Sweet, rich, indulgent is the trio that comes to mind when I think about what makes up the perfect tasty treat, and vegan desserts embody just that. Baking is a great way to relax and unwind and the reward at the end makes the TLC put into it all the more sweet. Vegan desserts all in all are quite simple. A limited choice when it comes to ingredients makes the process a lot easier and quicker meaning less time in the kitchen and more time eating! Here are five enticing vegan desserts you’ll want to make over and over again in Vegan Desserts: 5 Yummy Ones You Can Make From Scratch!
1. Sweet Potato Brownies
Don’t shake your head at these, sweet is in the name and boy do they live up to it! Making one of the best varieties of brownie out there, the sweet potato acts as a soft, moist base bulking up the entirety of the brownie body enhanced by natural additives including cocoa powder and sweetener. Additionally, the versatility that sweet potato gives means that these brownies can be made in all kinds of ways to suit your personal taste preference including gluten-free!
2. Chickpea Cookies
Another favourite recipe of mine if you’re looking for an additional protein hit is chickpea cookies. I promise I’m not trying to get freaky with these ingredients but when used in desserts, chickpeas create a very clean, non-distinctive flavour acting as a dough but with much more protein and an extra nutritious value punch. Load them up with some dark chocolate chips or dried fruits and you’ll never be able to tell the difference. (I dare you to tell me you think you can!)
3. Chocolate Bars
If you’ve recently become vegan or are thinking about becoming vegan, you may be wondering about how to fill the void of no longer being able to eat your favourite ‘on the go’ candy bars. The great news is that they are very easy to replace and you can take pride in recreating the world’s bestselling chocolates from the comfort of your own home.
4. Cinnamon Rolls
Did you think we would cut out buttery pastries and creamy frostings from the list? Believe the impossible with this amazing recipe for vegan cinnamon rolls. Like normal cinnamon rolls they can take some time to make but the reward is worth it and if you make a big batch, they are the ideal tear and share dessert for friends and family.
Nothing screams vegan like a no-cheese cheesecake. The wonder ingredient here is blended cashew nuts which deliver a creamy, velvety filling for the cake. This easy, no-bake dessert is effortless and will leave you wanting to eat the whole thing by yourself. Stylize the toppings however you like with an assortment of fresh fruits, vegan caramel glaze or a zesty citrus gel.
