How to make Nigerian Puff Puff [Recipe + Video]

Two weeks ago I posted the photo you can see above on Instagram. I had my older sister around and we spent the afternoon together, cooking, laughing and being silly as usual! We were both craving a little something sweet, so decided to whip up a bowl of Puff Puff. I shared the process on Instagram, and let’s just say the love was real! So many of you asked for my recipe, and I promised you exactly that!

Puff Puff is very easy to make, and is the ultimate definition of delicious! Definitely a winner if you’re hosting guests, but beware this stuff is addictive, and should be consumed with caution!

Here is exactly how I make it.

NIGERIAN PUFF PUFF RECIPE
3 Cups Plain Flour
3/4 Cup of Sugar [alter to your liking] 3.5 tsps dried Instant Yeast
Pinch of Salt
Optional: 1/4 tsp of Nutmeg and 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon
Cooking Oil

Do let me know if you try this recipe, I’d love to know!

These oat & banana breakfast pancakes are sooo darn good + healthy! [Recipe]

Exactly a week ago today I took to my Snapchat and Instagram Stories, and shared my absolute favourite breakfast pancakes recipe. I recorded every step of the process, and promised a few of you that I would post a full recipe on the blog.

Well the day has finally come!

These pancakes are my definition of breakfast heaven. Not only are they are delicious, they are quick to make, and unlike your average pancake, these are super duper nutritious. In just one serving there are approximately 14g protein, 14g fiber, and 75g slow releasing carbs [thank you MyFitnessPal for making nutrition tracking so easy!]

So without further a do, here goes the recipe.

‘I TRAVEL NOT TO ESCAPE LIFE, BUT FOR LIFE NOT TO ESCAPE ME’ – ANON

After a ten day vacation, I’m now settled back at home, and ready to give you the scoop on one of the best holiday destinations I’ve ever been to, otherwise known as…Thailand!

My first trip to Thailand was in 2013, I was a few months into my first major breakup with Hubby, and decided that it was time to fully embrace YOLO!

My midweek self care + self love pamper routine

It’s been a while hasn’t it? If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already know I recently took some time out to recharge. Initially my ‘time out’ involved little to no recharging at all, in fact I was all up in my feelings for the most part, and simply put… an emotional wreck! Fortunately for me, being married and not living by myself, means that if there’s ever a time I’m not feeling my best, my Husband steps in and helps me get back on track.

Now for those wondering what caused my mini breakdown, View Post

The best version of me: A letter to my younger self [MAGNIFY MAGAZINE]

At the start of the year I received a message that took me by surprise. It was from a woman called Ruth, Founder & Editor of MAGNIFY Magazine. Prior to hearing from Ruth a dear friend had gifted me with the first issue of the magazine way back in 2014, and I absolutely loved it.

I had never come across a publication that addressed so perfectly, three extremely important themes in my life… Faith, Fashion and Feminism. So when Ruth reached out and asked me to feature on the MAGNIFY blog, I couldn’t have said yes any faster!

Unlike any other feature I’ve ever done, I was asked to write a letter to my younger, eighteen year old self. I was given a few core topics to discuss, and thought good and hard about what I would say. It was a therapeutic task to say the least, and I was honoured to be given the opportunity to share this with the world.

Here is what I had to say…  View Post
