ICED MOCHA MYLKSHAKES (with a superfood boost)

A customisable treat that anyone can enjoy, these frosty mocha shakes are a perfect pick-me-up, containing extra protein and superfoods for lasting energy and an endurance boost. Originally created for the Food of Thrones theme of Redemption, I dedicated this recipe to the love-starved “black sheep” of A Song of Ice and Fire. And, while treats […]

SUPER GREEN MATCHA MYLKSHAKE (+ a Food of Thrones Weeks 2 & 3 recap)

As those of you who read my previous post or follow my Instagram account know, the Game of Thrones-inspired creative food challenge known as #FoodofThrones2016 continues. And with it have come the inspired creations of connections new and old/far and wide. Instead of begrudging the week that stretches between episodes, I now genuinely look forward to seeing what others will come up with. […]

“SNICKERS” BAKED QUINOA PORRIDGE

Peanutty, chocolaty, gooey, comforting, surprisingly healthy (if that matters to you), arguably-better-than-Snickers breakfast deliciousness! This recipe was the result of serious pregnancy cravings for chocolate/peanuts/oats, combined with a need to use up some quinoa flakes. Don’t you just love a craving-meets-food-waste-fix combo? A perfect weekend breakfast treat for two, if you feel like sharing with someone special… or you can […]

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 […]

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 […]

HEALTHY MALTED HOT CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE (plus iced chocolate variant)

Two things led directly to the creation of this recipe; a snow storm a few weeks ago (who doesn’t want hot chocolate after being caught in one of those?) and my recent kitchen experiments with immunity boosting “superfoods”, such as maca. This drink is not actually malted at all, but rather gets it’s malty, caramel-y tones from maca powder. […]

VEGAN CHOCOLATE SNICKERDOODLES (yummy spice-laced, sugar-coated, crackly-topped cookies)

They’re deliciously chocolatey, easy-to-make, have a lovely crackle-topped texture plus a warming hint of spice… and they’re vegan! How many boxes can a cookie tick? VEGAN CHOCOLATE SNICKERDOODLES Makes approx. 24 cookies TOPPING INGREDIENTS 45 g organic caster sugar 1 tsp ground cinnamon COOKIE INGREDIENTS 120 ml organic rapeseed/canola oil 220 g organic caster sugar […]

APPLE PARSNIP CAKE WITH MAPLE SYRUP & PECANS + WHIPPED CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (AKA Hello, my new favourite cake!)

My dear husband’s birthday was this week- and birthdays always mean cake in our house- so, yet again, I was given the perfect opportunity to try a new recipe. Allowing seasonal, organic produce to dictate the direction this cake would take, I searched and came across a fabulous looking recipe that I couldn’t look passed. […]

MAPLE PECAN WALNUT BAR COOKIES

Technically, I wasn’t inspired to make this recipe from seeing it on Pinterest (in fact, it was right here on WordPress), but Project Pinterest has come to embrace much more than creating things inspired by lovely thumbnails on my virtual pin-up boards. It now really encompasses all of the things that I feel inspired to […]
