Vegan Fall Baked Goods

Fall is the harbinger of so many wonderful things: football, apple picking, and cozy nights by the fire (just to name a few!). Although each season has its own unique charms, we love fall around here at Wildly Organic. Of course, up here in rural Minnesota, fall comes much sooner than it does in most other parts of the country. Perhaps it’s our early fall season that causes us to have such an affinity for this unique season.

One thing we love most about the fall is baking. Although pumpkin spice is the most prevalent flavor of the fall season—and we love our pumpkin spice lattes—there’s so many other wonderful fall flavors that we enjoy indulging in. Fall baked goods are so warm and comforting, which is why we absolutely love walnuts, pumpkin, or coconut bakes.

Wildly Organic has compiled three of our favorite recipes from over the years to give you a veritable cornucopia of fall flavors to indulge in. Enjoy these delicious tastes of the autumn season!
