Crispy on the outside, light and fluffy inside. These vegan waffles are super quick and easy and taste just like cake batter! They are a dream come true!
Yes, you heard me correctly. Vegan Milk and Cereal Cake. I had this crazy idea to make a cake where the batter was filled with cereal and instead of frosting, I would use coconut milk whipped cream to give you the flavors of eating milk and cereal in cake form. Would this work? Does this work? Damn right it does. Not only does this work, it is amazing. You can use whatever kind of cereal you want, just make sure it is vegan. …
These vegan and gluten free monster cookie bars are the ultimate indulgence without all the guilt! I have been dreaming of monster cookies for sometime now, and just realized all the different brands of vegan chocolate candies coming out that are very reminiscent of M&M’s. So, I feel like they are pretty readily available. I found some at Whole Foods, Lucky’s and Earth Fare. I am sure there are many others, and I will give you some links at the bottom for where you can purchase some online. If that is all too much, you can pick whatever vegan chocolates you would like!…
Cereal was a staple for me most of my childhood, and frankly as a single, child free adult, it became a week night meal! Over the past few years, I realized I stopped eating so much cereal. As per my child’s request, I recently bought her some various cereals to try. I had a few bowls, and oh lord, the heavens parted and I remembered my love affair with cereal. When I was younger, I loved Golden Grahams! However, Golden Grahams is 1. not vegan 2. has a shit ton of chemicals and 3. has a shit ton of sugar. So, I decided to solve this problem, with my vegan, refined sugar free copy cat Golden Grahams!
This is actually incredibly easy to make, takes very little time, and can be stored in an air tight container for quite a while, if it lasts more than a few days! Throw it in a bowl with some almond milk(my favorite) or other dairy free milk, and you have an amazing perfect breakfast you can feel good about! The dough for the cereal is really simple, only 8 ingredients, and bakes in 10 minutes.
You can roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper, this way it gets really thin, and you just take the top piece of parchment paper off, and place the whole bottom sheet with the cereal on it right onto a pan. I cut the cereal into strips, then cut across to make small squares, then I just ran a fork along each row, to give them a little texture like the manufactured cereal.
They are so perfect and delicious! Just the right amount of sweetness, just the right amount of crunch, and I find myself craving this cereal that is much better for me every morning, and that makes me happy! I think I am going to work on some other cereals as well, so I can have my own fantastic stock of cereals in my pantry!
I know it may be cheesy, but I love the state fair. I love how over the top everything is, the rides, the lights and the food. All the crazy food, most of which I can’t have, but I love to look at! Funnel cakes were always my favorite when I was little, while I really liked cotton candy, I LOVED funnel cakes. The state fair comes to our city every November, and we always take my kid. This year, I took notes of all things I wanted to make vegan, and I thought making vegan funnel cakes was a badass idea!
This recipe was so simple, and only took about 5 minutes to whip up the batter. I made some really cute mini funnel cakes, and decided to make them a little different. I decided I would toss them in cinnamon and sugar. They taste like an amazing treat that is like a funnel cake and a churro had a delicious baby!
You can make them any size you want of course, I was just thinking it would be nice to just have a funnel cake that was only a couple of bites. Then you can really not feel bad about having a small treat! The batter also contains brown sugar and cinnamon to give it a little more of a churro feel.
We had so much fun making different shapes and sizes, it is really up to you how you play this. Large or small, they are insanely delicious. You also can keep these classic and skip the cinnamon and sugar dip, and just use a sprinkle of powdered sugar! I was also thinking they would be a great snack for a sports party, and the super bowl is coming! Your friends will thank you!
I hope you all enjoy these perfect bite sized morsels! They will take you right back to being a kid at the fair, light-hearted and fancy free!
I was a picky child. I was really only into peanut butter sandwiches(no jelly), bagel bites, and toaster waffles. I did however of course love super processed snacks. My favorite was Nutter Butters. They are amazing in every way. Crunchy, salty, sweet and peanut buttery. Peanut butter has remained the food of my dreams. Anything with peanut butter in it, and I melt into a puddle.
Making Nutter Butters vegan and super easy for any one to make at home seemed like the natural progression of what I am trying to do here. Which is make it possible for everyone to maintain a vegan lifestyle while never feeling limited or like they are craving some junk food they can’t have. You know, let’s be serious here for a minute, we all deserve a little treat now and then!
These delightful bite sized morsels are all I have ever dreamed of. A much healthier version of my childhood favorite, they just pop right in your mouth and are so scrumptious. They are only 10 ingredients total, including the filling, take about 20 minutes to complete, and make me feel much better about giving something like this to my daughter. Not a treat filled with chemicals, a treat filled with ingredients I can pronounce!
I threw these together very quickly, they only bake for 10 minutes. They cool really quickly and can be stuffed easily with the super simple filling. I had them ready for after school snack time, and so can you. You will probably be able to find all or most of the ingredients right in your pantry, and create a better alternative to the classic snack. You can even make them larger and skwoosh (is that a word?) them together in the center to make a peanut shape, but I wanted to make this the easiest recipe ever. So the little circles are still reminiscent of the peanut shape we loved, but no hassle!
Let us have a chat about bananas. I love them so much, and I think I may always go overboard with how many I buy(especially if I go shopping when I am hungry, am I right?), and then they go bad so fast! So, I am constantly thinking about things to make with very ripe bananas, besides banana bread. Don’t get me wrong, I love banana bread, it is just done to excess. Then I had a thought a few days ago, why fight it? I will just make it more fabulous! Vegan gluten free banana bread waffles became the answer to all my questions about what to do with my ripe bananas!
These waffles taste exactly like banana bread! I used a combination of oat flour, that I processed myself(but you don’t have to) and pecans also processed into a almost flour like texture. Mashed banana, cinnamon, then sweetened with either maple syrup or coconut sugar(I tried both, they are both amazing), this perfect breakfast is healthy, delicious and fast as heck!
I highly recommend getting a waffle maker, they are so awesome, and can turn any boring dish into something super exciting! This waffle batter, while being ironed, made my kitchen smell like banana bread, and it was totally awesome! This recipe is super simple, and is ready in minutes. Pour some maple syrup on top, and hot damn! So friggin’ good!
I also want to mention, if you are still like me, and you are trying to eat clean for your new year’s resolution, this is a perfect breakfast. I promise you won’t know they are really healthy and you don’t even have to tell anyone (shhhhhhhh….). Adding this to your repertoire will make life way easier! These waffles are perfect, crispy and crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy in the center. The pecans and oats together make a really great texture! I was actually not sure how this was going to turn out, but I was so surprised by how incredible these waffles are!
I hope you enjoy, and as always, if you have any questions or feedback, I am happy to hear it! Have fun kids!
