Healthy Vegan Buckeyes with Popped Quinoa

You want to hear the story of how these delights came about? So, we were invited to a vegan bake-sale picnic in De Waal Park in Cape Town. Why have I never been there before? A serene and green park amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Sunshine, shady trees,...

Vegan Fudgy Choc Chip Blondies

Blondie bars often pop up on my social media feeds, but either they aren’t popular in South Africa or some how I have been missing out on these beauties for years! Blonde moment, but I admit I had to ask google why these gooey, fudgy bars are in fact called Blondies....

Vegan Chocolate Cake with frosting

  A vegan cake that tastes just like a traditional rich chocolate cake? Huh! Never! There's no way, right? Well, I was wrong. I'd choose this cake over any cake on a dessert table. And I can guarantee you that no-one would even notice that it was a wheat-free,...

Lemon Crunch Energy Balls

I have an obsession with date balls at the moment. I can’t stop playing with different flavours. When I made these I got stuck on this one flavour and have made them over and over (and over) again! I love the tart lemon zest, the hint of ginger and the crunch of the...

Cookie Dough Monsters

  After months of drought Cape Town has been hit by a monstrous storm! With schools closed for the day, and house-bound kids driving each other CRAZY, I got them to do something fun and rewarding. They created these fun cookie-dough monster cookies and while still...

Flourless Honey Almond Cake

  With my mother-in-law coming over for afternoon tea, I whipped up a flourless almond cake and served it warm out of the oven, drizzled with honey and toasted nuts. The cake is light and fluffy, and perfect for anyone following a gluten-free or grain-free diet. It's...
