Ever browse the grocery store aisles wishing there were more plant-based bread and baked good options? Well, you’re in luck!

The Allen family opened Mo’Pweeze Bakery as a way to provide delicious vegan desserts to those who suffer from food allergies. Every item served at the bakery is free from the top common allergens, so there is something for everyone on the menu.

Cue up the new season of Sweet Magnolias on Netflix and curl up with a sweet treat from Southern Girl Desserts. This Los Angeles-based sweets shop was founded in 2007 by Florida natives Catarah Coleman and Shoneji Robison, who combined their family recipes to create a Southern-focused bakery. The vegan chocolate chip cookies are available by the dozen for nationwide shipping, and make the perfect gift or sweet snack. If you are in the LA area, you can also get vegan cupcakes, vegan mini cupcakes, and vegan cakes for pickup.
Look cute as a cupcake as you indulge in the delicious treats from this vegan-friendly bakery. The cupcakery specializes in ready-to-eat cupcakes-in-a-jar, which are hand-packed with two layers of cake (baked from scratch) and two layers of icing, in an 8oz or 4oz jar. Vegan options include flavors like banana, chocolate, Oreo, peanut butter, and vanilla.
The story behind the name of this LA-based bakery is just as sweet as the delicious treats they serve. The owner and founder, Chef CiCi, named the business after her grandmothers, Madeline and Pearl. Madeline is her father’s mother. Madeline represented creativity, African culture, and arts. Pearl is her maternal grandmother, who represents faith, elegance, and wisdom. Chef CiCi’s passion and love for cooking can be tasted in every item she bakes, like the delicious cinnamon rolls, which can be made vegan upon request. Vegan cookies, brownies, and loaves are also available, such as snickerdoodle cookies and banana bread loaves.
Chef Brandon, the owner of this bakeshop, began experimenting with healthy alternatives to sugar- and carb-packed sweets after discovering he had a gluten allergy in 2013. That’s when he created the one-of-a-kind vegan avocado keto brownies, which are filled with vegan chocolate chips and are soy-free, xanthan gum-free, and packed with creamy avocados. Vegan keto cinnamon rolls, vegan Big Mike donuts, vegan chocolate chip muffins, and vegan matcha keto truffles are also available. Some of these items come in non-vegan varieties, so be sure to check the “vegan” box, and they’ll whip up the goods for you sans dairy and egg!
Do you like cupcakes and the element of surprise? If you answered yes, then The Cupcake Collection is the bakery for you! The vegan cupcakes can be ordered in a pack of six and include a pre-selected assortment of baker’s choice flavors, such as sweet potato, chocolate, vanilla, or red velvet. All four varieties are also gluten-free.
