Yes, you can reconstitute the Laird Superfood creamer in advance, so that you have Laird Superfood creamer in liquid form! (Read on for how to do it!) The Laird Superfood creamer is all the rage in the Vegan Costco group, and elsewhere, and for good reason! First, the awesome and clean ingredients: coconut milk powder, coconut sugar, calcium from marine algae (their proprietary version is Aquamin, which always makes us think of Aquaman), and extra virgin coconut oil. The coconut sugar and the coconut oil are organic, to boot!
Want an easy, delicious, gluten-free vegan doughnut recipe? One that doesn’t even resort to flax eggs or the like?

This healthy gluten-free date bars recipe is easy, delicious, and, of course, vegan! And you probably already have everything that you need to make these vegan date squares of lusciousness! We use the Deglet Noor pitted dates from Costco for this recipe, although of course you can use other dates. Deglet Noor dates are perfect little powerhouses of nutrients and energy (not to mention that they taste wonderful! Sweet, but not too sweet!) Deglet Noor dates contain fiber, protein, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron, B6, flavanoids and carotenoids! Who knew that these sweet little fruits were so healthful??
If you are looking for a fast, easy gluten-free dairy-free no-roll pie crust dough (gosh look at all those hyphens), this is it! This vegan pie crust recipe uses no shortening, and because the “flour” is made from uncooked oatmeal oats (so technically it’s an oatmeal pie crust) you can make it sweet or savory, as an oat pie crust is as perfect for quiche as it is for a dessert pie or bars. You can also prebake this no-roll oat crust!
Woohoo! A vegan copycat Orange Julius recipe! We are sure that we aren’t the only ones who have fond memories of Orange Juliuses as kids, and who might wish for a vegan Orange Julius to allow us to take a trip down memory lane, veganized. Or maybe you want to make vegan Orange Juliuses for your kids. Either way, you are going to love our copycat Orange Julius recipe that’s also a vegan copycat Orange Julius recipe! Plus we include a special optional secret ingredient that makes it so authentic!
Golden Turmeric Cups (nicknamed Golden Cups or even Golden Fat Bombs) are super-easy to make, super delicious, and super good for you! And of course they are gluten-free and vegan. Full of healthy fats, and with the MCTs from coconut oil, and protein from nut butter and protein powder, they are a great ‘pick-me-up’ snack, and perfect for quick-quenching a bit of hunger! We get all of the main ingredients (all three of them :~)) at Costco, but you can of course get them elsewhere as well.
If you are looking for a healthful and different dessert or snack (or hey, breakfast bars), look no further. Our gluten-free vegan fig bars are it!

It’s apple season here, and in our house that means it’s time to make a crisp (also known as a crumble).

It’s made with almond flour, oats, a little sugar, and vegan butter; no other gluten-free flour needed!

In fact, these scones are (or can be made to be) reminiscent of the maple oat scones of Starbucks fame, if you like!
Even though the Just company doesn’t recommend it, you can freeze Just Egg just fine (see what we did there?), and neither you nor the Just Egg will suffer any ill effects. Now, to be clear, we are talking about bottles of Just Egg, the kind that you find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Just Egg does also put out a frozen, precooked product, called Just Egg Folded, that you pop in the toaster and then put on a sandwich; that’s not what we are talking about here – we’re talking about the original, liquid Just Egg.
We love us some hash brown potatoes, and we particularly like the shelf-stable cartons of dried hashbrowns (the manufacturer has it as one word even though technically it’s two words) that you can get from Costco. You just open the top of the carton, pour in boiling water, and let it sit for 12 minutes: presto! Enough shredded raw hashed potatoes to feed a small army – if that army is 2-4 people. The carton says it makes seven servings, but c’mon, who do they think they’re kidding?
You will not believe how easy it is to make homemade cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries. Don’t like cranberry sauce? If your entire experience with cranberry sauce is with that gelatinous stuff from a can, we urge you to try fresh cranberry sauce. The difference is night and day. It’s like the difference between canned green beans and fresh green beans, or canned mushrooms and fresh mushrooms, or…well you get the point.

Made entirely with shelf-stable products, the majority of which we get from Costco, this is a perfect recipe to make from things you have on hand in your pantry (and so it is both a ‘quarantine recipe’ and a ‘Costco recipe’).
We’re huge fans of vegan cheese sauce. Vegan cheese sauce made from cashews, vegan cheese sauce made from coconut milk, you name just about any vegan cheese sauce made from pretty much anything, and we’re there. So we were surprised to realize one day that we’d never had, let alone made, a vegan cheese sauce out of tofu! Like, how obvious is that?
If you are mourning the disappearance of Costco’s all-natural organic peanut butter, take heart! It’s easier and, we think, better to make your own! And you can make it smooth or chunky! All you need is a food processor and organic peanuts, and you can use either raw peanuts or roasted peanuts!
