Peanut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m on a bit of a cookie obsession at the moment and I've really enjoyed snacking on a variety of homemade treats. These little thumbprint cookies are made using peanut flour, which gives them a deliciously chewy texture and nutty taste and filled with chocolate spread, because peanut and chocolate are a match made in heaven. I hope you like them!

Fudgy Chocolate Avocado Cookies

This is the first of my #WASTENOTWANTNOT recipe creations that I’ll be sharing here at My Life Is For Living. As many of you know, I’m a bit of an eco warrior and I’m really passionate about preventing food waste. These chocolate avocado cookies are moist, fudgy and oh so chocolaty and made using leftover mashed avocado. Winning in every way!

Sweetly Cinnamon Hummus

Everyone loves hummus. Okay, so not quite everyone (I've met the occasional oddball!), but most people and apparently it's International Hummus Day tomorrow, so I wanted to come up with a hummus recipe to mark the occasion. However, this time I wanted to make something a little different. Sweet hummus. The recipe is generally just too good not to share.

Tumeric Chocolate Topped Banana Bread

Although there’s no denying the numerous banana bread recipes out there, I wanted to make my own. I’d like to call today’s banana bread my ‘Golden Loaf’ as it came out a gorgeous golden yellow due to the addition of ground turmeric, and, being a chocoholic, I couldn’t resist adding a little chocolaty twist too. I hope you like this one - if you could have smelt my kitchen this morning then I guarantee you’d be rushing to make it in no time!

Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins

With four incredibly ripe bananas and far too many frozen bananas already stocking up my freezer, I decided it had to be a banana themed bake. What better thing to do when you’re resting at home than to bake up something delicious?  Surely food that makes you smile makes you feel better inside too?  These are really straightforward to make, but still a little bit exciting too due to the chocolate swirl.  I hope you like them!

Jumbo Vanilla Pancake and Raspberry Chia Jam

Last weekend I totally missed out on the infamous ‘Pancake Sunday’, but I definitely made up for it this morning. I whipped up this jumbo vanilla pancake in no time and left for work with a massive smile on my face. Pancakes, peanut butter and homemade jam - sounds like a pretty good start to the week to me!
