Chocolate Chip Espresso Brownies

These chocolate chip espresso brownies are the BEST brownies. They’re moist and soooooo chocolate-y! The instant espresso powder gives them a deeper chocolate flavor that anyone will love. This is adapted with slight changes to a vegan espresso brownie recipe from Pacific Foods. For my version, I use almond milk, safflower oil, and replace the […]

Easy Applesauce Bread

I absolutely love this easy applesauce bread recipe from The Simple Veganista. In her recipe, Julie uses unsweetened almond milk to substitute for oil. I used oil when I made it because I love the classic sweet bread texture. To make an oil free version of this recipe, though, just use 1/3 cup of plant […]
