Fat Maggie’s Fantasic Vegan Snickerdoodles
1 cup coconut oil (softened)
1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar (I recommend grinding it to make it finer, this is optional but it gives a better consistency)
4 tbsps tapioca starch
1 cup cold water
2 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
5 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups white flour
A bowl with a mix of cinnamon and sugar (heavy on the cinnamon) to roll the cookie dough balls in
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Mix the tapioca starch and the cold water in a cup separate from your mixing bowl and set aside. Use a handheld mixer (or a spoon and a lot of persistence) to cream together the coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, and then add the tapioca starch and water and mix together as well. Then add the salt, baking powder, and flour and mix until there are no more lumps and all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Make little balls (about the size of a golf ball or smaller) and roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture, getting them REALLY coated in cinnamon. Then place on an UNGREASED baking sheet and press down slightly with a fork. Place roughly two inches apart. Place in the oven for about fourteen minutes, then once removed from the oven, transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
This recipe makes about thirty cookies and is very very easy! Serving recommendation—dip them in a nice cold glass of almond milk. Mmmmm.

Veganize this http://www.bakersroyale.com/cocktail-popsicles-2/mochaccino-milkshake/

this would be very easy to veganize. i would recommend using coconut milk and coconut milk icecream for maximum creaminess.

VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH RHUBARB ICING

Cake Ingredients (I doubled this and used a 12” springform pan for my thick cake)

1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp distilled white or apple cider vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In an 8X8 square pan/dish, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a fork, making sure it is really blended together. Add the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar, and again, mix together so that it’s really blended together. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary.

Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack completely (2 hours) before icing. I poked holes in the cake to allow the icing to sink in, but that’s not necessary if you want thicker icing on the surface.

Icing recipe

I used the rest of the rhubarb syrup I made the other day and used on a lemon cake here: http://fuckyeahfatvegans.tumblr.com/post/90862686143/lemon-loaf-ingredients-2-large-lemons-1-1-2

warm the syrup in a small saucepan on the stove top but don’t bring to a boil to prevent scorching. add powdered sugar (icing sugar or confectioner’s sugar) until the mixture thickens. remember that it will thicken more when it cools so it doesn’t have to be the consistency you want for your cake yet. put icing aside to pour over cake when cake is ready.

Lemon Loaf

Ingredients:

2 large lemons

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

6 tsp. vegetable oil

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla

3/4 cup water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 Mix flour, sugar and baking soda in large mixing bowl. 

 Zest 1 full lemon rind into bowl with dry ingredients.

 Cut both lemons and squeeze lemon juice into separate bowl so the seeds don’t fall in the mixture. Mix juice into other ingredients.

Add water, oil, apple cider vinegar and vanilla to the large bowl.

Mix well, then place mix into a ungreased 8 inch cake pan. 

Bake for 30 minutes, keep an eye on it though, all stoves are different! 

Let it cool for 1-2 hours before icing it.

Rhubarb Syrup

Makes about 8 ounces

4 cups chopped rhubarb
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Combine the rhubarb, sugar, and water in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook gently, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the liquid has thickened slightly, about 20 minutes.

Set a fine-meshed strainer (or a coarse strainer lined with cheesecloth)over a large bowl. Pour the rhubarb through the strainer until most of the liquid is in the bowl. Press the solids a little with the back of a spoon to extract more syrup.

Carefully pour the syrup into a clean bottle, cover or cork the bottle and refrigerate. It should keep for quite some time in the fridge.

The leftover rhubarb solids also make a nice rough jam, so if you want you can put them in a clean jar and keep them in your refrigerator for a week or so. It’s great on toast!

Vegan Tattoo Info: How to make sure your tattoo is vegan!

Tattoos are awesome, but in a world where animals are so exploited they are in almost everything, how can you make sure that your tattoos are aligned with your ethics?

Before you go to your tattoo artist, there are a few things you need to know.
never assume that everything is vegan.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, even if you are annoying, it’s your right to be! Tattoos are personal, and as such your tattoo artist should cater to your every need.
If your artist isn’t willing to use vegan alternatives that you bring/ or supply them for you, go else where. They cannot run a business that caters to clients, without actually catering to them. Your money is best spent elsewhere, on someone who respects you and will Give you what you want.
Don’t be rude though, Always offer to buy the vegan alternatives yourself and bring them in for your Artist to use on you.

