Decadent chocolate tahini pie

This cake is truly luxurious. The biscuit made from chocolate and almonds, the layer of rich chocolate that covers it, the sweet fudge with sea salt, the tahini, and you could even add an extra layer of caramel with some coconut cream and powdered sugar if you want to go extra fancy. This cake is more than just a treat.

If you want a quick and easy breakfast or snack to make without an oven, then rawnola is what you need. Seeing as it has become customary for us to start the day off with granola, it can be nice to mix things up a little sometimes. Oh, and if you add some extra dates or other dried fruits to this recipe, you can also make some delicious bars to take to school or work with you.

Vegan and GF Banoffee pie

Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a fancy and sweet-tasting pie. Banoffee pie with salted caramel and caramelised banana is exactly that kind of pie. It’s that kind of pie you really shouldn’t take two slices of, but you do anyway

Simple series tahini sauce

This has to be the easiest recipe we have, but we make this so often and we never get sick of it, so here it is anyway. This easy to make tahini dressing is delicious in a salad or with some grilled veggies. Or, if you make some quinoa with chopped raw vegetables, this dressing will finish it off perfectly!

Simple series granola

Granola is the perfect recipe for someone who can’t bake to save their life, but it is also a great basis for a good healthy breakfast, and will give you a happy feeling for the rest of the week.

To be completely honest, this is also my way of cooking and baking: throw a bunch of stuff together and pop it in the oven. But, of course, Food Bandits does sound a lot nicer. We make a big bowl of granola regularly, and I have some every morning with some fresh fruits, and Johann drowns it in almond milk.

Vegan and GF Pizza

Does this post really need an introduction? I can’t even express how happy and relieved I am now that we have a great recipe for gluten free and vegan pizza, that also actually tastes like pizza. No offence, but cauliflower is not pizza and courgette is not pasta. Both are great as veggies. Definitely! But we want actual pasta and actual pizza.

Simple series sweet potato fries

For years I’ve said that fries were my favourite kind of food. Or at least until I began to realise that my body doesn’t actually react very well to it. Generally, it’s just too greasy for me, and on top of that I’ve also realised that eating fries actually makes me lose energy instead of gaining energy from it. So lately I yell about how much I love eating a whole jar of kimchi, and believe me I’m not even lying. The moment you open my fridge, you can just smell the fermented garlic and chili flakes. My other great love is sweet potato fries

Vegan pavlova

This recipe has cost us a lot of sweat, blood and tears. Even though you can create some gorgeous white peaks from aquafaba (the water you find in canned chickpeas), I now found out the hard way that baking an actual classic pavlova with it is still quite a struggle. I think we must have tried out at least ten versions of this cake, but in the end, right at the moment we had decided to give up if this one didn’t work either, we succeeded. T

Chocolate pear cake

Simple cakes are, of course, the best. Especially now that we’re so busy with selling our house, looking for a new house, Johann’s new job, and the new work for Food Bandits, we don’t really have the time to spend literal hours in the kitchen.

For this cake, you’ll only need a bowl and a wooden spoon, and you’ll be good to go!

Simple series part one taco's

We’ve wanted to start a new series focusing just on quick and easy recipes to use on a weekly basis for a while. And now the time has finally come.

We do actually eat a lot of pies and cakes, but we also love easy recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients. The reason why we didn’t start this series sooner is simply because I’m a very hangry person when it’s nearly dinner time. You could therefore even say that we haven’t started it yet, because we like to keep things pleasant during dinner. But there are a couple of Food Bandits classics that you have to try out!

Vegan and gf apple pie

A couple of weeks ago, we away for the weekend to look at houses in Groningen and Drenthe. Sadly, we couldn’t find what we were looking for, but we did get the chance to enjoy my favourite season. The sun was shining and there was a light chill in the air, which was followed up by some strangely warm weather, by the way. The leaves had turned golden and we gathered the first chestnuts of the year to roast. Luckily, Johann had baked this incredible Dutch apple pie the Thursday before, which we could enjoy alongside a nice hot cup of coffee in our garden after our walk. This way, house hunting went a lot easier and was less of a chore.

Christmas cake

It seemed like a nice challenge for us to try to create a vegan and gluten free version of this classic Christmas treat. And a quick bake version of it too, just in case you still need to catch up on Stir Up Sunday. The heating up of the ingredients makes the flavours even stronger, which will make you even happier when you taste all those wonderful spices, the orange and the coffee. I, at least, know for certain that we’ll be making this cake again for Christmas.
