• Healthy Mango Muffins (vegan)

    Mango, in November? I know what you’re thinking – I’ve gone crazy. Or clearly moved to some hot, exotic country and not mentioned it. Nope – neither. I have, however, discovered canned mango pulp from my supermarket. Enter: mango curry (thank you Vegan Richa), mango oatmeal, mango pancakes, and healthy mango muffins. All. Year. Round.

  • Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

    These hot chocolate marshmallow cookies are the perfect cookie to enjoy on a cold, winter evening – and even better dunked into a steaming hot mug of… well, anything. My favourite is a homemade mocha or just a hot chocolate. The melted marshmallows make a divine combination.

  • Easy Vegan Marshmallow Rice Crispy Treats

    I have a sneaky confession: I really like this kind of treat. The fact that they require NO BAKING (just a little melting) and they aren’t that hard to clean up after doesn’t hurt either, let’s face it. But in all seriousness, these little (or not that little – it’s up to you when you slice them) marshmallow treats are like little bites of childhood for me.

  • Healthy Blueberry Muffins (Vegan)

    Do you ever have those times where you just really don’t feel like baking? Or cooking? Or really doing much of anything in the kitchen? That’s been me for the past few weeks and so last week I completely gave into the feeling. No post, no social media, no emails… I just took myself on a little break. Well, not really a break because I still had work and the rest of life going on, but nothing food-related progressed until yesterday. Like a little niggle in the back of my brain, the desire to make something came back and I was out to the shops to pick up some ingredients as soon as the opened. The first thing I did after stepping foot in the kitchen was to whip up a batch of my healthy blueberry muffins, which I first made a few months ago and held off posting until I could make them again.

  • Vegan Mocha Chocolate Flapjacks

    Flapjacks – so easy to make, but so rare to find in my house. Generally speaking, when I want something baked and chocolatey, I’ll make some kind of chocolate muffin or cupcake. But, I feel like I’ve done a lot of that lately and this time, I wanted something with the ease and convenience of a tray bake.

  • Easy Peasey Vegan Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

    Two flavours (along with several others) synonymous with Winter its festivities for me are chocolate and mint! Peppermint candy cane anyone? So I’ve perfected a vegan mint chocolate cupcake that comes in at under 150 calories a cake, and takes less than 25 minutes to make! Win!

  • Zingy Lemon Cupcakes (vegan)

    Triple lemon threat cupcakes are a thing of beauty. A light, citrus lemon cake, hidden homemade lemon curd filling, and sweet, thick, creamy lemon frosting. I think, personally, lemon cupcakes are perfect for the summer months, when you want a flavour that doesn’t ‘feel’ as dense as something like a red velvet, or a chocolate cake. You know what I mean?

  • Leftover Chocolate Cake Cookies

    Don’t bake whilst under the influence of alcohol. I learned this the hard way: when I had to start baking a second birthday cake (for my mum), starting at 10 pm at night, after the first turned out too dry. Still, I found the silver lining to my baking debacle. Leftover chocolate cake cookies!

  • Vegan Oreo Brownies

    Nothing seems to prompt cries of “Oh, I really shouldn’t…” like the offer of a brownie. The thing is, that phrase is nearly always followed (like, 75% of the time?) by a self-deprecating smile, and a hand reaching for the brownie. The chances seem in to increase to a near certainty when homemade chocolate Oreo brownies are the offer.
