Today I want to share again all the recipes of the Advent calendar in this article. These recipes are incredibly easy and require only 2 or 3 ingredients. For most of them we’ve made a little video.

And these are the recipes:

– Roasted Trail Mix
– Homemade Cinnamon Apple Sauce
I have a new dessert recipe for the fruit lovers among you! The strong plum taste combined with lots of cinnamon makes this tart sooo delicious. The recipe has two particular features:
I don’t use fresh plums, but dried ones that I soak overnight. As dried fruits are naturally very sweet, I don’t need to use a lot of other sweeteners. Besides the plums, I add only 5 dates to make this tart sufficiently sweet. No sugar or honey is needed. Furthermore, I always have dried fruits at home. Whenever I want, I can make this tart without planning a grocery shopping for fresh fruits in advance.
Below the fruits, there is a wonderful thick cream made out of cashews. If you regularly read my recipe articles, you know how much I love cashews. Of course, I also like to experiment with other nuts and seeds (like for ex. for the vegetable quiche). Though, my absolutely favorite ingredient to make vegan and soy-free alternatives for dairy products are cashews.This plum tart is not only a great dessert, but can also be enjoyed as a healthy snack. You can eat some dried fruits, some nuts and a slice of wholegrain spelt bread. Regarding the ingredients, there wouldn’t be a big difference. But for the taste, I recommend you choosing the slice of plum tart! 😉
Homemade is always best! A week ago, I suddenly felt like trying a vegan and sugarfree nutella. But I really didn’t expect that it would turn out so great right away. Prospi was also surprised by the result of the experiment. This is why we have both been eating homemade nutella daily during the last week. We have already tried all kinds of variations. As bread spread, in our morning porridge, plain from the jar, in a cake dough, as muffin topping, etc.
The only three ingredients to make this variation of nutella are dates, hazelnuts and cocoa powder. The result doesn’t taste of dates at all. In contrast, it is very nutty, as the roasting process intensifies the taste of the hazelnuts. The recipe is very easy and by all means worth a try! Continue Reading
