Vegan Lowfat Chocolate CakeThis is an amazing cake. I just made it today after many months of not making it. It is incredibly moist, and unbelievable that it is low fat.

I also always double the recipe, so the ingredients I list (save for sugar) are twice what she recommends.

Vegan Banana Nut MuffinsI'll be frank. I only made these muffins vegan because we haven't been able to find eggs for weeks where we live.

These turned out so great. I'm so happy I had to experiment with this!
