Dairy-Free Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies - NO OIL

Dairy-Free Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies - NO OIL

I really love simple recipes that have just a few ingredients that come together in a small time frame. Of course, when the outcome is something tasty, it makes the simplicity easier to be appreciated and enjoyed. This is the case for some dairy-free (vegan friendly!) chocolate banana oatmeal cookies. These are great and can be made without oil by using an oil substitute - the bananas actually serve this purpose. 

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins with Chocolate Chips - NO DAIRY, NO OIL

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins with Chocolate Chips - NO DAIRY, NO OIL

One of my favorite muffin recipes is this easy to prepare and very healthy snack. What I really love outside of the moist and sweet taste is the ability to prepare many muffins early in the week, store in the fridge, and eat as needed generally as little snacks. They are easy to take along to work at my contracting jobs, and I imagine you could find a similar benefit. 

Easy Saute Vegetables Recipe - NO OIL

Easy Saute Vegetables Recipe - NO OIL

This is one of the easiest saute vegetables recipes you will come across. While a traditional "saute" involves the use of oils - I will show you an alternative for making a meal that tastes great without the added fatty oils. It's worth noting that this is a meal that can be made in large quantities and consumed throughout the week if you have a busy lifestyle - and a large amount can be made for a small amount of money as well (the quantity in the photo is for less than $5). 

Oil-Free Dairy-Free Zucchini Muffins

Oil-Free Dairy-Free Zucchini Muffins

You should just taste these mouth watering zucchini muffins. They really hit the spot, and are good for you too! By being oil and dairy free, they enable you to make better health-conscious decisions. The prep to bake these is fairly simple and straightforward, the majority of the cook time will be spent just waiting for them to finish. They are great right out of the oven, and of course if you want to save them for later, will taste great then too!

Homemade Easy Fat Free Whole Wheat Tortillas - NO OIL

Homemade Easy Fat Free Whole Wheat Tortillas - NO OIL

Tortillas are an excellent way to add variety to the food you are eating. Though a part of the Standard American Diet, meat tacos were always enjoyed by my stomach because of the ability to make them in so many different ways. Adding chicken, steak, beef, fish and shrimp, among many fruit, veggie, and condiment variations allowed me to keep my lunch and dinners fresh. Of course, a whole foods, plant based lifestyle does not allow me to use all the greasy oils, dairy products, and meats. BUT, that doesn't mean we can't have a healthy, vegan alternative that provides us the same opportunity for variety!

This Fat Free Whole Wheat Tortilla Recipe provides you with 10-12 servings. You can adjust to make more or less depending on your need.
