After two friends of mine highly recommended the german cookbook “Vegan For Fit” by Attila Hildmann, a recent bestseller in Germany, I finally bought my own copy. And I have to say that so far I’m really impressed by the recipes that I tried. Who ever thought that cooking with mainly vegetables and nuts would be boring, will be proven wrong. The dishes are exciting and super tasty. And there is even a section for the healthy sweet tooth. No refined sugar or white flour is being used and yet it’s really satisfying. There is one sweet recipe that I like in particular. I already made it several times and adapted it a little to my liking by adding more cinnamon and replacing the agave sirup with maple sirup.
And because I’m sure that you would like it too, I want to share the recipe with you today.
