03 Sep 5 Easy Vegan Recipes for Busy Bees
As rewarding as eating plant-based is, after long days of hustle and bustle, we sometimes don’t have the time or energy to get creative in the kitchen.
Here are a few of our favourite vegan recipes that make cooking a little easier for busy bees, like you and me!
- 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
- ¾ cup cashew almond or peanut butter
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit and line a small baking tray with parchment paper.
- Peel sweet potatoes, cut them into large cubes and steam for 8-12 minutes, or until soft.
- In a food processor, blend the steamed sweet potatoes, cashew butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder.
- Pour into a lined baking tray.
- Bake brownies for 40 minutes and voila! Let your brownies cool and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
- You can leave your brownies as they are or make a cocoa walnut topping. For this you'll need to melt 4 squares of vegan dark chocolate, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp of maple syrup. When melted, pour over the brownie base and top with walnuts. Let cool and refrigerate.
