Gone Pie Vegan Bakery was kind enough to submit this Vegan Gluten-Free Pie Crust. Thanks Barbara!
This year we went with a new pie crust for our gluten-free vegan holiday pies. It is adapted from the wheat-free crust we have been making for years. I think it actually held together better and was an all around better crust than its inspiration. It is not a crust without issues. Using both tree nuts and gluten-free oats
, it is not for everyone!
This Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust recipe makes enough crust for one 10 inch tart crust or three 7 inch crusts.
Some of us may remember chia seeds from those ch-ch-chia pet commercials in the 80's. Well they're back! It turns out that ch-ch-chia can b-b-bind. They work similarly to flax seeds
in that when ground, the mixture forms a mucilage
, also known as goop, and pulls together when heated. Perfect as an egg replacer in things like vegan cakes
or anywhere else you'd want to substitute an egg. Like flax seeds they also contain protein, fiber and are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Just be sure to use white chia seeds. The darker varieties will be visible in your finished product. White chia seeds can be found online if they're not available at your local health food store.
I used to own a vegan baking company called Enchanted Oven Baking Co
. This Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie was one of the cookies I sold, individually packaged, to health food stores around the San Francisco Bay Area around 2003-2005. Here it is in all its glory. This recipe has been modified from a 200 cookie batch so please excuse the wonky measurements.
Brown rice syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and just the right amount of chocolate chips really brings out the best in these dense, chewy peanut butter cookies.

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.

Walnuts and pecans round out the crunch department in this vegan granola while providing a tasty contrast with the hemp powder.
This Munchable Vegan Multigrain Granola recipe has a complex, hearty flavor due to the high protein grains such as amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat that it features.

Raisins are added for additional sweetness and flavor depth and a touch of vanilla extract ties the flavors together into a dense and hearty muffin.
This Hearty Vegan Breakfast Muffin recipe was created because I wanted a healthy, hearty vegan muffin that provided good energy for the first meal of the day without giving me a mega-dose of sugar like most other muffins often do. These fruit sweetened muffins contain no refined sugar, more protein, complex carbs and fiber than most other muffins because they feature ingredients like dates, raisins, walnuts, rolled oats, hemp protein powder or soy flour, maple syrup and molasses. These ingredients lend a delightfully complex taste and contribute to a dense hearty texture. They're easy to make and provide about one week of breakfasts. Try them topped with almond butter.
