• Supercharged Snickers Bars

    As yogis, we all work hard to live as consciously as possible. That includes properly fueling our bodies with nutritious, cruelty-free, foods that are still delicious and satisfying. We’re here to help make that part easy, and we think it’s time to treat yourself! WE found this recipe for Raw vegan Snickers bars with Lee Holmes from Superchargedfood.com, and we can’t wait to try them. Check out her full recipe and give them a try yourself!

    Supercharged Snickers Bars

    Makes: 12 bars

    Ingredients

    Nougat base:

    Caramel:

    Chocolate Topping:

    Method:

    1. Line a 10cm x 20cm tin or tray with baking paper.
    2. In a food processor, pulse the macadamias until they resemble fine crumbs. Add in the coconut cream, coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla and pulse until smooth. Add in the almond meal and Love Your Gut Powder and pulse until just combined.
    3. Spread this mixture into the lined tray and sprinkle over peanuts and sea salt. Place in the freezer for two hours to set.
    4. To make the caramel, stir all ingredients in a bowl until combined. Spread mixture over the peanuts and place back into the freezer for another two hours.
    5. Prepare the chocolate coating by melting ingredients together in a small pot over a low heat. Transfer to a bowl, place in the fridge for 15 minutes to let it thicken slightly.
    6. Remove the bars from the freezer and using large knife, cut into 12 bars.
    7. To cover in chocolate coating, first prepare a rack over a tray to catch any dripping chocolate. Carefully dip bars in the chocolate coating mixture and place on the rack. You want to work quickly here to prevent the bars from melting. This is why it’s important your chocolate mixture isn’t too hot but is still melted and has a liquid consistency. You may wish to work in batches.
    8. Place back into the freezer as soon as possible to set the chocolate. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

  • Vegan Falafels

    These days, with so many resources available on the internet, eating healthy is easier than ever. We love looking for recipes from our favorite vegan foodies all over the web, and this week, we were lucky enough to come across this middle eastern treat courtesy of Natalie Prigoone. So, grab your food processor and a can of chickpeas and let’s get cooking! 

    These cute little falafels were made by my mum. I made the accompanying babganoush and tzadziki . This is when cooking works: Everyone does their little bit and then brings it together for something far greater.

    Falafel recipe

    400g can chickpeas
    1/3 cup organic besan flour
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    1 small onion
    Salt and pepper
    1 tsp ground coriander seeds
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    2 cloves garlic (crushed or use micro plane for a fine grate.

     

    Method

    Hand chop herbs, and onion.

    Drain and rinse chickpeas.

    Blend all ingredients in food processor on the pulse option. You don’t want mush. Keep it a little chunky. Scrape down sides as you go.

    Refrigerate mixture in a bowl for 30 minutes to firm up.

    Roll into small small balls and shallow fry in your favourite oil. Coconut or olive oil work well.

    Cook both sides until golden.

    Serve with salad, pita, babaganoush and tzadziki. Yum.

    NOTE: Reserve the liquid for something else. It’s called Aquafaba and is a great vegan substitute for an egg in a meringue. Many other uses.
