Snickerdoodle Bliss Balls

Maple Munchies

To prepare for the current Christmas craziness of overeating on candy, I did a sugarfree November, where I cut out all industrial sugar (meaning white sugar in chocolate, drinks, pastries and so on). This was tough for about 2 weeks as I was strongly craving my afternoon treat, but after those first weeks my body got used to it.

Lentil Apple Salad

Lentil & Apple Salad

Another salad before the summer is gone completely! This is also an easy vegan recipe, which you can bring to a barbeque or make as a side for dinner. And you can bring the leftovers to work for lunch the next day 😉 Ingredients: 200g uncooked lentils 1 apple 0.5 small red onion For the dressing: 1 tbsp olive oil 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp maple syrup salt & pepper to taste Instructions: Wash & drain lentils. In twice the amount of water, bring the lentils to a boil and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Drain the remaining water and let the lentils cool off. Peel & chop onion. Cut apple into little cubes. Then mix both with the lentils. Mix all ingredients for the dressing and mix with salad.   Zutaten: 200g ungekochte Linsen 1 Apfel 0.5 kleine rote Zwiebel Für das Dressing: 1 EL Olivenöl 1.5 EL Apfelessig 1 EL Ahornsirup Salz & Pfeffer Zubereitung: Die Linsen waschen & abgießen und in der doppelten Menge Wasser für etwa 5-10 Minuten köcheln …

Vegan Glutenfree Apple Crumble Muffins

Apple Crumble Muffins

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.

Healthy Vegan Protein Brownies

Vegan Protein Brownies

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!

Raw Vegan Cheesecake

Raw Vegan Cheesecake

Yes, I did it! I finally made my first vegan cheesecake. After craving the Cheesecake Factory for the past few weeks, I decided to try making a vegan cheesecake. And I must say, I was extremely amazed!! This raw vegan cheesecake is made almost entirely from nuts and has a consistency that comes pretty close to the real deal. I topped it with passion fruit, which was a perfect combination! You can also top it with caramel sauce or any other kind of fruit. Ingredients: 130 g almonds 200 g cashews (unsalted) 75 g dates (pitted) 60 g agave syrup 75 g coconut oil 75 ml lemon juice 0.5 tsp vanilla powder 1 tsp cinnamon water Instructions: Soak almonds & cashews in water separately for 2 – 12 hours. Blend dates & almonds in a food processor to create a sticky mass. Add water & cinnamon and blend briefly until the mixture is sticky. Line a 18 cm springform pan with baking paper and fill pan with the mixture. Press mixture onto bottom & sides …
