Must Try Homemade Vegan Nutella!

Absolutely love Nutella but tired of all the crap that lies inside the delicious taste? Yep. Me too.

So, we decided to make our own. This recipe is sure to please and, as always, taste test and adjust to YOUR liking. You may need extra chocolate, extra medjool dates, or even an extra pinch of salt. Do what works for your own taste buds with this perfect Nutella base recipe!

Here in Italy, Italians love their Nutella like they love their pasta. It’s a big deal and almost all of them eat it no matter what’s inside. They put it on everything, even pizza (the plain one, without tomato sauce and cheese. You have to try it one day, it’s amazing!).

So when I gave this vegan Nutella to my Italian friends they were all skeptical at first, but they loved it! They said that it tasted amazing and they immediately asked for a jar to take home. I was so happy!

The key to making the creamiest vegan Nutella is to roast the hazelnuts first but you do not have to. If you are raw vegan, simply process until nice and creamy. It will still taste amazing and will pair beautifully with anything you wish to use it on!

For those who will be roasting the hazelnuts, I do recommend soaking them first, patting dry, and roasting. Using a kitchen towel, rub as many skins off as you can (no need to be perfect) and then blend up. Enjoy!

In search of a Food Processor to make all of your vegan dessert dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Processor: The Magimix

  • Now, listen. I LOVE my food processor. But I did not purchase this until I was already a recipe creator for 3 years and, in those three years, I saved up a heck of a lot of pennies. Once my original food processor died (you will see it below!), I decided to upgrade to this absolutely magnificent machine. Is this necessary for your kitchen? Probably not. BUT, if you are serious about creating recipes and have the budget, this is one that cannot be beat. P.s this has a THIRTY year warranty.

Magimix Food Processor

The Cuisinart 14-cup Food Processor

  • Brushed stainless steel, 720-watts, large capacity….this is an absolute gem of food processors! I love how it all detaches like our magimix and makes creating AND removing easy. If you have ever had a food processor where the blades do not detach, then you know the struggle.

Cuisinart Food Processor

Cusinart 7 Cup Food Processor

  • So, sadly, our original food processor is no longer being sold (I find this a bit odd!), but this one is the closest that I could find for the price range, brand name, and quality. I always recommend going for the higher cup size (10-14 range), but this is a wonderful option for small families/singles/students. If budget is a concern and you are a larger family, go for the refurbished items before going down in size (I promise, a small cup size will drive you INSANE and you will kick yourself for not going bigger and refurbished!). So this has a stainless steel detachable blade, compact cover, spatula, extra large feed tube, and a 5 year motor warranty.

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

If needed

  • Non-dairy milk as needed

Instructions

  • Add the hazelnuts to a large jar and cover with water. Pop into the refrigerator to soak overnight. We want these to soak for at least 8 hours!
  • Come the next morning, rinse the nuts well and pat dry with a kitchen towel. If you see any bad hazelnuts in the mix, toss those out now.
  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C and roast the hazelnuts for 13-15 minutes, until fragrant. Remove from heat and allow to cool just for a minute.
  • Add the warm hazelnuts to a food processor with all of the remaining ingredients
  • Process on high until smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  • If the mixture is too dry, add in 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk at a time as the food processor is running. Do not over milk it!
  • Once nice and smooth, transfer to a mason jar with a tight lid. Store in the refrigerator. Will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Notes

**Feel free to sub the vegan chocolate chips for vegan dark chocolate, cocoa powder, cacao powder, or a mixture. Add as it blends and just continue to taste test until it reaches your goal!

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

Compostable Parchment Paper
The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love. Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.

Vegan Stuffed Peppers with “Goat Cheese”

Vegan Stuffed Peppers with Vegan Goat Cheese!

Hello beautiful people, welcome back to another tasty plant-based recipe. Today it’s time for Stuffed Peppers with Vegan Goat Cheese (yes you red it right!)

My vegan journey has been pretty smooth over the past 7 years, but one thing that I sure do miss is the taste of goat cheese. I was a BIG fan of goat cheese and have been working on different recipes to kick those cravings.

It took me a while, it was especially difficult to get that intense flavor and consistency right. But I am so thrilled to have finally found it and share it with you all!

What I really love about this Vegan Goat Cheese recipe is that the ingredients are SO easy to find and it’s even easier to make.

Usually vegan cheese has lots of different ingredients and making it is quite tricky, but the only things you need to do to make this Vegan Goat Cheese is soak the cashews and blend all the ingredients together!

Not going to lie – I have been eating these every single day for a week now as my afternoon snack. Just hits all those right spots! Baking is an option here but I do highly recommend them as a raw snack.

Healthy Vegan Brownies in 30 Minutes!

Craving something as decadent and moist as brownies but don’t feel like dealing with the sugar/oil/processed crap high afterwards? Don’t worry, I got you covered! These healthy vegan brownies are a beautiful mixture of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and almond butter that mesh together like you wouldn’t believe.

