Peppermint Mocha Slice

Peppermint, chocolate, coffee. Is there anything better? I don’t think so. This peppermint mocha slice is like taking a little bite of heaven. This recipe is in collaboration with Crio Brü, a coffee alternative made from 100% roasted cacao beans. Crio Brü coffee substitute contains a natural stimulant called theobromine which is gentle, long-lasting and non-addictive. Although the […]

Vegan Carrot Cake

This is an adaptation of my grandma’s famous carrot cake (which was certainly not vegan). I also created a gorgeous cinnamon buttercream which pairs perfectly with the moist, coconut and carrot flavours of this cake. For the carrot cake:  2 cups (250g) self-raising flour 1 cup desiccated coconut 1 cup good quality soy milk 1 […]

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 […]

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.

Vegan Twix Bars

This is my second recipe for Natures Charm and boy am I excited about it. I’ve always loved Twix bars (who am I kidding, I love all kinds of chocolate bars) but have never really been game enough to make my own. I’m wary of ‘raw vegan’ replicas of Twix, Mars and Bounty bars as I’m usually […]

Salted Caramel Fudge

I’ve been vegan for over three years now and can I just say how incredibly hard it is to find vegan fudge anywhere! I’m not talking about your cheap fudge from a packet that’s practically rock solid and grainy with sugar. No, I mean the good stuff. The soft, sticky, rich, melt-in-your-mouth kind of fudge […]

Vegan Ice Cream Cake

This recipe was created by my lovely mother last Christmas when we began experimenting with vegan desserts. Mum had always made these fabulous ice cream cakes with chewy meringue bits, rich chocolate shavings and fresh berries swirled through. But once I became vegan, I was unable to share this deliciousness with my family on Christmas […]
