These are based on a old recipe I'd forgotten to put up on the blog. There was 150g maple syrup in those bad boys about 2 years ago. OMG I couldn't bring myself to put them up. Though on second thoughts I just might. Back then thanks to food intolerances I had a massive sugar craving. These days my sweet tooth is more sedate. I found once my diet/lifestyle turned completly plant-based the sugar cravings reduced significantly of their own accord.
Are you like me and crave Afternoon Tea but want it without dairy, wheat, gluten and eggs? Then check out our latest course which has plenty to choose from. All the recipes are packed with flavour - you won't even realise there's no dairy, wheat, gluten or eggs in them.
Even your Carnivore and Vegetarian friends will devour these too. Obviously suitable for vegans. The recipes have no nasty ingredients - just honest-to-goodness real food.
Don't like buckwheat as a substitute for rice or quinoa in your savoury side dishes? We're the same, just can't take the taste. Yet because it's so healthy we had to find a way to get it into us. Here's a breakfast treat that is a sure fire winner alternative, a definite must try. We sweeten it with apple juice concentrate, vanilla extract and homemade raspberry jam (which had no sweeteners in it either except what's got from the berries themselves). Just right for breakfast time.
We generally, well up until now never, have cane sugar in our recipes. This is here as when I was struggling with food intolerances my white sugar cravings were crazy. With that in mind I'm adding this oldie as if you're in a similar boat then be easy on yourself, once they are sorted your cravings (as did mine) will hopefully ease for you. This will give you the willpower to move to more healthier sweet options.
I dismissed the humble chickpea years ago. That all changed when I went dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. It's a very welcome and staple ingredient in my storecupboard nowadays. It's so easy to use chickpeas to make a simple vegetable soup a hearty dinner, or in a hummus for a tasty savoury treat with crackers, as the protein on a salad.
As the cold air starts to hit the bones again we were yearning for a fruit crumble during the week. Tony if given the chance would prefer apple tart with lashings of dairy cream. Crumbles are so easy to make though so they generally win out. Plus by using different fruits each time you have a different and comforting dessert.
