Raw Vegan Matcha and Coconut Tart {nut free}

I love oxymorons. Hello, healthy brownies, lowfat chocolate cake, vegan bolognese, oil-free muffins and dairy-free icecream. Just like it seems to be a given that brownies are unhealthy and spag bol involves meat, the labels “raw vegan” and “nut free” do not seem to go together. Raw vegan desserts generally contain a lot of rawRead more

Healthy Vegan Iced Coffee

Now this is a big deal! Are you guilty of spending too much money on iced coffees and frappés from a certain coffee shop with nine letters? Frozen drinks with lots of sugar, fat, artificial ingredients and other nasties? I used to when I was in my twenties. I was lucky enough that the only damageRead more

Oil-free Blueberry Muffins (vg, gf)

Back in the days when I ate wheat and dairy and generally all things processed and sugary I had a staple recipe for blueberry muffins, which – on the rare occasions that I baked – I always fell back to. I loved it as it was lower in fat than other muffin recipes, replacing most ofRead more
