2-ingredient applesauce

It’s dark, foggy and very damp in London at the moment, and I am officially in full-blown, hood-up, tights-on, Autumn mode. And to harness all the beautiful produce knocking about at this time of year, I’ve been making industrial quantities of pumpkin and squash purée and applesauce, and stashing them in the depths of my … Continue reading

Vitamin E avocado & almond smoothie

This summer we holidayed in Morocco, splitting our time between Marrakesh and Essaouira. It’s always difficult to choose but they are two of my favourite places on Earth I think.

Heart-healthy pecan, maple & pumpkin seed granola

Until recently I had always relied on shop-bought granola to satisfy my breakfasting needs but, although it’s marketed as a healthy choice (and boy do you pay for the privilege), it often contains a shed load of sugar and other nasties. On top of that, if you’re gluten-free or vegan, you always need to be … Continue reading

Coconut choc chip cookies

Coconut-ty, chocolate-y and oat-y all at the same time, these beauties are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, and bursting with shredded coconut and dark chocolate chips. Rather like a Bounty bar crossed with a macaroon in biscuit form! Perfect with your morning cuppa (they are breakfast compliant because of the oats, … Continue reading
