Gluten-Free Vegan Lemon Sugar Cookies

With a hint of citrus and packed with a soft crunch, these Lemon Sugar Bunny Cookies are a must-make for your household this coming Easter.

 If you have been following Fork & Beans for a while, you will note my love for holidays and foods that are shaped in celebration for it. Shoot, I have a section in my Recipes that is labeled “Holidays“ so it’s needless to say that I love getting creative with my food when there is a holiday approaching. ...
Vegan White Chocolate Mousse

Vegan White Chocolate Mousse

I have worked day and night for you sweet friends, in hopes to bring you a mighty good tasting vegan white chocolate mousse. This was no easy feat. May I share with you the agony this has caused me? Too bad, I’m going to anyway. First I thought maybe cashews would be a good base since...
Cinnamon ABC Crackers (gluten-free vegan)

Cinnamon ABC Crackers (gluten-free vegan)

It’s official. I am entering that place in life where I can no longer do certain things with my body without negative repercussions. So here’s the deal: My job requires a lot of sitting at a computer. That, mixed with my dad’s terrible spinal genes (that’s a real thing, right? ha) causes for deep pain in my lower...

Cinnamon Streusel Mini Coffee Cakes

Remember when you were in college and those times when you would crave something sweet to eat? You would scrap up a chunk of change from anywhere you could find it, put your sandals on, and drag yourself out of your room down the hall to the vending machine to grab yourself a 3 pack of those Hostess Cinnamon...
Raw Vegan Banana Splits

Raw Vegan Banana Splits

This weekend here in Los Angeles we were experiencing a record-breaking heat wave. It was 90 degrees. Look, I’m not saying that to rub it in. That heat is miserable to me. I’m like a cranky old woman in desperate need of a nap when it’s that hot. (Not to mention I wasn’t all that fond of...

Thin Mint Oreos

So I finally put on my St. Paddy’s Day spirit on; an ode to the day of all-things green. Riddle me this: What do you get when you marry homemade Mint Oreos and Thin Mints? Besides one of my favorite cookies that I have created to this day, you get Thin Mint Oreos. I’m sure...

Homemade Moon Pies

I made you a special treat and wrapped them up in plastic. Can you guess what they are? Can you? Oh who am I kidding. You already know the answer since I gave it away with the title of this post. Note to self: Make these questions less obvious and more difficult. The answer is...
Gluten-free Vegan Nutter Butter Bites

Gluten-free Vegan Nutter Butter Bites

Oatmeal Cream Pies, Animal Crackers…and now gluten-free vegan Nutter Butter Bites?! I’ve gone mad, I tell you, MAD. I’m a woman obsessed with all-things childhood favorite treats.

Okay, have a seat my friend. Then again, you probably are already sitting down as you read this so humor me here and re-enact the motion of sitting down. So I’ve been super inspired this week.

Gluten-free Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies

Today I’m visiting an incredible blogger friend Sarah of Sarah Bakes Gluten-Free and I really wanted to make her an ultra-special treat. What better way to spread baking cheer than with homemade gluten-free vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies? I knew that you would agree. I’m surprised it has taken me this long to recreate Oatmeal Cream Pies. Probably...
