Epic Vegan Chocolate Tart

Epic Vegan Chocolate Tart

As vegans, it can be difficult when you get invited around to someones house for dinner. Aside from feeling like you’re making life difficult, it can also be concerning that the person hosting doesn’t completely understand veganism. Do they know the difference between a vegetarian […]

Vegan Cherry and Raisin Danish Pastry

Vegan Cherry and Raisin Danish Pastry

So we’re back with yet another delicious vegan pastry recipe. Here at The Rose & Bean, we love to show that the only thing difference between a meat-eater diet and a vegan diet, is the cruelty. We still get to eat everything we ate before, […]

Vegan Vanilla Custard & Almond Crowns

Vegan Vanilla Custard & Almond Crowns

Since figuring out how to create croissants, a new world has opened up to us. There are so many pastries out there that use croissant pastry as the base, that now we can run wild.

Vegan Chocolate Orange Muffins

Vegan Chocolate Orange Muffins

I love muffins, but I haven’t had one in forever. Muffins and brownies are just my favourite (chocolate of course), and I’ve missed them since going vegan.

Wonderbites

Wonderbites

Maybe about a year ago, I was around at my grandparents house, looking through some of my Nan’s old recipes that she had cut out from magazines. There were some delicious looking ones in there. As I was looking through, I came across a handwritten recipe […]

Homemade Vegan Easter Eggs

Homemade Vegan Easter Eggs

Easter is always one of my favourite times of year, because of my unhealthy chocolate obsession. Every Easter I’d get way too many Easter eggs, and would try and eat them all on that one day, so that I wasn’t being haunted by chocolate for […]

Vegan Blueberry Glazed Doughnuts

Vegan Blueberry Glazed Doughnuts

Everybody loves a doughnut, right? They’re the perfect treat to end a long day. And actually, they’re surprisingly easy to make. If you’re a long time follower of my blog, you’ll know that I’ve done a doughnut recipe before, my ‘best ever doughnuts‘, and if you’ve […]

Vegan Rocky Roads

Vegan Rocky Roads

I’ve made these rocky roads a couple of times and toyed with the idea of putting them on here. They just seemed so simple that it didn’t seem worth it. However, on taking some spare ones to work and everyone absolutely loving them, I felt […]

Vegan Crêpes with Grand Marnier Caramel Sauce

Vegan Crêpes with Grand Marnier Caramel Sauce

It’s nearly pancake day, arguably one of the better holidays, which means PANCAKES. Honestly, I love them so much but don’t actually have them nearly enough. So in honour of stuff-your-face-with-pancakes day, I decided to make some vegan crêpes.

Peanut butter honeycomb cheesecake

Peanut butter honeycomb cheesecake

I was watching the food channel the other day and someone was making a cheesecake. Whilst it has never been one of my favourite desserts (I find it just too rich), I decided I wanted to make my own vegan version, because it’s something I […]

Vegan Christmas Tree Chelsea Buns (Vegan Christmas Series)

Vegan Christmas Tree Chelsea Buns (Vegan Christmas Series)

OK I’m obsessed with Christmas baking at the moment. Usually I’m a die-hard chocolate fan, but at Christmas you just can’t beat all those delicious mixed spices and dried fruit. Any other time of year and I just wouldn’t be interested, but come December and […]

Vegan Mince Pies (Vegan Christmas Series)

Vegan Mince Pies (Vegan Christmas Series)

Nothing says Christmas quite like mince pies, and now just because I’m vegan doesn’t mean I need to miss out! Having seen mincemeat sitting in the local supermarket, I decided I wanted to make my own for some perfect Christmas vegan mince pies.

Chocolate Mousse Bombes – 2 Ways (Vegan Christmas Series)

Chocolate Mousse Bombes – 2 Ways (Vegan Christmas Series)

No Christmas is complete if you don’t regret every decision you’ve ever made by the time you’ve finished eating. OK, I know it’s not ALL about food, but this is a vegan food blog, so that’s what we’re focusing on.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cups

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cups

I love dark chocolate. I’ve built up my tolerance to the point where I can quite happily eat an entire bar of 85% dark chocolate. I never really get when people say that they only eat one square of dark chocolate because it satisfies their cravings and […]

Raspberry and White Chocolate Toasties

Raspberry and White Chocolate Toasties

Raspberries and white chocolate are one of the most perfect combinations, which is what makes these toasties so delicious. If you have a toastie maker this is a great way to use it and make something a bit different.

Unicorn Honeycomb Lollipops

Unicorn Honeycomb Lollipops

Has anyone else seen the recent craze for ‘unicorn’ style food? Unicorn bark for example. It basically just consists of mixing loads of pretty colours together and adding some sprinkles and glitter to whatever you’re making.

Chocolate, Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate, Peanut Butter Banana Bread

It’s been an odd week and so I’ve not been cooking as much as I would have liked too. I didn’t have much to do today, Sam was working and my family were out, so I decided I would take the opportunity to do some […]

Giant Jaffa Cake

Giant Jaffa Cake

Another day, another dessert. I do just love cooking and baking, so even though I keep wanting to make healthy desserts and food, I end up getting sucked into making ‘bad’ chocolately desserts instead.

Death by Chocolate – Dessert Nachos

Death by Chocolate – Dessert Nachos

Today I woke up deciding I really just need to focus a bit more on my gym training and on my diet, cleaning it up slightly and staying focused. I went for a run, had a healthy breakfast and lunch and did a HIIT workout […]

The Best Vegan Doughnuts You’ll Ever Eat

The Best Vegan Doughnuts You’ll Ever Eat

Yeah so the title is quite a big statement, the BEST vegan doughnuts ever? But seriously, they’re so delicious, I would say they really are the best vegan doughnuts you’ll ever eat.

Deconstructed Banoffee Pie

Deconstructed Banoffee Pie

So Sunday is cheat day. Although if we’re going to be completely honest, ‘cheat day’ usually ends up as ‘cheat weekend’ as my healthy eating tends to wane from Friday night, getting increasingly worse until Sunday evening. Sunday is also the day I meal prep my […]
