So, after my insanely complex tiramisu recipe, this is exactly the type of baking I want to be doing right now.  Easy, easy, easy.  My mom actually used to make these, and I was glad when I became vegan I didn’t have to alter the recipe at all.

I was quite surprised when I saw I hadn’t posted this recipe, which is my ultimate favorite by Spork Foods. It’s a great way to impress with quinoa (read why I love that stuff HERE) and not to mention, ridiculously easy and quick to make. It seriously takes like 20 minutes tops and is super easy to make after work. When I make this recipe I tend to double it because... Read More
