Homemade Vegan Chocolate

20 Dec 2019 11:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
I'm a sucker for chocolate - the darker the better as far as I'm concerned.  At this time of year I get festive in my kitchen creating new chocolate temptations for gifts and for hiding at the back of the fridge for me to pick at when I feel the need! The beauty of doing this myself is that I know there is no dairy hiding anywhere and to be honest, they are really easy to make.  You can get as creative and adventurous with fillings as you want, or keep it simple.

Vegan Meringues

3 Oct 2019 13:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
Once you start playing with aquafaba as an egg replacement, the natural thing to do is attempt meringues.  I wasn't sure these would work, but decided I had to try it to find out, and you know what?  .....  You'd never know they were any different to the regular version!   I shared this on my old blog a few years ago, but have had requests to share it again, so here it is!  The recipe is originally from a fab group on Facebook, called "Vegan Meringue
 

 

Vegan Muffins

29 Sep 2019 11:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
Some time ago, I discovered the magic of aquafaba.  Aquafaba is the liquid contained in a tin of chickpeas and other tinned pulses.  It is full of nutrients and has the added bonus of being a fabulous egg replacement - just like chia seeds, or flax seeds.  As a general rule you need 3 tbsp of aquafaba to replace 1 egg.  It works really well in muffins!   Vegan Aquafaba Blueberry Muffins These blueberry muffins are perfect for breakfast, or as a snack with a cup
 

 

Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

8 Sep 2019 11:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
These almond coconut chocolate chip cookies were the result of a recipe made up with left over almond pulp (from my home made almond milk).  I was originally hoping for a firmer texture, as they actually turned out quite soft, moist and a tiny bit chewy.   They were full of flavour and tasted absolutely delicious, so I wasn't disappointed at all! These cookes are both gluten free and dairy free and make a nice little healthy treat when in need of a
 

 

Raw Almond Pulp Hummus

25 Aug 2019 14:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
I make my own almond milk and am forever trying to find new ways of using up the almond pulp.  This is just one of them.  When I found this recipe (from My New Roots) my first thought was, "Great, I've got tahini to use up, so I'll make this hummus straight away!"  Unfortunately, I couldn't find the tahini anywhere but I did find a packet of sesame seeds ......   So first, I made my own tahini - who knew it was so easy?!!!  Then ...... I used
 

 

Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Jam

Some years ago now, when I came across this jam recipe from thankfulexpressions.blogspot.com, I just had to try it, especially as I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and I LOVE using chia seeds.  They are so easy to cook with and have so many nutrients, they really should be in everyone's kitchen pantry! Well, this jam is the easiest and quickest jam I've ever made and it is also healthy and delicious.  I loved it so much, that I have been making it with

These coconut seed slices are chock full of healthy seeds and great for nibbling alongside a cup of jasmine tea!  I think they'd keep quite well in an airtight container, but they are always eaten pretty quickly in my house!   Coconut Seed Slices   Ingredients chia egg (made with 1 tbsp chia seeds and 3 tbsp water) 150g coconut butter 3 tbsp golden syrup 1 cup rolled oats 1 cup desiccated coconut 1/2 cup wholemeal plain flour 1/2 tsp
 

 

Chia Seed Pudding

9 Jun 2019 13:00:00 | Author: Caryl | Full article...

 
As most people know, chia seeds are highly nutritious and known as a "superfood".  What is also great about them is the fact that they are so easy to add into our diets.  This chia seed pudding is not only healthy, but simple to make and delicious.  It is also very easy to change up the flavours!   Vanilla Chia Pudding   Ingredients 1 cup plant milk (I like oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk) 1 tsp pure vanilla
