Cheesecake is one of the most iconic New York City desserts. When coming up with recipes for NYC Vegan, we knew we had to have a New York style cheesecake.

Here is how a simple shopping trip led to the creation of a recipe. Our Loaded Crispy Rice Treats are a direct result of grocery shopping. While Ethan and I were shopping at our local Whole Foods we saw a package of “Crispy Treats,” also known as Rice Krispie Treats, but without paying for using the name. Hoping that these might be vegan, Ethan picked them up and checked the ingredient list. in light of the fact that the store carries Dandies and Sweet and Sara* marshmallows, it was not completely unreasonable to think that these could be vegan. Well, they aren’t. Check out the 3rd line. At least Whole Foods had the courtesy of letting us know that not only do these contain gelatin, but the gelatin comes from pig bones. Lovely. By this time however, the genie was out of the bottle and we were wanting crispy rice treats. We

The idea for these Banana Split Pancakes came from a request to try BananaWave BananaMilk. These pancakes are like having a banana split for breakfast, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Our Bailey’s French Toast turns a breakfast classic into a dessert sensation. However, if you want to have it for breakfast we are cool with that. In fact, invite us over.

Our Chocolate Chunk Cookies are big and thick, with what we consider the ideal ratio of cookie dough to chocolate chunks.

CH-CH-CH-Chia! Just one ounce (roughly 2 tablespoons) of chia seeds hits your recommended daily allowance of a lot of important things, such as 17% of the RDA of calcium, 23% of the RDA of magnesium, 12% of the RDA of iron, 5 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber! Ethan’s been playing around with chia seeds and has come up with great ways of eating them.

Our Caramel Oat Bars give our S’more Cookie Bars a run for the money. Creamy caramel and rich chocolate between two layers of crisp oatmeal cookie make these bars hard to resist. You can use any caramel sauce you like, or you can make your own with our simple recipe. These bars taste so decadent, but no one needs to know how easy they are to make. These do need time to cool in the refrigerator before cutting, so be sure you allow time for that.

If you know someone who likes chocolate, make that person our Hot Chocolate TiraMOSu. It’s like tiramisu, only using hot chocolate in place of coffee. Our friend Charlie gets the credit for naming this. We were just going to call it Hot Chocolate Tiramisu. We like his name better.

Ladyfingers are not only delightful cookies that can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, but they are also the base for the wonderful dessert that is Tiramisu. Unfortunately, finding vegan ladyfingers in a grocery store is next to impossible, so the only option if you want them is to make them yourself

Our White Chocolate Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies are a delicious holiday treat. If you are a split house as we are on dried fruit, do what I do: make the dough without the cranberries, take out half and the add cranberries to one the remaining half. Leave these out with some cold almond milk for Santa and you are sure to get something extra special from the man in red.
