A Little Bit About Us

Our goal is to make affordable, delicious, healthy food that nourishes our souls as well as our bodies. We love new flavors as well as old favorites. It's important, for us, not to place too many restrictions and be as free and simple as we can when it comes to our food. We have no fancy equipment or expensive gadgets (although when we're wrestling with our dinosaur blender/smoothie maker we have both thought how nice it'd be to have a functioning one.. lol). We love each other more than anything and making food together is rewarding on every level.

Raw Vegan Anzac Day Biscuits





First, I just wanna say THANKS everyone who is trying out our recipes on this blog!  My sister and I are very excited to share what we learn in the kitchen and connect with others who are also passionate about food, holistic health & creativity :)

Happy Anzac Day!!  Okay, well, Happy Inner Peace, LOVE and Acceptance Day too!  In the spirit of celebrating, my sister and I got creative and made some raw vegan Anzac Day Biscuits (cookies for all our mates in America)!  Seriously, these are perfect and I am told they taste very traditional :-)

Ingredients

3/4 cup of rolled oats
1/3 cup of shredded coconut
1/3 cup of sesame seeds
1/2 cup of almond meal
1/3 cup of vegan liquid sweetener--maple syrup or agave syrup or honey*
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
sea salt to taste



In a food processor, combine almond meal, coconut, sesame seeds, and oats until chopped finely.  Add in the salt, liquid sweetener and vanilla extract.  When the texture starts to clump up you are done processing.  The 'dough' mixture was difficult for us to roll into cookies by hand so we placed it firmly into a storage container.  We lined the bottom of the container with baking paper.  We placed the mixture inside and pressed down firmly until it was level in height.  We used baking paper on top as well since the doughy mixture was so sticky and hard to work with.  After that we cut the dough into bite size squares.  Place in the fridge for an hour and enjoy!

*some people agree that honey is vegan while others say it is not
