So many people I know start the week with the best of intentions; tupperwares brimming with kale and nutribullets clutched to replace that hastily grabbed croissant. Then half way through the week, whether it’s a couple of meals out with friends, the office biscuit tin lurking temptingly or hectic schedules they find themselves stressed and not eating or feeling their best.
These blondies are the perfect indulgent wintery treat and are loved by all my family and friends. I find that buckwheat flour goes brilliantly with the creamy peanut butter, and the spoon granola is a must as it adds that extra crunch and gives a delicious texture! I promise these will not disappoint..
The best thing about this recipe is that it takes about five minutes, and just another 10 minutes to cool. This is my favourite combination, however you can adapt the toppings so easily depending on what you have in your store cupboard. The reds and greens from the pistachios and cranberries make this simple recipe one of my Christmas classics.
The Spoon brand started out at a small food fair in SW London. We had no background in food or business and no idea of the hurdles that were lying ahead of us. But with our notices handed in at work, we naively set out on our mission regardless!

Porridge in the summer months. A contentious subject, but something we'd like to get you excited about when going to bed. This recipe takes porridge to a whole new level. It feels like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. Not complaining about this.
You’re thinking about quitting your job and your comfortable salary to start something that you genuinely care about. You keep hearing the phrases: ‘find your passion” or “do what you love - the number one rule in business”. But what if you don’t have a passion? What if you’re still searching for that big idea?
This smoothie bowl is perfect for those summer days when you fancy something really comforting, yet fresh at the same time. It combines the traditional spiced fruit flavours of an apple pie with the texture and refreshing nature of a smoothie bowl.
Spoon is now something that Annie and I spend most of our time planning for, working on and strategising about. It is a legitimate business with lots of customers and suppliers as well as partners and investors. It was not always that way though.
Whoever invented yoghurt bark, should get a pat on the back. It’s so simple to make, yet looks like a masterpiece. We turned into excitable 9 year olds when we made our own version to share with you guys.
