This vegan cookie recipe is very close to another vegan cookie recipe, BUT for several ingredients which make these vegan delights softer!

Vegan Orange Banana Smoothie

Posted by on Sunday, 13 May, 2012

This is the perfect pick me up with good fats, vitamins and minerals. Instead of putting yogurt or milk in, like I do with most of my smoothies, I only added water, but also Coconut Oil. I wanted a little something extra with good fats while adding a little sweetness.

2 Bananas
1 Orange
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup H2O
4 Ice cubes

Toss all this into your blender and in, oh, about 30 seconds you will have some heavenly bliss. Yummm.

1.5lb Buttermilk Bulgar Bread Machine Recipe

Posted by on Monday, 2 May, 2011

Bread machines are a beautiful thing. Since I’ve discovered this new kitchen toy, I haven’t bought bread. I like the simple and natural ingredients.

This high fiber bread has 34grams of fiber total and tastes delicious as a sandwich bread or with almond butter and jam. The addition of the bulgar makes it look a little different and lends a nutty texture.

1.25 cups water
1.25 tsp salt
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp organic coconut oil
1.5 cups stone ground whole wheat flour
1.5 cups bread flour
2/3 cup medium grind organic bulgar
1/3 cup buttermilk powder
1.25 tsp instant … Read the rest

Chocolate Chip Cookies — Butter Free

Posted by on Sunday, 28 November, 2010

It was my task to make cookies for a girls pajama party.  You know the kind where you and your girlfriends lounge around in jammies and pig out on ice cream, cookies and cake.  Like usual, I waited until the last minute to bake these bad boys.  As I’m throwing in some ingredients I realized I was out of butter.   Whoops!  So I changed up my recipe and hoped for the best.  When all was said and done, they tasted great!

Here you go:

2 1/4 Cups of all purpose flour
2 organic free range eggs
1 Cup Organic Extra Read the rest
