This is the perfect recipe to make the most of that few-days-old loaf or cake that needs to be eaten soon! In less than an hour, you’ll have a brand new sweet treat to serve the kids and their friends, or to stash and enjoy yourself.
Crackers are descendants of the earliest foods cooked by man – grain and water paste baked on hot stones 10,000 years ago. They’re thought to be the first convenience foods, hard and portable with a long storage life. When compressed yeast became available in 1870, leavened crackers went into large scale production, and two cracker bakers, Belcher and Larrabee, imported machinery to Albany, New York, changing the demand for crackers from a staple food to luxury food products.

The secret recipe:

  1. Preheat your oven. Low heat (250°F)
  2. Slice your sweets. Take loaves and muffins that are soon to be stale, and slice them into thin pieces, no more than 5mm thick. Lay them side by side on a baking sheet (not on top of one another).
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on your sweet crackers to make sure they don’t burn. They will continue to crisp after you take them out of the oven as they cool.
  4. Enjoy!

Tips + tricks:

  • Spread on a layer of jelly, or nut or seed butter, and sprinkle on some hemp seeds or coconut shred for a satisfying snack. Or grind them up and use them as a base for another dessert!

There’s a good reason we all scream for ice cream!

Ice cream’s origin dates back as far as the second century. Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavoured with honey and nectar, and Nero Claudius Caesar loved his snow treats flavoured with fruit and juices. Marco Polo returned to Italy from his travels with a recipe that resembled sherbet, and in England, Charles I enjoyed a similar treat called “Cream Ice.” The recipe has evolved throughout history, and we’re continuing to mix it up with our fresh and simple creation!

banana-ice-cream

The secret recipe:

  1. Freeze your ripe bananas. This frozen fruit will be the base of your ice cream! No dairy, no gluten, no added sugars. Slice or break into small even pieces and place in the freezer in an airtight container for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible. 1 large banana makes about 2 servings.
  2. Blend or process your frozen bananas. Take your frozen bananas from the freezer and transfer into a blender or food processor until completely smooth. You might need to stop to wipe down the sides to make sure it’s all mixed in evenly.
  3. Add your dough into the mix. When your bananas are completely smooth, now is the time to add your cookie dough chunks into the blender or food processor. Blend for a couple of seconds only to mix it throughout your bananas.
  4. Freeze until solid (or don’t!). Transfer your mixture into an airtight container and place it in the freezer until it’s solid. If you just can’t wait, you can enjoy it right out of the blender or food processor as a soft serve consistency.
  5. Enjoy!

Tips + tricks:

  • Sub out some or all of the bananas for frozen mangos!
  • Try different doughs! We make a gluten-free chocolate chip, double chocolate, and walnut brownie batter, and nut-free organic ginger molasses, chocolate chip, and double chocolate.
  • Try different sweets! Swap the dough for crumbled cake or loaf.

They say you eat with your eyes first. Although eating involves all of our sensory systems (taste, sight, smell, sound and touch), there’s only one working when we’re browsing everyone’s delicious creations on Instagram, and there’s no denying the impression made by simply looking at a great dish.

In the 1700’s, Louis XIV enjoyed multi-tiered tables with carefully decorated, luxurious foods – something reserved for the very wealthy. But it was Chef Marie-Anotine Careme, born in 1784, who arguably brought plating into the modern world. He presented dishes in the shapes of famous monuments, waterfalls, and pyramids, and is believed to have invented the croquembouche.

Although our sweets may be packaged simply, with a few quick tricks you can transform any of our desserts into high end, formal, plant-based delicacies.

Fancy Whoopie Pie

The secret recipe:

  1. Choose your plate. Think of this as your canvas. Plain white is a popular choice to let the food visually pop, but a cute pattern, or vintage design can make a great statement too.
  2. Smear or drizzle. Decorate your plate with a smear of mushed banana or berry jam, a sprinkling of cinnamon, or a drizzle or chocolate or caramel sauce.
  3. Place your dessert. Cut your cookie in half. Place one half down on the plate, with the other half gently leaning on it. We recommend using our sinfully delicious Super Stuff Cookies (a sweet collaboration with Chef Doug McNish). These vegan, gluten-free, fudge or goji stuffed cookies are soft enough to cleanly cut in half, and reveal the beautiful superfood stuffing. If you’re looking for a nut free treat, we recommend trying our Whoopie Pies.
  4. Add a pop of colour, texture and flavour with a couple of small berries, sprig of mint, slices of banana, or shredded coconut.
  5. Enjoy!

Tip + tricks:

  • Substitute one Super Stuff Cookie for two Flourless Cashew Cookies which are smaller in size
  • Pop in a candle for a personal-sized birthday treat
  • Serve with a shot glass of your favourite non-dairy milk
