Vegan Zucchini Bread

Vegan Zucchini Bread PinAmelia loves making dessert breads and I love eating them! And this Vegan Zucchini Bread is not exception!

We don’t make breads like this or our delicious Vegan Pumpkin Bread very often because we tend to eat them too quickly. But it’s a nice treat once in awhile, especially when we score some fresh organic zucchini.

Be sure to drain off as much moisture as you can from the zucchini. You can always add extra moisture with almond milk, but you don’t want the batter to be too runny.

This bread makes a nice dessert, but you can also eat it for breakfast with a little fruit or vegan yogurt.

Vegan Beet Brownies

Vegan Beet Brownies PinWe used to buy Vegan Beet Brownies far more than we should have at Beet Box Bakery & Cafe, a vegan bakery that used to be walking distance from us when we lived in Uptown. If you’re in Denver, you have to try this place. They have amazing bread, sandwiches and desserts.

One day, instead of walking to Beet Box, Amelia decided to make some Vegan Beet Brownies from scratch and boy were they delicious. These brownies are so moist and chocolatey that you might have to put them behind lock and key or they won’t last a day!

Beet puree makes a great binder so it’s a good egg replacer in baked desserts. It’s also naturally sweet, so combined with the maple syrup in this recipe, you get a very rich brownie.

If you don’t have a non-stick baking pan,  you may want to use a little cooking spray or oil to grease the pan. Just spray a tiny amount down the middle and use your fingers to spread it over the bottom and sides. Or, put a tiny amount on a paper towel as shown in the video and use it to lightly coat the baking dish.

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding PinThis Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is a delicious dessert or snack to satisfy your chocolate cravings. It’s also a good source of Omega 3’s from the chia seeds.

Most pudding has gelatin in it, which isn’t vegan. You can substitute gelatin with guar gum, but this recipe doesn’t need it. The chia seeds absorb the almond milk and form a gelatinous texture. It needs to sit for a least 3 hours for the absorption to happen so plan accordingly.

You can top it with some fresh raspberries or a dollop of vegan whipped cream, or just eat it plain like I do.

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies PinThese Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are perfect for your holiday parties. The sweetness of the chocolate combined with the peppermint give them a refreshing mouth feel. The stark contrast between the dark brown chocolate cookie and the snow white sugar is visually stimulating. They truly are finger licking good.

One trick we learned from My Darling Vegan is to dip the cookies in granulated sugar before the powdered sugar. Somehow, that creates a barrier between the moist cookie dough and the powdered sugar so it doesn’t melt into the dough. Very ingenious.

PLAN AHEAD: The dough needs to be refrigerated for 4 hours before you can bake it. Or, you can also put the dough in the freezer for 1 hour if you’re short on time. We discovered this trick when we forgot to plan ahead while making these cookies with our niece. Necessity is the mother of invention 🙂

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake PinThis vegan gluten free chocolate cake is moist, chocolatey and delicious. There is no way you can tell this cake is both gluten free and vegan. It ranks right up there with the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had.

If gluten isn’t an issue for you, you can probably use regular flour, but that’s not how we made it so we can’t attest to how it’ll turn out.

Using top-notch ingredients is important for any recipe, but none more-so than when baking. You can literally taste and see the difference so spend the extra money and buy high-quality, organic ingredients for your baking recipes. Especially if you’re going to feed them to non-vegans.
