Hey, I’m Audrey. Welcome to my blog — Unconventional Baker! I started this blog with the aim of sharing desserts and treats that anyone can enjoy and that are free from many health sensitive ingredients such as gluten, dairy, eggs, and refined sugars, etc. I aim to keep all my recipes as nutritious, simple, and wholesome as possible, and of course absolutely delicious and fun too!
About the recipes
I strive to create unique recipe that are nourishing and that can easily be enjoyed by most, regardless of health or dietary concerns. As such, you’ll find quite a range of recipes to suit various nutritional needs, but the basic common denominator is that ALL of the vegan recipes here are inherently gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and refined sugar-free. Many are also free from oils, nuts, and other allergens.
As someone who has a lot of experience dealing with food sensitivities and dietary restrictions, I know how hard it can be to find good recipes – especially when dealing with multiple “off limit” foods. But over the years I’ve learned that no matter what dietary challenges you are facing, there are still ways to enjoy a sweet treat!
I love playing around with different ingredients (though always aiming to keep things simple so that they are within reach for most), recreating alternative versions of classics, and branching out and creating new and completely unconventional treats. In fact, my kitchen pantry is an ever-expanding area that is threatening to take over everything in sight at any given moment! I love to bake. I love to unbake (raw cakes are my passion and you’ll see plenty of them around here). I love variety and freedom in the kitchen. And I love sharing my creations on here so you can enjoy them too.
I hope my recipes can in turn inspire you to find wholesome and delicious treats that will work for you.
