Chai pumpkin churros

Chai pumpkin churros are essential when the festive season is here. I know churros more as "dough fills" from my childhood. They are a whole other post by themselves and I'm sure going to get up all nostalgic about them, but for now churros, my friends. Not only do these totally vegan churros taste super delish, coated in sugar and dipped in chocolate, but these churros have two special ingredients. Homemade chai spice and sweet mashed pumpkin. Yes, these are super special churros for a super special time of the year!

Vegan Hertzoggie tart

Vegan Hertzoggie tart has been on my mind for ages. Hertzoggies is one of my absolute favorite South African desserts ever. They usually come in a small cookie form and is enjoyed over tea and chats late afternoon. I certainly love this tart almost as much as the actual cookies. I have made a smaller cookie version too that I will share with you very soon, but for now this delish tart will take over your taste buds.

Pumpkin French toast sticks

Pumpkin french toast sticks are just perfect for international French toast day. They taste amazing. All the infusions of Autumn are there. The hints of gingerbread, the sweetness of the pumpkin and the chocolate sauce are just wonderful. I know I should probably get started on making all those festive recipes, but I am still stuck on pumpkin and fall over here?!

Spelt rye bagels

Spelt rye bagels are a super healthy and quick lunch alternative. These fluffy and nutritious bagels can be made ahead of time and frozen. So whenever the need strikes for a fresh bagel, you can grab one out and toast em. They are especially tasty with some pesto, pickled red onions and some cheese.

Pecan brûléed banana tarts

Pecan brûléed banana tarts are just amazing. I love all the pumpkin and apple pie creations at the moment, but for some reason I just have pecans and beautifully sugar coated banana's on my brain. I want to make a kind of pie one of these day's with my very own pastry ect, but when the craving hit's and you don't have the time for tassels or hassles, these little beauties sure do come in handy.

Fig rye banana bread

Fig rye banana bread is a banana bread lover's dream come true. This bread is dense yet light, moist and so delish with the dried figs hidden in there. I absolutely love this bread and will def make it again, again and again. The spelt and rye flours complement the luscious figs so well. I am still dreaming about this loaf.

Prickly pear tapioca pudding

Prickly pear tapioca pudding is utterly amazing whether you decide to have it for breakfast or dessert. I actually ate this bowl of tapioca pudding with my son for breakfast and there was no complaining. It is light and subtly sweetened with juicy hints of prickly pear. I remember we ate these things so much as kids, all sliced up and cold from the fridge. My mother always said we shouldn't eat too much, but they were just too delish. Now I love to use these beauties in savory and sweet dishes.

Sweet potato waffles

Sweet potato waffles have never come at a better time. This weekend, I am home alone once again and the only thing that can feul me with the toddler filled days are of course waffles. Not any old waffle will do. Only sweet potato waffles can do the trick. I went to the farmers' market this morning and I had to time it pretty nicely because sprinting through has to come with a game plan. Snacks, water and a list of to buy's. All the necessities led to a pretty smooth morning and a much-needed nap time afterwards (for the both of us btw).

No knead Zucchini bread

No knead Zucchini bread is such an amazing bread recipe to try when you are pressed for time or when you just want to make some freshly baked bread in a jiffy. I made this for us one evening when we were planning to have a BBQ. It took me around a half an hour to prepare everything and by the time the BBQ was ready, the bread was ready to be eaten.

Fluffy cinnamon pancakes

Fluffy cinnamon pancakes are perfect for a quick Sunday brunch. I always make a big batch of pancakes so I can stow some in my freezer ad a breakfast option or a snack for my little munchkin. He is quite a picky eater when it comes to breakfast and refuses to eat oats, chia pudding, and even smoothies. Porridge? No way. See what I'm dealing with here?
