I'd like to say Spring has sprung, but unfortunately for some of us in Canada, it's currently snowing outside! So to get in the Spring of things (see what I did there) I'm baking up some bright, fresh, and oh so delicious vegan desserts. Starting with this simple rustic vegan berry chocolate tart. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake.
Spring is here and we are celebrating with this super easy, one bowl chocolate chunk vegan blondies! Don't let the golden delicious color fool you, these vegan blondies are all the gooey, crunchy, chocolatey goodness you want from a brownie but in a lighter spring version. They are so quick and easy to make they only take one bowl, a few ingredients, and 30 minutes--leaving you plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather!
Spring is in the air and this girl couldn't be happier! I love the changing of the seasons, I find it so inspiring. The warming weather has me craving different foods and the longer brighter days give me more energy for creating. This cranberry apple crisp is super simple and very Spring inspired. The tart cranberries are beautifully balanced with fresh apples and will hit that warm crunchy sweet spot thanks to the oat crisp crumble.
Let me introduce you to your new favourite, super easy, VEGAN dessert! Since I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day, I figured if I must participate it will be to demonstrate my love for food. What better way to celebrate love than a rich and creamy vegan cashew chocolate mousse cake. This decadent vegan chocolate cake is made with just a few simple ingredients that won't have you feeling bad for having a second slice. After all, life is about balance and the heart wants what the heart wants!
One of the best part about the changing of seasons is the new foods that we begin to introduce back into our lives. For fall and winter, we’re always looking for comforting vegan foods like apples and cinnamon. This vegan recipe combines both those fall favourites in a tasty and versatile dessert dish.
 I bet you would never imagine you'd see a recipe for how to make chocolate sauce with chickpeas that is healthy and vegan? Well add this sauce to your list of dessert recipes because this might become your new fav. Warning! It's addictive, but disclaimer, it's healthy! Win win.
Okay, I know I'm bias but these are seriously bomb AF! This recipe is not a typical FoodByMaria recipe as it does have butter and sugar but hey, balance is key! This recipe is easy to make, versatile, gooey, and sooooooooooo good that it's making my mouth water just typing this. These brownies are perfect for your next party, or to just make up for a sweet treat for yourself because you deserve it!
