Vegan Donut Holes

Vegan donut recipeI’m not normally one for making and eating dessert. However, for the start of my husbands birthday week I wanted to make him a special breakfast. Scouring Pinterest I came across this recipe for glazed donut bites using store-bought biscuit dough.

They are very easy to make and even easier to veganize. You can find cans of vegan refrigerated biscuits at most stores. I buy a Pillsbury one at Meijer’s. I also subbed Earth Balance butter and unsweetened cashew milk for the butter and milk.

Thanks Recipe Swagger, my husband loves them!


Easy Vegan Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Vegan Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake Recip

Although worth the time, cinnamon rolls can be a very time-consuming task! This vegan cinnamon roll coffee cake is every bit as good but without having to spend all morning baking! It takes about 10 – 15 minutes to assemble and 20-25 minutes to bake!

I just whipped some up for Easter morning… although I did have to taste it, but only to make sure it was good! 😉 and oh was it ever!

1/4 cup unsweetend applesauce
1 replaced egg w/ Ener-g Egg or your favorite egg replacer
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I use rice milk)
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 recipe streusel topping (below)
1 recipe Glaze (below)

Using a hand mixer on medium speed, combine applesauce, vegan egg, and non-dairy milk.

Whisk together dry ingredients then add to milk mixture and mix gently until well combined.

Spray 9x9x2 inch pain with non-stick spray and pour mixture into it.

Sprinkle with streusel topping making sure to cover all areas. With a spoon (or your finger!) gently poke some of the topping down a little into the flour mixture. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before drizzling glaze over the top.

Streusel Topping:
Mix together 2 Tbsp melted vegan butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp flour, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, until well combined. The mixture will be crumbly.

Combine 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 3 Tbsp rice milk. Whisk until smooth.

Vegan Almost Raw Blueberry Dessert Bars

vegan almost raw blueberry bars recipeFor my husbands birthday last week a friend made him some blueberry streusel bars. They were delish! I ate them for breakfast, snacks & dessert until sadly, they were gone. Craving more I decide to make a batch myself but wanted to cut down on the sugar and make them healthier to alleviate some of my guilt. The results were amazing! A friend of mine even gave them the “best dessert EVER” award!

Even though there are 3 parts to the recipe, the crust, filling & topping, it’s actually pretty easy to make! The recipe uses nuts in the crust & the topping and although it’s a healthy fat, you may opt to cut down on some of the fat by replacing some of the nuts in the streusel topping with oats. Enjoy!

2 cups walnuts
1 cup pitted dates
1 tsp vanilla

Add crust ingredients to food processor and process until crumbly. Pat down into bottom of pan.

4 cups blueberries
1/2 cup sugar or 1/2 cup pitted dates (processed until fine)
4 teaspoons potato starch or corn starch
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tbsp water.

Put all filling ingredients in saucepan. Lightly mash blueberries leaving them chunky & cook on low until desired consistency. spread over crust.

1 cup raw pecans
1 cup unsweet coconut
2 cups dates
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg.

Process streusel ingredients until crumbly and sprinkle on top of blueberry filling. Chill until crust sets, about an hour. Eat. Yum!
