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.

Here’s a healthy, creamy and rich cheesecake recipe without using any cheese, dairy products, animal products, gluten or refined sugars! It’s full of healthy fats and goodness. Please don’t let the word ‘fat’ put you off. We all need fat in our diet.

Two raw, soft and sweet heart shaped cookies with a layer of tangy raspberry chia jam sandwiched in between them – The perfect healthy sweet treat to make for that special someone whether it’s for valentine’s day, an anniversary, or just as cute gesture of love and appreciation.
I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!
Traditional Shepard’s pie can often be on the fatty, starchy side what with all the meat, thick layer of potato mash mixed with generous amounts of butter and cheese.

It’s not often that I would feel OK about eating a muffin for breakfast. But these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are so healthy that I CAN eat one for breakfast without feeling guilt or remorse. The only ‘not so good for you’ thing about them is the chocolate chips, but a little chocolate never hurt anyone 😛
It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of overnight oats. It’s just so convenient, tasty and filling. Whenever someone says to me “I don’t have time for breakfast” or “I’m too rushed to make a healthy breakfast” I always advise them to make overnight oats.
Whenever it’s someone’s birthday I’m in a dilemma; do I attempt to make a healthy cake? What if the birthday boy or girl doesn’t like it? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I expect it to? Should I take the risk? All these questions go through my mind and most of the time they put me off trying to bake a healthy birthday cake.
