Best Ever Bagels

Bagels, bagels, bagels!! WE WANT BAGELS. My cinnamon sugar doughnuts recipe caused an influx of ‘I love you for these but I also hate you’ comments. So I thought, I need to give the people what they want, and they clearly enjoy round-beige-bakes-with-a-hole-in-the-middle. The humble bagel was the answer – and when is it not?…

Creamy Almond and Coconut Butter

What do you do when you find a giant bag of almonds shoved to the back of your cupboard? – Ya make that goooood nut butter. I wanted to give this almond butter some sort of twist. I remember picking up a jar of Meridian Coconut and Peanut Butter a while back and being so…

Vegan Creamy Baked Asparagus

Gimme da greens!! In celebration of the Spring Equinox yesterday, I give you creamy baked asparagus, because nothing says springtime like these gorgeous little green spears. If someone says they don’t like they don’t like vegetables, first, tell them to grow up, and second, give them this. Usually, I love to flash-fry asparagus in a…

Nutty Chocolate Granola

If you’ve never made your own granola, you probably should. It’s one of those staple things, like bread, that’s just too easy to buy, and you might not have ever thought about making it yourself. With a cupboard full of oats, I thought I might as well give it a go. I’m not the biggest…

Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts

HOLY HOLE IN A DOUGHNUT!! Seriously though, these are the holy grail of deep-fried confectionary, if you think such a thing could exist. You know those doughnut stalls that give you a bag of five for a stupidly low price? The ones that tase ridiculously good? Well these are THAT. This was my first time…

Lemon and Turmeric Bliss Balls

Being an advocate for healthy eating while also indulging in a love of baking can be really difficult sometimes. Finding a middle-ground is almost impossible, and for me it seems like I jump from one extreme to the other. One day I’m deep-frying doughnuts, the next I’m showing you my kale smoothie. Life really is…

Vegan Choco-Banana Walnut Loaf

As the story goes with almost every banana-featuring bake, I had spotted some browning bananas on my windowsill. This is something I tend to get nerdily excited about as I explore the possibilities of what they could become. I love the versatility of bananas and I tend to use them in a lot of my…

Chilli Beetroot Hummus

Who is she? That colour! That garnish. That shine.  Her name is Chilli Beetroot Hummus and she didn’t come to play. Seriously though, this is worth making for photographic purposes even if you detest hummus (but who the hell doesn’t like it?). It’s true that the more vibrant the colour of your food is, the…

Red Pepper Chickpea Pancakes (High Protein)

Ahh Pancake Tuesday. The day of feasting before the fast. To give you a little bit of background, if you’re not already aware, Shrove Tuesday is the day preceding Ash Wednesday – the beginning of Lent. Lent, of course, in the Christian religion, is a time of fasting and giving up one’s glutenous vices for…

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

I spent yesterday on trains all day getting back from London to Manchester. Wistfully looking out the window I thought I couldn’t wait to bake something the moment I got home. “What could I bake that won’t take very long and I already have the ingredients for?” – BROWNIES. To be completely honest, for some…
