These chocolate covered stuffed dates are per-fec-tion. And with only 3 ingredients, it’s a total walk in the park and requires no cooking skills whatsoever, so it’s a great one to get the kids involved! The stuffed dates require no more than 15 minutes to prep and costs £1.01 per serving. I personally think it’s a great recipe to bring to a party, have as a snack or even serve as a sweet treat after dinner with friends. It’s also vegan friendly, refined sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. The only trouble you may have with it is to stop yourself from eating the whole tray! Served with mint tea on the side and it’s over.*You’ve been warned.*Read More
If you are looking for gooey, decadent, chocolate upon chocolate then these double chocolate chip cookies are your answered prayer.

It’s a great one too coz it’s easy on your pockets costing no more than £1.43 per serving (and that’s 2 cookies per person yo). The proverbial icing on the cake (or cookie in this case) is that it is refined sugar free, dairy free and packed with fibre from the wholemeal spelt flour.Read More

It’s no secret that I’m a hopeless chocaholic.
I’m talking about the whole works, chocolate bars, chocolate cake, pancakes. Anything that’s slathered in chocolate has my name on it. And if it’s wrong, well then, I don’t ever wanna be right (I’m sure I heard that in a song somewhere?!).
So when I first heard of homemade chocolate almond butter (yummm), I just HAD TO MAKE IT. It just sounds right doesn’t it?
What could possibly be better than almond butter on toast? Chocolate almond butter…on toast.
And with the holidays coming up, I thought it would be such a ridiculously easy recipe to make as a Christmas gift for your family and friends… or yourself. Yes, even if everyone around you hates chocolate, you should totally make it for yourself. Consider this recipe my early Christmas gift to you.Read More
First guest post on Earth and Spoon and it’s by the wonderful Nena Foster, who also happens to be a friend and my neighbour(-ish)! Lucky for me, she makes yummy food all the time and I’ve had the privilege of eating A LOT of it heh.
As much as I’d like to dive straight into these roast squash & cavolo nero socca pizzas (both figuratively and literally), I thought I’d introduce you all to Nena a little better.
We first met when both our firstborns went to preschool. She invited a bunch of us preschool mamas over for some tea and cake while she had a newborn (my son Raphy was also a newborn at the time but you know, I was just trying to wear anything other than my PJs like any normal mum with a newborn).Read More
I thought it would be fun to make Middle Eastern stuffed bell peppers vegan and waaay less complicated (think about how long it would take you to core a tomato or courgette vs a bell pepper), so bell peppers it was! I love this recipe. So much. For so many reasons. This stuffed bell peppers recipe is one of those vegan recipes that is really tasty and really filling. It's just so warming, especially now that it's getting colder here in London (if you're looking for more winter recipes why not try my green lentils and coconut curry recipe here). And really it cooks itself, all you have to do is mix a bunch of ingredients, in one bowl, stuff the peppers with them and then shove them all into the oven.Read More
One of my biggest issues transitioning to a healthier lifestyle was my sugar consumption. I mean, saying I had a sweet tooth was an understatement. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who had a worse sugar addiction than I did! I was totally rockin’ the ‘my teeth are hangin’ on for dear life’ look by the time I was five. Serious dedication I tell you.
This is where these chocolate fudge energy balls come in, and I'm super proud of them!. This recipe was actually my first ever attempt at making a healthy sweet treat. And every time I make them I just remember the excitement of me starting this blog and recipe creating for the first time.Read More
This tahini cashew granola is crunchy, savoury & sweet which makes it so moreish. It goes perfectly with yoghurt (or coconut yoghurt my fave!) or with milk, sprinkled on porridge and smoothie bowls, or as a standalone *I deserve some RESPEK* snack. It definitely deserves a spot in your kitchen pantry coz this should be a household staple!
And oh my garsh, let’s not even talk about the smell of the kitchen when this batch of granola comes out of the oven. It’s just insane. And if you eat it while it’s still warm, you will just die and go to heaven. Set your house in order.Read More
I have come to like the stillness of winter, where all the summer agendas and Christmas festivities are over. As an introvert, I cherish the quiet, me time. It's when I'm most creative. Plus, nothing beats coming home from a frosty walk (that sounds too romantic doesn't it? More like back home from work or the school run) and settling in with a nice hot cuppa or a warm bowl of comfort food. Let's just stop here for a min with the comfort food! Give me ALL the pies, crumbles, soups, stews and curries. Yas. Lord. So in honour of winter, I decided to make one of my favourite comfort foods; green lentils and coconut curry.Read More
So here is a favourite take of mine on overnight oats! This is so good, my husband is addicted, the kids love it and now my sister in law can’t get enough either.
The creaminess of the oats and sweet banana is perfectly blended with the savoury gooeyness of the peanut butter. The crunchiness of the seeds adds a contrasting texture that just turns this breakfast into a partaaay in your belly! It really feels like dessert for breakfast, and that is fine by me!Read More
