No Bake Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Breakfast Bars

It’s Peanut Butter Bash time again, this time we are mixing our favourite nut butter with Ritz Crackers. Hence the crazy long title of  No Bake Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Breakfast Bars. Sometimes you just can’t get the idea across in a few words and a crazy long title is needed. Originally it was going to be longer because it has chocolate chips in it but sence prevailed and I cut it down a little. Though the bars do still have chocolate chips in them, hey any excuse for a cheeky little bit of chocolate for breakfast.     If you...

White Chocolate Banana Blondies

I found this recipe on Pinterest when I was on a major pinning binge (be honest we all have them) and I knew I couldn’t resist making them. The original recipe comes from Stephanie over at Back For Seconds I only made one slight change to the recipe but essentially it’s her wonderful recipe. So let’s get on and talk about these White Chocolate Banana Blondies.     I don’t make a lot of brownies or blondies, I love them but chocolate is just never my go to thing. I don’t bake a lot with it and its never my first...

Blood Orange Pomegranate Muffins

At the moment I am not really feeling breakfast; the mornings are really cold and dark and I am up so early I can never be bothered with much. So I have been on a bit of a breakfast making frenzy to try and spark my appetite back into life and these Blood Orange Pomegranate Muffins have certainly done the trick. Fresh and zesty packed with little pomegranate seeds throughout bursting in every bite, these muffins make a great quick breakfast treat.     Blood Oranges I have used blood oranges for this recipe purely because they are in season...

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

It’s a bit weird how this recipe for Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake came about. I have been wanting to experiment with mug cakes for the longest time, but in all honesty no matter how good all the pictures on the internet have been I was not convinced. To me cakes are baked and not zapped in the microwave. I really only use my microwave to reheat forgotten cups of coffee or leftovers from the fridge. Or to melt some chocolate.   But I got into a chat with @SweetFreedom on Twitter when I posted my Gluten Free Cranberry Banana Bread...

Gluten Free Cranberry Banana Bread

I know I know the last thing this blog needs is another banana bread recipe! But this recipe never set out to be one but it kinda turned into one. The way this Gluten Free Cranberry Banana Bread came into existence was a bit of a series of trial and errors. Let me explain, I wanted to make a gluten free quick bread. I’m still at the trial and error stage of gluten free baking and my initial attemp was less than stella shall we say.   It was dry, very crumbly and too much on the savoury side, because of my choice in flours. More on that...

This cake can be made and...
