Simple Vegan Oatmeal Cookies (GF)

This past week my daughter and I celebrated a beautiful day together doing all things girly. We painted our nails, did mud masks, had a tea party and baked cookies. No boys allowed, just us girls enjoying our femininity. It was awesome! We had so much fun together that we both agreed that we needed to do it again and set a date for next month. We are calling it our Goddess Day!

Not only was it an awesome day but we also got to enjoy these amazing vegan oatmeal cookies. They are simple to make and perfect to add to any tea party.

 They are gluten free, vegan, free of refine sugar and my favorite guilt-free. They are great for a high-fiber snack that’s as filling as they are flavorful.

What I love about these also is that you don’t have to take out your electric mixer, everything can be done from your food processor or high speed blender. Simply chop 1 large apple (which usually comes out to 1 cup of apples sauce), add flaxseeds, sweetener, nut butter, and cinnamon, pulse in food processor. Then slowly add in the oats. Pulse until dough like consistency. Then add your toppings and fold them into your batter with a spoon. Pretty simple and the clean up is so easy.

Oats have many vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin E and vitamin K. Oatmeal has been known to increase heart health, control diabetes, aid in cancer prevention, and increased immunity. It’s also known to help with weight loss since they contain high amounts of dietary fiber, nutrients, and are low in calories and fat.
