Nutty Energy Bites
These energy bites are ridiculousy easy to make! Simply mix all ingredients in one bowl, place drops on a baking tray and pop them in the oven. Ingredients can be easily substituted as the wet/dry ratio doesn't matter as much with this recipe. Using a generous amount of cocoa powder adds a nice chocolatey taste without the sugar or guilt found in chocolate.
Yummy Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies
This micro-batch was my first time baking with tahini and is great vegan alternative to the classic chocolate chip cookie. The batter was very oily, however the cookies came out of the oven moist, chewy and not at all greasy
Choco Coco Bites
The batch shown here was made on March 19th, and was my first 'micro-batch' experiment. Feel free to double up the recipe, as we finished these mini cookies in less than 24 hours...
Sweet Potato Brownies
This Easter weekend we exchanged our fondest Easter memories and traditions which consisted of chocolate eggs and the occaisonal chocolate bunny. This inspired me to bake, for the first time ever, a batch of creamy chocolate brownies...
Inspired to bake...
As we enter our second month of self-isolation, my co-isolation buddy Amit and I find ourselves inspired to bake, not as a way to pass the time, rather as a constructive way to nourish our souls. We both enjoyed indulging in impromptu trips to the bakery to satisfy our sweet cravings, however with most bakeshops closed an our biweekly outings limited exclusively to the grocery store to stock our fridge with only the essentials - we've turned to home baking as a refuge, saviour and fun way to express our creativity... Our new reality has resulted in a significant increase in snacking and decrease in physical activity, motivating me even more to create treats that are healthy (no refined sugar, lower in carbs, higher in protein) to avoid the corona nineteen (think freshmen fifteen...). The recipes here do not provide comprehensive step-by-step instructions or perfectly filtered pictures, rather serve as a placeholder for ingredients proportions and combinations for some of my inspired creations. Most of them will likely be micro-portions, as I like to experiment with small batches in the toaster oven to help save on costs and reduce disappointment if a batch doesn't hold up. These posts are simply intended to be a starting place...Happy Baking!
