I think I’ve mentioned before that I am self-styled Queen of Dips amongst my friends and family. Butter beans make for a really lovely light, fluffy dip when they’re whizzed up, and take on flavours really well from other ingredients.
Allergy Awareness Week is running 29 April - 3 May 2019 and I’m taking it as an opportunity to challenge myself in the kitchen to make a true free-from recipe. These are amazing straight from the oven. Hot and with some melted butter you’ll get a big batch which will freeze well too if you don’t have friends round to help you eat them straight away!
I’ve invited Amie from Fitness Forster back to the blog after her Flourishing Entrepreneurs interview to bring us a tasty sweet treat recipe. As you all know if you’re regular readers here, baking and desserts are my weakness, so Amie and I thought we’d put our strengths to good use for one another and do a recipe swap!
This week I'm bringing you a tasty chocolate muffin recipe which includes a secret ingredient that you can get your hands on right now: Rosemary & Robert cherrybeet chocolate. The cherrybeet bar has fast become my favourite from the range and so I was inspired to do a bit of baking to showcase the bars made with delicious juicy dried sour cherries, earthy sweet beetroot powder and zingy acerola cherry powder.
Sinéad from wholefoods recipe blog Delalicious has become a great friend since my move to Ireland and I was absolutely thrilled (and unsurprised) when she told me earlier this year that she had gone and got herself a book deal through her beautiful blog. Sinéad shares with us a tasty cashew bite recipe from her new book.
Last month I co-hosted a January Supper Club for the Health Bloggers Community with my friend Rachael from Yoga Sound System and one of the starters was a baba ganoush dip. I haven't had baba ganoush since I was on a holiday in Greece a few years ago and I had forgotten just how amazing it is. Who needs chickpeas for a dip when you have amazing aubergine?! It's a ridiculously simple ingredients list, and here I've added basil for some extra flavour.
I love introducing you guys to my favourite bloggers and Ciara from The Irish Balance is right up there. This week I've brought Ciara along to share with us a delicious snack bar that can be boosted with protein, something I've always admired with Ciara and her recipes. Have a read, including my interview getting to know her better.
My mum made the Original Rice Krispies® Treats all through our childhood and they’re still a family favourite now. So when I saw that Free'ist make marshmallows my first thought was back to that childhood snack, which we always called Rice Crispy Cakes and making this a 'sugar free' version of those tasty bites.
Following on from the outrageous success of my Ultimate Chocolate Smoothie Bowl which is basically now the biggest hit on the blog thanks to huge re-pinning on Pinterest, I have concluded that the world is indeed, completely and utterly chocolate mad. So I knew for my next snack recipe in the Pantry I wanted to include chocolate, and I thought brownies was the way to go.
