Vegan Sweet Treats

Full flavor – with only plant-based ingredients and zero added sugar

Lately I have tried more and more recipes without animal products and additional sugar. This is a great favor not only for yourself, but also for the environment. However, I still need a sweet snack every now and then. In the following, I show you three recipes I created myself, which are in no way inferior to conventional sweet snacks in terms of taste.

Benefits for Your Health

The sweet snacks are full of healthy ingredients that give you numerous benefits in addition to the great taste.

I chose dates as the first base of all snacks. They provide you with a lot of power for an extended workout session due to their natural fructose content. Also, they contain a lot of fiber, which has a positive effect on your digestion. In addition, dates are packed with minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. Furthermore, they are rich in B vitamins.

Another great benefit is the amino acid tryptophan, which acts as a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin – which simply translated means that dates have an impact on your mood, performance and well-being.

I used ground almonds as the second base of the snacks. These have really good nutritional values in contrast to the white flour used in most conventional snacks.

Unlike other sources of fat, almonds are even said to be able to lower cholesterol and strengthen the heart health.

The third base used is also a vegetable fat source. I have picked coconut flakes here. These give the snacks a slightly exotic touch.

They are full of minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, copper, iron and phosphorus.

As you can see, the snacks are not only delicious, but also provide you with an absolute added value. In addition, the environment is less polluted, because no animal products were used.

Let’s go – I look forward to your feedback!
