Granola is one of my breakfast staples, especially when I’m craving something crisp and sweet. Now since we’re sticking with the Halloween theme we’ll be making black granola flavoured with cacao and vanilla. All we need to turn this from brown to black is…
Going raw vegan for a month comes with a lot of perks and raw desserts are high on that list. I mean who doesn’t love to indulge with delicious food without feeling guilty afterwards!? They are filled with nothing but whole foods and delicious ingredients.
These raw treats are delicious, easy to make and pack zero guilt. Whenever you make a batch you can simply keep them in the fridge for at least a week and munch on them throughout the week. They are perfect for those afternoon dips or as a snack on the go!
You can also hide little nuts or berries in the middle of the balls, like pictured above (but this is completely optional). This time I went for hazelnut, but feel free to use any other filling, in the past i’ve used dried inca berries which worked out perfectly. Fun Fact: Im allergic to hazelnuts, I like living on the edge!
When you rolled the balls you can also roll them through different toppings such as, desiccated coconut, cacao powder, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or whatever topping you desire. For these balls i went with desiccated coconut dusted with some spirulina and beet powder.
Now its your turn to make these delicious, easy and nutritious treats! If you try them and have an instagram account I would love to see your creations, so feel free to tag me in your post.
Its October, which means its the start of the holiday season! The end of the month halloween is celebrated, so i decided to make some halloween themed recipes for your halloween party. The first dish i wanted to turn spooky was pumpkin pie and after tons of tweaking i’m finally able to share this recipe with you! This pie is gluten free, refined sugar free and cruelty free, a great dish to serve at your party (or eat by your own, like i did)
What makes this pumpkin pie spooky? well it looks green… yeah thats all. Well i think that a green pie is very scary! Of course i used this recipe as another excuse to use spirulina. Im obsessed with the colour green, also spirulina has tons of nutrients, so its a healthy obsession! And i know what you’re thinking the pie does look a bit brown on the pictures, but in real life is has a very dark green colour. Again this recipe is adjustable so feel free to tweak it to your own liking.
In all honesty, i’ve never been a big fan of pumpkin, not even pumpkin pie. I chose to go for a pumpkin pie because i wanted to give pumpkins another chance. This recipe was a lot of trial and error and i was scared i’d never like pumpkin pie, until i woke up this morning and tasted the deliciousness of this final pie, it is a winner! Its creamy, yet stiff and the crust is moist on the bottom and crunchy on the side, in my opinion, its perfect!
This was pie number three look how scary it is with the bat on top… The past week i’ve eaten so much pumpkin pie i thought i’d never be able to eat it again, until i made the final pie, i’m obsessed! And just because i made this halloween themed you should feel free to make this for your thanksgiving dinner, or just because you feel like it. And don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds! You can roast them to make a yummy and healthy snack.
Ive been working on another fun and spooky recipe which i can’t wait to perfect and share with all of you. Here is a little sneak peak of my next recipe.
Who is ready for some bloody dumplings!?
