Honey & Cherry Cornbread

I am into cherries. Cherries together with plums were in the last couple of weeks my one and the only fruit I baked with. Somehow they always went really well with spiced, slightly warming and comforting cakes and pastries that I baked since the beginning of this fall. I like to keep things simple and…

Banana Power Bites

This cake always brings back memories of when I lived in Nepal. I used to bake it once a month for a regular trail-race competition I used to participate in. Each runner in the competition got a piece of my Banana Power Bite to energize before the long run. One thing to real quick mention here…

Silken Tofu Mousse

As always, the simplest things are usually the best one, and frankly, this is so far my favorite non-baked vegan dessert of all. Creamy and rich yet light and delicate, sweetened just a little to appreciate the flavor of ingredients like Bourbon Vanilla and dark chocolate. This dessert is texture-wise something between the mousse and creamy custard, having…

Vegan Koka Cookies

Koka Cookies or perhaps Koka Biscuits? They are full of rich cacao powder, crispy on the outside, and because of the banana, soft and chewy-ish in the center. Cookies contain just a small amount of coconut sugar and besides being vegan, they are naturally gluten-free as well. They taste best with a cup of dark…

Mini Pavlovas

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been teaching classes on traditional Eastern European pastries where I only use egg yolks. Hence, ten egg whites in my fridge were getting older and older as I was trying to figure out what delicious treat they could turn into. Chocolate mousse did not sound very exciting to…

Gluten-Free Blondies with Nuts and White Chocolate

Delicate and soft blond sisters of brownies. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Packed with fiber, healthy fats, and a variety of flavors. Lemon gives them a great, refreshing kick, coconut flour locks moisture inside and nuts and white chocolate provide a crispy sensation. With this recipe, I got inspired by my new…

Nut’s Madness (My fake Snickers)​

This nut & chocolate bar is a great treat when you crave something small and satisfying. Unlike most of the commercial chocolate bars, this one is (almost) sugar-free and contains very nutritious ingredients that benefit your body and your mind. Nuts containing healthy fats, dark chocolate containing polyphenols, anti-inflammatory cinnamon, and oats rich in fiber…

Gluten-Free Walnut, Cherry & Chocolate Cake

This is an ultimate luscious and luxury cake great for any occasion. I have to admit that this cake does not belong to the category of simple and fast prepared recipes. I recommend to bake this cake when you have more time, you are not in a rush and when you want to prepare something…

Chia Seed Coconut Pudding

Have you ever heard of chia seeds? If yes, then you probably know what kind of superfood they are and that you can benefit from eating them regularly.  If not, then it’s time to introduce you to those nutritious (and good-looking) seeds. Chia seeds’ popularity boosted rapidly in the last couple of years. You can get them…
