Jackpot makes Vegan Whole Wheat Spelt Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hello dear readers!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you soaked up some of that sunshine that came about on the weekend. I think I had a little bit too much sun on Saturday and am now sporting some severe sunburn marks resembling the colour of cooked lobster. I think I’ll stick to the shade for now ;p

After a weekend of eating to celebrate my last birthday in my 20’s which included one or two food comas, I thought I’d share a new recipe with you since I haven’t posted a recipe in a while. I’ve been experimenting with vegan muffins and vegan chocolate chips and wanted to make the perfect combination of a nutritious and hearty breakfast muffin but utilising some sweetness from some vegan chocolate chips I bought not long ago.

VEGAN WHOLE WHEAT SPELT CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of whole wheat spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tsps of cinnamon
  • 3/4 cups of almond milk (or any other type of soy milk)
  • 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (to make a vegan buttermilk)
  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup of mini vegan chocolate chips

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners or lightly oil a muffin pan if you are making the muffins without the liners and set aside.
  3. Combine all your dry ingredients together in a large bowl: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and then set aside.
  4. In a smaller bowl, create your vegan buttermilk by adding the apple cider vinegar to the almond milk. Let it sit for a few minutes until it curdles.
  5. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients to the vegan buttermilk mixture: pure maple syrup and melted coconut oil.
  6. Mix the wet ingredients together and then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl. Be careful not to overmix the batter.
  7. Fold in the mini vegan chocolate chips into the batter.
  8. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4’s full using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the muffin tops have browned slightly. I baked mine for 20 minutes as the muffins seemed to brown more quickly.
  10. Once the muffins have baked, cool the muffins on a wire rack.
  11. Enjoy!

I was really happy with how this recipe turned out, the muffin was slightly sweet from the hint of maple and the chocolate chips and the spelt flour gave it a nutty taste which I quite liked. A great on the go snack or something to have for breakfast when you don’t know what to eat.

I have been making a few variations of this muffin using mashed bananas for added moisture and sweetness which I have found works really well.

Definitely a recipe I will keep working on and experimenting with until I find the perfect balance but this experiment didn’t turn out too badly!

So readers, until next time!

JACKPOT visits Me and Art

Hello readers!

Hope you all are having a great week so far and thank goodness it’s Thursday meaning it’s nearly the end of the week! Looking forward to relaxing on the weekend with some good weather, good food and catching up with friends, celebrating a 1 month for a cute baby girl and of course some basketball in between!

Last weekend I wanted to grab a few things from Thomas Dux in Surry Hills as I do from time to time when I have a chance to stock up on baking ingredients and food for the week ahead. As Mr Muscles and I had not eaten breakfast at this point in time, I thought this would be a good opportunity to check out another café on my list. I love going to vegan cafes to try out the various foods on offer whether it be savoury or sweet food.

My top vegan places in Sydney at the moment are:

  • Sadhana Kitchen – great for breakfast and lunch and of course if you feel like indulging, they do some really great raw cakes
  • Nourishing Quarter – great little dinner place serving fusion Vietnamese food with a modern take on it – love their tofu and quinoa dumplings, their quinoa rice paper rolls and their noodle salad served with crispy tofu and they also do raw cakes here if you are feeling like something a bit more sweet after dinner

I have yet to try Earth to Table in Bondi Junction which I have read many great reviews and am keen to hopefully try this vegan place out on the weekend…blog will follow shortly after of course =)

I’m always worried about taking Mr Muscles to vegan places as I am always worried he will never be full or won’t like what is on offer on the menus. Mr Muscles however happily guided me along the way as we searched for the café. We ended up walking from Thomas Dux a few blocks down in Surry Hills and finally found the café after a nice walk through Surry Hills.

Me and Art is quite a small café with some seating provided outside the café, some tables and chairs found inside the café and out back in their courtyard. As it was a nice day, we decided to sit outside their courtyard and take in the nice weather. It was chilly but the sun was shining and it turned out to be a really nice day.

The café is known for their Japanese artwork which hangs inside the café. I didn’t get to take a picture of this unfortunately but will next time I visit. Apparently these pictures are not just for show and that they are available for purchase for anyone interested with new artwork coming in every few weeks. It’s a very quirky café with even tables that have been sourced by the owner from various places.

