Vegan Baking Day + TJs run

by Moratoria

Friday was Vegan Baking Day! And you know what that means…

I actually made multiple things over the weekend. I go a little insane when I have an oven. Okay, maybe I go home for the sole purpose of using the kitchen, fine. But I made cupcakes filled with peanut butter cookie dough! Forgive me, mom?

But my VBD contribution was chocolate chip cookie cake.

Snagged the recipe from Peas and Thank You , made it oil-free (sorry, I can’t help myself), and threw it in the oven at 12 am because that was when I finally got home.

It was so good.

Shared the rest with everyone in my immediate vincinity to do the whole, you know, baketivism thing, but most of it went in my stomach. And I’m okay with that.

I also finally got to make a Trader Joe’s run, thank you very much. I was down to my Costco-sized box of Nature’s Path granola bars and four jars of PB2 with nothing to put it on.

But now, I have this instead.

Healthy. Delicious. And I didn’t have to pay for it. I’m so happy right now. I also got a bag of carrots. It’s my only fresh produce I bought. But that’s because I steal all mine from the dining hall. Right. And our fridge also likes to freeze everything you put it in it. Really, it actually does- it’s so obnoxious. But anyway.

Now I’m savoring what I made shoving leftover cupcakes in my face, telling myself I’ll get back on the wagon after I finish everything. Which, at this rate, might be tonight. Well, you win some, you lose some.

Did you bake and share anything for Vegan Baking Day? What’s your favorite unhealthy splurge? Are you an oven addict?
