Is it possible to bake incredibly beautiful and delicious vegan desserts that are healthy, too?
If you want to make healthier and more nutritious baked desserts from scratch, without sacrificing flavor or texture, Healthy Vegan Baking is for you.
Probably 99 % of the vegan recipes out there exclude animal products, but they contain massive amounts of refined sugars (sometimes even more than traditional recipes), tons of saturated fats, and empty calories.
The key to delicious, healthy vegan baked goods is to start with wholesome, natural ingredients and combine them using the right pastry-making techniques.
Some examples taught in this course?
These baked, gluten-free doughnuts are neither fried nor yeasted, but made from roasted fresh pumpkin which, in addition to providing a good dose of nutrients, contributes to a super fluffy, tender texture. Spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and cardamom, these doughnuts are packed with flavor. And they are sure to elicit a “wow” from anyone who sees them.
This version gets so close to the flavor and texture of the famous original Italian dessert that no one will ever suspect that it contains no gluten, no dairy, and no eggs. Made with biscuits of tender gluten-free sponge cake soaked in espresso and sweet wine, and a velvety, light-as-air vegan mascarpone cream, the result is a delightful and refined dessert that is very hard to resist.
Orange & Polenta Cake
There is something a bit magical about making a perfectly fluffy and airy gluten-free cake from scratch without using processed ingredients. Behind the magic, there is the proper technique to whip aquafaba to stiff peaks.
Extra-virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed orange juice or grated ginger are just some ingredients. The “icing” on the cake? A big portion of fresh almond ricotta!
