I’ve ran this vegan dessert blog for almost 5 years now and although all of my desserts are egg and dairy-free, I recently realised I don’t have many allergy-friendly posts. The large majority of my recipes are nut-free and some are gluten-free too, so I wanted to create posts like this one to help those with allergies find them a bit easier.

The best nut-free vegan desserts

I’ve split the recipes into categories, to help you find the recipes you’re most interested in a little bit quicker. The categories are: cheesecakes, cakes, chocolate desserts, biscuits and cookies, muffins, and cupcakes. I hope you enjoy!


First, we’ll start with the cheesecake recipes. Unlike many other vegan cheesecakes, these recipes do not contain nuts in the base or the filling. They’re completely free from cashews, almonds and other nuts!

Vanilla Cheesecake

Smooth, creamy vanilla cheesecake with a Digestive biscuit base. An easy, dairy-free twist on a classic dessert.
