Gooey Black Bean Brownies

These black bean brownies really hit the spot when you craving something chocolatey. It sounds a bit weird mixing black beans into your brownies but when they’re blended with the coconut cream and cacao powder they make the most indulgent gooey brownie. Who wouldn’t love that? The black beans give you an extra boost of fibre, protein and minerals like iron and copper. These brownies are great on there own but I love to finish them off with a creamy tahini and chocolate frosting. Black Bean Brownies Makes 8 -10 brownies Ingredients For the brownies 2 cups of black beans 1/2 cup of  natural coconut cream, from a can 3/4 cup cacao powder 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, soaked in 6 tablespoons of water 1/4 cup of coconut sugar or maple syrup 1 teaspoon of vanilla pinch of salt For the frosting 2 tablespoons of tahini, coconut cream and cacao powder 1 tablespoon of coconut oil coconut sugar to taste Method Frist get your can of natural coconut cream …

Magic Mousse Jars

This dessert is such a winner! Not only is it visually stunning it’s deceptively easy to make. Unlike a traditional mousse made using eggs, cream and sugar this magic mousse is 100% vegan and is made using avocado, silken tofu and coconut yoghurt as the base. Stay with me! I know this combination of ingredients aren’t obvious choices for a dessert but when they are blended with rich melted dark chocolate, smooth salty peanut butter and juicy raspberries they transform into the most deliciously decadent mousse. The really fun part is the layers. Each mousse is individually layered in a jar then topped off with more raspberries, shavings of chocolate and cacao nibs. So each time you dip your spoon in you get a different combination of flavours and textures. This is the perfect dessert to make for your special someone, yourself or make ahead for a dinner party when you want to wow your guests.

Choc Cherry Power Bars

If you looking for an easy sweet treat to make then these are the bars for you! They are essentially a raw ball but pressed into a bar shape. You simply blend everything together and then let the bars firm up in the freezer then drizzle with dark chocolate. I know they sound insanely delicious! I’ve given the classic choc cherry flavour combo a healthy twist and used raw cacao and sour dried cherries instead. the cacao makes these bars taste really indulgent. They are packed out with almonds, hazelnuts and oats so you get all of your good fats, protein and fibre, which also makes them the perfect sweet snack for after a workout. I love to whip up a big batch of these and them store in the freezer so I have a healthy snack on hand when I get a sweet craving. TIP: If your allergic to nuts you can easily swap out the almonds and hazelnuts for sunflower, pumpkin or hemp seeds. Choc Cherry Power Bars Makes about 16 bars     Prep/cook …
