This is the first recipe I’ve made for cookies since I began practicing mindful eating, and I am quite pleased with how they turned out!

Servings: Cookies
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine dates & milk alternative in a high-power blender, and blend until it has a uniform consistency.
  3. Pour all ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. If the dough is too moist, add oats; if it is too dry, add a bit of water.
  4. Scoop out cookies (I used a melon-baller) and lay them on a wax-paper covered baking sheet. I went just about 2" each, they won't really expand so they can be very close together.
  5. Bake each sheet for 10-14 minutes (12 minutes at 1-mile elevation).
  6. Let stand 10 minutes to cool, then enjoy with your friends & family.

Banana Pancakes

 

This was another off-the-top, what’s around recipe I made. Mostly just bananas & flour, the pancakes themselves don’t use any kind of sweetener. Using banana helps keep the pancakes a great mix of fluffy, dense, and sweet-but-not-too-sweet.
