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:

Vegan Avocado Banana Bread

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!

Spelt Hot Cross Buns

Here’s my healthier version of the traditional Hot Cross Bun using spelt flour instead of plain or wholemeal flour. The texture is somewhat different but that’s to be expected since I’m not using the typical ingredients that make a hot cross bun light and fluffy, but I like denser breads and cakes anyway so I’m absolutely thrilled with the results!

I’ve been on a massive peanut butter kick the last few days when usually I’m more of a Tahini girl. I go through these phases where I crave a specific food and want to eat it everyday and right now, peanut butter is that food! I’ve been eating it straight out of the jar with a spoon.

Healthy Rhubarb Crumble Bars

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!

Turmeric Spiced Roasted Nuts

These turmeric spiced roasted nuts are my favourite new thing to snack on, especially mid-morning time. I usually start feeling peckish 2-3 hours after breakfast and need to have something between breakfast and lunch to keep me going otherwise I start feeling a little irritable. When I say ‘a little’ I actually mean ‘very!’.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

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 😛
