It’s time for another vegan birthday for me! My birthday is April 14th and I’m looking forward to being 23. (Fun fact, supposedly women are most attractive to men when they’re 23!). Instead of posting a recipe, I’ve rounded up other bloggers’ favorite birthday recipes.
It’s time to get ready for a birthday recipe overload. We have a vegan birthday cake recipe, a vegan birthday dinner recipe and many vegan birthday desserts and treats. Hell, somebody even suggested a vegan birthday breakfast.
Though I like stick to whole foods, birthdays give room for deviation. Some of these treats are 100% healthy, whole foods. Others… not so much. Provided you’re not eating the ones with refined foods every day, why not indulge a bit on your special day.
Without further ado: 10 vegan birthday recipes to make your day fabulous and delicious.

“I tend to lean into chocolate on my birthday, and one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations is chocolate + orange, so this would be my mid-day chocolate.”

“Brunch is and always will be my favorite meal of the day. And while pancakes, waffles, smoothies, and more are all delicious I like to step it up with a cinnamon roll to make my birthday extra special.”
“I’m more of a savoury person when it comes to treats, and while cooking is my life, it’s lovely when someone else (i.e. my beloved!) makes something special for my birthday. This Thai Salad, which is both savoury and sweet, is one of my favourite meals, and it’s so simple that even when someone who doesn’t enjoy cooking (i.e. my beloved!) can make it.”

“I made this cake for my birthday last year—I absolutely loved it because of the flavour of chocolate and beetroot, and because it has a vegetable in it! I love sneaking vegetables into dessert, even on my birthday.”

“I love this recipe. It’s quick and simple. For my birthday I made a dark cake with this chocolate mousse filling.”

“Gluten-free, vegan, paleo, “everything-free” funfetti doughnuts! I’m a huge advocate for ALL the sprinkles on a birthday and doughnuts are always fun!”

“I had these raw carrot cake bites for my second vegan birthday back in 2014. I was without an oven to bake a cake, so I made these carrot cake bites instead. I love the unique pairing of carob (chocolate) and carrot together. And since they use carrot pulp and whole foods, they’re healthy too.”

“Cheesecake was my favorite dessert growing up. I love this recipe because I can literally have my cheesecake and eat it, too (cheese-free).”

“I wasn’t the typical kid asking for cake on my birthday. I wanted a fresh homemade strawberry pie instead. Lucky for me my birthday is in May, the middle of strawberry season. So on that special day you can always find me devouring my favorite dessert – a whole Strawberry Pie with Walnut Oat Crust!”

“This was my birthday dessert a few years back, it was super delicious! Made me feel like a kid again, I have always loved peanut butter and jelly.”
