Nutty Granola

Nutty Granola

Dont you just love granola? I havent made or had granola for breakfast for a long long time and that had to change. So I made a batch last weekend and guess what its nearly all gone.

Now Im not the only one eating it in my house. Theres also Alex the Gayola lover. He absolutely loves it. It takes him a while to chew each bite because of all the nuts but he loves it anyway.

BTW do you like nutty or fruity granola. i am more of a nut person but like the addition of fruit too. I might make a fruit version of this soon.

Like I said this is quite nutty so if you want to change it up a bit just take out some nuts and replace with oats.

Enjoy.

Fluffy Vegan pancakes

Fluffy Vegan pancakes

Who doesnt like pancakes right? I certainly do. And I was on the search for a delicious vegan pancake forever until I came across the fluffy recipe by thevegan8.com

I did try it out and thought it was a bit too starchy for me. So i adapted it a small bit and used Oatmilk instead of coconutmilk (just because I am not a big fan of coconut flavour in anything except on its own)

Anyway these turned out so so fluffy and delicious.

Please have a go and try them you will not regret it.

Sugarfree Pecan Hazelnut Biscuits

Sugarfree Pecan Hazelnut Biscuits

Ok so Im on a sugardetox. Did you ever try that? Its not that tough at all. Maybe because I dont eat much refined sugar anyway but I was told Ill have a crash about 10 days into it…and I havent yet. Ive been doing it for about 12 days now so we will see right?

Anyway the toughest thing about it is that you cant have fruit and you cant have dried fruit. But because most my desserts have dates in them I thought it wasnt great, so I had to come up with a biscuit that has no dates in it and here it is.

It is absolutely delicious and totally sugarfree (except the naturally occuring sugars in nuts) and just the right thing for a midday snack.

I hope you like them and if you do make them please tag me on Instagram Id love to see your creations.

  1. Place the first seven ingrediets in a food processor and blend until combined and sticky. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. While the cookie dough is firming up, blend the remaining ingredients in a food processor until very creamy. Also refrigerate. It has to be frm enough to pipe but not too firm.
  3. Now roll the dough between two sheets of cling film, it will be hard to roll out and will crumble. Get a cookie cutter and cut an even amount of biscuits.
  4. Remove the beetroot filling from the fridge and pipe onto half of the biscuits leaving a bit of an edge. Place the other half of the biscuits on top and press gently down.
  5. Warning you will have some filling left but hey you can always spread it on toast and have pink toast right. These will ot keep for long, maybe 4-5 days as the filling will go sour. So enjoy within that time.

Chocolate Coffee Caramel Slice

Chocolate Coffee Caramel Slice

This one’s for the lovers…the coffee lovers I mean! I am an absolute coffee lover and sometimes I drink too much, I think. But what I really really love is the combination of coffee and chocolate. Combined with a delicious vegan caramel sauce I think its just unbeatable. So if yoou love your coffee as much as I do this one is for you. It is a beautiful not too sweet nearly refined sugar free and alomst healthy cheesecake, that you could almost have for breakfast. Its got nuts and seeds in it its got coffee in it and of course chcocolate. I might just do that and have it before work or at my 11 o’clock break tomorrow. 

Slthough one slice is sitting right in front of me defrosting so maybe I wont wait and have it after dinner.

If you guys try it, please let me know and if you happent to take a photo please tag me on Instagram. Id looove to see you creations and I would be so honoured

By the way for the coffee I used Percol Coffee beans. They are my new favourite coffee, its fair trade and organic and their capsules are compostable which is the main reason I decided to try their products. The caramel sauce is Natures Charm caramel sauce, but they have a huge variety of other vegan prducts including a salted caramel sauce and also a butterscotch sauce. All are absolutely delicious.

So heres the recipe.

Vegan Blackberry Cheezecake

Vegan Blackberry Cheezecake

So were back in autumn again. Didnt that come around very quickly? It sure did. Summer just flwe by and I am not ready for autumn and winter yet. 

The only thing that cheers me up a bit are the new foods that are now coming into season.

Like blackberries. My little monkeys and their granny went out the other day and picked a huge amount of blackberries. granny wanted the kids to do what she used to do as a child. So off they went. So now there are heaps of blackberries in my freezer and I need to come up with things to use them in.

But isnt that the best thing about a raw vegan cheezecake? You can add any fruit and turns out delicious. The only thing I found is that the watercontent is abit tricky to work with and yoou need to add more coconut oil for the cake to set and not run away when not frozen.

But I think I got it right this time. Not like with my strawberry cheezecake that I made a while ago that just run away after I defrosted it. It was more a yoghurt texture than a cheesecake.

Anyway anyway. The recipe for this delicious cake is below and as always tag me on Instagram in your recreations and let me know what you think of the recipe.

Enjoy
