Vegan Raspberry Pudding (Healthier Dessert)

A beautifully vibrant dessert that's really easy to make and using healthier ingredients. This vegan raspberry pudding is the perfect dessert when you're craving something light, creamy and fruity. Spring is almost here and I couldn't be more excited! I've always been an autumn/winter person, but this winter was different for me. The shorter, colder days really affected me this time around, not sure why. As a result I am glad to see the back of it for now. My body and mind is yearning for longer, brighter and warmer days.  I'm also excited to start making more spring/summer recipes. Lighter chilled treats with brighter colours and fruity notes. This vegan raspberry pudding would be perfect for this Mother's Day. [...]

Vegan High Protein Tofu Pancakes

A yummy pancake stack made with healthier ingredients - these vegan high protein tofu pancakes are a great way to start your day with a nutritious meal that tastes like a dessert! Pancakes aren't known for their health benefits, but there's not denying they taste darn good! They're usually high in sugar, simple carbs and low in protein and fibre.  What if I told you I created a pancake stack that tastes delicious, but is also good for you? A stack that's high in protein and also a great source of fibre. A much more well-rounded, balanced and nutritious meal that won't spike your blood sugar levels.  Each serving offers 26g of protein and 7g of fibre. Not bad for [...]

These healthier vegan heart sandwich cookies would make a great treat for Valentine's Day.

Nut butter sandwiched between two crunchy oat cookies. This recipe is easily adaptable to your likes and dietary needs. You can use any filling you like. I've made them before with jam and chocolate hazelnut spread, but this time I opted for a chocolate peanut butter. Basically anything you can spread will work.

Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies

Rich, dense and chewy chocolate cookies made using healthier ingredients - these Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies are completely plant-based and gluten-free. If you love chocolate and tahini, then these chocolate fudge tahini cookies are for you. In fact if you love cookies, full stop, you need to try these! I made these cookies years ago and posted them on my blog (click here for the original recipe), but I've had a lot of requests for an egg-free version and I've finally managed to get the chance to re-test the recipe and found the perfect ratio of ingredients for them to work without the eggs. They're super dense and so chocolatey and lush :D and best of all they only call for 7 ingredients! [...]

Healthier Vegan Baklava Cups

Mini cups filled with crunchy nuts - these healthier vegan baklava cups are the perfect light sweet treat! Baklava is probably the one dessert you’ll find served at every celebration in the Middle East or any Arab speaking country. It’s such a decadent dessert - one that is served to show hospitality & generosity. Diamond shaped delights made up of layered crispy phyllo pastry, crunchy nuts flavoured with cinnamon & cardamom all drenched in a rose water + orange blossom infused syrup. Baklava is also the go-to dessert during the holy month of Ramadan as well as during Eid celebrations. They’re usually so hearty/sweet that I can only manage a couple of bites or a really small piece, otherwise it sits heavy [...]

Vegan Coconut Banana Bread

A deliciously rich slice of banana bread topped with a blue frosting - this vegan coconut banana bread is exactly what you need to beat the January blues!  The festive season is over and the twinkly Christmas lights have been stored away. It can feel like all you're left with are the cold, dark and rainy days.  I'm usually a winter person. I grew up in a very hot climate, so even though extreme heat and blasting sunshine seems like heaven to some, for me, it was the colder, slightly less bright days that I looked forward to. I love the cosiness that's associated with the colder months. Curling up on the sofa with a hot drink is the definition [...]

Protein Fruit & Seed Bars

A hearty snack bar - these protein fruit & seed bars also make a great on-the-go breakfast on busy mornings. Packed with seeds & dried fruit all topped off with a decadent layer of smooth dark chocolate!  I use nuts and nut butters in a lot of my desserts, baking and snack recipes. Every time I post a recipe I can guarantee I'll get at least one person asking for a nut-free alternative. Nuts can easily be replaced with seeds and nut butters with tahini or sunflower seed butter.  I thought it was about time I created a recipe that's completely nut-free, but still packed with healthy fats & fibre. I also added in some protein powder to make it [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan)

*This post is sponsored by Califia Farms* A decadent chocolate peanut butter banana bread - dense, rich and topped with a lush frosting. Dessert heaven right here! Who doesn't love banana bread? I have never come across someone who doesn't like to indulge in a moist, dense slice of banana bread. However, this is no ordinary banana bread. For one, it's a chocolate banana bread, AND it's topped with a decadent peanut butter frosting. It's impossible to say no to a slice with your afternoon cuppa. Banana bread had a serious moment during lockdown. Everyone seemed to be making it apart from me, which is strange seeing as banana bread is my favourite kind of cake. On reflection, I know [...]

Gingerbread Chocolate Mousse Pots

Rich and decadent gingerbread chocolate mousse pots that only call for 7 ingredients and they also happen to be vegan! These gingerbread chocolate mousse pots are as simple as a dessert can get. There is no baking required and all you have to do is blend biscuits with coconut oil or vegan butter to make the base, and pour a simple melted chocolate and coconut milk mixture on top and leave in the fridge to set! I added some ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg to make them more festive and Christmassy :) I think for many, Christmas is a time to put your feet up, relax and enjoy some free time with friends and family. Of course it's also about enjoying delicious [...]

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Orange Tart

A deliciously decadent tart that everyone can enjoy! This gluten-free vegan chocolate orange tart is another great dessert to serve this festive season.  *This post is sponsored by FREEE* With only three more sleeps left before Christmas, I wanted to make a dessert that’s really easy to put together, in case you’re looking for a last-minute treat.

The base is made up of a simple mixture of FREEE Gluten Free Plain White Flour, dairy-free butter and water with a little bit of sugar to sweeten. The smooth velvety filling is made [...]
