Passionfruit & White Chocolate Muffins

I was lucky enough to be sent a box of goodies from one of my favourite vegan chocolate brands, The Chocolate Yogi and they asked me to create a handful of recipes using their delicious chocolate. In the same week I visited my local fruit and vegetable market and picked up a bag of ripe passionfruit […]

Black Bean Cookies

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a massive skeptic when it came to black bean brownies and cookies. But after seeing so much hype and hearing rave reviews, I decided to bite the bullet and attempt them for myself. And while in most cases I hate admitting that I’m wrong, I will […]

Almond & Apricot Muesli Bars

I’m so sick of having to reheat lunches at uni. Waiting in line for the only two microwaves on campus and then finally heating my lunch, only to realise that half of it’s still cold and I’ve wasted 30 minutes of my break. Don’t you love that? These muesli bars have been a lifesaver for […]

Homemade Potato Chips

Yep you read right. Potato chips. Like the Red Rock Deli or Smiths ones you buy in a bag at the supermarket and the service station and on a night out when you’re downing a few too many ciders (don’t tell me you’re not guilty of this). I know you’re shocked that you can make these at home. Trust […]

Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

After a self-induced sugar coma last night (consisting of Oreo ice cream, white chocolate, vegan mnm’s and the famous ‘Vego Bar’), I woke up feeling a little “sugar hungover.” I walked to the kitchen for my morning glass of Metamucil and saw a half opened bag of white chocolate buttons, staring at me. I wanted […]

Vegan Quest Bars

I must admit that I’ve never actually tried a Quest Bar, but if I had, I think these would taste pretty damn similar. I love protein bars as a post-workout snack or as a little protein boost pick-me-up during the day, but I hate the ridiculous amount of ingredients and stacks of processed sugar. What […]

Peppermint Fudge Balls

In an attempt to curb my ravenous sweet tooth, I’ve been experimenting with raw vegan treats again. In my early vegan days, I was baking (or un-baking?) a lot, but living alone with a freezer full of raw vegan caramel slice or bliss balls or peanut butter cups can be dangerous… So let’s see how […]

Fruit Pastries

How often have you gone to slice open a pear, only to find that its just not quite ripe? Or maybe you’ve left it a little too long and now it’s almost baby food consistency? What about those moments when you’re hardcore craving a juicy red apple, and you cut it into slices, pop it […]

Raw Vegan Brownie Bites

If you’ve been following my adventures for a while, you’ll notice that the photos used in this blog post are a little on the old side. That is for two reasons. 1. These photos are nice. Don’t you agree? 2. Every time I make these brownie bites, they’re gone before I can even snap them. […]

Vegan Mushroom & Spinach Triangles

Just like any other student, during my exam period I began to crave every single snack under the sun. Chips, chocolate, sour patch kids, oreos, fries… You name it, I was craving it. And in an effort to curb these cravings of mine, I decided to attempt an old favourite. I wanted something that I […]
