Soy-free Vegan Baking Recipes

Here are all the recipes on Veganbaking.net that are soy-free!

Cherry Candied Almonds

Vegan Cherry Candied AlmondsThis Cherry Candied Almond recipe is an excuse for me to combine two of my most favorite flavor combinations: cherries and almonds. I used brown sugar and olive oil for a more complex sweetness profile and just the right amount of almond extract to bind the cherry and almond flavor in holy matrimony. Try these as a relatively guilt-free vegan snack, add them to salads or sprinkle them on your ice cream.

Vegan Cornmeal Spelt Pizza Crust

Vegan Cornmeal Spelt Pizza CrustThis Vegan Cornmeal Spelt Pizza Crust recipe is one of the fastest, easiest crusts around because it doesn't need lots of kneading and it doesn't require yeast. Although it's not gluten-free, it does have very low amounts of gluten which is good if you're trying to cut back on it due to food allergies. This recipe makes a vegan crust that is 12 to 14 inches. This dough can also be refrigerated for later use.

Vegan Pecan Caramel Chews

Vegan Pecan Caramel ChewsThese chewy Vegan Pecan Caramel Chews are reminiscent of those little caramels you used to get from trick or treating when you were little, except they're packed with pecans and dipped in chocolate! Be sure to use a candy thermometer with this vegan caramel recipe for best results. If you like your caramel extra soft or extra hard, adjust the caramelization temperature 10F (6 C) lower or 10F (6 C) higher respectively.

Vegan Everything Bagels

Vegan Everything BagelsI know that one day I won't have access to my favorite bagel place on Bedford ave in Brooklyn on my way home from the bars to grab a late night snack. This Vegan Everything Bagel recipe will hopefully keep me content in those times. Enjoy these vegan bagels with Tofutti cream cheese, Creamy Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese, my more involved Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese or whatever else floats your fancy. I've designed these bagels in the authentic NY style which uses barley malt, also known as malted barley. Barley malt is highly recommended but if you don't have it just use an additional one-half Tablespoon sugar in its place. Be sure to allow ample time for this recipe- it takes about two hours. If you live further than two hours away from New York City, this recipe will be easier than flying there for the flavor.

Vegan Dark Velvet Ganache

Dark Velvet Vegan GanacheGanache can be a very versatile base for a recipe. It can be adapted to anything from frostings to truffles to fillings. Just adjust the Soy or Cashew Cream in this Vegan Dark Velvet Ganache recipe plus or minus up to 2 Tablespoons to get the thickness that suits your needs. For example: 2 more Tablespoons Soy Cream, Cashew Cream or non-dairy milk will make this ganache solidify into a soft frosting-like consistency at room temperature. 1 cup of Soy or Cashew Cream yields ganache that is perfect for cakes. You can even customize it further with things like Grand Marnier, Chambord, espresso or mint extract.

Vegan Cashew Cream

Vegan Cashew CreamThere's no such thing as a drop-in replacement for cream but this Vegan Cashew Cream recipe comes pretty close when you need it for a substitute for baking. It can be used as a vegan base in custardsice creamssaucescakes or anywhere else you'd like to add richness. Cashew cream is also soy-free and can be made raw if you obtain raw ingredients.

Balsamic Candied Pecans

Vegan Balsamic Candied PecansThese Balsamic Candied Pecans are great for salads, ice cream or just random munching. It's one of those examples of how balsamic vinegar can mysteriously elevate certain foods to food crack status. This vegan recipe also features a touch of molasses and salt that work behind-the-scenes to enable proper texture and complex flavors. Don't like molasses? Too bad! Or should I say, "please add it. Pretty please?" It's essential for allowing the proper texture and flavors come through. You shouldn't be able to taste it in the finished product. Oh and here's a little secret: Put these babies in your next pecan pie for a secret candy coated weapon that's sure to wow your pie eating brethren.

Vegan Peanut Butter Maple Fudge

Vegan Peanut Butter Maple FudgePeanut butter and maple syrup have this amazing relationship. I think they might be in love with each other. This Vegan Peanut Butter Maple Fudge recipe is really easy to make and you have the option of adding chocolate chips if you want to crank up the flavor/passion levels even more.

