Fudgy Brownies

It’s no secret that brownies are awesome. No, better than awesome, they’re the ultimate dessert when you feel like something naughty, chocolatey and sweet. I have eaten so many brownies in my 26 years, most of them full of sugar, milk chocolate and butter… until I started my blog. My fudgy brownies are better than all of these for a few reasons: they have no processed ingredients, taste amazing, are…

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….

Hummingbird Cake

Before I give you this recipe, some of you may be wondering ‘what’s hummingbird?’ one of the key ingredients is pineapple which makes it a little easier to guess it’s origin – Jamaica! This clean hummingbird cake is similar to carrot cake (there are no birds involved – incase you were wondering), combined with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but with an additional pineapple twist!

Frozen Yoghurt 3 Ways

Apple crumble muffins

If there’s one thing I don’t mind about winter (I’m a summer girl at heart), it’s the decadent desserts that are made through the season; chocolate puddings, hot chocolates, apple pie with custard… the list goes on. So, as soon as the weather started to take a chillier turn, there was only one thing I felt like – apple crumble. But not just any apple crumble, a smaller, for-one apple crumble….

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Squares

A few weeks ago my mum called me into the kitchen and said, “Jess, can you make a clean version of this?” It was a recipe video on Facebook by Tip Hero which wasn’t clean – but looked incredibly delicious. It was chocolate oat bars. I immediately said “yes, I will make this clean!” and I did (it’s a win win for everyone. My mum, my stomach… and most importantly,…

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. We were so lucky to stay at one of the best hotels in Ubud, Komaneka Bisma. Nestled in the middle of the rainforest, Komaneka feels secluded from the hustle and bustle yet is still so close to the town (although we hardly left the hotel –…
