Raw Brownies & Vegan Banana Split Brownie Sundaes

Published February 20, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

While finishing tonight’s dinner of AFR’s Cauliflower Ricotta & Spinach lasagna, (post coming soon!) I had this brainstorm of an idea for dessert.

I used banana, topped with vanilla bean coconut ice cream, and one of the raw, vegan brownies I made last night using this recipe, drizzled with some yummy, caramelly, raw agave syrup.

The recipe for the brownies was super easy. 1 cup walnuts, 1 cup dates, and 1/4 cup raw cacao powder.

After processing until everything is well combined and crumbly, you press it into a small dish and freeze to firm up. (About 30 minutes should do it.) Then slice. I made 12 little tiny brownies. They’re definitely bittersweet and rich.

They were really perfect in the sundaes!

vegan apple crisp

Published May 9, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

my mom gave me a bunch of apples when i moved back, and i really needed to put them to good use. what better way to use them than to make my mom her favorite on mother’s day? apple crisp! apple crisp is just about vegan anyway, all that really changes is using vegan butter.

Vegan Apple Crisp

5 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Topping:
1 1/2 c. unbleached flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. oatmeal
1 stick  (1/2 lb.) cold vegan butter, diced

Directions:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350* F. Grease a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking dish. Dice butter and put back in the fridge until ready to use.

2. Combine the apples with sugar, and spices, and place evenly in dish.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter until mixture is crumbly, and butter is broken up into pea size pieces. Alternately, you can place the ingredients in a mixer bowl and use the paddle attachment at low speed until the texture is achieved. Cover the apples evenly with topping.

4. Bake uncovered for 1 hour. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
