If you’re new to plant-based meal planning, desserts can be daunting. But they needn’t be.

There are now so many vegan alternatives on the market there’s a substitute for just about every ingredient – even for baking.

With that in mind, we’ve pulled together five of Sephra’s top vegan dessert ideas, which couldn’t be easier to make.

Even better, three of them are no-cook!

No-Egg Banoffee Meringues 

Banoffee Meringues

You will need:

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees fahrenheit (or 194 for fan ovens) and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Drain the chickpeas over a sieve into a bowl. It’s the chickpea water you want rather than the chickpeas, but you can save those for later.
  3. Whisk the chickpea water with an electric whisk as you would egg whites until soft peaks form. Then add the sugar a little at a time, whisking as you go until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  4. Expect to whisk the mixture for longer than you normally would to achieve the same consistency.
  5. Once the mixture holds its shape (you can turn it upside down if you like), pipe little blobs of around 8cm onto the lined baking tray.
  6. Leave to bake for approx. 1hr 15mins or until crisp and leave to cool.
  7. Finally, chop your bananas into discs and whip the plant-based double cream alternative before layering onto your meringues and finishing with a healthy drizzle of warm toffee sauce.
