Toffee Crisp Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Rice crispies covered in sweet caramel and milk chocolate, the infamous Toffee Crisp. Pretty much every kid’s go-to chocolate bar in the 90s (unless I’m just basing that on me and that generalisation is just a complete lie, though I’m speculating here and I’m pretty sure it’s almost true). Just the memory of that fun-time… Continue reading Toffee Crisp Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Chococcino Protein Balls (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

My boyfriend has a coffee roastery, so it’s only natural that coffee recipes follow suit! As the summer approaches, his café put up a new menu including iced chococcino and I’m hooked. It made no sense to not capture this delightful combination of flavours in my food so I squished them all into one ball-… Continue reading Chococcino Protein Balls (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Fruit and Nut Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Anyone ever had one of those ‘Eat Natural’ bars before and expected it to be super crunchy and a bit more delicious than it actually is?! Same here.  Well ironically enough, I tried to mimic them, BUT with the added crunch factor and it worked- bloody delicious they are! The quinoa pops really throw in… Continue reading Fruit and Nut Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

On a recent trip to Thailand, I fell in love with the food, particularly the dessert. On almost every street corner stood a little shack with wheels selling hand-made coconut rice pudding with freshly sliced mangoes, crispy fried rice and maybe a cheeky dollop of coconut ice cream. I couldn’t get enough of this and… Continue reading Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

No-Bake Protein Mango Cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free | no refined sugar)

I know pretty much the entire population is in the mood for cheesecake at least ninety percent of the time. Me included. However, why I don’t eat cheesecake ninety percent of the time is the cream and sugar that make it such a decadent and unhealthy option. Today I realised it simply doesn’t have to… Continue reading No-Bake Protein Mango Cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free | no refined sugar)

Simple Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (vegan)

My sister isn’t really known for her cooking, but she promised me a fantastic vegan chocolate cake when I was over in Liverpool and boy was I surprised. It was flipping awesome! No egg or dairy replacements nor any chocolate, it seemed miraculous. Her secret(s)…a shot of coffee and a soya-based buttermilk. The coffee shockingly… Continue reading Simple Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (vegan)

Millionaires Shortbread (vegan | gluten-free)

Gone are those days where I would be cautious with my millionaires shortbread consumption. In my entire lifetime, these little beauties have only entered my body maybe two or three times. Why not more? I guess the saturated fat content- if you haven’t gathered by now, I’m a bit of a hypochondriac and with heart… Continue reading Millionaires Shortbread (vegan | gluten-free)
