an unreasonable amount of baking

March 2, 2010 at 3:44 am (desserts, recipe, vegan)


in an even more unreasonable amount of time. for the past few days, that’s all I’ve been doing. and here are the fruits of my labors:

heavenly biscuits from Flavor Vegan. on their own I thought they were a tad bland, but a nice buttery spread really complimented them.


chocolate chocolate chip walnut cookies from Veganomicon. they might look ugly, but they sure did taste amazing!


peanut butter, chocolate chip, and banana coconut cookies I made on a whim one night to bring in to work the next day. the unanimous favorite amongst pretty much everyone were the banana coconut, and I’m going to try and experiment with turning them into muffins sometime soon.


satanic sugar cookies from The Gluttonous Vegan for my beloved friend Danny.


peanut butter chocolate brownies I made today to use up the rest of the peanut butter I bought (since I’m not a big fan of it in general). I modified this recipe, here’s what mine consisted of:
ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 mashed bananas
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 oz melted semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup soymilk

directions:

  • preheat oven to 375 degrees. lightly crease a 9×13 baking pan.
  • in a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • in a large bowl, mix bananas and sugar until smooth. add peanut butter and melted chocolate and cream together.
  • mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients and milk gradually.
  • bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into mixture comes out clean.
  • let cool and decorate with either homemade or store bought frosting (I used Funfetti).

not bad for brownies! and they’re very rich tasting, so you really wouldn’t be able to tell that they’re fairly low-calorie. thank goodness for bananas. :>
