Another homemade vegan and gluten free snack

Here's the second vegan and gluten free snack post that saves me on a weekly basis. You guys out there that understand the struggle to find snacks that are both vegan and gluten free. Granted, there are more and more options nowadays, however, I much prefer making my own and having them with me ready. 

I was inspired by the lovely JessBeautician with her melt in the middle cookie recipe. But because I love chocolate so much I couldn't just have one piece in the middle, and went for a chocolate chip style cookie. 

Ingredients used:
2 cups oats (co-operative - gluten free)
1/2 cup oat flour (Red Mill - Holland & Barrett)
2 tbsp almond butter (Meridian)
2 tbsp peanut butter (Meridian)
Chia egg (2 tbsp chia, 6 tbsp water): (Chia Seed Company)
1 tsp vanilla extract (Not pictured but Sainsburys own)
Ombar Coco Mylk Buttons (Not pictured- Ombar)
1 cup Green Origins organic cacao nibs

As my oven works in gas mark I put it onto pre-heat at gas mark 4 (around 180 degrees). Whilst that was on and warming up, I put the oats, oat flour and the nut butters together and mixed well. You've definitely got to use your arm strength here as it can get tough. Once mixed together I added the vanilla, chia egg and cacao nibs and gave it another tough stir. You may find that the mixture gets too tough in which you can either add a couple of tablespoons of water or almond milk.

When the mixtures all combined you can start to roll them out into balls and then flatten them into a round cookie shape. I made some just like that, and then others that had a button in the middle to act as a melt in the middle surprise.

I baked each tray for around 20 minutes. I found that when having over 6 per tray I had to increase the time to 25 minutes.


They're great on the go and really do satisfy a chocolate craving when you get one. As long as they are kept in an air-tight container, they can stay edible for a week. 

Fancy making these? Do you have a similar recipe I could try?

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
