The Top 3 Vegan Desserts You Should Make For Christmas This Year
December is upon us, which means Christmas is just around the corner. A day of family bonding, gift exchanges, religious observance, and holiday feasting, Christmas is definitely a holiday that revolves around food.
If you want to impress everyone this Christmas with your vegan creativity, try out these top 3 vegan desserts this month:
1. Sweet Potato Brownies
Sweet potatoes can substitute for a lot of sweets-based meals, masking the fact that a potato was used in your dessert. Instead of eggs and butter, you can use a sweet potato in your brownie, mixed in with layers and layers of chocolate and vegan fudge.
2. Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Vegan and gluten-free, these cookies will be a holiday hit at your Christmas dinner. Everyone loves the combo of cranberry and chocolate, especially during the holidays, which means folding the two of them together in one vegan-based chocolate dough will have everyone coming back for more. We bet that your guests won’t even know that they are vegan. Throw together some flaxseed meal, gluten-free flower, brown sugar, baking soda, and mix it all together with dairy-free chocolate chips, layering the cranberries in at the end.
3. Sweet Cherry Tarts
Warm, red colored desserts are perfect for the Christmas season. Grab some organic cherries at the grocery store, add in some cane sugar, lemon juice, flour, salt, vanilla extract, and you’re well on your way to making a deliciously sweet and seriously satisfying Christmas treat. For a gluten-free version, substitute in gluten-free flour.
Holiday Vegan Treats
Although your guests may turn their nose up to your desserts upon hearing the word vegan, persuade them to give these delicious and totally satisfying desserts a try during your holiday celebrations.
As always, don’t forget our milk free chocolate at No Whey Chocolate, easily folded into any cookie, brownie, or tart batter. Our chocolate is also nut free, gluten free and free of all eight common allergens.
