Vegan Lemon Blueberry Scones

Scones are probably my most favorite baked good. Scones are supposed to be soft & fluffy on the inside, slightly crisp on the edges, only slightly sweet, and loaded with fresh fruit. That’s the way I like them. I have been trying to save this recipe for using exclusively at the bakery I intend to…

Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately my most favorite thing to do with cookie dough is roll it into balls, freeze them, and only bake a few at a time when I am craving something sweet.  It helps keep me from overindulging. Plus its great to have on hand when I have guest over, and want to make them a…
