ALMOND BUTTER BANANA CAKE RECIPE

ALMOND BUTTER BANANA CAKE RECIPE

The one great thing about going away for a few days is that you come back to banana perfect for baking with. Those lovely overripe squidgy bananas, that I get to whisk them into a nice comforting Wintery bake. Recently I was offered to choose a box of products from TheFoodMarket.com. An online marketplace for natural and organic food that is made and sold by small, independent merchants. Within this box I received a lovely tub of Pip and Nut Almond butter. Nut butters are my fave. So what better…

HEALTHY BOWL CAKE RECIPE

The other week  I mixed up some warm banana chocolate proats, and boy it was good. I thought the combantion of warm banana flavour flowing through my oats was divine. I made these oats in the pan as I am old fashioned like that. However I got the inspo from Rachel over at Healthy&Psyched who popped hers in the microwave. This got me thinking about this whole mug cake faze. If you could whip up a mug cake in the microwave, and banana oats in the microwave. Then maybe if…

I am a sucker for nibbling and grazing, as well as something sweet. So I needed to try and come up with some recipes, that would sort these habits out in a healthy way. I came up with some Maca choco coco bites. I love eating coconut in the summer, it transports me to somewhere where I wish I could be.

I am currently on a short break staying with my mum on her canal boat. I have a love and hate relationship with this. Its so nice to get away and be cruising down the canal, breathing the fresh country air. However she runs a cake cafe off the boat, so its time to indulge and get fat. The one thing I always have when visiting is her infamous cream teas. They always remind me of my childhood holidays in Cornwall. Except with these I get mums homemade jam. I…

The best part of making it myself I can add my fave flavour of peanut butter, and give them a…
