Pumpkins, bats, witches, cats… how are you celebrating Halloween this year? | Photo by Aventure Parc. In four days’ time, you will have the perfect reason to break out the candy bars, restock the chocolates and sweets and all manners of tasty treats in your kitchen. Not because it’s football season (although the Barclay’s Premier League 2015-2016 has already began), but because in four days’ time, on October 31st, it will be Halloween. Children will come knockin’ on your front doors, trickin’ and treatin’. Say, will children end up with diabetes and toothaches as they grow older, after having devoured all the candies they received on Halloween? I used to ask myself how did Halloween come into existence. I thought it was a publicity stunt by Hollywood or Disneyland.

i totally had these vegan cookies for lunch. no shame. paired with a glass of cold almond milk these fresh from the oven cookies were packed with flavor, were chewy, delicious, + pretty healthy, too. they reminded me of cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies i used to eat in connecticut at my family’s bakery. here’s the recipe- it’s a MUST try. i’m pretty proud of myself for putting it together using healthy ingredients such as cranberry, almond, oatmeal, pepitas, + spices. i used whole wheat flour rather than all purpose + coconut sugar rather than white refined sugars. they are also easily adapted to gluten free by swapping the oats + flour to gluten free varieties. //autumn inspired vegan oatmeal cookies// 1 cup organic rolled oats – used bob’s red mill 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/3 cup coconut sugar 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 cup pure maple syrup 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp vanilla extract (also can substitute almond to bring out a more almond flavor) 1…

At work we have been having our own bake off with the theme chocolate, I think this is just an excuse to make scummy things and eat ridiculous amounts, this week was my week to provide so I decided to make these delicious salted caramel shortbread cookies and thought I would share the recipe with you. Shortbread- 180g Plain flour 55g Caster sugar 125g Unsalted butter Caramel-  1 tin condensed milk 4 table spoon golden syrup 200g Unsalted butter Chocolate (any sort) Sea Salt Firstly to make the shortbread, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until mixed together.

Then roll the mixture out into a round shape evenly throughout at about 1 cm thickness. Using a cookie cutter of whatever shape you chose, cut the cookies out and place onto a…
