This really is the ultimate, indulgent and moreish dessert, which is super easy to make and super impressive to serve and I think, tastes very authentic.
I don’t make cakes very often, mainly as they normally aren’t that healthy and I don’t trust myself not to eat the whole darn thing. This cake is in the middle of the scale, or so I’ve convinced myself! And yes, it really is made with sweet potatoes! Continue reading “Sweet Potato & Walnut Cake”
Sugar seems to be the big debate of the moment, and I personally haven’t and wont be eliminating it from my diet completely. I am very much in the “everything in moderation” camp, and life is too short not to sneak in a cheeky bar of chocolate every now and then. However, I am also very much in the “know what goes in your food” camp, and trying to take control of this as much as possible can only be a good thing. These bars are a perfect sweet treat loaded with natural sugars and healthy fats and do feel pretty indulgent, as well as mega tasty. Continue reading “Vegan Salted Caramel Bites”
If you want something that tastes really sumptuous, indulgent, very moreish, but free from refined sugars and gluten, then you have to try making these. The best test for me, was giving some to my brother-in-law, who knows his brownies. He didn’t know they were gluten-free and low in refined sugar and declared, yes declared, that they were the best brownies he had eaten! High praise indeed. Monkeychops just says everything is the best, so I will make it again for him. Continue reading “Almond Butter Gluten Free Brownies”
I feel that it is a bit of a cheat putting this on here as I really don’t have a recipe as such. I make it up as I go along dependent on what I am making for dinner the night before and what we have in the fridge.
For the best part of a year I have been fuelling me and monkey chopswith “swizzle lunch pots”, a one pot, no fuss, no mess, healthy dish! Continue reading “Miso Lunch Noodle Pots”
Thought I’d give this a try one morning and was really surprised how the tofu actually tasted like real scrambled eggs. Admittedly what we served it on wasn’t the healthiest. Fried Potato Scones, as we call them in Scotland, or potato cakes here in Yorkshire. I think in the good old US of A, they are like a Jewish potato pancakes. They are my guilty pleasure for breakfast on a weekend and an easy cook up, for when we are away in our camper van. They are the only thing I ask my parents to bring when they visit us. You can get them locally in some shops, but just not the same. Anyway, as they say you can take the girl out of Scotland, but not Scotland out of the girl. Of course, they have to be fried in coconut oil these days.
