While it can make you feel amazing to eat healthy, and there are plenty of healthy AND delicious dishes, sometimes you are just craving something sweet or any kind of comfort food. If you still want to make it yourself, instead of just ordering a pizza, I have got you covered with these recipes!
Last week, I could only eat soft foods because I had a wisdom tooth surgery. And since I was really craving chocolate and we had a few ripe avocados, I tried out this chocolate mousse.
If you are currently (self-)quarantined at home, and don’t know what to do with yourself anymore…why not bake a cake? This vegan red wine cake is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made, and it turns out so good every time!
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
When it comes to cooking, I’m lazy. If there is any way to avoid a pile of dishes to clean up after, I will choose it. So naturally, I gravitate towards one-dish meals and shortcuts like this mugcake. You can whip it up in one mug and eat it straight out of there!
I’ve never made vegan mousse au chocolat. I never wanted to try the full-fat version with avocado, so I just contented myself with dark chocolate for the occasional chocolate fix.
Yup, this is basically a mini cake for one. Or baked oatmeal in a mug. Whatever you want to see it as, mugcakes are the perfect dessert or afternoon snack – easy and quick to make and super indulgent!
If you have been following me for a while, you know that this vegan baking thing is still quite the struggle for me. And adding the gluten-free criteria to it in the past few weeks certainly has not made it any easier! 🙂 Apart from these perfect vegan & gluten-free brownies, I haven’t found a lot of recipes that reliably turn out well.
I have been seeing countless variations of protein balls on Instagram – with matcha, chia, spirulina, maca… And you know me. I had to try them myself! So I made a pretty basic version for the start, with chia seeds and peanut butter.
I admit I’ve been having my troubles with vegan baking endeavors… One of my grandmothers used to have her own bakery, so she was a baker by trade. Whenever we visit her, we are served delicious homemade cakes. Since going vegan, I have been trying to bring baked vegan goods, but was always a little ashamed because they couldn’t keep up with her cakes in the slightest. I have tried a few vegan cakes, muffins and brownies and apart from this raw-vegan cheesecake (which technically doesn’t count as baking), I was never happy with the result. Never!
