Healthy homemade hobnobs

My dear friend who hates all things vegan and constantly renounces me for only “eating air” said these were actually half decent and that I should share the recipe. Much as I hate to say he’s right, doing so means I get to bake and eat them again, so, yeah.

Banana Bread

I don’t want to toot my own trumpet, but this banana bread has been called, “The best banana bread I’ve ever eaten.” I’m not going to tell you who said it (they definitely weren’t blood related), but it was said and can’t be taken back. You won’t know if it’s true unless you make it … More Banana Bread


There’s almost nothing better than flapjacks. That buttery, sugary, syrupy deliciousness is melt-in-the-mouth perfection. Thankfully, I recently discovered giving up butter and sugar doesn’t mean you have to give up flapjacks.

Sweet potato brownies

I can’t take credit for these as I’ve largely poached the recipe from Deliciously Ella. However, I have made a few tweaks that I think improve them. They’re a great treat and are packed full of healthy ingredients.

Cappuccino Cake

After a couple of wonderfully busy weekends spent with my dearest friends, this week, I’m taking a time out. My motto seems to be if you can’t fill your time with friends, fill it with food, and with this in mind I’ve spent some much needed alone time in in the kitchen.

Bake A Quickie Biccy

I’m pretty much always in the mood for baking. Sometimes, I’m happy for it to be a two-hour long affair, but there are times when I just fancy a quickie. Here’s a great recipe for healthy(ish) Oatmeal Cookies that take 10 minutes to prepare, 18 mins to cook, and about 20 seconds to devour.
