Very rarely do I get the itch to bake anything that isn’t from scratch (wait, seriously, who AM I?!) It’s true, though. Something about the ingredient list on store bought cookies/cake mixes gives me the willys. I can’t pronounce half the things in there! What happened to the good ole days of flour, sugar and baking soda?
Every so often though, I DO get the urge to experiment with non vegan baking mixes to try to see what the results are when made vegan. Case in point, today. I walked into the grocery store in the mood to bake but lacking an actual recipe in hand, I settled for picking up a mix from the baking aisle. 15 minutes after getting home and a few simple replacements later, I had myself perfect chocolate chip cookies. Oh, let’s not forget the additional cup of walnuts I added into the mix. Walnuts make everything taste better! This was by far my best “Veganize It” experiment as these cookies went off without a hitch.
Now, I’m not trying to preach store bought over baking, but if you’re ever pressed for time and want to impress your friends with awesome vegan desserts, these are definitely a good suggestion!
