Vegan Hertzoggies

Vegan Hertzoggie is a very popular South African traditional recipe. It was always a dream of mine to recreate this recipe into a more "healthier" version, and even though there is still a decent amount of sugar in it. The vegan meringue and shortcrust base come pretty close to the original and all that sugar don't even matter with the first bite. Its international apricot day, I thought these cookies are the perfect recipe to share! These cookies are making me crave summer and home really badly. They were loved by my husband, our son and some of my friends (they had no clue they were vegan).

Ginger chocolate oat cookies

Ginger chocolate oat cookies, I have been trying to find a name for the subtle spiced cookies. They are a mix between chocolate chip and festive ginger cookies, a phoenix you might call them. They are delightfully light, chewy and sweet. Christmas cookies are stressing me out for real, making beautiful cookies takes a lot of patience and loads of percision that is for sure! I have made two batches and the cookies came out all right, but the frosting is nothing to write home about! That's where the true artist comes out...

Peppermint crisp cups

Peppermint crisp cups are absolutely amazing... These desserts have been a lifesaver this week, just because we have come close to melting. The heat has been crazy this whole week. I made these cups one evening and they were so much enjoyed after we had a barbeque.

Vegan Coconut Milktart

Vegan coconut Milktart is the real deal, I assure you. Can you make this beloved dessert healthy? Yes indeed. It's a traditional dessert that resembles something close to a custard flan. In my house, I try to healthify a few recipes, even though I do love the old favorites just the way they are. I love coconut milk and have a few cans lined in my cupboard to whip up something when the time calls for it.
