Vegan Garlic Bread

Vegan Garlic Bread PinThis Vegan Garlic Bread recipe doesn’t get much easier. Slice up a baguette, spread some vegan butter on the slices and sprinkle with a little garlic salt and dried parsley. It’s fast, simple and delicious.

If you’re looking for a oil-free option, Dr. John McDougall recommends coating the bread with fat-free Italian salad dressing instead of vegan butter. We haven’t tried it this way, and usually avoid prepackaged salad dressings, but a lot of people swear by it. Here’s a video that shows you how to make it.

You can also use aquafaba in place of vegan butter for a low-fat whole-food alternative. Aquafaba is the juice from your can of chickpeas. Make some Vegan Hummus as an appetizer and save the juice to baste on your bread. We use this technique for grilled sandwiches and our Oil Free Grilled Plantains, too.

For a cheesy flavor, sprinkle with some nutritional yeast before baking.

Vegan Garlic Bread goes well with our Vegan Spaghetti Sauce with Spaghetti Squash, Vegan Tomato Cream Sauce Spaghetti with Kale or as a simple appetizer.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesThese delicious Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are moist and delicious. It’s impossible to eat just one. They disappear in handfuls.

If you’re like me and you love pumpkin, these really hit the spot. While pumpkin is traditionally a fall/holiday ingredient, there’s nothing stopping you from eating pumpkin all year long.

Amelia is the baker in the house, so I beg and plead with her to make delicious pumpkin recipes all the time. I’m sure she’s sick of pumpkin by now, but I’ve loved it all my life and don’t need an excuse to eat it.

A perfect day for me is capped off with a couple of these amazing Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Vegan Cornbread

Vegan Cornbread PinThis Vegan Cornbread recipe is the best cornbread ever, vegan or otherwise! It’s moist, flavorful and delicious! And it only takes a few minutes to prepare.

We used Bow & Arrow Yellow Cornmeal and it turned out great. Amelia veganized the recipe on the back of the cornmeal bag by replacing the egg with Ener-G Egg Replacer, the butter with Original Earth Balance Butter and the milk with Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk.

I really have no idea why anyone cooks the old way anymore when you can eat something this delicious without any cholesterol or cruelty. If you don’t tell people this recipe is vegan, they won’t know. In fact, they will probably ask for the recipe. It’s that freaking good!

Vegan Snickerdoodles

Vegan SnickerdoodlesWhen I was a kid, mom often made snickerdoodles for our family during the holiday season and I particularly enjoyed the cinnamon-y taste and soft texture when they were fresh from the oven. These vegan snickerdoodles are just as good as mom’s, but without the butter and eggs.

If you have a holiday party, work party, church gathering, family or friends visiting…you can easily pass these vegan snickerdoodles off as non-vegan and no one will be the wiser. They have crispy edges with soft centers ensuring these cinnamon sugar cookies will be a big hit with everyone.

These snickerdoodles are so good, I just power right through my cinnamon allergy and eat them anyway. Luckily for me, they only cause the inside of my cheeks to swell up, but it goes away after a few hours. Totally worth it!

We use Earth Balance Organic Vegan Butter, but you’ll need to use the Earth Balance Soy Free variety to make these vegan snickerdoodles soy free.

Vegan Apple Pie

Vegan Apple PieLike the Vegan Cherry Pie recipe, this Vegan Apple Pie recipe is a little slice of heaven when you make it with Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust. No one will know it’s vegan so it’s a great dessert to demonstrate how amazing vegan food can taste to your friends and family.

Granny Smith apples are the best choice for a vegan apple pie. The tartness of the apples pairs well with the sweetness of the sugar and spice from the cinnamon. Serve with some vanilla nice-cream and you’ve got yourself a decadent dessert for your next holiday meal or any special occasion.

Vegan Cherry Pie

Vegan Cherry PieThis vegan cherry pie combined with my Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust will mean a lot of extra work for you because you’ll be asked to bring it anytime there’s a gathering of family or friends. Consider yourself warned.

No one will know this cherry pie is vegan so it’s a great dessert to demonstrate how amazing vegan food can taste to your friends and family.

Use frozen cherries for this recipe. Don’t use the canned cherry pie filling. That’ll make it too syrupy and sweet. The tartness of the cherries combined with the sugar is the savory and sweet taste you want from this pie.

You can also make this pie the same way with blueberries. Vegan Apple Pie is a little different, though.

Serve with some vanilla nice-cream and you’ve got a decadent dessert for your next holiday or special occasion.

Fruit Squares

Fruit SquaresThese Fruit Squares remind me of a Nutrigrain bar, only better. They have a coffee cake or fruit cobbler feel to them. Regardless, they’re rich and delicious and would be a great dessert to serve your non-vegan friends with a side of nice-cream. They’ll never know it’s vegan.

You can add a tbsp of hemp or chia seeds for extra nutrients. You can also use 2 cups of one kind of berry or try different combinations using different berries.

This is a high calorie recipe with lots of sugar so it’s not a diet food by any means. This is a special occasion treat or a party snack.
