Soft, gooey, buttery, sugary, pull-apart raisin cinnamon rolls. Even though this recipe is refined sugar-free and dairy-free it is still all the buttery, sugary goodness we were craving and not healthy at all.

If you are vegan, try our Vegan Easter Hot Cross Cinnamon Rolls , or for something with a little less sugar try our Vegan, Cinnamon, Date and Orange Buns. These recipes are also great for easter...

Most people don't have the slightest idea what a soda float is, and that's so sad. A soda float is the glorious marriage of a glass of cold soda (my favourite was creme soda) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. When the ice cream starts to melt it makes this fizzy deliciousness. This can be enjoyed with a...

Celebration of warm festive spices and rooibos for a South African flare. Just to be clear it doesn't have to be Christmas to whip up this cake because it's good all year round.

Another reason I believe waffles trump pancakes is because they're the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Debate closed. So let's get waffling! Gluten-free and vegan waffles that are crispy? This used to a myth in the TGR kitchen until now, my friends. And with summer being in full swing what...

With Medjool dates, maca and mesquite for a hint of salted caramel. In general, I'm more of a sweet tooth when it comes to breakfast. I also always try and keep it healthy and balanced especially in the week. This toasted coconut smoothie is the perfect combination of delicious and nutritious. Let's get blending! Ingredient break down I chose to use pea protein because I prefer the taste to whey protein, but you can use any protein of your choosing; vanilla, chai, maybe even chocolate for extra decadence.
