Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I absolutely love Overnight Oats. They take minutes to prepare just before you go to bed. In the morning you can just take the jar with you to work or eat your breakfast quickly at home. As time is so short at home on a work morning, any quick but healthy breakfasts are a big…

Chocolate Nut Porridge

Another winning breakfast idea from Eat Well For Less which I can definitely recommend. I’ve never thought to have chocolate flavour porridge before, even though I remember seeing it in the shops. But my mouth was watering at the thought of chocolate last Saturday morning as I contemplated a warming and soothing bowl of comfort…

Maraschino Cherry And Cream Cheese Brownies.

I was planning on baking some muffins at the weekend but got on Twitter and saw that last week’s theme for #TwitterBakealong was to bake some brownies with fruit in. #TwitterBakealong is great fun.

White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Blondies
