Fruit and Nut Frozen Yoghurt Ice Lollies
Pip’s top tip:
Try slicing the cooked banana bread and placing between two pieces of grease-proof paper, then toast on both sides in a frying pan over a low-medium heat. It’ll caramelise the banana and melt the chocolate in the bread, and make the house smell pretty amazing. Just writing about it makes us hungry.
Mix things up a little this Easter with these delicious nut butter cups from our cookbook. They taste as good as they look, so you can be sure to win some brownie points when you take them home over the weekend. If you really want to push the boat out, why don’t you play around with some different flavours and toppings. Here are four of our favourite combinations:
These are another favourite from our cookbook and they’re pretty darn tasty if we do say so ourselves. Like a grown-up version of the classic rice crispy cake, they should make both big and small squirrels very happy. As it’s Easter, why not top with a couple of mini eggs for a real bit of added nostalgia.
This muffin recipe is one of our favourites from our new cookbook. Perfect for a quick breakfast if you’re scurrying out the door, or an afternoon pick-me-up. Best enjoyed with a proper cup of tea.
Make a batch on Sunday evening and you’ll be thanking yourself all week. They only take 30 mins so can easily be slotted in to a lazy weekend routine.
A Giant Pip & Nut Cookbook
We had a lot of fun coming up with our most recent window display at Whole Foods Market (High St Kensington). We wanted the window to celebrate our recent cookbook, which to us is really about two key ideas: getting creative in the kitchen and the versatility of nut butter in cooking. We worked with design agency Neue to come up with the concept of the giant cookbook. The ‘flying’ pages highlight some of our favourite recipes, such as the Coco-nutty Banana Pancakes and Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate. We wanted this window to show people that there are so many more ways to use nut butter than just spreading it on toast (although sometimes you really can’t beat a good slice!).
Pick Your Own Protein Balls
Protein balls are super easy to make at home. Have a batch ready for when snack time calls (just don’t eat them all at once!). You can get really creative with your flavour combinations, but here are a few simple steps to follow to help you on your way:
Coco-nutty Banana Pancakes
Flippin’ amazing pancakes. You’ll go absolutely bananas for these guys. Or nuts. Whatever cheesy pun you want to use to celebrate just how tasty these light, fluffy pancakes are.
Marinated Strawberries & Almond Butter Sourdough
This is one of our absolute favourites from our new cookbook and is on the menu at our pop-up Toast Bar in the Selfridges Foodhall. The savoury edge from the almond butter, sweet honey, salty sourdough and tart lemon makes this a real crowd-pleaser. Plus saying that you marinated your strawberries makes it sound rather fancy, so you’ll get lots of praise from friends if you’re generous enough make it for them. It’s a win-win situation.
Pip & Nut Toast Bar in the Selfridges Foodhall
We’re seriously excited to announce that we have opened a pop-up Pip & Nut Toast Bar in the Selfridges Foodhall (in London). We’ll be open from 7.30am – 12.30pm everyday until 12th February, so swing by to say hello and grab breakfast, a mid-morning snack or early lunch.
