Raspberry Macadamia & Chocolate Muffins

These muffins are probably my favourite recipe I’ve created to date! They’re so nutritious – packed full with the goodness of raspberries and macadamias, and my favourite vegan dark chocolate too.

If there’s anything you create this weekend, let it be this one! My mom has declared these muffins her favourite creation of mine so far, and even the non-vegan boyfriend loves them too.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can have it for breakfast or as a snack (sometimes I have two in a day heh). They’re oil-free too, so I used a homemade applesauce to keep the muffins moist!

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!

Sunset “Cheesecakes”

These vegan “cheesecakes” were quite a hit among my friends! They have a tropical coconut flavour, but also have a citrus-y aftertaste because of the addition of lemon juice.

These are actually pretty sweet, and they make for a decadent treat (i.e. have it in moderation!). I would probably make these for a dinner party, to treat family and friends to some vegan desserts! However, I probably wouldn’t make these to bring to school as they’d melt haha. I love how these look and taste!

Steamed Orange Cakes

I made these cakes with Chinese New Year vibes in mind! I love the subtle tanginess of the orange in these little steamed cakes. There are also deep caramel undertones from the coconut sugar.

These aren’t your traditional steamed cakes – the texture is a bit denser and not as fluffy. That’s because I used whole spelt flour instead of the normal white flour. I also replaced white sugar with coconut sugar. This means that you’ll be getting a more wholesome and healthy treat that you can bring with you to school or work!

Chocolate Walnut Turtles

I’ve been enjoying making little critters over the holidays. I was inspired to make these, after I made Remy from Veggiekins’hedgehog almond cookies !

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.
