Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Cookies

I saw this recipe on Facebook and I veganized it. These cookies are low carb but they are so fudgy and delicious, it's easy to not miss the flour. The sweetness is due to monk fruit sugar and chocolate chips but they are also high in healthy fat. Instead of an egg, I used Greek style plant-based yogurt and it worked so so well. If you are strict keto, get keto chocolate chips. If you just want to be lower sugar, use any dark, non dairy chocolate chips you wish.

I bought the Daiya brand of greek style yogurt and I don't love it. However, instead of returning it to the store, I decided to use the yogurt in a recipe since it's thick and creamy. Great idea because these cookies ended up tasting delish!

1 cup of peanut butter or any nut butter
6 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup of granulated monk fruit sugar
1/4 of high cacao or sugar free vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup of unsweetened vegan yogurt
1/4 cup of unsweetened non dairy milk
Optional: walnuts, sunflower seeds, chia seeds

Mix everything together by hand until it's cookie dough consistency. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Press the balls down into cookie shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Store in an airtight container. These end up being soft and chewy and the chocolate chips make them fudgy. Add as many chocolate chips as you wish!

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.
