Nutty Sultana Banana Bread (GF, Vegan)

Cor, I absolutely love banana bread. It’s so hearty and indulgent, and incredibly easy to make. This is not my only banana loaf recipe on the site (see my spelt banana bread made in sunny St. Lucia for an alternative), but it’s a very different variety in terms of ingredients and flavour. This version is hearty,…

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Frittata

A great lunch or dinner option when you want something quick and substantial. This is also a lovely one to make when you’re having guests over for brunch.

Mediterranean Savoury Oat Bars

It’s amazing how many healthy snacks that are now on the market. However, a good 85% of them are sweet.

Apple Pie Chia Porridge (Vegan)

So the winter weather is really beginning to settle in now! Two of the most satisfying perks to the winter months are fashionable layers and warming food. Now I’m back in London, I am embracing both. There is nothing better on a cold, misty morning than tucking into a heart bowl of creamy, healthy porridge….

Date, Fig and Banana Flapjacks (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

I’m going to be honest. These were a bit of an experiment. I had an overripe banana and some figs and the desire to whip up a high-energy snack for the 3pm slump at work. The result was pretty good so I’d thought I would share the recipe with you. However, it could be improved,…
