I don’t know about you but cookie dough bites and a good movie with popcorn are my go-to choices. I’ve created with my friends at EatPastry these fun bite-sized cookie dough bites with their non-GMO, vegan, egg and dairy free cookie dough. It’s super convenient if you are looking for some quick homemade cookies at home. Using the dough to create other favorite indulgent treats is the perfect way to be creative. Feel free to give this recipe a try, they sell at Whole Foods and other locations, which you can search for on their site.
Yields 20-25 cookie dough bites
1 tub eatpastry cookie dough
1 cup chocolate chips of choice
3-4 Tbsp. coconut oil or plant-based butter
Coarse rock salt, to garnish (optional)
Using a 1/4 tsp., scoop the dough into small rounds and set onto a parchment lined baking sheeted.
Place into the freezer until they are semi frozen, roughly 20-25 minutes.
In a glass bowl, add chocolate and coconut oil.
Bring a sauce pot filled a quarter of the way with water to a simmer. Place the glass bowl on top and melt chocolate until smooth, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
Take the cookie dough bites out of the freezer and dip them into the chocolate and place back onto the baking sheet.
Place in the refrigerator until chocolate sets, roughly 30 minutes.
Serve as a snack or on top of ice cream.
Chef’s tip: These can be kept in the fridge for up to a week.
I know what you are thinking, “these cookies are unbearable to look at without a taste”.. Id have to agree myself! In the spirit of giving this holiday season my good friend shared her spiced polar bear cookies with me, so I wanted to share my plant based rendition of her famous cookie with you all. Slightly dusted with powdered sugar and finished with chocolate chips and a red hot candy, this fun recipe is perfect for any snow day or even rainy day.
Growing up, I have always had a sweet tooth for sugary treats. As I’ve gotten older my taste buds want something more! The earthy undertones of the tea mixed together with the sweet vanilla makes for a subtle but irresistible flavor combination. Interesting fact about these cookies, the tea acts as a natural food dye so these delicious treats are even healthier than they look!
Feast your eyes on this perfect savory Sunday brunch meal, featuring this eggless Tofu Scramble. By simply draining the tofu and crumbling it apart, you are able to recreate a classic breakfast spin that will satisfy anyone’s palate in less than 10 minutes. I make this all the time because it’s a basic recipe that only uses a handful of ingredients. In addition, you can really add whatever ingredients you’d like, just as if it were a regular scramble. Be sure to try this out, it’s a healthier version with lower the fat content and cholesterol-free. You really can’t say more than – yum!
When I was a kid growing up, I couldn’t wait for my grandmother to bring these fresh-piping hot latkes out of the kitchen. This classic style potato latke is unbearably hard to resist with that crispy, salty and oh so fluffy center! Just add a spoonful of homemade applesauce on top and you’ll be pleasantly delighted by those traditional latke flavors melding in your mouth.
Using a box grater, shred the potatoes and onion together. Using a towel or napkin, squeeze out all of the water and set the drained potato and onion into a bowl.
Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix until well combined.
In a skillet, add oil and set to medium-high heat. Start with 1/4 cup and if you need more oil, you can. Add a spoonful of the mixture until pan is filled and cook for 2-3 minutes or until each side is brown and crispy. Flip and brown the other side an additional 2-3 minutes.
Repeat until potato mixture is all gone.
Serve warm with choice of apple sauce of sour cream.
Chef’s tip: Don’t forget to add a spoonful of sour cream on top of these if you’d like as well!
