Peanut Butter Cinnamon Cookies

These cookies are no bake and super easy and very very delish. I love making no bake desserts. You just throw a bunch of ingredients together and you have a healthy sweet. Also, I made them without dates so it doesn't require the use of a food processor. Just a big bowl, a wooden spoon and your hands!

Have these for breakfast, a snack or dessert because they are sweet but also nutritious. They are high in fiber, protein and healthy fats plus lots of vitamins and minerals. Two cookies and a tall glass of soy milk....a perfect treat! As with my previous recipe, I used brown rice syrup as the liquid sweetener. Brown rice syrup isn't low calorie but it supposedly has a very low glycemic index so you can use it when you're trying to avoid or minimize your sugar intake.

1.5 cups of quick cook oats 
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter
2 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tbsp of cinnamon
1/4 cup of brown rice syrup
1/4 cup of chopped walnut
2-3 tbsp of soy milk

Set the milk aside. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl, first with a large spoon and then with your hands. The brown rice syrup is very thick and sticky so using your hands is easier. To make the mixture more like cookie dough, add the milk and mix some more with your hands. Wet your hands so the cookie dough doesn't stick to them as much. Mix so that all the ingredients are evenly distributed. Press onto a large plate and flatten into cookies, using a fork to make the design on top. I made about 10 cookies. Store in the fridge.

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!
