Overnight Oats

In my quest to lose some weight before the wedding at the end of May I turned to Madeline Shaw’s Get The Glow in the library. There she was smiling smugly on the cover with a bowl of something leafy so I guessed this Overnight Oats recipe that immediately caught my eye whilst flicking through would be super healthy.

Upon consulting friends on Slimming World this was not the case. I had raved to them about this luxurious tasting healthy breakfast which was tough to finish due to its size. Her recipe was for two portions which made each portion highly calorific so I have added a bit of extra almond milk and divided it into 3 portions, but you could probably whittle it down to 4 portions. I also sprinkle a pinch of seeds over the top and a teaspoon of yogurt rather than the suggested 25g of each.

By omitting the yogurt this recipe is dairy free and by omitting the honey also it would be vegan.

Vegan Christmas Cake

I always bake my friends Jo and Teppo a Christmas cake each year but last year they adopted a vegan diet so my challenge was to find a good vegan Christmas cake recipe so that they could still enjoy a festive treat. I came across this blog post by The Hungry Veggie and the recipe had many positive comments so I used this as the basis of my cake and tweaked the recipe to try and make it as similar in taste to my traditional Christmas cake. It must be good as they requested another this year, so now I have their seal of approval here is the recipe.
