Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake with graham cracker style crust. Easy Creamy Pumpkin Cheesecake to please everyone. Gluten-free with gluten free crust. Soy-free Recipe.
I made this cheesecake over Thanksgiving and I think I have found my favorite holiday dessert. It is creamy, lightly tangy, pumpkiny, spicy and all things holiday, fall and dessert. Its lighter, creamier and spicier than a pumpkin pie and oh so good. This has just the right amount of pumpkin and the cheesecake flavor balance which I like much more.
Its a simple recipe. Blend the pumpkin with soaked cashews, non dairy yogurt sweetener and pumpkin pie spice. Bake to set, then chill until ready to serve. Serve with whipped coconut cream, or vanilla ice cream or califlornia cabin (its a fabulous flavor from local Seattle vegan ice cream shop frankie and Jos). Make this cheesecake for a party or for yourself as you might not want to share!

As much as I love Summer and long days, a bit of slow down and catch up is helpful to recharge for the new year. Lets start up some jar gifts with these warm, buttery, chewy vegan Cowboy cookies.
These Coconut, Oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies are super tasty and make a great mix to gift. Layer everything nicely in a jar. To Bake, empty into a bowl, add applesauce and oil, chill, shape and bake. I am wondering why it took me so long to make these cookies. They are just the right amount of chewy, fun, delicious and also make great snack cookies.
Use small flaked coconut to make the cookies less chewy and less crumbly. The mix can keep for months!
Vegan Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Pumpkin Caramel Glaze. Oil-free. These Easy Scones use coconut cream instead of oil and make for a great breakfast with the pumpkin glaze. Vegan Recipe
Last few weeks of the year and of pumpkin and squash. I have been playing catch up the blog posts since book release and hopefully will have a list of posts lined up by January rather than running to post every week. Though I get most of my ideas when I am super busy, so more good food coming up.
I made these scones last week with coconut cream and no oil or butter, and they turned out fabulously. If you keep everything chilled, they turn out flaky and crisp and melt in your mouth. Pumpkin does add extra moisture, so they will soften eventually. These are best served right out of the oven. The glaze is a simple caramel-ish mix of pumpkin, coconut milk and sugar, all amply spiced with pumpkin pie spice.

The batter for this Cinnamon Roll bread uses besan (brown chickpea flour) and uses citric acid to add air to the batter before baking. The principle of using citric acid in gluten-free baking is similar to aquafaba, To add air to the batter before baking. This method is used in Indian snacks and baking since decades. You can possible used whipped up aquafaba instead in this recipe. Whipping up aquafaba is not my cup of tea (too much noise and too long a process). Nor is the canned liquid.
