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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

Vegan Chocolate Mousse 

Mr. E has an avocado tree, which is a wonderful thing. Until you have too many ripe avocados all at once and no idea what to do with them. This is when I decided to experiment with avocado chocolate mousse, something I’ve always been a little skeptical about making. The key with this is the […]
