Adventures in [vegan] baking

3 Apr

This post qualifies my earlier statement about my insanity — see post on running.

To explain: our clinical group at school is having a potluck to celebrate the end of our rotation and the semester. I thought I’d bring a dessert. I offered to make something for the needy people who have special diets in our group because it was going to be gluten free anyways. Then a classmate told me one of the girls in our group is vegan and would never say anything about it. Challenge accepted.

So after shuffling through countless blogs I found this:

Now normally, I make substitutions and change recipes as I see fit. Not this one. I followed the recipe exactly, added only a few minutes of baking time to help it set and voila. SO DELICIOUS. Their only downfall — they are super crumbly. Moist and fudgy, but they fall apart.

No pictures this time. It was a mess…but trust me, this is an incredible recipe. It doesn’t taste vegan-y or gluten-free-ish at all. 100% chocolatey, even with the coconut cream!

You only live once,
