Blueberry Peanut Butter Muffins

So the other day I had a massive craving for blueberry muffins and so I started the process of developing this recipe to satisfy the craving. These completely hit the spot! Not only do they have the great ooziness that characterizes a blueberry muffin they top this off with a deep nuttiness from the peanut…

Malted Milk Speckled Cake

Just as at Christmas my dislike for fruit cake prevails and therefore an alternative to simnel cake is required around this time of year. This flavour of cake is one that I have been wanting to experiment with for a while now. When I was younger my mum used to have a teaspoon of Horlicks…

Vegan Pancakes

In church today our vicar told us a story about an Agatha Christe show he had gone too see in the West End some years back. During the interval an American man in front of him turned to his wife and declared that that Miss Marple character must be the murderer! He was sure of…

Vegan Caramel Apple Crumble

This week I have spent more time working on one piece of work than I thought was humanly possible. Dissertation deadline week has crept up on me and the result has been hours of scrolling through the 60 page document changing only to change one word in the desperate hope that this will convince my supervisor…

Peanut Pear Mug Cake

In an attempt (one of many failed attempts) to reduce the amount of chocolate I am eating I am trying to find alternative to satisfy my sweet tooth. Whilst my Peanut Coconut Freezer Popcorn Bars, Banana and Almond Muffins and Banana Raisin Cookies often hit the spot I like to have some fruit as well to hit the spot with…

Peanut Coconut Freezer Popcorn Bars

I mean the name just rolls of the tongue right?! Personally popcorn is a perfect snack to fix that mid-afternoon slump. At the moment I find myself completely obsessed with two flavours; one is coconut and the other is peanut butter because anyone who has seen my instagram will know how much of an obsession…

Strawberry and Clotted Cream Cookies

I mean its almost spring right? February is close enough! I mean I have daffodils so… Spring for me means a little bit more sun. You can shed those outer layers and spend a few more hours outside. More days in the sun can’t mean anything other than picnics though can it? Is there really…

Banana and Almond Muffins

I always find that after lunch I need something sweet. I used to reach for a cereal bar or something else that was packed full of sugar and not much else but alongside so many others now I am trying to reduce my intake of refined sugars and so I had to look for alternatives…

Caramel Peanut Brownies

Let’s be honest, this time of year can be a bit depressing at times. The weather is cold and rainy (or at least it is if you live in England) and there are no chirpy songs promising warm nights with mulled wine and mince pies. As the New Year Blues set in Spring seems a…

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Where did January go?

Can we just address this for a moment? Somehow in less than a blink of an eye an entire month seems to have passed by and I for one am not sure that I am OK with that!
