I stumbled upon a vegan bakery the other day and thought I would treat myself to some (which is rare) and support the biz. I paid bucks for 2 small They were SO sweet and left me feeling groggy and tired the next morning. Sugar hangover.
That’s why I wanted to share this recipe with you guys. It’s easy, relatively healthy and really delicious. Better yet there is no sugar added (minus the chocolate chips) and they are very cheap to make.
Play around with the recipe and let me know how you change it. I don’t put exact measurements on most of my recipes because I don’t cook things that need much measuring but hear is a rough measurement of ingredients used:
1.5 cups rolled oats (ground up to make oat flour)
1 cup rolled oats (not ground up)
3 ripe bananas, chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2/3 – 1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
1 flax egg (2 tbsp. flax seeds ground up and mixed with 3 tbsp water)
2 tsp baking soda
juice of 1 lemon (add just before baking)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the flax egg and let sit for a few minutes and put all other ingredients in a large bowl. Mix dry ingredients with flax egg by hand or with mixing spoon, make sure to mash the bananas well. When all the ingredients are mixed, add lemon juice and mix again. Spoon mixture out onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 – 20 mins depending on size and desired doneness!
Be sure to have fun and play around with the ingredients! I love experimenting. Other things you can add are cinnamon, dates, cocoa powder, nut butter or vanilla, you can even remove some of the ingredients I used if they do not work for you or you do not have them on hand. This is a very easy and fun recipe to play around with. The possibilities are endless!
Through this channel I want to show you that eating vegan doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive or limiting. You can make it what you want, but I like to keep it simple, cheap and delicious.
