BANOFFEE PIE WAFFLES WITH RAW TOFFEE SAUCE (vegan, low-sweetener & gluten-free)

Love banoffee pie? Love waffles? Feel like an indulgent, utterly delicious treat sans refined sugar/eggs/gluten/dairy? These are probably my favourite plant-based waffles, hence featuring them for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party “waffle bar” last year! Yes, this post is THAT belated… it’s her 3rd birthday today! So, in honour of this special day and in dedication to my sweet little […]

BERRY BURST BUCKWHEAT MUFFINS

With 6 days to go until baby 3’s due date, I am truly in full-blown nesting mode… and, for me, that includes food preparation (and eating :D ). I have had this recipe hanging around for some time now, but decided to modify it further. It now contains just 1 teaspoon of stevia granules for an […]

GOLDEN MILK HOT CHOCOLATE WITH GINGER (a low-sugar, plant-based treat for one)

As I await the arrival of Baby Marzipan (I am currently 38 weeks pregnant… goodness me!), my inner voice urges me to embrace all that is restorative, fortifying and nurturing. Whether that takes the form of wholesome food, a long shower, the use of calming essential oils (lavender is always a favourite) or a prenatal yoga […]

SPICED SWEET POTATO PANCAKES WITH TOFFEE NUT CRUNCH

I have now reached week 35 of this amazing third pregnancy and my focus is (rather naturally) on nesting, resting and comfort food… lots of it too! It’s hard to believe it was exactly 3 years ago that I was starting to breathe deeply again, knowing I was at the tail end of my high risk […]

SWEET POTATO & KALE CURRY WITH CASHEWS

This humble, hearty Sweet Potato & Kale Curry dish ticks all of my “ideal” boxes. A pleasant kick of heat and fragrant spice combined with a vibrant assortment of plant-based goodies (including some of my favourite vegetables), makes for an exciting vegetarian dish… whether you pledge yourself to a strictly plant-powered way of eating or […]

HOMEMADE OVERNIGHT OATS KIT DELUXE (a DIY gift that’s fun to make & nice to receive!)

These Homemade Overnight Oat Kits may just be the perfect homemade gift for a foodie, breakfast-loving friend! I gave these kits as gifts when I hosted our annual pre-Christmas food and crafting day a couple of weeks ago. With one of my friends about to jet off to NYC, the others busy with little ones and myself very pregnant, I […]

GINGERBREAD OAT MILK SMOOTHIE

If you’re like me, the liberal use of spices in food and beverages is one of the things you treasure about this time of year. My children seem to be spice lovers too. And this super-simple dairy-free smoothie is a treat that our whole family has been enjoying since autumn came to Scandinavia. It can be served warm […]

TOP DECK COOKIE DOUGH NICE CREAM (dairy/refined sugar/gluten-free… and utterly delicious)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two and a half years since I first (and last) posted a “nice cream” recipe here. For the uninitiated, nice cream is essentially an ice-cream textured treat based upon the use of one humble ingredient; frozen bananas. And, despite the ease of preparation, the deliciousness and the fact that no nasties are added […]

EASY, HEALTHY APPLE CHIPS (no dehydrator or sugar required!)

So incredibly easy, these apple chips don’t require a dehydrator or sugar. I love them, my kids love them, they’re healthy and, honestly, they beat any store-bought apple chips I have ever tried. The batch you see in the images here were made from apples we picked as a family from our friends’ mini orchard, north […]

BAKED CARROT BACON (seasoned with paprika)

Many moons ago, I shared this recipe for vegan carrot “bacon” via my Instagram account. An alternative to the processed mock meats that are becoming more widely available by the day, this is a super-simple “real food” recipe. And, unlike all the carrot bacon recipes I had seen before I started experimenting with this myself, this one […]
