One of the most common questions we are asked is for EASY vegan baking ideas. Well, we’ve got TWO for you. Both are simple and use familiar ingredients. They’re also super for kids to help with and as the days grow cooler, what is more comforting than the wonderful aroma of home-baked treats from your own oven? First, try Chai Spice Rolls.
To make these, you’re going to use crescent-style dough in a tube. Yes, that’s right. I said crescent-style dough in a tube! Believe it or not, most brands of crescent-style dough, including Pilsbury, Giant and Trader Joe’s, are all vegan! (I bet you are doing a happy dance right now, imaging the return of crescent-style rolls to your vegan holiday table. )
Chai Spice Rolls are a snap to put together. They’re also tasty enough to serve to company or at Sunday Brunch. There is a delightful surprise on the inside when you bite into a creamy filling, flavored with exotic chai tea, ginger and maple syrup. This is also a great recipe to have kids help with, or to serve to guests who are spending a long holiday weekend at your house! Click on over to Sister Eden for the recipe now.
Want more easy vegan baking? Try Peach Whirligigs! This original recipe comes from our pal Kristin at The High Impact Vegan, who veganized a family recipe. And with good reason. It’s freaking delicious! This time the easy baking secret is Bisquick. Yes, that’s right, old school Bisquick is vegan, too! There are even three kinds of Bisquick – original, heart-smart and gluten-free. So take your pick!
Peach Whirligigs are usually made with fresh peaches, however, in the winter when they’re not in season, we have found that canned peaches work just fine. The flavor is simple and bright, and really, this is like sunshine on a plate.
This is another recipe we have cross-posted to Sister Eden, so please hop over there to check it out. And while you’re surfing the internet, be sure to visit Kristin’s vegan blog, too.
