When it comes to sweets, a lot of people tend to go for the chocolate desserts. Which is totally fine, we love chocolate over here! However, more often than not, vanilla treats often takes a backseat in the culinary world. Many people claim that it’s boring. Well, we went through the Food Monster App and found 15 Vanilla Recipes that are the opposite of boring. In fact, we do believe you will find them mouth-watering.

Emily von Euw‘s Vanilla Coffee Cream Tart is a creamy, sweet, surprisingly light, and unsurprisingly delicious recipe.

This isn’t a dessert to be missed.

Clémence Moulaert‘s Madeleines look sophisticated but the trickiest bit is just being patient enough to decorate them. The thing to remember with madeleines is that they dry out very quickly, so it’s best to eat them the same day, especially when they’re gluten-free.

6. Vanilla Lucuma Buckwheat Shake

Shannon Hickman‘s Vanilla Lucuma Shake is nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free and low in fat but still high in protein and fiber. The buckwheat in smoothies makes them so creamy and filling. The frozen pear, vanilla, and spices all compliment the Vanilla Lucuma protein quite nicely.

7. Vanilla Glazed Vegan Yeast Doughnuts

We know that the fried versions of doughnuts are not as healthy as the baked, but really, it’s like comparing fried potato chips to baked potato chips. You can’t beat the crunch of super sweet vanilla glaze over a warm fried doughnut, fresh from the frying oil. Abby Thompson‘s Vanilla Doughnuts do take a little time, between the two rise times and a bit of frying, but it is well worth the time commitment and fear of frying things in oil.

8. 5 Ingredient Mini Vanilla Almond Cookies
