Sorghum “Buns” in Banana Pudding – Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I’m still tweaking this recipe, but it certainly will hit the spot for a fun dessert that’s sweet and easy to make (if you have a steamer). We found our little steamer at a store in Kuala Lumpur within Nu Sentral (a big shopping mall with all sorts of stuff). We can use it to…

Sugar-Free, Vegan Banana Cake

This recipe could easily be adapted to a cupcake recipe as well. Simply use cupcake liners and a cupcake tin and bake for 15-25 minutes instead! I find that this recipe turns out best after it’s sat in the fridge to set for about 3 hours, but fresh out of the oven is delicious too,…

Lemon “Loaf” + Icing

This is a fun dessert that is unlike any other dessert I’ve come across. Although intended for baking in a loaf pan (a cake pan would work too), this “loaf” is candy-like and indulgent. But, even though it’s indulgent, this is a guilt-free dessert that’s vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! Almond flour may be substituted…

Carrot-Chia Muffins

I recently made┬ásome non-vegan carrot muffins that included coconut sugar as a sweetener instead of stevia, but since we’re no longer eating eggs (the final straw — we’re now officially vegan), and we’re not planning on eating any added sugars for at least the next 2 months until the end of our cleanse, I needed…

Buckwheat Pizza Crust

Pizza is a much beloved staple comfort food in the United States (and elsewhere). It’s been a long journey to begin with to figure out how to make a respectable pizza without all of its traditional key ingredients (cheese, wheat flour crust, etc.), but we’ve managed pretty well. I was concerned that on the candida…

Buckwheat and Oat Flatbread Crackers

I love hummus, guacamole, salsa, and just about any other similar dip. And I love corn chips with these dips (particularly the Totopos that you can find here in Mexico!). But, on the candida cleanse diet we can’t eat corn… so therefore, that means┬áno corn chips. Every day I look fondly at the Totopos sitting…

Candida-Diet Vegan Berry Pancakes

We served these vegan pancakes with steamed potatoes (topped with olive oil, salt, and pepper) and a salad complete with lots of fruits and veggies. This pancake recipe was adapted from the book “The Candida Cure” by Ann Boroch to suit the ingredients we had in our pantry at the time and all the other…

Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Bread, buns, and cinnamon rolls have been the bane of my baking existence ever since I went gluten-free. The struggle I’ve had to find the perfect cinnamon roll is definitely comparable to the multiple mess-ups and failures I’ve had making a vegan cheesecake since I went dairy-free (which was shortly before I cut gluten too).…

Vegan Butter

Butter is pretty difficult to replace, even with the commercial alternative butter products on the market in the United States right now. I used these commercial butters in my baked goods for a long time, but when I came to Mexico I was forced to use coconut oil instead for nearly all my baking. I’d…

Paleo Dinner Rolls

So today I set out on a mission to make a variety of “travel treats” for my family’s upcoming trip to Guanajuato. Prior to leaving for Tijuana (where we’re currently stationed), I set out on a similar mission… except when I set out on that mission, I have every ingredient I needed at my fingertips.…
