Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies

So I changed the font on some of my posts and it's such a mess. This morning I couldn't change the font size so I had to copy the blog post into notepad and then paste back into my blog. I guess I will stick to Times Roman font that is a decent size so people can actually read my posts! Happy Friday all! I just went food shopping, bought some coffee for tomorrow's coffee smoothie that I'm obsessed with and made some raw desserts that are now in the freezer. My cousin is patiently helping me use my new camera so I hope to have some new awesome photos of said desserts tomorrow when the natural light comes into my windows.

It is a warmish night here in New York City, I just got done laundry and I'm catching up on a whole bunch of blogging. I wrote out a new recipe on Wednesday and just published a new one (see the pasta dish below) but I want to amp up the recipes a tiny bit and post maybe one more day a week than I am right now. Sometimes during the week time gets away from me or I'm at a loss as to what recipe to work definitely shout out what recipes you would like to see! Head to my Facebook page to get updates and links to past and new recipes.

Just a little bit about a dream of mine....I want to publish a cookbook of raw dessert recipes. Well, they are not all technically raw but they are pretty much all no bake desserts that I love and cherish and want to share with you all. I published an ebook of recipes back in December of 2013 (you can buy that here for just $4.99) and I would love to do it again, only this time, I want to actually hold my book in my hand. Once I figure out how to use my camera with ease (right now I'm using my phone camera), I plan on making and photographing all my recipes and finding someone to publish my cookbook! Send me positive vibes. I plan on meditating on this 😃

These cookies came to fruition when I wanted something sweet and warm and comforting the other day. The cookie dough is delicious enough to eat by itself and I ate plenty of it but I ultimately decided to bake these and they didn't disappoint. I had some for breakfast on Wednesday morning with some soy milk and it was a satisfying breakfast for sure. You can really taste the cinnamon, I would describe these as snickerdoodle cookies with a hint of pumpkin. I didn't roll them in cinnamon instead opting to just sprinkle cinnamon on top of them but you can roll them in all the cinnamon you wish. Some notes will be after the recipe.

1 1/2 cups of oat flour
3/4 cup of coconut sugar
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
2 tbsp of vanilla soy milk
1 tbsp of cinnamon 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the flour, sugar and cinnamon in one bowl and then add the rest of the wet ingredients. Mix well until all the ingredients are blended. Form into balls and place on a non stick cookie sheet. Sprinkle some more cinnamon on top of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. The cookies will end up to be soft, tiny and super cinnamon and sugary!

Notes: you can use Earth Balance vegan butter instead of the coconut oil. You can use applesauce instead of the pumpkin or two small mashed bananas. If your milk is flavored and already sweet, use 1/2 cup of coconut sugar. Oat flour is just rolled oats blended in the food processor for a few minutes. Use maple syrup instead of the coconut sugar but cut out the milk. You can add chocolate chips, coconut flakes, chia seeds etc etc.

Also, I got one photo of these cookies because I made them at night and couldn't get a decent indoor photo. Then I scarfed them the next day before I could get a few more photos. Can you tell my weakness is sweets??

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!

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.

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!
