The youngest earned himself a treat last week as he tried hard at school so he chose to make biscuits. he had made them the week earlier and I had commented on how perfectly round they looked and that I think he cheated and nipped to the shops to buy some before he finished school. He was so proud of them and he wanted to make them at home with me.
We decided to tweak the recipe a little by adding in chocolate, ginger and egg and removing most of the sugar. So, basically we made our own recipe but we were still following his idea of actually making some biscuits.
Combine the butter with the caster sugar together until fluffy.
Add in the vanilla essence and egg/s. Mix together.
Next, mix in the baking powder and the flour. Add the flour a little at a time until it starts to form a dough like texture. You don't want it too dry so keep testing it. The mixture should be able to form a ball in your hands without it leaving a sticky residue
Add in the ginger and chocolate chips and fold them in.
Roll a walnut size piece of the dough in your hands.
Gently press together in the palm of your hands.
Line a baking tray with some grease proof paper.
Place the dough onto the paper and gently press down with the back of a fork.
Leave in the oven for 10-12 minutes, keeping an eye on them. Remove when slightly golden
These biscuits have just the right of crumbliness but melt in your mouth leaving a warm smooth taste from the chocolate and ginger.
Alternatively, If you don’t fancy making them with ginger or chocolate just skip them out. They taste just as good. We made a batch of butter biscuits and then added in the ginger and chocolate to the mixture so we had two lots of different biscuits.
After making my last batch of raw millionaire bites it made me think how nice they would taste with some banana. So I adapted the recipe and sure enough another perfect treat that consists of four different layers that melt into each other. Not only are these little beauties rich and smooth in taste but they are healthy too. Packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help provide energy, anti inflammatory, reduces the risk of anaemia and boosts the immune system – to name but a few.
Bananas do contain sugars but these are natural occurring sugars A medium banana contains around 14 grams of sugar but they are also filled with nutrients that your body needs for good health, including fibre, potassium and B vitamins.
These bites are perfectly balanced out with a smooth melt in your mouth cashew base, topped with the sweet banana and the gooey date and cacao that adds in a depth of richness.

These delicious little gooey pieces of deliciousness are made from raw ingredients and I promise you that you won’t want to go back once you’ve tasted these. With a smooth cashew base and a gooey date middle, topped with a rich dark chocolate, it’s like tasting raw gold.

Thanks to them being made with all natural, whole ingredients such as nuts, dates and coconut oil they are also better for you.
This recipe requires no baking, just a lot of blending and freezing
There is nothing quite like a nice, steaming cup of hot chocolate on a winters day to warm up your bones. The luxurious taste and feel of drinking hot chocolate that then warms your whole body is exquisite! It is thick, silky and rich tasting!
I think what makes a cup of hot chocolate so satisfying is that there are so many health benefits from drinking it. Skip those store-bought hot chocolate packs, and make your own cup of cocoa using real cacao powder; the higher the cacao content and less processed the cocoa, the greater the antioxidants.
This hot chocolate is thick, creamy and so satisfying. It gives you that warm glow and because of the ingredients used it fills you up too!
Handful of raw cashew nuts
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1 heaped tbsp oats
1 heaped tbsp cacao powder
Blitz the cashew nuts and cacao nibs in a blender with a little of the coconut milk until it forms a paste like texture.
Add in the rest of the ingredients.
Heat the coconut milk and then add it into the blender (there is no guidance on the milk, just use what you feel is right for you. I like my hot chocolate thick so i didn’t use too much)
Blitz until combined and creamy
You can add more milk if it is too thick or more oats/banana if you need it to be thicker.
To give the hot chocolate that extra winter taste add in some cinnamon and top with some squirty cream.
