For the most part, we try to eat healthily and be conscious of what we consume, but there are some dates in the calendar where this goes completely out of the window. Traditionally, Christmas and Easter are the times to indulge, but this year, why not treat your mum to some sinfully sweet treats this Mother’s Day? Or, just treat yourself, we won’t judge.
We have collected together our five favourite indulgent recipes from food blogs we can’t stop reading, they are all easy to make, delicious to eat and in absolutely no way healthy.
Grapefruit Poppy Seed Muffins
Deceptively healthy sounding, these tasty muffins are perfect for an indulgent breakfast. Slather them in icing and citrus zest, then enjoy with a giant cup of coffee. They are ideal for baking the night before then enjoying them at home or taking them to enjoy with your family on Mother’s Day.

Peanut Butter Millionaire Shortbread Bars
Peanut butter and chocolate are made for each other, as soon as you introduce the two, something magic happens. Lindsay and Taylor of Love and Olive Oil have combined the two with caramel and shortbread to make an even more delicious combo. We are not worthy.

Sea Salt and Caramel Ice Cream
Moving on seamlessly from the peanut butter millionaire shortbread, we need to introduce you to the Sea Salt caramel coconut ice cream. The good thing about this recipe is that it is almost healthy, it’s vegan and naturally sweetened so it’s ideal for those of us who are watching what we eat. That said, we also recommend, trying this recipe out with the nutty brownies above!
