Raw Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

I have a version of a similar recipe from a few years back, but this one turned out so much better. This one is almost like a creamy fudge texture, rather then being so dense. Enjoy 🙂 Ingredients: (brownie) 2 cups ground almonds (almond flour) 2/3 cup cocoa powder 1 1/2 cup dates, soaked inContinue reading “Raw Cookie Dough Brownie Bars”

Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie Bars

Raw vegan cheesecakes are the best for a summer treat. I paired this one with my favourite raw brownie recipe! This dessert is chalk full of nutrients from the nuts, raw cacao, and of course raspberries. Check out the write up I did about health benefits of raspberries on Toronto Vegetarian Association. Ingredients: (Brownie Layer)Continue reading “Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie Bars”

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

My favourite section of the grocery store is the discounted area where they sell cheap fruit because it’s “too ripe” (whatever that means). I got 6 avocados for $2!!! Best day.  Ripe fruit can sometimes be healthier than when it’s just picked, such as bananas offering more cancer-fighting properties when they become more brown. AvocadosContinue reading “Avocado Chocolate Mousse”

Chickpea Pasta Salad

It was one of those nights where I had no dinner plans and wasn’t even sure what I was making until it was finished! It turned out amazing.

Sweet Potato Pasta

I first started this recipe hoping for a creamy sauce but I wasn’t willing to use enough cashew cheese that it needed cause that stuff is expensive!!! I’m still really happy with what I created though.  It became more oil based, but there’s so many flavours I just kept finding things and adding them andContinue reading “Sweet Potato Pasta”

Raw Energy Bites

  When making my cheesecakes, I was left with a lot of leftover crust ingredients as I  originally got the numbers wrong. On the plus side I came up with this recipe! They seem to be very popular lately and I’ve been wanting to make them but never found a recipe that was intriguing enough. ThisContinue reading “Raw Energy Bites”
