Toight we are having cookies for dinner. Well, we are having a little leftover pressed salad, but mostly cookies.
Lately I have been checking out and renewing (multiple times) the new vegan cookbooks at the library. Since we have been vegan now for over a month, we have had done a lot of research on new ways to eat veggies, grains and beans. I have resorted to making a weekly menu and shopping once a week for that menu. But, as crazy at it may sound, it is helping me try out new recipes and expand my knowledge of vegan cooking. I am wasting less food since I have a plan in the beginning of the week. But after eating so healthy during the week we are still splurging on Saturday nights.
Here are my favorite books so far.
The Teff Chocolate Chip cookies were our cheat meal this weekend, I highly recommend trying them out. And they are SUPER easy.
- 1 1/2 cups ivory or dark teff flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (we used the grain sweetened ones)
Preheat the oven to 350 and line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix the dry ingredients. Mix the peanut butter and maple syrup together until smooth. Add dry to wet ingredients and mix (do not overmix). Add chocolate chips and bake for 13 minutes and no more! Thank you, Terry Walters for your book, I am going to finally get it soon and return the other to the library before I get too many food stains on it!
