Lately I’ve been exploring minimalist concepts. One, because I find that they are the most approachable, secondly, because at nearly 34 weeks, I just don’t have the energy.
At about 30 weeks I could absolutely see a shift in my energy levels, which I embrace. I have to believe it’s serendipitous as it’s your body telling you that delivery is near, the baby is coming, slow down, and get all the rest you need now lol. Needless to say, I’ve been sleeping 9 hours and discovering new effortless eats!!
When it comes to oats, I have a love hate relationship with them. I love them, so much I used to eat them on the daily back in circa 2004/5. However, I had them so much, I took a much needed break and just found that unless I was hitting the gym right away, it was just too much of a carb load and weighed me down. Today I use them as a flourless binder in veggie burgers, but that was the extent of it.
Once I found that oats can make a seamless vegan waffle, I returned to my oat loving days, and came up with these fab Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies!!
What’s fab about these cookies, is everything. They are quick, easy, affordable, packed with fiber and protein making them more filling, they can easily be made in bulk, are perf for any season, are gluten free with the use of gluten free oats, hold together, packed with chocolate chips, and you could never tell there is even oats in them! lol
If you love a fab gluten free option or just a healthier alternative to the standard cookie, you’re going to love these new vegan Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!
