Strawberry & Rhubarb Tart
I’ve only discovered the full charm of rhubarb a couple of months ago, when I couldn’t resist buying this most beautiful looking bunch at a local farmer’s market. First time using it, I made a simple jam, and we’ve ever since been hooked on the tanginess, and of course, the bright appealing red helps as…
Apricot & Pistachio Tart
An indulgent yet fresh tart, perfect for any season.
The simplest healthy crumble with a juicy berry base.
Sticky Sourdough Cinnamon Scrolls
These are not your traditional cinnamon scrolls but more like a cross between walnut sticky buns, where the stickiness comes from maple syrup, and cinnamon scrolls. As I am trying to do most of my pastry and bread baking using sourdough starter , I applied this with this recipe as well. The recipe is very…
Vegan Macadamia Fudge
Realising there’s no way of winning there, I’ve stopped fighting my evening sweet-tooth cravings a while ago but I do still like to keep those after-dinner treats on the healthier side, without crazy amounts of sugar, especially with these snacking-prone times we find ourselves in (aka lock-downs and such).

If you’re a fan of darker, less sweet chocolates, it will definitely hit that chocolate craving spot, while still being very clean, ingredients wise. It’s super low in sugar content too, a little splash of maple syrup is all you’ll need….
Almond and Cranberry Biscotti
Growing up in Slovenia, being surrounded by many countries with such rich food traditions definitely has many perks, as many of them are only a short drive away. Italy, with all its goodness, is definitely one of them, and being able to finish a meal with some crunchy almond biscotti… These biscuits are so comforting…
Sourdough Hot Cross Buns
A wholesome version of an Easter classic.
Vegan Banana Bread
This recipe ticks many boxes for a sweet and indulgent yet quite healthy and wholesome breakfast. It is vegan but you can easily substitute some vegan ingredients for their non-vegan equivalents if you do wish so. Even though it is made mainly from ingredients considered healthy and contains very little sugar and added oil it…
Peanut Butter Slice
Vegan, refined-sugar free, gluten-free, low on carbs while packed with all the good fats and protein, these little slices are a lovely nutritious snack when you feel like a little treat. And they are incredibly filling so a great go-to on a busy day, when you don’t have time to prepare your meals as well….
