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)

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.

Millionaires Shortbread (vegan | gluten-free)

Gone are those days where I would be cautious with my millionaires shortbread consumption. In my entire lifetime, these little beauties have only entered my body maybe two or three times. Why not more? I guess the saturated fat content- if you haven’t gathered by now, I’m a bit of a hypochondriac and with heart… Continue reading Millionaires Shortbread (vegan | gluten-free)
