A short while ago, my previously ignorant self learned about aquafaba, the perfect vegan egg-white replacement. It turns out, the water in which canned chickpeas are sitting and we usually throw away, behaves just like egg whites and deserves a special place in any vegan’s diet. Today I’m sharing some amazing aquafaba dessert recipes for vegans, which I think you will be thrilled to try.

Why? you might ask. Because as a vegan it can be very difficult to replace egg whites, especially in desserts but you probably already know that. Luckily, with aquafaba, you don’t have this problem anymore although if you fall in love with this wonderful ingredient like I did, you’re probably going to eat a lot of hummus in the process. After all, you’re not going to take the water and throw away the chickpeas right? Here we go!

5 Amazing Aquafaba Dessert Recipes For Vegans

Technically, you can use aquafaba in any recipe that normally requires egg whites, so the possibilities are endless and sometimes beyond what we can imagine. Check out this vegan butter recipe made with aquafaba. However, today we’re going to focus on aquafaba dessert recipes, and I promise you won’t regret it!

These brownies are awesome! Crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside – what more could you ask? And if you don’t have any aquafaba on hand you can use flax or chia seeds to make the thick liquid required in the recipe.
