What do you get with four ingredients, 15 minutes of hands-on time, and zero baking? This pudding-filled Vegan Chocolate Pie.
Almond Milk Chocolate Pudding
Deck this thick, chocolaty, and not overly sweet pudding with chocolate chips, graham crackers, chocolate sandwich cookies, or bananas. "One to two tablespoons of instant coffee granules can be added to dry mix to convert to a chocolate mocha pudding," recipe submitter Phaewryn says.
Orange-Cranberry Bundt® Cake
"A mixture of applesauce and coconut oil creates a light, moist crumb that mimics the buttery texture you'd expect in any good Bundt Cake," recipe creator isachandra says. "No one will realize this one's vegan."
Paleo Jelly Donut Cupcakes
On top of wedding jelly donuts and cupcakes into one dessert, this recipe contains no dairy, gluten, or soy. And though it calls for just one (optional) tablespoon of almond milk, you might as well use it.
Coconut Flour Brownies
These Coconut Flour Brownies with cashew-based frosting may be gluten-free and vegan, but they taste indulgent all the same.
Vegan Pumpkin Cookies
Pumpkin season or not, our Vegan Pumpkin Cookies will satisfy your cravings for a comforting cinnamon-spiced treat.

Fudgy Nutella® Mug Cake
This easy mug cake tastes like Nutella without using a stomach ache's worth of the chocolate-hazelnut spread. "I'm going to give this 5 stars because it is the BEST microwave cake I have ever tried," home cook House of Aqua says, adding that it could use an extra tablespoon or two of milk to make it more moist.
Gluten-Free Raspberry Lemon Cake
Our Gluten-Free Raspberry Lemon Cake contains Greek yogurt, egg whites, and honey, so it's neither dairy free nor vegan. If you're not following a certain diet, however, this tart, sweet recipe deserves a spot on your must-make list.
No-Workout-Needed Chocolate Cake
This cake's rich batter consists of dark chocolate cake mix, brewed coffee, and tofu. Almond milk, dark chocolate chips, and peanut butter meld into a delicious topping in the microwave. "Incredibly moist, incredibly easy, incredibly tasty," Allrecipes Allstar lutzflcat says.
Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Scones
Yes, scones count as dessert when chocolate chips enter the mix! Recipe submitter KLang436 calls them "not quite as dry as most scones," adding that you can up the almond milk to make them moister.
