For your next holiday gathering try making this delicious easy vegan cranberry cream cheese loaf and pair it with some almond crackers!
Good morning all, hope you all had a good weekend! I am back with another cozy Fall recipe today and it is actually two simple recipes… I am joining Krista at The Happy Housie for this Seasonal Simplicity Series fun! I had a few requests on how to make the delicious almond crackers from my last recipe post, so I am excited to share how to make them with the easiest vegan cranberry cream cheese loaf…
Here is what you will need for the almond crackers:
- 1 and 1/3 cups of almond flour
- 1 egg or 1 flax egg (using 1 tbsp. flax seed with 3 tbs. water)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp oil (I used almond oil)
And here is how you will make these easy crackers:
Set the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients with a whisk and then incorporate the wet ingredients…
This should form a dough ball…
Flatten it in between two pieces of parchment paper and roll into about a 1/4 inch thickness. Remove the top parchment paper sheet.
Use a butter knife to cut the almond crackers into square shapes. And then use a toothpick or metal skewer to poke holes into each cracker. Transfer the bottom parchment paper sheet with the unbaked crackers to a cookie sheet. Put the crackers in the oven for approximately 10 minutes. You may need an additional 5 or so minutes but check on these until golden brown and mostly crispy. You can remove ones that have cooked enough and let the softer ones keep cooking if needed.
Here is what you will need for the Cream Cheese Loaf:
- Sunflower seeds (or really any seed/nut of your choice)
- A vegan cream cheese brick or square (I have found an amazing vegan cream cheese option from Miyokos. But of course you can actually use a true cream cheese!)
While your crackers bake, you will want to prepare your cheese loaf (if it is in a container, you will want to remove it before hand so that the cream cheese keeps its shape). Set out the cream cheese so it softens a bit.
Chop up the cranberries and sunflower seeds so that they are a bit more crumbly.
Here below you can see the cream cheese set out and the crumbled fruit/seed mixture. You will want to gently press the fruit/seed mixture onto the softened cheese. You can shape a bit as you go as well.
And there you have it! Such an easy delicious fall recipes to put together in no time!
Next I am going to show you how to assemble these two parts together!
I just took my vegan cheese loaf and placed it on a cutting board, but a plate would do fine too!
I laid out the crackers alongside the loaf and then used a few rosemary sprigs as a pretty accent!
I love recipes like this where you can take basic ingredients and make something delicious!
I hope you enjoyed and I do really hope you think this is as delicious as we do!
