Vegan Desserts That Won't Make You Feel Deprived
No milk? No butter? No eggs? No problem. These eight recipes prove there is a such thing as a tasty vegan dessert. Even non-vegans will be begging for a bite.
Raw Salted Caramel Crème Brulee
Crème brulee tends to be heavy on eggs and cream, which puts it at the top of a vegan's "do not order" list. But this take on the dish is vegan approved and a helluva lot easier to make than the real thing. And did we mention it's also free of refined sugar? Just crave-worthy creaminess right here.

7-Ingredient Vegan Cheesecakes
Simple is the name of this recipe's game—from the short ingredient list to the no-bake method and the easy-to-serve individual cups. The only thing that's complex? Getting your friends to believe you when you say the creamy, dairy-free cheesecakes are in fact vegan desserts.

Cookie + Kate
Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge
FYI, this fudge is heavy on peanut butter (you can thank us later). The recipe also swaps coconut oil for the butter that's usually found in fudge, which means serving it at room temp could make a melty mess. Consider that permission to pop one into your mouth straight from the freezer.

10-Minute Healthy Pomegranate Chocolate Almond Pie
When friends drop by unexpectedly, slip away for 10 minutes (seriously, that's it!) to whip up this vegan chocolate-almond pie. They'll have no idea what's coming.

This Rawsome Vegan Life
Raw Vegan Chocolate Cake
One look at—and one bite of—this stunner, and there's no way you'd guess it was vegan. The coolest part is it's packed with ingredients you recognize (no erythritol or xanthan gum here). The insane smoothness, courtesy of blended cashews, will have you and anyone else around stealing seconds.

Desserts with Benefits
Healthy Matcha Green Tea Sugar Cookies
Matcha, a superfood of the moment, finds its way into these cookies, and that's just one of the reasons these aren't your ordinary sugar cookies. Here's another: There's no sugar! Or gluten or dairy for that matter. Here, they're shown sandwiched around a cream-cheese filling, so to keep it strictly vegan, enjoy the soft, chewy green cookies solo.

Oh My Veggies
Vegan Cannoli Bites
Italian recipes are generally no-nos for vegan eaters (hello cheese and meatballs), which is all the more reason to say yes to these vegan cannolis. They're baked into mini-muffin form rather than the usual tube-like shape, but even an Italian grandmother will welcome this twist on tradition.

The Glowing Fridge
Coconut Berry Bliss Bars
Light, pink, and oh-so-springy, these strawberry-and-coconut dessert squares look like they were made to be served at a Mother's Day brunch or baby shower. The good news is you don't need to wait for an event or holiday to whip up a batch for yourself.
