The other week I won a competition by the lovely Anna at Heart and Bowl for a pack of Booja Booja chocolate truffles. Dairy free, gluten free, and soya free, they promise to be a guilt free treat option. I try not to eat too much dairy so I was so excited to try these. I LOVED… Continue reading Booja Booja chocolates
A little summer treat, the buckwheat and rice flour make these little cupcakes great for gluten free folk, and are a healthier option than refined white flour, while still giving a soft cakey texture. A 50:50 mix of the flours gives me the same consistency as ‘normal’ flour, and tastes so much better than replacing… Continue reading Gluten free banana cupcakes
I’ve been trying to make home made chocolate for a while, but it always felt like it would be complicated. Stop what you’re doing right now and listen…. it isn’t. It couldn’t be easier to make! Vegan friendly and dairy free, and it tastes (I think) better than chocolate – no guilts. Cacao has loads of… Continue reading Raw cacao ‘no chocolate’ chocolate
I make these and keep them in the fridge for the week – so easy to grab when you’re on the go. I tend to go to the gym before work which means a horrid start of 5.50am, and there is no way I want to eat at that time of the morning! These are… Continue reading Gym power: ‘Ferrero Rocher’ energy balls
So I started working in Soho and just round the corner from me is the incredible Nordic Bakery. My boyfriend kept saying in the run up to me starting my role that I had to go there, so once I’d settled in I tottered round to see what they were saying. I stuck my head in… Continue reading Nordic Bakery oatcake – made clean and gluten free!
A HUGE winner for dinner parties. 100% clean and healthy, but tastes like a naughty dessert. Make for guests, a summer BBQ, or just for yourself. Eat it guilt free. ❤ I might keep this up my sleeve for Christmas dinner….
It is possible to make naughty treats healthy, or at least make them healthier. I love taking desserts and seeing if a clean version works, or in some cases, tastes even better! Yes, it doesn’t always work (let’s not talk about the Tiramisu saga) but when it does, boy oh boy do I feel smug. Meringues are… Continue reading Clean and healthy meringues
Quick, easy, healthy, delicious. Chia puddings are the best. Chia seeds are one of those superfoods that you should just have in your cupboard at all times. I add them to nearly everything for a quick boost. They are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, protein and fibre, and by soaking them you bump up their size, making… Continue reading Vanilla Chia pudding
There’s no better thing in life than finding a way to ‘healthify’ naughty treats. I’d been craving chocolate/chocolate cake/sweets/anything that resembled a cake for a couple of weeks and no matter how many “totally clean” things I nibbled on, it just wasn’t going away. Sometimes you’ve just got to scratch that itch. Don’t give in and… Continue reading Gluten-free Brownie
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan friendly choco-banana cake, in honour of The Great British Bake Off starting tonight.
