Happy Healthy Vegan Recipes: IBS-Friendly

Vegan kitchen

With the kids finally back in school (British Columbia experienced a lengthy teacher’s strike throughout the late spring and entire summer this year), I’ve found myself scoring way more time to cook and bake and experiment in the kitchen. And with the vegetarian cookbook I have coming out next summer, I find myself wanting to perfect the recipes that will be featured.

Last weekend, I managed to make chocolate-pumpkin muffins, my version of grown-up oatmeal, and spicy applesauce. (I actually made more, but these are the ones I remembered to take pictures of.) I can’t divulge the exact recipes, but perhaps these will inspire you to mess around in the kitchen and create something similar!

Each recipe below is vegan, and kind to your digestive tract (IBS-friendly).

Vegan Chocolate-Pumpkin Muffins

Vegan Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

These dense, completely vegan muffins are made with applesauce in place of oil, and pumpkin puree in place of egg. My kids LOVED them (always the ultimate test of taste), and they were very simple to make.

Grown-Up Oats with Coconut

Vegan Oatmeal

You can make this hearty breakfast in advance by layering ingredients, and then simply adding boiling water when you’re ready to eat. Line them up on the counter before bed, and then it’s a quick, easy, and healthy breakfast for the next morning.

Homemade Spicy Applesauce

Vegan applesauce

I love making applesauce, because it makes the house smell incredible, and is truly SO much better than the store-bought variety. The hint of spice comes from freshly grated ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and then a dash of chai spice.

So there you have it! A weekend of yummy smells, tastes, and healthy meal planning. Happy Meatless Monday, and have a fabulous week!
