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)

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)

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.

The coffee shockingly… Continue reading Simple Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (vegan)

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)

Peanut Butter and Walnut Millet Blondies (vegan | gluten-free)

Never in my life had I heard of millet until a couple of months ago. The word been thrown around now and again by the gluten haters, not the coeliacs, just people who hate gluten for the sake of hating it. I on the other hand do not hate gluten. But I do think wheat… Continue reading Peanut Butter and Walnut Millet Blondies (vegan | gluten-free)
