These cookies may just be a game changer. I've made quite a few variations on vegan cookies and these are definitely one of my favourites.
For starters - they only take 5 ingredients and are insanely easy to make - now this is pretty good in it's self when it comes to cookie recipes. Perfect for a quick batch on a Sunday night.

Happy Pancake Day everyone! I'm not entirely sure how we've already reached March...it's a cliche, I know and something I've already said dozens of times this year, but time really is flying by. There are no complaints here though as there's already so much to look forward to this year and Spring is finally (albeit tentatively) starting to show her lovely face.

We all know how I feel about breakfast - if you're going to do it, do it right.
In an ideal world, every morning I would sit and relax, read a little, have some tea or coffee and cook up something delicious; all whilst still in the comfort of my pyjamas. Unfortunately I rarely have time to do this and sadly opt for no breakfast at all, always choosing to snooze for a few precious extra minutes when I'm getting up early for work.

Everybody loves Nutella. That, my friends, is a fact.
Never have I met anyone who doesn't like the stuff - whether they have it on toast or with fruit, use it in baking or eat it just straight out the jar with a spoon (a very dangerous move and a sure way to end up holding an empty jar..) - everyone loves it.

After the success of the raw caramel slices that I made recently, I was more open minded to raw desserts and felt confident as to how a raw banoffee pie would turn out. Naturally though, I wasn't going to risk taking a dud pie to my friends for dinner so I had to make sure it was up to scratch before anyone else got to try it.
I cut a slither to test and fell whole heartedly in love! It tasted just like a classic banoffee pie, but with the bonus of only containing the goodness of oats, nuts, fruit and coconut milk. I couldn't believe just how good it was.

This was my first venture into the world of raw desserts and I have to admit, I was pretty sceptical.
My very first recipe on my blog was my Granny's Caramel Shortbreads, a recipe that is still a favourite and forever requested by friends and family alike. And though I have tried to create new versions of it - the goal being to create a similar thing but without dairy or wheat, they've been good, but they've never quite beaten the real thing. I've never been one to give up on a challenge; especially a self appointed one, so I've tried and tried and now I think I've finally gotten somewhere.
