Vegan Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Last week on Facebook, I posted an Instagram photo of healthy cookies my mom made and my friends burst into an uproar demanding I make a Vivography post, recipe and all, to share.

Because they’re so easy to make and because I really wanted more, I made a batch and took pictures for you all to enjoy – and make your own batches!

Vegan Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients
3 ripe bananas
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Jif whipped chocolate PB)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used original)
1 tsp vanilla extract
(Makes 30, apparently. Mine were huge and I made ~16)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash bananas in a large bowl, then stir in remaining ingredients. Let batter stand for approximately 20 minutes, then drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.

Freezing Directions
If you want to preserve them for later baking, cool completely, then place cookies in a freezer bag. Seal, label, and freeze.

Today’s My Birthday and I’m Sharing Flowers with You

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve taken A LOT of pictures of flowers this year.

I ain’t mad. There’s quite a few in my large collection of floral photographs that I think I will swap out in our pictures frames. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do.

Today is also my birthday, so happy birthday to me!

Bake Yo Grapefruits!

BAKED GRAPEFRUIT IS SUPER MEGA DELICIOUS.

There. I said it.

If  it sounds weird, then frankly my dear, you need to broaden your palette horizons. Truly, baked grapefruit is hella delish. The baking process caramelizes the grapefruits and once cooled, makes them super easy to peel away from their rinds. I highly recommend you try this at home.
