Naked Apple Pie

If you are confused by the title, “naked” refers to the fact that this dessert doesn’t have a crust. It is basically apple pie filling. While it has the comforting flavors of apple pie, it is a healthier snack option. Leaving out the crust makes this recipe vegan and gluten-free. I also made it refined sugar-free. Delicious and easy on the hips, that sounds like a win-win to me! Continue Reading…

Guilt-free Chocolate Ice Cream

As spring as finally sprung and hopefully is here to stay, I’m officially opening the ice cream season on my blog!

Ever since I made my raw & vegan Carrot Cakes with a creamy vanilla cashew frosting I was wondering what else I could be doing with a cashew base. The warmer temperatures screamed ice cream in my head. And I have been on the hunt for a healthier, guilt-free option that didn’t include bananas!

Inspired by my favorite healthy snack bar from the UK, Nakd’s “Cashew cookie”, I wanted to create a raw carrot cake version for Easter.

I, however, wanted to go one step further and create a raw carrot cake version in the form of little cakes, topped with a creamy frosting. And so my raw and vegan take on a classic dessert was born.

Carrot Hot Cross Buns

When I was in London, I saw hot cross buns in every bakery. So I did a little research and learned that they are a classic Easter treat in England, comparable to “Osterpinzen” in Austria. Apparently Hot Cross Buns are traditionally served on Good Friday. The cross on the sweet yeast buns represents the Cross of Christ. Intrigued, I tried my hands on this Easter treat but gave them my own little twist. I added finely grated carrots, orange zest and a orange-flavored icing. I also made the yeast dough dairy-free and almost vegan.  Continue Reading…

Raw & Vegan Brownie Bars

Hello 2015! I’m back and wanted to start the new year with a recipe. Even if you are not into new year’s resolutions, you may have over-indulged (like myself) over the holidays. January is the month, most of us are trying to start or get back into a healthy routine. Instead of fighting my sweet cravings I prefer to indulge in a healthy way. For example, with my raw & vegan Brownie Bars.
