20% of adult Americans always or sometimes eat vegan meals when dining out; 2% are strict vegans.
As you can see, veganism is catching on. As a result, there are increasingly more products on the market that are tasty and don't have animal byproducts. Many of us are fans of dessert but find hard to find products that don't have dairy in it. Thankfully, there are some choices out there.
Are you looking for a vegan dessert mix or two to add to your repertoire? Food Healing's proprietor and head chef, Michael Bouvier, formulated these recipes below because he wanted to feed himself, his family, and his customers' healthy desserts that tasted great. In making the transition to a healthy lifestyle, Michael realized that vegans and that those wanting to eat clean were limited on or missing the delicious and decadent desserts. Clean eating and vegan diets shouldn't be limiting; instead, food should be adapted to fit the world we live in based on the things we are fortunate enough to know about what goes into what we eat. Here are 5 of the best vegan desserts you can try from Food Healing!
Cookies are something we remember fondly from our youth. Sipping on a cold glass of milk, nibbling on a warm cookie, and reading a good book or setting some out for Santa.
But now that we're older and trying to eat vegan, these good times may not come as easily anymore. Practically all cookie recipes have butter, eggs, and flour in them, which isn't vegan at all.
Fortunately for you, there's vegan chocolate chip cookie dough available. Our product doesn't have any dairy, soy, gluten, or grain, so vegans with food allergies can still eat this delicious cookie!
All you need to do is preheat the oven, scoop cookie dough onto a baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes. The result? Golden brown vegan chocolate chip cookies that are better than what you'll remember from childhood.
Brownies are yet another type of dessert that almost everybody loves. It's chocolate and rich; what's not to like about it?
Unfortunately, most brownie recipes involve non-vegan ingredients, such as eggs and butter. So when it comes to dessert time, you usually have to sit it out while you watch everyone else munch down on those amazingly moist brownies.
But with our products, that'll be no longer the case! We have a vegan brownie mix that is so good, you won't even know the difference!
This product is completely free of dairy, soy, peanut, egg, and flour. So not only is it vegan-friendly, but it's also free of common allergens. If you're someone with allergies and are also vegan, then your days of missing out on dessert are gone!
With this vegan brownie mix, all you have to do is add water to it and bake for the specified amount of time. You'll get the most delicious and thick brownies at the end!
3. Chocolate Bars

You may be skeptical about your choices when it comes to chocolate bars. But considering vegan foods have made leaps and bounds, you definitely won't be disappointed.

If you have kids, you can even get them involved in the chocolate-making process! Children love to bake and you'll be making some happy memories that will last a lifetime.
5. Trail Mix
Trail mix is always a good choice for a snack or dessert since it has definitely packs a healthy punch. Since it's filled with nuts such as cashews and walnuts, these tiny foods cram plenty of energy and nutrients into them. As a result, you'll feel energized and ready to tackle the day with a handful of trail mix.
The best thing about this type of vegan dessert is you can always mix it up a little. For example, you can put coconut, cacao nibs, chocolate chips, hemp hearts, and Goji berries into your mix. Basically, any type of dehydrated fruit can go into this dessert, so you'll never get tired of it!
You can certainly eat trail mix by itself; just put it in a bag, and whenever you're hungry, you can snack while on the go.
But you can also make other desserts out of trail mix. For example, you can bake them into chocolate bark or cookies. Don't be afraid to get creative in the kitchen, as you never know—you may accidentally invent a new type of vegan dessert that's out of this world!
