    Default Vegan desserts, sweets, cakes & cookies

    I'm craving for sweets since I cut down on sugar.
    Any good healthy recipes out there? PUDDINGS, CAKES ETC.

    I have a chocolate pudding recipe that looks really good but I haven't tried yet.

    And I have a chocolate cake recipe that is awesome!! I couldn't describe with words how good it is.


    Hey, what was up with the meat chunks or crumbles in that recipe you posted a while back?



    I'll post in the recipe section.

    Ewwwwwwww! I just cannot eat Dates atall, they are so sweet and they upset my tummy!!
    I like Strawberries with Swedish Glace ice-cream, or a cake I make with Carrotts, Raisins, Walnuts and Lemon Juice (also of course, sugar, marg, w/meal flour and then either soya milk or egg-replacer).
    I try not to make the cake too often, as I am the only one here who likes it, so I have to eat it all up!!

    U serious? I am notorious for polishing off 1/2 kilo of medjool dates in one go!!! Yes they are very sweet and do give you a tummy ache - but they are worth the pain. Forget chocolate, forget cake, forget candy - just give me dates any day and I will be happy

    DATES ARE ABSOLUTELY >>>IT<<<


    I have a question a bit out of this thread - but your pm box is full.
    What are sprouted chickpeas? are they raw and sprouted. Or sprouted and cooked?
    Besides lately I fancy raw food. At least in my mind because I haven't tried that yet

    How about some fancy raw sweets.

    Scroll down for comments. That should give you a start. I've never made fudge before.

    Tree Huggin Treats are awesome. I love the mango bars!

    But someone had a fudge thread, and now I can't find it. I even forgot who the OP was.

    For those of you who need reminding - DATES - not the pitted, dried out ones, but the big gooey fresh medjool dates . 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'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 . 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

    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

    Nuts Laddu :-

    Requirements :- ( Pick up from any of them or be innovative to add new stuff yourself)

    Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts,Pista, Peanuts, Plant based gums, gratted dry or fresh coconuts, You can choose some seeds like Pumkin or Water melon, Cardmom powder, Crushed Saffron Leaves....

    Sweetners:-

    Raisins,Dates,Apricots, Jaggery or Brown Sugar


    NOW start, First grind (do not Powder them) all Nuts then add one tea spoon cardmom powder and little pinch of crushed saffron leaves. Now you can add crushed sweetners. Mix both together well with your hands. Now make balls.

    Your Raw Ladddu are ready.

    Default White Diamond Cookies

    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.

    Default Oatmeal Carob Chip Cookies

    The final results taste MUCH better than the dough!

    Ingredients:
    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

    Directions:
    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.

    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!

    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.

    Default Yummy yummy spider cookies!!!

    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!!!!
