In a vegan kitchen, nothing’s more important than having a (variety of) sweeteners you trust– because typical ingredients, like butter and eggs, are off the table– literally.
For many, maple syrup is at the top of the list when it comes to natural sweeteners. So, whether you’re a strict vegan or simply someone who likes to keep their meals plant-based, we compiled 6 vegan recipes to try using maple syrup.
1. Vegan Coconut Cream Pancakes Recipe
Nothing kicks the morning off like pancakes. For those who follow a vegan or gluten-free diet, these Vegan Coconut Cream Pancakesare for you. To make them, simply mix oats, water, bananas, cinnamon, and vanilla in a blender, cook on the skillet using coconut oil, and serve topped with maple syrup, coconut whipped cream, and berries.
2. Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables with Maple Glaze Recipe
There’s no better way to elevate your favorite veg than by roasting them on a sheet pan and topping with our Maple Glaze. To prepare this easy sheet pan creation, roast your favorite veggies (we tested this recipe using asparagus, potatoes, and onions) and top with a mixture of vegan margarine, salt, pepper, and maple syrup. Enjoy this dish on its own or paired with the protein of your choice.
3. Runamok Sesame Noodles Recipe
For a filling dish quick and easy enough to serve as a weeknight meal and sophisticated enough to be a weekend special, try our Runamok Sesame Noodles. To create, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, water, ginger, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, and maple syrup in a blender, top over cooked spaghetti, add asparagus, and serve with scallions and sesame seeds. If you end up with leftovers, never fear! This dish tastes even better served cold the next day.
4. Chia Pudding with Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup Recipe
High in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and minerals, chia seeds are both good and good for you. As a result, eating them first thing in the morning just makes sense. The best way to incorporate chia seeds into your breakfast, in our opinion, is by starting the morning with our Chia Pudding featuring Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup. This pillowy, delicate pudding is the perfect vehicle for your favorite nuts and fruit, while our Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup adds a hint of smoky sweetness.
