Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Donut Holes

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Donut Holes

A super easy, no-cook peanut-butter chocolate dessert that is deliciously addictive and as guilt-free as they come! Inspired by This Rawsome Vegan Life which is one of my favorite blogs kept by one of my favorite persons <3

I am a big fan of bite-sized treats that can be kept in the freezer, because I can just grab one little piece with my tea or coffee anytime I want and not run the risk of binging on a whole cake. Although making this particular one on a whim wouldn’t be a big deal either. No cooking, baking whatsoever and takes mere minutes to make, here is the recipe:

Threesome Protein Salad

Threesome Protein Salad

Threesome protein salad with quinoa, brown rice and green lentils; a delicious and satisfying powerhouse of protein and fiber.

We have been gradually increasing our workout intensity as a family. Starting with a foundation of yoga and cardio, we added rock climbing and calisthenics elements. As overhyped as the protein argument is, we needed to increase the quantity accordingly.

The Ultimate Savory Cashew Sauce

The Ultimate Savory Cashew Sauce

Sauces serve the purpose of turning bland into edible. But some sauces go further and turn everything they touch into magical. This is one of them!

The sauce uses raw cashews and plant milk as the base components. And it features a fantastic flavor profile with ginger, apple cider vinegar, mustard and nutritional yeast. It has a lot of savory depth and warmth with a wonderfully creamy, satisfying texture. It was an instant hit in our house. Eating healthy and feeling satisfied at the same time is priceless.

Harissa Vegballs

Harissa Vegballs

This is a pleaser! Hearty, spicy, smoky vegballs with a ton of high quality plant protein. I make this and similar variations often for dinners, entertaining and potlucks. First thing people notice when they bite into one is generally the texture, followed by a rich variety of flavors thanks to, in large part, Mina‘s spicy harissa sauce.

You can also make extra and freeze for a great lunch option later, alongside pasta, rice, a salad or even in sandwiches. Delicious, nutritious and versatile, like any favorite dish should be. The recipe is below.

Homemade Seitan Roast

Seitan Roast

Get in my sammich now! I am so smitten with this delicious plant protein with an unbelievable texture. As much as I love cooking, sometimes I just want a quick sandwich or a wrap with an emphasis on protein. Like right after I had an intense workout. This fits the bill wonderfully.

For those who are unfamiliar, seitan is very much like a mock meat with a convincing form, texture and taste. This very same recipe could well be called vegan pastrami in my opinion. Or it can be turned in deli slices, burger patties with different flavorings etc.. There are so many possibilities.  The recipe is below.

Fig Bites

Vegan Fig Bars

It is a good time of year to be obsessed with figs right now. So I am kick starting it with a frozen dessert perfect for the summer heat. The soft, creamy top layer reminds a little bit of fall flavors, incorporating figs in the blend. Fig slices also accentuate the top, adding more of their wonderful flavor and texture, and defining the bite size cuts. The crust is one of the trusty variations, but adds in cocoa for another layer of taste. Here is the recipe: Continue Reading

Peanut Butter Pretzel Fudge

Peanut Butter Pretzel Fudge

Sometimes my food fantasies build up to a dessert that I can’t even stop thinking about. The inspiration for this was likely just chocolate dipped pretzels. But those do lack a few things. Namely more chocolate, and peanut butter, and nuts! Now it is all complete. This is a delightfully milky (almond milky!), peanut buttery fudge with a really interesting playful texture thanks to the combination of pretzel pieces and hazelnuts. And the little bit of saltiness just make the sweet more three dimensional.

It is incredibly easy. No baking. Takes like 15 minutes or so and the whole recipe can be explained in about  a minute. The video doing just that is below, followed by the formal recipe.
