Tempeh Stuffed Mushrooms

Oat and Barberry Bisciuts

Barberries are tart and juicy, and although aren't everyone's cup of tea, taste marvelous when combined with oats. My Oat and Barberry Biscuits are healthy, wholesome and make a wonderful morning tea snack, and can be adapted to include chocolate chips, spices and sugar if desired. The recipe uses banana as a plant-based, cruelty-free egg substitute, which also adds a lovely sweetness to the mix. Make them in 45 minutes and feel like a champion, and if your sweet tooth still isn't satisfied, check out my healthier Apple Pastry Puffs recipe.

  • 150g quick oats
  • 25g dried barberries

Apple Pastry Puffs

I love a good mini-pastry, for breakfast, dessert, as a snack, or for pretty much any meal quite frankly. This is a time consuming but easy recipe for a basic vegan puff pastry, with an apple filling that can be made without or without any added sugar. It's made with plenty of vegan butter and isn't so much a healthy treat, but if you avoid adding sugar to the filling it's a better option than many of the store-bought desserts. Feel free to experiment with fillings based on what you have handy! Check out my Oat and Barberry Biscuits for another low sugar treat.

  • 1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 3 tbs warm water
  • 1/2 tbs sugar
  • 220g 00 flour
  • 100g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 150ml soy milk
  • 50ml water
  • Extra flour (you'll need lots!)
  • 200g vegan butter

Ingredients for the filling

  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 4 tbs water
  • 2 tbs brown sugar, optional

Easy Banana Celebration Cupcakes

Banana cupcakes are a classic choice for the vegan baker, as the banana makes a wonderful egg substitute, and adds a lovely moistness (sorry, I know you hate that word) to the end result. Recipes don't get much easier than this, and you probably have all of the ingredients you need, especially the ripe bananas that are on their way to your compost heap. They freeze well and the recipe can also be used for a fabulous banana cake, so add it to your list immediately!
Ingredients

Ingredients for the cupcakes

  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Ingredients for the buttercream

  • 1 1/2 cups vegan butter
  • 3-4 cups icing sugar
  • A few drops of caramel essence (or to taste)
  • Soy milk, as needed
  • Food colouring (optional)
  • Decorations, such as sprinkles or caramel sauce
