In-a-pinch Gingerbread Bites

As I mentioned earlier, you CAN have it all… A quick and easy dinner, full of flavor, without a special trip to the grocery store.

Well this scrumptious dessert recipe goes perfectly with that theme. Don’t get me wrong, I love my butter, but sometimes I’m looking for a recipe that I can make ENTIRELY with pantry ingredients. Most desserts have a good deal of butter, eggs, and sometimes milk. BUT! Not vegan recipes.

I’ve been making this delicious vegan gingerbread cake for a couple of years now, and because it’s so healthy, often will even serve it to my kids for breakfast. Props go out to Thug Kitchen for their fantastic creation! I’ve adapted it slightly to simplify and reduce a bit of the sugar.
