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.
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 3 cups of old fashioned oats
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 cups almond or soymilk
- 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
3 Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Gently stir in blueberries.
4 Place in a 9x13 ungreased pan. Bake at 350° degrees for 35 minutes.
We like to eat this for breakfast in a large bowl drizzled with almond milk and maple syrup!
This is really simple! Just mix the ingredients together the night before you plan to eat, then let the mixture sit in your fridge overnight. Come morning, you will find the result is a yummy and creamy pumpkin treat perfect for breakfast. Full of nutrition and healthy fuel to get your body jump started for the day! This makes enough for my wife and I to have an extra generous bowl each in the morning!
