1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup Earth Balance (dairy-free butter), softened
2 egg replacers (2 TBL of Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer whisked with 6 TBL of water)
4 heaping TBL of Tofutti Sour Cream (dairy-free)
2 mashed very ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 TBL ground flaxseed
Optional add-ins: walnuts, chocolate chip morsels
2 cups powdered confectioners sugar
juice of 1 lemon (about 4 TBL)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 1 loaf pan (or 2 mini loaf pans). In stand mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add in prepared egg replacer while mixer is on low. Add in Tofutti sour cream, bananas, and vanilla and mix well, stopping mixer and scraping down sides of bowl. On lowest speed, add in flour, baking soda, and flax and blend until combined. Add in optional ingredients and mix to combine.
Pour batter into load pan. Bake for 70 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes in pan. Turn out onto wire rack lined with parchment paper and continue to cool before cutting, about 30 minutes. Ice the top of the entire loaf and decorate with walnuts, or use the icing for individual slices and drizzle on cut slice prior to serving.
In a medium bowl, blend icing ingredients together with a hand mixer. Save and use on cooled loaf.
Tip: Sprinkle one end of the loaf with a few chocolate chip morsels, the other end with walnuts, and leave the middle alone. This will satisfy all taste-buds in your household. Use a spoon to work the added pieces down into the loaf prior to baking. If you use mini loaf pans, the baking time is approximately 45 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted to test for doneness comes out clean.
2 cups Silk Soy Vanilla
1 large box (3.8 oz) Dr. Oetker Organic Vanilla Pudding
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 10.14 oz box of SoyaToo Soy Whip (frig section, whip until firm peaks formed & refrigerate until ready to use)
1 graham cracker pie crust (Arrowhead Mills brand is honey and dairy free)
Make pudding on stove according to box directions using the 2 cups of Silk Soy Vanilla Milk. Cool completely before combining with other ingredients. Once chilled, stir pudding and add in pumpkin spice and pumpkin and whisk until combined. Fold in already whipped SoyaToo and combine ingredients. Spread in graham cracker pie crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours and enjoy. Garnish with whip topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
Tip: Sprinkle flaxseed on top of crust before pouring in pudding mixture, or sprinkle a little on top of your piece. Flaxseed adds fiber and omega-3.
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats
¼ cup Earth Balance, softened
¼ cup brown sugar
4 cups frozen berries (used mixed or any of your favorites)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, Earth Balance, and brown sugar until combined. In a 8” or 9” baking dish, lay in frozen berries. Crumble flour oat topping over the berries to cover. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the pie dish to catch any spills. Bake for 65 minutes. Serve warm garnished with a scoop of vanilla soy ice cream or some SoyaToo Rice Whip or Soy Whip topping.
*can make in individual ramekins if preferred.
1 14oz Silken Tofu
¾ cup chocolate chip morsels
½ cup Suzanne’s Ricemellow Crème
Remove tofu from container and discard liquid. Rinse tofu under cold water. Place tofu in between 2 paper towels and gently press to soak up any liquid. Place tofu in a blender and puree until smooth, scrapping down sides with spatula (approx 1 minute).
Melt chocolate chip morsels on paper plate in microwave (approx 60 seconds until soft). Add ricemellow and melted chocolate to blender and blend until combined, scrapping down sides with spatula (approx 2 minutes).
Pour into 6 dessert cups and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before eating. Add shaved chocolate to top for garnish. This is a healthy dessert recipe. Tofu supplies calcium and is low in calories.
This dessert is still highly delicious without the ricemellow creme.
1/2 cup Silk Soy Milk Very Vanilla
1 cup orange juice (I like Naked OJ)
1/2 banana, best if cut into pieces and frozen
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice
6 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients, except for ice, until smooth, combined, and frothy (30 seconds-1 minute). Add in ice and blend for another 30 seconds.
Makes about 2 cups
1 cup Earth Balance
½ cup superfine sugar
2 TBL maple syrup or Joseph’s Sugar Free Syrup*
3 cups Oatmeal (Bob’s Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats Whole Grain)
¼ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chip morsels *Optional (use 1/4 cup if making half with and half without chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. You can use a 9×13 cookie sheet or I like to use 12 cup muffin tin and put the silicone cups in the muffin tin to ensure the oat bars are firm and hold together. Cupcake liners work just as well.
Put 1 cup Earth Balance, sugar, and maple syrup in medium saucepan and melt over low heat. Remove pan from heat once melted and stir in oats and salt to butter mixture. Mix well until combined. Spoon into pan or silicone cups and press down firmly. Optional: add in chocolate chips if using. Bake 30 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 1 hour. Oats make this a healthy dessert recipe.
*Joseph’s Sugar Free Syrup is gluten-free and works well with this recipe. Keep refrigerated. I buy mine at Whole Foods.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar
2 TBL ground flaxseed
1/2 cup chopped nuts *Optional (walnuts and pecans work well)
2 TBL Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer whisked with 6 TBL water
3 ripe bananas, mash with a fork
1/2 cup olive oil (or a vegetable oil of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
In a medium size bowl, add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and flaxseed. Mix well to combine. Add in nuts, if using, prepared egg replacer, mashed bananas, oil, and vanilla. Mix well until all of the ingredients are combined.
Pour batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan. Flip pan over to remove loaf and continue to cool on a piece of parchment paper or wire rack covered with parchment.
*Tip: you can add in nuts once you pour the batter into the pan. I like to make half without nuts, 1/4 with pecans and 1/4 with walnuts. I use a knife to work the nuts into the batter and lay a few of the same nuts on top of the batter.
1 ½ lbs fresh blueberries (or 24 oz frozen)
½ cup light brown sugar
Juice from ½ lemon (discard seeds)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TBL cornstarch or arrowroot powder

In a large saucepan, heat the blueberries over medium-high heat until they begin to boil. Simmer gently for 10 minutes.
Add brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Mix the cornstarch or arrowroot well with the water. Pour mixture into the simmering blueberries while stirring. Cook and stir until mixture becomes clear and thick. Continue to cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool.
Spoon mixture into already baked pie crust and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Whip up SoyaToo Soy Whip to stiff peak and put a dollop on your slice of pie. Garnish with mint sprig. This is a healthy dessert recipe. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants.
