Sometimes nothing is better than a yummy piece of cheesecake or a slice of pie at the end of a busy day. Most desserts however, have eggs or milk in them so becoming a vegan definitely has some health and environmental benefits. We’ve put together a list of five of the most delicious and incredibly simple vegan desserts you can make. All of these recipes have less than six ingredients each, and they’re cheap and quick to make for your friends and family – these are a great approach to try out a vegan lifestyle in the yummiest way possible!
Vegan Dark Chocolate Bars
We are big fans of a great piece of dark chocolate, especially if it’s accompanied by a glass of red wine on a Friday night. These delicious bars are packed full of rich cocoa powder and coconut oil, and you can also make them extra flavourful by adding sprinkles of sea salt or vanilla extract to your liking. These are a perfect dessert to bring to any gathering or party, and they won’t make you feel guilty at all for eating chocolate!
Easy Vegan Macaroons
These fluffy and flavorful cookies are one you can’t go wrong with! Toasted coconut and creamy meringue make up the base for these cookies, then topped with a warm drizzle of chocolate; tasty and simple. These cookies are crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, and packed full of coconut and no egg or milk products.
These are wonderful to pack along for a summer road trip or outdoor BBQ!

Vegan Chocolate Truffles
The most impressive thing about these vegan truffles? They’re only three easy ingredients, and you probably have all of them in your kitchen already! Make up entirely of only soft dates, cocoa powder, and orange juice, these decadently-rich truffles are the easiest and possibly yummiest, recipe on our list. And again, all pure vegan ingredients and no processed sugars or carbs!
Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
Oatmeal cookies may not be everyone’s favourite, but these might just change their minds! With only two ingredients, the fun part is adding toppings to these cookies to make them however you like! With the cookie base being toasted oats and mashed banana, you can add anything for your topping!
You can make them uniquely yours with dried cranberries, M&Ms, a drizzle of white chocolate or even pistachios or peanuts!
The combinations are endless!
Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s Cups are one of my favourite sweets to buy in the grocery store, but upon finding an easy at-home recipe I can make myself with less processed sugar, I have totally changed! These peanut butter cups are an equal amount of heavenly chocolate and rich peanut butter mixed with coconut oil. So perfect for when you want something just a little sweet! Three ingredients is all this takes, saving you lots of time and effort in making a dessert.
