Raw Bounty Donuts

Raw Bounty Donuts

If you read my interview last month, you will know I have had a life long love affair with donuts. Cinnamon ones have always been my favourite, I will take those over iced ones any day. But alas, along with so many others, donuts are long gone from my list of treats as the sugar and gluten just isn't worth the pain. 

But raw donuts, now there's a treat I can, and do, eat! 

As it is National Donut Day today, what better way to celebrate than with some healthy donuts! I think...


Peanut Butter Seeded Cookies

The lid on my food processor broke. Completely. I picked it up after being washed and it fell apart.

I checked my receipt and yes I am in warranty! I rang the company and no I don't have to go back to where I bought it from, since the photos I sent showed the lid would be covered under warranty and if I check my emails in about 15 minutes I will have all the details I need to return the broken lid and a new one will be sent out to me. Great! How long does this...

Ok so maybe I need to stop giving the option and just make something else! 

You can't possibly go wrong with a decadent dessert made from caramel, chocolate and nuts

I decided that my birthday this year was the perfect excuse to make a cheesecake with my favourite flavours.

I wanted it to be something I hadn’t made before and one that was more of a celebration cake and maybe just a little bit fancier than other cheesecakes I’d made. A week earlier Taline Gabrielian (of Hippie Lane fame) had posted a gorgeous swirly chocolatey caramelly looking cake to celebrate her birthday; so I jumped on to the Hippie Lane app as there is a beautiful Celebration Cakes section. I’m not a mocha flavour person but something about...


Raw Pronuts

Raw Pronuts

We’ve had Cronuts - croissant-donut and we’ve had Cruffins -a croissant-muffin hybrid.

PLEASE LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO THE PRONUT

Well, they’re donuts with protein so I am calling them Pronuts! Why not?!

I have been making raw donuts for a while now and absolutely love them. All sorts of flavours have appeared on my Instagram page, and more will come no doubt. These Pronuts came about when I won a fantastic giveaway on Instagram including Jimmy Blacks Black Bean Powder – a protein rich powder I have actually been using for over a year...