Bonus: These are 100% cruelty-free!

 

healthy vegan brownies
When I made them the first time I soon discovered that creating the perfect vegan brownies was not as easy as I thought. I tried different recipes and mixed up the ingredients several times, sometimes they came out too dry to be even called a brownie, or too similar to a weird cooked chocolate mousse.
But I was determined, and so were my kids, who really wanted me to succeed! This recipe I came out with it’s the most amazing fudgy, gooey brownie you could ever taste!
To make it even more perfect usually try and invest in good quality ingredients, especially for the chickpeas and the chocolate chips, who are quite difficult to find diary-free. 
Also, and I cannot stress this enough, let them cool down before eating them. I know, I know, it’s sooo temping when they come out of the oven to just take a bite, the whole house smells like chocolate, and you just want to check how they turned out, right?
But trust me on this, let them cool down as much as possible, sometimes I even let them sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. And by the way, this goes for almost everything sweet that comes out the oven. You gotta be patient.
So, now you have everything to go and make the most delicious vegan brownies, let me know how they turn out!
Enjoy!

In search of a High Speed Blender to make all your pancake/smoothie/dessert dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Blender: The Vitamix Explorian Blender
  • It took me 3 years to choose this blender haha. I’m not even joking. I was so afraid of the price. So, instead, I purchased two other blenders in those 3 years that, low and behold, BROKE. The plant based lifestyle will wreak havoc on most blenders so you must choose a high quality one with a WARRANTY. The Explorian is one of the most inexpensive vitamix options but it still works great. I use it multiple times a day, every single day, and all of the recipes are from this beauty! Check out deals around Black Friday – you can usually snag one of these for under 200USD. For my European followers: Get ready to pay MORE than North America. I’m not sure why, but vitamix in Europe is double the price (which is actually more than double because we pay in euros/pounds/etc).

Vitamix Blender
 

Blendtec Classic Fit Blender
  • I have never owned a Blendtec, but I did live with someone who had one and it was pretty amazing. Never understood why it didn’t come with a tamper (?) but it does work beautifully. I am pretty biased with my years of experience with the vitamix over the Blendtec, but the price point is fantastic and there are TONS of videos out there comparing the two.

Blendtec
 

Nutri Ninja
  • I had a Ninja blender for years and years before I found the plant based lifestyle (or it found me). Prior to going plant based, I loved to make smoothies on a daily basis (still do today!). However, my smoothies were much *kinder* to the blender than today. While having owned both, I could just (and never would) compare a Ninja to a Vitamix – the difference is staggering. However, if you are just looking to blend up some oats, make light smoothies, or create epic dressings? Then go ahead and choose this one!

Homemade Vegan Energy Bars

Let’s cut right to the chase. How much money have you spent on energy bars, protein bars, raw vegan bars, etc? If you are anything like me, it’s A LOT. I went to the shop yesterday and ONE raw vegan brownie bar (I’m sucker for brownie bars) cost 1.98 euros. If I was in Chicago, it’d be more like $2.50 USD.

That is a ton of money spent on little bites of heaven that you can 100% make yourself! Today we are going to show you how to make an epic brownie like chocolate energy bar that is packed with protein and healthy fats. The medjool dates and figs are there to give you a HUGE burst of energy. If you haven’t already jumped on the medjool date train, I urge you to do so. Just magical!

Super Simple Vegan Parfait

Looking for a super simple yet delicious breakfast that comes together in about 5 minutes with just a food processor and a spoon? You have come to the right place!

I have always been a huge lover of parfaits. Typically, I would buy a bag of granola to make it, but for over 5 years now I have become quite addicted to raw granola. The term is coined “Rawnola” by the infamous Loni Jane (we adore her) and I just know you all will love her take on granola as well. Three ingredients is all it takes to whip up a yummy raw granola. Make a big batch and enjoy this for the entire week!

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

Compostable Parchment Paper

The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love. Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.

Chickpea Cookie Dough
The Best Chickpea Cookie Dough Ever!

Chickpea Cookie Dough!

I know I know, it sounds crazy. And yes, I was extremely skeptical to try this out after hearing so much about it! After switching up a few of the recipes that I tried and asking the boys what they liked/didn’t like, we now have our very own WonderMamas approved Chickpea Cookie Dough Recipe for you and your family to LOVE!

The key, I found, is to use an extremely runny cashew nut butter or soaked cashews. Another big thing that I noticed is that the addition of an extra liquid (when needed) was never advised. I have yet to make a cookie dough without a splash of vanilla soy milk, and I recommend that you do so as well (with whatever milk you choose). It makes it a lot creamier!

One EXTRA big tip is for my bulk buying folks: Soak your beans and cook them at home. Allow them to cook a little bit longer than usual so that they are extra soft. I find that the canned beans are a lot tougher in the cookie dough then home cooked. An Instant Pot (the only way I cook beans) always works wonders for cooking chickpeas to perfection. Let’s start making some cookie dough!

