  1. 1-Bowl Vegan Pumpkin Roll


Minimalist baker created a vegan version of the pumpkin roll and I think I’ve died and gone to pumpkin-and-cream-cheese heaven. Oh and the best part… you only need to wash one bowl!


  1. Sweet Potato Ice Cream


Florida is hot, y’all. Sometimes warm apple pie just doesn’t sound good on a 95-degree day. But sweet potato ice cream? Yes please!


  1. Vegan Apple Cider Doughnuts


Are doughnuts a dessert, or a breakfast food? We’re not sure, but even though you can often find apple cider doughnuts at your local pumpkin patch, they don’t usually offer a vegan alternative. Here is a recipe for vegan apple cider doughnuts.


And for the record, we think these should be enjoyed for breakfast AND dessert.
