Walnut Chia Seed Cookies (No Flour)

Last night I was thinking a lot about baking, which I haven't done in ages but I've been in the mood to make an awesome blueberry muffin. Since I didn't have the ingredients for these, I made these cookies out of chickpeas and other natural ingredients. I added walnuts, chia seeds and oats to punch them up with more fiber and omegas. Yum...these are good and make a great snack with your cup of tea. This recipe was floating around fb and pinterest for a while a few months ago.

1 can of garbanzo beans
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp of peanut butter
1 tsp of baking powder
1/4 cup of maple syrup or agave
2 tsp of vanilla extract
A pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup of walnuts
2 tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 cup of oats

Put everything in your blender except the walnuts, oats and chia seeds. Blend well. Scoop the cookie dough out of your blender into a bowl and add the oats, walnuts and chia seeds. Mix them into the cookie dough. Form into cookies on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees

The cookies don't rise or change that much when they're in the oven. They end up chewy and full of flavor. You can add dairy free chocolate chips for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe. Add anything else you want. Enjoy!

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!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
