Assorted Vegan Donuts

vegandonuts_jadepurplebrown

My sweet tooth still hasn't died, so I decided to make some colorful assorted donuts. In no way am I chef, but I love to experiment in every area of my life, and this experiment was a big success. The donuts were moist (my fave word too), dense, and packed with so much flavor. If you try out the recipe be sure to send me a pic or tag me on Instagram!

Vegan Lemon Bars

Vegan Lemon Bars_JadePurpleBrown

I've been on a major baking kick lately. Mostly due to my late night scrolls on Pinterest and my never ending sweet tooth. I tried out a Vegan Lemon Bars by Heart of a Baker and I was blown away. The bars were the perfect balance between sweet and tangy, and the recipe is so simple you most likely have all of the ingredients on hand. I'll be on Martha Stewart shit all summer, so be on the look out for more plant based food experiments.
