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!

Healthy Trail Mix Cookies

The other day I had some ripe bananas to use up so I created these Healthy Trail Mix Cookies.  These cookies easy to make and they are filled with good for you ingredients!  They also happen to be nut free IF YOU USE ANOTHER MILK so they are perfect for school lunchboxes.  It’s like eating granola in cookie form. They would be great to take on hikes too.

From start to finish, these cookies are done in under 25 minutes!  Can’t beat that, right? In addition to being nut free, these healthy cookies are also vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free.  Yay!  They make the perfect afternoon snack.

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!

We are in full holiday baking season now.  So it’s the perfect time for me to share these Coconut Vanilla Meltaway Cookies.  They are divine and simply melt in your mouth.  One of the best things about this recipe is that it only calls for 4 simple ingredients!

I used REBBL Vanilla Spice Protein Coconut Milk  for this recipe. I love that the protein is sourced from peas, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.  Most protein drinks contain processed ingredients.  Not only are REBBL drinks delicious, but they contain none of the bad stuff.  That’s right, REBBL drinks are organic, fair trade, made from real ingredients and full of super herbs like ashwagandha, reishi and maca root.

I just had one right before I started this post and they are DELICIOUS! If you don’t have pecans on hand, I believe any other nut should work in their place.  The recipe is very versatile.

Soft Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Pamela’s, but all opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love.

If you love gingerbread cookies, you have to try these Soft-Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies!  They are perfect for holidays and very easy to make.  I used Pamela’s grain and gluten-free nut flour blend.

One thing I really love about this nut flour blend is that there are no added ingredients.  Typically, gluten free flours often contain xanthan gum or guar gum.  Pamela’s has neither.  The only ingredients in this flour blend are: almond flour, coconut flour, pecan flour and walnut flour.
