So, I have to admit, I’ve never been a ‘superfood powder‘ kinda gal.
I’ve always felt slightly sceptical about the magical ‘fix it all’ claims of the superfood revolution. Although, this probably has more to do with the usually off-putting taste, which manages to override my self preservation instinct on a murky Monday morning when a slice of toast and a brew seems far more comforting.. But it was with an open mind that I accepted the kind offer of the delightful Charlotte and her boyfriend Sean who have just launched Super U, whose products are all organic, vegan and gluten free.
These brownies are to die for! So gooey, decadent and delicious. The key to that gooey texture? PUMPKIN. Yep! Pumpkin puree is the base to these brownies – and the result is just glorious! They’re totally vegan and gluten free – and so tasty heated up with a generous serving of vegan ice-cream/yoghurt. The perfect wintery dessert!

This fudge is super simple and delicious. You won’t believe how quick and easy it is to whip up – with the most minimal ingredients, yet the richest and creamiest taste. It’s totally vegan and gluten free, making it the PERFECT snack for everybody! Make sure you hashtag #ginabnutrition or tag me @ginabnutrition so I can see your creations!
These cookies are SO delicious! The combination of the toasted pecans, chewy cranberries and sweet chocolate chips is just to die for. The flavours are so festive and they’re perfect as an addition to afternoon tea. They’re made with a few simple ingredients and are totally vegan and gluten free! You’ve got to try these. Make sure to tag me @ginabnutrition or #ginabnutrition so I can see your creations!
This tart is SO delicious. The ultimate vegan and gluten free indulgence! With a crumbly oaty base, a sweet cashew-date caramel middle and a smooth chocolate ganache topping. It’s super simple to make, and requires only easy-to-source ingredients! It’s perfect for a dinner party dessert.
These muffins are to DIE for. If you love banana bread, these are perfect for you! You wouldn’t believe they’re made with such nutritious ingredients, like oats, almonds and cacao powder. They’re indulgent, chocolatey and perfectly moist. They only use vegan and gluten free ingredients, and make the best dessert warmed with a dollop of creamy coconut yogurt!
Okay so I created these on a whim the other day when I wanted a quick and healthy snack that would sustain me until my next meal! These cookies literally take 5 mins to prep, one bowl, 6 simple ingredients, stick them in the freezer and you’re good to go!
This is a very rare savoury recipe from me! If you’re looking for a dairy-free, vegan alternative to satisfy that cheesy craving – you’ve gotta try this! I often make cashew cheese as a dip or sauce to have with meals, but this recipe is sliceable and absolutely perfect for a cheeseboard. The trick is agar-agar powder – I got mine pretty cheap off Amazon! It can be made in under half an hour (aside from setting time) and is so so easy to make. Go go go!
These have to be my new fave treats. They’re chewy, crunchy + deliciously sweet all at the same time 😍 This recipe is a great one for kids too – its so fun and takes no time at all! Cornflakes don’t have to be just a breakfast cereal! They’re actually very versatile and work amazingly in this recipe. Corn is naturally gluten free, and the recipe is also completely vegan. Enjoy!
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.
