Roadtrip Goodies! Vegan + Sugar Free + Organic

Roadtrip Goodies! Vegan + Sugar Free + Organic

My Vegan Road-trip Goodies!

No road-trip is complete without a selection of tasty treats!

The only thing to do when staring at the road ahead for long periods of time- is to eat! Followed by planning the acceptable time-frame before you eat again!

It is the best way to pass the time, and gives everyone something to look forward to!

With a little one in tow, it is even more important to me, to have little treats that he can enjoy, and I won’t feel guilty about offering him. And oftentimes, traveling as a vegan and aiming to avoid excess packaging, can make it tricky to come across suitable snacks along the way!

So, I decided I needed to whip up a few deliciously healthy vegan goodies for us to nibble on as we journey.

Baking, as a mother of a toddler, does not give one much time to indulge in complex recipes nor intricate delicacies. So my ideal recipes are those that require no more than ONE bowl and a handful of easy-to-source-in-bulk organic ingredients.

I managed to get 3 different recipes blended and baked all in the space of about 30 minutes! SO easy, simple and delicious! Not to mention cruelty-free and waste-free!

Recipes include:

1) Chocolate Tahini Slice

2) Easy Berry Muffins

3) Coconut Lime Slice

Hope you enjoy! xx
