Apple & Cinnamon Warming Oats

So, it’s Sunday and you’re having your first proper lie-in of the week. You’d go out for breakfast but all the cafés stop serving at 12pm and you definitely aren’t rushing yourself today. On the other hand, you have time to make a delicious breakfast and you need a little inspiration…

I have the biggest sweet tooth and an even bigger love for breakfast foods. There is little that I enjoy more than taking some time to myself in the mornings to make an extra special breakfast that I can enjoy with my morning coffee and forget about the list of things that need to get done! I am always looking for ways to make this morning ritual even more special, and it was around November time that I decided to create what has quickly become my most loved recipe! So if creamy vanilla, cinnamon and apple oats sounds good to you, and you’re pining for a decadent start to your Sunday (or for that mid-week pick-me-up!) then I would highly recommend that you try your hand at these!

Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

When I started my current job, I had so much fun (some might say a little too much) scoping out the local cafés and finding my favourite cup of coffee that I would look forward to every morning. I’m a foodie through and through and exploring new places to eat is almost a hobby for me. Since then, I have stumbled across too many great cafés to count on both hands, and with that came some delicious new snack ideas.

I remember as a child literally grabbing hot, fresh muffins off the counter as soon as my mom took them from the oven. Muffins don’t nearly get the love they deserve. They’re portable, suitable for all times of the day, and you can get super creative with them. My favourite muffins are hands down banana and walnut. However, today I decided to branch out and discover what other flavours I could come up with. Behold, these beauties were born.

Raw Vegan Lemon Squares

1

Okay, so i’m not vegan and I know that word can be a little daunting. Plus, I doubt many think of raw vegan desserts as being delicious. But trust me, they can be amazing (when made right!). I’ve done some experimenting in my kitchen and come up with these deliciously fresh & zingy lemon squares that are definitely made right. These sort of recipes can be tricky, and I used to think I would never be able to create them. Now, with a lot of trial and error I think I have finally mastered this raw dessert, and I’m so excited to experiment with new flavours now that I’ve perfected the basics! Of course, I want to help out anyone who reads my blog so that we can all enjoy delicious raw desserts, so.. here’s my recipe! (Prior word of warning: these are MESSY!)

Carrot Cake Protein Oats

One of my favourite ever treats is carrot cake, so I thought, why not spruce up my everyday oats for a change with my favourite flavours? Now, I’m excited to eat oats in the mornings and I no longer find them boring. Porridge is a vehicle for taste and begs to be experimented with. This warm, spicy breakfast idea is packed full of protein, fibre, omega 3 and believe it or not it’s even one of your five-a-day! I have masked the hidden vegetables that go into making this dish, however don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! I promise, you’ll never go back to plain old oats.
