Baked Pumpkin Donuts With Cinnamon Sugar (Vegan)

One of my fondest childhood memories took place during my family’s annual visit to a local farm, where we picked pumpkins, navigated through corn mazes, and went on hayrides. Every year, as we pulled up to the farm, the aroma of freshly made pumpkin donuts from  the donut stand would hit me, and I would…

Healthy Baked Lemon Cheesecake (Vegan, No Gluten/Oil/Refined Sugar)

Vegan cheesecake sounds like an oxymoron. It can’t be possible to achieve the same creamy tang of cheesecake without dairy, right? Wrong! It is totally possible to make a vegan cheesecake that tastes exactly like the real thing, and I’m not talking about those raw cashew “cheesecakes” either. While those are delicious, they’re definitely not…

Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins

Lately, I’ve been starting and ending each day with chocolate in some form, and it has honestly improved the quality of my life. You may think I’m making this up, but it’s true: chocolate is scientifically proven to make you happier! Apparently eating chocolate releases phenylethylamine (AKA the “love drug”) and serotonin in your brain and…

4 Ingredient Healthy Vegan Oreos (No Refined Sugar/Oil)

When you think of “accidentally” vegan food, Oreos are probably the first thing that come to mind. Most people, not just vegans, know that Oreos contain no animal products. However, just because they’re vegan certainly doesn’t mean they’re healthy! That isn’t to say your shouldn’t ever eat them; a little treat each day is perfectly fine….

Vegan Avocado Quesadillas With Black Beans and Vegetables

When I was in fifth grade, my family took a cross country road trip. We traveled all the way from Ohio to California and back in the span of 18 days, all in our little Prius (I don’t recommend it). We drove anywhere from 3-18 hours each day, which, as you can imagine, drove my…

Oil-Free Black Bean Dip

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and you know what that means: snacks! If you’re anything like me, there’s only two reason to watch the big game, and neither of them has to do with football. The first reason to watch the Super Bowl is the commercials, which are always quite entertaining. The…

15 Minute Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Living in Ohio during the winter can get pretty gloomy. The complete lack of sunshine for months on end really starts to get to you after a while! Because of this, it’s really best for us Ohioans to plan a trip somewhere warm during the winter, just to keep us from going completely insane. This…

The Best Vegan Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favorite foods. They come in so many flavors and varieties, and they make it socially acceptable to eat cake for breakfast! Every Sunday morning, I make a vegan breakfast for my dad and I. Sometimes, my mom will join in, although she’s usually pretty skeptical of vegan food. However, there’s…

Vegan Gingerbread Cookies With Royal Icing

Christmas is only 3 days away now, which means that in just 48 hours, it’ll be time to put out cookies for Santa and his reindeer! I’m not exactly sure where this time-honored tradition came from, but I sure am glad it exists, since making holiday cookies is one of my favorite winter activities. Today,…

Baked Vegan Eggnog Donuts With Eggnog Glaze

With exams finally over (as of yesterday), I’m ready to get in the holiday spirit! Since there’s less than a week remaining until Christmas, I’ve decided to jam-pack this week with holiday fun. That means I’ll be posting bonus holiday recipes this weekend! Instead of my usual weekly post on  Sunday, I’ll be sharing vegan…
