4 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies

We are about to go on vacation and I needed to use up some bananas.  So I made these 4 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies.  These were a cinch to make!  Less than 20 minutes.  I added chocolate chips to mine, but that is totally optional.  I can see raisins also working well in this recipe.  These cookies are healthy enough for breakfast! :)

Banana Coconut Cookies - My Whole Food Life

This recipe is super easy.  Vegan, gluten free and grain free.  I used quinoa flakes, so there is a nice protein boost in here as well. If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can always use quick oats in place of them.  These cookies freeze great, so make a big batch and freeze some for busy mornings.

Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir fries are a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge.  This Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry comes together very quickly.  I always keep some cooked grains or quinoa in the fridge to add to meals like this.  This quinoa stir fry recipe is very versatile.  Just use it as a base to add whatever veggies you like.  I happened to have a couple orange peppers sitting around, so that was my starting point.  I also love broccoli in my stir fries, so I made sure to add it.

Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

I just love making slow cooker recipes.  This new slow cooker recipe I have for you today is Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers.  I already have one stuffed pepper recipe on my blog, but I wanted to do this one in the slow cooker.  I used quinoa for the stuffing, but you could also use rice if you prefer.  Hard to make these stuffed peppers look good in a photo, but I promise you they are delicious!

I made the quinoa separately before adding it to the slow cooker.  This recipe is very easy and makes a lot, so you will have easy dinners all week long.  I used my dairy free cheese sauce in this recipe.  I also think my pizza cheese sauce would be good in this recipe.   I hope you enjoy this stuffed pepper recipe as much as we did!
