Today was filled with all the good things in life – a work out, minimal study, cooking, baking, and a evening movie with a celebratory drink.
I feel awesome!
So awesome I’m actually gonna post a recipie for the first time in forever.
My little brothers begged me into baking cookies this afternoon. But with no ingredients in the house – this turned out to be quite a challange. So opposed to following a recipie I decided to throw a bunch of ingredients together and hope for the best. And I was pretty happy with the outcome!
(PS: These look and taste like “health cookies”. I personally enjoy my cookies “real food” tasting, but they’re not exactly dessert cookies per say. I like to think of them as “brain fuel” 😉 But for being vegan, sugar free and taking exactly 5 minutes to put together – they’re not half bad .)
Oatmeal raisin chewies
– 1 cup oats
– 1 cup flour
– 1/2 – 2./3 cup water
– 1/2 cup raisins
– 1 tsp cinnemon
– 1 tsp baking powder
– peanuts, walnuts (or whatever other nut you prefer – I used peanuts because that was all we had in the house)
Mix together dry ingredietns. Pour hot water over the raisins and let them plump up. Once the water has cooled to a lukewarm temperature, blend the raisins and water together. Add to the dry ingredients. Add chopped nuts. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 15 minutes.
I ate these for snack with a bit of yogurt, and they kept me full for a good 3 hours. Lots of real food in there.
Alright, I’m off to bed. Have a great weekend everyone!

Do you prefer you desserts “healthy side”? Or are you more of the “indulgent type”? I have a very conservative sweet tooth, so I prefer to make my own desserts in favour of anything store bought.
