I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season so far and are enjoying yourself wherever you may be! My husbands birthday is 2 days before Christmas so I tend to be more focused on his big day than on the holidays. I ensured he was pampered all day long. We enjoyed a beautiful hike together with the most beautiful views. It was very nice to get in nature and work some different muscles that hadn't been used in a while. :)
We started his big day with Sweet Potato Lattes and a Smoothie Bowl!
It was a strawberry, banana, pineapple smoothie infused with beet powder, served with fresh mango and cranberries on top. He said it was better than cake. Success!
We enjoyed "cheese" and crackers on the trails and it was so special, what a treat for vegans. The recipe is featured in my new e-Book that you get upon subscribing!! :)
When I was growing up it was tradition that we'd get whatever our heart desired for our birthdays for dinner and dessert. I asked my husband what he would like and he asked for a vegan omelet! I responded "with home fries and a biscuit with jam?" He smiled and said yes! I knew I was up for a challenge but thankfully Richa with VeganRicha.com came to the rescue. If your an omelet lover like my husband then you must try her incredible recipe, click HERE. It came out PERFECTLY! My husband declared it was the best one I've made yet and raved about how good it was. I HIGHLY recommend her inventive recipe. The home-fries recipe can be found HERE and the gluten-free nice and easy biscuit recipe HERE. The meal can be yours too!!! :) We ended the day with a special cheesecake creation that I'll gladly share soon.
Now, back to the sweet, warm, soft, moist cookies!
Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies that are out of this world, hard to stop at two, unbelievably good cookies!
We shared them with our friends on Christmas Eve and I was asked "YOU made these??" I proudly said yes! Knowing they're gluten-free, vegan, refined-sugar-free and oil-free!!! Healthy cookies that taste like your having a guilty treat but wait - no guilt here!! Only a couple cookies remained when we left and everyone raved about them even asking for the recipe. Fortunately I modified a recipe of mine so I was able to easily share on the spot. So here it is!!
Makes 24 cookies
*TIP: My favorite way to make sweet potatoes is to peel, cut and steam for about 20-25 minutes until soft and then proceed to blend in the blender or food processor until nice and creamy. Proceed to use or store in the fridge or freezer for future recipes.
