Happy Fat Tuesday! Just because you couldn’t make it to Mardi Gras this year doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with your very own king cake! Here are a few good, vegan king cake recipes to get you into the Mardi Gras spirit.

  1. The ever amazing Kittee shares a recipe for vegan king cake. Kittee’s recipes are always top notch!
  2. Peta’s king cake recipe gets rave reviews.
  3. If cake’s not your thing, you can still celebrate with Fat Free Vegan’s gluten free king cake cookies. Gluten free baked goods can be hit or miss, and 100% trust her gluten free baking powers. The Fat Free Vegan has never steered me wrong.

  1. Thanks for the links! I’ve been looking for some king cake recipes to try! One thing though, I’m a bit confused. That first link says “vegan, gluten free” but the first ingredient in the recipe on the linked page is whole wheat flour, which is absolutely not gluten free. Am I missing something?

    • Oh whoops! You’re not at all. Kittee’s blog is gluten free now, but it looks like this recipe is from before she went xGFx. :) I’ll update the post to reflect that. Thank you so much for commenting!
