Method

  1. Boil the sweet potatoes until cooked.

1 cup of flour (I used spelt but you can use what you wish)
1 cup oats, grounded

1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 egg or chia egg for vegan option
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Toppings of choice to decorate. We loved vegan choc, sultanas or hemp seeds.

Method 🍪

  1. In a bowl mix all dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients.
  2. Create a little hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly combine until cookie dough like.
  3. Preheat oven to 180degrees.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Notes – you can swap to cashew butter, almond butter etc. Any will work. You will need a little more milk though as these butters aren’t as oily when combining the mixture.

Vegan Blueberry Pie.

Blueberry Pie 🥧

I was #gifted a few punnets of @australianblueberries and to be honest I was pumped as we eat a punnet every few days in our house. With smoothies, snack boxes, homemade jam and did I mention snack boxes 🤪🙈. I wanted to make up something different and get creative in the kitchen after we went to the shops. I’m craving 🤰 a blueberry pie with coyo yogurt so I thought why not make one up. It was so easy to make.
.


Ingredients 🥧


2 sheets of short crust pastry(we use a vegan one)
1 large punnet of @australianblueberries
1 small red apple, grated
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 drops of green mandarin essential oil (could totally squeeze a lemon though)
2/3 cup of warm filtered water
3 tbsp. maple syrup

Method 🥧

  1. Preheat the oven to 180degrees.
  2. Line a small Pyrex pie dish.
  3. Throw in the blueberries and the grated apple into the centre.
  4. In a bowl mix, warm water, maple, spices and citrus.
  5. Pour over the apple and blueberry mix.
  6. Pop some of the remaining pastry on top however you wish to style.
  7. Bake in oven for 45minutes on 180 degrees. Then turn down to 100 degrees and bake a further 15minutes.
    .
    Serve warm or cold. We are teaming this with coyo, but you could totally serve it up with ice cream, custard, cream. Your choice. ✌🏼

Bread Pudding Christmas Cake

 

Bread Pudding Christmas Cake

This recipe was inspired by the taste of my Nanny Pat’s fruit cake and my Dad’s famous Bread Pudding. Both treats I enjoyed on special occasions like Christmas as a child.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Dates, soaked in ½ Cup Boiling Water
  • ¼ Cup Sultanas
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon or 1 Drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Mix Spice
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2 Slices Rye Bread, crustless and soaked in ½ Cup Almond Milk (overnight)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
  • 2 Chia Eggs (to make vegan) or 1 Organic Egg
  • 2/3 Cup Spelt Flour
  • Squeeze of ½ an Orange
  • 2/3 Cup Oats
  • ½ Cup Mixed Berries (I used Raspberries, Blueberries and Black Berries)
  • 1 Serve 180 Nutrition Coconut Superfood Blend (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 Cup Mixed Raw Nuts

 

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Prepare a round cake tin (20cms round) and line if you pan is non-stick. I used coconut oil to line mine.
  3. In the high speed blender (I use the Vitamix) mix the soaked rye in the milk, flour, dates, in hot water, maple, essential oil or and spices, egg, vanilla, protein (if using) orange and oil.
  4. Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl. Fold through the nuts and remaining fruit.
  5. Spoon the batter into the baking tin. You will need to bake for 45minute. Turn heat down to 150 degrees and cook for another 20minutes. Check with a fork to see to make sure it is cooked the whole way through.
  6. Allow the cake to cool a little, then place on cooling rack. Once completely cooled place the cake in an airtight container and store in fridge. Consume within 7 days.
  7. Decorate on your favourite cake stand, top with extra fruit and serve with your favourite cold dessert. We love Pana Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

NOTE – You can mix in 2 nips of rum or brandy if you wish for a Christmas treat.
