Wow... that's really good frosting!

Wow, that was really good frosting and really easy to make. I love how it melted when I poured it on those awesome cinnamon buns!

I made it way too early and it started to solidify. After 20 seconds in the microwave, it was ready for pouring. I really love how simple and good this recipe is :)

Mattie, seriously love all your recipes!

Tasty breakfast treat

So I wouldn't really call this french toast. If you make this expecting french toast, you'll be disappointed. As a breakfast treat, it's fairly tasty and I would make it again. It's extremely simple too.

The bread slices definitely need to be thick, but if you cut it too thick you mainly taste bread. My advice: do what the author says and make sure you only cut it one inch thick.

Also, the peach mixture doesn't really brown in the pan. It's still good, it just didn't get that nice golden, crunchy texture I was hoping for. It's still tasty and simple so go ahead, give it a go!

the BEST chocolate chip cookie EVER

Everyone that tried these cookies was in love, whether they were vegan or not. I can't tell you how GREAT these cookies are. I've tried lots of vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes, some came close to the traditional, but this by far is the BEST (better than the original)!

I had to substitute ENER G egg replacer for the flax seed, but other than that, I followed the recipe to a T. I love your tip for placing the cookie dough. Tearing it in half and then reforming it really makes a perfectly shaped chunky cookie!

Thanks again Mattie. I simply love all your recipes! Can't wait to make this again. The first round disappeared within days!

Vegan Heaven in a Cinnamon Roll

These are freaking AMAZING!!! I made these today for Christmas, and my husband who is not vegan says they are the best cinnamon rolls ever, hands down. The recipe is super easy to follow and the ingredients are all items you'd normally have on hand for baking. Well, except I didn't have any flax seed so I substituted it with some vegan EnerG egg replacer. Still turned out great!

Thank you so much for this recipe!!!! It's heaven for vegan baking. I can't wait to try your other recipes.

PS I didn't have any problems with the filling leaking out, as mentioned in an earlier review. I followed the recipe and it was perfect, PERFECT, i tell you!!!
