Desserts
Dream Bars
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup applesauce OR 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed and water
1 cup whole wheat flour              ½ cup sucanat
Mix and press into 13×9 pan. Bake at 350◦F for 10 min. 

Then spread with: Coconut Topping
1 tsp vanilla             1 cup sucanat            ½ tsp salt
6 Tbsp flour             1 cup slivered almonds
½ cup soymilk            1 cup shredded coconut

Mix together, spread over crust and return to oven to bake 25 minutes or more. Cool and cut into bars.
Homemade Carob Chips  and Carob Chip Cookies
¾ cup roasted carob powder                                   ¼ cup sucanat, powdered fine
                                  1 cup coconut oil                                                           1 tsp Pero, or other cereal coffee replacement
Place all ingredients in a double boiler. Warm until melted. Mix together well. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper that has been oiled with coconut oil. Spread mixture parchment paper. Allow to cool in the refrigerator. When hardened, remove from parchment and break into chips. You may also choose to just make carob drops with a spoon on the parchment. Store chips in a container in the fridge or freezer. I freeze these first when I use them in carob chip cookies and they seem to hold together quite well.
  Carob Chip Cookies
½ cup oil 
½ cup applesauce
1 cup sucanat 
1 cup quick oats
½ cup soymilk 
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour 1-1 1/4 cup unbleached flour
½ tsp salt 
½ cup nuts (optional)
¾ cup homemade OR Non-GMO vegan barley malt sweetened carob chips
Preheat oven to 375◦F. Combine applesauce, oil, sucanat and sugar. Add soymilk and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Add other ingredients leaving chips until last. Place on oiled cookie sheet or parchment. Bake 10-12 minutes. Variation: You may use all spelt flour.
Cran-Orange Cookies
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup Soy or coconut Milk Powder
1 cup organic sugar or Florida Crystals
dried cranberries
Approximately 4 cups flour to a cookie dough consistency
 (I use a combination of 1 cup oat flour, 1 cup millet flour, 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup unbleached for a lighter tasting cookie--Too much whole wheat will mask the subtle orange flavor)    Add desired amount of dried cranberries.
Mix ingredients together adding flour and cranberries last.  Roll into balls or use a cookies scoop and bake on a nonstick pan at 350F until lightly browned.  Enjoy!
Non-Dairy Pumpkin Pie
 2 (9-inch) unbaked pastry shells 
2 (15 oz.) cans pumpkin 
1 can coconut milk 
1 1/3 cup organic sugar 
2 Tbsp agar powder 
1 tsp salt 
2 tsp total cinnamon/ginger
 Preheat oven to 425◦F. Combine all ingredients. Pour into shells. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 350◦F. Bake 35-40 min. longer or until knife 1" from the edge comes out clean. This will need to cool awhile to really set well. Best made the day before serving. Serve with Coconut Topping or Tofu whipped Topping (pictured).  
No-roll Pie Crust
 1 ½ cup flour                                                     1 Tbsp + 1 tsp organic sugar 
1 tsp salt                                                                          ½ cup oil 
2 Tbsp soy or nutmilk 
Combine above ingredients and press into a 8” deep dish pie pan. Add your favorite pie filling and bake.
Rainbow Sherbet
Truth is, more often I make these flavors separately than together.
Lemon or Lime Sherbet
1 cup lemon or lime juice 1 ½ cups organic sugar
3 cups of soymilk pinch of salt
Blend and pour into ice cream freezer. I add 3 Tbsp Spinach powder for lime color.

Orange Sherbet -Creamsicle
1 cup orange juice concentrate 
1 cup organic sugar
1 medium carrot, grated 
3 cups soymilk
Pinch of salt
Blend until smooth. Pour into ice cream freezer and freeze.
Raspberry Delight Cream (Sherbet)
1½ cups soy or nut milk
1 cup organic sugar                          3 ¾ cup frozen raspberries
Blend. This will probably require a VitaMix or Blend-tec blender as it is very thick when blended.
Cereal Bars

7 cups cereal (your choice)
 ¾ cup honey
½ cup vegan milk powder OR oat/rice baby food powder
1 scant cup organic sugar
 ¼ cup molasses
1 ½ cup nut butter 
1 tsp vanilla or almond flavor, optional

Spray 9x13 pan. In 2 qt. saucepan stir together vanilla, honey, molasses and sugar. Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Add nut butter. Mix together other ingredients and press into pan. Let stand until set, cut into bars.
