Being a dietitian, lots of people assume I have a wealth of original recipes in my back pocket. Although I love helping moms understand nutrition for themselves and their kiddos, complicated recipes just are not my thing. I’m a busy working mama who likes to feed my family healthy meals that are super easy and quick.
What I do love to spend some time on is baking yummy vegan treats to share with friends and family. I have been making this cookie recipe for years and it always goes over very well. It’s one of those, "this is vegan? really?" kind of recipes.
I hope you enjoy it!
