I’ve had so many requests for this recipe! These No Bake Peanut Butter Oaty Bars are definitely my new favourite snack. They’re seriously quick and easy to whip up, and pretty fun to make too! I’m so obsessed with the combination of the pumpkin seeds and cacao nibs with the sweet chocolate chips.
I cannot explain my EXCITEMENT to share this vegan butter recipe!
Pre-vegan, I was a butter lover. I loved it on toast, sandwiches, crumpets, baked potatoes, scones, potato cakes.. you name it. So it’s been an aim of mine to re-create a vegan butter for a while now, and I’ve finally nailed it!
Personally, I don’t like using the supermarket hydrogenated spreads and margarines too often. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with them (in fact they’re brilliant in baking) but I actually don’t think they taste very buttery when spread on toast, etc! Therefore, I wanted to create a slightly healthier buttery alternative – and here it is!
How about spreading some of this vegan butter on a warm slice of my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread? Mmm.
This breakfast parfait is SO delicious. It’s sweet, creamy, refreshing, crunchy and super satisfying. It may look impressive, but it only requires minimal effort! Honestly! It took me a total of 5 minutes to whip up. It’s a totally vegan breakfast and naturally gluten free. Packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, fibre + omega 3s, it’ll power you through your busy morning and will keep you feeling healthy and vibrant. No more dull bowls of cereal around here.
So I have to admit, I’m kinda obsessed with this recipe. I can’t stop making it! I used to love french toast when I was younger (or as my Dad used to call it: ‘eggy bread’..) but never did I think this classic could be veganised. But here we are, and it’s absolutely delicious! Seriously – you won’t believe it’s not made with egg. The magic ingredient is ground flaxseed, which I often use to make ‘flax eggs’ in my recipes. It thickens beautifully to create a thick, egg-like substitute.
This is my new favourite breakfast. It’s ridiculously quick and easy to prepare and to cook. I prefer the texture so much more to normal cooked oats – and that’s not mentioning the incredible health benefits of quinoa!
I’ve always adored banana bread, and have experimented with many plant based versions in the past. That’s why I was so excited when I perfected this recipe! It uses purely plant based and gluten free ingredients, and the addition of the moist blueberries makes them the perfect healthy treat. Try it warm with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and a drizzle of nut butter.
I absolutely love having buckwheat as a change from oats for breakfast. Completely gluten free and high in protein, fibre, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus; buckwheat really is the perfect way to start your day! And easier than you thought to prepare. The soaking overnight is important not only to aid digestion, but it also drastically cuts down on the amount of cooking time in the morning as it softens the buckwheat groats!
Granola might actually be one of my favourite foods ever.. it’s the combination of toasted nuts and seeds, the clusters of baked oats and the sweet, chewy raisins. This recipe requires a few basic, nutritious ingredients and your kitchen will smell incredible while it’s baking! It’s amazing on smoothies, with coconut yoghurt or even straight from the jar..
If someone told me I’d be making my own nut milks a year ago I would have laughed in their face.. but here I am! It’s actually one of my favourite things to do – it’s so satisfying and so much easier than you think! Give it a go – and don’t throw away your nut pulp.. make my turmeric nut pulp crackers.
