Plant recipe: 5 Minute Cookie Dough Recipe

IMAG0521When the weekend rolls around I always want to make something sweet. Mostly because I have the time as I’m off. 😉 This weekend I wanted to use up some food that was laying around in my press for awhile. I had to think a little bit of how I could use certain foods together. I had the majority of the ingredients for this  recipe already, chickpeas, oats, vanilla, pb2 and water of course. The only thing I had to run out and get was some fresh medjool dates from the local market and a nice dark chocolate for the chocolate chips and I was ready to make some delicious cookie dough! I just wish I had a better blender or food processor though so I could of gotten a smoother texture. My little blender just wasn’t able  to do that for me sadly. I was left with a mix that wasn’t as smooth as I would of liked but it still tasted great.  Continue reading

Plant recipe: Chocolate Nice-cream Pancakes

IMG_20150719_175236That’s right NICE-cream not ice-cream, a dairy free alternative that’s just as nice as ice-cream. You won’t believe it but this simple nice-cream is made of only TWO ingredients and can be ready in 10 minutes.

I made this tasty treat on Sunday for a mid-day snack as I was craving something sweet but carby after my morning cycle to Sixmilebridge from Limerick. I just got a new road bike that week so I was eager to get out on the road at the weekend for a good long cycle. Needless to say I was HUNGRY when I got home. This chocolatey mess really hit the spot. I’m a bit inpatient when it comes to food, especially when I’m hungry so I couldn’t wait for the pancakes to cool hence why the nice-cream is melting everywhere in the picture. But hey the important thing is how it tastes, not looks right? 🙂
