Pumpkin spice choc chip cookies

These cookies are potentially the best cookies that autumn has ever seen. I mean they tick all the boxes for me; something warm and gooey out the oven that I can have with a hot drink – tick. Something flavoured with all the best flavours of the season – tick. Oh and chocolate too? TICK TICK TICK. So you can understand why I’m excited to be sharing these cookies with you. They’re so lovely and cosy, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and with a little lovely hint of pumpkin in there too.

Spooky green smoothie

Smoothies are something I’ve loved for years and years, and especially in more recent times I find myself making them more and more as way of having something quick, easy and tasty with loads of fruit, veggies, fibre, healthy fats and basically all the good stuff. I’ve started adding in protein powder too as I’m quite conscious that I need to pack in protein wherever I can, and this is such a good way to do it.

Halloween bark

Now anyone who has known me for a while knows that I love a good bark. They are so easy to make, look so pretty and make amazing gifts or table centrepieces at celebrations. Or just scoff it all in one go, you do you of course! I love how gorgeous the chocolate swirls make it and although I’ve added in some festive sprinkles, it looks just as pretty without them.

You can even add in a little colouring (think matcha or turmeric) to the white chocolate to make it look even more spooky! You can really go wild with it and add in all sorts of spooky treats on top!

Easter nest cake with chocolate ganache

I love rice Krispy cakes any time of year, but there’s something very Eastery about them indeed. Make them into a nest and chuck some eggs in the middle and you’ve got the perfect easy to make Easter treat. I wanted to give the traditional version a little twist, and when it comes to desserts I’m pretty sure the ‘less is more’ rule doesn’t apply, so I thought I’d make a big old nest filled with the most indulgent chocolate ganache and decorated with homemade chocolate eggs.

Snowy road

I know you know about rocky road, but what if I told you there was an equally as delicious version that comes out around this time of year? Because I don’t know about you, but I love me a little white chocolate version of anything, and these are just sublime.

In the winter the rocky roads tend to get covered with a little snow you see. Sounds treacherous, but luckily our friends with their glitter vans are usually on the case. But they haven’t made it to my kitchen (guess it would be weird if they did not to mention a bit messy) so my roads are officially snow-covered. Continue reading

Chocolate covered cookie dough Easter eggs

Easter is totally one of my favourite times of year – spring is springing, we get a four day weekend and it’s completely acceptable to eat as much chocolate as physically possible. What’s not to like!

I wanted to celebrate this year by creating something a little different, because as much as I love chocolate eggs (and boy do I love them), it’s nice to mix it up sometimes too. We’ve got four days after all! Now these beauties may look and sound pretty fancy, but they’re actually really easy to make. You just need a handful of ingredients, a quick whizz in the food processor, and then a dip or three into the most delicious raw chocolate imaginable.

Six ingredient fig rolls 

I was making my Christmas granola, and as I sprinkled in the figs at the end I realised that in all my time creating healthy recipes I’ve kind of neglected them as a fruit! So this recipe is effectively my apology to all the figs out there, although for all I know, they probably don’t even give a fig. Right then, obligatory fig pun out of the way let’s forget it ever happened and cut to the chase shall we?  Continue reading
