DIY Recipes to get your favorite sweet treat: plastic free, wheat free, gluten free, palm oil free or vegan.
If I think back to the days where I bought my snacks in the store.... I bought them regularly because it has been so easy. Then one day I read about the problems the palm oil industry is forcing (deforestation, forest fires, orang utans loosing their home, dying, etc.) and I started to look at the ingredients lists and saw: palm oil everywhere. And when I started to eat less wheat, I saw: wheat everywhere, and when I started to quit plastic, yeah no single chance to buy sweet treats in the store anymore :D
It has been no problem for me actually. I always found chocolate without palm oil and wrapped in aluminium and paper. Or I found treats in zero waste stores when I happen to be close to one. I even could buy chocolate treats in chocolateries (special chocolate shops) where I could bring my own jar.
But I wanted to do more and I wanted to show others how easy we can actually make our own sweets without refined sugars, without palm oil, even totally vegan if you want.
Mostly it is not complicated, and if you can't find a certain ingredient plastic free, you can mostly use a similar ingredient. This counts for many other recipes you'll find online. Swap one ingredient you can't or don't want to eat with similar ones.
Like if you don't eat oats, use a mix of almond and desiccated coconut flour, use other syrups instead of honey,
So after I showed you a salty snack last time I posted a recipe (Tortilla wraps and tortilla chips) this time I will show you how I made alternative snicker bars.
