  • Banana Bread Vegan

    So it was a bank holiday here in the UK and as per usual a couple of bananas had been hanging from the fruit bowl for a little too long. “Waste not, want not” is what my mother always taught me, so it was time to dust off our banana bread recipe easy! 

    Let’s get baking, prep time is 10 minutes, so no excuses that you can’t find the time even with 3 children  always makes the task that much easier.

    We know they aren’t the healthiest option, but we think we’ve done good with these moist, fudgy brownies. Spoiler alert, we are now revealing our deeply guarded secret recipe. We use steamed sweet potato to provide a naturally sweet base, coupled with a dash of stevia, honey or maple syrup. We add richness by adding in almond butter which also provides a bit of protein. 
  • Protein Pancakes - Muscle Building Low Sugar

    Pancake day rolls around once a year, but that doesnt mean the only day of the year to have pancakes is on Shrove Tuesday.

  • Overnight Oats - What’s all the Fuss About?

    Oats are packed with healthy nutrients; fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, and omega 3 fatty acids among other things. More importantly, oats contain zero added sugar if you pay attention when shopping and read the labels (steer clear of the instant types). They can also be eaten in different ways, which makes them a bit of a “Power Food”, as we say here at Wave. Whether topped with almond butter, banana and honey or fresh fruit, raisins and cinnamon, the world’s your oyster when it comes to getting creative with breakfast.
