Plant-based ingredients tips and their substitution

 

Cream puffs are usually non-vegan. This time we were using plant-based ingredients. And also they are easy to find they are mostly in your kitchen.

 

1. Butter

  • Make sure they are vegan, dairy-free, and non-dairy.

2. Natural Sweetener

3. Kosher salt

  • Use to balance the taste of the sweetness of these cream puffs.

4. All-purpose flour

  • Feel free to use almond flour, coconut flour, corn flour, or rice flour. To make this recipe gluten-free use certified gluten-free flour.

5. Flax seeds

  • As a vegan recipe, instead of using eggs use 1 tablespoon of flax seeds plus 3 tablespoons of water. Or feel free to use egg vegan substitutes such as aquafaba, chia egg, applesauce, etc.

6. Powdered Sugar

  • Make sure they are organic I highly recommended Bob’s Red Mill brand. They produce organic and vegan products.

7. Instant Vanilla Pudding

8. Plant-based Milk

  • Feel free to use your favorite unsweetened milk, non-dairy milk, or plant-based milk.

 

Ingredients Note

  • To keep this vegan, make sure all the store-bought ingredients you are using are completely made with plant-based ingredients or organic. I suggest Bob’s Red Mill brand as they produce organic products, and always check the labels.
