I love a good fruit shortcake in the summer! Strawberry is the most popular, but blueberries are delicious in a shortcake as well! This one uses home made biscuits, and blueberries cooked to sweet perfection along with vegan coconut whipped cream for a delicious combination! It is the perfect way to showcase those Summer blueberries!
It is fun to make your own Easter candy at home, and that way you know exactly what goes into it! One of my favorites growing up was raspberry cream truffle eggs, so I like to make my own healthier version now! These are always a big hit at Easter, and they happen to be vegan and gluten free!
Many commercial white chocolate bars contain dairy and bad oils, but if you make your own at home, you can do so with quality ingredients and I think they taste even better! These ones happen to be vegan, and you can customize them with other flavors if you like! They would be perfect for upcoming Valentine’s Day!
If you want to make a dessert that is decadent and delicious, yet quick and easy for Valentine’s Day this year, these Pot de Cremes are the perfect option! They also happen to be vegan although you would never guess by tasting them because they taste like they contain cream. They come together in about 10 minutes and you could even make them the day before!
There is nothing like a warm mug of hot chocolate on a cold Winter day! So I like to make my own hot chocolate mix to have on hand. Most store bought ones contain dairy, but in this one I use coconut milk powder instead of milk powder to keep this one plant based. It is really delicious, and also good for gifting!
Tis the season for Christmas cookie baking! One of my favorites is always thumb print cookies. They are easy to make and so delicious! These ones are an almond butter cookie base with a raspberry pomegranate jam filling! They are festive, sweet and they happen to be vegan as well but you would never know by tasting them. These would make the perfect addition to your holiday cookie plate!
These muffins are the perfect weekend baking project! They are easy to make, healthier than traditional muffins, and really delicious, especially warm from the oven! If you would like to make them gluten free, just use Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour in place of the whole wheat pastry flour!
Pumpkin season is here! So why not make some delicious pumpkin spiced waffles! These are easy to make, they happen to be vegan and they are perfect for making on a weekend morning for brunch! Serve them with some toasted pecans and maple syrup for a Fall treat!
In the summer it is always nice to have desserts that don’t heat up the house to make. Ice cream is good, but if you want to go a bit healthier route, chia pudding is a great option! It has a texture similar to tapioca pudding, but doesn’t require any cooking and the chia seeds give you a good nutritional bang for your buck! This one has all of the flavors of German chocolate cake, but it is much better for you. Also, it is delicious and easy to make!
Peaches are at their best and most flavorful this time of year, so I love using them in desserts! These baked peaches are really easy to make, and they are kind of like a peach crumble except you have your own individual peach baked to tender perfection and there is no need to slice it up! These are so good served with some vegan whipped cream or vegan ice cream warm from the oven!
