Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry scones

Tea time isn’t complete without flakey, buttery, crispy-on-the-outside and pillowy soft on the inside, scones. Now you might think you said goodbye to these (surprisingly easy-to-make) pastries when you went vegan, but I’m here to tell you that these Blueberry Lemon Scones meet all the above requirements and I defy anyone to call them out Continue Reading …

Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins for Baby

I am very proud of these muffins because they took me about a year of trying to get them just right. I am also proud because my son goes crazy for them. We usually eat them while listening to the song “The muffin man”. Ha ha. The quinoa makes them a great source of protein. The flax is Continue Reading …

I’m not much a sweets person, but this dry and cold weather lately has me craving some stick-to-your-ribs hot cereal to warm my belly. Jay’s stepdad Ralph turned us on to sweet quinoa a while back, so I took it a step further with fruits, ginger and spices, and the result is a delicious and Continue Reading …

Creamy Apricot Chai Smoothie

Apricots, fresh off of our local fruit trees, are everywhere right now! I was fortunate enough to get a big box picked directly off of a friend’s tree in the Okanagan, and froze three big bags for fall and winter. This smoothie not only has all the benefits of these delicious little fruits, including eye Continue Reading …

Healthy Carrot Muffins!

Well I just woke up and when I looked into my fridge I noticed a bag of carrots that were starting to look pretty dried out so I wanted to make use of them ASAP.  I decided to make some “healthy” carrot muffins for breakfast.  I sweetened them with iron and magnesium-rich molasses, didn’t use Continue Reading …

Cinnamon Rolls from [in the oven]

Hey guys, so we realized we’ve been sharing meal time recipe ideas for weeks now but no desserts! I mean, here we are claiming to be decent vegan bakers and haven’t shared a single recipe. Awkward!

I’m not much of a sweet breakfast eater, but I was recently gifted some delicious, real Canadian maple syrup from Salsa Sam, so I decided to switch up my breakfast game.
