Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl

Who doesn’t love an egg roll?  I can never find egg roll wrappers that don’t contain egg so I made this Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl. It tastes exactly like the filling found in those delectable egg rolls, but without the fried wrappers!  I know typically egg rolls have added meat, so I added the sliced portoblello mushrooms to provide a meaty texture in place of the meat.

If you want to add some extra protein to this stir fry, you can add toasted peanuts or cashews.  Quinoa may be another nice addition.

All the goodness from the inside of the egg roll, but without the fried wrappers! Vegan, gluten free and paleo.

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!
