Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

An indulgence like no other, the marvelous cupcake has the capacity to take all of your troubles away and make you gain weight like nothing else. Definitely a sometimes treat but perfect for parties, my Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing are sweet, rich and totally delicious. Exchange regular flour for gluten free flour if desired.

Easy Lite Coconut Macaroons

Coconut macaroons are always so easy to make, and usually only require ingredients already sitting in your pantry. My vegan Easy Lite Coconut Macaroons use aquafaba instead of egg whites and rice malt syrup instead of sugar, to make them a lighter, slightly less guilty treat. Dip them in your favourite vegan chocolate and serve with tea!

Lime and Rhubarb Crumble Cakes

Rhubarb is the kind of ingredient that often appears in muffin, tart and porridge recipes, and always adds a lovely flavour and a bad-arse splash of pink. Today I decided to combine rhubarb with some zesty and sour lime to make these cakes, and top them off with a hazelnut crumble. If you’re feeling daring you can play around with the flavours, just be sure to keep the ratios the same. This recipe does contain sugar, so eat this hearty treat in moderation, if you can control yourself after taking a bite.

Smashed Chickpea and Pesto Baguette

Eating a good sandwich is like watching John Munch fight crime in early Law and Order: SVU episodes: pretty much as good as it gets. Although I find deep comfort in a simple avocado and Vegemite toastie, sometimes I just need a little more oomph. My smashed chickpea blend is filling, protein packed, meaty and god damn delicious. You can mix up your other fillings, but pesto makes for a lovely accompaniment. Planetbox.com sent me the lovely lunchbox in this picture, which came with the cutest magnets that can be personalised! Pictured is the Shuttle box, which is non-toxic and great for school lunches. Get packing!

Earl Grey and Lemon Cakes with Lavender Syrup

Earl Grey, lemon and lavender make such a good combination, it’s almost surprising they don’t have their own hilarious sitcom by now. This recipe is something I’d make if I had special guests stopping by, and wanted to impress them by pretending I don’t just eat chocolate after dinner every night. These cakes have a lovely, lemon flavour that works magically with the Earl Grey tea leaves and the tart lavender syrup, and can easily be made gluten free by switching out regular flour.

Spiced Pumpkin Bread

I’m going to be honest, this recipe was the result of cheap pumpkin being on sale, and my desire not to waste a single gram. It’s easy to make and freezes well, and makes for a lightly spiced, low sugar snack. If you’re feeling inspired, try substituting pumpkin for another vegetable that’s on sale.

Blackberry Melting Moments

Melting Moments make for such an impressive sweet treat, and although time consuming, are really easy to make. You can experiment with different jam, buttercream and cookie flavours, but for me, nothing beats a classic shortbread, a buttery filling and a sweet jam. Be sure to enjoy in moderation!

Easy Oat and Pumpkin Cookies

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, not unlike this recipe! You probably have most of these ingredients already at home, so it’s just a matter of combining them in a bowl, shaping them into cookies and throwing them into the oven. Even quicker is the time it’ll take to eat them.

Lite Choc Chip Biscotti

Biscotti is such a versatile snack, once you have a basic recipe you can mix and match a whole variety of flavours and fillers. More importantly, perhaps, you can make them days in advance and they still taste great. This version is low in sugar, but if you’d prefer a sweet recipe you can switch out the rice malt syrup for a desired about of sugar.

No-bake Mixed Berry Chocolate Slice

Baking a dessert is good, eating a dessert is better, but not having to bake AND being able to eat dessert, is definitely the best. My No-bake Mixed Berry Chocolate Slice is really easy to make and combines a chewy chocolate base with a creamy and light berry layer. It stores in the freezer and is made with a bunch of healthy, wholesome ingredients. And if you close your eyes and really focus, it’ll almost taste like a McDonald’s birthday cake, just healthier, more ethical, and handled by far fewer children.
