Vegan Desserts

Vegan Desserts

It seems only fitting that as our month of vegan comes to a close, that I begin to think about vegan desserts.  When I began this challenge, I thought that my only dessert for 30 days would be pieces of fruit, and while that might have been the most healthy choice, I wanted a real dessert.    Don’t get me wrong.  A beautiful fruit plate is a delicious work of art, but I have a serious sweet tooth, and I love chocolate, so I needed some other options.    I was glad to discover that being vegan didn’t require me to abstain […]

Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler

Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler (Vegan)

Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler is a simple and delicious dessert that goes together quickly, and bakes perfectly in the oven while you make the rest of your vegan meal on the stove top.  The inspiration for this cobbler is our easy nectarine cobbler and our canned fruit cobbler.  Neither of those recipes were vegan, so I decided to adapt the recipe to see how it would work without any animal products.  When I realized that I would be using coconut milk, I immediately thought of a pina colada, so I  chose a can of pineapple for my fruit. What will […]

Vegan Easy Blueberry Apple Crisp (Gluten Free)

This Vegan Easy Blueberry Apple Crisp is a re-make of one of my oldest dessert recipes.  I love to make my Easy Apple Crisp because it’s simple to prepare, and it’s a family favorite.  This recipe is very easy to modify, too.   I’ve already created a  gluten free version of this apple crisp for a friend with gluten intolerance.  That version also happens to be vegan.   Having this recipe By using different fruits, or mixing different fruits together, you can create an entirely different dessert using this same recipe.  I’ve used this recipe to create a Blueberry Pear Crumble […]

Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

A recipe for vegan banana bread was a necessity.  You know that I hate when any food goes to waste, and I love to make banana bread, right? I find it extremely satisfying to turn browning bananas into something my family will eat instead of tossing them into the trash.  My favorite way to make banana bread is with my 1-2-3 method.   I wondered if it would be possible to create a vegan banana bread using the same technique replacing the egg with something that’s vegan friendly, so I began to search the internet for vegan friendly egg substitutes.

Coconut Oil Bark

Coconut Oil Bark

Coconut Oil Bark is a recipe that’s  part of a tale from the “Transform in to Wellness” journey  Do you want to hear the story?   Ready or not, here it comes! As a fledgling health coach, I am ever eager to help anybody possible find their way through our “SAD,” or Standard American Diet, into wellness. For example, I have been gently guiding a friend who complains of difficulty losing weight and chronic fatigue. Through our conversations, she has come to the realization that eliminating soda and processed foods will make a huge difference in her health. She so […]
