Vegan Raspberry Dark Chocolate Blondies (GF)

Vegan Raspberry Dark Chocolate Blondies

Inspired by my Cherry Bakewell Cake, these Vegan Raspberry Dark Chocolate Blondies are delicious, easy to make and much healthier than normal butter- and sugar-filled blondies.  I made these blondies with what is now becoming my go-to vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar free cake batter. It’s not dry or crumbly, but tender and perfectly sweet thanks to the additionRead more

Amaretto Prune Chocolate Pancakes

Amaretto Prune Chocolate Crepes

Celebrate Pancake Day the grown-up way with these Amaretto Prune Chocolate Pancakes! I love the combination of Amaretto, prunes and dark chocolate, and have previously used this to make these chocolates and this pudding. You can use whatever pancakes you fancy for this, but I went with crepes. I adapted the recipe for my Matcha Crepes, which substitutes wheatRead more

Vegan Red Wine Hot Chocolate (GF)

Vegan Red Wine Hot Chocolate

I’ve been seeing red wine hot chocolate recipes all over the Internet recently, so I decided to make my own Vegan Red Wine Hot Chocolate! It does seem like a slightly strange combination, but after taste testing-various attempts I came to the following conclusion: Make sure you make the hot chocolate with real dark chocolate, notRead more

I created the recipe for this Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate in collaboration with the wonderful company Chocolate and Love. This is actually the fourth (!) hot chocolate recipe I’ve posted on my blog so far. I’ve made Spiced Hot Chocolate, Praline Hot Chocolate and Orange Hot Chocolate. Each one is delicious in it’s own right, and I especiallyRead more

This Pumpkin Seed Cranberry Chocolate Bark is the perfect seasonal snack for autumn, and will also be perfect for gift-giving later on in the year too!  What I love most about this Pumpkin Seed Cranberry Chocolate Bark is the combination of different flavours and textures.

Dark Chocolate Amaretto Prunes (Vegan)

Dark Chocolate Amaretto Prunes (Vegan)

These Dark Chocolate Amaretto Prunes were inspired by my Prune & Dark Chocolate Pudding. They’re subtly boozy, salty-sweet and all kinds of sophisticated.  The melt-in-your-mouth softness of the prunes contrasts perfectly with the hard chocolate shell, whilst the cacao nibs add an extra crunchy texture. And the deeply fruity, sweet-tart flavour of the prunes pairs beautifully with theRead more

Healthy Snickers Ice Cream Bites (Vegan + GF)

Healthy Snickers Ice Cream Bites (Vegan + GF)

You’re going to absolutely LOVE these 4-ingredient Healthy Snickers Ice Cream Bites! They’re insanely moreish, taste deceptively indulgent and unbelievably quick and easy to make. I’ll show you how!  I love dates but I love frozen dates even more – instead of turning icy and teeth-shatteringly hard like I thought they would, they actually become perfectly fudgy, chewy, andRead more

Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies (Vegan + GF)

Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies (Vegan + GF)

I decided to make these Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies because black bean brownies seem to be all the rage lately, but I thought adzuki red beans might be better suited, as they’re used in a lot of traditional Japanese desserts. Adzuki is a type of red bean grown in Eastern Asia that’s quite similar in size and textureRead more

Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Chocolate Bars (Vegan + GF)

Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Chocolate Bars (Vegan + GF)

These Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Chocolate Bars are much healthier than a Snickers but taste pretty similar – think gooey, caramel-like dates, rich, creamy peanut butter and crunchy peanuts enrobed in perfectly sweet, silky dark chocolate made extra special with a hint of sea salt. Using dark chocolate makes these chocolate bars taste particularly sophisticated, and also meansRead more
