Vegan Chocolate Chunk Lactation Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Lactation Cookies {vegan}

We had a new little person join our extended family recently! My younger brother became a daddy for the first time, which makes me the doting aunt, and I am dying to meet her, but alas, they live interstate. So, we made up a care package, filled with the cutest little baby girl clothes, a…

Easy 30-minute Choc Chip Cookie Bars {vegan, gf}

First up, I can’t lay claim to this recipe; at least not to the original. That belongs to another member of the ‘Aquafaba (Vegan Meringues – Hits and Misses)’ group on Facebook. She posted a photo of some very wholesome looking biscuits, but it was the mix of gluten-free flours that got me hooked. I…

Raw Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Cookies

Deprivation. Nasty little word, that. None of us like to feel deprived. If it feels like a deprivation, we will resist, and this is the reason diets don’t work. If we see clean eating as a punishment, we are far less likely to stick with it. Like many have said before, the only way to…

And we got invited. But it’s not like we live in the same state,…

Orange, Oat and Cardamom Cookies {aka The Perfect Dunking Biscuit}

Baby, it’s cold outside! A huge storm came through the other night and threatened to tear the roof off! We had toys still outside, and clothes on the washing line, and I was convinced nothing would be there in the morning. Thankfully, I was wrong. The air is washed clean and I can even see some…

Chocolate Oatmeal No-bake Cookies

Let’s get one thing straight. These cookies are healthy. What could be healthier than a combination of dark chocolate, oats, coconut oil, shredded coconut and marshmallows… oh, yeah… them…. sugar-laden confectionary… Oh, well, these marshmallows didn’t have any artificial colours or flavours, so they’ll do. My tastebuds have carried memories of these for a good many…
