These Vegan Vanilla Pistachio Madeleines are simple to make and require less than 10 main ingredients to make. They have the perfect level of sweetness and you will feel yourself transported to Paris!
The first time I had madeleines was in the summer of my junior year in college while taking a summer abroad food writing course in Paris. It was my first time traveling out of the country and I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to try all the food, especially the sweets. The first bakery I went to was one of the original bakeries in Paris, only a short 10-minute walk from the dorm I was staying in.
I walked there almost every morning to taste the fresh baguettes and pastries, one being madeleines. I love how soft they are, lightly sweetened and fluffy inside. They are like little soft sponge cakes in cookie size form! Since then, I have always wanted to learn how to make a vegan and gluten-free version of them. Here comes this Vanilla-Pistachio Madeleine! Easy to make and so tasty. I definitely have been snacking on them throughout the day and with a cup of tea or coffee if you prefer.
