Looking for a Vegan, Gluten-Free Treat

(Image credit: Faith Durand)

Q: Each week at my research group’s lab meetings someone is in charge of bringing food for everyone. It is my turn in a couple weeks, and I want to prepare something truly delicious!

There are a couple issues though. We have one vegan, one gluten-free, and limited cold storage or heat up space (limited to a microwave). Other people have already done hummus and chips and salsa (all the classic stuff), but I want to be original.

Any recipes you guys can think of?

Editor: Allison, here are a few ideas for treats:

No-Bake Sunflower-Oat Bars (pictured above)
Vegan/Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Coconut Icing
Coconut Sticky Rice – with mango or banana
4-Ingredient Banana Oat Bars
• Fresh fruit
• Assortment of cookies, some gluten-free (like these or these) and some vegan (like these or these).

Readers, what else would you suggest?
