raspberry tart with chickpea coconut crust

eating with S.O.L.E.

g;uten free tart : raspberry chickpea coconut

I have been really enjoying baking with chickpea flour over the past few weeks. It’s dense and almost nutty tasting and it blends nicely with all kinds of other flours. Yesterday we picked the last of the very deep dark ripe raspberries of the season and had to put them to work immediately so I set out to bake a gluten free dairy free tart made in the lazy crumble top fashion of old school date bars (love this 2 step technique) The dough is a blend of chickpea flour / brown rice flour / coconut / coconut oil / and cane sugar used on the bottom and again on the top with a thick layer of smooshed freshly picked berries and some coconut chips.

Weekend Brunch Round 27: Chocolate Cherry Bomb Muffins

The Vegan Cookbook Aficionado

After I had made all that cherry compote my original instinct was to make muffins; that seemed pretty boring so instead I ended up making something way better then muffins! But even after the braided bread was done, I still had enough leftover to go back to my original idea. I should probably cut muffins some slack, whenever I eat muffins I tend to go with the whole-grain, low-fat, low-sugar, blah blah healthy blah , type muffins, so when I think of muffin recipes, they don’t exactly induce excitement. But sometimes you don’t want a healthy muffin, sometimes you want one of those bakery-style muffins that’s placed on a shelf next to the cookies and donuts. You know the kind, the ones that are chock full of chocolate, sugar and all that other not-so-healthy stuff, and that’s exactly what these are.

Original Edensoy Extra Soymilk Review & Giveaway Announcement

Healthified Living

*****THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED******

On my trip to the Eden Store, I purchased 3 different kinds of their soy milks. I am really impressed by the way that they make their soy milk, and they are the ONLY company whose soy milks I will even purchase. They do not use the toxic chemical hexane to process their soy milk with, as all other companies (to my knowledge) do. They also use an older method that takes more time to make their soy milks with, which is what proves to me that they truly care about their consumers, and the end result of their products. That’s very hard to find in a business, in today’s day and age!

The Original Edensoy Extra was my favorite out of all 3. I used it in cereal, for drinking straight up, and for making smoothies. I like that it has way less sugar in…
