Freefrom Pancakes for Pancake Day !



Pancakes on Pancake Day is something that brings so many memories of being young and trying to eat as many as I could, and would layer with anything and everything. These days, my pancakes have to be very different to back then and am limited in terms of toppings (thank you IBD). But this doesn't mean I can't make incredibly tasty ones! 



Mrs Crimbles is a great company that specialise in FreeFrom food and have brought out these packets of batter and pastry mix which is a huge help to the freeform community, and give us some convenience in terms of having 'normal' food. Being gluten free is one thing, but I'm also vegan so am always making things from scratch to ensure they are edible and go along with my dietary requirements, so having these are great to have in the cupboard. 


The pancake batter mix is completely gluten free and asks for you to just add add and milk. In my case, I decided to mash us two bananas to act as the binder (instead of the egg) and used oat milk as it's quite creamy and has a nice natural sweet taste. I followed the recipe exactly and just substituted ingredients to make it vegan friendly.


I'm not going to go into too much detail about exactly how I made them, we all know how to make pancakes. But, for reference, I used 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake which made for these perfect American style fluffy pancakes. I topped them with some vegan chocolate chips, agave nectar, flaked almonds and chia seeds.



I love knowing what toppings everyone has on Pancake Day. It's so personal and there's just so many to choose from. I'm partial to strawberries and vegan squirty cream ........ watch out my social media platforms for some live Pancake Day action!

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
