Chocolate SunButter Torte

There hasn’t been much action on the blog in many weeks.  The back to work and back to school season really took over, and now the Holidays are already upon us!   There’s no better time to share a new vegan dessert recipe than this festive time of year… whether you’re planning your Christmas of New Years menus, or whipping up some plant-based treats for your child’s school Holiday Potluck (as I am) – this Chocolate SunButter Torte recipe is a keeper.

I originally planned to make this a classic Peanut Butter Torte, but decided to give SunButter a try, as it’s made from sunflower seeds and therefore school-safe.   As soon as I’m done writing this post, I’ll be sharing this decadent treat with the kids and parents at my son’s school Christmas Show… fingers crossed they (and you!) love it as much as I do!

Chocolate Hemp Energy Oat Bars

My family and I are big into convenience when it comes to snacks…  Whether we’re in-between swimming lessons, school drop-off, work meetings, post-workout, etc. – we usually have a snack bar on hand in case we need a quick refuelling.   We’re lucky to have some fairly healthy and wholesome pre-packaged bars available at our health food store or online, but nothing can beat these homemade Chocolate Hemp Energy Oat Bars.

These quick and easy bars are made with wholesome ingredients such as rolled oats, Sunbutter, hemp hearts, and dairy-free chocolate.   I look forward to having one of these after a good workout!  So satisfying and delicious with a great mix of carbs, plant-based protein, and healthy fats.   These are kid approved as well, and since they are made with sunflower seed butter they are school safe – so throw them in a lunch box as a healthy snack time “treat”.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls (GF & V)

For our final day of our 5 Days of Holiday Balls we present you with a classic peanut-butter chocolate ball. Think Reese’s Pieces meets all natural goodness. Crunchy rice cereal, coconut, ground flaxseed and peanut-butter create a crisp interior which is rolled and dipped in chocolate then stuck in the freezer for a truly mouthwatering – but healthy – dessert ideal for any holiday party. Not a chocolate lover? No problem. This little ball can be served up without the chocolate and is equally (well almost) satisfying.
