You’ve fought a courageous battle against the baked goods aisle. (Must. keep. walking.)
But there’s no shame in surrendering to Peace a’ Cake’s vegan treats.
Fall in line for owner Veronica Menin’s white chocolate almond cranberry muffins, chocolate walnut cookies, and mango white chocolate cake. (Bonus: The nutrient-rich desserts pack an unexpectedly healthful punch.)
Building off a friend’s recipe, Menin favors applesauce, coconut palm nectar, vegan chocolate chips, raw nuts, and other ingredients in place of oil, butter, milk, soy, and eggs.
No need to send in a spy: It’s a recipe she’s willing to share — along with healthy, blender-ready versions of banana pudding and chocolate mousse — at Peace a’ Cake’s free monthly Whole Foods cooking classes. One-on-one, group, vegan, and gluten-free baking lessons are also available.
On August 6, track her new gluten-free oatmeal raisin and double chocolate delights to the grocer.
And enjoy the spoils of war.
