Baking

Vegan Cocoa Brownies

When Jack was three months old our doctor suggested I take dairy out of my diet while I’m nursing Jack.  I did and have been completely dairy free (minus a few slip ups) ever since.  In the past I’ve been on a low dairy diet where I avoided dairy for the most part but did not vet the ingredients of every single thing I ate.  Then when I was pregnant I started eating cheese again.  Now I completely off all dairy.  And let me tell you it’s tough.  There’s milk in everything!

One thing that helps me get through is to focus on what I can eat not what I can’t eat.  Oreos are dairy free so at first I ate a TON of Oreos.  😀  Then I found some time to bake again so I checked out the book Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar from the library.  This book is great!  There are so many yummy looking and sounding recipes.  I am going to watch for a used copy at the bookstore or ask for it for Christmas.

The first recipe I tried was for Delux Cocoa Brownies on page 132.  Check out their amazing fudgyness:

They were delicious.  And they had tofu in them – surprise!  You can’t tell when you eat them though.  

If you are interested in vegan or dairy-free desserts I would definitely recommend Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  I am looking forward to trying out a few more recipes before I have to take it back.
