Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch

If you had asked me ten years ago, “Leanne, we would love you to write a blog all about the wonderful world of pulses”, I would have politely responded to you with two questions. The first questioning, “what exactly is a blog?”. Shortly followed by the second and probably more obvious, “I’ve heard of thisContinue reading “Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch”

Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats

Yep, you read the title right; I have jumped onto the extremely long bandwagon of baked oats. Well, I actually boarded said wagon a month or so ago, fell off it briefly, but climbed straight back onto the front seat this week and guided it perfectly into my mouth. To be honest, when I firstContinue reading “Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats”

Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups

What a week and a bit it has been! First, it was national pizza day, which I shouldn’t even need to explain how great a day that is (I really, REALLY love pizza). Next up, it was pancake day, or days in my case. Savoury, fluffy American style pancakes the day before to prepare (obviously)Continue reading “Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups”

Banana, Raspberry and Almond Flapjacks

Jump to Recipe I will be totally honest; I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. If you know me, you know that I have two favourite things surrounding this celebratory day of all things love and smush. First, the food creativity and offerings we get surrounded by like a big squeezy bear hug;Continue reading “Banana, Raspberry and Almond Flapjacks”

Fluffy Vanilla Pancakes with Banana and Raspberries

I have this weird thing where I very rarely eat a whole banana in one sitting. I know, weird right. Don’t ask me why, but it is definitely a thing; half a banana sliced onto warm, cosy porridge, or placed lovingly on top of a crunchy peanut butter laden piece of wholemeal toast, or moreContinue reading “Fluffy Vanilla Pancakes with Banana and Raspberries”

Hearty and Healthy Hummus

Pass the carrot sticks, pepper pieces and cucumber slices (or crudit├ęs if you are feeling particularly posh on this fine Thursday morning) because it is time to tip, blitz and dip. Add to that a few slightly salted, crunchy tortilla chips and you have yourself a set up worthy of a party, if we wereContinue reading “Hearty and Healthy Hummus”

Spiced Carrot Cake Banana Flapjack

Three of my obsessions strike again: carrot cake; overripe-looking-sorry-for-themselves bananas; and the simple goodness of flapjack. If you can combine these three oddities to make a banging bowl of carrot cake porridge, it is only natural to combine them once more to expand the ever growing carrot cake-esque community. It wasn’t going to be longContinue reading “Spiced Carrot Cake Banana Flapjack”

Snacks: It’s Not All Fruit and Carrot Sticks

Who doesn’t love a snack? It is pretty much a legitimate reason to put something else tasty in your mouth in between the standard three meals a day we all know and love, and what isn’t to love about that. Not a lot in my eyes, or mouth, we are talking about food here. LikeContinue reading “Snacks: It’s Not All Fruit and Carrot Sticks”
