EASY CHOCOLATE ORANGE BARK (a low-sugar alternative to Lindt Intense Orange)

A few weeks back, feeling like something a little more adventurous than my usual daily dose of plain dark chocolate, I decided to check out Lindt Intense Orange. The 85%-90% Lindt varieties are a staple in my home, so I have nothing against the brand, but was rather shocked to find that Lindt Intense Orange contains […]

SWEET POTATO MINI NACHO BOWLS

Looking for the perfect treat to jazz up your Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday or Fredagsmys (roughly translates from Swedish as “Friday cosy time” :D )? I thought so! Now, before you get started making these delicious Sweet Potato Mini Nacho Bowls, please note that there’s the super-easy version, and there’s the “cheese”-topped version (which is also easy, but takes a […]

EASY NUT & SEED PAN-TOASTED DUKKAH

I am currently going through my Instagram archives in an attempt to keep my recipes more organised and easy to locate. It turns out that there’s even more in the captions than I could recall. In fact, a whopping 87 weeks ago I made a super-fast version of dukkah to accompany a cauliflower, chickpea and kale dish that cropped […]

BROWNIE BATTER NUT BUTTER (fudgy, chocolaty, wholesome & delicious)

As the title of this post/recipe suggests, you can expect this nut butter creation to taste like delicious fudgy, chocolate brownie batter. When I posted this on Instagram yesterday, I had many requests for the recipe. So, for all those who asked (and anyone else who may be interested), here it is… and, honestly, it’s […]

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 […]

VEGAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE POPS (with matcha white chocolate crumbles)

Firstly, I feel compelled to say that the making and assembly of cake pops from scratch is a labour of love. Consider the number of steps involved, from the baking of a cake, to the preparation of frosting, to the melting of chocolate (or, indeed, the making of chocolate!) and the decoration of each cake […]

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 […]

CHOC BANANA PROTEIN SMOOTHIE (with coconut cream and grated chocolate)

Say hello to this delicious, super-easy-to-make treat of a smoothie! I came up with this creation on the fly when the little peeps asked for smoothies on the weekend, and I used only ingredients I had on hand. The results were surprisingly lovely (though I suppose it is hard to go wrong with the ol’ chocolate-banana combo!). The kids enjoyed mini […]

ALMOND WALNUT QUINOA-LA WITH FIGS & ORANGE SYRUP

A few years ago, on a whim, I bought a packet of quinoa flakes. With no specific recipe in mind in which to feature them, I ended up using them in a variety of baked goods, in place of oats. The results were surprisingly good and I became interested to experiment further. This quinoa-based granola (which […]

PEANUT BUTTER, BANANA & CHOCOLATE CHIP WAFFLES (vegan, gluten-free, IQS-friendly)

For Cupcake’s 2nd birthday party “waffle bar”, I created a banoffee waffle recipe and, in the process, discovered the perfect way to use up that odd soon-to-be-overripe sad, lone banana sitting oft to be found on the kitchen countertop. I have yet to share that recipe (which is one of my all-time favourites!), but on the 25th of […]