If there is a vegan tattoo studio near you (or vegan artist) GO TO THEM, support your fellow vegans!
If there isn’t, then that’s okay to, you can just find a vegan friendly artist. Asking studios if they have anyone who can do a vegan tattoo shows them that there is a demand, they will be more likely to start stocking vegan supplies and being more vegan friendly!
So, Don’t be afraid to ask, in the long run it will help others vegans!

Below are some common ingredients that can be found in tattoo inks and products used in the tattoo process, that are not vegan:

  • Glycerin: Made from animal fat, glycerin is a common ink stabilizer used to make the ink easier to work with. (but many brands do use vegetable Glycerin, just be wary)
  • Bone char: Black ink, the most popular and widely used color of all, is usually made with bone char, which is the soot from burned animal bones. Inks formulated with bone char are said to achieve the darkest, crispest shade of black. (India Ink in black inks, consists of burned animal bones.)
  • Gelatin: Made from animal hooves, gelatin is a binding agent and a frequent ink ingredient.
  • Shellac: Shellac is used as a binding agent and is made from beetles.
  • Indigotin 1: green ink often contains “Indigotin 1”, a pigment or color made from sour Indigotin - which stems from a special kind of slug, who are killed for Indigotin in particular.
    (Concerning the green color of many things: even some producers of wasabi paste add animal-based indigotin to their product.)
  • Lanolin: Made from sheep wool, lanolin is a common ingredient in lotions, ointments, Razor moisture strips, Transfer paper and salves used during the tattooing process, as well as in after care products.
  • Beeswax: Used in aftercare lotions and salves.
  • Cod Liver Oil: Used in aftercare lotions and salves.
  • Petroleum Jelly: Can be filtered through Bone Char, or owned by a company that test on animals (Vaseline is owned by Unilever)

Now of course a some of the things listed above can be vegan (Vegetable glycerin, Black ink) but it is always good to not just assume they are vegan!

Many Tattoo inks ARE vegan friendly, so don’t despair, in fact some of the biggest name brand inks are vegan!
You may see other lists that say some inks are vegan, when in fact they are NOT.
so, be super careful, I have tried to link all pages below to info confirming they are vegan! Since there is some conflicting information out there about some brands (especially black inks) I will be waiting for email confirmation, then adding them if they are vegan! so this list is not final, please check back and feel free to email the companies yourselves/ ask your tattoo artist.

Listed below are vegan tattoo inks:

As I said this is not a complete list, I am still waiting on confirmation from some companies, the ones above are CONFIRMED vegan. 
If you know of any inks that are in fact vegan, send me a message and I’ll look into it.

Vegan Alternatives to Vaseline or A&D: 

Please always ask your tattoo artist if they are comfortable using these alternatives, and if you choose to bring one in, make sure they are okay with it! communication is key!
Petroleum is also made from oil, so when it is used to make the skin smooth, some of it is tattooed into you.. it’s like having gasoline put into your skin! 

Green soaps & Alcohol: 
Always ask your tattoo artist if the glycerin in the green soap is vegetable based! Medical grade/rubbing Alcohol is vegan. If your Tattoo Artist cannot confirm the Green soaps Glycerin origin, ask them to use or bring your own:

Razors: 
The majority of razors have moisture strips containing lanolin or glycerin derived from animal fat, They also may be from brands that test on animals, even if they don’t have moisture strips (bic).
Below I’ve listed some vegan suitable razors, You can Bring your own or shave prior to your tattoo appointment. I personally use Preserve, they are made from recycled plastic and eco friendly!

Vegan Transfer paper & transfer Solutions: 
At the current time, there is only ONE vegan transfer paper, that is spirit VEGAN thermal transfer paper by reprofx. All other transfer paper is not vegan.
If your tattoo artist thinks that it’s “too expensive” to buy the vegan paper.. tell them it’s about 48c a sheet, and an investment in your loyal service + all your vegan friends will be stocked someone already has all vegan supplies! The investment is WELL WORTH the return. If they still refuse, buy yourself some transfer paper from the link below :)

Anesthetic and pain relief during tattoos: 
If you are having a rather long tattoo session, a little pain relief can help a lot! I have had 8+ hour sits, and without the anesthetic spray I would have tapped out at around 5 hours. Below are some vegan anesthetic sprays/ creams. Some only a professional can buy, so make sure to speak to your tattoo artist.

This will be an ever updated list of vegan products, so please check back regularly! And if anything on the list doesn’t belong there, or any thing needs to be added, message me and let me know.

Please be advised I am not a tattoo artist, I researched all this information myself, I may have left things out purposely, until i know for sure they are vegan. I do not want to spread misinformation.

Please share and reblog. x
