Homemade Baked Beans

I love baked beans, but the canned ones are not the healthiest as they’re usually full of sugar. So I decided to make my own. They’re a good source of protein, iron, B & C vitamins, fibre, & potassium.There’s a bit of preparation involved but they are still very easy to make! These are loosely […]

Mint Chocolate Protein Bites

These came about because I got a huge tub of Mint Chocolate vegan protein powder in TKMaxx for a bargain price – the brand is Bio Synergy and it’s delicious, but I got a bit sick of just having it in a shake. Ingredients: 60g coconut oil 60g date syrup 60g cocoa powder 60g Bio […]

Japanese-inspired nourish bowl

I don’t post many savoury recipes because I don’t really create many, to be honest. I generally use recipe books like Thug Kitchen, The New Vegan, The Accidental Vegetarian & Deliciously Ella, to name a few. I did manage to put this nourish bowl together myself, but it’s so easy to make it almost shouldn’t […]

Coconut Scones

I love coconut and I love scones, so this recipe is a match made in heaven for me. These scones were inspired by a big tub of granulated stevia I picked up at Aldi. I already use liquid stevia quite a bit, but hadn’t tried the granulated version. There was a recipe on the back […]

Nutty Coconut Granola

This simple granola recipe can be customised to suit whatever you have lying around. I don’t like my granola too sweet, and I like it very crunchy so I’ve used a little rice malt syrup as a sweetener & hemp seeds for extra crunch. You can use pretty much any liquid sweetener, e.g. agave, date […]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls

These are so easy to make I can barely call it a recipe! They’re pretty dark, so if you’re not a fan of dark chocolate I would add more rice malt syrup & maybe some almond milk to make them a bit sweeter. Ingredients: 40g coconut oil 40g cocoa powder 40g rice malt syrup 40g […]

Peanut butter cups

These are a healthier take on Reese’s peanut butter cups. They only have 5 ingredients, and are really simple to make. They are free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar. Ingredients: Chocolate coating – Β  Β  Β 55g cocoa powder, sifted 55g coconut oil, melted 55g date syrup Peanut butter centre – 11og peanut butter 55g […]

Healthy ‘Bounty’ Bars

These are a great substitute for bounty bars – they are made without refined sugar or dairy & are absolutely delicious, if a bit messy to make! The health benefits of coconut are widely known nowadays – although coconut oil is a form of saturated fat, it is made up of medium-chain triglycerides, which can […]

Sunwarrior Protein Balls

These are so easy to make, and really fix a chocolate craving – brilliant for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.Β They are rich in Omega 3s & fibre, and are quite filling. Ingredients: 5 scoops Sunwarrior Chocolate Protein Powder 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder 3 tablespoons Flaxseed 90g Oats Almond milk to mix Method: Mix everything together in a […]

Healthy Caramel Squares

Caramel squares, or millionaire’s shortbread, have always been one of my favourite treats. I’ve been working on a healthy version & this is what I’ve come up with: Ingredients – Base: 100g ground almonds 60g oats 20g coconut flour 40g rice malt syrup Middle: 200g dates (soaked in water overnight or for a couple of […]
