#glutenfreebaking theme 30th October 2014.

Hello again! I hope you are well? If you are in the UK you will be well aware of the changing seasons! What happened!? T shirts on still, summer clothes still being worn and then oof… over night it was so cold! I’m going to complain…  ;o)

Anyway, lets have a look at some belly hugging recipes. That will surely put a smile on your face. the theme was #glutenfree baking. It was a slower night but we had some amazing recipes never the less! For this recipe round up, we are including Oats. You, as an allergy sufferer know what levels of possible cross contamination you have tolerate. It seems sensible to cater for all possibilities. This is a lovely #blog post from @Yogivegetarian about #glutenfree flours that they use.

Lets start with a recipe shared by our new friends @Spiceduk for their very own Oat and raisin cookies! Very nice!

Oat & Raisin Cookies

150g Gluten-Free Oats
150g Light Brown Sugar
150g Raisins
130g Margarine
90g Gluten-Free Plain Flour
90ml Unsweetened Soya Milk
1 tsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/190 degrees Celsius.
2. In a bowl, combine the oats, sugar, raisins, flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
3. Melt the margarine on a low heat and, in a separate bowl, combine with the soya milk and vanilla extract.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
5. Bake in 2 batches of 10 cookies on a silicone baking sheet for about 12 minutes. If the cookies fall apart when you try to remove them from the sheet, put them back in the oven for another minute or so.
6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool.
7. Enjoy!

I found this amazing recipe from @Ohsheglows. Gooey Pumpkin spice Latte Chocolate pudding sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it! Here is another one, this time it’s one bowl double chocolate chunk cookies. Yum! These #glutenfree cinnamon buns look rather tempting also! Or a lovely #apple #bread with #raisins and #pecans. Yum… sweet potato brownies! Lemony Vanilla cupcakes anyone?

How about a #blackbean #brownie as shared by #veganstella!

Thank you to @Fettlevegan for sharing this gorgeous looking recipe for Deep Dish #apple cinnamon skillet cake. Nom nom nom..I’m a big cinnamon fan.  This #Pecan studded #banana bread also sounds rather special! Or a savoury dish? Spicy red and black pepper cornbread. lovely! Dark #chocolate #rosemary cookies look divine!

This is another lovely suggestion from @VeganStella. #Polenta cake. Yummy!


Just look at this shared by @sortasausageYUM #GF Twix recipe! Oh my days… @sentientchef shared this awesomely named Fig-a-licious tart with us.  Here is a savoury idea. Turmeric and sweet potato #falafels.

Thank you to @apriltui for some lovely suggestions. Date scones look very yummy. As do these oat and raisin cookies. One of my favourite ingredients in this recipe Buckwheat and Oat pancakes. Or #banana #oat and #date #flapjacks. lovely!

The fab @Yogivegetarian shared a #glutenfree #shortbread recipe. Lovely! Like #almond? You will be loving this then! Almond Frangipane fingers.  These #chocolate #hazelnut cookies look so tempting!

Many thanks to @ChubbaNia for sharing her #Lemon rolls recipe. Have a good browse through her blog. It’s amazing and all GF.

Thank you everyone once again!


#Biscuits and #cookies theme #veganrecipehour 2nd October 2014

I was a bit cheeky again and chose the theme that I really wanted! Perks of the job eh! I am very very partial to a biscuit (or three) I’m not a cake fan really. even when I was a baby, apparently I would just sit there are crumble it. I do however love baking cakes. My husband is very happy about that!!

So, back to biccies! Are you a dunker? I admit I am. The biscuit has to  be of the correct type to dunk. No one likes a soggy mess of mushy biscuit in the bottom of their mug! I’m thinking a nice ginger nut and a cup of tea. There is a science to this…honestly…(maybe)…..

Anyway!…. Show me the Cookies!!

Yes, this is what I look like!


I thought this recipe from ChocCoveredKt for Chocolate covered Quinoa Cookies looks fab! Something a bit different? How about #Chocolate #avocado #cookies shared by @Forked_tongues? They look so tasty!

This is one of my recipes, #Cranberry and #Hazelnut chewy cookies. They don’t last very long in our house!

Thank you so much to @lovesusiestars for sharing her recipes. #vegan Quaker #oat cookies (and amazing cutters!) How about #ginger biscuits?

Many thanks to @apriltui for sharing recipes. These #oat and #raisin cookies look lush.

These are great. 4 ingredient cookies from @veghotpot. #glutenfree.

Carrot,coconut and date munchkin anyone!? Many thanks to @theveganegan  for sharing this lovely recipe:

You need: Coconut Pulp, Carrot Pulp, Dates, Agave, & Nutmeg

(Best way to get the pulp is to cold-press carrot & coconut juice).

Mix the pulps & the dates in food processor. Blend until mixed.

Shape into munchkin size with dash of nutmeg. Drizzle with agave & ENJOY!

These #Chocolate chip Teatime #biscuits look soooo good! Thank you @sentientchef. For a tasty, quick biscuit fix, why not give these Thumbprint cookies from @VeganCoaching a try? Or these very tasty looking Linzer cookies.

This is another favourite in our house. #Raw #Gingerbread. Perfect for Christmas!

it was lovely to tweet @marchpanemedlar again Especially as they shared this recipe for chunky chocolate chip cookies! Not quite a biscuit but, i will include it anyway, thank you to @PaulYoud for sharing his recipe for Healthy #fruit and #nut bars. Very nice.

Have a good look through these amazing #pumpkin recipes from #FettleVegan. Spot on seasonal recipes (all of which I want to try!) Scroll down and you will find some #Pumpkin bread cookies! They also shared these intriguing Dark Chocolate #rosemary cookies. I’m going to have to try those! Oh the things I do in the name of Veganism hey… such hard work…hehehee!

Many thanks to @TheFlexitarian for sharing this lovely recipe for Crunchy #spelt #raisin cookies. Yum!

You are all awful to me you know…. You give me cravings during #veganrecipehour and then when I’m writing it up! Hehee!

You are all still fab.
