You know when I use my proper camera rather than just my iPhone to take photos for a blog post that I'm really proud of it. Honestly, I think this might be the most beautiful thing I've ever made, and it's bloody delicious too. I challenged myself to make a completely dairy, gluten and sugar-free cake which was equally scrumptious as all the rest - I think I've done it. But check out the recipe below and decide for yourself!
Soft, chocolate-y and oh-so-caramel. These dough balls are the perfect combination of salty caramel and sweet but without the bad stuff! They're gluten-free and dairy-free making them the perfect sweet snack on the go or while you're in lockdown.
There is something so delicious about the classic Banana Choc-Chip muffin. I was determined to make a guilt-free version, which was still delicious and with any luck nutritious. We finished our first batch of these muffins within a few hours, so I’d call that a success! Check out the gluten-free and dairy-free recipe below!
The perfect chocolate and coconut slice. Nothing beats a family recipe. My mum (Morag) was working through a few boxes left over from my grandmothers house and she found this recipe from her childhood. She instantly recognised it as a recipe her mum (my grandmother) would make for her all the time when she was a child. The recipe was named, ‘Morag’s Specials’ and we knew that we’d have to make it together! Check out the new and improved recipe interpretation below!
These are the most delicious, guilt-free muffins which the kids will be begging for in their lunchboxes. Refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free with a burst of freshness from the raspberries. We love everything about these muffins and we’re sure you will too.

These cookies are a family favourite. They are the perfect blend of salty, sweet, chewy and crunchy. It’s hard to tear yourself away from the cookie jar and why would you want to?!
