I love banana. Anything flavoured with banana or made with banana and I’m there for it. I mean, all you have to do is look through the blog and you will see my obsession for banana in all the banana flavoured recipes that I have shared over the years. My chunky monkey protein cake being my absolute favourite and one I remember making all the time when I first wrote the recipe. Continue reading “Double Chocolate Banana Protein Loaf Cake (DF)”
I used to eat baked oats all the time when I was younger: from chocolate chip cookie dough to black forest flavoured oats; the options were limitless. Now that I’m trying to meal prep a few basic meals a week, baked oats are back on the menu and I decided to use up the jar of rhubarb and apple jam that I made a few months ago to jazz it up a bit.

Being welsh, you would expect me to know better. You’d expect me to want to re-create traditional Welsh recipes and make them vegan and you’d likely expect them to still be tasty and delicious -right? For the most part I do try.

It was a good morning.
As I’ve been craving banana bread for quite some time, this banana cake couldn’t be any ordinary banana cake. No. It had to be special. It had to cure these cravings once and for all. So I made my favourite flavour of all time – chunky munky. As a smoothie this is one heroic drink. It’s packed with healthy fats and nutrition and it goes down a treat when your craving something sweet, or if you have a hangover; but we won’t talk about that one.

It’s Friday and often when the weekend is upon us, all diets go out the window; alcohol and junk food enter and next thing you know you’re wallowing in a dark corner, rocking and holding yourself after realising you have just eaten everything in sight. Just me? I’m only joking.
