HEALTHY BREAKFAST COOKIES

HEALTHY BREAKFAST COOKIES

I have never been the biggest of breakfast eaters, however now I have made it my mission to head to the gym before work, there is not a chance I can skip breakfast, right?! Well technically I eat after the gym, this makes the whole situation a lot harder. Of course, I can’t just whip up an omelette or scrambled eggs at work. This left me wondering what great nutritious breakfast can I take to work for after the gym.  I am also trying to limit my sugar intake, ha…

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

Chocolate has to be my biggest weakness, especially when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. Yes I can make raw brownies with cacao powder, and eat nibbles of dark chocolate. However place anything chocolatey in front me and it gets immediately devoured. My problem is self control, therefore I do not buy these sorts of foods for the house. Out of site out of mind. Yet I am currently at my nanas. What it is about grandparents wanting to fill you full of sugar? Even when your 25 they still…

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…

WARM BANANA CHOCOLATE PROATS

WARM BANANA CHOCOLATE PROATS

Its that time of year to swap the chilly fruit and yogurt for a big bowl of warm and comforting oats. No lie I used to hate oats for breakfast. I found them overfilling and cloggy. I think I just couldnt make them right. However now I have rekindled my love for a cosy bowl of porridge. I think I just needed to jazz them up a bit. Make them more tastier than the beige bowl I would normally stare at.  Also really oats are the best thing to start…

MACA CHOCOLATE CHAI PUDDING

MACA CHOCOLATE CHAI PUDDING

I have never been a morning person. I have certainly never been a breakfast person. For most of my life I have skipped breakfast. However now I know and understand that breakfast is most certainly the most important meals. Especially now I jog every morning, I actually come home hungry. However I wanted to find something a bit more excited. I have forever heard about chai pudding. I have baked with chai seeds, made energy bars and overnight oats. Yet never made the elusive pudding. I think its a great…

MACA CHOCO COCO BITES RECIPE

MACA CHOCO COCO BITES RECIPE

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. Then coconut mixed with chocolate always reminds me of my childhood, my nana would always have them snowballs where the gooey marshmallow is covered in chocolate and coconut. Plus…

EARL GREY OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE

EARL GREY OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE

I have loved the idea of overnight oats for a long time, but I have found the recipe hard to perfect. Not only that but I have been trying to find a flavour combination that is original and exciting. The other day I was experimenting with Love Cocoa’s yummy chocolate selection.  I thought to myself this could make the most incredible. overnight oats. Earl grey overnight oats. I adore a sweet breakfast as you all know, and of course breakfast goes best with a brew. Earl Grey is a flavour that brings…

HOME MADE POPCORN RECIPE

HOME MADE POPCORN RECIPE

Movie nights, date nights, late nights, none of them are the same without some naughty sweet goodies to indulge on. The problem is normally for me that involves bars of chocolate, packets of crisps, cream cakes, anything that is full of sugar or additives. I thought it was time to find something new, something easy, yet something delicious and low in calories. Some home made popcorn. Everyone’s favourite at the movies is popcorn, and new modern brands of popcorn have been literally popping up on the supermarket shelves, boasting delicious…
