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?

Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cake (vegan | gluten-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)

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)

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!

Caramelised Apple, Walnut and Lentil Pate (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free)

It’s not the most sophisticated of foods, but I’m sure many people would agree that the power of toast is one that cannot be compared to many other foods. Not only does it taste impeccable (well maybe a little OTT), but it really is so versatile. A blank canvas that can be utilised for powerful… Continue reading Caramelised Apple, Walnut and Lentil Pate (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free)

Cranberry and Cashew Cream Cheese (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | no-refined sugar)

Have you ever seen Wallace and Gromit? If so then you’ve definitely heard of Wensleydale cheese! A fresh, fruity, milky cheese usually combined with cranberries. I really think this cashew cream cheese resembles the mild flavours and fruity undertones of the original stuff, but maybe the addition of cranberries just gives it that illusion- either… Continue reading Cranberry and Cashew Cream Cheese (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | no-refined sugar)

Chocolate Hazelnut Oat Cookies (vegan | gluten-free)

Is it wrong if I’m openly admitting that before the cookies were baked they actually tasted much better?! In my opinion, the raw version was a notch above the cooked biscuit. Should I not be so blunt? I think I caught this attitude from my German boyfriend! In England, we’re often accused of beating around… Continue reading Chocolate Hazelnut Oat Cookies (vegan | gluten-free)
