    It is claimed that walnuts are the 'healthiest nut', but we think they're pretty tasty, too. We have loads of ways with walnuts, from walnut cakes and nutty biscuits, to walnut-studded salads and walnut pesto.

    This old-fashioned favourite is proof that you don’t need to invent new recipes in order to eat healthily. Despite being very low in fat it has a lovely light, moist texture, thanks to the dried dates, and makes a pleasant alternative to a conventional fruited cake. It’s delightfully easy to make, and keeps well too.

    Some carrot cakes are oily and dense, but not this carrot cake! It doesn't call for oil, but butter instead. Still moist and fabulous. The cream cheese buttercream icing is superb and a must when making this gorgeous cake!

    This wonderful classic coffee and walnut cake is a delightful alternative to the traditional Victoria sponge or lemon cake. This is a tried and tested recipe and has been enjoyed by our family over many years and is our go-to cake when we are having friends over. This coffee cake is wonderfully versatile and you can just about get away with eating it for breakfast!

    These brownie bites are so good, you won't believe that they're vegan and gluten-free! They're chocolatey, fudgy and you just can't stop at eating one. You don't have to worry though, they're packed full of the good stuff - walnuts (omega-3 fatty acids), dates (natural sugars and fibre) and dark chocolate (flavonoids). They also require no baking!!!

    Flapjacks are a favourite sweet treat for lunchboxes as well as for coffee or teatime. The modern streamlined version here uses less butter than usual, and adds dates for natural sweetness as well as walnuts and sunflower seeds for extra texture. The result is both nutritious and delicious.
