Raw vegan brownie bliss balls

Raw vegan brownie bliss balls

Oh my gosh do I have a surprise for you! These chocolately treats are going to rock your socks off.

Packed full of nutritious raw cashews and cacao, these bliss balls are a real cinch to make – just chuck everything into the food processor, blitz, roll and you’re done. Once chilled, the coconut oil and dates give these little yummies a sweet chewy texture that is pretty much guaranteed to send pesky sugar cravings packing. They taste so chocolately and naughty you would swear they have sugar in them (but they don’t!).

I used this recipe last weekend to create a base for a chocolate mousse slice (recipe for that one to come really soon) and everyone (even my lovely omnivore friends) raved about the base. Big thumbs up.

Who ever thought healthy vegan treats could taste this good? Continue Reading →

Warm mashed banana oats with seeds and spice and all things nice

Warmed mashed banana oats 4

Now that winter has arrived in Australia, I’m moving away from my early morning smoothie to something warmer and heartier.

When we were little girls Mum would whip up a huge bowl of porridge, laden with sultanas, drizzled with soy milk and sweetened with fresh honey from Dad’s bee keeping days.

This recipe adds a twist to this childhood favourite. Banana is mashed through as the oats cook, giving them a sweet flavour without the need for sugars or honey. The seeds and coconut give an extra nutritional punch and the berries just make it all look really pretty.

I hope you enjoy.
