Creamy chocolate bars {vegan + gluten-free}

I know I said I was on a bit of a hiatus, but I just had to jump back and share these rich, melt-y chocolate bars that have been helping me through my current chocolate fetish. Spinning round on my brain all day long is pretty much a solid trigger for comfort food, but there’s none better at this point than silky chocolate.

Sweet potato oat bars {vegan + gluten-free}

I have a confession to make: these bars almost didn’t make it to the blog. Not because they aren’t delicious, but because I almost ate them all up before taking pictures earlier this week. Usually I’m quite good and don’t really scarf down every morsel, but I don’t even think Man-thing got a real slice, which goes to show that these are magical indeed!Sweet potato oat bars {vegan + gluten-free} via Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading

Frosty passionfruit pear cheezecake

Friday!! Whoo hoo! Well, I don’t want to say not really, since I have so much work to do and little time in which to get it down, but it’s still the principle of the matter: celebrate where and when you can. It’s been a while since I posted something food-related, so I figured I’d dig something out of the draft archives that I’ve wanted to share for a while. These munchies are long gone by now, but they were tasty and easy, so even laziness is no excuse for me to make them again, and for you to try them out πŸ˜€Passionfruit pear cheezecakes via Marfigs' Munchies {vegan + gluten-free}

Carrot oat balls

Whoo hoo! Ever since I finished exams I have been living life to the full…or at least getting full on these carrot oat balls. Same thing, nay? Anyhow, since I am unchained for the moment I have a breath to catch in time and space and start getting all my ducks in a row for the next few adventures: my teaching practicals starting at the beginning of next month, a possible cool second job that will make me feel rich, a trip to Morocco to plan (ARGH!), and other treats like homing kittens and attending courses on how to be an awesomesauce teacher. Well, if you thought that was a mouthful you should see the inside of my head: it’s just a non-stop blab fest, which is why I’m going to switch over to food now to calm us all down again πŸ˜€

The chocolate cleanse riot: free ebook!

It’s finally here!! I can’t remember if I’ve been sneaky or not about this ebook (which is possibly another layer of ninja if I can hide even that from myself) but I’ve finished and it’s all yours for free and it’s 100% dedicated to my food mistress: chocolate. No matter how busy I get or how lazy, there’s always time in the day for a nibble on something chocolate-y. I may have something of an addiction, but I’ve decided to make a total chocolate cleanse for myself….with chocolate. And since it’s free, you can “cleanse” with me! πŸ˜€Chocolate Cleanse Riot Ebook via Marfigs Munchies Continue reading

Pumpkin blackstrap freezer tartlet

I love freezer treats so hard. I even have a tag, as you may have seen. Nom nom! It’s a non-stop heat wave in our part of the world and there’s no way to indulge in anything that isn’t chilled to the proverbial bone. This is a little treat, size-wise, but cut it up into little pieces and you have a delicious bit of munch for every day of the week. Sharing is totally optional πŸ˜€Β blackstrapfreezertarletspashAnd don’t forget about the free mini ebook you can download! Holidays may almost be over but there’s no reason not to spoil yourself every day of the year to come.Β veganxmassplash

Guide to using up holiday leftovers

HolidayleftoversIt’s something of a law of nature: our eyes are always bigger than our stomachs (no matter how hard we try) in the holidays. So much baking, faffing and sighing, and then the hard, stale reality of excess that sits in the fridge for a week or two to silently judge us. Or, you know, it’s tough to work out portion ratio per person when everyone treats the holidays differently: some as a challenge of excess, and others as a season of torture and self-control so they don’t come out the other end in stretchy pants.

Moreso than my issue with clothes that don’t fit in January is the leftovers that get out of control. Waste makes me sad, because what we usually get rid of is actually edible. This is a little guide to help you plot what you can do with the never-ending crumbles of whatΒ you’ve been scoffing.
