Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Always looking for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe to call my own, have not found it yet. I will try this one. I also use Earth Balance bars (they happen to be salted) in my baking so I would greatly reduce the salt added in this recipe. Will probably sub with whole wheat pastry flour (whole grain soft white wheat) as well as a bit of almond meal/flour. Won't use white sugar just because -Usually mix it up - combine agave, molasses as well as some raw sugar and will definitely reduce the amount of sugar but just a bit, go to far and you won't be able to feed them to choc-chip cookie die hard lovers. Oh, the fun of experimenting with food, my passion. :~)

Trader Joes fruit recall....see that place is going to kill all you loyalists!

Apparently, Whole Foods also had a fruit recall, sorry, not giving up Whole Foods. In the world we live in, I suspect these type of recalls can happen to the best of them.

Basic (Vegan) Chocolate Cupcake

I'm not vegan but I do like to eat healthier versions of everyday favorites. This is the best chocolate cupcake recipe - it is easy, quick, moist and delicious. I find it a challenge and enjoy revising recipes to make them healthier without sacrificing texture and flavor. I was able to substitute half of the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour, replace the white sugar with a combination of agave, brown rice syrup and/or raw granulated sugar. I add a bit of expresso powder to the dry mix to enhance the chocolate flavor. For the frosting, I prefer a chocolate ganache made with almond milk instead of traditional frosting. Shaved chocolate on top of each cupcake makes them look very gourmet. I have made these cupcakes frequently, and they really do come out great every time.
