I’ve been on something of a raw vegan dessert roll lately (proof right here and here). Up to a few weeks ago, making a raw vegan dessert seemed like a far-away dream, both exhilarating and kinda scary at the same time. There is a certain sophisticated quality to raw desserts, with their polished edges, amazing textures, colourful appearance and intense flavour, which can make them seem as something to strive for, always remaining just out of your reach.
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.

So, Christmas has come an gone (I hope you’ve all had an absolute blast!) and now New Year is rapidly approaching. And with the New Year, there inevitably come… New Year’s resolutions. But: can we just not this year. Seriously, please don’t.
Why do we pin so much importance onto a completely arbitrary day in the year? I mean, it’s just a calendar, folks! Do we really need a piece of paper to tell us how to live? Sure, if you’re under about 15 years old, New Year’s Eve is so totally cool because you’re allowed to stay up ’til midnight… or maybe I’m just too old and it’s actually only cool if you’re under ten? I don’t know.
