Vegan Cake – Chocolate-Covered Katie
Guest Blogger – Michelle P
How would you like to make a vegan cake and eat it? Also eat all of your favorite desserts and still feel healthy while you fit into your skinniest jeans?
How does vegan cake for breakfast sound? Meet Katie, the girl who consumes chocolate every day. When her sugar intake went too far in college, Katie was left lacking energy and realized that changes had to be made.
She then began to develop her own naturally sweet recipes and post them online. Soon enough, her healthy dessert blog became an internet sensation with about six million monthly visitors.
In her first cookbook, Chocolate-Covered Katie, she shares over 80 never-before-seen recipes such as peanut butter pudding pops, chocolate obsession cake and ultimate unbaked brownies.
All her recipes are meant to use only real ingredients, without unwanted fats, sugars and empty calories. These desserts have proven once and for all that happiness and health can work hand-in-hand. So you can enjoy the sugar rush from desserts!
This cookbook has so many delicious and healthy recipes that even if you are not vegan, you will most definitely enjoy the treats!
Chocolate-Covered Katie will completely transform the way you cook and eat. Vegans and their non-vegan friends have turned to Katie’s blog and healthy treats by sharing her posts on social media sites. From then on, people have tried out Katie’s recipes and discovered how amazing they are. Chocolate-Covered Katie will never bring you any disappointment. This is the one cookbook that you will need to have on your shelves especially if you would die for sweet treats!
Although Katie’s blog also provides recipes for entrees, Chocolate-Covered Katie focuses just on desserts. Trust us when we say they are amazing desserts! AND the most shocking revelation: although the title does not mention it, all of the recipes are vegan.

Even the carnivores would undoubtedly enjoy chocolate or ice cream as their desserts and would not like any other dessert outside Chocolate-Covered Katie. Treat your partner with ‘Betterfinger’ Bars and Pumpkin Chocolate Pizzokie.
Most of the 80 recipes are brand-new, and there is an attractive full-color photo to accompany each recipe. Cookbooks with images are the best because they inspire you to try out new recipes.
Katie also includes a few favorite recipes from her blog.
Besides the photos, each recipe also comes with a nutritional analysis, gluten-free options and notes about alternatives if there are no other ingredients on hand that the original recipe calls for.
Although you would not be needing a high-speed blender like Vitamix or Blendtec for making the recipes, you will need an efficient blender and/or a food processor.
