Pumpkin is a necessity during the fall and I've been craving it like crazy lately. I've also been craving baked goods so naturally pumpkin bread is what sounds amazing to me right now. After scouring blogs for recipes I found this gorgeous recipe for Soft Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Brown Sugar Streusel Crust on Averie Cooks. I plan on making this soon and will be making a few modifications and I'm excited to see how it comes out!
I don't know when this happened but "Puppy Chow" snack mix seems to be all the rage nowadays. Count me in if that puppy chow happens to be flavored with pumpkin spice and contains cookie butter. The hardest ingredient to find would be vegan white chocolate chips but a trip to the Kosher market should do the trick. This would be a great Halloween or Thanksgiving snack! This is the Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow from Peanut Butter Fingers.
Warm beverages are a must in the fall. When I learned the sad news that the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte is NOT vegan a few years ago it left a little empty spot in my heart that was waiting to be filled. While the Salted Caramel Mocha from Starbucks (after extensive research it appears that it is Vegan with soy milk and no whipped cream - hopefully I have not been misled) does a decent job, it's not exactly the healthiest option (although I will be enjoying a free one on my birthday, yay!). A treat that I love but don't enjoy often because I haven't found a good vegan recipe is hot chocolate. I think this may be the game changer though! I found the recipe for Superfood Haute Chocolate by Sarah of My New Roots and I'm SO EXCITED to try it out! If you guys haven't been to Sarah's site definitely check it out, she is amazing and her recipes and website are beautiful.
These adorable little packets of deliciousness are so adorable! These are the Vegan Lasagna Bites from Quiche A Week. They have vegan ricotta, spinach and tomato sauce tucked away in an eggless wonton wrapper. To me this sounds like a perfect fall meal with a salad or a really great appetizer on any holiday table. I've VERY excited to try these, I'm going to head to my local Asian market to hunt for some egg-free wonton wrappers!
I'm almost positive I've shared this gorgeous Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup with you before but now that it is actually soup season I'm really excited to try it. Thickened with chickpeas and served with toasty bread this is guaranteed to be a winner!
So that's what I'm looking forward to making in my kitchen this fall! What are you guys looking forward to this fall? If you have any fall recipes that you think I would like please share in the comments!
I hope you are all well and I hope to post again next week! I'm going to be spending the weekend in Rochester visiting a friend next week but I'll try to pop in before I go. Have a great week!
