Protein-packed Brownies \\ Brownies Protéinés

I love chocolate. I could live off of chocolate… probably. One of my favourite thing to do is add cocoa powder to my morning oatmeal. It feels like a treat, while still being healthy and delicious. Now these brownies are the same way! They are delicious but so guilt-free: oil-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and full ofContinue reading “Protein-packed Brownies \\ Brownies Protéinés”

Dark Chocolate Sorbet

In the winter, I love making myself a thick dark hot chocolate with a nice foam on top. There is something incomparable to being nested in a thick blanket with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. However, when it’s 35C outside, the last thing you want to do is bundle up. Well,Continue reading “Dark Chocolate Sorbet”

Product Review: Mycryo Powder

A few months ago, my mom brought back a bottle of Mycryo powder from a chocolate fair. I had seen this product at the Montreal Vegan Fest, as well as the Salon des Métiers d’Arts, but always thought it was some fancy product that only fancy chefs used. Well, it’s not. At first, I wasContinue reading “Product Review: Mycryo Powder”

Chocolate Covered Strawberries, from scratch

I love chocolate covered strawberries because they are easy to prepare, always look impressive and are perfect for warm weather. I was craving these, but unfortunately, I didn’t have any chocolate in the house. I did however have some cocoa powder and some cocoa butter (go figure!). So, let’s make some chocolate from scratch! HereContinue reading “Chocolate Covered Strawberries, from scratch”

Vegan Chocolate Tiramisu

I have to admit, I only had tiramisu once before going vegan. For some reason, however, I was craving the smooth layers of chocolate cake and cream. So I made some chocolate cake, thick vegan cream, a rum-chocolate dipping liquid, and here you go! Here is what you need for the cake: 120g gluten freeContinue reading “Vegan Chocolate Tiramisu”

Overnight Oats, 3 flavours

In an effort to make my life easier, I’m trying to bring more planned meals into the week. One of the things I’m trying are overnight oats. Now, I really didn’t know if I would feel okay eating oats in the first place as I am gluten intolerant, but I found that Bob’ Red MillContinue reading “Overnight Oats, 3 flavours”

Hazelnut Spread, the sugar-free edition

When I posted my nutella-dupe recipe yesterday, one of the comment I got on Facebook was that refined sugars are bad for you. In my mind I thought that if you were going to eat nutella in the first place, sugar is probably not one of your concerns, or you are at least willing toContinue reading “Hazelnut Spread, the sugar-free edition”

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

A few weeks ago, my amazing sister-in-law suggested that we tried to make our own version of nutella. She really loves animals and has a special spot for primates: nutella and the palm oil it contains was a no-go for her. In case you are suddenly wondering if nutella uses primates in its ingredients, theContinue reading “Chocolate Hazelnut Spread”
