Baking Without Sugar: You Could Be Eating Oatmeal Cookies In 15 Minutes
I’m sorry, Taylor Swift’s new album is out today, and I simply don’t have time to blog.
Okay fine. I’ll share this one thing, but then I’m going right back to lyric pondering.
These oatmeal cookies are my go-to when I’m dying for something sweet and carby, but don’t feel like going through the whole baking ordeal. And I’ll call them for what they are…this isn’t a recipe that’s going to wow you, but considering it requires as few as 3 ingredients, and no more than 15 minutes (which is about my max tolerance when I’m ravaging for something sweet), I’m pretty darn happy with ’em.
They don’t crisp up like your typical cookie. It’s more like eating a bowl of oatmeal on-the-go. I don’t know about you, but I like when I can get away with eating “dessert” for breakfast.
Mix up your mix-ins to keep them interesting and share them on Insta with #bakingwithoutsugar.
There are many different versions of this recipe out there, so thank you to all who contributed!
Okay, cookie in hand, now cue the T. Swift.
Kristie’s Gut Healing Comments: The meal ideas that I post align with what I consider to be a healthy plant-based diet, but they may not work for you just yet if you’re working on healing (from IBS, IBD, or other gut ailments). Here are my comments on where this food choice fit in my personal healing journey.
While I’m always going to promote a plate of kale over a cookie (in any form) for healing this was a baking option that I could enjoy early in my healing process. I kept the raisins and nuts pretty light at first, so it was basically like eating a banana that had been broken down for me and oats. I tolerated it well! Ah, dessert was in my life again, and there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Winning.