In search of a Food Processor to make all of your vegan dessert dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Processor: The Magimix

  • Now, listen. I LOVE my food processor. But I did not purchase this until I was already a recipe creator for 3 years and, in those three years, I saved up a heck of a lot of pennies. Once my original food processor died (you will see it below!), I decided to upgrade to this absolutely magnificent machine. Is this necessary for your kitchen? Probably not. BUT, if you are serious about creating recipes and have the budget, this is one that cannot be beat. P.s this has a THIRTY year warranty.

Magimix Food Processor

The Cuisinart 14-cup Food Processor

  • Brushed stainless steel, 720-watts, large capacity….this is an absolute gem of food processors! I love how it all detaches like our magimix and makes creating AND removing easy. If you have ever had a food processor where the blades do not detach, then you know the struggle.

Cuisinart Food Processor

Cusinart 7 Cup Food Processor

  • So, sadly, our original food processor is no longer being sold (I find this a bit odd!), but this one is the closest that I could find for the price range, brand name, and quality. I always recommend going for the higher cup size (10-14 range), but this is a wonderful option for small families/singles/students. If budget is a concern and you are a larger family, go for the refurbished items before going down in size (I promise, a small cup size will drive you INSANE and you will kick yourself for not going bigger and refurbished!). So this has a stainless steel detachable blade, compact cover, spatula, extra large feed tube, and a 5 year motor warranty.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Calories: 176kcal

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add the rolled oats to the food processor and process until a flour is formed.
  • Add in the rinsed/drained chickpeas, rinsed/drained cashews, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a splash of non-dairy milk (I like vanilla soy milk). Begin to process until a beautiful cooking dough looking mixture has come about. If it is too thick (canned beans will normally do this), add either extra cashews, cashew butter, or non-dairy milk.
  • Once the dough is formed, do a taste test. Add more sugar if needed.
  • Process for an additional 30 seconds and then pour into a bowl. Fold in the vegan chocolate chips. Serve.
  • If looking to prep this in advance, simply store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It WILL get stiff and I do recommend reblending before eating for best taste, however, it'll still be super yummy.

Notes

**Cashew butter works beautifully in this recipe but it has to be super runny. Stir it very well before adding it to the food processor.
**Any nut/seed butter will do, but we prefer the taste of the cashew butter for a "typical" tasting cookie dough. Peanut butter is delicious, of course. So is almond butter. Sunflower butter requires a bit more sugar - I like to use medjool dates when using sunflower butter.
**The non-dairy milk is here to help the dough get creamier than it would without. Please only use if needed. If the batter becomes TOO runny, just add in more chickpeas or nuts/nut butter.
**Oat flour can be subbed for the rolled oats, of course. You can also use almond flour.

Summer Lovin’ Vegan Watermelon Pizza

Looking for a super simple yet delicious lunch and/or dinner recipe that comes together in under 20 minutes?! Then look no further! These one tray healthy vegan tacos are always a hit in our vegan kitchen. The kids love them with lots of avocado and corn, and Martin loves them all of the fixings: guacamole, salsa, and jalapeños!

As for me, I love these tacos exactly as written with a good handful of chopped cilantro from the garden. Is there anything better than adding fresh herbs from your very own garden? I promise…it makes every meal just a bit more special.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Calories: 179kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 Watermelon
  • 1 cup non-dairy yogurt I opted for kite hill
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut

Instructions

  • The key is to properly slice the watermelon. I like to slice off the end on both sides of the watermelon and then, carefully, slice the watermelon into 2 inch thick slices. From there, you should have a sort of pizza shape circle/oval (all depends on your watermelon!). Lay it flat and slice the watermelon into large triangles.
  • Keep the traingles connected and add a nice layer of the non-dairy yogurt. Top with blueberries, raspberries, and a sprinkle of desiccated coconut.
  • Repeat until the entire watermelon is used up. You can also up to simply slice the watermelon into bite sized cubes and toss in the yogurt. Top this with the berries and coconut for an easy to eat snack for younger children (they may find it difficult to eat too large pieces of the watermelon pizza). Enjoy!

Vegan White Bean Basil Dip
Vegan White Bean Basil Dip

Vegan White Bean Basil Dip

Our garden is STOCKED with fresh basil and fresh parsley and I have been having a blast whipping up new and exciting dips for the boys and I to enjoy! This one is packed with basil, white beans, lemon and garlic. How delicious does that sound?

I love using cannellini beans for this specific dip because they are so moist and lovely to blend, but you can also use garbanzo beans and great northern white beans. My recommendation is to cook the garbanzo beans at home for dips because you have the full power to cook them a bit longer to soften them up a bit more! I love to use my instant pot and I will soak them first and then pressure cook them for 12 minutes. Once finished, they are at the perfect tenderness to blend into a delicious oil-free dip.

Tahini is optional but I do recommend using at least a tbsp of it. I love the earthy taste of tahini, so I will usually add more as the processor is mixing the dip together. It is all up to you!
