A fast dessert, it takes 15 minutes to put this vegan apple crisp together. Start making it just before your dinner, then let it bake while you eat. If you have kids, this is a great recipe, they will be more than happy to be your helpers; you do the apples and they mix it all together using their (clean) hands.
Apples belong to the “dirty dozen”, so if your apples are not organic, then do peel them.
Will a decadent slice of moist cake with whipped filling and rich chocolate frosting or a bowl of cookies tempt you? A fat burning dessert? Is it possible to make vegan and fat burning desserts with no gluten, no refined sugars, and no dairy? Of course, one can always grab a piece of fruit, but that’s not what I mean here. This brownie recipe is without grain, refined sugar or dairy. It will be the first of many similar decadent desserts and snacks to come.
The recipe calls for egg substitute, you can either buy “vegan eggs” or make your own. I usually use flax seeds and water: 1 tbsp ground Flax seeds + 3 tbsp Water =1 egg.
Even though this is a healthy dessert it’s still a dessert and must be treated as a treat 🙂 so don’t overindulge!
Vegan pancakes without eggs, milk and butter are such a treat. A pancake is a flat cake, often thin, and round, prepared from a starch-based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan. In Britain, pancakes are often unleavened and resemble a crêpe. In North America, a raising agent is used (typically baking powder). Here’s a vegan recipe the British way.
1/2 cup / 50 g oats
1/2 cup / 60 g buckwheat flour
(for those not sensitive to gluten, use 1 cup / 120 g of wheat flour instead of buckwheat & oat)
1-1/2 cups / 3.5 dl dairy free milk
1-2 tbsp agave nectar or date syrup
