Chocolate Orange Gingerbread Cake – gluten-free, vegan and naturally sweetened

La Palma Island Banana Bread – gluten-free, vegan deliciousness

After leaving my old life behind I've gravitated towards simplicity. I feel to hold to space open for the right things to come along, so I am keen not to fill my space unnecessarily.

Salted Caramel Chocolates “Lucuma Superfood Version” – vegan

Today I am sharing a superfood sweet treat made with some of my favourite ingredients.

Easy Homemade Vegan Chocolate with Coconut Sugar (and how to stop coconut sugar sinking)

I've shared coconut sugar sweetened, chocolate recipes before. However, I've lost count of the number of people who've said to me that the sugar doesn't 'dissolve' properly or that it 'sinks to the bottom' or it can be a bit crystally or crunchy. It's true this can happen. In this post, we are going to [...]
