Now that it’s summer (It’s a particularly hot day here in the UK!) it’s time to bring out the summery, fruity, light desserts (don’t worry I’ll also be posting chocolate recipes haha!), and these vegan raspberry chia bars tick all the right boxes!
Hummus is something that I eat every single day without fail! I eat it on the side of main meals with salads and cooked vegetables, and it’s also one of my go-to snacks. I like to have some peeled chopped carrots in the fridge so when I’m feeling peckish, all I have to do is open the fridge, take out the hummus and carrots and devour! I also like to have it with rice cakes when I run out of carrot sticks and I’m too lazy to peel more!
I absolutely adore this recipe! This bread is so moist, sweet and really good for you! Baking is my passion, I can easily live on baked goods (breads, cakes, cookies…you name it!), but they have to be healthy, of course! Otherwise the guilt would totally take over, not to mention the bloating and mood swings that follow eating sugary, fatty goods!
If you’re familiar with the concept of overnight oats, buckwheat porridge is similar but with a slight twist. Buckwheat is one of those ingredients that not may people are familiar with, outside the health community of course! You can now easily get hold of buckwheat as it’s available in most supermarkets and online. I’ve also noticed more and more brands adding it to their granola, muesli and snack bars.
Vanilla Matcha Cupcakes When given the option, I would always choose a muffin over a cupcake. To me, cupcakes are usually dry and have little flavour and the frosting is way to sweet and sickly. Am I the only who thinks this? Hmm probably! Muffins on the other hand are usually dense, rich and bursting with flavour! I wanted to …
The secret ingredient in these blondies and what makes them healthy is – you’ve probably already guessed it – CHICKPEAS! Most of the healthy blondie recipes out there include some sort of nut butter. I wanted to create a nut free recipe for those of you allergic to nuts, and this is the result! Healthy, nut free, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.
Making homemade granola is easier than you think. The best thing about making your own granola is that you can customise it to your personal taste. If you like it sweet, add more sweetener. If you don’t like raisins, leave them out! The second best thing is that you can avoid all those added calories, processed sugars and other unnecessary ingredients! It’s a nice feeling knowing exactly what’s going into your body and that it’s actually doing you some good!
I only recently came to realise that salads can be hearty, filling and satisfying. Before starting my clean eating journey, I always viewed salads as something you have on the side of your main meal. When going out to restaurants, I wouldn’t even consider looking at the salad section of the menu. “How can a few leaves and some tomatoes fill you up? Salads are boring” I was so wrong!
