Urban Tips: Blueberry Lavender Dessert Cups

unspecified-1.jpg

Our sweet tooth has been really nagging us this week. Maybe it’s the pre-Halloween candy cravings! Either way, a dessert had to be made. If you’re anything like us, you’ve got lots of empty or almost empty jam jars lying around. Instead of just tossing them, reuse them! They are great vessels for all kinds of knick knacks, snacks, dried foods, etc. But we love them for perfectly portioned desserts!

We layered our jars with mascarpone cheese, Blueberry Lavender jam, graham cracker crumbles, and berries! It’s a wonderful balance of rich and creamy, and sweet, but not too sweet. Make a bunch to last the week and store in the fridge or just make one to enjoy tonight!

Vegan Caramel Apple Waffles

Today we had our own little holiday morning in the kitchen when we made these Vegan Caramel Apple Waffles! They are such a decadent dessert style waffle and we all felt a little bit fancy eating them! I had never made waffles before so I wasn't sure what to expect. It turns out the entire process took around 20 minutes! So much easier than I had anticipated! Check out the recipe below to see how we made them.

To create the Vegan Caramel Apple Waffles you'll need:

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tb sugar in the raw or agave
  • 4 ts baking powder
  • 1/4 ts salt
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tb apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup of Caramel Apple Sea Salt Jam
  • Non-stick spray

Instructions:

  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. In a bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a small bowl add together almond milk, vinegar, and vegetable oil and stir.
  4. Slowly pour wet ingredients into dry ingredient bowl and stir until everything is well combined. Note: Waffle batter looks a little chunky and that's ok.
  5. Next add the Caramel Apple Sea Salt Jam and stir to combine.
  6. Spray the inside of your waffle iron with non-stick spray.
  7. Pour in 1/3 of waffle batter and close to cook for about 5 minutes or until your waffle iron signifies it's done! Continue until batter is finished. Should make 3 waffles. 
  8. We topped ours with chocolate sauce, extra jam, fruit and powdered sugar! Enjoy!