The one thing that stood out about this café were the friendly staff who were quick to assist wherever needed. Mr Muscles had no idea what he wanted to drink as he was feeling like some juice and one of the staff decided to make something on the whim from the flavours that Mr Muscles had told them he wanted. It was this attention to detail and their great service that really makes this café different to other cafes we have been to.

Juice

Mr Muscles Juice – I think this had beetroot, carrot, ginger, apple and other flavours (it was meant to be some sort of detox juice – it was very delicious!)

Avocado Toast

Mr Muscles’ meal: avocado on toast: avocado with special herbs & spices heaped on crunchy sourdough $9.00

Mr Muscles wasn’t feeling too good so decided to get something small to eat. We were both surprised at how generous they were with the avocado which was lovely, ripe and smooth. The sourdough had a nice taste to it with the toast still quite crunchy despite the amount of avocado layered on top of the toast. Mr Muscles really enjoyed the dish however didn’t really care for the ground turmeric which had been sprinkled over the top of the avocado. He felt it overpowered the taste of the avocado and so decided to remove this and eat the rest of it sans turmeric. All in all a very healthy and filling breakfast in which Mr Muscles left feeling rather full.

Buckwheat Pancakes

My meal: cocoa and cinnamon buckwheat pancakes topped with banana, berries, nuts & seeds served with maple syrup and shredded coconut $12.00

I ordered the pancakes as I really can’t say no to pancakes and the fact that these were healthy pancakes…this was already a win win situation to begin with. The pancakes were not as soft as I had imagined but rather a bit more dense as the buckwheat flavour was quite predominant. I couldn’t really taste the cocoa or cinnamon but I found the pancakes really lovely and not too heavy to eat that I managed to finish the whole dish. The banana and the nuts and seeds were a nice side to the dish as you got a bit of crunch, a bit of sweetness from the maple syrup and banana and a bit of tartness from the berries. I felt healthier just by eating this dish. I’ve tried recreating buckwheat pancakes at home but have never been successful. Now that I have tried these pancakes I am on a mission to try and create some wonderful buckwheat pancakes that don’t taste like rubber!

Mr Muscles and I left the café feeling full and satisfied. This café is definitely an up and coming café as I’m sure that more and more people will come to visit as they also serve lunch and if not for the dining experience then to view the lovely art hanging on the walls of the café. I know I’ll be back to try their nachos with tofu cashew sour cream and vegan cheese and of course their vegan pies which I have heard are really good!

Stay tuned for a recipe post…I know it’s been awhile but I’ll be posting one soon…

Here are my recent baking pictures:

Jackpot visits Three Blue Ducks

Hello readers!

It’s been awhile since I have visited one of the cafes on my list of cafes I have been wanting to visit. Whilst Three Blue Ducks is nowhere near new, I had been wanting to visit this cafe for ages now and finally a brunch date with Miss Baller and Mr Baller meant that we could all try this new cafe together. Miss Baller and I had talked about a brunch date at Three Blue Ducks for awhile now and finally we were able to pick a date to go which suited everyone.

We all arrived at the cafe around 10:30am on a Saturday and you could tell the cafe was already quite busy with most of the inside tables already full. We were in luck as there were a few tables outside that were available and so we were seated outside the cafe with a nice wooden table and wooden benches. The waitress offered Miss Baller and I a rug to share in case we got cold as it was quite chilly last weekend.

I liked the atmosphere of the cafe, everything seemed so calm and relaxing and Miss Baller and I were discussing how long it had been since we had last visited Bronte besides going to the beach back in our uni days. The cafe is nestled among some local shops and bakeries such as Iggy’s which is famous for their sourdough breads. There was an urban and modern vibe I picked up from the setting of the cafe with painted graffiti walls on the side of the cafe. The weather was very lovely that day and soon we began to feel the sun shining on us which was a nice change from the cold weather.

I had read the menu online and seen many photos on Instagram and various blogs and was keen to try their quinoa and fig bircher but come saturday I was ill with the flu and wanted something a bit warmer. There were more options on the menu once we sat down and read the menu. The online menu only shows a few dishes that they offer so I was pleased to see that there were a lot more options to choose from. I was so tempted to order the pancakes as I love all things pancakes but in the end settled for porridge.

