Reduced Sugar Banana Cranberry Muffins

We are well into January now and I’m curious, how is everyone’s healthy eating plan going? Are you all still managing to stick to it, or are bad habits starting to creep back in? I don’t really follow any super strict diets as such. I just try to stick to a balanced diet and enjoy a little of everything. But being as cake obsessed as I am, sugar can be a bit hard to cut down. Hence why I love muffins so much because you can reduce the sugar without sacrificing flavour. Just like these reduced sugar banana cranberry muffins...

Light Tasty Molasses Free Gingerbread

As soon as Winter comes knocking we all want comforting tasty foods and treats to get us through the cold dark days. A classic flavour of the season is gingerbread. But not everyone is a fan of molasses…… strange I know! But some people just find the flavour too strong and pass on products that contain it, no matter how little is in it. So to overcome this problem I dug up an old family recipe to share with you, Light Tasty Molasses Free Gingerbread.     No Molasses?   Yep, you read that right, but we still manage...

White Chocolate Gooey Fresh Cranberry Bars

Yes at long last it’s fresh cranberry season! I love these little tart berries so much, dried cranberries are awesome but it is really hard to beat fresh.
