21 Sweet Vegan Dreams

Vegan desserts, food porn alert!

Look away if this will cause you to bake (or prep) up a storm and pig out! But to find the recipes if you dare, just tap “Click Here” under photos.

I’ve always been a bakery junkie; the smells alone that waft from those happy houses of sweet and rich are so very intoxicating, drawing one in like a bee to nectar, but much worse of course, as nectar is good for bees.

Those people who whip up these delectable, ultra-rich baked goods and desserts are like the Devil in Fairy Godmother finery to me. They’re like drug pushers. But since I went strictly vegan back in early 2009 I’ve managed to curb my luscious-sweets addiction with a healthy big bowl of mostly molasses sweetened cereal every morning.

Still, I can’t have the sorts of things in this recipe collection around and be alone with them. They whisper (or scream) my name relentlessly until I give in and start in on “just one dainty serving, like a normal person.” Then all bets are off…the whole bunch of it is going down the hatch, but slowly, as I’m a slow eater, always the last to finish a meal in any group. No eating-contest style wolfing for me. Anyhow, I must say a resounding NO to these luscious sweet concoctions, and can only dream, since all that sugar really wreaks havoc on our health.

I do envy those smuggies who can have a dainty slice of cake and then push the plate away and be done, really done. Me? Never. Unless there’s no more to be found. As long as it’s not on my radar and reachable, it’s safe. Sigh.

So on with those vegan desserts (or main dishes as with the pancakes), in random order…mmmmmmm!

bukowski meme
… “doubt” as in being skeptical of people and the world, and possibly of themselves. To me, “full of confidence” means unwarranted or ridiculous overconfidence, like the cardiac patient, bacon-cheeseburger lover boasting about being “top of the food chain, supreme over all the inferior creatures.” Truly deserved confidence is another matter, and is usually a far more humble thing. ~ Laura
