Plant-Based Cheesecake Snack Cookies

  Plant-based cheesecake cookie snack After making a nice tofu Mayo with no oil, no refined sugar, or salt, I began to think of the possibilty of making a similar spread with a cheesecake flavor.   And while I was at it, why not put together an SOS (no salt, oil or refined sugar) plant-based cookie to slather the cheesecake spread on. Ingredients Cheesecake Spread 500g /16 oz. firm tofu Juice of 1/2 lemon 2 tablespoons Simply Organic lemon flavoring 2 -3 tablespoons maple syrup (optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional) Snack Cookies 2 cups quick oatmeal 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce 1 tablespoon maple syrup 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted and chopped    perfect PERSONALIZED PUZZLE......                  SHOPETSY  (CLICK ON HEART) Method Cheesecake Spread (9-12 tablespoons) 1.  Drain and press extra water from tofu.  Cut in cubes and put in bowl of food processor (or blender carafe) with other ingredients.   2. Pulse until smooth and creamy.  

Raw Kale Chips Recipe-- vegan, gluten-free

This is a delicious little snackfood  that needs to be considered a "treat"  vs. an everyday staple of the raw diet.   As with many "raw" recipes, it will be necessary to dehydrate the Kale to obtain that near-the-traditional (cooked)-thing mouth appeal.  I bought myself an  Excalibur dehydrator  early on in my raw food experience but any brand will do, and if you absolutely must have the chips,  even an oven will work -- preheat your regular oven to 140 degrees Fahrenheit/60 degrees Celsius or the lowest setting, and spread out your chips on parchment paper on cookie sheets.   Put them into the oven with the door slightly propped open with a butter knife or chopstick.  Your chips (or other dehydrated foods) will take a long time to dry satisfactorily this way and it is not an environmentally friendly method, so use it sparingly, and you will likely want to invest in a dehydrator with a timer pretty soon into the process. Tools I use for the process: * Coffee Bean G

Keto Flex Recipe: Salted Almond Butter Cup Snack

This is a Keto Flex SNACK, which means it doesn't actually work as a lunch, but if you can stop at one or two of these delicious little salted almond cups , you will have energy and burn off some fat. Of course I had planned to make some peanut butter snacks, but I found out that the recipe I had called for "peanut flour" which I did NOT have, so.... I DID have an untried, unopened jar of a powder called PB & Me Powdered Almond Butter .  Since its original use is as an almond butter, but it is also a powder (as in flour?) so I thought... well, you know.... recipe experiment time!  (You can still use the plain old almond butter if you want) I am happy to say that the recipe worked out just fine! Yummy-licious in fact. WHAT YOU NEED FOR THIS RECIPE: Parchment Paper Liners or candy cups 2 Muffin Tins 9-10 oz. dark chocolate (I used  Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips- 1x9 OZ  ) 3 T. Coconut Oil ( divided in 2 for the chocolate layers) 2 tsp. Cocon
