I was just fine with skipping chocolate this Valentine's Day, but then I saw these lavender truffles. I adore the flavor of lavender with chocolate — savory, herbal, aromatic. A bonus? They're vegan.
Oh, and another bonus? These truffles use a whole can of coconut milk. Chocolate, lavender, and coconut milk? Sign me up!
These are just one of several vegan treats from Mandy Harper at Wholesome Bakery in San Francisco. She also offers up morning buns made with orange zest and barley flour, and coconut cardamom rice pudding made with brown rice.
