When I began my vegan journey, there were (literally) 2 or 3 vegan cookbooks at the time. Now, there are hundreds and hundreds (have we broken a thousand yet?) , and choosing just a handful can feel overwhelming. Yet, once in a while a new book comes out that really breaks some new ground. I felt Ricki Heller’s book did so, and I feel the same way about Richa Hingle’s Indian Vegan Kitchen. If you aren’t familiar with Richa, she is an award winning recipe developer, blogger, and photographer behind Coconut Lemon Meltaways - The "No Guilt" Version That Will Knock Your Socks Off! - Page 2 of 2 -

So you don’t have to actually cook these luscious Coconut Lemon Meltaways…instead you can put them in a food dehydrator for about an hour and fifteen minutes or in the lowest setting in your oven.

Easy Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles

Instead of relying on a box of store-bought confections this year, I highly recommend making these dark chocolate truffles. Calling for just a handful of ingredients, they are quick and easy to prepare, and will impress the socks off your loved ones! While most recipes rely on heavy cream or butter, these truffles get their creaminess from a ripe avocado. If you don’t care for the flavor of avocado, don’t worry– all you’ll taste is the chocolate!

Healthy Fudge Recipe to Blow Away All Other Fudge Recipes. Raw Coconut Macaroons (Only 5 Ingredients!) If you know me, you know I love my sweets.

Raw Coconut Macaroons (Only 5 Ingredients!)

I don’t think I could ever give up having something a little sweet every day. The way I used to satisfy my sweet cravings before I stopped eating conventional processed junk food vs. now, is like night and day. Back then, I would eat anything sweet, including those treats full of artificial ingredients and a ton of refined sugar with lots of high fructose corn syrup. Now, I go for the most real organic ingredients available that have a nice dose of nutrition but can be sweetened to create a dessert.
