10. Halloween maple & pecan pumpkin pies
we love creating seasonal recipes, and these little pumpkin pies are just too cute to not include in our top 10! they’re also super quick and easy to make if you buy ready made pastry
9. almond and rosemary loaf
bonus points as this loaf is gluten free! almond flour is such a great gluten free alternative to flour in baking, as it keeps everything moist and not too dense
8. cashew & cauliflower fritters
these are a great way to get fussy eaters to eat their veggies, and are so versatile! we loved them in wraps with salad for lunch, or even just as a snack (they taste great dipped in humous!)
7. no churn vegan pistachio ice cream
this recipe is super easy, super yummy and requires hardly any equipment! it’s great if you want to make ice cream but don’t have all the fancy gadgets to do so.
6. Czech snow cake
we couldn’t list our favourite recipes without including our Czech technical assistant’s delicious recipe for traditional Czech snow cake! it’s packed full of delicious nuts as well as a pastry layer, meringue layer and even a layer of jam
5. pecan pie
sweet pastry crust filled with a delicious mixture of egg, butter, sugar and pecans, what’s not to love? We even added some cinnamon and vanilla to enhance the flavour of the pecans, again you can cheat and use shop bought pastry to make the recipe super easy if you’re short on time
4. vegan millionaire shortbread
we love millionaire shortbread, so we made a healthier AND vegan version that tasted just as good as the real thing! it’s a must try, and uses our amazing Deglet Nour dates, which taste just like caramel
3. almond butter falafels
these falafels pack a great amount of plant based protein thanks to the ground almonds, almond butter and chickpeas, and they taste delicious! they’re great for lunch on flatbreads, or even to take in a Tupperware for healthy snacking on the go
2. the gooiest ever brownies
I saw a recipe similar to this one on Instagram, and didn’t believe that dates, nut butter and cocoa powder could make anything similar to a brownie, let alone something even gooier and more indulgent tasting, while being packed full of micro nutrients and energy! You need to trust us on this recipe, it might even change your life…
1. feta & walnut vegetarian sausage rolls
just knocking the brownies off the top spot are these amazing vegetarian sausage rolls! although these don’t contain a traditional meat substitute, hardly anyone could tell they were meat free. the feta adds a lovely sharp and salty note, and these were a massive hit in the factory canteen!
