If you like your vegan desserts oil-free then you’ll love this post! It contains 30 delicious recipes for all kinds of sweet treats, including cakes, brownies, cookies and more.
I have been a vegan dessert blogger for quite some time now and one thing I’ve never really delved too much into is oil-free baking. You’ll probably notice that most of my recipes contain vegan butter, which is made up of a blend of oils.
It came to my attention recently how many vegans avoid oil in their diet and I thought it would be nice to create a list of the best oil-free desserts so that they can be found all in one place.
I do have a couple of recipes that are accidentally oil-free on my blog but it’s never something I’ve tested in great detail. With that in mind, I teamed up with some other food bloggers to create this post, who kindly gave permission for me to use their recipes. Do make sure to show their blogs some love if you try any of their desserts.
The best vegan oil-free desserts
I have split this post into a few different categories: Chocolate recipes, cookies, cakes, bars and bites, puddings, and everything else. I hope you enjoy!
Here are 5 of my favourite vegan oil-free desserts with chocolate, which also happens to be my favourite flavour!
These chocolate truffles are super easy to make with just 2 basic ingredients. They can be enjoyed as is or you can coat them in more chocolate and decorate with vegan cake decorations.
Dairy-free chocolate covered strawberries are simple to make and great for children to help with. You can decorate them according to your preference using a variety of vegan chocolate and cake decorations.
Flour and coconut milk are the only ingredients you need to make these fluffy scones. Because they don't contain sugar, you can pair them with either sweet or savoury fillings such as vegan cheese, strawberry jam, vegan butter or dairy-free whipped cream.
This pavlova is crunchy on the outside, with a soft, marshmallow-like texture on the inside. It's made with aquafaba instead of eggs and can be topped with vegan whipped cream and anything else you like.
