HOMEMADE VEGAN BUTTER {dairy free, gluten free, soy free, vegan}

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.

SPICED VEGAN FRENCH TOAST

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.

BLENDED BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE

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!

CINNAMON MAPLE GRANOLA

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..
