake is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.

I never thought the day would come when I could say I make my own homemade chocolate, how could that even be possible? I was so impressed by the idea of making homemade chocolate using only 3 ingredients without the need for any fancy equipments or techniques. The basic recipe calls for:

Banana ice cream is by far the best, tastiest and healthiest way to cool down on a hot summer’s day, in my opinion. It’s so quick to make, given that you have bananas in your freezer which I make sure I always do during summer in anticipation for such scorching days, and it’s so creamy and delicious without any guilt whatsoever!

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get some fruit and veg into your daily diet. It’s also one of the easiest ways to create a balanced meal with sufficient amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and fats!

Brownies are probably one of my favourite desserts. Dense, rich, sweet and most importantly full of chocolatey goodness! What’s not to love?! I don’t think I’ve ever come across anyone who doesn’t love brownies. However, they do tend to leave a heavy feeling in my stomach. Not surprising when you consider the mountain of sugar and fat that’s added to a typical brownie recipe.
