Bakewell Tart Waffles
The combination of cherry and almond in these waffles was inspired by the classic English pud, the Bakewell Tart. A Sunday lunch classic that we’ve squashed between two waffle irons. Recipe from our cookbook.
Make the most of blackberry season and, instead of heading to the supermarket, forage for ripe, juicy blackberries in your local hedgerow. Just be sure to actually collect some for your breakfast rather than gobbling them all up there and then.
Celebrate summer with this nutty recipe. It doesn’t actually contain any cream, so not only is this ice cream super tasty but it also counts towards your five-a-day. Win-win.
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:
