Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

October 30, 2017 Healthy Flourless Vegan Fudge Brownies, Facebook recipe #3

The link to the original recipe no longer works; however it is from Big Man's World healthy flourless Fudge Brownies. The link for the original video is on livingvancouverloca's facebook page which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/livingvancouverloca/.

I could only watch the video and not find the original recipe so this is not an exact recipe; however it turned out okay.


There are only 5 ingredients and my version is vegan since I used vegan chocolate chips

 sweet potato, cocoa powder, almond butter for the brownies. My friend gave me the giant potato and I steamed it but not long enough.
 The original recipe says to heat the nut butter but I don't have a microwave so I decided that I could mash the potato and mix the butter in the blender of my magic bullet. It didn't work very well and I had to add water to mix it a little.
 In the end I came out with a decent looking batter. The original recipe calls for cooking at 350 for 25 minutes. I cooked in the toaster oven with a bigger sweet potato so I cooked for 40 minutes at 350.
 Then for the icing melt chocolate chips and coconut milk. I used my steamer pot to melt it but I originally put too much milk in.
 Too much milk means more chocolate
 now they are frosted
 I have this left over chocolate if I freeze it will turn to ice cream?
Final result I am not a fan. They are not sweet enough and have a bit of a dry texture. I may try this again using pumpkin or banana instead of sweet potato.

What I am a fan of is the frozen chocolate it tastes great and the texture is like that of a cheaper vegan ice cream. I think if I mix a frozen banana in it next time I will get a really great chocolate soft serve.
