By far some of the best vegan chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made came from a recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. These cookies are easy to make gluten-free as well. In the picture below, I subbed all purpose gluten-free flour for regular all purpose flour. I’ve made these countless times both gluten-free and non-GF and they always come out great. Dip them in a glass of cold almond or coconut milk and it’s simple perfection!
The Joy of Vegan Baking
In honor of all of the Oktoberfests and Apple Harvest Festivals that are going on this time of year, I recently made the apple strudel recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. This cookbook is one of my standby cookbooks for desserts. I’ve enjoyed many of Colleen’s recipes, but this was my first time trying to make strudel. I think I went a little overboard with the Earth Balance (using 3 times the amount called for) and have learned my lesson for next time. I also omitted the raisins because I’m not a fan of raisins in baked goods. It was flaky, sweet, and quite delicious. Adding almonds is an optional ingredient and I would definitely recommend it (at least on the inside) as it gave it a nice extra crunch.
