Peanut Butter Fudge Slice

This is the result of some serious procrastinating… I have been doing anything but study lately. Cleaning the toilet has been more appealing.  Today I had a huge craving for peanut butter and wanted to make something with ingredients I already had in the cupboard.  In Julia and Libby’s Wholefood Kitchen we have an incredible Peanut Butter Cheesecake and I took inspo from that recipe, but simplified it.  To cater to people with certain food intollerances I have kept this recipe vegan, dairy free and gluten free.  This slice is creamy, sweet, decadent, ever so peanut buttery and DELICIOUS! I hope you love it!

Peanut Butter Fudge

Since I can remember I have loved fudge, usually the kind with half a kilo of white or brown sugar in it, usually caramel flavoured (condensed milk, yum) and more often than not I am unable to just have one piece.  Fudge is my vice.  In my ongoing quest to create clean vegan sweets it has lead me to what I would say is my favourite recipe to date.  Just 3 ingredients, how simple can you get? While this fudge contains no dairy, gluten, refined sugar or additives and a whole lot of good fats,  please don’t eat it all at once. Recently I was gifted 5 jars of peanut butter, it was a good day when that delivery arrived.  Lib and I are huge fans of PB, we have used it here and here and here.  If you are allergic, do not worry, you can replace the PB in…

Peanut Butter and Cacao Brownie

Chocolate and peanut butter are two foods that taste incredible when combined.  These decadent, chewy peanut butter and cacao brownies are the perfect guilt free comfort food. The peanut butter makes the brownie creamy and rich and the cacao nibs gives it a crunchy texture. This is such a simple recipe to follow and can be easily adapted by adding nuts, shredded coconut, dried fruit and white chocolate bits. I served my brownies with plain yogurt and they also taste great eaten on their own, they are moist so do not worry if you do not have yoghurt. *Gluten Free Ingredients 2 eggs 3/4 cup of peanut butter. I used 100% NUTZ Crunchy Peanut Butter 1/2 cup plain yogurt 3/4 cup of coconut sugar 1/2 cup oats 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1/4 cup of cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips 3/4 cup of raw cacao powder or cocoa powder 1 teaspoon of…

Avocado and Coconut Smoothie

This green smoothie contains three of my favorite high quality fats which are Avocado, Coconut Oil and Peanut Butter. Fat is one of the three basic macronutrients (proteins, fats, carbohydrates) that your body needs to survive. It has many special roles from providing superior long lasting energy to supporting the development of hormones. Fat is needed for protecting vital organs, it’s also required for assimilating the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. Your cell membranes are made from fat.  The right balance of healthy fat allows your body to create strong but flexible cell membranes that can receive nutrients and excrete wastes efficiently. Certain high quality fats are also able to reduce cholesterol levels and aid in detoxification. The avocado gives it a fluffy and creamy texture without having to use any dairy. I sprinkled some desiccated coconut over the top of the smoothie. Enjoy! Ingredients 1 Avocado…

Kumara and Peanut Butter Rostis

Kumara and Peanut Butter Rostis These kumara and peanut butter rostis make the perfect vegetarian meal for winter.  The rostis are full of beautiful flavours from the garlic, ginger, orange zest, chilli and peanut butter. I chose to bake the rostis instead of frying them which I usually do to make them healthier. They turn out golden and crispy and are amazing served with hummus or avocado. The rostis can be served as a snack or used in meal as an alternative to meat. Ingredients     8 rostis 3 medium sized kumaras 2 tbsp peanut butter (If you want it extra crunchy I would use 4 tbsp) 2 tbsp tamari (healthier alternative to soy sauce) 2 garlic cloves – crushed 1/2 tsp ground ginger or 1 tsp freshly grated ginger 1 tsp chilli flakes zest of 1 orange 1/2 cup of chopped coriander and/or parsley 1/2 gluten free flour -…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

These really don’t need an introduction – chocolate plus peanut butter equals heaven in your mouth. As the ingredients are all natural it’s safe to say that they are a healthier alternative to processed sugary treats, and with Easter coming up why not make these for the family or work colleagues as cruelty free easter gift? These are perfect for anyone who is lactose intolerant, vegan, refined sugar free or if you’re looking for a guilt free treat. There are only 5 ingredients in these cups and I find that the better quality the ingredients the nicer tasting cups you will get. Makes 12 cups. INGREDIENTS for the peanut butter bottoms: 1 cup natural peanut butter (no added sugar, salt) 1 Tbsp organic maple syrup 3 Tbsp organic coconut oil (melted) for the chocolate top: 1/2 cup raw cacao powder 1 Tbsp organic maple syrup 1/3 cup organic coconut oil (melted)…

Peanut Butter Protein Slice

On my way home from Uni yesterday I had a peanut butter craving, so got home, looked at what food was in the cupboard that I could possibly use to make some sort of peanut butter creation.  Keep it simple is one of my motto’s – Make something substantial and somehow combine protein powder without making the whole thing taste like cardboard. The recipe can easily tweaked here and there to suit your own taste.  For example rice milk if you don’t drink almond, honey if you don’t like maple syrup and adding in stevia if you have a big sweet tooth.  Make it for yourself and let me know your thoughts. Makes 15 – 20 pieces, depending on what size you cut them. Ingredients: 1 cup almond milk 2 Tbsp organic maple syrup 1 cup peanut butter (it’s best to use a good quality peanut butter that only contains peanuts…
