If you're dairy-free, indulging in baked goods may seem out of the question. That's far from the truth, however, since there are a whole slew of ingredients that can be used in place of butter and milk that mimic what they do in our favorite cookies and cakes.
Here are seven essential recipes to know if you follow a dairy-free diet.
This wholesome cookies are both sweetened and bound together by good ol' bananas. Opt for vegan chocolate chips (the chips at Trader Joe's are vegan!) to be sure they're free of any milk solids.
Since these muffins are made with olive oil, applesauce, and grated carrots, they're ridiculously moist. They're one of the few muffins that will stay fresh-tasting for days.
The secret to these light-as-air meringue cookies is aquafaba, the protein-rich liquid that's found in your can of chickpeas. (Yes, really!)
Leave off the chocolate chips or use vegan ones to keep this retro cake dairy-free. Even though it doesn't use any dairy, it bakes up moist and tender, thanks to a combination of baking soda and vinegar.
Not only are these the word's easiest cookies, but they're also dairy-free, nut-free, and Paleo. So you can make them for your next party and feel confident everyone will be able to eat them.
Coconut butter not only makes the crust here dairy-free, but it also adds an extra dose of rich coconut flavor to the chocolatey pie.
Aquafaba strikes again to help make a marshmallow-like fluff. If you're short on time, though, the peanut butter cookies are good enough to serve on their own.
