Chocolate Orange Marble Loaf

I’ve been having slices of this loaf for breakfast every day this past week! Sometimes I’ve had another slice for tea in the afternoon… heh.

It might look like there’s a lot of instructions in the recipe, but it’s really simple to make! I think it’s perfect to make over the weekend, store in the fridge and eat over the week. So it’s great if you need something really quick to grab and eat in the morning.

Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

This is one of my favourite cookie recipes! I find them SO delicious, and they’re packed full of wholesome ingredients. I make these frequently to bring with me to school (because I need a treat every now and then to keep me awake during lectures, you know?). My non-vegan friends love these cookies too!

The raspberries in the raspberry sauce give it a tartness, which complements the chocolate perfectly (berries and chocolate are the best combination! But look out for my chocolate ginger cookies…).

I really hope you enjoy this one! The cookie is fudgey and soft, and I think it’s just the perfect treat! Let me know what you think!

One of my favourite animals is the turtle, and of course chocolate is my absolute favourite. These are gooey when warm, but nice and crumbly when fresh out of the fridge.

It may take a little time to put these together, but I think it’s worth it when you see them emerge out of the oven. My baby brother and my family loved these cuties, and when you see the smile on their faces, it’s completely worth it!

This cookie is vegan, and oil-free as well as refined sugar free. I used nut butter to replace the oil content, so it’s really tasty but relatively healthier. I used walnut butter in this recipe. Walnuts are awesome because nearly 14% of the fat content in walnuts comes from alpha linoleic acid, which is an omega 3! Walnuts are also one of the nuts with the highest antioxidant contents.
