Raw Vegan Macadamia Caramel Cheesecake

I liked this cheesecake so much I decided to make a double batch and make it into a cake and a slice. Well, that’s not entirely true, the two different

Two-Ingredient Vegan Wholemeal Spelt Bread Rolls

I am lucky enough to live within walking distance to a wonderful organic sourdough bakery that provides us with delicious healthy bread, but they only have one type of bun,

Vegan Cherry Tomato Brown Rice and Buckwheat Risotto

I am actually on a mission to add more types of whole grains into my diet more consistently, hence why I also added buckwheat to this recipe. I love buckwheat because its a good source of magnesium. I have currently taken to cooking up a big batch of whole grains and freezing them. I do a big batch of millet, buckwheat, and quinoa as well as brown rice.

No Bake Vegan Chocolate Mousse Tart with Raspberries

Paring it with the magnesium from the raw cacao and almonds as well as the b vitamins found in sunflower seeds means that this dessert is wonderful for building healthy neurotransmitters and boost mood (most chocolate does that). The added bonus of fresh raspberries adds extra antioxidants and vitamin c. I particularly love my fresh Aussie raspberries from Perfection Fresh, that I get from my local Aldi down to the road.

Vegan Avocado Pesto Pasta

Personally I am not a fan of processed white flour in general but since I do not have any gluten or wheat issues, my favourite pasta is actually wholemeal pasta. I also enjoy spelt. Durum wheat semolina flour used in pasta is actually quite different to flour used in bread, it has a much lower gluten concentration so it is less likely to create a digestive upset,

No-Bake Vegan Plum Vanilla Jelly Tart

When I first made this cake a while ago I never intended to blog it because it is the exact same recipe as my vegan baked vanilla cheesecake but with the addition of blueberries and a little lemon zest. I was so thrilled my first attempt at a baked vegan cheesecake had worked so well that I wanted to try different flavour combinations.

Vegan DIY Iron Supplement Gummies

It turns out I have a lot to say about iron and consuming iron for women, probably because it comes from personal experience, but for the purpose of this post I will keep my writing about the recipe itself and not delve too much into iron. I am currently experiencing mildly low iron due to previous pregnancy and extended breastfeeding.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Plum Slice

I have recently learned that plums are a very good source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are a powerful tool to help fight off oxidative stress and free radicals. They help boost the immune system and help to fight off viruses, in fact, antioxidants are so great for the immunity they have even been shown to help fight cancer

Tea Infused Vegan Spelt Muffins with Blackberry Coconut Frosting

Its a very plain recipe so I wanted to attempt to give it more flavour by using herbal tea instead of plant milk and add some frosting. The herbal tea I used was a sleep time blend from Asha Twinnings, which was mostly chamomile, but you can use any tea you like.

Vegan Chocolate Almond Torte with Dark Berries

This cake is one of my most favourite recipes because it's so heavy on the chocolate! I really enjoyed having it in my freezer and munching away at it after the workshop, it was also really handy to have to serve to guests.

Silken Tofu Chocolate Mousse

In terms of hormone health, this is the perfect dessert! It has some of my most favourite hormone friendly ingredients and is loaded with essential nutrients for hormone health. The chocolate provides the magnesium and iron (provided it is good quality dark chocolate) and the tofu provides beneficial phytoestrogens, extra calcium, and more iron.

Vegan Chocolate Almond Butter Hemp Brownies- No Flour

I have tried a few vegan brownies over the years and I am most excited about this recipe. Not only does it contain no flour so it is completely gluten-free, texture-wise it is the most legitimate brownie I have made to date. It tastes just like a less sweet version of a traditional brownie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse and Chia Pudding Parfait – Vegan

I have experimented with chia pudding a fair bit over the years and was never quite happy with all the different ways to make chia pudding. Chia pudding is usually eaten for breakfast but most recipes I have seen called for a plant milk base and quite frankly it is just not filling enough or flavourful enough.

Vegan Blueberry Lemon Custard Tart

I'm not really sure what to say about this tart other than my husband ate 3/4 of the whole thing in one sitting! There was something about this flavour combination that really really worked. I have made a few vegan custard type tarts before but this time I wanted to create a custard recipe that was a little firmer than usual.

Mexican Chilli Beans and Rice with Panasonic 10L Rice Cooker

I have been a little slow to the game and never owned a rice cooker until now, but I am so glad I waited because this rice cooker serves as the perfect machine for easy set and forget one-pot meals.

How To Make Healthier Vegan Ice Cream Cake

I have shared three different ice cream cakes on Instagram before and I never felt the need to blog a recipe for them because they are so easy to make! However every time I share an ice cream cake photo, I inevitably have a few people ask for the recipe, so I thought I would try my first "how-to" type blog post.

No Bake Vegan Tahini Millionaire Bars

The gist of a millionaire bar is a shortbread cookie base, caramel centre, and chocolate coating. Three of my favourite things in one! I also can't pass up an opportunity to use tahini in any recipe that calls for caramel.

Fluffy Vegan Yogurt Pancakes

I have decided that I really wanted to achieve a much fluffier pancake texture than the ones that I am used to, so I decided to try adding some vegan yogurt. I think the yogurt helps the pancakes to rise and bubble.
