This recipe is late. V late. But I worked hard to perfect this ONE BOWL version of Vegan Gingerbread Cookies, and wanted to share it so that at the very least, it will be here next year and we can plan ahead! I am squeezing out every last bit of holiday cheer during these last few days of 2016, and sharing this recipe is one way I can do that! I am SOOO happy to report that no one could guess these were vegan, including my friends sweet mom. I delivered some cookies, and right before I left she complimented me on them. I told her they were vegan! She was just so shocked, because she has never had vegan desserts because when she wants dessert, she wants dessert!!!
I have been lactose intolerant since before it was a 'thing'. The older I get, the more sensitive I am to even the smallest amounts of dairy. That being said, I don't even want to eat ice cream anymore because it makes me feel so terrible. One of my goals for the summer was to perfect a recipe for vegan ice cream. After many trials and tribulations, I realized there were four major problems. SPOILER ALERT. I SOLVED THEM ALL and Roasted Banana Salted Date Caramel Swirl was born! I think this is one of the best recipes I've ever developed!
