I love the oriental blend of Chinese five spice. I first encountered it in sweet treats when I made Gwyneth Paltrow’s muffins in her first healthy living book for Goop. They were delicious and I’ve been experimenting with it ever since. This is a really healthy treat packed with healthy spices – cinnamon, star anise, fennel, cloves and Sichuan pepper. 

Having been gluten free for a few years I’d pretty much got desserts down to a fine art but then I added being vegan and refined sugar free into the mix and the whole world changed. 

I can quite see why restaurants serve fruit salad or sorbet as the vegan dessert option but honestly there are times when that just doesn’t cut it. For a special occasion I like to make something that has had some thought put into it and this salted caramel nut butter dessert is just that.
