Raspberry Fool with belVita Honey and Nut Crunch

Raspberry Fool with belVita Honey and Nut Crunch
I eat breakfast at my desk a couple of mornings a week when I go swimming before work. It means leaving home at 6am very bleary eyed, so I'm rarely organised enough to bring a bowl, cereal and milk with me. Instead, I keep a handy stash of belVita Breakfast Biscuits, some dried fruit and packets of seeds in my desk drawer to keep me going until lunch. belVita Breakfast Biscuits are made with at least 5 wholegrains and offer a great source of fibre and vitamin B6 as well as magnesium and iron. Being familiar with the brand I was happy to accept their challenge of developing a recipe using the belVita Honey and Nut Breakfast Biscuits.....and this Raspberry Fool with a Honey and Nut Crunch was what I came up with. I have to say it 's just a little bit yummy.

The raspberry fool with a crunchy honey and nut topping (courtesy of crushed belVita biscuits) makes a lovely lazy weekend breakfast, or you could even use it as a fresh and fruity dessert. I love fruity fools made with thick greek yogurt as it gives the dish a nice tang. If you wanted to make it a bit sweeter though mix some fruit syrup in with the raspberries before folding in to the creamy yogurt. Personally I like it on the tangy side.

The fruit can be varied to whatever's in season - strawberries, blueberries and blackberries would work really well and you could even use defrosted frozen fruit in the middle of winter. Sometimes whipping cream is used as the base of a fool but I much prefer the sourness of thick greek yogurt, as well as the obvious health benefits.

One thing's for sure, this fool is definitely to be repeated!

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Slow Cooker Boeuf Bourguignon

France has always held a soft spot in my heart. From the Pink Granite Coast around Plumanac'h where I spent many childhood holidays, to the sun, sea and cosmopolitan air of Nice on the French Riviera, it really does offer everything you could want, especially when it comes to food and drink.

Simple mussels in a garlicky white wine sauce in La Rochelle, a divine cassoulet in Toulouse... oh and I cant't forget the amazing tartiflette in Les Arc on a skiing trip. These are just a few of the French foodie memories that I've locked away for prosperity. But the best...well, that was an amazing clafouti aux cerises (Cherry Clafoutis) eaten with my then boyfriend (now husband) in Canal St Martin, Paris - an area just north of the famous Le Marais district. It was silky, creamy, almondy and utterly sublime. Such a simple dessert but made to perfection.

Given all of these fond memories of France, when Expedia asked me to develop a French themed Valentines Day menu, I didn't quite …
