When I first went vegan one of my first purchases was a juicer (and a blender). Before turning vegan I had never tried or drank a green juice, maybe because they weren’t trendy yet or maybe I just never cared for it. I can tell you now that juicing has nothing to do with being vegan.
This is one of my favourite smoothie combinations when I’m craving something filling and very healthy. This is a smoothie you can drink for breakfast, before a workout, or when you need to fuel up for a long day ahead.
This smoothie is definitely one of my go-to smoothies any time and day of the week. For weekdays before work I always make myself a smoothie for breakfast and this recipe has been made on average at least 2-3 times a week for the past two years. This smoothie is so quick and easy to whip up it makes for the perfect breakfast when your busy and crunched for time.
Cookies for breakfast. Yes.
I like to wake up and have a warm lemon drink or a smoothie and along with that I also like to have some sort of substance that isn’t just liquid. Working early in the morning on weekdays I also don’t have time to prepare much and breakfast needs to be food I can eat on the go so cereal and pancakes were out. I came across some breakfast vegan cookies at a restaurant nearby and thought to myself instead of wondering how much sugar was in them or justifying spending $3.10 on a cookie every morning, I decided that I would try and make my own. I have found the perfect amount of each ingredient to transform them into the perfect healthy breakfast cookie.
These cookies are soft, chewy, moist and delicious and are so easy to make only requiring one bowl to make them in. When I eat them I feel like I should feel guilty but then I remember that literally every single ingredient in these cookies are pure, whole foods offering a variety of nutrients. I usually make a batch of these cookies every Sunday and take one on-the-go in the morning before I leave to go to work. Its prettttyyyy hard to only eat one a day…..they don’t always make it to the end of the week but I’m not complaining.
These are by far the best cookies i have ever made and had…and i’ve had a lot of cookies. After you have just one, you will crave these again and again and again. The taste and texture are just absolutely perfect and you would NEVER know these were vegan and gluten-free.
I have been experimenting a lot with gluten-free baking and discovered I really like it as it makes vegan baking easier because there’s so much variety with flours, emulsifiers and thickeners that when combined properly make the best damn taste and texture that is different from standard white-flour, egg and milk cookies.
I am obsessed with this banana bread. I never used to be a fan of banana bread until I tried it homemade!
This recipe is dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free, and can be made gluten-free too. It is so scrumptious, moist, and you would never have any idea that it was free of all those ingredients. I have made this recipe countless times so I can assure you it is the real deal and every single time, evvvverrryyy single time, it comes out perfect.
