For a good month straight, I made a banana bread loaf every, single, week. No regrets!” – Rosa, This Healthy Kitchen

Seriously, nothing beats fresh, warm bagels with vegan cream cheese!!!” – Kathy, me, Healthy Happy Life

Bread! The most basic and excellent stress baking recipe there’s. And oh my goodness, this sourdough from Amanda seems to be completely good. Swoon!

This everyday sourdough recipe is straightforward enough for beginners, and the one I make every single week.” – Amanda, Heartbeet Kitchen

Love the thought of putting nut butter in muffins!…
“The recipe I’ve been stress baking is my Almond Butter Raspberry Muffins. At the start of our first lockdown interval (we’re now in our second 6 week stint) I went a bit mad making nut butters, freezing fruit and veggies and pickling anything that wouldn’t transfer. Now I have a ton of frozen fruits and jars of nut butter for days. I bake with my 6 year-old. It’s one thing we will do collectively when issues are feeling a bit of “hectic” in the house. Baking soothes the cabin fever.” – Amanda, my goodness kitchen

Also, banana and chocolate together are like a cure for everything bad in the world.” – Robin, vegan dollhouse

18 – Vegan Chick’n Wraps
You should not have to BAKE to be stress cooking. Love these wraps by Cadry!!!…
“While we’ve carried out a bit of baking the previous few months, that kind of fell to the wayside after the first few weeks. But the recipe I’ve been turning to many times isn’t a lot of a recipe in any respect. It’s a simple wrap with pre-made vegan chick’n strips, non-dairy feta, leafy greens, and recent vegetables. Then it’s completed with a lemon tahini drizzle. There’s a healthy mixture of salt/fat/crunch, in addition to extra nutrient dense stuff too. It’s really fast, and it all the time sounds good. That sort of low stress cooking is profitable out right now.” – Cadry, Cadry’s Kitchen
Make these wraps!
19 – Rosemary Bread
This distinctive bread is definitely one to attempt! Love all the great things in right here!
“The recipe I’ve been stress baking each single week is my favorite Rosemary Bread. It provides the satisfaction of bread, however it’s so much healthier.

Bonus, all you do is mix it in one bowl and bake. So straightforward!” – whitney, a wellness area
Make this bread!
20 – Pesto Pizza
Put pizza on your stress cooking menu – for positive…
“All of the primary “baking phases” of lockdown seem to have bypassed me utterly. I by no means made banana bread or sourdough in lockdown (not once I should buy natural sourdough made with regionally grown wheat for €2 with my veg box). But pizza is one dish I stored coming back to. I made a vegan deep dish that reminded me of pizzas from my childhood. I made a vegan margherita while reminiscing about travels by way of Italy. And I made this vegan pesto and cashew ricotta pizza on a “Zoom cooking call” with a pal to fulfill a longing for pesto pizza from a sorely missed native eatery. All of these pizzas reminded me of the past, and in addition gave me hope for the longer term — seeing my family once more, touring as soon as extra and the straightforward act of eating out with pals!” – Caitlin, the vegan phrase

Last month I made a huge batch of these healthy crackers in the middle of the night and the family inhaled them in 24 hours. So now I am making them every few days.

Not technically a baking recipe however I’ve been making it on repeat every week since my motivation has been lower these days. It’s extremely straightforward to make and is the right quick snack to maintain me once I’m not in the mood to make something.
