This delicious recipe came over from Italy with my Grandmother. I changed some of the ingredients to reduce the amount of fat. It's a complete meal with three stuffed crepes only 610 calories and 19.6 grams of fat.
Time for a break? These gluten free, vegan gingerbread biscotti are crunchy, spicy and perfect with a cuppa. The dough is a breeze to work with and is in no way gritty thanks to the use of tenderizing pineapple juice and my Artisanal GF Flour.
Nothin' better than a nice warm bowl of homemade, vegan Habitant soup! Comfort food plus... And it's both good for you and your wallet to boot!
It's an unusual combination: 70% cocoa chocolate, local honey and sour homegrown rhubarb, but I promise you the sweet-tart flavours willing have you licking the spoon!
Crunchy Olive and Rosemary Grissini are 100% dunkable treats packed with flavour from fresh rosemary, EVOO and sundried black olives. All this, and they're gluten free to boot!
A few vegan sweet potato biscotti go perfectly with afternoon tea. These are 75% whole grain and studded with pecans and dried cranberries.
Norwegian Kakemenn are soft sugar cookies that aren't too sweet - perfect for decorating with icing!
These red wine and dark chocolate cookies are a socially acceptable, gluten free and vegan way to indulge in a tipple at work!
I love the rich, sweet-savoury blend of vinegars, port and Worcestershire in this steak sauce... Wait, forget steak. This would rock on potatoes, or a piece of cardboard for that matter! Adapted slightly from http://www.chatelaine.com/recipe/stovetop-
A hint of cashew butter brings a rich body to this chocolatey drink spiked with a few drops of concentrated chocolate-hazelnut flavouring
If you're like my mom, you adore the buttery, toasted pecans in the classic dessert, but not the cloying sweetness! My granola still keeps a hint of the golden syrup flavour, with the power of wheat germ, rolled oats and flaked quinoa for a delicious yoghurt topper!
Home roasted pumpkin puree combines with rich cream, butter and spices for a luxurious, chewy caramel perfect for the holidays! I made mine vegan with coconut milk and Earth Balance, but my recipe offers the option for the dairy-philes out there!
Recipe slightly adapted from Vegan Chocolate by Fran Costigan. Stevia sweetened dark chocolate, orange juice and zest and a spoonful of tahini meld into to-die-for spheres of candy rolled in sesame seeds for extra texture.
Chocolate comes in four forms here - cocoa, cacao nibs, chocolate candy peanuts and chocolate chips! Sour cream and chia seeds turn this gluten free, eggless loaf cake into almost baked fudge in consistency, while quinoa flour and candy-coated peanuts add a rich nuttiness.
Yield: Appx 66 4" cookies

Great sweet treat
These slice and bake cookies are tender, crumbly and rich - their tiny size is misleading! Rolled oats and dark brown sugar bring a great earthiness to the dough, and the bittersweet chocolate is a refreshing change to your usual cookie!
A recipe just slightly tweaked from the ever-generous and kind Marye from Baking Delights (http://www.blisstree.com/bakingdelights/c
