Vegan and Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

As I’ve mentioned in some other blog posts, I have coeliac disease so eat a strict gluten-free diet. I don’t talk about it much on the blog, because it’s a vegan blog, and is not about health or gluten-free recipes, but all the food I cook does happen to be gluten-free, and my recipes on my blog are either all gluten-free or can be made gluten-free, depending on what type of flour, pasta, etc. that you use. I know a lot of people looking for gluten-free and vegan cake recipes, and in general for vegan cake recipes, so thought I would share this recipe.

Chocolate Peanut-Butter No-Bake Squares

I’m always trying to think up of new recipes that work as a quick breakfast or snack to give me and the kids energy, and they’re extra good if they have chocolate, so I think this is going to be one of our new favourites!  (Ok, I say that about a lot of things…)  These are really quick and easy to make, with ingredients that you might already have in the house, they’re a nice sweet treat but fairly healthy too, and will give you energy for the day.  They’re full of chocolatey peanut-buttery oaty goodness! Read More »
