#CaribbeanTreasure – Inntravel’s Dominica Sweet Potato Cake

I was recently invited to be part of a campaign hosted by Inntravel to help promote a new holiday to the Caribbean – Dominica (not to be confused with Dominican Republic!). Midway between the two French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, Dominica is – for those in the region – the Caribbean β€˜as it used […]

Vegan Double Chocolate Apple & Peanut Cookies

It was an absolute pleasure to get together with my fellow healthy baking-loving friend, The Healthy Beard, for an afternoon of getting creative in the kitchen. We had so much fun making, decorating, snapping and eating a selection of delicious but healthy chocolate treats. Here’s the first of our three recipes, a collaboration which we’ll […]

Raw Cacao & Almond Butter Fudge Bites

Although we’re craving warmer things now autumn is here, I couldn’t resist whizzing up these no-bake, raw treats and keeping them in the freezer when chocolate cravings strike. Oh and just so you know, as I’m posting this it HAPPENS to be National Chocolate Week, so great timing πŸ˜‰ An almond butter base made with […]

Vegan Mango, Lime & Coconut Cheesecakes

You may know that I’m obsessed with all things coconut. Used for centuries in Southeast Asian cuisine, it’s only in more recent years that coconut has become a much-loved ingredient in the UK thanks to its fantastic health benefits and versatility. Also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, it makes a great addition to cooking, baking […]

Vegan Chocolate & Coyo Cherry Bites

Here we go, another recipe using Coyo’s incredible dairy-free, vegan-friendly coconut yogurts – this time I’m using the Cherry variety in this super easy summer-themed recipe. Love chocolate? How about cherry? This combo works perfectly in these frozen ‘raw cheesecake’ treats. Simply make ahead, cut into chunks, then pop out the freezer when chocolate cravings […]

No refined sugar Carob-Coated Banana Donuts

I’m always on the lookout for quirky, cool and unusual products on the ever-growing health food market, especially if they are natural and contain limited / no added sugars. That’s why Supertreats carob bars caught my eye on Instagram, despite being primarily aimed at kids. A healthier chocolate bar alternative? Erm, although I’m an adult […]

Raspberry & Rhubarb Crumble Breakfast Bars

As part of a campaign coinciding with Olympic fever, I was invited to take part in Meridian’s #BreakfastofChampions challenge, showing how easy and delicious it is to incorporate their nut butters in your breakfast to fuel your day. The brand’s peanut, almond and cashew butters are packed with protein (with at least 20-30g per 100g), […]

Vegan Nutty Salted Caramel Rolla Granola Cheesecake

You may have seen my healthy Chocolate, Chilli & Raspberry Brownie recipe – now onto my second recipe working with the wonderful Rolla Granola team…I think this one deserves a *drum roll* just because it was absolutely spectacular (if I do say so myself)… Say hello to this super impressive (but pretty simple to make) […]

VEGAN Strawberry, Orange & Chocolate Muffins

Another strawberry recipe, because it’s (supposedly) summer and Wimbledon is in full swing! I’m extra excited about this recipe, not only because these muffins are so bloody delicious and include my favourite raw, vegan-friendly chocolate from the Conscious Chocolate guys… But also because the lovely Chyaz made a video of this recipe over on her […]

VEGAN Raw Cherry, Almond & Acai Cheesecake

Summer goes hand-in-hand with berries and chilled/frozen desserts. Which is why I thought it was time to post a recipe especially for the warmer weather we’re currently having in the UK (temperatures about 20 degrees – shocking, right?!). So, here’s a very simple but stunning dessert that you can make in advance and serve up […]

VEGAN Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

I’m really getting into vegan-friendly baking recently, as I’m discovering new techniques and combinations of ingredients that work to create a tasty, delicious and healthy result. I’ll say here that although I’m not vegan myself, I follow very much a plant-based diet with the occasional inclusion of meat, fish and dairy; for me, it’s all […]
