Guys. I’m one of those weirdos who loves chickpeas. I could eat them with every meal and for the most part I do. But what’s even more odd, is that I have been craving these chickpea cookie bars all weekend. And when I finally got hold of some chocolate yesterday, today I was only too excited to throw a batch of these together and dive straight in. Continue reading “Chickpea Cookie Bars”
I don’t know if this is only a British thing, but as a Brit I can say that we do love our custard here. It was a main condiment, for me, as a child and I would slather it over all of my Nannas’, homemade pies and tarts.
After I went vegan, I started to crave apple crumble and custard all the time and I quickly started to feel jealously towards my younger-self, who would hungrily pour it over everything. Continue reading “Basic Vegan Custard”
I grew up with my mother always baking cakes, for both my sister and I to take to school fetes and parties, and among those bakes were jam splits: welsh cakes with jam in the middle.
The first batch of Welsh cakes that I made on Friday were quite thin, so I didn’t fancy messing around and cutting my welsh cakes open, to have them potentially crumble and break under my heavy hands. Instead, I decided to sandwich them with some vanilla whipped cream and fresh raspberries. I think its safe to say that it’s the best idea I’ve had in a while. Although, it doesn’t take much persuading on my part to add whipped coconut cream to food and drinks. I just love the stuff.
If you have made my welsh cakes already then this recipe will be even easier for you to create.
- 2 Welsh Cakes
- Coconut Whipped Cream
- 1 tsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp Sweetener
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Take some coconut cream or coconut milk and using an electric whisk, beat the coconut milk/cream until it starts to become light and airy; while doing this whisk in the coconut oil, vanilla and sweetener, and freeze for 10 minutes.
NB: After your coconut cream has been in the freezer it should now act more like dairy whipped cream, as the coconut oil should have solidified.
Take a welsh cake and dollop some of the coconut whipped cream on top, layer with raspberries and simply top with another welsh cake.
And that’s it.

Since the weekend I have been craving banana bread, maybe I’m lacking potassium, maybe I was a monkey in another life, or maybe I’m just craving banana bread; who knows. Thankfully, this morning I had time to make a quick banana cake. However, the trouble with that was I didn’t have any bananas in the house, it was a sad moment until I realised I still had enough banana protein powder left to add to my chunky munky cake and with that revelation I heard a choir of angels. 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.
