Crunchy, sweet, and full of oatmeal flavor, these cookies are a true staple!
I LOVE an oatmeal cookie. But I am picky, my oatmeal cookies need to have a touch of cinnamon and need to be crispy. If they are squishy, it drives me nuts. I have no idea why, because, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and snickerdoodles MUST be soft.
Eating a oatmeal cookie is a something of pure joy. The earthy oats mixed with the sugar and the light hint of cinnamon, I mean perfection!
A few months ago (wow!) I did sugar-free January! This personal challenge really helped me reset my taste buds and enjoy food again! The challenge for me was not to loose weight, or to lean out, it was truly to wean myself off of the dependency of sugar. During the holidays, sugar is freakin’ everywhere. It is so easy to grab a cookie at 4pm hunger rather than an apple.
I am a huge double chocolate lover. Those double chocolate costco muffins use to be my all time fave, but alas…they ain’t vegan or gluten-free and would most likely kill me from a dairy attack and definitely from the enriched wheat flour.
no sugar, no gluten, no dairy+ animal products, ALL the flavor and ALL the sweetness of a double chocolate chip cookie!
1/2 of a ripe banana
1/4 cup of maple syrup or sugar free maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup of flax meal
2 tbsp of peanut butter ( I like creamy)
1/2 cup of cashew milk (or nut milk)
1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 cup of almond flour
1/2 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips (I love Lilly’s brand!)
pre-heat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper
in a bowl break down your banana until very small chunks are left
add in your maple syrup, peanut butter, salt, and baking powder
next add in your vanilla and maple syrup
using a fork, mix in your almond flour and your flax meal
lastly, fold in your cocoa powder and chocolate chips
using two teaspoons, scoop your cookies on to a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes until formed
let cool and enjoy!

This past week was the worst week of my life. Without starting this post of really negative, we had a really scary thing happen with our sweet baby dog. She’s been with us for 4.5 years and truly my best friend. She’s all I have and has been my rock. We have moved to California together, Utah, Florida, back to Utah and now Montana with each other.
Last week she started feeling really sick and so we took her to the emergency vet, she spent 3 nights in the doggie hospital and pulled through. All I felt like doing last week was crumbling into a million pieces. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep and Drew and I were just a puddle of fear. Our baby is home with us now. She is resting and recovery and we are just holding her so close to our hearts now that she is back in our arms.
I was restless and started baking. Since I personally gave up refined sugars, I baked these and had some friends try them and let me know how they tasted! For sugar free January this year, I gave up stevia and 0 calorie sweeteners as well, but if you are looking for a refined sugar free cookie, these are your cookie!
These chocolate chip cookies, are ideally sweet, soft and bendy but full of chocolate chips. Let’s get to baking!
There is a trend with me and chocolate cookies. I absolutely love chocolate cookies that are tender and sweet but also really taste the cocoa!
Christmas seems to be the time where you get endless tins of mediocre peppermint bark in varying shapes, thickness and more. I am starting a trend where we give out these cookies instead! They are still full of peppermint and chocolate flavor but will switch up the annual cookie or sweet give!
These cookies are so easy to make, soft on the inside with a brownie like crunch on the outside! The soft peppermint filling in the cookie chunks add a delicious peppermint flavor to the chocolate flavor of the cookie.
I have the fondest memories of thumbprint jam cookies as a kid! My mom would always put them into our lunches for school and my favorite were the raspberry jam! I got the most amazing package from Foodlyn and couldn’t resist remaking these cookies with vegan ingredients and also gluten free!
This was the most delicious jam I have ever tasted! The raspberry has a hint of basil and just coats your body in a hug of delicious! But, I love pears! Like LOVE pears! When I tasted this pear jam I wanted to jump up and down its so amazing! The hint of vanilla bean in the jam adds the most amazing pairing to the shortbread cookies!
One of my all time favorite foods are loukoumathes, a greek honey cinnamon yeasted dough that is fried and then while still pipping hot, rolled in cinnamon and honey. These little pillows of heaven call my name all the time! Since I don’t have a giant pot to fill with bubbling oil to boil my … Read More
