So firstly the cake! If you’re looking for something a little different from the usual carrot cake this Easter (although I do love a carrot cake)…then this is for you.
A gorgeously moist spiced apple and parsnip cake packed with delicious and nourishing ingredients like; ground almonds, banana, dates, spices and of course apple and parsnip which helps to naturally sweeten the cake. It’s vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free – I hope you love it as much as me.
Our top ten vegan treats for Easter
By JenHead Rebellious Researcher and Badass Foodie @ RR HQ
Glorious Vegans – we hear you. Easter can be an infuriating time. Shelf upon shelf of milk chocolate eggs and displays crammed with chocolate bunnies and chicks with little thought given for the non milk drinkers among us. Even in recent years, often vegan friendly offerings leave our tastebuds salivating for something more without really hitting the magical spot that chocolate really should give everybody.BUT……times they are a-changing. There is now an abundance of choice hitting up the chocolate heavy food scene this April. Easter can now be a glorious time, even for vegans. So where to head to for those vegan friendly delights?
Here’s my top 10 that you really must get your hands on whether buying for yourself or vegan loved ones. To be honest they are all so divine that vegan or not, your mouth and soul NEED these….
Coco Caravan – Vegan Chocolate Easter Eggs with a Caramel Centre
Seriously. The stuff of dreams. Tiny decadent dark chocolate eggs filled with the gooiest vegan caramel. Healthier indulgence in all its glory. Coco Caravan we salute you. £6 for 8 eggs (i’d stock up if I were you to ensure you have supplies to last you the whole year….you’ll understand once you crack one open 😉
Green & Blacks Organic 70% Dark Easter Egg
Probably one of the easiest to get your hands on as they are widely available in supermarkets but don’t let that fool you into thinking green and blacks dark chocolate isn’t special. It’s one of our year round staples and in egg form for some reason its just that little bit better. £6.59 for 165g egg.
Elements for Life Vegan Easter Raw Chocolate Making Kit
Such a lovely alternative idea, we have loved E4L since their very early days in 2015 (you need to try their yummy scrummy if you haven’t yet sampled the delights
Perfect for kids and makes a really unique gift for those health conscious vegan foodies too. Every kit contains enough ingredients to make two trays of raw chocolates, weighing around 250-300g, depending on your taste. Plus a reusable silicone chocolate mould to continue your raw chocolate adventure! £15.29 from Yumbles with free delivery.
Raw Halo Easter! Easter! Easter! Gift Box
This is part of the Create Your Own Gift Box to fit the occasion from the wondrous Raw Halo. The box is delicately embossed by the super talented and rather marvellous Too Wordy and you can add your favourite 6 x 35g bars of raw halo’s award winning chocolate. Organic as well as vegan their flavour combinations are heavenly. A really different take on the Easter gift but with pizazz as well as deliciousness! £18.99 for 6 bars and embossed gift box
Rhythm 108 Mini Creme Truffle Eggs
Vegan + Gluten free these scrummy little morsels are perfect pressies for kids and are a darn good alternative to creme eggs. £2.35 for a 36g pack
Pure Decadence from Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Easter Egg Rare & Vintage
Single Origin Chocolate Lovers….this is for you. This seriously eggstravagant offering from Hotel Chocolat is simply incredible and ticks all the boxes for a easter treat for someone really special (like YOURSELF too!). Its filled with single origin luxe nuts too which is an extra treat inside the decadently thick egg shell. £29 but worth every darn penny in my eyes.
Booja Booja Large Almond + Sea Salt Caramel Easter Egg
Like everything they do, the easter egg collection from Booja is unbelievable and it’s hard just to choose one however these are my favourite favourite favourite (ok so I really do like these) truffles so the egg is going to be even better right? Almond and sea salt is such a winning combo and they’re organic as well as vegan too! Small eggs from £9.95
Montezuma’s Like No Udder Milk Chocolate Egg
Again these are organic and I really do think they are as close to milk chocolate as you’re going to get AND you get the added bonus of their chocolate buttons too! It’s almost like it was made for vegans! 😉 £9.99
Fortnum & Mason Handmade Almond Dark Chocolate & Nut Egg
£35 is quite a lot for an easter egg I know, but when its Fortnums luxury its ok right?! Handmade by master chocolatiers and some exciting little added treats inside too.
And for those who aren’t chocolate fans…..We absolutely adore
