Allergy safe Easter rainbow cookies



For most people Easter is when you can scoff as much chocolate as you want and no one judges. This year I'm not one of those people. Since finding out that dairy is really no good for me back in September it's really changed my diet as you can imagine, and for someone who loves their food has been quite tough. Obviously being a foodie I found a way around my favourite meals and snacks and have a yummy cookie recipe to share with you as my Easter treat.

Ingredients: 200g Dairy free butter, 300g Caster sugar, 2 medium eggs, 300g Gluten free Self raising flour, 1 teaspoon Xanthan gum.

Additional ingredients (if you want them gluten free do not use the lotus spread): Sprinkles, Dairy free chocolate chipsLotus caramel spreadJelly beans, almond milk.


Pre cooking steps: Pre-hreat the oven to 200C or gas mark 6 and line your baking trays.

Step one:
I tend to leave the butter out of the fridge until room temperature or you could pop it in a bowl and in the microwave until soft. Using an electric whisk cream up the butter and sugar together. 

Step two:
Pop both eggs into the mixture and mix a little more until completely blended. 

Step three:
Next is all your dry ingredients; I like to add in the flour a little at a time mixing as you go. To complete the dry step add in your teaspoon of Xanthan gum (this enables the mixture to hold together because you are using gluten free flour). If it seems too dry pop in a drop of almond milk however be careful not to make it too sticky as it will be difficult to handle. 

Step four:
Throw in all of your additional ingredients. I feel that more is better as theres nothing worse than eating a cookie with only a few choc chips in. So I added 3 packets of jelly beans, 3 packets of white choc chips and some sprinkles.

Step five:
I used a table spoon to pick up my desired amount for the cookies, I like a big thick cookie so can only put 5 on each tray. For the cookies that I stuffed caramel spread into I just flattened the mixture in my hand, popped the caramel in the middle and covered like a parcel. I made two batches, one that was just dairy free and one that was gluten free as well.

If you make these cookies following this recipe I would love to see them so please tag me in it! 

Happy Easter all, eat an Easter egg or two for me :)

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
