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)

Chococcino Protein Balls (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)

Bakewell Tart Protein Bars (vegan | gluten-free | refined sugar-free)

Yet another protein bar in the works here. Hit a bit of a writing block this week so it’ll just be the recipe for now but maybe I’ll come back to fill in the blanks at some point soon. 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)

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)

2-Ingredient DIY Soy Milk (vegan | gluten-free | fat-free)

What I love about making my own milk is that it’s just a cool thing to say to people when they drink it! Well once you’ve clarified that it’s not sourced from your bosom to clear any confusion (if you’re a woman- not that I had to verify that at all). It may be a… Continue reading 2-Ingredient DIY Soy Milk (vegan | gluten-free | fat-free)

Soybean Pancakes (vegan | gluten-free)

As result of becoming vegan, my boyfriend’s vegetarian diet has also slowly become veganised. He’s a bit of a gym buff, so he requires a healthy dose of protein when and where possible. Flour is not often my go-to protein, but it is when it’s soybean flour. I had no idea I could buy this… Continue reading Soybean Pancakes (vegan | gluten-free)

Thai Rice and Beans Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

Thai food seems to be on everyone’s top 5 favourite food lists of all time, and understandably so. Packed full of flavour, spice and usually a lot of coconut, it’s a collaboration of ingredients that can’t be celebrated enough. This bowl is right up your alley if you’re a fan. An infusion of rich coconut… Continue reading Thai Rice and Beans Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

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)
