Vegan chocolate raspberry scones – tender vegan scones made with coconut oil and filled with chocolate chunks and raspberries, topped with a raspberry glaze. Easy to make and amazing for breakfast, brunch or a snack!
While I do love a plain scone, split and spread thickly with jam and cream; sometimes a flavoured one is what I want. One that has enough taste and sweetness of it’s own that it needs nothing more than a smear of butter to really make it shine. (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip cookies – crispy round the edges, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips and really easy to make; these cookies will become your new favourite recipe!
I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip banana bread – a vegan version of everyone’s favourite bake. Easy to make using storecupboard ingredients, packed with chocolate chips and topped with a blueberry glaze; this banana bread is seriously good!
Banana bread has to be my all-time favourite bake. My mum used to make it regularly when I was growing up and now I make it whenever there are blackened bananas in the fruit bowl (either that or they go into a smoothie). I have been trying to eat plant based most of the time recently so I wanted to make a vegan version of banana bread. The good news is that it is really easy to do and it is indistinguishable from the regular kind! (more…)
Vegan peanut butter chocolate chip pecan bars – incredibly moreish vegan peanut butter snack bars loaded with chocolate chips and pecans.
These vegan peanut butter chocolate chip pecan bars are crazy good; I could not stop eating them. They are somewhere between a cake and a blondie in texture; with a mild peanut butter flavour, a hint of cinnamon and loads of chocolate chips and crunchy pecans. (more…)
Chocolate orange hot cross buns – a delectable chocolatey twist on the classic Easter bread. Perfect for breakfast or a snack.

These chocolate orange mousse pots are an insanely delicious dessert that doesn’t leave you feeling overly full as they are so light and airy.

Chocolate cupcakes for two – a small batch of just two delicious vegan chocolate cupcakes that are incredibly quick and easy to whip up and so tasty! Perfect for Valentines Day.
I figured I should probably do a Valentines Day recipe; not that we ever bother with the holiday, but any excuse to make cake right?! Especially when the recipe makes just two delicious cupcakes so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating most of a full batch of them yourself… (more…)

Thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate – rich and lusciously thick vegan hot chocolate with gingerbread spices; refined sugar free.
The weather has been pretty grim recently – wet and cold and miserable. As such, I’ve been drinking rather a lot of hot chocolate in the evenings. I am usually happy to have a regular (almond) milk and hot chocolate mix one but occasionally I am in the mood for something a bit more decadent which is when I make this thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate. (more…)
Vegan chocolate fudge cake – an easy to make, moist, fudgy vegan chocolate cake topped with coconut milk ganache. No one will be able to guess that it’s vegan!
This cake is a vegan version of my favourite chocolate cake – a rich, moist chocolate cake slathered with dark chocolate ganache. I’ve been sitting on the recipe for a while now but I figured that seeing as it is Veganuary I really should get round to sharing it. (more…)
