My recipe is not only healthier than the original, it is also vegan.  Yay!  And really, who doesn’t like a no bake cookie?  You can literally whip these delectable cookies up in just a matter of minutes.

White Chocolate Banana Cookies

We are about to head to Disney World for vacation, and I am trying to use up what I have on hand.  That’s how these White Chocolate Banana Cookies came about. I had some leftover vegan white chocolate chips from my White Chocolate Raspberry Squares, so I thought this was a perfect way to use them up.  After all, white chocolate and banana go so well together!  If you can’t find vegan white chocolate chips, you can most definitely use regular chocolate chips instead.  Macadamia nuts may also by another yummy option.  The best part about this recipe is it has just 4 simple ingredients!

These cookies are vegan, gluten free and healthy enough for breakfast!  The optional add ins are endless.  I think some shredded coconut would be delish in here personally.  Then again, I love all things coconut.

Flourless Pumpkin Muffins (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Flourless Pumpkin Muffins. The other day I made some Flourless Apple Muffins.  They came out really well.  As soon as I made them, I knew I wanted to make a pumpkin version.  So I am bringing you these flourless healthy muffins.

They came out totally delicious.  No flour and no refined sugar.  I added some cranberries for a little burst of flavor.  You can also add chocolate chips or raisins if you prefer. I also think pecans would be a nice addition.  I didn’t add them because my baby girl is allergic.
