Low-Carb Mince Pies

Low-Carb Mince Pies

I recently asked my readers whether there was anything Christmas food related that they would like to see a low-carb alternative for.  The messages flooded in. Everything from eggnog and twiglets to brandy butter and turkey sandwiches. Mince pies appeared a grand total of 35 […]

Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

This cake is currently being made on a weekly basis in our house. Florence (my one year old daughter) adores it. She sometimes has a slice for breakfast usually with a rather mismatched side of avocado (her most favourite food). Otherwise I will pop it […]

4 ingredient banana and chocolate chip loaf

4 ingredient banana and chocolate chip loaf

With only 4 ingredients, this is probably the most simple nut free, grain free and dairy free banana bread loaf you will find. It was created at 11pm a few nights ago. We are moving house today but at the time I was busy packing […]

Mini four ingredient banana and blueberry pancakes (for babies and adults too)

Mini four ingredient banana and blueberry pancakes (for babies and adults too)

I have been weaning Florence now for 4 months and it’s been such an enjoyable and exciting process. Watching her try new flavours and textures; going from puree to mashed food, then finger food to 3 full meals a day. There is currently nothing she […]

Double Chocolate Caramel Shortbread Squares

Double Chocolate Caramel Shortbread Squares

There is nothing more indulgent than chocolate, creamy caramel and a buttery shortbread base and this recipe is just that, but without the added sugar, grains, dairy or other additives. It’s one of my favourite recipes and one that I have made, to date, eight times […]

A cake that unites the whole family and a firm favourite in our household. This cake is light, moist and really simple to make with a deliciously decadent texture. Great for any occasion but especially perfect at Christmas and for those who are not fans of […]

Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread

A few weeks ago I was sent a grocery “essentials” box from a company called Bearfaced Groceries , an online grocer who deliver straight to your front door. It was full to the brim with incredibly fresh fruits, veg and grass-fed beef, salmon and chicken. The one […]

Guilt-Free Cinnamon Spiced Rustic Apple Pie

Guilt-Free Cinnamon Spiced Rustic Apple Pie

There is nothing better, in my opinion, than a Sunday roast followed by some cinnamon spiced apple pie and homemade custard. It’s one meal that brings people together, families, friends and acquaintances and it’s certainly a popular one for us. I love preparing big feasts […]

Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream Pops (Sugar-Free & Vegan)

Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream Pops (Sugar-Free & Vegan)

I am so excited to share this recipe for hazelnut chocolate ice cream pops, not only because they literally taste like Nutella on a stick but this recipe also has absolutely no sugar in it. It’s creamy, chocolaty and indulgent but completely guilt free. It’s quite similar to […]

Raw Chocolate Shortbread Squares

Raw Chocolate Shortbread Squares

Other than the first week or so of pregnancy where I had a huge obsession with eating the most sour oranges I could find (and before being struck down with Hyperemesis Gravidarum), I haven’t had any cravings. Not one. It’s the first question that everyone who […]

Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Nests (Raw / Vegan / Paleo)

These double chocolate hazelnut cream nests my friends, are hands down the best sweet treat recipe on my blog so far. They are unbelievably delicious whilst being raw, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free AND refined sugar-free. Fun to make, great for kids and they won’t take your […]

5 Ingredient Cinnamon Spiced Christmas Cookies

5 Ingredient Cinnamon Spiced Christmas Cookies

There’s nothing better at Christmas than a deliciously spiced biscuit, one that you know isn’t going to send your blood sugars crazy, make you feel heavy and lethargic or cause that well-known gluten-causing bloat. These biscuits have a desirable crunch but  also hold their chew. […]
