Although I'm not a vegan myself these are raw vegan and one of my son's favourite treats. They are gluten free, dairy free and almost guilt free :) These little gems are easy to make and keep fresh in an air tight container for 10-14 days. These Carob Balls make [...]
A delightfully refreshing dessert perfect for a afternoon tea party or a zesty finish to a casual dinner with friends. You can't rush perfection and this dessert truly needs time to set. Once the filling has been mixed up and poured on the crust it will need the full time [...]
I love tarts but the crusts are usually loaded with fat and carbs which isn't very waist line friendly. Sure there are fabulous crustless quiches and tarts out there but sometimes you just want a little flaky goodness. This crust is made of almond and coconut flour so it does [...]
