Healthy Kitchen: Gingerbread Cookie Oatmeal

During the winter months, I find myself craving the comfort food and sweet treats I grew up with. Among my favorites - a chewy on the inside, crisp along the edges, deliciously fragrant specialty full of cinnamon and clove and molasses...

These days I not only look for great taste in my baking but also healthful ingredients. With a little creative muscle, I have transformed my childhood favorites into satisfying and flavorful creations.

Enter, oatmeal - with a gingerbread twist! Other than being a nostalgic treat that takes me right back to sitting on the kitchen counter sampling my mother's delicious holiday gingersnaps, I like this particular oatmeal cookie for its ability to keep me full and to satisfy a hankering for something sweet. Best of all? I love it because it’s absolutely LOADED with nutrients!

Healthy Kitchen: Who’s Up for a Cookie Exchange?

No-Bake Sunbutter Drops 

*Dairy Free, *Gluten Free

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Yield: 20 cookies

Dietitian Confession: I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like. Chocolate chip, sugar, peanut butter – I love them all.  

And because of this, I don’t keep them in my house very often, and I have a strict rule that when I do, it’s because I’ve made them myself and put forth the effort to cure a true craving. No processed cookies allowed!

This time of year, that true cookie craving naturally comes up for me. There’s something about the cold weather that makes me want to sit by the fireplace with my family and watch holiday movies while eating cookies.

Healthy Kitchen: Chocolate Peppermint Shake

What is it about this time of year that makes us crave peppermint everything? Food companies and coffee shops are onto this, pumping out tasty (and not so healthy) treats in every peppermint variety.

But don’t let those commercial concoctions sabotage your health goals. Get your fix with this tasty recipe below!

This recipe uses our signature Chocolate VeganMax Protein powder – one of my all-time favorite powders because it is both allergen-free and made from plant proteins.
