weekend mode

nectarine, pear, banana, yoghurt and almond milk smoothie
breakfast cupcakes (see below)
hot chocolate with cream and cinnamon
homemade mini pizzas with cheese, spinach and avocado

Mmm aren't weekends satisfying? This week's recipe fully embraces Saturday mornings, which are made for lounging about in your pjs and indulging in your favourite things. But don't be mislead by the connotations of cupcakes because (like many of the recipes I post on here) these won't leave you feeling guilty about what you've consumed. Instead, you'll be all set for the feelgood day ahead :-)

You will need...
  • 60g butter
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 75g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • an orange
  • dried fruit
  • nuts
  • oats
What to do...
  • As always, start by creaming the butter and sugar together
  • Combine the egg and fold in the flour
  • Squeeze out some juice from your orange and add to the ingredients for extra flavour
  • Grab a few handfuls of nuts (I used cashew and brazil nuts) and chop them into small pieces before mixing them into your bowl
  • Do the same with the dried fruit
  • Spoon into your cake cases and then sprinkle a layer of oats on top
  • Bake for about 15 minutes
Simple!  Happy baking :-)
