So I am going to have a 4 week sugar free period starting Monday and to stick to it, I am trying to use up everything for the various parties we are going to so it’s not me or Red eating it all ourselves.
One of my favourite recipes is these lemon bars: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/bake-sale-lemon-bars
SOOOOOO bad for you but so good!
So for NYE, I have:
– rice crispie slices
– rocky road
– nutella and kahlua cupcakes with ferrero rocher toppings
– lemon bars
For the 2nd, NY celebration, I have:
– more rice crispie bars, different recipe!
– leftover lemon bars
– no bake nutella cheesecake- yum, you read that right!
How delish do they sound?! And I am actually going to share it too!! 😉 xx
So, last week I cooked for a tiny army and so was left with tonnes of aquafaba- my new favourite ingredient to play with!
If you aren’t aware of it, it’s basically an egg white substitute and is originally the brine from a can of chickpeas (or other beans but primarily chickpeas). Can be used to make pancakes, cakes, brownies, meringues and everything else with eggs in it really.
Today, I baked brownies for a friend’s surprise birthday party- risky to try a new recipe I know but it’s the only way I was gonna be baking tonight. Think I would add a little more butter as mine seemed a little flaky but here’s the recipe I followed: http://frieddandelions.com/perfect-brownies/
I would say the recipe would work well on its own as is but being in need to finish all the leftovers in the fridge, I used up the salted caramel to replace the amount of maple syrup in it.
Just took a test bite and I want it all! NOM!!
And this is what I want to use the frozen aquafaba (there’s just so much in the fridge!!) for:
And for the lemon curd: http://atravellingcook.com/2015/05/egg-free-lemon-butter.html#more-883
And perhaps for breakfast tomorrow- a good brekkie does kill a hangover: http://avirtualvegan.com/vegan-omelette/

Last night, I was making myself some brownies to use up all the chocolate in the house so I wouldn’t keep munching on it! Absolutely delish!!!
Grated sweet potato- 2 cups
All the chocolate pieces you can find or cocoa- 2 cups (because of all this you don’t need sugar)
3 tbsp coconut flour and same amount coconut oil
A pinch of vanilla extract and a pinch of baking powder
Mix well, bake for 25 mins at 180 degrees, let cool and cook through- eat warm.
Comment if you make this and are as in love with it as I am.
PS: Even tried making grated sweet potato and cheese pancakes- they are delicious too- try them!
1. Creative Mind
Not mine necessarily but people with creative minds around me! It’s always good to have them about 🙂 They definitely see things differently!
There are times when all you want are sweets, sweets and more sweets and when you get healthier versions of them, even better!
Let’s never take it for granted, sigh. So glad when I find mind every time I lose it- which is regularly enough!
