These vegan banana walnut muffins are the perfect breakfast treat! They’re sweetened with ripe bananas and have a little crunch from chopped walnuts. They’re so easy to make, and you can freeze them for future morning meals or snacks. With Mother’s Day approaching, I’ve had big plans to make my mom some sort of vegan cake.

This vegan sticky toffee pudding is nothing short of magical! A plant-based spin on the classic dessert, made with gooey dates. The cake features whole grain flour and uses a creamy, cashew-based sauce in place of traditional toffee sauce. I think I’ve just found my new favorite dessert. It’s a combination of my favorite type of dessert (cake) and one of my favorite plant-based ingredients, Medjool dates. Plus a cashew maple sauce that tastes surprisingly like toffee, but is just a little more…

Silken tofu chocolate pudding is an easy-to-make vegan dessert that tastes rich, but uses nutritious, protein-packed silken tofu as a base. Let’s wrap up the year with something sweet, yes? There’s a lot of pressure to relinquish sweets at this time of year. Online recipe content switches suddenly from holiday treats to wholesome, sensible fare for a new year. I can understand the impulse to get back to basics in January. After lots of holiday cooking, simplicity feels good. But sweet and simple…

Vegan Nantucket cranberry pie is inspired by Laurie Colwin’s classic recipe. It’s a cake, not a pie, and it couldn’t be easier to make! The perfect last minute holiday dessert.

I’ve been on a major cherry kick this summer. Aside from snacking on dark sweet cherries from the Northwest, I’ve been roasting them by the pound. I serve them over ice cream and overnight oats, sometimes on toast and a few weeks ago, I even put a bunch of them into chocolate cherry ice cream. Today, I’m sharing a vegan cherry cobbler that’s given me many days of delightful dessert leftovers. Sweet cherries are so easy to love. There’s the natural sweetness, of…

It is most definitely and officially ice cream season here in New York. Within only a few weeks, we had the typical spring to summer transition of suddenly moving from intermittently warm and cool days to sticky, humid, sunny ones.
