3 Ingredient Tahini Cookies (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

If you’re more a lover of the bittersweet stuff, then these cookies are a match made in heaven for you. Sesame seeds exude a rather sweet fragrance which is uniquely coupled with a slightly bitter undertone following its characteristically nutty flavour. Not sure I’ve really bigged these seeds up in that description, but they really… Continue reading 3 Ingredient Tahini Cookies (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Molten Lava Brownies (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

I know what you’re thinking…brownies are already gooey enough, why do they need a molten lava centre? Well when you couple a regular brownie with ice cream, can you truly say that you have the full advantage of feasting your eyes on an oozing river of liquid chocolate dance with the waves of that viscous… Continue reading Molten Lava Brownies (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake (vegan)

There really is something quite extraordinary about cherries paired with chocolate and since it’s not often I get to eat cherries, I thought I’d eat them how I see fit, which is obviously with some chocolate! I’m not really an oreo fan, but as a biscuit base, especially when you’re feeling lazy, it works pretty… Continue reading No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake (vegan)

2-Ingredient Chia Pudding (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

I always see these extravagantly prepped chia puddings, but rest assured, for a chia pudding to taste good, it does not need to be super pimped. Playing it simple still works and darn well too in my opinion. Of course, add what you wish as a topping if you want something a bit extra, but… Continue reading 2-Ingredient Chia Pudding (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

Salted Caramel Butter Bean Blondies (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

When it comes to beans and pulses, chickpeas seem to get the most attention. The other beans are just left behind, pondering in limbo, not being given the credit that they quite frankly deserve. For example the butter bean: creamy, sweet, smooth no unpleasant bitterness or earthy flavours, quite simply, a blank canvas to turn… Continue reading Salted Caramel Butter Bean Blondies (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

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)

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)

No-Bake Protein Mango Cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free | no refined sugar)

I know pretty much the entire population is in the mood for cheesecake at least ninety percent of the time. Me included. However, why I don’t eat cheesecake ninety percent of the time is the cream and sugar that make it such a decadent and unhealthy option. Today I realised it simply doesn’t have to… Continue reading No-Bake Protein Mango Cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free | no refined sugar)

Simple Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (vegan)

My sister isn’t really known for her cooking, but she promised me a fantastic vegan chocolate cake when I was over in Liverpool and boy was I surprised. It was flipping awesome! No egg or dairy replacements nor any chocolate, it seemed miraculous. Her secret(s)…a shot of coffee and a soya-based buttermilk. The coffee shockingly… Continue reading Simple Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (vegan)
