These incredibly decadent raw vegan cookie dough chocolate cups are super easy to make, and are simply to die for. The homemade chocolate melts the moment it hits your tongue, and the raw vegan cookie dough filling is just the right amount of sweet, dense and fudgy. It really tastes like real cookie dough! This raw vegan dessert is gluten, dairy, egg, soy and refined sugar free, but you’d never know with how absolutely scrumptious it is!
EDIT: A reader helpfully pointed out that cooked chickpeas aren’t raw. Shocker, I know. *facepam* Good job on that one, Kat. To make these completely 100% raw, sub in ~more~ cashew nuts instead of the chickpeas. It won’t be the same, but it will definitely be just as yummy!
Can we all agree that raw cookie dough is the best thing ever? Cake batter is delectable, licking the bowl clean after making chocolate ganache is heavenly, but nothing – nothing – beats stealing pieces of raw cookie dough. While I’m all for cookies of all flavours, shapes and sizes, I always feel that baking takes something away from the wonder that is cookie dough.
These chocolate & mint raw vegan cheesecake bites will blow you away with the perfectly paired flavours of dark chocolate and mint. The raw chocolate cups have just enough bite to them and melt the moment they hit your tongue, while the mint filling is incredibly creamy and decadent. Super easy to make, these vegan cheesecake bites are gluten, dairy, egg, soy and refined sugar free.
There seem to be many misconceptions about raw (vegan) desserts. They are often regarded as poor substitutes for “normal” desserts (that is, those that contain flour, eggs, sugar and butter, and are usually baked), as if their taste and appearance can’t match up to a certain idea of what a dessert should be. But here’s the thing: raw desserts are absolutely marvellous – they open up a whole new world of exciting flavours and textures.

This recipe is the first in a series of recipes coming from my mum’s kitchen. You will be able to find all the future deliciousness in the main menu under the hugely uninspired title: “My Mum’s Kitchen”.
Let me start this post by saying that I’m not responsible for the masterpiece that is this vegetable omelette recipe. The cooking is all my mum, while the superb photography is all my dad. You see, I owe my love for cooking and baking to my mum. As well as the skill, the knowledge, and the never-mind-the-recipe-I’ll-just-do-it-my-way attitude in the kitchen. My dad’s been attempting to teach me the ins-and-outs of photography, and many things stick… but, well, I’ll-just-do-it-my-way attitude has a way of… spreading… to all areas of life. Oops.
