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!

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.

Gluten Free Wagon Wheels

Wagon Wheels were a favourite of mine growing up, but between the milk and gelatine, they no longer seem to be a friend of mine. It took me several attempts to create a version that tasted just as good as the original, but without the nasty ingredients that make vegan fairies lose their wings. I usually encourage my readers to substitute ingredients if they feel so inclined, but for this one, I’d suggest following it closely. Your gluten intolerant, vegan fairy friends will love it.

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 Lime and Matcha Tart

Matcha is one of those ingredients that suddenly seems to be appearing in everything, and frankly, thrown into a cup of boiling water is not my idea of a sophisticated way to enjoy it. This recipe combines zesty lime, creamy cashews and hint of matcha tea blend to create a super healthy, light and tasty slice. It stores in the freezer so you can eat some now and save the rest for your hipster friends who are visiting next month. Matcha later!

Lemon and Roasted Peanut Basmati

I’m always looking for ways to up my rice game, mainly because I’m strange and think about grains a little too much. This dish is super easy and is packed with so many plant based goodies, all you have to do is throw in some crispy tofu and greens and you’re good to go. You can switch out the spices, currants and coconut for what you have in the pantry, or use a white basmati rice if you prefer.
