Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins: Wholly-Nourished

“I am so happy that I finally nailed down the perfect recipe for a delicious gluten-free carrot cake muffin! I was going for dense, moist, oat-y, and hearty muffins and it took me a few tries to get there. Carrot cake, Easter, and spring are all closely related in my mind- I can’t wait to serve up these babies for Easter brunch! If you’d prefer to make an un-vegan version, just substitute the flax egg with a regular egg.” Read more…

Vegan Lemon Bunnies: Ana y La Passion

“Since I became vegan almost 7 month ago, and a bit longer back in time when the doctors has diagnosed me angiosarcoma (now I am symptom-free yuhuu), I am trying to eat more health focused foods (no sugar, less flour etc.).
