Top 7 New Years Finger Food Favourites

Entertaining guests for New Year’s is a challenge on its own and if you add being vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free to the mix, makes it near to impossible. Here are my favourite recipes that will ease that stress of finding alternatives for you or your guests while making those New Year’s celebrations so much more delicious.

Vegan All-Natural Holiday Pomegranate & Orange Grapefruit Gumdrops

Everyone loves a good gummy. I wanted to make this version as healthy and natural as possible while keeping true to the taste and texture of the gummies. However, it is hard to find good all-natural, vegan gummies recipes that reproduce the texture well as well as the original version.

Vegan Cherry Fruit Cake

Fruit cakes have a bad rap. Traditional fruit cakes you’ll often find strange tasting artificial candied fruits that, quite frankly, could do without. Other vegan fruit cake recipes I found to be dry and crumbly. This recipe redeems fruit cake. Its dense, moist & healthy.

Decadent Gluten-Free Vegan Dark Chocolate Brownies

Gluten-free often makes desserts dry and brittle but this version is a lot more moist than the standard gluten-free brownie recipe. Low in sugar and packed with vitamins, these are healthiest yet decadent brownies ever.

Muhammara Roasted Red Pepper Walnut Dip

Consider this colourful Syrian dish as an appetizer for the holidays. Full of protein & good fats, its great for Keto and low carb diets.

Baba Ganouj (Middle Eastern Eggplant Dip)

This classic middle eastern dip is low in carbs, keto-friendly, and is one of my go-to’s when I’m hungry and trying to lose weight. It’s a great alternative to hummus for those who are carb conscious.

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies with Rosewater Icing

Pistachios are by far my favourite nut. It’s got that aromatic after taste that keeps you coming back for more. You pair that with rosewater, and the taste is reminiscent of baklavas. Most gluten-free & vegan shortbread recipes I found to be complete fails. This one is surprisingly just like the original version.

Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Spice Donuts

These vegan donuts are deliciously spicy, light and airy, super healthy are awesome with or without icing.
