Spring Rolls + Peanut Sauce. Whole Food Ingredients Only.

This peanut sauce though. Yum. !

I made these the weekend my beautiful friend Ally came to visit. She LOVED them! These rolls are STUFFED with nothing but veggies and whole plant foods in all their glory. I love this peanut sauce recipe because it tastes BETTER than the processed ish without all the preservatives, colors, oils, salt, sugar, or anything that might make me, you know, depressed! Only happiness fuel for every cell here ladies and gentlemen!

The Red Velvet:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained) or 3/4 to 1 cup cooked chickpeas (If using dried chickpeas: rinse and soak dried chickpeas- saturate them fully in filtered water and cover.  Place in the refrigerator overnight.  Pour soaked chickpeas with soaking water into a pot and bring to a boil.  Once brought to a boil, reduce heat to medium and let simmer for at least an hour, add water as necessary.  Rinse and measure 3/4-1 cup.)lovebeets
  • 1/2 C almond butter (or any nut butter- I prefer unsalted)
  • 1/3 C natural sweetener (coconut nectar, agave, maple syrup, raw honey, try dates! 🙂 )
  • 1/3 C gluten free baking flour (try oatmeal, or whatever flour you like!)
  • 3 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/2 tsp humalayan pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking sodagfbakinflour
  • 1/3 C vegan carob or chocolate chips, or cacao nibs- might want to add more sweetener if using bitter nibs!)
  • 2 Tbs chopped walnuts
  • 3 Tbs beet juice 
  • 1 cooked beet
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (vanilla flavor is nice, I like almond milk)
  • 1-2 Tbs golden flax meal (dissolved in beet juice and non-dairy milk

The Rocky Road:

  • 1 T natural sweetener (optional- if using cacao nibs / unsweetened chips maybe)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional- if using sweetened chocolate chips, or to taste)

  • 1 T cacao nibs, carob, or chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line mini muffin tray with muffin liners (I really like the brand “If You Care”)
  2. In a food processor, add all ingredients except the chopped walnuts, and chocolate chips until batter is smooth.  Fold in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.  Super delicious to nom with a spoon just like this!!!
  3. Spoon about 1 Tbs of batter into each muffin liner.  Combine rocky road ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.  Dollop each lovecake with a touch of rocky road.  Bake for about 20 minutes.  May look underdone- but rather be moist and ooey than dried out! Also- no scary ingredients in here to worry about being undercooked! Can be eaten raw! 😀
  4. Let cool for about 10 minutes before indulging!
