COCONUT CHIA PUDDING WITH PASSIONFRUIT

I'm sure the world doesn't need another chia seed pudding recipe, but I couldn't help myself, as this variation is so easy (and pretty!). The recipe calls for coconut cream and a touch of maple, although just enough to enhance without being overly sweet. The most delicious inclusion, however, is a spoonful of fresh, tangy passionfruit. It's beautiful, vibrant and lusciously creamy, you might like to try it this weekend?

PEANUT BUTTER MUESLI BARS

Eleanor Ozich SWEET DELIGHTS VEGAN WHOLESOME BAKING

PEANUT BUTTER MUESLI BARS

To put it simply, these two minute muesli bars are too easy not to make, particularly if you have a thing for peanut butter, like I do! The recipe is wonderfully adaptable, for instance, you could use almond butter if you're not a fan of peanut, or pumpkin seed butter to become nut-free. It keeps in the freezer well too, and so I often make up a few batches.  1 1/2 cups rolled oats1 cup seeds, I used pumpkin and sunflower1/2 cup dried coconut, I like shredded1/4 cup maple, honey or coconut nectar1/3 cup peanut butter, or almond butter1/4 cup melted coconut...

CINNAMON BAKED PEARS

    Here's a simple recipe for gently spiced pear chips, enhanced by a sprinkle of sweet, musky cinnamon, and baked until crisp. There are several good things you might want to consider eating alongside your chips; a sharp, salty cheese such as blue vein, or a gentler, creamy cheese is pleasing too. Or if you prefer, these crunchy little chips are of course, a satisfyingly delicious snack all by themselves. I've shared the recipe in this week's column for Viva. x Eleanor
