Pistachio Rapsberry Muffins

This fab muffin remind me of my childhood when my favorite ice cream flavor was pistachio on pistachio on pistachio :).

It’s a quick and affordable recipe, doesn’t need dairy or eggs, and carries less sugar than usual muffin recipes, due to the rich flavor of almond extract.

I tell you that rich pistachio flavor mixed with rapsberries is the best combo!!

Makes about 8-10 muffins

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
  • 1 pistachio pudding, I used Sojasun but this is not sponsored, just really love the stuff! If you want to try it and love pistachio really don’t hesitate, I’ve been eating this stuff since 3 years now and it really never fails!! It’ll add extra flavor, but you can definitely choose another one or even swap for 1 flaxseed vegan egg, 1/2 cup apple sauce, or 1 mashed banana, the green pistachio color will come from the spinach and the main pistachio flavor will come from the almond extract 😉
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup pistachios unsalted, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries


Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C, line 8-10 standard-size muffin cups.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Blend together the melted coconut oil, sugar, pistachio pudding, spinach, soymilk and almond extract until smooth. If coconut oil begins to solidify because others ingredients are cold, simply pop in the microwave for a few seconds.
  4. Add wet to dry ingredient, combine. Add half of frozen raspberries, half of pistachios, gently combine again so the raspberries don’t tint the batter pink.
  5. Fill batter into the muffin cups. Top with the rest of chopped pistachios and raspberries.
  6. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean.
  7. Enjoy! It’s delicious by itself but with a cup of hot cocoa, it’ll be heaven!

Raw vegan caramel slice

raw caramel slice

First time I was searching the web about these caramel slice I thought they were insane and unhealthy. But boy I was so wrong… because they sure are mother nature’s treats and you shouldn’t feel any guiltiness devouring one of those, or two, or three!!!

________________________

La première fois que j’ai trouvé sur le web, des images de ces caramel slice, j’ai tout de suite pensé qu’elles était démentes et très mauvaises pour la santé. Mais je me trompais sur toute la ligne!!! Parce que tout les ingrédients sont naturels, et vous ne devriez pas vous sentir coupables en en dévorant une, ou deux, ou trois !!!

Valentine’s day Red Velvet Brownies (for about 9 brownies)

Ingredients

1 mashed banana
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup cooked beet, mashed
2 tsp natural, red food coloring (like beetroot powder)
2 tsp vanilla powder (just simple vanilla reduced in powder)
4 tsp coconut oil melted
3/4 cup cane sugar, or coconut sugar
1 cup rice flour
1 cup all purpose flour (or coconut flour, for a GF option)
1 to 3 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (210°c) and line a brownie pan with parchment paper

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the banana and almond milk. Whisk in the beet puree, food coloring, extracts vanilla powder and sugar.

3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the rice flour, all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

4. Quickly stir the coconut oil into the wet ingredients then dump the dry ingredients on top, add the cocoa powder spoon by spoon you may need only one to get the red a little more profound, if not add another one, carefully, you don’t want your red to turn just brown, then fold together well (batter will be thick)

5. Scoop batter into the prepared pan and spread/flatten. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the surface springs back when tapped. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely. Slice and serve!
