Easy Vegan Baking Recipes

Here are all the recipes on Veganbaking.net that are easy to make.

Vegan Protein Pancakes

Vegan Protein PancakesThis Vegan Protein Pancake recipe is perfect for breakfast if you really want to make sure you get an adequate dose of protein during the first meal of the day. They utilize your choice of just the right amount of hemp protein powder or soy flour and feature chopped walnuts to further increase the protein ante and add to the flavor department. Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger give these vegan pancakes a satisfying flavor that goes great with a splash of maple syrup (or fresh berries if you're hyperventilating at the idea of consuming too much sugar).

Vegan Protein Power Granola

This Vegan Protein Power Granola recipe is great for a hearty first meal of the day because it's low in sugar, high in protein and high in flavor. It gets the bulk of its protein from hemp protein powder. It then utilizes natural sweeteners like maple syrup, chopped dates and raisins for a complex sweetness profile that won't send blood sugar levels through the roof, if you don't drown it in maple syrup anyway. Walnuts and pecans round out the crunch department in this vegan granola while providing a tasty contrast with the hemp powder.

Vegan Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancakes

Vegan Pumpkin Buckwheat PancakesThis Vegan Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancake recipe features pumpkin enhanced with barley malt syrup, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Buckwheat flour then lends an earthy, nutty richness. They're delightful topped with a touch of almond butter, fruit and/or real maple syrup to brighten up any morning.

Vegan Pumpkin Molasses Cookies

Vegan Pumpkin Molasses Cookie RecipeThese Vegan Pumpkin Molasses Cookies are a perfect fall treat. They're fabulous, delicious, vegan AND can be made gluten-free. Also, baking them makes your whole house smell festive and cozy. Definitely best enjoyed with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

This Vegan Pumpkin Pie recipe features the pumpkin boosting flavors of cashew butter and barley malt syrup. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves further enhance flavors better than eggs ever could in this vegan pie. Flaky Pie Crust is recommended.

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cake

This Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cake recipe takes advantage of barley malt syrup's ability to really drive pumpkin flavors. This vegan cake is then enhanced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and a touch of lemon juice, making it perfect for special occasions during the Fall season.

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffins or Bread

Vegan Pumpkin Spice MuffinsThis Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe has a wonderful warm, buttery flavor that is enhanced by barley malt syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger and a touch of cloves. Pecans add flavor complexity and a delightful crunch. These vegan muffins are equally good with baked sweet potato purée substituted for the pumpkin as well.

Vegan Rice Crispy Treat Cupcakes | Gluten-free

Vegan Rice Crispy Treat CupcakesThis Vegan Rice Crispy Treat Cupcake recipe is the first thing I made after ordering Dandies Vegan Marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy. I feel like a kid again with these gluten-free treats. Vegan baking doesn't get much easier than melting Vegan Butter, marshmallows, adding vanilla extract then mixing in puffed rice. Making the vegan ganache is slightly more involved but still simple. Be sure to make these as close to your eating occasion as possible because Vegan Rice Crispy Treats love to dry out. If you need to make them a day or so beforehand, keep them in an air-tight container.

Vegan Rum Spice Icing

Vegan Rum Spice IcingThis Vegan Rum Spice Icing recipe is a great companion for drizzling on spiced versions of Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, danishes, or Pop Tarts. The vegan icing features powdered sugar for its base, dark rum, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves to move the spice factor forward. Feel free to cut back on the rum or eliminate it completely if you're concerned about alcohol consumption.

Vegan Soy Cream

Vegan Soy CreamThere's no such thing as a drop-in replacement for cream but this Vegan Soy Cream recipe comes pretty close when you need it for a substitute for baking. It can be used as a vegan base in custards, ice creams, sauces, cakes or anywhere else you'd like to add richness.

Vegan Spring Form Crusts | Gluten-free

Vegan Spring Form CrustVegan crusts are the foundation of many desserts so it’s important to treat them seriously. When making a crust for a springform pan, it’s important to have options that pair nicely with your dessert. One example is that you'd want to use a gluten-free crust with a gluten-free cheesecake. Regular cheesecakes go great with a graham cracker crust recipe but what if you’re not going the traditional route? That Vegan Apple Caramel Cheesecake might be better paired with a ginger snap cookie crust or a walnut crust. What if you’re doing something entirely different from a cheesecake or maybe you have a gluten intolerance? Maybe you want to take it to the next level and make a Vegan Chocolate Mouse with a hazelnut crust! Now you can do almost any type of spring form crust if you have access to dry cookies or nuts based on the recipe below.

