Vegan Cherry Crumble Bars

It’s absolutely NO secret that if you’re in the Midwest in the summertime, cherry is the name of the game! Vegan cherry crumble bars are the PERFECT combo of sweet, crunchy, easy, and packed full of cherry goodness. Kind of like vegan cherry pie, but in a much easier to make and eat crumble bar form!

If there’s one thing that I will NEVER ever quit doing in the summer..it’s baking! It might be 95 degrees out and 80 degrees in our very old, but very cute house and I’m still going to be cranking up the oven to make pizza on Friday nights and bake cookies as an after dinner treat. Thankfully, (more…)

It’s my birthday week and I’ll eat ALL the chocolate and peanut butter that I want to! Ok, I actually haven’t had THAT many sweets yet this week (mostly a lot of fries), but don’t worry my birthday cake recipe is coming later this week and ohhhh is it GOOD. In the meantime, I am ALL about these no-bake vegan cereal bars right now because they come together in 15 minutes, don’t need ot turn on the oven (hello old house with no AC), and are SO EASY! Like, throw everything together and pop it in the freezer so it’s ready for a cookout later, kind of easy.

Please just make me a promise that you are going to heat up one of these vegan blondies and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ASAP. Deal? Great. Glad we took care of that important business.

Whole Wheat Vegan Blondies on plate

Vegan blondies have been on my ‘to-make’ list for years. I actually don’t eat them ALL the often, but it’s mainly because I just haven’t found a recipe that I REALLY love yet. I’ve slowly worked my way through a baking book and turning the basic baking recipes in vegan versions, without any weird ingredients in them (more…)

The BEST Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

The BEST Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Ok, let’s just TALK about how many tries these vegan peanut butter cookies took me. I’ve been looking for a recipe that is just straight up peanut butter cookies, no almond butter, no other stuff, and something that I can throw together in a SNAP when I get that hardcore cookie craving. I found the perfect cookie in these, with a perfectly crispy, chewy outside and a super soft, peanut butter-y inside that feeds that inner peanut butter lover in me.

The BEST vegan peanut butter cookies are perfectly soft and full of SO much peanut butter goodness! They also come together in less than 30 minutes.

Citrus Poppy Seed Vegan Sugar Cookies

I bet you thought I was allllll done with the lemon desserts, right? NOPE. Turns out, I keep buying lemons over and over again (but always forget to buy more sugar and olive oil, WHY?!) and they end up being the main thing I bake with each week. While I’m not complaining, you have to know that these are not only AMAZING lemon poppy seed cookies, but they are also the base for the absolute BEST vegan sugar cookies I’ve come across in years.

Lemon Vegan Lime Bars with Shortbread Crust

Once again, I feel like I’m hooked on the lemon desserts and I can.not. stop! I was thinking about making these vegan lime bars for MONTHS. Especially since I have my standby vegan lemon bar recipe and perfected my favorite creamy cashew filling with this lemon tart recipe that is still THE BEST in my opinion.

Vegan lime bars are dreamy, creamy, and have a PERFECT shortbread crust! Made with a creamy cashew filling and a coconut oil crust that will TOTALLY become your new favorite dessert.
