What Would Happen If You Made Fries Out of Avocados?

I love avocados. And for good reason! They are healthy, delicious and easy to add to foods or to simply eat on their own. Avocados would definitely be my “survival island” food – if I had to pick only one food to eat if I was going to be stuck on an island, avocados would be it. So, naturally, when I came across this recipe for avocado fries I knew I had to make it!

They are beyond easy and incredibly tasty. This would also be a great recipe for kids because you have to dip the avocado slices into the mixtures and you’re hands get messy. You could eat them like a snack, put them on salads, put them in sandwiches… the possibilities are endless!

Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!

Recipe for Vegan Pumpkin Oreo Cupcakes

That’s right. Pumpkin AND Oreos! I found this recipe on Pinterest and immediately knew I had to veganize it. The original recipe is for donuts but I decided to make them as cupcakes. As you can only imagine, the results are delicious!

Ingredients:

For the donuts: 

1/4 c. vegan butter, softened (I used Earth Balance)
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. applesauce
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/3 c. soy vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
1/4 c. chocolate cookie crumbs

For the topping: 

Vegan frosting*
1/2 c. chocolate cookie crumbs

*The originally recipe calls for CandiQuick, which isn’t vegan so I made my own frosting using this recipe.
