No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Hemp Cookies

I don't really make a ton of desserts anymore since watching how much carbs I'm consuming but I have relaxed a little bit with it and just make sure I don't consume added sugar. I wanted to make a low carb cookie though for something to snack on as I'm usually running around all day. I try to bring a protein bar or some kind of snack to give me energy and keep my stomach from growling. These turned out delicious and they are no bake!

I'm going to try to post more recipes. I also went back to my old name on social media-Fabulous Vegan Recipes-and I'm in the process of changing my website name but right now it will stay So on social media, my IG and Fb are @fabulousveganrecipes and Twitter is @fabvegrecipes. Onto the recipe!

3/4 cup of oat flour
2 tbsp of coconut flour
1/2 cup of granulated monk fruit sugar
1/2 cup of peanut butter
3 tbsp of hemp seeds
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
Filtered water (add as needed)

Put the cookie ingredients into your food processor and process until it's a cookie consistency. Add the water to keep the dough going but adding too much will turn the dough too watery. The mixture should be cookie dough consistency and able to be formed into a ball. Add more peanut butter if the dough is too crumbly. Form into balls then press on the cookie with a fork making the lines. Store in the fridge.

Alternatives: I wanted to make this a lower carb recipe but I haven't been able to find almond flour that is a decent price. Use almond and coconut flour instead of oat for lower carb cookies but I haven't used almond flour so the consistency may be different. Use any nut or seed butter. Add chia seeds and/or any superfood powder you wish such as maca. Use cocoa powder instead of protein powder.

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!

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!

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.
