Vegan Chocolate Cake | with pb granola

I’ve been going into the baking upside down world, you guys: vegan. I didn’t even really know you could make a cake without eggs. Like, I knew, but I didn’t know the logistics and was afraid to try and make a disappointingly gross cake. But, I make a lot of kitchen mistakes so I thought, what the hell? I found an easy enough recipe that didn’t call for things I never used: flax seeds, almond flour, hazelnut flour…what even is that? This cake is pure chocolate wonder and not for the faint of heart. The best part is that it’s made using ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen. It’s very moist and probably couldn’t handle a stiffer frosting, unless piped. So the ganache makes for a perfect addition. I had made a peanut butter, coconut chip and coconut oil granola a week before and used that for a crunch. If you are serving right away, you can add the granola. But, it will get soggy over time, so I don’t suggest adding it until right before it’s engorged on.   …

Maple Cookie Butter Baked Granola

Oooo-eeee. This is one simple recipe to give you a few days worth of morning cereal or an afternoon snack to munch on while trying to decompress after 14 young germ spreaders have gone home to bother their families instead. (Maybe that’s too specific…) Anyway, this stuff is as tasty as it is easy to make. All you need are a few ingredients that I’m happy to see are getting easier to find in Korea. You can add or subtract anything to this recipe. You are the ruler of your kitchen. I think I’m going to add more nuts and maybe some dark chocolate next time. Because I’m the ruler.
