There are some blogs that you just can’t help getting excited about because the recipes they post are so innovative and unique. There are blogs you read, and blogs you devour and Fork and Beans has always been on my devour list.

Last summer, Cara and I were both working on cookbooks, so Cara tested some of my recipes and I tested some of hers. And now Cara’s cookbook is out — woo hoo! Decadent Gluten-Free Vegan Baking: Delicious, Gluten-, Egg- and Dairy-Free Treats and Sweets is much like Fork and Beans in that it’s full of remakes of classic recipes and junk food favorites. There’s an entire chapter devoted to vegan and gluten-free versions of Girl Scout cookies. An entire chapter! You’ll also find recipes for homemade Pop-Tarts, Fig Newtons, Cheez-Its, and more cakes, cupcakes, and pies than you can shake a stick at. (I have no idea what that means. Why would you shake a stick at cupcakes? They’re delicious.)

And speaking of cupcakes! When asked to choose a recipe to share from Cara’s cookbook, I decided on the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes. The deciding factor was obviously the Nutter Butter Frosting, which I would happily pipe straight into my mouth because I’m classy like that.

If you’d like to see what else this cookbook has in store, you can purchaseΒ itΒ on amazon.com

    Who knew gluten-free baking could look so good! I can’t turn down anything with PB+chocolate no matter how hard I try. Must give these a go!

    I can’t wait to make these! Can I substitute with all purpose flour?

      We haven’t tested the recipe with all-purpose flour; I think you’d probably be better off finding a chocolate cupcake recipe that’s already made with it.

    Hi. I have an all-purpose gluten free flour blend. Would that be ok to use instead?
