It can be hard to find time for home cooking during the busy working week. Full time jobs and family commitments can make it tricky to fit in a food shop and find time every evening to make a new meal. Our latest cookbook – Sunday Cook-in – is here to help with some of our favourite batch cooking recipes.

Set aside an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon, put some music on, and have a nice relaxing cooking session. Then you can stock up your fridge or freezer with these delicious and nutritious recipes that will keep you going throughout the week.

Founder Debs’ greatest granola recipe

Making two large jars and tasting ten times tastier than anything you’ll find in a supermarket, this will keep you going for weeks. Serve with cold milk and a dollop of natural Greek yoghurt, plus a sprinkling of blueberries or raspberries. And take some into work with you and eat a handful to keep you going until home time. This is a great alternative to popping to the vending machine or the shop to buy sweets.
