Chocolate Oat Cookies

Chocolate Oat Cookies

Cookies are a great thing to bake with kids and with the UK currently in lockdown I decided to try to create a new recipe that I could bake with the boys but which would also fit in with what I’m eating during Veganuary. They have been taste tasted and approved by the boys and their dad and I’ve already been asked “Mummy! When can we make those new cookies again?!”

Raspberry & White Chocolate Blondies

I think that brownies and blondies are my favourite thing to bake. They are super easy to mix, don’t take too long to bake and are cooled and ready to eat quite quickly too. This is important as I’m not a very patient person so I can’t wait to eat the cake that I’ve made! These Raspberry and White Chocolate blondies are gluten and dairy free and are really easy to make.

Vegan Ginger Loaf

I’ve got another new vegan recipe for you and this one is a lovely treat.  My absolute favourite mid morning snack is a cup of herbal tea and a slice of cake.  There’s nothing better than having a break, sitting on the sofa and enjoying a sweet treat. What if that sweet treat was good for you? I love gingerbread but it’s very heavy on the refined sugar and I wanted to reduce this and also make it gluten and dairy free. 

Making a special cake with AO

Making a Special Cake with AO

Making a Birthday cake for my boys has become a tradition, something that my Mum always did for my brother and I, and so something I wanted to do for my children. Each year I do something a little different but the one constant factor is chocolate! I have been using the same recipe for the sponge and buttercream for five years now and we all love it.  The sponge is soft, light and wonderfully chocolatey and the buttercream is just addictive!  I’m no pro when it comes to looks and decoration but my boys don’t care, they just like the fact that I made it and that it tastes good. I hope they will remember these cakes just like I remember mine.
