Banana Custard Bread (vegan | gluten-free)

In my moments of reminiscing about childhood, one dessert in particular that crops up is banana custard. My dad would always devour custard remains from the previous day straight from the fridge with a sliced banana. He’d usually share it with me, but for quite some time, I wasn’t too fond of the stodgy texture… Continue reading Banana Custard Bread (vegan | gluten-free)

Coronation Chickpea Sandwich (vegan | gluten-free)

Now this is one dish I truly miss since cutting out meat, coronation chicken. However, what I did realise was that it was the delectable mayonnaise infused with sweet Indian spices and bits of juicy mango and sultanas working in tandem with one another that were responsible for bringing this filling to life and making… Continue reading Coronation Chickpea Sandwich (vegan | gluten-free)

Toffee Crisp Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Rice crispies covered in sweet caramel and milk chocolate, the infamous Toffee Crisp. Pretty much every kid’s go-to chocolate bar in the 90s (unless I’m just basing that on me and that generalisation is just a complete lie, though I’m speculating here and I’m pretty sure it’s almost true). Just the memory of that fun-time… Continue reading Toffee Crisp Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

My boyfriend has a coffee roastery, so it’s only natural that coffee recipes follow suit! As the summer approaches, his café put up a new menu including iced chococcino and I’m hooked. It made no sense to not capture this delightful combination of flavours in my food so I squished them all into one ball-… Continue reading Chococcino Protein Balls (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

In the mean time, enjoy these bars.   Serving size: Makes 8-10 bars Ingredients: 2 large… Continue reading Bakewell Tart Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Fruit and Nut Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Anyone ever had one of those ‘Eat Natural’ bars before and expected it to be super crunchy and a bit more delicious than it actually is?! Same here.  Well ironically enough, I tried to mimic them, BUT with the added crunch factor and it worked- bloody delicious they are! The quinoa pops really throw in… Continue reading Fruit and Nut Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

On a recent trip to Thailand, I fell in love with the food, particularly the dessert. On almost every street corner stood a little shack with wheels selling hand-made coconut rice pudding with freshly sliced mangoes, crispy fried rice and maybe a cheeky dollop of coconut ice cream. I couldn’t get enough of this and… Continue reading Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)
