Upside down ombre orange cake with vanilla

For me, one of the hardest things about blogging is writing my posts. I’ve never really been comfortable with expressing myself in that way, but I imagined over time it would get easier. Unfortunately, it hasn’t. It slows me down, causes me to procrastinate (one of my biggest flaws) & prevents me from publishing posts….

Vegan snickers bars + some exciting news

If you only ever have one raw dessert in your repertoire please please make it these raw vegan snickers bars! Honestly, everyone that has tried them has loved them & I’m positive you will too. Unlike some vegan desserts, like my raw blueberry & lemon slice or my tropical slice, they don’t require seasonal fruit so you can enjoy these all year around. Also, you don’t have…

Vegan cinnamon buns are the perfect thing to make on a slow rainy day when you’re just pottering around the house.

The green smoothie bowl – here to stay

Yes, for 2017 my beloved green smoothie bowl is here to stay. It may seem crazy to post something that isn’t trending right now. I mean smoothie bowls have definitely had their time in the spotlight (along with breakfast jars), but my body is craving all the green stuff after Christmas holiday festivities. Last year I…

vegan lemon tarts – easy, no bake & ultra tangy!

In my early 20’s I was obsessed with a little French Patisserie near my work. I would find any excuse to pass by & pick up one of their lemon tarts. They were divine, but far from healthy. Fast forward to today & I still love that lemony tang in a dessert, but I want…

Chocolate Mint Slice – vegan, gluten & dairy free

This chocolate mint slice is one of my favourite things to make & eat. I have always loved the combination of chocolate & mint. As a little kid, my parents weren’t into keeping lollies & chocolates in the house, but they always had a box of Red Tulip After Dinner Mints in the fridge. You…

“Top o’ the mornin” green tea gluten free waffles

I love matcha. I want to add it to everything! It works really well in smoothies and overnight bircher. I’ve also experimented with it in raw desserts. I was going to add it to pancakes one morning, but lately, waffles win the vote in our house. So green tea waffles were born, and because it’s…

Vegan Raspberry Brownies
