Trail Mix Energy Bites

Summer is approaching and I'm getting more and more motivated to create new fresh vegan recipes. Last week, I received my first Munch Better snack box in the mail and with it came a variety of yummy treats that I've never tried before. Some of these products inspired me to create new recipes, this recipe in particular being one of my first. I used the Mike & Mike's Organics Goji Sport Mix to make these delicious energy bites! I'm so pleased with the turn out, they are the perfect bite-size pick me up!

Vegan Nut-Free Cheese Sauce

I stumbled upon a homemade cheese recipe video on youtube by Cooking with Plants. It seemed too easy and too good to be I had to try it for myself. I didn't have any agar agar powder on hand, the thickening and solidifying agent needed to make vegan cheese (it's a vegan substitute for gelatine) so I decided to skip that step and make a nice cheese sauce. I couldn't believe the flavour and texture of this sauce! I used this sauce to make mac and cheese, a mexican salad and some nachos!

Pizza Dough: 3 Ways

One of our favourite things to do is host pizza parties! We use either white or wheat bread flour for our classic dough recipe. This time, we decided to experiment with our dough, using the same base recipe but changing up the types of flour.  We went to Bulkbarn, browsed the aisles and picked up three varieties of organic sprouted flour. All three pizzas were delicious! Here is a more in-depth review of each type of dough. Scroll at to the bottom of the page to find the standard recipe!

Salted Caramel Date Sauce

This next recipe is extremely simple and will knock your socks off! Caramel sauce made from only dates and water, how can that possibly taste good may you ask. My non-date loving friends can attest to this sauce's deliciousness. We created this recipe when making our Healthy Chocolate Torte as well as our Healthy Apple Crisp. it adds just the perfect amount of sweetness and caramel goodness. Give it a try! We're sure you wont be disappointed!!
