Sweets for Your Maternal #sundaysupper

A dear friend is breastfeeding her allergic baby (3rd of 3) and gone vegan for most of her diet (besides the chicken she eats as a main course). Necessity is the mother of all invention (sorry, you know I love a good pun) and so this vegan chocolate chip cookie dough dip is good for those who need to avoid eggs or butter.

Mixes up in 10 minutes. Chill as you would a cheese ball and then surround with the fruit of your choice to feel a little less guilty.

How are you spoiling that mother figure in your life?

Sunday Supper: Chocolate Peanut Butter CHICKPEA Brownies

I like to take photos of the “before” in my cooking because often we don’t think about the ingredients that go into what we are eating. Also, most of the things I make are so scrumptious, they go straight from the plate into the belly so after photos are quite rare in our house.

These brownies made from chickpea flour are no exception! You don’t see any sugar or flour on the table, making them one of the healthiest treats around. Believe me when I say they are 100% delicious.

Grind up a can of chickpeas in your food processor for the base. I substituted honey for maple syrup the second time (yes they were that good) and the consistency was a bit softer and the color browner. Every bit as yummy as the first time!

What are you easy, healthy, go-to snacks?
