Beany Brownies

Originally made by Chocolate Covered Katie. I halve the recipe when I make it. My tweaks on the recipe = sub almond butter for oil, pumpkin rather than applesauce, add cocoa. Less chocolate chips. Stevia to sweeten.

Vegan Pumpkin Buttermilk Biscuits

Low fat and the pumpkin adds moisture, color and fiber. :)

Vegan Pot Pie Bake

Pot pie sans crust.
Serve as is or on top of homemade biscuits

Squash and Bean Casserole

No Sugar Vegan Coconut Rice Pudding

Nutritionals are for a LARGE 1 c. serving. An absolutely fantastic rice pudding. Full of sweet spiciness from the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and creamy soft rice. Delish hot or cold. Chill and top with fresh fruit or eat it hot the next morning for a quick breakfast.

Vegan Lower Calorie, Lower Fat "Puppy Chow"

Recipe in the works - this is my first, test attempt.
You've been warned! ;)

Super Fudgy Peanut Flour Protein Brownie

Dense, gooey and delicious. Fudgy rather than cakey.
The peanut flour makes the texture of these very smooth and creamy.

Dehydrated Kale Chips with Hummus

This tasty, healthy recipe makes it easy to get in some nutrition packed greens. The addition of hummus adds a punch of protein while the nutritional yeast adds B vitamins. Eat them when you crave something salty and crunchy!

Pumpkin Chocolate Pizzart!

My take on Chocolate Covered Katie's famous Pizzarts.
Base recipe from: http://www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pizzart!

My version of Chocolate Covered Katie's Pizzarts.
www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com


This one uses defatted peanut flour, a banana rather than oil and stevia to sweeten. A low calorie indulgence!

Vegan Lentil Loaf

A filling, calorie light, nutrient dense loaf that's easy to make and great with gravy and potatoes. :) Vegan comfort food without the guilt!

Mini Pumpkin Pie "Ice Cream" Cake

With no added fats and no additional sugars, this is a healthy, whole food dessert with loads of nutrition AND great taste.

Best Darn Vegan Chili Ever (soy free)*

This is a complex, hearty chili full of different colors, textures and tastes. The spice variety means there are a lot of different mingled flavor notes adding some really nice depth. The serving size is generous, too. Great!

Fluffy Sweet Banana Pancakes

from vegweb, slightly modified for no oil, stevia rather than sugar.

Chocolate Brownie Pancakes

It's like eating brownies for breakfast! We love these chocolate pancakes with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and sliced bananas.

Vegan Single Serving Protein Brownie*

A single serving = less temptation! Really good sized brownie with no added fat or refined sugars. Cook in your toaster oven and have dessert in less than 30 min. :D

You can nix the protein powder and just add another tbs of flour, too. The brownie/cake thingie is softer and more fudgy with the protein powder. It stays sort of creamy and moist in the middle - more like flourless cakes. The version without the protein is more a dense brownie with a normal crumb.

Low Fat, No Sugar Banana Muffins

These babies are almost fat free and use stevia and bananas for sweetness with no additional sugar. Add in the fact they are made with whole wheat pastry flour and are vegan and you've got a tasty, healthy breakfast or snack.

Raw Apple Pie

A tasty and light raw pie with no added oils or super processed sweeteners. Excellent for all the great apples just coming into season. I used Braeburns due to that being my go-to baking pie apple. Use any you like though... ones you enjoy eaten out of hand work well since they stay raw.

Vegan Cuban Black Beans & Rice with Plantain

Full of lots of different flavors and textures - plus protein and fiber. Delicious and easy meal.

Vegan Corn Bread*

Mildly sweet with a smooth crumb.

Single Serving Pumpkin Vanilla Protein Cake

A quick, tasty and low cal dessert for one.

Aaron's Favorite Brownie

More decadent single serving brownie... Good for when you want a "real" brownie, not a diety one. ;) I make this for my sweetie and eat the lower cal protein brownie usually. It's a really good brownie and worth the calories, IMO. Large serving size. ;)

Berry Banana Frozen Tartlets

These cool and creamy little bites make a delicious, healthy dessert.

Basic Coconut Milk Based Vanilla Ice Cream

Smooth and creamy - perfect for topping vegan brownies, making sundaes or root beer floats or as a simple dessert served straight up.

Coconut Cream Pie Pudding

An amazing, creamy dreamy dessert.
High protein (20 grams!), lower fat (5 or less!) and a serving size that's abundant and leaves you feeling satisfied. I love big servings of nutrient dense, calorie light food. :D

Vegan Chickpea "Tuna" Sandwich Filler

A delicious sandwich filling. Mmm.

These vegan pancakes are hearty and filling - with no added fat and no refined sugar!

Made with mostly oats instead of lots of flour this lightly sweet, hearty pancake is low calorie and delicious! No added fats or oils.

Raw Peanut Date "Cookie Dough" bites

Raw PB "cookie dough" to toss in chocolate banana "ice cream" to add some chewy awesomeness.

Or just eat it plain!

Vegan Raw "Ice Cream" PIe

An absolutely FANTASTIC, easy to make raw dessert.

Raw Single Serving "Ice Cream" Pie

Work in progress, this should be super tasty but I'm still bashing out the exact ingredient amounts. You might end up needing more crust, if so, double the recipe.

No added oils or sugars, just fruit, nuts and cocoa. YUM.

Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal

Like a bowl of warm pumpkin pie for breakfast!

Single Serving Vegan Green Tea Cake with Red Bean

Fantastic cake. Dense and lightly sweet with yummy bits of bean paste. :) No added oil/fat.

Just like mom used to make... if mom was a vegan!

VCTOTW Altered for lower cal: Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

(Can't believe I neglected to say this!) Recipe is Isa's from VCTOTW. Entered for my own calorie tracking purposes back in the day. Apologies to Ms. Isa! I didn't create this fine recipe, I just like it.

Sweet, moist pumpkin cupcakes laced with dark chocolate chips with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. I use Nunaturals stevia baking blend and make 'em fat free with fruit puree rather than oil. The original, unaltered version can be found on theppk.com, I believe. Or in her cupcake book. :)

Neat Loaf

A filling and tasty vegan "meat loaf" made with a wide variety of whole plant foods. A favorite of both herbivores AND omnivores. ;) Serve with oven roasted herbed potatoes and ketchup for dipping!

Low Fat Vegan Seitan Stroganoff

Amazing, plain and simple. In this recipe beef is replaced with protein rich, low fat seitan (wheat gluten) and sour cream is replaced with tangy soy yogurt. Vegan, fish-free Worcestershire and a good red wine vinegar add richness of flavor. Serve over whole wheat pasta.

Vegan Easy Swiss Roll Ice Cream Cake

Easy peasy! Trying to mimic those Swiss Roll ice cream and cake concoctions of my youth. You can also make a homemade cake and freeze it, then put it all together like this.

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

Delicious and easy to make.

Black Eyed Pea and Avocado Salsa

Delish with baked wheat crackers or just eaten cold. Gets better as the flavors mingle over time.

Seitan Jerky

It's easy to turn homemade seitan into delicious jerky - just use your dehydrator and a yummy marinade
