Oat and Date Muffins

Oat and Date Muffins

Life is officially hectic round here at the moment. I'm busy getting ready to go back to work in 2 weeks time. There has been lots of batch cooking for the freezer, buying of new work clothes, catching up with new planning legislation (joy!) and desperately trying to finish the utility room  - nearly there now.

I made these muffins to pop into the freezer so I can pull one out every morning and take it to work for a healthy (ish) mid morning snack - I'm determined to stay away from the cakes that always seem to make their way into the office.

  1. I can't believe you're going back to work in 2 weeks - your maternity seems to have flown. Muffins look delish!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
