For those of you who need reminding - DATES - not the pitted, dried out ones, but the big gooey fresh medjool dates :D . I also LOVE vegan sorbet from this place called Trampoline - the blood orange flavour is the best. And date and walnut cake (but I am allergic to nuts)

I have a few favourites, but one of the major ones would have to be vegan dark chocolate :)

I'm so glad you mentioned that. I have one for snack today courtesy of cedarblue. She sent it as part of our vegan gift exchange :D . Little did she know that I would rent out my husband for good marzipan ;) . And who could beat marzipan + dark chocolate, can't wait.... :)

LOL Tofu - I am NOT a baker, but at the moment I really want some chocolate cake. But that would require me driving 45 minutes to buy a vegan one, so I CBF - I will have to stick to dates :)

Here in Canada I have discovered Laura's Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies. They are quite expensive and there are 6 to a tray. They sell them fresh (made here in Vancouver) and they are mmmm mmmmmm good!

Ingredients: organic spelt flour, belgian chocolate chunks, dates (oat-coated) - whatever that means, water, brown sugar, cold-pressed canola oil (no GMO's), molasses, oats, sesame seeds, coconut, cinamon, baking soda.

Ahhhh think I'll have to have one now ;)

OMG - send me some now. Australia is in need of some good vegan junk (that is not soy based)

Jan 17th, 2005, 05:59 AM
I would lol but can't because customs would seize them! Aussie customs are the most strict customs that I have come accross. I suppose that's good in a way, but it means you won't be able to try the Laura's Vegan Choc Chunk Cookies that have DATES in them :p

From Veggie Life magazine:

Makes 5 dozen

3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
3/4 c. plain soy milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. unbleached white flour
2 T. ground flax seed
1 c. white chocolate chips

cooking spray or parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a nonstick cookie sheet or line with parchment.

In a large mixing bowl, by hand or with an electric mixer, cream together sugars and peanut butter. Mix in soy milk.

In a separate bowl, sift together cocoa and baking soda. Stir in flour and ground flax seed. Add dry mixture to sugar mixture, stirring to mix well. Stir in chocolate chips (Mixture will be somewhat crumbly. If it's too dry, work in 1 or 2 tablespoons of soy milk.)

Using a small scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto prepared sheet about 2inches apart. Flatten dough with fingertips and bake for 8 to 10 min., until done. Let cool for a few minutes on sheet, then remove to a rack and repeat with the remaining dough.

Per cookie: 83 calories, .8 g. fiber, 4 g. fat

Arti, could I substitute the peanut butter with anything, coz I am reacting to nuts at the moment...

Feb 24th, 2005, 12:22 AM
Oh, I don't know. Hmmm. Cream cheese? Something creamy, I would suspect, and fatty.

Feb 24th, 2005, 01:00 AM
LOL :D - I will find something....

The final results taste MUCH better than the dough!

3/4 cup Turbinado Sugar
1/2 cup vegan butter/margarine, softened
1/4 cup molasses
1/3 cup mashed banana
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup soy flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup carob chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine sugar, margarine and molasses, stir until completely mixed.
Add banana and vanilla - blend well.
Add soy flour, baking soda and cinnamon, stirring until smooth.
Stir in oats and carob chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until dark golden brown (but not burned!)
Let cool on cookie sheet 1 minute, then remove.

New vegan here....
I miss pudding. Anyone got a recipe for a vegan pudding (can't figure out anything at all to make it work) or cinnamon rolls.
Any input is appreciated.

hi there

try having a search through the food/recipes section, you should find something you fancy making. it also contains some suggestions for various veggie/vegan websites for good recipes too.

welcome by the way! :)

- er sorry just read the 5 dozen bit - wow thats loads :p

Jun 27th, 2005, 03:42 AM
More like 2 or 3 dozen - it's been so long that I can't remember. I made these like two summers ago, it seems. It doesn't make 5; that's just what the recipe states.

My mums made these cookies for me and my brothers since we were little. Many of you have probably already had them, and they were very easy to vegeffy, so here ya go!

Spider Cookies

In one large bowl mix together:
6 tbsp of cocoa
a pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cuprs rolled oats
1 cup coconut

In a pot (not heated quite yet) put together:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening (or vegan margaine)
1 tbsp vegan margarine
1/2 cup soy milk - regular, vanilla or chocolate!!! ( i prefer vanilla, it makes them more fudgy tasting...)

Mix the ingrediants in the pot over medium heat until everything i melted and it is brought to a boil.

Now, pour the melted yummy into the big bowl with the other ingrediants and mix it up good with a spoon. (becareful, its very hot!!!)

After its all mixed up drop spoonefuls onto waxed paper. Let them cool until they are firm, and then gorge!!!!

Sounds scrummy! Judging by your pic you must have a high metabolic rate or lots of brothers who guzzle biscuits rapidly! :D
