Snickerdoodle cookies (vegan)

homemade healthy snicker doodle cookies

Snickerdoodle cookies have recently become one of my favourite cookies 🙂 I got inspired by this recipe and made some changes to it. They came out great!

I’ve never heard about creme of tartar before and assumed it was some kind of creme. Surprisingly, creme of tartar is a white powder that is being used in many cakes/desserts for texture. You can for example add it in egg whites when whipping them stiff in order to get the right texture. (Hope that made some sense). Creme of tartar can be found in the spice aisle in most grocery stores, amazon or iherb.

Note:
You can substitute the oat flour with almond flour by using only almond flour.

This recipe is gluten free if you use certified gluten free oat flour.

You don’t necessarily need to drizzle sugar on top of the cookies, I thought they were sweet enough without it. I made some with sugar on top and some without.

Applesauce can be left out if you don’t have any handy, but it makes the cookies a bit more moist.

Maple syrup can be replaced with honey, coconut sugar or other sweetener.

Coconut oil can also be replaced by other oil or butter.

Healthy Cake in a mug

A perfect little cake for valentines day! It only takes about 5 minutes to make and you can either cook it in the microwave for 2 min or in the oven for 15 min. There’s no gluten, eggs or refined sugar in them. I cooked mine in the oven, they came out perfect and taste so good! This recipe makes two mug cakes.

What you need:
8 tablespoons almond flour
1 banana, lightly mashed
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon maple or agave syrup
1 serving or 16 grams / 0.56 oz protein powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 tbs cocoa
40 g / 1.41 oz dark chocolate, chopped
a pinch of salt (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F / 175 ˚C (if you’re using the oven). Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon and add it into 2 mugs or another heat proof dish. If you wish to cook it in the microwave, cook it on full speed for about 3 minutes.  Let it cool on a cooling rack and enjoy 🙂

Note:
You can use any flour you like, such as whole wheat flour, spelt flour etc. I prefer almond flour.

I used vanilla flavoured, whey protein powder from Whole foods, but you can use whatever protein powder you prefer. You can also leave it out and just substitute it with 2 more tablespoons of almond flour.
