I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had a soft spot for cranberry sweet treats during the Christmas season. However, when I first went vegan, finding tasty vegan cranberry desserts wasn’t always easy. I distinctly remember ordering what was promised to be a “vegan cranberry traybake” at a cafe in 2017, only to be served a dry, crumbly piece of chocolate with a couple of dried cranberries scattered on top. Talk about disappointment!
Thankfully, the vegan dessert world is a lot more vast these days and people have gotten a lot more creative. Whether you’re looking to whip up a batch of homemade cookies or want to make a vibrant, crowd-pleasing pie, I’ve got you covered with this roundup of cranberry dessert ideas.