Banana Delight

Vegan Banana DelightOne wonderful summer in lovely Northern California, I had the pleasure of camping with one of my favorite people ever (who I'll just call Alf). That night he introduced me to something I'll never forget...Banana Delight! Serve with some quality sipping whiskey and good friends.

Enchanted Oven Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Enchanted Oven Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookiesI 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.

Vegan Chocolate Covered Date Bonbons

Vegan Chocolate Covered Date BonbonsMost people won't be able to guess that these Vegan Chocolate Covered Date Bonbons are just chocolate covered dates if you don't tell them. One thing that they will know is that they're amazing. You can tell them that you spent 13 hours making the filling in this vegan bonbon recipe and just leave it at that.

Vegan Date Spice Pudding | Fruit Sweetened

This Vegan Date Spice Pudding recipe features the malty flavor of medjool dates enhanced by spices such as cinnamon, ginger and vanilla extract. This vegan pudding is a cinch to make and 100% fruit sweetened.

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic Bars

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic BarsThis Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic Bar recipe is quite possibly the only good thing I got from going to church as a youngster. Sundays were free-for-all sugar fests that kept the kids coming. This vegan dessert in particular often inspired me to secretly infiltrate the church kitchen with ninja-like abilities so I could get to it first while the church service was still in session.

Magic Bars are also known as Seven Layer Bars because they often involve seven alternating layers of things like walnuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips and shredded coconut that are bonded together with a liberal drizzling of condensed non-dairy milk. I opted to forego the peanut butter chips and butterscotch chips due to their near-impossible vegan availability and because they usually push the sweetness envelope a little too far. I then made up for their lack of flavors by opting for Golden Vegan Caramel Sauce or Easy Vegan Caramel Sauce instead of Vegan Condensed Non-dairy Milk in the binding department. The result is a sticky gooey mess of a great thing.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter GranolaThis Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola recipe brings possibly one of the best flavor combinations known to man to the granola world. This allows this vegan granola to be extremely versatile, being equally good for breakfast, sprinkled on top of ice cream or enjoyed all by itself for a mid day snack.

Vegan Blueberry Beetnik Muffins or Bread

Vegan Blueberry Beetnik Muffins or Bread This Vegan Blueberry Beetnik Muffin recipe takes advantage of baked beets which harbor wonderful butter caramel flavors when their sugars caramelize. The vegan muffins are then complimented by the tartness of blueberries and just the right ratio of whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour. Lemon juice enhances flavor while allowing the beet purée to retain its vibrant reddish color during baking. This is because acids reduce the oxidation of plant-based compounds called anthocyanins, which are responsible for the red color in foods like beets and raspberries.

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 Lemon Poppy Seed Granola

This Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Granola recipe is a great way to start the day due to its bright lemony sweetness and crunchy almonds that go perfectly with the non-dairy milk of your choice.

Hearty Vegan Waffles

Hearty Vegan WafflesThis Hearty Vegan Waffle recipe makes light and fluffy vegan waffles sporting a nice crispy exterior and a soft, moist interior due to the use of toasted cornmeal. They're delightful topped with a touch of almond butter, fruit and/or real maple syrup.

Vegan Multigrain Waffles

Vegan Multigrain WafflesGrowing up, my Dad would make pancakes every Sunday. On the rare occasions he made waffles, I knew he was pulling out all the stops for Sunday breakfast. Inspired by the waffles I grew up with, I created this Vegan Multigrain Waffle recipe that features rolled oats, whole wheat flour and your choice of toasted corn meal, oat bran or wheat germ. Top it with real maple syrup or fresh organic berries to be transported back to my dining room circa 1985.

Poached Pears in Red Wine

This recipe for Poached Pears in Red Wine is perfect for last minute dinner parties because its easy to make and can be quickly made onsite. It features red wine enhanced with orange juice, sugar, lemon zest and cinnamon. The pears are then simmered in the mixture causing the sugars in the pears to caramelize and generate a multitude of wonderful flavor compounds that generally translates to "mmmmm". Oh and they taste awesome dolloped with vegan whipped cream or soy yogurt too.
