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…

Yummy Vegan Coconut Macaroons

I originally had it in my head that I was going to make macarons – you know, those colourful little meringue discs – but I figured it would take way longer than I was willing to wait. Wanting to try something new that wasn’t going to take all day, I turned to the similar-in-spelling coconut…

One Pot Vegan Shakshuka

Breakfast can sometimes be a tricky meal for plant-based folk. I’m especially familiar with the pains of going out for breakfast and having only a black coffee or cup of orange juice to choose from due to the lack of vegan-friendly options. It can be just as difficult at home sometimes, and I know how…

Zingy Vegan Lemon Cake with Candied Lemon Slices

Nothing works quite as well as an afternoon pick-me-up on a rainy day as a slice of lemon cake. It’s not dense like a chocolate cake, and not as sickly sweet as a traditional vanilla cupcake – a perfect in-between. I love working with citrus fruits in bakes. The citric zing they gift to sweets…
