Vegan Brownies

Hello everybody, happy Sunday! I don’t know about you, but brownies have got to be one of my favourite chocolate treats. Although they are delicious, they aren’t the best for you. So, I decided to tweak one of my favourite brownie recipes to make them a little healthier as well as vegan because a couple of people in my family are allergic to egg:) Now you can enjoy brownies no matter what your dietary requirements! Enjoy<3


Ingredients:

  • 1¼-cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup chopped almonds, or nut of choice.
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan forced
  2. Combine flour, sugar cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. Mix oil and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients gradually and mix to combine.
  5. Gradually pour almond milk and mix.
  6. Add chopped nuts to your mixture and combine.
  7. Spoon mixture into greased tin and flatten evenly to ensure even baking.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes until soft crust forms on the top of your brownie.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy:)

There you have it! My favourite vegan brownie recipe with no butter, eggs or milk:) Let me know your favourite brownie recipe in the comments and tell me how it goes of you try mine out!

Autumn Favourites 2016

Hi friends, it’s been a while hasn’t it? You are probably wondering where I disappeared to over the past couple of weeks! A couple of weeks ago I was on a school camp where we had no access to Wi-Fi or a signal which was hard but a really nice break from the social world:) This week has been literally filled with exams and for that I apologise deeply! I will try my best to get back on track with my posts and I want to thank you all so much for your everlasting patience and constant support<3

As I haven’t done one of these in a while, I thought I would share some of the things I have been loving this season! Let me know your thoughts in the comments and I would love to hear what you all have been into! Here we go!


Music

The last few months have been amazing when it comes to music with so many new albums coming out and so many people kicking off their tours! From Drake to Beyoncé to Calvin Harris, the hits have just kept on coming and sometimes, it’s just too much to handle! Besides all the awesome new music, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Beyoncé have kicked off their world tours and I couldn’t be more excited! So without further ado, here’s the rundown…

  1. ‘One Dance’ by Drake, Wizkid and Kyla.

I honestly cannot get enough of this song… it’s just so catchy and makes you want to dance every time it plays!

  1. ‘Never Be Like You’ by Flume and Kai

This song is literally been stuck in my head for the past month and I can’t help it at all! It’s just so catchy and it’s nice to hear a song that has a deeper meaning than most that you hear on the radio today. Ahhh…just so good…

  1. ‘Hypnotic’ by Zella Day

Ok, I know this is a little bit of a throwback but I recently discovered this song from a friend and I’m kind of obsessed… The first time I had heard Zella Day was on the ‘Insurgent’ soundtrack but I didn’t really look into her music until now, and I’m so glad I did!

Books

I’m kind of hating on myself for the lack of books I’ve read this season, but I’ve really had no time! So, instead of my seasonal favourites, here are the books that I hope to read in the near future:)

  1. ‘The Finisher’ by David Baldacci
  2. ‘Cat ‘o’ Nine Tales’ by Jeffrey Archer
  3. ‘Looking for Alaska’ by John Green
  4. ‘Damage Done’ by Amanda Panitch

 

Randoms!

Here are just some of the random things I’ve been loving this season:)

151397-L-LOAcoustic Guitar

Ok, my guitar has got to be the most exciting thing I purchased this season and I am absolutely in love with it! It’s a Monterey Acoustic, which is a very basic acoustic guitar that is perfect for beginners like myself!

 

Once Upon A Time

onceuponatime_season5_poster1Many of you may not know, but I absolutely love this show, which I was introduced to early last year! Season 5 wrapped up a couple weeks back and it was probably one of my favourite seasons yet! I absolutely can’t wait for the next season, which will premiere later this year:)

 

Candles

50136193-2-lowresNow that it is finally getting cooler again, I have  wasted no time in
lighting my favourite candles again! I absolutely adore candles and my room constantly smells of something  different everyday, which I absolutely love!

 

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Ok, I love Reese’s all year round but I have just been addicted to them over the past couple of 05980l36651months! They’re just the perfect mix of salty and sweet and the way they melt in your mouth is simply divine:)

 


There you have it! My Autumn Favourites for 2016:) Let me know what you have been loving this season and what you’re excited to try out!

I’ll be getting on top of my posts and I’ll see you all very soon<3
