Vegan Raspberry Crumble Bars

So… I have something to celebrate! Yesterday on Friday, as of 4.30 pm in the afternoon, I stepped out of my very LAST exam of studying law and business. I don’t think I ever mentioned it here on the blog that for the past 4 years I’ve been studying at the University of Edinburgh. There will be a reflective post coming soon on the lessons I learned in the past 4 years because I’ve learned a lot in terms of growing up mentally & emotionally and I think it would be very valuable to share with you guys! But today’s post I’m going to share a simple recipe for Vegan Raspberry Crumble Bars  that helped me get through the last week of exams. They make the perfect on the go breakfast or also as a dessert, served warm with vanilla ice cream or your favorite creamy yogurt.

Coconut Chocolate Macaroons + How to stress-less

I have this in store for you today! Coco-nutty Macaroons dipped in velvety chocolate sauce. topped with crunchy pistachios.  It’s currently exam prep month for me. and also for everyone else around me. So the energy is quite intense. Whenever I walk into the library, I can feel everyone peering into their textbooks or laptops. Whenever someone makes a noise (crunching on some crisps, or get an unexpected phone call), everyone turns and give them the death stare. It’s seriously scary. I find some people heavily highlighting the journals that we should have read (but did not) during the term time. The academic journals have a colourful mesh of rainbow on it now. At least it doesn’t look as boring as it did before 🙂 Others are drawing funny looking diagrams in sticky notes and pasting their textbooks, files, folders, bags, coffee cups (even jackets) with it.
