Lemon Coconut Energy Balls

It is so quick and easy to make your own energy balls! It is literally a case of whizzing the ingredients together in a food processor. It also works out way cheaper than buying them from the supermarket.

As an added bonus you get to flavour them exactly to your own personal tastes!

I have already shared a few of my favourite energy ball recipes on the blog including Chocolate Orange, Cocoa Lime and Chocolate Rose (I can see a pattern running here haha) BUT the one I’m sharing today has to be my all-time favourite and – surprisingly – it contains no chocolate!

Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding (Dairy Free / Egg Free / Vegan)

Today I’m delighted to be sharing the recipe for one of my favourite childhood treats – Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding. Its name certainly doesn’t do it justice though, as it tastes nothing like bread nor would I describe it as a pudding! Instead, it is more like a sweet, dense fruit cake. It is delicious served with a hot cuppa, and also makes a fantastic energy-boosting snack to stash in your backpacks for hikes and bike rides. I think this year, all of us have been spending a lot more time outdoors and we definitely need some tasty snacks to keep us fuelled and put a spring in our step. This bread pudding definitely fits that bill!

It has a beautiful soft texture (definitely more cake-like than bread!) and cinnamon-spiced flavour. I especially love the pecan topping which adds a tasty crunch to every mouthful.

Vegan French Toast with Strawberries and Cream

Today’s recipe is for a deliciously decadent French Toast that’s just perfect for serving as a weekend breakfast or brunch. It’s really easy to make and the batter uses just a handful of ingredients. The real challenge at the moment is getting hold of a loaf of bread! (who would have thought eh?) But if you’re able to seek it out, I would highly recommend using sourdough as it takes this toast to the next level! ✨
