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,…

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. In my opinion, the healthy savoury snack market leaves a lot to be desired, particularly if you’re not a meat-eater.

Cashew Coconut Balls

I’ve taken the opportunity to give up refined sugar for lent! I mean, I hardly eat refined sugar as you know if you’ve been following my blog for a while. However, while I was backpacking I couldn’t avoid it and since I’ve been back, and in an office environment, I’ve been struggling to say no…

The Ultimate Raw Caramel Slice

Well wowee, what a crazy, chaotic, emotional few weeks I’ve had! On 26th November I said a very sombre ‘farewell’ to my dear St. Lucia – a place I will hold in my heart for the rest of my life. Moving there 1 year ago was the best thing I have done in my life…

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

After 11 months on the island, I finally found almond flour!!! …but I didn’t find it here, rather in Martinique on a little day trip a couple of weeks ago. For people who live around the corner from Waitrose or Wholefoods, not being able to get hold of a simple ingredient like almond flour is…

Grain-Free Garlic Cassava Bread

I’m very sad to say that it is now less than 3 weeks until I leave St. Lucia, to chase coconuts in other lands! I will have spent a year in this wonderful country and I will definitely be leaving a piece of my heart behind with me. However, I have plans for many more…

Egg Muffin Frittatas

I know these are not a new thing – in fact you probably see egg muffins all over the internet these days. But the reason why everyone is making these little frittata bites, is that they are easy, healthy, tasty, filling and inexpensive.
