I really love simple recipes that have just a few ingredients that come together in a small time frame. Of course, when the outcome is something tasty, it makes the simplicity easier to be appreciated and enjoyed. This is the case for some dairy-free (vegan friendly!) chocolate banana oatmeal cookies. These are great and can be made without oil by using an oil substitute - the bananas actually serve this purpose.
One of my favorite muffin recipes is this easy to prepare and very healthy snack. What I really love outside of the moist and sweet taste is the ability to prepare many muffins early in the week, store in the fridge, and eat as needed generally as little snacks. They are easy to take along to work at my contracting jobs, and I imagine you could find a similar benefit.
While guacamole is generally thought of as smooth and creamy, I thought I would put together this really easy recipe I sometimes make when I don’t feel like being in the kitchen for a long time. It is easy to make a chunky guacamole, and the great part is that chunks of avocado and tomato seem to break apart in the mouth quite easily. Pair this guacamole with another recipe – like our authentic vegan eggplant and guac tacos – and you are surely going to be left satisfied!
You should just taste these mouth watering zucchini muffins. They really hit the spot, and are good for you too! By being oil and dairy free, they enable you to make better health-conscious decisions. The prep to bake these is fairly simple and straightforward, the majority of the cook time will be spent just waiting for them to finish. They are great right out of the oven, and of course if you want to save them for later, will taste great then too!
One of the toughest part for many who switch to a whole foods, plant-based diet is giving up sweets. Ice cream is an addicting substance. Something about the sugar content paired with the many flavor options, constantly evolving due to mom-and-pop ice cream parlors that continue to operate and experiment, makes it so appealing. Not to mention the low cost. Fortunately, vegans have ice cream alternatives that allows us to get our fill with a similar taste and texture, and it isn't difficult at all to make. You can make your own Neapolitan, Vegan Ice Cream in just a handful of minutes.
