Molasses Cookies & Fudge

Hello lovely readers!

I don’t know about you, but it’s my first vegan Holiday.  I have had quite a few vegetarian Holidays, but quite frankly, keeping away from the meat has not been a great challenge, for I never really liked it.  However, being vegan, there’s more I need to watch out for.  I am pretty much alone in this vegan lifestyle with my husband and my family.  As vegetarians, they would make an effort to find something for us to eat… but vegan? I am loosing them.
Therefore I pretty much have to go with my “lunch” and dessert.  Of course I have to make sure I have extra for people to taste and see that what we “weird people” eat is not that different and can be quite tasty, and it is not ONLY salad and green stuff!
I have come up with a few variety of traditional dishes that I made vegan, so I got that covered.  I had to find dessert, so over the last few weeks I have been trying to make typical Holiday desserts and treats vegan.  I have tried a few recipes and there’s a few more I wish to try, but this week I will share 2 recipes I tried that were a success!  They are both also kids and non-vegan approved – they were tested!

Molasses Cookies

This recipe is from my great aunt.  I have made it vegan by replacing the egg with flax seeds, the white refined sugar with unrefined raw cane sugar, and the vegetable oil with grape seed oil.  It turns out GREAT!  These cookies are soft as a sponge and delicious.  It makes a large batch, so you can either plan to give some away in a nice metal tin or freeze some for future use – it’s up to you!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup grape seed oil
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds diluted in 3 tbsp water
1/2 cup molasses
2 1/2 cup all purpose unbleached flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp grounded ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup water

Mix together the oil, sugar, flaxseeds and molasses
Add dry ingredients alternating with water
Mix well
Drop a heaping spoon on a greased baking sheet
Cook at 350F for 8 min

Enjoy!
Molasses Fudge

fudge
As for the fudge, it takes about 10 minutes to make.  Then, you let chill in the freezer for a few hours before cutting it into pieces.

Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

Put all ingredients together in a pot on a very low heat
Melt and mix well
Put in a glass container that goes in the freezer (layer should be about 1-2 inches and no more)
Let freeze
Cut in pieces

Enjoy!

This fudge should be kept in the fridge at ALL because it melts very easily!

love&peace,
