Chocolate bliss balls made with hazelnuts are delicious in their own right. But toast or roast those hazelnuts first and you get something totally irresistible. Roasted hazelnut bliss balls are the perfect healthy treat for Veganuary or banishing those winter blues.
These vegan peanut butter banana muffins are so quick and easy to make that they’re the perfect bake for when you’re in a hurry or unexpected guests arrive.

As a bonus, you’ll also find a gluten-free almond butter version later in the post.
If you like a quick and easy spread that’s full of umami flavours and packed with goodness, this mushroom pâté with walnuts and butter beans might be for you. It’s easy to make, delicious for vegetarians and great for vegans too.
Oh I do love my Froothie blender. It makes such beautifully smooth sauces and has encouraged me to be so much more adventurous than I used to be. Vegan cheese sauce has been on my radar for a couple of years now. Last month, I finally got around to making some. This cheesy cashew nut sauce really is a revelation and I’ll be making it a regular part of my repertoire.
A delicious early summer green spread or dip. Serve this simple minted broad bean spread with crusty bread, toast or crudités. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan.
Delicious fudgy chocolate brownies with a hint of coffee and a swirl of unctuous almond nut butter. Whilst you couldn’t call these coffee brownies good for you, the ingredients used are healthier than your average brownie.
Pancakes are always a treat, but I have a particularly soft spot for savoury pancakes. My dinner time treat, when I was a child, was wholemeal pancakes with cheese sauce – utter bliss.

Who likes a crumbly cookie? For those that do, these vegan vanilla almond cookies are just that. They’re made with ground almonds and wholemeal spelt flour and flavoured with vanilla. Not too sweet, but perfect with a cup of tea.

Since acquiring a decent blender, we’ve become complete smoothie converts. We have them for breakfast more often than not. It’s a great way to use our kefir and other healthful ingredients. However, it wasn’t until BRITA asked me if I’d like to make one of their recipes and try out their new water filter jug, that I made a kefir-free smoothie. This dairy free ginger green goddess smoothie turned out to be an utter delight.