Coddled Eggs

Mr Muscles’s: Coddled Eggs with Chorizo, Pulled Pork and Cannellini Baked Beans $21.50

Mr Muscles ordered the coddled eggs as he wanted to order something different to everyone. It was quite a heavy and rich meal as the chorizo itself was quite rich in flavour and the baked beans were also quite heavy. This is definitely a dish for someone who is feeling rather hungry. Mr Muscles felt so full by the end of the brunch but was satisfied with his meal choice.

Poached Eggs

Mr Baller’s: Poached Eggs, Spinach, Hollandaise Sauce and King Salmon $21.50

Mr Baller decided to order the poached eggs. This dish came with a nice plump serving of salmon which had been wonderfully cooked to create a crispy skin. Although I didn’t try this dish I assumed that he liked this dish as he managed to finish the whole dish. This is always the sign of a well executed dish.

Scrambled Eggs

Miss Baller’s: Scrambled Eggs with Black Sausage, Dill Cucumber Yoghurt Salad and Red Currant Jam $21.50

Miss Baller ordered the scrambled eggs and seemed to thoroughly enjoy her meal. She mentioned that the black sausage was quite flavourful and decadent. The meal itself was beautifully presented on the plate and the texture of the black sausage contrasted significantly against the tomatoes, red currants and the softness of the scrambled eggs.

Porridge

My meal: Black Rice, Tapioca, Quinoa Porridge with Poached Fruit, Yoghurt and Honey $16.00

I was very happy with what I ordered. The black rice, tapioca and quinoa combined so well together and for something that looked rich, it was actually quite light. The sourness from the yoghurt and the sweetness from the poached fruit and honey really paired well with the porridge. This was quite a generous serve as well so I didn’t end up finishing it all but it’s definitely something I would order again. Also this was just what I needed, something warm yet not too heavy. There were also bits of walnuts and nuts throughout the porridge which contrasted against the soft poached fruit. The poached pear was soft and subtly sweet against the tartness of the rhubarb. This meal was rather healthy with all the different grains that I felt good about eating this dish – something that tastes quite indulgent but that is healthy and good for you…definitely a win win situation…or at least I keep telling myself that ;P

I really want to come back and try the orange and yoghurt pancakes and of course the quinoa and fig bircher that I missed out on trying during this first visit. Definitely a cafe that I would love to come back to regularly.

Iggy's

Miss Baller and I couldn’t help but walk into Iggy’s to buy some bread. They had some sample sourdough which we tried and instantly we were swayed to buy some bread. Their sourdough was really delicious and I’m sure that if no one was looking I could have eaten most of the sample bowl. Miss Baller and I both ordered a poppyseed bagel to eat later and halved a sourdough bread stick. The bread is so addictive and I thoroughly enjoyed my bagel which I had for lunch the next day. I will be back for more bread…carbs are my weakness afterall ;P

I don’t have a photo of the bagel and bread we bought as I quickly demolished any evidence of the wonderfully addictive bread ;P

Once again great food and even better company – that’s what I call a good saturday =)

Thanks again Miss Baller and Mr Baller for an awesome brunch date yet again…where to next?

JACKPOT bakes vegan wheat bran banana muffins

Hello all!

Since it’s Wednesday and we are half way through the week, I thought I would post a recipe from one of my latest baking experiments. I made vegan oat bran muffins last time but was keen to try wheat bran this time as I really like the texture of the muffin that comes from utilising wheat bran in place of some of the flour in the muffin mixture.

I was really happy with the results of my muffin experiment as I kind of just improvised and experimented with what I thought would work well in the muffin and the flavour combinations. The resulting muffins were moist, packed full of goodness from the bananas, wheat bran, coconut oil and sweetened with coconut sugar and a dash of agave nectar. I was surprised at how well these muffins turned out so much so I know that I will be making these again and probably putting in other various fruits in the mixture such as blueberries or strawberries.

The muffins were very light and airy to my surprise as I thought that using wheat bran and wholemeal flour would lead to a really dense and heavy muffin but it was definitely the opposite once I bit into one of the muffins to trial them. The bananas give it a nice sweetness and you can taste a hint of coconut from the sugar and the oil which pairs nicely with the bananas.

