Fresh garlic and cilantro are infused into the dough, cooked over a piping hot skillet on the stove, placed over the gas flame for a few seconds and then brushed with optional oil, garlic and cilantro for one heck of a flatbread experience.
Hi beautiful friends! We are going to make a gorgeous cake today on the Artistic Vegan Show #16. Moist chocolate cake with chocolate chips inside makes our base, covered with a chocolate ganache.
You know what I love? A hot warm biscuit right out of the oven. Don't you? Southern biscuits are made with healthy alternatives to the original yet are still so soft you can pull them apart, slice them easily, spread them with jam or top them with gravy.
Bring your meal to the next level with homemade biscuits. These biscuits are incredibly simple to make, they roll out easily, press into a circular shape with the lid of a mason jar and take less than 10 minutes to bake. We served ours with soup and loved them! Place them in a basket wrapped in a towel and serve warm, soft biscuits with your next meal. These would be great for the holidays and Thanksgiving coming up. Plus, they are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and yeast-free for a completely plant-based whole-food recipe you can feel good about eating and sharing with others.
Simple Homemade Spaghetti Sauce made easily in your blender! This meal is absolutely delicious! The first time I made it we both rushed back for seconds.
Somethings in life are too good not to share. These comforting cookies, are one of those things. Sweet, satisfying, soft, with a slight chew, moist but not too moist. They create perfect, inviting, palm-sized, BIG, beautiful cookies.
These scratched my itch, but like a mosquito bite once you scratch it sometimes it makes it worse and you scratch more, in this case I had one cookie, then a half of one later and the other half shortly thereafter. They are so good!! "Mmm, mmm, mmm" says my husband. I thought these would be a great post to share for Father's Day. Who doesn't love a cookie? Plus, no soaking, refrigerating, just mix, bake, consume, repeat.
"Damn, I gotta have the other half of that cookie" - Gerald. Haha!!
Plus, they are healthy. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of butter vs. 1 cup of sweet potato puree, 1 1/2 cups of sugar vs. 2 tbsp. of agave syrup, plus 1 egg and 1 egg yolk vs. flax meal and water. Say what? I used amaranth flour so they are busting with protein! You can have one after you work out with 12.4 grams of protein a cookie. ;) Get your cookie on with these amazing Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! Love, Christa

Tips for Making it Easy:
Some of the fondest memories of my grandma include her homemade zucchini bread. I had a couple extra zucchinis lying around and decided to make a loaf. I made a unique version that is free of gluten, dairy, oil and even sugar! I couldn't believe most zucchini bread recipes call for 1 cup of sugar, I always thought it was healthy since it had the word zucchini in it. Now, it really is healthy as cranberries or raisins are used instead of refined sugar to naturally sweeten the loaf. The results are better than I hoped for, it naturally puffs up while baking and then gets a nice golden crust. The inside was baked through and through. My husband and I found it extremely hard not to eat more than a serving, especially knowing how good it is for you. You are going to love this recipe!
1 Cup Packed Shredded Zucchini
1 Cup Cranberries or Raisins

1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
6 Tbsp Aquafaba
1/4 Cup Mashed Ripe Banana
1 tsp Vanilla
2 cup All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
