There are a lot of reasons to love apple cider vinegar: It helps with weight loss, ups energy, and can improve digestion. It's also part of a seemingly magic formula that can replace buttermilk in baked goods. While this is great news for vegans, using ACV in place of buttermilk dramatically cuts down on calories, fat, and cholesterol. Basically a win for anyone trying to lead a healthier lifestyle.

If Starbucks is your second home, you're going to freak out over our copycat iced lemon pound cake. The vegan treat has less calories and sugar than the original, but more fiber and protein.

Um, look at that photo—no one would ever know these frosted chocolate doughnuts are actually healthy. Because they're made with chickpeas, these doughnuts end up being a good source of fiber and protein. Not to worry, you won't taste them in the final product!

The frosting on our chocolate cupcakes is so creamy, it's hard to believe that there isn't an ounce of butter or cream cheese in them. Avocado is actually the base for the frosting along with cocoa, maple, and vanilla.