I gave these muffins to my dad and sister to sample and I was surprised at how quickly my dad scoffed down the muffin. My sister on the otherhand seemed to think it was a bit too wheaty for her liking as she is used to eating things a lot more sweeter and a lot more indulgent when it comes to desserts and muffins. But the fact that she finished the muffin, means it can’t have been all that bad. I had to stop myself from eating more after I trialled the first muffin after it came out of the oven as it was way past my bedtime…curse my late night baking…I understand now where all these extra calories are coming from ;P

So onto the recipe….

JACKPOT’s Vegan Wheat Bran Banana Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Wheat Bran (you can use oat bran if you can’t find any wheat bran)
  • 1 and 1/4 cup of Wholemeal Spelt Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1-2 tsp of cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • 1 cup of vegan buttermilk (1 cup of almond milk or soy milk with 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar)
  • 2 tbsps of coconut oil (I used a bit less as my bananas were quite large and so I subbed the bananas for some of the oil)
  • 1/4 cup of organic coconut sugar
  • 1 dash of agave nectar (can add more if you want your muffins to be sweeter)

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celscius.
  2. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners or coat your muffin tray with oil if you are not using any liners and set aside.
  3. Add the dry ingredients into a large bowl except for the coconut sugar (wheat bran, wholemeal spelt flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt) and combine with a wooden spoon. Set aside.
  4. Mash your bananas in a smaller bowl with a fork until relatively smooth. You can leave a few pieces in there if you want your muffins to have some banana pieces when you bite into it.
  5. Make your vegan buttermilk by measuring a cup of almond milk and adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Whisk gently and then let it curdle for a few minutes.
  6. Once the vegan buttermilk has been set, you can add the buttermilk mixture into the mashed bananas bowl.
  7. Add in your coconut oil, coconut sugar and agave nectar into the wet mixture (you can always add more or less sugar depending on your taste buds)
  8. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine with a wooden spoon being carefully not to overmix the batter.
  9. Using an icecream scoop or a spoon, spoon in the mixture into the muffin liners about 3/4’s full.
  10. Place the muffin tray into the oven and bake for around 20-25 minutes or until you see the muffin tops turn a nice golden brown colour.
  11. Take the muffins out of the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  12. You can freeze the rest of the muffins for an easy go to snack for breakfast or when you are feeling peckish.
  13. Enjoy!

JACKPOT bakes vegan baked banana donuts

Hello readers!

I know I have been a bit slow with the posting of entries but work, basketball and baking have really taken up all my time…where does all the hours go in a day? I never seem to keep up and I am lacking a lot of sleep as a result but hopefully in time I can go back to regularly posting. I appreciate your patience dear readers!

I wanted to post some pictures from a baking experiment from a few weeks ago. I have made many baked donuts over the years from a chocolate variety using applesauce and raw cacao powder to a vegan Krispy Kreme style donut. I wanted to bake a batch of baked banana donuts as I had experimented with a batch a year ago and wanted to see whether I could make another variation this time around.

There is no recipe yet as I am still perfecting the donuts and I was surprised that my donuts turned out more like banana bread donuts being a bit more dense in texture than what I was aiming for. They tasted great though still and Mr Muscles practically devoured the whole batch of them so I’m sure that they weren’t at all too bad. I used whole wheat spelt flour and used quite a bit of cinnamon so that the cinnamon and banana flavour could be tasted in the donut. Cinnamon and banana work so well and the smell is so heavenly when you devour the donut bit of bit when its nice and hot.

I’m definitely going to keep experimenting until I find the perfect balance. I tried to keep the oil to a very small amount and I used coconut oil for this batch but next time I might try using applesauce and remove the oil completely. The texture was also probably a bit too dense as I used quite a few bananas as I was being greedy and really wanted my donuts to have that banana flavour.

I ended up baking a small donut batch and a regular size donut batch. I love eating the small donuts as I feel less guilty eating a lot more of them than the regular size ones…but hey that’s just me ;P

Speaking of bananas, I have been trying to perfect a vegan banana bread recipe without the end product being too moist. Each time I make a vegan banana bread, the end result is a very moist banana bread lacking texture from the flour that is reminiscent of those wonderful buttery and sugary banana breads you get at cafes. I wanted to mirror this but in a more healthy way replacing the oil and sugar but unfortunately when you keep subbing various ingredients into the batter, the end result is never quite what you expect at times. I will definitely keep experimenting and hopefully come up with better results.

Here are the photos from my vegan baked banana donuts experiment:
