I can't believe Christmas is only a couple days away. This week has been quite hard because I have been missing my family back in SA so much. I think this time of year is super special and also hard in a lot of ways. For us, it's the fact that life goes on over here and you kind live in these seasons apart from what your family is experiencing back home. They have vacation, sunshine, and togetherness and over here we're kind of slummin it on our own, whilst still working. Therefore I have been baking more than usual, so we can get more of the festive vibes going.

Festive vegan cookie box is the perfect gift or cookie essentials for this festive season ahead. I know I might be a bit late on this post, but better late than never! Christmas is one week away and leaves you lots of time to get baking. This box is filled with chai spiced Christmas cookies, Romany creams, coffee cookies, and decadent vegan caramels. YUP, it's utterly amazing!

Ginger chocolate oat cookies, I have been trying to find a name for the subtle spiced cookies. They are a mix between chocolate chip and festive ginger cookies, a phoenix you might call them. They are delightfully light, chewy and sweet. Christmas cookies are stressing me out for real, making beautiful cookies takes a lot of patience and loads of percision that is for sure! I have made two batches and the cookies came out all right, but the frosting is nothing to write home about! That's where the true artist comes out...

Chocolate speculoos banana bread might be my new addiction, like all my other banana obsessions, this one is right at the top of the list. All things baking are running through my head, and with only so much space to eat everything, banana bread is one of my preferred baked goodies. What makes this loaf so special is the fact that it's loaded with festive vibes all the way. With Christmas only a couple weeks away, I can't help but feel weird about the whole thing. Maybe when kids are involved, you realize finally that time does indeed fly and soon our little munchkin will be two years old. It feels just like yesterday that he was born.

Banana peanut butter cinnamon buns are one of my favorite combo's combined. Cinnamon rolls are my absolute favorite thing to eat, besides peanut butter...So what is better indeed than to eat them together? Especially when you get to eat them with a creamy yet salted caramel sauce.

Maltabella banana muffins are absolutely amazing. I am going to rave about these muffins cos gosh they are close to the best muffins I have made so far. I wanted to get this recipe down pretty quick before I forgot how I made them. Maltabella is one of my favorite porridge from back home. We always pack our suitcases loaded with SA products and I am always sure to add this one stuffed in between the layers of clothing or extra food goodies I am bringing with.

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

Fig rye banana bread is a banana bread lover's dream come true. This bread is dense yet light, moist and so delish with the dried figs hidden in there. I absolutely love this bread and will def make it again, again and again. The spelt and rye flours complement the luscious figs so well. I am still dreaming about this loaf.

No knead Zucchini bread is such an amazing bread recipe to try when you are pressed for time or when you just want to make some freshly baked bread in a jiffy. I made this for us one evening when we were planning to have a BBQ. It took me around a half an hour to prepare everything and by the time the BBQ was ready, the bread was ready to be eaten.

Almond butter cookies are the ultimate toddler snack. I made a quick batch of healthy cookies, just because I was so over buying bio cookies and not knowing whether they are actually any good. I like to know the kinds of foods my son is eating most of the time, even though he is always putting some kind of something in his mouth these days. I swear he has eaten so many leaves, play dough and old food from the ground. At least I know these cookies are nothing but good stuff!
