Homemade Nutella Granola

This year I have gone a bit mad for homemade granola recipes. I have so far made Peanut Butter granola, Tropical granola I have even made Sunflower Seeds granola bars and now I am sharing this amazing homemade Nutella granola. I just love homemade granola. I can control what goes into it and how much sugar is added. So many of the so called ‘healthy’ store bought granolas are packed with mass amounts of sugar and sweeteners. This granola only has 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar added to it. Yes I know...

Sunflower Seed Granola Bars

Since I have started my blog I have noticed that granola bars are a bit of a holy grail for many food bloggers. Trying to get that perfect chewy crispy consistency can be hard. For me many have come out of the oven either too soft and soggy or too hard and brittle. I have experimented loads and these beautiful sunflower seed granola bars are the result of many hours of kitchen frustration! But trust me they were so worth it 😀 Sugar & Sweetness I tried to keep the sugar content down as little as I could in these bars. But when I made them...

Slow Cooker Butterscotch Fondue

I recently got a bee in my bonnet that I wanted to get a slow cooker! I mean seriously I am a vegetarian of 30 years……… what do I need a slow cooker for? It’s the very same question Michael asked. He soon quietened down when I bought this amazingly easy slow cooker butterscotch fondue to the table. In the summertime I love to make food that I can share with friends and family, especially food that can be eaten outside while enjoying the sunshine or a warm summer evening. This makes a great dessert to share because people can have as little or...

Cookies and Cream Chocolate Bark

I had an extreme craving the other day for something that was cookies and cream flavour. I have an amazing cookies’ and cream ice cream recipe but I didn’t want to wait hours to dive in and calm my craving. Then I remembered in the shop the other day I saw a chocolate bar with crumbled Oreo’s in it. It was like a light bulb moment, I had plenty of chocolate in the cupboard I always have Oreo’s in stock, hey who doesn’t? And I had lots of fun not so long ago making my strawberries and cream chocolate bark. So I ran to the kitchen at double...

Lime Infused Victoria Sponge with Blueberry Jam

I now it sounds a little weird, especially from someone who writes a baking blog. But I have a little confession to make….. I don’t often make cakes!!! Not in the traditional sense anyway. I love tray-bakes, hey who doesn’t so simple and yummy. Loaf cakes as well, brilliant especially for cakes perfect for breakfast. I am talking good old fashioned layer cakes. Which is crazy after all post war Britain was built on the good classic Victoria sponge. Which I do love but at times find a little boring. So I decided it was time I...

Small Baked Camemberts With Homemade Blueberry Compote

This recipe for Small Baked Camemberts With Homemade Blueberry Compote is so simple its almost too embarrassing to share because it is so simple to make but its so delicious I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you today. But then again I am a sucker for anything with gooey melty cheese involved 😀 Warm gooey cheese topped with fruit to me is simply heaven! Cheese I used camembert because I love the flavour it has, especially when it is perfectly ripe. But some people do find it a little strong so you can use brie instead if you prefer...

Homemade Tropical Granola

Homemade Tropical Granola

I am a little granola mad at the moment. I think it’s because I never make it in mass quantities. That’s mainly because a. Michael does not eat it, he is a good Scot and enjoys porridge and b. I like to mix it up and not be stuck eating the same flavour for weeks on end and lets face it the homemade stuff doesn’t have the shelf life of store bought products. Who want’s to eat stale products? It’s the same with this homemade tropical granola, not enough to grow board of but an easy recipe to double or triple if...

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins

My slight obsession with peanut butter continues here with these whole wheat chocolate chip peanut butter muffins. I know I eat too much of the stuff so I tried to make these muffins a little healthier then many of my other muffin recipes. I used whole wheat flour (wholemeal in the UK), applesauce to help sweeten them, buttermilk because its incredibly low in fat and always makes muffins tender. And I added as little sugar as I could get away with. The whole batch only has 90 grams thats 7 tablespoons of sugar included. Hey that’s...
