Pumpkin Pie Cookies

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

It’s no secret that I have an addiction to anything pumpkin. Not only do I adore the subtlety sweet flavor, but it adds a wonderful moistness to bake goods. A couple years ago I found the perfect recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies that just melt in your mouth. To make these babies even more indulgent I created a mascarpone brown sugar buttercream to strike the perfect balance between gooey cookie and rich, creamy frosting. If […]

By Ashley | Breakfast , Recipes , Smoothie , Snack

Also, the banana adds just enough sweetness to prevent it from tasting too green. If you are a fan of coconut milk or want to avoid nuts, it’s a great substitute for the almond milk. Sometimes I will add nut butter […]

Vanilla-Coconut Macaroon Pancakes (2 ways)

By Ashley | Breakfast , Recipes

Sometimes I just want pancakes. But not just any pancakes – sophisticated pancakes inspired by a cookie – in this case the classic coconut macaroon. I’ve been going through a coconut phase lately so when I got a craving for pancakes I thought “why not fill these guys with as much coconut flavor and texture as possible?!” Hence the coconut flakes, coconut milk, shredded coconut, and coconut oil, oh and coconut sauce. I’ve also been making […]

Be Your Own Barista

By Ashley | Recipes

So . . . Tuesday is the first class at the Vegan Cafe in quite a while. Yayyy! I happen to be the teacher and I am thrilled that I got to choose the topic: Raw Brownies, Hot Chocolate, and Lattes (Visit for details). This time of year I live on hot beverages and I assume that I am not alone. For me, the greatest disadvantage of raw food is that it’s not hot . […]
