Double chocolate almond butter cookies

Chocolate and banana cake

Did I bake a chocolate banana cake straight after a gym session? Maybe… The texture of this cake worked out beautifully, I think replacing flour with ground almonds and not using ground oats has improved the sponge (and added to the cost my baking, sorry dad) Ingredients: 150ml soya milk (or preferred milk) 1 tablespoon…

Chocolate pistachio tart

Sometimes it’s nice to have a raw dessert to indulge instead of a cake. I say indulge because I went back for a second slice, it’s all good though because 1 slice has about 13% of my daily recommended amount of iron 😉 I attempted to decorate my chocolate tart with some pistachios to make…

Pineapple upside down sponge cake

It kind of feels like summer is over with these grey skies so I decided to bake an upside down pineapple cake sprinkled with dessicated coconut. As well as providing tropical vibes, this cake gives you vitamin C, natural sweetness and the pineapple contains anti inflammatory properties. Slice up some pineapple (rings or chunks) and…

Had some overripe bananas so decided to bake a banana bread as it’s been a while.
