Pink Hot Chocolate (df, vegan, sf, gf)

There's beetroot in this hot chocolate. There, I said it.

Chocolate Courgette Brownie Recipe (gf, vegan, sf)

The garden might be my 'happy place' for self-care, but I'm actually a fairly hopeless gardener!

My kids are really not into courgettes though so I needed a way to use the veggies up … Continue reading Chocolate Courgette Brownie Recipe (gf, vegan, sf)

Fruity Breakfast Bars Recipe (Vegan, gf, sf)

I don't know about you, but I really struggle with choosing something filling but not sugar-laden for breakfast! First thing in the morning my body is all like "SHOW ME THE CARBS, BITCH!"
