Instructions
  1. Whip the eggs using a high-powered blender (or whip by hand in a large bowl). Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased cake pan.
  2. Bake at 325°F until a fork comes out clean, approximately 30 minutes for the square cake or 25 minutes for two smaller rounds.
  3. Cool before decorating. Top with coconut whipped cream, strawberries, and pretty flowers.
Recipe Notes

*Make your own beans—they taste even better! Soak 2/3 cup of beans overnight, rinse well, and cook according to the instructions on the package. Butter beans or white navy beans taste the best.

Instructions
  1. In your food processor, blend cauliflower into smaller pieces. In a pot, boil enough water to lightly cook your cauliflower (about 4 minutes). Add a little Himalayan salt to your cooking water. Lift cooked cauliflower into a strainer and using a wooden spoon, press down on the cauliflower and drain out the excess water. Place into a bowl and add remaining ingredients. With your hands, work the mixture until well mixed. Place on parchment paper and spread out until about ½ inch thick. Cook on a flat baking tray at 400° C for 30 minutes or until the top is beginning to brown.

  6. Once you have a cooked cauliflower crust, place either pesto or a tomato-based sauce, then, in order: cheese (if using), chopped veggies (stinging nettles, dandelion leaves, kale, Swiss chard, mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.), sausages (if using). Gosh, pineapple—there’s no end to what you can create!
  7. Cook at 395° C for about 20 minutes.

Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients except raisins or chocolate chips in food processor.
  2. Stir in raisins or chocolate chips.
  3. Line a tray with parchment paper and with a spoon dab about 3 Tbsp of the mixture onto the tray. Leave about 1 inch between each cookie.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes
Recipe Notes

These cookies are best served once they have cooled slightly, right from the oven. For extra pleasure, add a dab of real organic butter. To reheat, use your toaster oven (NEVER the microwave) and toast for a few minutes until they reach the perfect temperature. They will keep for about 1 week in the fridge. For time saving ideas, bake a few batches and freeze the extras!
