Gluten free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

This version is intentionally vegan and nut free but you can add roughly chopped pecans or blended almonds for extra texture and substitute coconut milk for soy, normal, or almond milk as preferred. A note on coconut products: Coconut is classified as a fruit rather than a nut although food organisations have documented instances…

Review: M&S DairyFree Chocolate Drink

Review: M&S DairyFree Chocolate Drink

I’ll start this review by stating I was actually pretty cynical about a ‘chocolate flavoured soy drink’ as I’m not really a fan of dairyfree soy milks.

This however was delicious, both in terms of the flavour (it didn’t have an artificial…

Peanut Butter Cups

I’ve been wanting to make these for ages and Christmas has been the perfect excuse. I made mine with plain dark chocolate so they are vegan and gluten free – you can use whatever chocolate you like as they are just a DIY version of Reese’s peanut butter cups (traditionally made with milk chocolate). There’s only two ingredients so these indulgent treats are ridiculously easy to make. | Gluten Free…
