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?

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
