Vegan Pear Cake

Veganuary is here! Since its inception in 2014, Veganuary has encouraged people to consider going vegan for the month of January. Inspiring over one million people globally, Veganuary aims to make vegan/plant-based diets more visible and accessible.

The health benefits of incorporating a vegan diet are varied and plentiful, however many people may feel that finding appropriate plant-based alternatives to foods and ingredients we know and love can be difficult.

One vegan-friendly ingredient that is considered a staple in many households is of course, maple syrup! Pure Canadian maple syrup is not only an all-natural sugar, free from any additives and preservatives, it’s also 100% vegan – making it the perfect replacement to honey and other artificial sugars and sweeteners.

Pure Canadian maple syrup is versatility personified; packed with a whole host of vitamins and minerals, coupled with a unique taste and flavour, it’s the perfect addition to a variety of popular vegan meals.
