Roasted chicken is pretty good but you could bake it to be better

Turkey Bacon and grilled asparagus cooked in olive oil.

Healthy Gluten Free Lemon Sugar Cookies (made sugar free & low fat)

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Cookies
  • Serving Size: 1 Cookie
  • Calories per serving: 75
  • Fat per serving: .8g

 

Ingredients

  • 136g (1 cup) Sweet White Sorghum Flour
  • 2 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • one 15oz can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed well (weighed 278g after rinsing)
  • 123g (1/2 cup) Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 144g (3/4 cup) Organic Stevia Mix**
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Butter Extract
  • 1 heaping tbs Organic Lemon Zest (don’t pack it)
  • Natural Yellow Food Coloring (I used ~1/2 tsp of India Tree’s food coloring, just enough to make the dough yellow)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line two cookie sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sorghum flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a blender or food processor, puree the beans, applesauce, almond milk and stevia until completely smooth.
  4. Scoop the puree into a large bowl (scrape out every last bit!). Whisk in the vanilla extract, butter extract, lemon zest and food coloring.
  5. Dump the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and whisk together. The dough should be more like a muffin batter… but really kind of like mashed potatoes. This is normal!
  6. Scoop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheets and tap them into cookies with clean fingers. Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until the center of the cookies indent just barely when you tap them.
  7. Let the cookies cool slightly, then serve immediately! If not serving right away, store the cookies in an airtight container.

Notes

**I bought a bag of Earth’s Pride Organics Organic Stevia at BJ’s Wholesale. It’s a mix of Erythritol and Stevia Extract (both organic and non-GMO) and is 2x as sweet as sugar so sugar will not substitute. An alternative is Truvia spoonable.

This recipe is: sugar free, low fat, eggless, gluten free, vegan!

Always mixed feelings coming home after a vacation..

Had a great time in Canada, always miss it when I’m not there.. But it’s nice to be back too, started the day making almond milk and I finished it with a great full body workout!

Felt like gained 10 lbs but I actually lost 3.. Thank you active lifestyle, healthy food and cottage workouts ;)

Have a good night everyone!

What are your thoughts on raw till four as opposed to eating fully raw, what's better?

I think this is something the vegan community needs to stop fighting over. What matters to me is that people are following a vegan lifestyle, PERIOD. I WILL say yes, the fully raw diet is great if that’s what you’re into. I will also say raw till 4 is great as well. For me? I personally would say I am into the raw till 4 concept, but I also really don’t think it’s a crime to eat cooked food before 4 as well. The real issue is animal cruelty and I think that we need to focus more on that than to worry about whether or not people are eating cooked or raw vegan food. Who cares? We should all be on the same mission which is to spread awareness about animal cruelty and follow a cruelty-free life style. :)
