Five Minute Vegan Caramel

While working on a blueberry granola recipe this past Saturday, I noticed that the mixture of ingredients I planned to coat the granola in was wafting this amazingly sweet, rich, and buttery smell as it warmed on the stove. As soon as I caught its scent, I abandoned the oats and buckwheat I had been measuring out and rushed over to check on it. I tasted it, did a happy dance in our kitchen, and then ran down the hall to wake Dan up in hopes that he might confirm the same thoughts I had about this delightful mixture: it tasted exactly like caramel! He confirmed my caramel hopes and then requested another few tastes. Nothing like some sweet spoonfuls of caramel to start your Saturday morning off right. I still ended up using the mixture to coat the granola in, and it worked perfectly for its originally-intended purpose. Kelly Brozyna's Chocolate Pie + Raw Graham Cracker Crust.

Kelly Brozyna's Chocolate Pie + Raw Graham Cracker Crust

I don’t care if the Paleo Police kick down my door—I love dark chocolate.

Homemade Coconut Milk (Using A Whole Fresh Coconut) I love coconut milk, but it either comes in tetra paks or in cans lined with plastic that most likely contains BPA.

Homemade Coconut Milk (Using A Whole Fresh Coconut)

This recipe uses a whole coconut, but I’ll do another post that uses dried coconut instead at some point. To make coconut milk, you’ll need to buy a coconut. To crack open the coconut, locate the dark indentations around the top. Next, place the coconut over a bowl and hit the seams with a rolling pin. After the juice has drained out, continue to hit the coconut until it breaks open. Next, wrap the coconut in a towel. Take the pieces inside. There will be another layer of skin that can be peeled off with a vegetable peeler. Repeat for the rest of the pieces. Chop the larger pieces into smaller one-inch chunks.

Put these pieces into a blender along with the reserved coconut juice and 2 cups of water. Blend for two to three minutes. Like this: Cinnamon and Coconut Pancakes. I know Paleo pancakes are totally candy cigarettes but once in a while, I feel like making a stack.

I've had my share of vegan and regular brownies and been baffled by how lacking vegan versions are. Growing up on my Grandmother's brownies, I learned that a good brownie should be dense, fudgy and soft; not light, cakey and dry. Why is it so hard to emulate a traditional brownie recipe that simply consists of a few simple ingredients? Hint: it's due to the egg, which emulsifies, binds, slightly leavens then bakes up as part of the actual base of the brownie itself. To emulate this takes an expedition deep into the innards of brownie science, oh and for me, about seven years of failing until figuring this out. Opera Cake. Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.
