Introducing you to... A Flax Egg. The Flax Egg has been around for quite a few years and often used in gluten free baking. Ordinarily, we find that it is not the most ideal alternative due to the heaviness and sliminess - thankfully, this is just what we want in a pancake!

These are my new tea-time favourite. There's just something about the combination of spicy ginger cookies and creamy vanilla filling that equates to the ultimate win in my book, and when combined with a cuppa, well we're talking maximum 3pm bliss right here.

what if you don't eat meat? What if you're allergic to shellfish? What if you've committed to going sugar free for February? There's nothing romantic about eating something you don't like, or indeed, something that makes you poorly with grim side effects!

Don't be put off by the very first ingredient, as therein lies all the magic. The humble chickpea is the star ingredient taking this fudge to the next level and you don't even know it's in there. I promise. It becomes blended with coconut oil and chocolate to form a melt in your mouth healthier fudge.

Falafel fan I have not always been but experimenting with different ingredients and coming up with these has changed my mind. These are a great alternative for a meat free dish. They pair well alongside a quinoa tabbouleh or salads for a nutritious addition in trying to include more plant based recipes to your mealtimes.

There's no exact measurement for the amount of ingredients here; mix and match whatever veggies you like, add some sprouts, rice noodles, shrimp, different herbs, etc. The beauty of these is using what you have on hand or changing it up with what's in season for different colours, flavours, and textures.

I used to adore Yorkshire Puddings before I became vegan, as do most Brits. A staple of a Sunday Roast dinner and definitely up there with the ultimate comfort foods. I've tried various recipes for vegan Yorkies and while all nice in their own right, some even looking just like the original egg laden puddings, none have actually tasted the same. Until now.

The donuts are best served warm straight out of the oven with warm sauce. If you make the day before, just gently reheat in the oven. You can make the salted caramel sauce a day before and keep it in the fridge. The sauce will go hard, so when you melt it over a gentle heat and spoon off any excess oil that appears.

The kids are TOTALLY fooled. They are dense, chocolatey, fudgy, and sticky, just like any good brownie should be.. But no flour, no nasties, just all the good stuff - packed full of fibre, omega 3 and protein and loads more.

Keep in the freezer so you can always have a healthy treat on hand when unexpected guests descend on you! Once set in the freezer, I like to cut into slices, so its ready to serve when needed. If you don't like sultanas you could add dried pineapple pieces.

This triple layered tart (pie, slice, whatever you want to call it) is a great combination of tangy, herby and subtly sweet - that'll be the carrots for ya - and makes for an impressive little starter or lunch option.
