Vegan Sticky Toffee Pudding from Lazy Cat Kitchen

Vegan sticky toffee pudding

Mmm, sticky toffee pudding! It’s a classic British comfort food that, unfortunately, isn’t vegan-friendly… until now, that is!

Duncan from Lazy Cat Kitchen has transformed this sweet wintry staple into a cruelty-free confection that’ll prove irresistible to all who see it, vegan or not! A moist sponge made with dates serves as the vessel for a truly amazing toffee sauce.

To learn how to make this vegan sticky toffee pudding for yourself, view the recipe here.


Frozen Gluten-Free and Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Pie from A Saucy Kitchen

Frozen peanut butter cup plant-based

Sarah from A Saucy Kitchen describes this nutty, chocolatey pie as “decadent”, and all I can do is agree!

A date- and nut-based crust plays host to a peanut butter/coconut cream center. The whole thing is then topped with a chocolate sauce and crushed peanuts. The best part? No baking required! The pie can be assembled in just 15 minutes, then put in the freezer to set.

Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Chocolate Cups from The Loopy Whisk

Cookie dough cups raw vegan

Imagine a peanut butter cup filled with tasty, indulgent cookie dough. Now imagine that it’s vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, refined-sugar-free and paleo-friendly.

Nope, we’re not making this up! Kat from The Loopy Whisk is a wizard in the kitchen, as evidenced by her recipe for these fabulous little cookie dough chocolate cups. Vegan cookie dough that tastes just like the real deal would be a winner all on its own, but it’s even better surrounded with rich, creamy chocolate.

These raw vegan cookie dough chocolate cups are super easy to whip up, too! Get the full recipe by clicking here.


Vegan Tofu Tiramisu from Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen

Vegan tiramisu

Tiramisu is one of those desserts that you just can’t help but crave. Unfortunately for us vegans, it’s also one of those desserts that’s been off-limits due to its ingredients.

Fear not! Nadia from Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen has arrived to save the day with her recipe for vegan tofu tiramisu. Tofu in a dessert may sound strange, but thanks to its silky texture and readiness to absorb whatever flavors you throw at it, it’s actually the perfect base for this delectable dessert.

To make this tantalizing tiramisu, check out the recipe here on Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen.

Vegan Aquafaba Macarons from Supergolden Bakes

Vegan macaroons

Macarons are the perfect little treat for any occasion. And Lucy from Supergolden Bakes has made them vegan-friendly thanks to her use of aquafaba.

What’s aquafaba? It’s the liquid drained from a can of chickpeas, and it’s the key ingredient in these cute and colorful cookies. And no, it doesn’t make them taste like chickpeas! In fact, these vegan macarons are just about indistinguishable from the real thing.

Intrigued? I can’t say I blame you! Learn more about aquafaba and get Lucy’s magnificent macaron recipe here!


Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse from Lazy Cat Kitchen

Peanut butter mousse

Lazy Cat Kitchen has done it again! This time it’s from founder Ania, who describes this vegan peanut butter mousse as “indecently fluffy”. From the looks of it, she’s absolutely right!

Whipped to peanutty perfection and topped with a sinfully smooth vegan plain chocolate ganache, this marvellous mousse is the ultimate indulgence. And with aquafaba (here it is again) in place of egg whites, it’s completely vegan too!

Get the lowdown on the mousse and check out the recipe here!


Vegan Self-Saucing Chocolate Pudding from Yumsome

Self-saucing chocolate puddings

It’s a cake! It’s a brownie! Nope, it’s a pudding!

A self-saucing chocolate pudding that’s also 100% vegan, to be precise. Nico over at Yumsome has created a dangerous dessert: a fudgy chocolate pudding sauce with a rich, crumbly topping that’s delectable hot or cold and takes just 10 minutes to prep! Fast, easy, delicious and vegan? I’m in love!

Are you ready to fall in love with this self-saucing chocolate pudding, too? Get the recipe on Yumsome by clicking here!


The Great Vegan Soy-Free Oil-Free Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie from Plant-Powered Kitchen

Plant-based pumpkin pie

There’s tons of vegan pumpkin pie recipes out there, but this one is extra special.

