Gluten Free Carrot Carrot Waffle SandwichesBy DesireeThese waffles are absolutely divine, they are soft, moist and taste like actual carrot cake! They are gluten free, filling and protein rich! I used a blend of green banana flour and chickpea flour for the waffles and it provided the best consistency.

Apricot Pudding PiesBy DesireeIn this recipe there is no additional sugar besides what’s in the dried apricots. There’s no dairy, nuts and gluten. It’s all plant based. This dessert is inspired by the flavors of India. It's also inspired by a fruit which really doesn’t get a lot of attention but is packed with loads of nutrients….the almighty apricot. I’m really happy as to how this recipe came out. The pudding is creamy and the crust has great texture due to the quinoa flakes and chickpea flour. The overall results is a delicious, nutritious, sweet treat to be eaten anytime of the day.