Vegan Strawberry Fields Forever Cake

Strawberry Fields Forever CakeTrying to find a from scratch strawberry cake recipe was difficult, finding a vegan recipe was impossible! So after much research I finally dreamed (literally) up a recipe that is truly from scratch, truly vegan, truly easy and most importantly, truly delish! This Strawberry Fields Forever Cake comes out so moist that frosting is definitely optional.

Vegan Strawberry Thumbprint Anzac Cookies

Congratulations!
Strawberry Thumbprint Anzac CookiesAnzac cookies are probably one of my favorite cookies! The richness of coconut, the depth of Lyle’s golden syrup all held together with oats, flour and sugar…oh yeah, and your favorite non-dairy butter too! How incredibly delicious this mixture is. All I can say is THANKS AUSTRALIA for coming up with a perfect cookie. Australians call these cookies biscuits and they were developed during the first World War for the soldiers. They were perfect for travel because they do not contain milk or eggs, which means the soldiers had a yummy way to have sustenance while away. The one secret ingredient is Lyle’s Golden Syrup. I found mine at a local store that has an international section. Look where you might find ingredients from the UK, you will likely find this sweet gem. There’s only one way it could get better…add fruit! So which fruit goes well with coconut and oats? My pick is strawberry. I originally planned on making homemade strawberry jam but then got impatient (big surprise for those who know me) and bought a jar of organic strawberry preserves instead. I suppose that for this recipe you could use homemade jam and it would add another layer of deliciousness. These cookies are sweet, rich and the texture is a little chewy, a little soft…and A LOT delectable.

Vegan Sugar Cookies

Vegan Sugar CookiesThese Vegan Sugar Cookies are perfect for the Holidays or any time you feel like treating yourself. This recipe is on the shortbread side of things so they're nice and crispy. They can be rolled and cut with cookie cutters or pressed out of a cookie press. Dust them with coarse sugar, cinnamon, cardamom or all three if you're feeling frisky.

Vegan Sugar Glaze

This Vegan Sugar Glaze recipe is simple to make and perfect for topping everything from Pastries to Quick Breads and Muffins

Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo Pudding | Gluten-free

Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo PuddingThis Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo Pudding recipe features savory buttery flavor enhancers such as non-dairy milk, brown rice syrup, corn kernels, lime juice, just the right ratio of corn flour to corn meal and chopped tomatillos for a welcoming spicy finish. The result is a gluten-free vegan bread pudding that elevates corn to newfound status in the bread pudding world. You'll never need to go to another corporate American Tex Mex restaurant again to get it.

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie

I always thought properly made pumpkin pie was amazing until I tried sweet potato pie. Sweet potatoes are sweeter and the flavor is considerably more complex than pumpkin purée so that's why I was so excited to develop this Vegan Sweet Potato Pie recipe. This vegan pie is further enhanced with cashew butter, barley malt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves to create a flavor that will leave pumpkin in the dust. Try making it with Flaky Vegan Pie Crust.


Vegan Tropical Paradise Bars | Gluten-free

This Vegan Tropical Paradise Bar recipe makes perfect vegan energy bars for sporting events, a nutritious snack for people on the go or just for dessert. These gluten-free bars feature a cashew butter base that's sweetened with agave syrup, brown rice syrup then studded with pineapple chunks, macadamia nuts and shredded coconut.

Vegan Tropical Paradise Granola

This Vegan Tropical Paradise Granola recipe features shredded coconut, coconut oil, dried pineapple and dried mango. Cashew butter makes a creamy base that ties it all together. Savoring this vegan granola is kind of like going on vacation. Except without palm trees. And it's cheaper. And it tastes better.

Vegan Vanilla and Almond Crescents

Vegan Vanilla Almond Crescent CookiesThese Vegan Vanilla and Almond Crescents are an incredibly delicious biscuit with just the right amount of sweetness and lots of rich flavours from the almonds and vanilla. My choice of coconut oil for this (and most of my cooking) is the more refined kind, which is refined by filtering it through clay to remove the coconut taste and smell. This gives a ‘buttery’ flavour and texture to the baked good with all the goodness of coconut oil, but without being overwhelmed by coconut flavours.
