For my college roommate’s bridal shower, I made a vegan treat since she recently became vegan. It was hard finding a recipe for which I had all the ingredients at home, but then I found this one! It really did come out delicious, but be sure to keep it chilled until you eat it and thaw the frozen fruit before placing on the caramel filling. Very easy and delicious! Congratulations again Karen and Zach!

Crust Ingredients

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups raisins
Filling Ingredients 
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or 1/2 cup date paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Water, if needed

Topping Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen berries (or however much you want)
  • 1/2 cup goji berries

Crust Directions

Pulse the walnuts in your food processor until they become a rough flour. Add the raisins and process until it stick together, forming a rough dough. Press into a tart tin. Put in the fridge and let it set for about 2 hours (this is preferable but not absolutely necessary).

Filling Instructions
Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Spread gently into the bottom of your tart crust and then let it harden in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Now top the tart off with all the berries, slice and serve!

My sister and I made our first vegan recipe and they were a nice, fluffy surprise!

CUPCAKES

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon white or apple cider vinegar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) cupcake pans with 14 cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together coconut milk, oil, vanilla, and vinegar.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until just combined. Do not over mix.

Fill the cupcake liners about two-thirds full with batter.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean with a few crumbs clinging to it. Cool the cupcakes completely before frosting.

FROSTING

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unrefined coconut oil (should be solid at room temperature)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 5 tablespoons coconut milk (or other nondairy milk)

Directions

Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the coconut oil until smooth. With the mixer running on low, add powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon coconut milk at a time, as needed, until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. You may not need to use all of the coconut milk. Beat on high for 2 more minutes until light and fluffy
