Vegan Bakery-Style “M&M” Cookies

0 comments

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with M&M cookies. We had a local bakery that used to make them, and getting one was a huge treat. Theirs were huge, like really huge – and I’m not just saying that because I was a kid and everything seemed big. […]

Orange Almond Biscotti

Clear the decks and put on a pot of good, strong coffee, because you’re going to want to make these biscotti ASAP. I’m not kidding. They are the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy; and are full of almond and orange flavours that are rich enough to balance out a […]

Frosted Animal Crackers

These are a total trip-down-memory-lane kind of treat. Who didn’t love getting a box of animal crackers as a kid and biting the heads off of lions and tigers and bears? Guaranteed fun…until the box was empty of course. I love recreating childhood favorites and introducing them to my kids. […]

Vegan Easter Creme Eggs

I think I’ve tested about 12 versions of vegan macaroons for this post. Seriously. For a bite-size dessert that should be really simple to make, that’s a lot of trial and error. Here’s what’s kept me up at night with this recipe: replacing the eggs. Now for most baking recipes, […]

I am hopelessly hooked on these scones. There’s a specialty grocer in my city that has their own in-house bakery and they make a vegan kale & onion scone. I’m not down there often, but when I do, I always buy one (or three…let’s be real here, I’m a carb […]

Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies

What’s the secret to insanely rich, chewy and ooey-gooey {vegan} chocolate fudge brownies? Aquafaba.  If you’re unfamiliar, aquafaba (or water-bean) is the viscous brine that canned chickpeas are cooked and packed in.  Aquafaba so closely mimics the properties of an egg white that it is an ideal substitute for eggs […]
