Cherry Chocolate Mousse Pie. 
I couldn’t find graham crackers void of honey so for this pie I did buy a Keebler pre-made graham cracker pie crust. No honey and I scanned it with my app “Isitvegan?” 
You will need to soak 1/2 cup of dried cherries until softened.
Combine the following in a food processor until smooth:
1/2 Cup of the soaked dried cherries (drained)
12 Oz. of Silken Tofu
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs. Agave
10 Oz. Melted chocolate chips
Once it is combined and smooth, pour it into your Graham Cracker crust, cover , and refrigerate until firm. About 2-4 hours. 
I topped it with Soyatoo .

Vegan Corn Bread  

Preheat Oven to 425 degrees.  Prepare an 8” square baking tray with non-stick spray. I use Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray. 

Mix

  • 6 TBS warm Water
  • 2 TBS Ground Flax Seed

Set aside to thicken. 

In a large Bowl, with a fork or whisk combine:

  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Corn meal ( I use Bob’s Red Mill Stone ground)
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Tsp Salt

Add the following to the dry ingredients:

  • The Ground Flax Seed Mixture
  • 1/4 Cup Canola Oil
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk (or soy if you prefer)

Once all the ingredients are combined, dump it in your prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes (maybe a bit more…use a toothpick to check)

Cool on Wire rack for 10 min. 

Add Earth Balance and drizzle your piece with some agave.  Enjoy!

It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week!
I tried a new recipe that called for 1TBS of Tapioca Flour. I hate buying ingredients for 1 recipe but found it in the bulk section of New Frontiers. I probably bought 1/2 cup and spent around $1. 

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
In a Large bowl, Mix the following together for 2 minutes. (don’t cheat…you need the full 2 minutes):
2/3 Cup Canola Oil
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Almond Milk 
1 TBS Tapioca Flour
Stir in:
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix in:
1 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
Mix in:
1/2 Cup Flour
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
I use a cookie scoop. I usually scoop out 12 on 1 cookie sheet and then maybe 6 more on another. 
Bake for 8 minutes. 
Cool on Cookie tray for about 5 minutes
Place on wire racks. 
This is our favorite soft batch Chocolate Chip Cookie.  Try making ice cream sandwiches with them!
