For so long I’ve been trying to make simple yet successful vegan pancakes that are super easy to make, delicious and don’t fall to pieces….
This is for all the toast lovers out there looking for something different from your average PB+J or plain avocado. These vegan toppings are delicious, easy and healthy!…
It’s a big claim, I know, but I’m 100% certain that this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl is simply the best….
Don’t you just love waffles?…
Making smoothies can often be complicated and intimidating, but it shouldn’t have to be! So I wanted to share a recipe for an easy, accessible smoothie made with 4 simple ingredients. Although it can be nice to sometimes indulge, we don’t all have access to exotic ‘superfood’ powders. A pared back, wholesome smoothie is definitely enough and this smoothie in particular is just delicious.
Frozen berries, frozen banana, plant-based milk and protein. That’s it. Simple, wholesome and delicious.
This Vegan Berry Vanilla Protein Smoothie is perfect as a post-workout recovery snack, or for breakfast when paired with a slice of toast or some granola. I hope you enjoy!
Vegan Berry Vanilla Protein Smoothie
1 & 1/4 cup of rice milk (or other milk of choice)
2 heaped tbsp PSA Vanilla + Cinnamon Bio Pro Vegan Protein
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen mixed berries
(optional) a handful of frozen kale/spinach
Homemade granola baking in the oven has to be one of the best and most comforting aromas in the world. Just imagining the heavenly scent of cinnamon, almond and maple syrup filling the house is enough to make me want to make another batch of this Fig, Almond + Maple Granola.
This granola recipe is simple, nutritious and downright divine. It’s a recipe I originally made for Universal Store, but it’s too good not to share with you all!
For a perfect breakfast add some granola in a bowl with fresh strawberries and yogurt. I also love sprinkling it generously atop banana ice cream, or simply popping some in a ziplock bag for a delicious on-the-go snack.
Fig, Almond + Maple Granola
Makes one large jar.
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup buckwheat groats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup pepitas
1/3 shredded coconut
3 tbsp coconut oil melted
2 tsbp maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped dried figs
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius and place some baking paper on a large baking tray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (minus the dried figs) and mix well.
Then add in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and combine so everything is coated in coconutty, maple goodness.
Transfer the granola onto the baking tray and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Be sure to stir the granola after 10-15 minutes to ensure the granola is evenly toasted.
For me this means thick woolly socks, enjoying steaming cups of tea in bed, oversized sweaters, warming veggie soups, long baths, and of course, big bowls of porridge.
My go-to porridge recipe is my Basic Oats Recipe, but sometimes I feel like something a little extra.
Enter Maple Cinnamon Roasted Pears. These pears are a perfect way to spice up a bowl of oats. The cinnamon spice and the maple bring out the rich, sweet flavour of the pears – taking a wholesome bowl of porridge to another level of deliciousness.
But these Roasted Pears aren’t reserved for Porridge alone. They are a beautiful accompaniment atop pancakes or simply as a dessert with a scoop of yogurt or icecream and a drizzle of date syrup.
Maple Cinnamon Roasted Pears
2 ripe pears
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 180c and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a shallow bowl, combine the cinnamon, maple syrup and coconut oil. Cut the pears in half and evenly coat the pears in the thick maple mixture.
Now place the pear halves with the cut side facing up on to the baking tray and put them in the oven. After 10 minutes, flip the halves over and roast for another 10-15 minutes, or until lovely, golden and soft.
Meanwhile, make your porridge using my Basic Oats Recipe.
Once the pears and porridge are ready, serve the porridge in a bowl and place two halves of the Maple Cinnamon Roasted Pears on top – don’t forget to drizzle the lovely sweet syrup from the baking tray.
