Vegan Gluten-Free Fudgey Brownies

Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t enjoy a good, fudgey, chocolatey brownie? As I’d already been introduced to the wonderful world of vegan baked goods before becoming vegan, I had no tragic misconceptions that I would have to forego my beloved chewy treats once making my change.

Vegan, Caramel, Gluten-free Cheesecake (Yes Please)

The typical vegan cheesecake recipe involves a cashew base. Having over-indulged on all things cashew at the start of my vegan journey, I developed a bit of a sensitivity to the nut. I tend to get super bloated and pained when I eat cashews now, so I had mostly ruled out cheesecake for the foreseeable future. Until now…┬áThis recipe does not use any cashews!

Breakfast: Tofu Scrambled Eggz & Vegan Cheeze Herb Biscuits

I still salivate thinking about it… But! I have found a few very good alternatives. This morning’s Tofu Scrambled Eggs, paired with these delicious Vegan Gluten-Free Herb and Cheese Biscuits and my Vegan Matcha Latte, breakfast had me forgetting the oozing egg yolk — thank goodness!
