Quick Vegan Summer Fruit Quinoa Salad

I have just returned from a little vacation down South visiting family. It was so nice to unplug for a few days and just relax with friends and family. And act like a kid again while playing with my Nephew. I only manage to return to my hometown a few times a year so I always enjoy it when I get the chance, especially at this time of year. Because the climate is a little warmer then up here in Scotland. The Summer berries are in abundance at the moment in Plymouth and all along the West Country Coast. All those lovely berries I consumed were...

And they do both perfectly in this Reduced Sugar Strawberry Banana Bread. 🍌❤️🍓 Jump to Recipe:     Reducing the Sugar. When bananas are...

Grandmas Old Fashioned Simple Banana Cake

I was going through some of my old cringe worthy posts the other day. I realised while they are super awful to look at the recipes are good. One in particular that I love and make often is a very simple but extremely tasty banana cake. The original recipe was my Nan’s and while she always served it with lemon icing, as the original post shows. I decided this time to adorn it with an easy lemon frosting. I know it sounds strange but lemon and banana go so well together. So lets take a closer look at this reposted Grandmas Old Fashioned...

And to give you a little sugary sweetness I am going share something of a rarity on this site.

But this Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosted Hummingbird Cake is a game changer. It is literally one of the best cakes I...

One Bowl Skinny Sugar Free Fruity Muffins

I love a muffin recipe and I love it even more if I can make it a guilt free healthy snack. I don’t often fully omit sugar from these kinds of recipes because sugar does serve a few function in baking. And it’s not only just to sweeten a recipe. It can help with structure and the actual crumb of the bake. I have a sweet tooth so I packed these Skinny Sugar Free Fruity Muffins with plenty of sweet fruits to compensate for the lack of sugar. And while they don’t have that sugary sweetness they certainly do have a natural...
