three vegan christmas cookies ⭐️

It’s been very busy in my vegan Christmas bakery this past week ~ as you might have seen over on instagram ~ and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the vegan cookie recipes I use.
Christmas is around the corner, so maybe you’ve already done ALL THE BAKING, but I thought I’d share my three favourite vegan Christmas cookie recipes anyway! You can always bookmark this post for next year. πŸ™ƒ

vegan christmas fruit bread 🍎⭐️

My mum always used to make a Christmas fruit bread with lots of nuts and dried fruit and baked it in these small baking tins of different shapes and sizes (at least 10-15 I guess, sometimes she made multiple batches) and gave them away to people on Christmas. She wrapped them in tin foil and a christmas-y kitchen towel and added evergreens and little Christmas ornaments. She’d been doing this ever since I can remember and people absolutely adored her fruit bread. Last Christmas was the first Christmas without her celebrated fruit bread. And although her very own recipe still exists of course, I’d never ever share it. I also don’t feel ready to follow in her footsteps and take over her annual Christmas bread baking. I’ll probably bake some someday, but I think I won’t take over and keep up her tradition of baking Christmas bread for all of the family’s friends and relatives. Some traditions die with the people who first came up with them, I guess.

However, I’ve been missing the taste of this kind of cake that is so stuffed with fruits and nuts that you’re not even sure if there’s flour in it at all. So I kind of made up my own, vegan Christmas fruit bread and although it doesn’t taste like my mother’s, it is pretty yummy and also easy to make.

q&a – uni, work, whales, and living in berlin …

The long awaited Q&A blogpost is finally here. It took me a while, because I’m currently working on doing less and slowing down. I don’t know if it is the end of year hustle, or if I just had a bit too much on in the last few weeks, but I oftentimes feel like I’m trapped in a hamster wheel and still don’t get everything done, although I’m seemingly going nonstop. Anyways, that’s probably the topic of yet another blogpost. You’re here for the Q&A.

vegan mac & cheese πŸ­πŸ‚πŸ•Έ

Long time no see … – am I still allowed in here or have I been excommunicated?
I’ve taken a good ol’ summer break that quickly turned into a late summer break and then into a full blown “summer until early autumn”-hiatus. We’ve been back from our ~ summer holiday ~ for almost two months now and although I had planned on getting back into blog stuff right after our return, I had quite a lot of other work on and had to postpone all blog related activities.

So although summer doesn’t seem that long ago, we’re in the middle of autumn already – my absolute favorite season – and I’m in a real Halloween/Spooky Season Mood. So I made vegan mac & cheese the other week and added a Halloween themed (pumpkin) twist.

journaling etc. πŸ“–✨

I’ve been meaning to write this blogpost for months now. But it’s just like it used to be with essays in University: I don’t feel like I could ever cover all there is to talk about and fathom the topic in its entirety – … so I don‘t even see the point in trying. That’s where I’m currently at with the very broad topic of ~journaling~.

Journaling/writing/reflecting with pen and paper, whatever you want to call it, means something different to everyone who actually journals/writes on a regular basis, I’m sure. It‘s very personal so there are obviously things I don’t want to and won’t share … but what to talk about then?

vegan oatmeal cookies 🐒🌾πŸͺ

You all probably know by now that I love a cup of tea (make that iced tea with oat milk during summer) and a good homemade cookie or biscuit.
I love trying out and experimenting with new recipes – but I usually fail to follow any recipes I find on other blogs or in books and instead make up my own. That’s also how this recipe I’m sharing today came about. So far, I made these cookies twice and they turned out a little different every time. Different, but so, so tasty! With a hint of coconut and a caramel-y flavour. πŸ‘€
