My name is Lara, and I am a passionate food and lifestyle blogger based in Bern, Switzerland. Never ever have I thought that I would launch a blog. It all started when I learned that I really like to experiment in the kitchen. I love to create new desserts, sometimes baked, sometimes raw. There are so many possibilities. I am trying to make this world a better place by eating a plant-based diet with enough chocolatae. I am hoping that my recipes can inspire you to give this lifestyle a try, by doing so, you can truly change this world we live in.
While working at Google I found my love for programming and Social Media. I proudly support the Django Girls (Girls who Code) program. Further, I recently tapped into other more private and delicate topics of blogging. I speak about uncomfortable things. Blogging for me is not just putting up content that people like. It is challenging the people. It means connecting with readers. It’s connecting with brands. It’s recipe testing and it’s researching in depth. It’s photographing. It’s writing. It’s sometimes something that drives me mad.
And, quite frankly, it’s everything to me.
With the project Vanillacrunnch, I like to bring you a little bit closer to the magical world of vegan desserts, lifestyle, sport, tech and my travels. I am not very good at describing myself and therefore, I picked some quotes from very lovely people that you can read below.

This gorgeous hot chocolate is made by my lovely friend, Lara@vanillacrunnch! My adoration for Lara goes all the way back to when I first started IG about a year ago. Her page and blog always left an impression on me – first it was her gorgeous photos – styled so perfectly that you felt like you were gazing the pages of Bon Appetite, then we became IG friends and gushed over our love for chocolate and smoothie bowls, and then earlier this year I got to meet the beautiful Lara when she came to visit San Francisco. My goodness did she blow me away. Lara is an incredibly kind and generous woman (and gorgeous 🙈!) with an infectious smile❤ We spent hours exploring the city and it was so humbling to see her soak in and fall in love with San Francisco. I got to see a side of Lara that was so loving and real. After that day I felt like I’ve known Lara my whole life, as if we were school mates. She’s one of a kind and I couldn’t be happier for all her amazing success 🎉I love you sweetie and can’t wait to see you again! –
Ah, HEALTHY chocolate Tim Tams! Did you know there was such a thing? These are the brainchild of food and lifestyle blogger Lara@vanillacrunnch !! 🌟Brilliantly she created a healthy version of this traditional dessert that includes coconut oil, a flax seed SO Lara! Follows the path not taken. And nothing stops this girl. Her passion for right, for helping her visitors with anything from body image to phony messaging, is coming through loud and clear. One visit to her IG might actually tell you a lot about yourself! 🌟One thing I so love about Lara is her zest for life, it is contagious – her bio picture on her blog says it all. 🌟And her desserts? One of her many missions I know is to convince people that desserts can be good for you if made with the right ingredients. And she generously provides multiple intelligently crafted recipes like the one for these Tim Tams to help further this mission on her blog and IG.
This girl @vanillacrunnchis the most inspirational and beautiful human I’ve met on this planet. She is is always her pure self and spreads love in this world with her delicious recipes and amazing blogposts. She inspires me everyday to try out new things, adventures and to keep going💪🏻Never give up! You will get there! This girl is someone who doesn’t care what people think, she is just “her” and that is what I admire most about her. She doesn’t pretend to be anyone else. No!! She loves herself and tries to convince other people to do the same – self love. And to be conscious of your own believes❤ We all love you
