Chocolate and Walnut Banana Bread (vegan | high protein)

Believe it or not, but I have actually met people in this life time who do not like anything whatsoever to do with bananas. Their texture, their shape, their smell, their entire existence basically. It’s a little uncalled for, but who knows what banana-associated childhood trauma they encountered. Maybe they were fed too much banana… Continue reading Chocolate and Walnut Banana Bread (vegan | high protein)

2-ingredient peanut butter (vegan | gluten-free)

Today I overheard the word 'penis' bellowing prominently from the mouth of the dean of my university as I exited the classroom shortly after teaching my first lecture of the morning. At first I was like, wtf, with a mild fear of what I might stumble across when I walked into his office- luckily he… Continue reading 2-ingredient peanut butter (vegan | gluten-free)

Baked Lemon Cheesecake Bars (vegan |gluten-free)

I honestly can’t take this sudden abundance of raw imitation cheesecakes with their soft nut bases and their faux-cream fillings pumped with expensive fruit powders (another useless non-entity of an ingredient) just to hype up their appearance. They don’t really taste like real cheesecake and you normally have to spend at least a day’s salary… Continue reading Baked Lemon Cheesecake Bars (vegan |gluten-free)

Emergency biscuit base (vegan | gluten-free)

Every morning without fail, my boyfriend whips himself up a 1000kcal shake- yes, I’m jealous, envious of the fact that if I had that every week, Let alone everyday, I wouldn’t fit through the front door. Anyway, despite my green-eyed monster issue, he’s consistently efficient, ensuring that the blender is spick and span, ready for… Continue reading Emergency biscuit base (vegan | gluten-free)

No-bake high protein flapjacks (vegan + gluten-free)

Not to be confused with the boy called Flapjack who was raised by whales and went to an island made entirely of candy. That actually sounds way more fun than this version of flapjack! I was engaged in a food-oriented conversation with an American friend whilst in South Carolina and flapjacks cropped up during our… Continue reading No-bake high protein flapjacks (vegan + gluten-free)

Buckwheat galettes with cheesy mushrooms (vegan + gluten-free)

Of course it had to be the French that gave the humble pancake a sexy name, but I guess that’s just the French language in general. A galette basically refers to a buckwheat pancake that is often accompanied by a savoury filling/topping. It’s ridiculously easy to make so I thought I’d give it a shot.… Continue reading Buckwheat galettes with cheesy mushrooms (vegan + gluten-free)

Chocolate hazelnut tartlet with preserved fruits, rose chantilly, pistachio praline and basil flowers

If I’m being honest, today I’m hungover as fuck and not a single sentence that’s going through my head right now is worth sticking in here. However, I can give you a vague update of my night of drunken shenanigans (which isn’t so entertaining either!), but it does actually involve the tart so I guess… Continue reading Chocolate hazelnut tartlet with preserved fruits, rose chantilly, pistachio praline and basil flowers
