Hi Nic. I really enjoyed making Skinny PB cookies at the weekend for my Canicross pals. Will be making a few more batches soon for our next social meet. I have already been sent orders for more. They went down a treat, delish.
The eggy bread ‘French Toast’ reminds me of my brownie pack holidays. These seem a little more grown up. Hmmm not sure I can wait until end of the competition to start taste reminiscing.

Hi Nic, I have just come across your website and am so pleased . Lots of advice and recipes for healthy living. I have just spent a happy couple of hours trawling your site and reading the posts. I had not heard of PPB untill I read of it in your blog. All the recipes sound lovely but if I have to chose one then it would be the coconut macaroons,
Aw thank you so much Janet! And good luck 🙂 xx
