Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

My mom used to make the best pancakes for us on the weekends and I always wondered how she got the recipe perfect every time. As we got older and I started making my own food, learning more about plant based and vegan lifestyles, a few of my childhood recipes were left in the past….

Gingerbread Oat Energy Balls

Christmas is just around the corner and before the day hits I wanted to do a few super quick recipes for those who are quickly running out of time (myself included).

Warm Lentil Soup

I wasn’t sure what type of fall recipe I wanted to create and was feeling stuck mostly because I didn’t want to run out and get more ingredients (lazy day!). I ended up throwing what I had at home into a pot and it turned out being this delicious, warm lentil soup. Not only is…

Vegan French Toast

I hadn’t had french toast for years, since my mom would make it for my sister and I for breakfast quite often and we really enjoyed it. The idea popped back into my head a little while ago so I tried out a few ingredients to see if I could capture the essence of french…
