The Best Vegan Desserts.

No matter how much more popular veganism is becoming these days, some people can’t shake the perception that all egg- and dairy-free desserts must taste like flavorless slabs of sandpaper.

Clearly, these people have never tried any of these 100 percent vegan recipes.

Along with more and more vegan cafes, restaurants, food blogs, and meat, and dairy alternatives, these recipes prove being vegan is not a difficult (or boring) lifestyle.

Here are five of the best vegan desserts for everyone to enjoy.

One-bowl Chocolate Hazelnut Cake Recipe:

For when you need a birthday cake (or just feel like cake, no judgment here), this one-bowl chocolate hazelnut cake is the answer.

Rich, moist, mega chocolatey, and hazelnutty, this is basically like Nutella in cake form, which we have no problems with whatsoever.

While there isn’t any Nutella actually in the cake, it has all of the essential components: Creaminess, chocolaty-ness, and loads of roasted hazelnuts!

This cake gets extra height from a solid layer of roasted hazelnuts + more on top! They also provide a healthy crunch to the cake.
