I love the Autumn. The long nights that have us hunkering down with a mug of cocoa by the wood burning stove. The seasons shift in the colour of the trees and cold crisp days. Then along comes pumpkin season and my joy goes to another level.

I’m happy to carve a pumpkin for Halloween but I’d much rather cook with them! Expect a plethora of pumpkin recipes this year as the UK is experiencing a pumpkin glut! You can substitute them for butternut squash if you don’t have pumpkin but right now is perfcet for a bit of pumpkin fun.

I love these delicious blueberry lemon muffins. Bursting with the last of the fresh blueberries or utilising frozen ones, as I have done here, they’re a classic on my list of quick snacks to make in a  hurry. Here I’ve used the amazing aquafaba, or chickpea water, to make them too. I find it’s best to use the water from organic chickpeas with no added salt where possible. These are not overly sweet so suit my taste as I’ve been reducing my sugar intake over the least 5 yeas and now find things I used to love are tooth achingly sweet! 

 Ingredients

What to do when you have a supply of amazing nut butters? Well for me there’s nothing for it but to get into the kitchen and get baking. Here’s the first of what will be a few recipes using the deliciousness that is Pip and Nut’s nut butters. 

These are delicious little snacks. Packed with healthy ingredients and nutrient dense they are both filling and delicious. You want to bake them until they’re crunchy on the outside but still soft on the inside. Don’t leave the kitchen in the last few minutes or they will be too crisp.
