It's no secret that we can't get enough of fruit in this office, our current favourites are very much inspired by the changing weather. That's right! Autumn has arrived and with it comes a whole new variety of seasonal fruit. That and one of our slightly less known obsession with sweet treats (haha who are we kidding?!?) has lead us to write this blog post. So, here are three of our favourite dessert recipes starring fall fruit.


Oven Roasted Figs on Greek Yogurt


What you will need:
2 figs
1 tablespoon of pistachios
1 tablespoon of almond flakes
1 drizzle honey or maple syrup
1 sprinkle of cinnamon

1 cup of greek yogurt
1 drizzle of honey or maple syrup
1 teasoon of lemon zest

How to make it:
Half the figs and place them on a baking tray. Drizzle them with honey or maple syrup, add the pistachios and or almond flakes on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Place into an oven at 180°C and leave in for about 15-20 minutes until they are soft and caramelized. In the meantime ad some lemon zest to the Greek Yogurt to give the dish some extra falvour. Once the figs are deliciously gooey take them out of the oven and place them on top of your yogurt. If you want add some extra honey/maple syrup and nuts on top. Now all that's left to so is enjoy! P.S. We fig-ure with a bit of added granola this makes a delicious breakfast option :) P.P.S. If you are looking for more breakfast ideas why not check out last weeks blog post?!? 


Plum and Blackberry Cobbler

What you will need:
4 cups of plums
1 cup of blackberries
1/4 cup of coconut sugar organic cane sugar
1 tablespoon of flour

1/4 cup of oats
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of coconut sugar or organic cane sugar
4 teaspoons of coconut oil or butter
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of orange zest

How to make it:
To start of pit and quarter the plums and place them into a bowl. Add the blackberries, sugar and flour to the bowl and give it all a good mix. In a separate bowl combine the oats, flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon and orange zest. No go ahead and using your hands blend all the ingredients  together until they combine and you are left with crumbles. Once that is done grab a oven proof dish, poor in the plums and berries and then sprinkle the oat mixture on top. Then pop into the oven for 25-30 minutes at 180°C until the fruit has softened and the top is golden brown. Take out and leave to cool slightly before starting to indulge :)



Chia Seed Pudding with Pear inspired by Sorted Food

What you will need:
1 ripe pear
150 ml almond milk
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of maple syrup

1 hand full of roasted or caramelized pecans
1/4 apple
1/4 pear
1 sprinkle of cinnamon
1 drizzle of maple syrup (if you like it sweet)

How to make it:
This recipe is so so easy to make. First chop up the pear and put it into a food processor to turn it into a puree. Then pour it into a bowl and add the almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and maple syrup.  Mix well until everything is combined and cover the bowl before leaving it to rest in the fridge for 2-3 hours or over night. This way you can either have this dish as dessert or grab it in the morning as a quick and healthy breakfast. Once the chia seeds have had time to soak up all the liquids you will be left with a yummy pudding. Top it with slices of apple and pear as well as a hand full of pecans and a sprinkle of cinnamon. At this point those of you with a sweet tooth can drizzle a little bit more maple syrup on top and then you can all start spooning away :) This is definitely a vegan autumn favourite of ours!
