This is the time of year when I start thinking seriously about desserts. I mean, what is Thanksgiving without Pumpkin Pie or Christmas without cookies ?
Those of us who eat a whole food plant-based diet making desserts is really a challenge. There is a lot of substituting that has to be done. For most things it is relatively easy to substitute For example you can substitute:
- Milk = Nut milk
- Gluten based flours = gluten-free baking mix or brown rice flour
- Sugar = honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar or stevia
- Butter = Coconut Oil (more…)