Dreena from Plant-Powered Kitchen has gone to great lengths to produce this picture-perfect pumpkin pie. The crust is made from scratch with rolled oats (same as you’d use in any of the best overnight oats recipes), dates and almond butter, while the soft, creamy filling is spiced with cinnamon and sweetened with maple syrup.

There’s no soy, oil or gluten to be found anywhere in the pie, which means it’s perfect for those with food sensitivities. Whip up this wonderful pumpkin pie for your next get-together and wow every guest, vegan or otherwise!

Five Ingredient Vegan Crème Brûlée from Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen

Vegan creme brulee

Nadia tackles vegan crème brûlée the same way she tackles vegan tiramisu: with expert skill and spectacular results!

Crème brûlée can be tricky to veganize (it’s even got cream in its name!), but Nadia has it mastered. Her recipe uses just five simple ingredients and can be enjoyed hot, cold, or at room temperature – and all result in equal amounts of “yum”s! The crème brûlée is also gluten-free in addition to being fully vegan.

Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen has the recipe available here, along with many other incredible vegan recipes.

Kare from Kitchen Treaty’s adorable mug cake is made with almond milk, maple syrup and (of course) a generous amount of peanut butter.

Ania’s vegan lattice apple pie recipe makes two adorable single-serving pies that are visually gorgeous, taste divine and are unbelievably simple to make. The filling and crust use just four ingredients each!

Custard is so tasty, and it’s even tastier when it’s cruelty-free!

With crusts made from almonds and oat flour and a filling made from soy milk and vanilla, Nadia’s vegan custard tarts taste just like their non-vegan counterparts. Top them with fresh berries, chopped nuts or anything else your heart desires for a dreamy, creamy dessert.

Vegan Gluten-Free Coffee Chia Pudding from Nutritionist Meets Chef

Coffee chia pudding

This may just be one of the easiest (and tastiest!) recipes ever.

Vegan Malabi (Israeli Rosewater Pudding with Pomegranate) from Family Friends Food

Vegan malabi

Helen from Family Friends Food is known for her delicious and creative kosher recipes. This one is for vegan malabi, an Israeli pudding that’s traditionally made with dairy, but not this time!

Helen was inspired to create this recipe after sampling a vegan version in Israel. It uses coconut and almond milk instead of dairy milk. Pomegranate and grenadine combine to make the perfect topping for this sweet, fruity, completely vegan treat.

To make this vegan malabi, just follow Helen’s recipe, which can be found here.

Vegan Chia Pudding with Berry Layers from Lauren Caris Cooks

Berry layered chia pudding

Chia seeds are a staple of many vegans’ pantries for good reason: they’re incredibly versatile. In Lauren’s recipe for vegan chia pudding with berry layers, the chia seeds are soaked in your choice of plant milk, then layered in a glass with a tantalizing berry puree.

The result? A thick, fruity pudding/smoothie hybrid that’s dairy-free and oh-so-satisfying.

Lauren Caris Cooks has the recipe here along with many other amazing vegan recipes.


Vegan Banana Splits from Minimalist Baker

Vegan banana splits

Dana from Minimalist Baker has the dreamiest banana split recipe I’ve ever seen!

Cherries, chocolate, bananas, coconut whipped cream and dairy-free chocolate ice cream (for which Dana also provides a recipe – no churning required, although you could always use an ice cream machine) all combine to create this sublime vegan sundae that’s also gluten-free.

And while we wouldn’t call it “healthy”, per se, it’s definitely better for you than your typical banana split!

Fig frangipane tart

Ania from Lazy Cat Kitchen has truly mastered the art of the vegan tart. Eschewing butter and eggs for coconut oil and aquafaba, she’s created this gorgeous golden fig frangipane tart that looks tricky to make but is actually super simple.

The handmade pastry needs just three ingredients and the filling whips up in a snap. Not wanting anyone to be excluded from enjoying this tart, Ania also includes instructions for a gluten-free pastry dough.
