Muffin Meals

No, these meals won't be muffins but Muffin is one of my nicknames. Besides, it sounds cute! After viewing the Vegan Lunchbox site, religiously, my Husband wants me to post my own menu. I will try to post one meal each day. I hope I inspire people to have creative and healthy home cooked meals. I think that even if you aren't a vegetarian, you'll like the meals I present. I do feature dairy products and eggs in my food from time to time, but will try my best to present vegan dishes as well.

Vegan Cookies!

Today we brought QT Pi, the family dog, home from the veterinarian. She is busy sleeping...However, running errands and getting her, plus a few other things made for a late lunch, leftover Olive Garden takeout, and hence, just a fend for yourself dinner. So, I felt really bad of the fact that I haven't been able to post a picture in the past couple of days. So, since DH has been BEGGING for "healthy cookies" as he calls them, I decided to give you a picture of them. Granted, its not a glamourous shot, but you can get a good idea. This recipe was given to me by a good friend. THANKS KIM!
I'll even post the recipe tonight!

Maple Walnut Cookies
Mix together:
2 1/2 c. chopped walnuts (I ground them up finer, so they resembled a coarse meal.)
2/3 c. ww pastry flour
1/3 c. carob chips
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c. flaxseed
Add in:
1/2 c. + 2T Maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla

Bake 350* on parchment paper for 10-15 min.

    I wrinled my nose at these when told about them, but when I got a taste, WOW! That impression certainly changed!!! They are very good and you would never know they are "healthy" if you weren't told!

    Yummy!
