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 crudités 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”

American Style Fluffy Pancakes with Bacon and Syrup

There might be a particular day dedicated to using up all our bits and bobs in the kitchen cupboard, but pancakes are best enjoyed all year round and not always just for breakfast. Whether it’s sweet, savoury or a mixture of both that takes your fancy, the amount of flavour combinations to pimp up yourContinue reading “American Style Fluffy Pancakes with Bacon and Syrup”

Spiced Banana Pancakes with Chocolate, Yoghurt, Strawberries, Walnuts and Honey

It is Monday morning and my bathroom is finally being ripped out; so-long blue tiles and shower head that is just slightly too short for my height! Amongst the smashing of tiles, the yellow and slightly spotty view of three bananas, calling out to be transformed into something tasty before it is too late (theContinue reading “Spiced Banana Pancakes with Chocolate, Yoghurt, Strawberries, Walnuts and Honey”

Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Flapjack

There are two things in life I am a little obsessed by. One: peanut butter. Two: not wasting overripe bananas. Hang on, make that three things. Three: the amazing sweet and savoury combination of peanut butter AND banana! It is just so damn good! Unless you are my father-in-law who hates this combo and justContinue reading “Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Flapjack”
