-> Seed and nut date balls <-
I blended walnuts, almonds, pepitas, chia seeds, pecans and flax seeds in a food processor.
I separately blended the dates, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, honey, cinnamon and almond butter.
I then blended it all together until mixed, rolled into balls, placed on a tray and set in the fridge.
They are a perfect snack with loads of nutritional value! Packed with protein, fibre, iron, potassium, calcium..

Chocolate vegan fudge!
Orange and poppy seed buckwheat pancakes with maple-cinnamon cashew cream and orange-lemon chia seed sauce.
- 1 1/4 cups buckwheat flour
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 small oranges (juiced)
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 1 tbsp baking soda
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/4 cup of dates
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- 5 drops Stevia (optional)
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend all wet ingredients in a blender or food processor. Add wet mixture to bowl and mix together thoroughly until a nice batter is formed. Add more milk or flour to thin or thicken the batter as needed. Heat fry pan, pop some vegan butter into the pan and cook away!
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked for 2- 8 hours)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Water (As much or as little depending on desired consistency)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add extra maple for a sweeter cream.
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 lemon (juiced)
- 1 orange (juiced)
- 1 tbsp orange peel.
In a bowl, combine the juice and chia seeds and mix. Finely chop up some orange peel and add to the mixture. Stir a few more times and you will notice it thickening. Cover and put into the fridge to set (preferably over night).
I served my delicious, fluffy pancakes with my cashew cream, chia sauce, a drizzle of lemon juice, a dusting of cinnamon, a sprinkle of poppy seeds and some raspberries. The combination of flavours was absolutely amazing. Definitely making this one again! :) Enjoy!
