Cookie Sandwiches

I'm all about cookie sandwiches ever since I tried one at Sweet Freedom Bakery (www.sweetfreedombakery.com).  So, I decided to make cookie sandwiches at home and they turned out fabulously.

Cookies
3/4 cup of vegan butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of agave nectar (or vegan granulated sugar)
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup of almond (or soy) milk
1 cup of oats
2 tsp of baking powder
chocolate chips (optional)

Combine the butter, sugar, vanilla and agave nectar, mix well, add the milk, stir then add the flour, baking powder and oats. The mix will be thick. Scoop the mix onto the cookies sheets in small to medium portions so that the cookies aren't huge. Bake at 350 degrees until the middle of the cookie is done. Cool on a cookie rack. Match up cookies in pairs based on their size.

Icing:

vegan butter
confectioner sugar
almond milk

Scoop some vegan butter and sugar in a bowl and stir. Stir in a little bit of the milk. You will have to keep playing with all the ingredients to make the icing the way you like it. I like thick icing so I add more sugar and very little milk. After the cookies are totally cool, spread the icing on a cookie then put another cookie on top.     

These are so good!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
