Banana and Chocolate Blondies

  Just like a brownie… only blonde! And with banana, but more importantly, CHOCOLATE. These clean banana and chocolate brownies are very yummy, I made two batches last week and told myself ‘no more!’ haha. I can lose a bit of self control sometimes. Regardless, I still ate the whole batch. Biting into these blissful blondies is like taking a bite out of a soft, spongey, mini cake of goodness….

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

  Over the weekend I was craving something chocolatey (surprise, surprise) and something with peanut butter (again, another surprise).

Sometimes I love eating unhealthy desserts to give me inspiration and that’s exactly what that brownie did… These peanut butter chocolate swirl brownies are the perfect treat when…

Dadar Gulung

  Ah, Bali… there is so much to love. I just returned a few days ago from the most relaxing trip with two of my girlfriends.

Apple & Berry Slice

  Who knew apple and berries would be such a delicious combination? Definitely not me. On Saturday (aka my baking day) I had so many different ideas of what to bake and couldn’t decide so I left it up to my mum… after all, it was Mother’s Day the next day. She went through decade-old magazine cut-outs of sweet (sugary) treats and picked one she wanted me to make clean….

Raspberry + Dark Chocolate Cake

A decadent combination, this Clean Raspberry + Dark Choc Cake is rich, sweet and sultry (reow). Maybe not quite sultry – I did though make it for a special occasion – my sister’s Hens night. Safe to say, through the blurry-eyed women enjoying the celebrations, the cake was a hit. But it was the next day that I (by myself) truly inhaled the cake until it was totally gone. The…
