Vegan Recipes

On Friday I promised I’d post some of our favorite vegan recipes that don’t require any exotic ingredients and are easy to make, as well as some of our favorite online resources for information.

Since I like to eat dessert first (who doesn’t?), I thought the first recipe I post would be for some yummy bars! 

Remember, even adding one vegan meal a week makes a huge difference in so many ways! 

Grandma’s Spice Bars

1 c sugar

1 c cold water

1 c raisins

½ c Crisco

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp cloves

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

Boil above ingredients for 3 minutes. Cool a little.


2 c flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

Spread in 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes

1 c. powdered sugar

3-4 Tbs soy milk

2 drops vanilla

Stir in bowl until consistency to drizzle off spoon. Drizzle on bars when they are cool.

P.S. Don’t forget to send your name and address to: to register to win a free copy of Nancy Twigg’s book, From Clutter to Clarity: Simplifying Life from the Inside Out. The drawing will be next Wednesday.
