teff banana muffins. vegan. gluten free. one bowl.

one bowl teff banana muffins

Ah, teff. You’re a lifesaver. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to make teff banana muffins today. I wouldn’t have had healthy uni snacks for the week and had to spend big on campus instead. Not only did you avert an epic kitchen and budget crisis, you also pack a punch with your incredible

gf, vegan turmeric banana bread. earthy undertones offset by the sweetness of banana.

turmeric banana bread to boost immunity

In an epic turn of events, my life is now heading in a different direction. I moved from the small, coastal town of Western Australia where I spent my entire childhood to Sydney. From 40,000 to over 4 million. Even now, I’m sort of banging my head against the wall for what could become the

vegan, gluten free, turmeric infused deliciousness - chocolate chip turmeric cookies

chocolate chip turmeric cookies + a word on anxiety

I don’t have much to say in this post, as opposed to my last one where I described my decisions behind adopting a vegan lifestyle. That doesn’t make it a rant. It’s not a rant. It WASN’T a rant, okay? First, read the post. Then decide. I’m sharing my views, not forcing them on you.

vegan banana date slice - also gluten free!

vegan banana date slice

Let’s talk vegan. That is, vegan banana date slice.  But first, just vegan. It’s now been three months since I decided to make the switch to a plant based lifestyle. It’s a bit of a buzzword, ‘plant based’. Truthfully though, I’m a little scared of revealing to people that I am now fully vegan, since

gluten free vegan espresso and teff christmas cookies

espresso and teff christmas cookies // gf, vegan

Something festive this way comes.  A little cinnamon there, a pinch of nutmeg there and delicious goodness everywhere. Including, but not limited to, my healthier take on gingerbread, made without refined sugars, refined flours, dairy, gluten or eggs. Not only are these espresso and teff christmas cookies ideal for dunking in a christmas morning cuppa,

rhubarb banana cake

rhubarb banana cake + cashew icing // gf, vegan

I’ve had a very, very busy life lately. Studying my soul away, graduating from high school and completing my final exams hasn’t left a lot of time for baking, blogging and social media-ing. Now, finally, I have had a free weekend to bake – after working every saturday for the past few months. I also

a teaser: anzac biscuits (vegan + gf) with greetings from austria

Well hello beware the beans followers/lovers/obsessed ones & hello world! Greetings from a (slightly 😉 ) smaller country than Australia, placed in the center of europe: Austria. My names Lara, a 17 year old from Vienna, and  if you have seen Rosie’s previous post you know what is going on. If not: We are doing a

dark chocolate zucchini brownie muffins // gluten free, vegan

dark chocolate zucchini brownie muffins // gluten free, vegan

This isn’t a new recipe. I guess it’s not really an old recipe either. It would be more appropriate to say it’s a recycled recipe. This is a revisited and improved recipe of an older post for vegan chocolate muffins.  So that tired (and I’ll admit, imperfect) muffin recipe has been upgraded and replaced by this one for dark chocolate

Roast Pumpkin Scones {Gluten Free}

roast pumpkin scones // gf, vegan

My search for the perfect gluten free scone was a long one. I knew what I didn’t want – a scone-shaped brick that crumbled away the very second you even thought about slathering it with jam. I shuddered at the thought that I would never be able to smother a scone in sweet strawberry conserve

Giant Pecan Ginger Crisps {Gluten Free, Vegan}

giant pecan ginger crisps // gluten free, vegan

*Insert witty opening statement here* I’ve been away for a while… oops. I was just thawing after the sudden onset of winter.  Kidding. I had exams. Ew. But I believe I’ve more than made up for my absence by bringing to you today a recipe for the infamous ginger biscuit: the giant gingersnap. Only better, because

Gluten Free Chocolate Ganache Filled Cinnamon Cupcakes

chocolate ganache filled cinnamon cupcakes // gluten free

Baking is my kind of therapy. A peaceful silence settling into the kitchen, broken only by music on the radio – yes, we have a radio, and it plays old school tunes because mum picks the channel – the hum of the oven and the gentle whir of the fan. Outside, Joey our dog happily

Double Decker Chocolate Pumpkin Brownie Bars - gluten and dairy free

double decker chocolate pumpkin brownie bars // gluten free, dairy free

Today’s recipe might seem mildly insane because of it’s insanely long title, so I thought we’d take it step by step: Double decker. Well, that’s because there’s two layers of each flavour to make these chocolate pumpkin brownie bars doubly delicious. Chocolate. So no, these actually don’t contain any chocolate… (sorry!) I used raw cacao instead.

fodmap friendly fruitless hot cross buns // gluten free

Easter is a bit of a conundrum for me. There is a massive lead up: storefronts are hung with pastel streamers and felted rabbit’s ears rest atop the heads of bored sales staff. People flock to the shops to buy overpriced chocolates and overpriced spiced buns. The rationale behind the drastic overpricing of these holidays

Lavender Shortbread Sandwiches with Blueberry Buttercream

lavender shortbread sandwiches // gluten free

I crave spring. Let’s face it, everybody welcomes summer with open arms, ready for the sunny days by the beach, gentle waves lapping at toenails painted in pastel shades, clear cornflower-blue skies overhead. Perhaps soft cotton caresses your back, or is stashed past the tide line, fading in the sand, bathers the attire of choice

gluten free vegan wagon wheels

Have you ever catered for a party? And by catered I mean cooking for a large gathering of people, mostly strangers, with everything made from scratch? As of recently, I have. I don’t recommend it. It’s stressful, it’s exhausting. But it’s also exhilarating. And, oddly rewarding. When my parents decided to hold a party in

Avocado Banana Bread

avocado banana bread + streusel // gluten free, dairy free

Lately, I’ve been delving into the vague areas of life. How to add a custom header to an incompatible blog; how to perfect gluten free pastry; how to recover from exam stress. Suitable breakfast foods. Now, listing all those foods is no mean feat. In fact, I am not lying when I say I never have the

coconut and almond whole orange cake // gluten free, dairy free

There are a few things that I have, and always will, associate with the onset of summer. Even though it’s not quite here yet, a week of very hot days, blistering winds, and salt-crusted skin post-swim, have made me believe that spring is officially cactus. The scent of citrus fills the air, and coconut and tropical
