The HBC Cookbook is back for a very special and love-filled 2019 Valentines Day special! Following the delicious recipes from the community in 2018 , 2017 and 2016 we bring you the latest treats from our love birds.
Raw Coconut Raspberry Bars
The gorgeous Sophie of Oat So Delicious shares her equally gorgeous raw, gluten free and vegan Coconut Raspberry Bars. Vibrant berries make these raw bakes eye-catching and delicious with a simple date and nut base and a thick chocolate topping. They are smooth and creamy, deliciously fruity and perfect for sharing (or hoarding!!) this Valentines Day. Make sure you read Sophie’s intro all about showing a little self-love, too, which you can find here.
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Nothing says Happy Valentines like a red velvet cupcake, and Amy’s recipe is easy to follow and delivers a light and fluffy cupcake. The Baking Nutritionist has decorated hers with a sweet buttercream icing and sprinkles for a special treat for yours truly. These cupcakes rely on basic ingredients which you probably have to hand already! Find the recipe here.
Valetines Day Ombre Cakes
Anne describes these vegan ombre cakes an edible painting and it’s easy to see why with varying shades of pink and red. These cakes are also gluten free and easy to make with simple ingredients to put you in the loving mood. The cakes are a feast for all the senses and will leave you with a few cakes left to enjoy after February 14th, too! You can find the recipe on the Anne Travel Foodie blog.
Double Chocolate Madeleines
Ciarra makes the tricky madeleine look and sound very simple with her delicious looking recipe. The Peanut Butter Plus Chocolate food blogger has created double chocolate madeleines dipped in dark chocolate and topped with crunchy pistachios and freeze dried raspberries. Best of all, these double chocolate cookies have absolutely no sugar added making them gluten free, dairy free and sugar free! You can find the full recipe here.
