Choc-Mint Protein Balls

Gluten-free | Nut-free | Vegan

These choc-mint babies have been a firm favourite on the blog for a while now. Made with plant-based protein powder, they are also nut-free, gluten-free and vegan so they suit pretty much any dietary requirement! 

I love them because the peppermint adds a natural sweetness so you can keep the sweetener quite low. But you can always adjust to suit your personal taste.

 

Buckwheat Zucchini Muffins

Gluten-free | Nut-free

Always an exciting moment for the savoury people when a savoury muffin makes it onto the list! I like to make these on Sundays so that I have a quick breakfast or snack ready for the week ahead. 

I've also calculated the nutritional information for the muffins if you're interested.

 

Raw Rocky Road

Gluten-free | Grain-free | Vegan

This is a recipe that you can get creative with. You can't really mess it up. You make a raw chocolate mixture and then add in a bunch of your favourite things for crunch, chew and a bit of sweetness.

Perfect little treat to keep in the fridge or freezer for those moments when you want something chocolatey.

 

Flourless Cacao Christmas Cakes

Gluten-free | Grain-free | Vegan

Sweetened only with fresh Medjool dates, these little flourless cakes are free from refined sugar and contain a good dose of fibre and nutrients. 

And you don't have to wait for Christmas, they're tasty all year round. The icing is my favourite part.

 

Raw Blondie Fudge

Gluten-free | Dairy-free | Vegan

If you're looking for a raw, creamy fudge recipe that doesn't use coconut oil, this is for you. I make it with cacao butter instead which gives an amazing creaminess.

You can also get creative with what you add to the base. I love dried cranberries, chopped brazil nuts and cacao nibs but the possibilities are endless.
