Dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups oats ground into flour (180 g)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (60 g) or ground sunflower seeds or hemp seeds for a nut-free version
  • 3 tbsp ground flax seeds or chia seeds (20 g)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Spice mix: 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup plant-based milk (300 ml)
  • 1 large banana (120 g), mashed with a fork (or 1/2 cup apple sauce for a banana free version)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave syrup (105 g)
  • 1 tbsp black strap molasses (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 400 g silken tofu or regular tofu (firm)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave syrup (105 g)
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk canned (80 ml)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp instant espresso powder or 2-3 tbsp strong coffee
  • pinch of salt


  • 4-5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or agave syrup (80 g)
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
  • pinch of salt


  1. Start making the gingerbread (and brownies) first. For the gingerbread, transfer all dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk together the wet ingredients in a different bowl

  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until combined

  3. Pour the batter into a muffin mold (or any other cake mold - it actually doesn't matter) and bake in the oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (the time depends on the mold you use)

  4. Follow the instructions for the brownies in the recipe linked here: RECIPE 1 or RECIPE 2 (of course only if you want to include brownies in your vegan tiramisu)

  5. To make the cream blend all ingredients together in your high-speed blender or food processor. If your tofu isn't firm, you will need to use less coconut milk

  6. For the chocolate sauce, simply mix all ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk. If the sauce is too thick, add more maple syrup, if it's too thin add more cocoa powder

  7. Assemble the tiramisu in glass jars like pictured above in the blog post. Enjoy!

    PS: You might end up with some gingerbread and brownie leftovers which isn't a bad thing after all!
