Well, this recipe came as a bit of surprise I can tell you. I’m not a fan of mint confection usually but somehow managed to find myself the proud owner of a bottle of peppermint essence. (Long story!) Me being me I hated the idea of any waste so thought I would make a simple treat for the kids and boy, oh boy, was I shocked at how delicious they were. They are simply Christmas in a biscuit. I am now one hell of a peppermint fan. Who knew? These are so simple to make, making them the perfect bake with little ones. Your home will smell like icy peppermint and you, like me, will now be putting these on the Christmas traditions list. Enjoy!! Now, if these last long enough and you want to store any them for later then pop them into an airtight container and they will last for a few days. They will lose some of their crunch but will still be perfectly chewy and delicious. Don’t forget to tag us into your photos on the socials. We love seeing your bakes especially the festive treats made by you and your mini ones. Have a wonderful, […]

For those of you who know us, you’ll be aware that for the most part, we like to eat whole food plant-based. There is always room in our hearts for vegan junk food and we will always be open to the odd treat or two but we are trying to stay on the straight and narrow and keep things as ‘clean’ as possible. We have recently ventured into the world of whole food, oil and sugar-free baking which has been a massive learning curve for me. Now, not only do I bake without the use of eggs or dairy I can also bake without sugar, oil or vegan butter too! Woohoo!! Check out our Family Favourites ebook for super recipes! This is where this double recipe comes in. I have been working on some whole food plant-based recipes for the blog and for the most part they contain one or both of these amazing purees. I didn’t know how easy it would be to make sticky sweet desserts made purely from fruits and vegetables but bear with me people the recipes are on their way. I thought it would make sense to blog the integral parts of those recipes separately […]
