Easy Vegan Cereal - Ready In 15 Minutes!

Easy Vegan Cereal - Ready In 15 Minutes!

The grocery store is filled with high-sugar, high-salt cereals. I decided to make my own vegan cereal instead— it isn't made with any artificial sweeteners either. This recipe is very simple and quick to make, and it can accommodate almost any diet. The key is to use melted coconut oil and maple syrup to bind and sweeten the mixture.

No-Bake Autumn Granola Bars

No-Bake Autumn Granola Bars

Making your own granola bars is a good idea. With the right amount of spices, your house will smell like autumn in an instant. But there's a catch to baking — it often requires time (and a lot of it). These no-bake autumn granola bars are here to the rescue. They will put you in a seasonal mood and they're perfect snacks that you can enjoy at home or at school with your friends. I've included the ingredients for the base of this recipe below. The add-ins are all optional. I encourage you to experiment with them and add different combinations of your favorite seeds and nuts into the no-bake autumn granola bars.

Sure, you could eat nutella by the tablespoon. But what good would that do for you? Try your hand at making homemade nutella instead. You'll know exactly what you're putting into your body and if you have all of the ingredients handy, you'll be able to whip it up in a cinch. Making homemade nutella isn't rocket science. You'll need a great food processor and a few other ingredients to make everything smooth and creamy.

Homemade Nutella

 Healthier Homemade Nutella Recipe // The PumpUp Blog
What do you need:
  • One cup of roasted unsalted hazelnuts
  • Half a cup of powdered sugar or if you are trying to avoid it, any sweetener that you like
  • Half a cup of cocoa powder
  • One teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • One teaspoon of vegetable oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Non fat / almond / coconut milk
Directions

In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts until a paste forms. I like a rougher texture to my homemade nutella, so I left chunkier hazelnuts remain in my mixture.

Add the sugar, the cocoa powder, the salt, vanilla extract and the oil and blend again for a few seconds.

Add the milk gradually and blend until you reach the thickness that you like.
Put it in the fridge for a couple of minutes or serve immediately.

My relationship with Oreos is complicated. I never used to like them, but I developed a special love for them when stressful times hit me. After a bit of research, I decided to make my own, healthier version of the bite sized biscuits. My reinvented vegan oreo biscuits will fill you up and curb those sugar cravings!


Before you try this recipe, make sure you put a can of coconut milk in the fridge for at least one day. The milk needs to separate from the coconut pulp so that you can create the recipe.


Reinvented vegan oreo biscuits

For the biscuits

  • 100 g nuts
  • 120 g pitted dates
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of the sweetener of your choice

For the filling

  • 1 can (165ml) of coconut milk with 78% pulp
  • 1 teaspoon any sweetener of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil

Instructions
  • Place all the vegan oreo biscuit ingredients into a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a paste. Keep an eye out on the mixture: if you blend it too much, it'll get really oily.
  • Take ingredients out of the food processor and knead it to form a thick dough. Roll it out, and use a rounded glass to cut the dough into firm, round, biscuit shaped discs. Leave them in the fridge while you make the filling.
  • For the vegan oreo biscuit cream, take the coconut pulp out of the can and place it in a bowl (separate from the milk).
  • Mix the pulp with sweetener, vanilla, and coconut oil until it forms a soft texture.
  • Take your vegan oreo biscuits out of the fridge and sandwich the cream filling between them.
  • Serve immediately or let it chill in the fridge before eating.
