7 Vegan Christmas Baking Ideas
Posted on December 15 2017
With Christmas less than two weeks away, the anticipation is really building with people racing out to finish their shopping as well all of the other errands that Christmas brings along with it. One of the most pressing issues for most people however is the preparation of the food for the big day. Although the traditional Christmas treats such as Yule Log and Christmas Pudding can be delicious, it can leave Vegans and Vegetarians feeling left out due to the ingredients that are used in these festive snacks.
That's why here at Baking Time Club, we have come up with some Vegan Christmas baking inspiration for your Christmas 2017!
