This year I baked several types of Christmas cookies of which I made these vegan and gluten free Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies. They were a nice addition to my usual cookies and I’m sure I will be making them again next year. Funny how they were the first to vanish off the cookie plate! Continue reading
So let’s say you have a friend, relative or maybe even an enemy that is Vegan and/or Gluten free. And let’s say out of the goodness of your heart, you want to do something nice for them…like off the charts nice. May I (highly) suggest that you make a batch of these truly amazing cookies. I can’t make promises for your enemies loving you but it’s sure worth a try. I will say that this cookie recipe is a wee bit pricier to make but I can’t recommend it enough! They taste so amazingly good and you would never know that they are V&GF! If you decided to keep all the cookies for yourself, I wouldn’t be surprised. Continue reading
It’s the weekend AGAIN! How fast did that happen? And it turns out we have absolutely no sweets in our home. Not one cookie or anything. I didn’t want the hubs to go without so baking seemed like a good idea until I realized we didn’t have any butter. Not to fret, I chose to bake something vegan (and on the healthy side). I had just enough chocolate to make this recipe and waaaaay back in one of my kitchen cupboards I found a can of pumpkin puree. The Bakery is OPEN! These brownies baked up and sliced perfectly. The pumpkin delivered on the moistness.
Once I had eaten one of these Pumpkin Brownies I was thinking that you could probably eat them for breakfast without feeling guilty. They are filling and very nutritious for a brownie! And… if you were in a hurry…I’m just sayin’… why not?
This is not an overly sweet brownie but you could add another ¼ cup of sugar if you like a traditionally sweeter brownie.
