Dark Chocolate BrowniesDark chocolate brownies just got healthier with this rich and creamy version.Orange Cranberry SconesThis recipe was inspired by the orange cranberry scones they offer at Starbucks. They were one of my mom's favorite desserts there, until she found the recipe and was able to make them at home. She passed the recipe along to me and I was able to make it plant-based to enjoy. These scones are a great sweet treat because the whole batch only contains 7 teaspoons of sugar. That's almost less than ½ a teaspoon per scone, and that's a whole lot less than your average dessert. The glaze adds a little bit more sugar, but it is always optional.Aquafaba MayonnaiseThis is the perfect light mayo for all your mayo needs! It’s much healthier than real mayo but doesn't lack in texture and flavor. The key to making plant-based mayo is the aquafaba liquid. The liquid comes from a can of cooked chickpeas or, alternatively, the leftover water from cooking your own chickpeas. This is a fun recipe to make, fast and easy, and a wonderful alternative to mayo with eggs. No one will know that you didn’t use eggs in this recipe… that is of course unless you tell them!Vegan Biscuits (KFC Style)Prior to switching to a plant-based diet, I grew up eating KFC. My favorite were the biscuits. I felt that I wanted to create a vegan version of this childhood favorite. There’s something about a warm, flaky, buttery biscuit that is so satisfying, especially during the holidays. Even if you’ve never had KFC biscuits, these are the perfect biscuits to have if you are looking to make biscuits and gravy. These are also great for breakfast sandwiches. Vegan Melted CheeseOne of the characteristics that people miss most about cheese when they stop using it is its texture when it melts. This version of vegetarian cheese has a texture very similar to melted cheese, and therefore is excellent for use in recipes such as Salvadoran pupusas or any other recipe that requires melted cheese.Chia PuddingChia seeds are well known for their high content of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. With this attractive presentation you can provide a pretty nutritious and healthy dessert on special occasions or whenever you like.Surprise CookiesBecause these cookies are made without refined flour, they are much healthier than other recipes since they have much more fiber and a good amount of protein. However, since they are sweetened, it is recommended that diabetics consume them in very moderate amounts and as part of a program to eliminate insulin resistance.Macaroni and CheeseWith this recipe, macaroni and cheese can be not only healthy, but delicious! There will be no more need to use commonly available ultra-processed mac and cheese on the market because this version will delight both children and adults.Shepherd’s PieThis is a traditional dish in many countries in Latin America as well in other places. The original version almost always has beef, therefore, contains lots of bad cholesterol. By using chickpeas and vegetables, this vegetarian version provides plenty of protein and fiber, as well as excellent taste and texture.
