Chocolate Coconut Quinoa Cookies

I have a new no-bake cookie for you today. These Chocolate Coconut Quinoa Cookies are delicious. They are vegan and naturally gluten-free.  You only need a few simple ingredients and there is no food processor needed!

I think these cookies are healthy enough for breakfast too.  The quinoa flakes and nut butter add a nice amount of fat and protein, keeping you full for a while.  If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can use quick oats instead.

This recipe is also easy to make nut free by using sunflower butter.  I imagine it should work out just fine.  These healthy cookies literally took 5 minutes to whip together too!

Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup

I had some cabbage I needed to use up, so I decided to make this Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup.  It was very easy and came out great!  The best part is it only calls for simple ingredients you probably already have on hand!  This healthy soup is made in the slow cooker so it can cook even when you leave the house!

The other day when I sent Marcus to the store to get some diced tomatoes, he accidentally bought tomato sauce.  This soup was the perfect use for that sauce.  Plus, the house smelled so good when this was cooking!

This soup recipe makes a ton, but it freezes great.  I like to freeze it in serving sized containers so I can just grab and defrost what I need.  If you wanted to bump up the protein in this recipe, I think adding chickpeas or white beans would be good.

Another way to punch up the flavor in these cookies is to add a little cinnamon.  I am definitely trying that with the next batch!
