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. You can slice the bars anyway you like, big bars to take and run out of the door for busy mornings, small bars, or even mini-er bars 😉 …

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. I often hear groups of people gathered around a laptop trying to decipher or debating what Asquared +Q x Z(to the power of 3) – 1080 means. It …

Cinamon Scrolls + life’s meaning, happiness, purpose.

I’ve been reflecting on life a lot lately. Hence, the need to make these fluffy Cinamon Scrolls. The name Scrolls came when I was rolling the dough and I thought how they seem reminiscent of in the olden days when someone would write on parchment paper, roll it up, tie it up with a string and store it. Anyways, back to the present and these Cinamon Scrolls. Sometimes, when I’m caught in thinking, I feel the need to bake something that takes time. Can anyone relate to that? It’s as if along the process of mixing. rolling. rising. kneading. rising the dough. again. I come across the answers that seem to make sense of this thing we have called life.   So as my thoughts on life, and it’s meaning (the post on life’s meaning have moved here) manifested, the dough of these yummy Cinamon Scrolls were rising. I adapted the recipe from Minimalist Baker. Here is the original recipe by the talented Dana.  The recipe for the dough was simple and so yummy, I …
