Recipe: No-Bake Blueberry Cake

with one comment

No-Bake-Yogurt-Blueberry-Cake-by-Anna-Brones-2-670x456

Did you know that if you mix honey and yogurt you can make a super simple frozen cake? Like ice cream cake, except way better for you.

I made this last summer and recently threw it together with a batch of blueberries that I had on hand. It’s the perfect cold summer treat. The crust is flourless too; made with almonds and hazelnuts, and a dash of whiskey for those who dare.

Make These Orange Chili Chocolate Tarts

Orange Chili Chocolate Tarts by Anna Brones

Pretty proud of this recipe I just did over on Foodie Underground. A vegan chocolate ganache filling, spiced up with chili and dried orange peel, and poured into a gluten-free almond crust.

And yes, you can make them in the form of hearts. If you’re into that kind of thing, or if you need a fun Valentine’s Day recipe that isn’t full of processed ingredients and tons of sugar.

Recipe: Coconut Chia Pudding with Raspberries and Chocolate

with 3 comments

I have a chia seed obsession. I have been known to put them in smoothies, and mixed with water and a little lemon juice, it’s they make for a great wake up drink. But using them in a dessert? Even better.

Recipe: Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Sea Salt

with 7 comments

Sometimes you need a decadent recipe that you can make in less than twenty minutes. This one is it.

As we all know, there is no better combination than dark chocolate and sea salt. Made with avocados, the mousse is also vegan, but serve it to your non vegan friends and they’ll be so sold on the creamy chocolatey goodness that they’ll never notice the difference. You’ll get points for a posh dessert and no one will ever know that you made it in the frazzled half an hour that you had between your last work meeting and your dinner party.

Recipe: Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

leave a comment »

Time is of the essence when I cook; the easier the better. Which is why I am all for recipes that require minimal ingredients and prep time. Enter these peanut butter cookies which are so easy it’s almost stupid.

Recipe: Banana Avocado Bread with Flaxseeds

leave a comment »

Sometimes it’s worth going a little over the top with the healthy ingredients. Which is why when I was challenged to revamp a classic family recipe for banana bread I turned to avocado.

And of course it’s best consumed warm and topped with freshly made chocolate hazelnut spread.
