Easy, healthy banana chia seed pancakes

breakfast / treats

Anyone else go through loads of bananas?!  I buy a bunch a week and wait patiently until they’re spotty enough to do stuff with – banana bread, frozen for smoothies and nice cream, and of course – pancakes. You can make pancakes as “bad” or as “good” for you as you like.  These happen to be pretty good for you, consisting of bananas, chia seeds and oats, so I give you full permission to have […]

Easy vegan rocky road

dessert / treats

In my quest to veganise every single type of chocolate treat I have ever had in my life, the time has come to give the rocky road a once over.  I like a basic rocky road – nothing fancy, not too many ingredients, and easy to make.  If that sounds like you then you need to make this rocky road.  NOW. After creating this batch I realised that I had made a grave mistake with […]

Basic bitch banana & walnut bread

I LOVE me a good banana bread.  There are so many things you can put in them (blueberries, chocolate chips, poppyseed etc.) and many and varied ways of making the bread itself.  Because you’re on this blog however, let me show you how to make yourself a basic bitch VEGAN banana bread. No weird ingredients, no faffing, just basic and hot damn tasty.  When I make this bread it rarely makes it out of the house, or […]

Matcha bliss balls

Yup, officially obsessed with matcha.  When an ingredient makes food look this colour though, who WOULDN’T be obsessed?!  The flavour isn’t overpowering either, so there are loads of recipes you can add it to without making the finished product taste odd. I’m currently on a quest for the perfect bliss ball, so thought try some using the green goodness of matcha.  Bliss balls are so easy to make, and you can pretty much put anything in there and […]

Vegan chocolate honeycomb

Another flashback to my youth in the land down under – Violet Crumble anyone?  Crunchie perhaps?  Gone are the days spending pocket money on a king sized Crunchie chocolate bar for morning tea (or sometimes for breakfast, alongside a packet of Twisties… how am I not dead?!), so now I have to make something similar from scratch to curb the cravings. Making honeycomb is SO much fun, but it contains SO much sugar.  This is […]

Apricot danish

Pastry is life.  Every time I buy a roll of Jus Rol pastry it goes within the day.  Not raw mind you (I’m not that silly… although it does taste nice raw too), but made into anything and everything – savoury, sweet, big, small, as long as it’s tasty. I used to buy danish pastries a LOT when I first started working.  It didn’t help that I worked in a cafe that had an abundant […]

Vegan cherry ripe

Is there such a thing as Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in the UK?  If there is, I haven’t found one yet.  And who cares anyway, because you can make them yourself! I used to demolish Cherry Ripe bars when I was living in Australia, and along with Bounty bars they were top of the pile as far as naughty chocolate snacks go.  The fact that these home made ones aren’t so naughty makes them even […]

Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)

dessert / treats

I’ve been eyeing off aquafaba (chickpea brine) mousse recipes on the internet for months now so decided to pull my finger out on the weekend and give it a try. Chickpea brine smells SO gross, so I was hugely skeptical at first as to whether you could make something out of the stuff that would taste any good.  So now you know, don’t throw away the aquafaba, it’s liquid GOLD. The key to this recipe […]

Peanut butter cups (vegan)

You want easy and tasty?  You got it.  Not sure if I know of a recipe easier than this – two ingredients and easy assembly peanut butter cups. TWO ingredients guys.  Two. If you’re a fan of peanut butter and dark chocolate like I am, then you’ll love this.  Tastes like the real thing… if you were ever into the real thing!  I used crunchy peanut butter for this recipe, but feel free to use […]

Vegan apple tart

Pastry on EVERYTHING. When you discover vegan pastry (hi Jus Rol puff pastry!) you have to make everything you’ve ever made with pastry one more time, y’know, just to test whether or not it’s any good. So far, so yum. Apples and pastry go together brilliantly, and this recipe is so easy you have no excuse not to try it.  If you know of any vegan whipped cream recipes to go with it, holla at […]
