Raw Chocolate Pudding




When you're busy it's great to have a few fall back recipes that are simple, speedy and only call for a handful of everyday ingredients. With my love of avocados we pretty much always have a few sitting in the kitchen so this recipe for me is the absolute perfect thing to use up all that green goodness. Throw in a few dates and some raw cacao powder and you have possibly the most delicious, simple and healthy pudding known to man.

Green Smoothies


Smoothies are a great way to pack lots fruit and vegetables into your diet with very little fuss. They are quick to make, delicious and so easy to take with you when you're out and about, as well as being unbelievably versatile so they can suit everybody's tastes. I've been trying out a few different recipes recently and the 3 below have come out as my favourites. Like with all smoothies, they are very adaptable and can easily be changed depending on what you like and what is available to you.

Chocolate and Stout Mini Bundt Cakes with Salty Caramel Sauce





Last year around St. Patrick's day I made the most delicious Guinness brownies with cream cheese frosting - the recipe for which you can find here - and ever since then I've been wanting to make another cake that includes Guinness or stout beer. It's still always a shock to some that I'm a pretty big fan of the stuff.

Vegan Oaty Cookies




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 its self when it comes to cookie recipes. Perfect for a quick batch on a Sunday night.

Banana Bread Pancakes with Coconut Cream





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.

SuperFood Granola




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.
